Stampbord Card project by Christine Webb



5” square card blank (I used linen effect card)
2 x 1” squares of Stampbord
3 scraps of card leftovers (mine were already sprayed using Oak House Studio 
                              Peter’s Pear,  Bramley Apple, Citrus Lemon, Pumpkin Pie and Bottled Sunshine. 

Yummy Chocolate, Triple Meadow Greens, Triple Autumn Leaves,  Triple Fruity Reds.

Texture Elements set and English Garden Words background 

Clear embossing powder.

All three card panels were sprayed with partly diluted pure colour, swiped while wet to spread the colour a little more evenly and allowed to dry.

The square panel (Peter’s Pear) was stamped with the rose background from the texture elements using Pumpkin Pie Pure Colour applied with a sponge, cut to 1.75” square and edged with the orange from the triple Autumn Leaves ink pad.

The large oblong panel (Citrus Lemon and Bottled Sunshine) was stamped using the Summer words stamp and Yummy Chocolate ink pad, cut to 2”x 2.75” and edged with Yummy Chocolate.

The tall narrow panel (Bramley Apple) was stamped using the vine scroll stamp from the texture elements set and the Triple Meadow Greens ink pad, cut to 1” x 2.5” and edged with lightest green from the same ink pad.

The first Stampbord panel was inked with the Yummy Chocolate ink pad and triple embossed. The vine scroll stamp was pressed firmly into the final still molten layer and left till it was set. A solvent-based ink pad was rubbed across the embossed design to highlight it.

The second Stampbord was swiped with citrus yellow pure ink and allowed to dry. The large single flower stamp from the texture elements was stamped in the brightest shade from the triple reds ink pad. This was dried then triple-embossed using a clear ink pad.

The panels were assembled on the card and attached with 3D glue gel. Then a selection of circles was punched out of leftover scraps of inked card using a standard-sized file paper punch and added to the finished card.

I really hope you are tempted to try Stampbord Don't forget to show us what you make!
