Perfect Paper Crafting + Right At Home!

Hi everyone it’s Holly here today and this month the Perfect Paper Crafting team is joining up with Right at Home  showcasing the Simple Sentiments Stamp set. I’ve been a fan of Nicole’s line since the beginning and the is a must have set for your Crafty Stash.

I started out by embossing the Flowers from the RAH Abstract Florals set  onto some Watercolor paper with White Embossing powder. Then I added some Distress ink in Picked Raspberry, Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade with a brush and water.

Once the background was dry I added some more images from the set with VersaFine Black Onyx ink.

Then I trimmed the panel using the Perfect Ruler and the Perfect Little Cutting Mat.  I also used the Perfect Layers Mini Layering Tool to create a Black layer that would be 1/4” bigger then the image panel and I adhered both pieces to a white card base slightly off set with some Foam tape.

I used the Beautiful die cut from My Favorite Things and die cut four from some white card stock and stacked them together with liquid glue and adhered them to the front of the card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Right At Home Simple Sentiments set onto some black card stock and heat embossed it in white and trimmed it into a Banner and added it just above the Beautiful Sentiment.

A Little Note to Say Hello card

 

 

Instructions:

  • Place the Perfect Cutting Mat underneath desired cutting area.
  • Using the Perfect Layers Mini 1/8” trim around using green patterned paper as guide.
  • ***** please note that in the following photo my cuts appear different than described above. I did not have a large enough floral paper piece and I wanted to use it so I improvised by adhering this piece to the green patterned paper and after trimming with the tools, I cut this in half before adhering to yellow base paper.

  • Adhere large base pieces to card base.
  • Place the Perfect Tears– Perfect Wave Tool- Small Wave Edge along bottom edge of the long area on the backside of paper strip/piece. Press down on edge with one hand, while tearing paper upward toward you. Be sure to hold tool down firmly and pull with a bit of force to get a clean cut.
