Crafter’s Companion Carnation Stamp and Dies

I just wanted to post a few photos of some projects that I have been working on with the Crafter’s Companion, Sheena Douglass’s Perfect Partners Carnations Stamps and Dies.

These dies are awesome, you can cut 6 sheets of printer paper at a time which really speeds up projects, combine that with using the Gemini Die cutting machine and you are on a roll!

To build the flowers, I took 3 each of the 2 different petal sizes.  After die cutting then ink up the stamps and place the petals into the stamps to apply the ink. Your next step is to watercolour the flowers in your choice of colour (now you need to be super careful as the wet printer paper becomes very delicate).

To speed up the process I used my heat gun to dry the flowers, before flipping the over and painting on the reverse.

As you know, I love sparkle so I then brushed over the petals with a clear glitter pen.

Glue up the flowers layering one on top of the other  and once set, scrunch the petals together and shape to your liking. Repeat the whole process with the leaves and presto, you have gorgeous flowers to use for loads of different projects.
