May Arts Ribbon and an Embossing Powder Tree Line

  • Assortment of May Arts Ribbon
See Stampendous Official Contest Rules for details.
Here is my project for the day:

My Colors Card Stock in Charcoal and Sky
Glue Dots
Heat Tool

1) The card base is 9” by 5 ¾” folded on top
2)  Either soap the back the Tree Line Stencil or cover it with Versamark.  You need to create a light film across the back that makes the stencil easy to remove from the adhesive on the mounting paper.
3)  Cut the mounting paper to match the sizes of the stencil.
4)  Remove one side of the coverings on the double sided mounting paper and place the stencil, soap or Versamark side down, on the paper.
5)  Pour the colored (non-silver) embossing powders over the stencil in strips and then blend the colors together with your finger.
9)  Place the project upside down on a flat surface and carefully peel the mounting paper off of the stencil.
10)  Use the heat tool to emboss the image.
11)  Cover the newly revealed sticky paper with Aged Silver Embossing Enamel and press down lightly with your finger.
12)  Pour the Sterling Silver Embossing Enamel in the areas that seem a little bare.
13)  Emboss with your heat tool.
14)  Assemble the card.  Remember that removing the backing from the Double Sided Mounting Adhesive makes it into a sticker.
