All That You Are - Dimensionally

I love to craft and have delved into many things over the years: cake decorating, painting, embroidery, knitting, ceramics, porcelain painting ..... and I've found some of the techniques transfer very helpfully to cardmaking.  At this point I'm wondering why I never tried paper tole!

I have absolutely no idea how to do paper tole - which is quite apparent - but I still quite like my finished card.

Layering individual petals onto the flower provides a bit of 3D depth
All That You Are stamp set
I stamped the image onto Gray Granite card with Gray Granite ink and then stamped the flower several more times onto a strip of Gray Granite card.

I coloured the images with Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers - both on the card front and on the separate strip.  Each of the flowers on the strip yielded only one or two petals because I cut them to ease overlapping and gluing.

After cutting them out and lightly curling with the help of a bone folder,  I applied a shiny layer to the individual petals with a Fine Tip Glue Pen because I wanted to give them a bit more substance.

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!

  1. OH! WOW! Incredibly beautiful, Stephanie! I love how this turned out!! This is amazing! So...the lighter color at the top of the petals is a stampin' blend also? It almost looks white... Would love to know what color blends you used for the flower petals. I've never tried the blends on colored cardstock but I know now I have to give it a try! I am so inspired! TFS!

    1. Thank you, RaeDeen - your enthusiasm has given me a smile amidst tricky times!
      I should have written down the colours but I'll do my best to remember. I think I put some Dark Cherry Cobbler for the darkest shadows and then another darkish colour - possibly either Dark Lovely Lipstick or Dark Real Red. I sure I used some Calypso Coral but not sure whether dark, light or both and by the time I got to the top it was really pale (it didn't leave much colour but helped with the blending)- I think that was one of the Petal Pinks. I used two greens. I'm pretty sure one was Granny Apple Green and the other one I think was Call Me Clover ... but it could have been a light Shaded Spruce.
      I'm so sorry that I didn't take proper notes for you. I recommend testing colours on a scrap of the same colour cardstock.
      Do let me know how you go!

  2. Thank you so much, Stephanie! I appreciate you racking your brain to help me out. :) We are in a winter storm warning till tomorrow with 5-10" of snow forecast with winds up to 25 mph.....Hopefully I'll get a chance to give this a try...However, I have to clean my stampin' room first! YEEK! Not a 15 minute job either...Why do I have to get out every single thing I have to make one card...and then my brain gets so excited with another idea and I don't put things away that I used on the last project...until things start falling off my desk onto the floor (or the garbage can). At that time it's either time to put things away or stack them somewhere else. I'm out of stackable places so guess it's now time to clean! :) Wishing you a day filled with Peace, Love, and Joy! Big Hugs, Girlfriend!

    1. You're welcome! Good luck with the cleaning. I'll swap some 41C heat for a bit of snow - but only for about 5 minutes! Hugs back x
