Today I am sharing a new stencil design ....we are calling it Vintage Decor (LX7022). You won't be able to find it for another week or so, because our retailers are just now finding out about it too. I have to admit I really enjoyed doing this card in an Autumn colorway and with Art Institute glitter.
I started by paste-embossing the Vintage Stencil with Dreamweaver Glossy Green Embossing Paste (DGGP). After removing the stencil and while the image was still wet I sprinkled the leaves with Bavarian Forest, a microfine Art Glitter. Next I sprinkled the pod or flower portion with Bordello, another microfine Art Glitter. I set this aside and let it dry...then the real fun began.
I had some citron colored Swarovski crystals and glued them onto the dots...oooooo, so sparkly! Gem tack Glue from Beacon is my fave for attaching crystals. But it also came in handy for the next part of this design. I squirted dollops of the Gem Tack glue onto the leaves and used a toothpick to move the glue to within a 1/16th of an inch of the design and then sprinkled on Art Glitter's Nutmeg colored glitter. Then repeated on the central leaves using Art Glitter Chartreuse colored glitter....and finally the flower or pod was done with Pumpkin colored glitter. Adding this glue and glitter embellishing really added triple dimension to the piece. It did take awhile for the glue to dry...maybe two or three hours, but the results were so smashing that it was worth the wait. I tied up a scrumptious May Arts ribbon for a finishing accent and there it is a new design to share.
Don't hesitate to take the tour and see what the team has been up to lately...BTW, they love your comments even when we aren't having a hop:
