"Clearly" With Love!

Hi there,

Today, I'd like to share something a little different. I was cleaning up in my stamping room/and everything else room (luckily I have a split wall and I'm behind it) The rest is a complete utter mess right now! February's project maybe???? As I was putting things in their correct places I came across this product that I didn't even know I had "Clearly For Art: Modeling Film". So I decided to give it a go! After you stamp, you can color with alcohol inks and then heat set it, and actually mold it into whatever shape you like!

So I started off with the flowers and leaves from the Sparkle N Sprinkle Build-a-Flower Set 811. You need to use Archival Jet Black Ink for this technique.

I actually rubbed off the veins (using the alcohol blending solution) from the leaves before using them, as I thought it would have competed with the veins in the flowers. I stamped the flowers and leaves from Set 811 and then used Adirondack Inks: Meadow, Lettuce for the leaves and Cranberry and Purple Twilight for the flowers. Just daubed them on with a little blending solution.

I wanted the flowers and leaves to have center stage and so looked for something to display them on. I found the Poppy Large Circle Burst Die. Punching holes in the three leaves first and combining it with the big flower and threading it through the front of the Circle Burst, then the two other smaller flowers were positioned on either side:

The sentiment from Blossom Sets 429 was stamped in Versamark and then heat set with Belgian Cream on the black card front. All the corners were cut off at this point with the corner rounder.

A sheer green ribbon was threaded through on the opposite side of the flowers.

I then decided that it should become an easel card at this point.

Nuvo Jewel Drops: Pale Periwinkle and Key Lime were added to the corners of the card front. The sheer Lime Green Ribbon was just mounted on top of Mounting Tape to give the Easel it's "stop". "With Love" from Wetlands 2 Set 791 was stamped above the "stop".

That completes my project for today!

Hope you've enjoyed your stay today, please let me know in the comment section.

  11. What a beautiful card did you make, Shona, I love the way you have made the flowers and the leaves, wonderful!!!

    Have fun!!

  12. Such a fun project, Shona! Your shaped petals and leaves are gorgeous! They look like glass in the photo! Beautiful! Thanks for sharing about your "cleaning" day - I want to do a bit deeper cleaning in my room as well, but have some other "deep cleaning" projects happening elsewhere in the house just now. Stay warm, my sweet NJ friend! hugs, de

  13. So pretty! Never heard of this product before, but how transparent those lovely flowers are. Didn't you pick the perfect colors to show so nicely too! Love the radiating circles around that center opening, which allows these elegant flowers to shine. Enjoyed the pictorial how-to's. You always find the neatest products to use on your cards, and this looks so good as an easel card too. TFS & Hugs

  14. Wowzers Shona...what a beautiful card and gorgeous flowers!! It is absolutely stunning!! I have some of that film and have one card I made a flower with it a few years ago, I need to clean and purge this room, but I am such a hoarder when it comes to paper crafting...LOL

  15. Oh Shona, how absolutely gorgeous! I love this technique - it reminds me a bit of the shrinky dinks we had as kids (piece of plastic, put it in the little kids' oven and watch it melt!) SUPERB color choice and they are a fabulous accent to your card. I hope you find more things you forgot you had, LOL - because this is fabulous! Hugs, my friend!
