Floral Free for All

Spring has gone and Summer is here. Debbie Frost has created this wonderfully colorful card to get into summer spirit.

Handmade by Debbie Frost.

Debbie has used:

Craft & Mixed Media Iron S57360
Stix2 with Heat for Various Materials S57357
Stix2 with Heat Parchment Paper S57359
8" x 8" Ivory Card and Envelopes S57346
Tinted Card Cream A4250TINTCREAM
Tinted Kraft Card A4250TINTKRAFT

JGS446 Whimsical Flower- Sally Anne
FRS614 Old Letter
JWS03 Happy Birthday
Color Box Crafters inks
(Bark,  Limelight, Spiced Plum, Purple, Berry, Sunshine, Tangelo,  Jungle Green)
Woodware Craft canvas
Versafine Vintage Sepia
7mm & 15mm purple organza ribbon
s/a diamantes (coloured with Permipens)


Today I've used  the Iron on Adhesive Various Materials from the Stix2 with heat range. Simply stamp onto the fabric side of the sheet  (I've stamped 2 flowers) using Colorbox Crafters inkpad Bark. These inkpads have to be heat set so perfect for use with the Stix2 with heat range. I then added colour to the flowers with stencil brushes and the other Crafters colours. You don't need to be too careful as the flowers will be cut out.

Next I took a square of canvas and aged it a little with an ink-pad before stamping all over with "Old Letter" and Versafine. Now remove the paper backing from the cut out flowers and place them onto the canvas. Cover with a piece of parchment paper and heat using the Stix2 Craft & Mixed Media iron for about 10 seconds. Leave the paper in place until the image is completely cold before peeling gently away. Mount this onto some purple card then the cream square and add the ribbon before attaching to the craft layer on the front of the card blank. To finish stamp "Happy Birthday" and add the diamantes.
