Thanks For All Your Kindness

If you were here looking a couple of days ago you would have seen the rainbow flowers card I did using all those little petals from this die cut piece. 
I decided I couldn't throw away the negative here so I made another card. If you haven't seen my other post this panel is just watercolour paper with Distress Inks painted on and blended slightly then flicks of water on it after it had dried. I make lots of these panels as they come in handy for so many things and no skill required.

I attached the panel to my card front induct the card down slightly to be the same size as the panel.
I used the die from Gina Marie Designs and this time I cut a white glitter version.

Once it had been through the Big Shot I lifted the  top plate of the Big Shot off and all the pieces stayed in place, I then covered the piece with some Press and Seal and pressed it down so that when I removed the die plate the pieces would all stay in place.

Of course I forgot to take that photo but here you can see the piece laying on the press and seal, imagine all the petals are in place. This makes it a lot easier to transfer the pieces rather than guessing where they fit in.

I didnt add double sided tape this time as it was very slow and laborious removing the paper layers from each piece, I also found most of them fell out so I had to spend a lot of time trying to work out where they went.

This way the 'Press and Seal' kept everything in place. This white glitter is more like a very thin material sort of fluffy on the back, it didnt cut when I used the Cuttlebug but since getting the Big Shot it cuts perfectly and looks fantastic.

I added
this fabulous glue to all the little empty spaces and smeared as I went. You can add all the glue as it dries tacky (it's also fantastic for repositional gluing as in for masking, so you can cut a mask on plain paper and just add this stuff, smear and leave to dry). Will hold masks in place or in this instance I could add pieces and re position if it was crooked no messy glue. Any I got on the painted piece dries clear so you cant see it. Love it, my favourite glue.

As you can see here, all the pieces fit perfectly and it looks so pretty. I finished off with the Simon Says wafer die 'thanks' cut in gold mirror cardstock.

Of course nowwww I have a glitter white outline to use for another card mmmm, perfect for a Christmas card I think.


Thanks so much for coming to visit and I hope you come to visit again soon. xx

A wonderful rainbow card. So joyful. Thank you for your insights about this glue. I always wondered how it works and how to glue which materials it suits.

A wonderful rainbow background. Perfect for this pressed flower paste. Very clever you used a background cutter to create a stencil ..
