Fine Art Floral Gilded Leafing Embellishment

 I've had the Gilded Leafing Embellishment for a long time now, but I've been a little reluctant to use it, due to lack of time around Christmas and lack of experience with it, but today I decided it was time to embrace that learning curve and get to know how to use it.

It is amazingly light stuff, just a puff of air will send it flying, so I'm going to find a larger, deeper container to store it in. You need Heat & Stick Powder or any other kind of sticky surface to adhere it to, such as Tear & Tape or our Seal or Adhesive sheets. I'm planning to use it when I do my Facebook Live Presentation on Monday at 11 am PST.


Here's a closer look at that gilding:

  • I started with a Basic Black card base - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4". I cut a piece of Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper to 4" x 5 1/4" and ran it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder, which enhances the texture of the paint strokes on the design.
  • I stamped the large floral bloom base in Pretty Peacock on Basic White. Then I stamped the second step stamp image in Versamark Ink and added the Heat & Stick Powder, and set it with the Heat Tool until it just becomes melted and sticky. (The minute it "disappears".)
  • I added pieces of the gold leaf to the flower and press them into the Heat & Stick powder. Then I used a soft toothbrush to rub off the excess.
  • I stamped the leaves and the sentiment (both from the same Art Gallery stamp set) in Just Jade ink and die cut them using the coordinating Floral Gallery Dies.
  • Using the Layering Oval dies, the largest plain oval was die cut from Basic White and a loop of Fine Art Ribbon adhered to the back using Stampin' Seal+. This was added to the card front.
  • The leaves were glued to the oval and the large gilded bloom was added using Stampin' Dimensionals. The sentiment was added with Mini Dimensionals. The final touch was some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.
