Saturday Showcase - Seth Apter Baked Velvet Powders and Tim Holtz Typography Collage Paper

Hi everyone and welcome to another Saturday Showcase, the Design Team's chance to share tutorials and products available from The Funkie Junkie Boutique with you and kick start your creative weekend. Today I'm sharing the tutorial for two cards made combining Seth Apter's new Baked Velvet Embossing Powders with Tim Holtz new Typography Collage Paper and Wildflower Stems Thinlits Die Sets. Here are the finished cards (click on each image for a closer look);

Let's get started on making these cards. Begin by covering a 6 inch wide piece of white card with the Typography Collage Paper using Distress Collage Medium Matte and a Collage Brush to stick it in place.

Using the Wildflower Stems dies cut various stems and flowers from the Collage Paper card.

Apply embossing ink over some of the thinner stems and cover with the Aegean Sea Baked Velvet Embossing Powder. Since these powders are translucent when heat set you can still see all the detail from the Collage Paper underneath and the various shades of yellow/brown will also affect the colour seen on top.

Repeat the process for the leaf stems, this time using Dusk Baked Velvet Embossing Powder.

Repeat the process for the flower stems, this time using Vintage Beeswax Baked Texture Embossing Powder.

Cut pieces of white card to fit your card blanks and stamp lines of stitching using Tim Holtz Stitches stamp set with Wendy Vecchi Peat Moss Archival Ink. I used a Stamp Platform for this so that I could easily stamp the same images onto separate pieces of white card for each card.

Apply Opaque Texture Paste through some of the Stitched Layering Stencil between the stamping and leave to air dry.

Stick pieces of lace over the stamping - I used Venise Lace Trim and Metallic Gold Crocheted Ribbon, both available from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

To finish glue the embossed leaf stems and flowers over the lace and ribbon before adding a Transparent Wings butterfly and stamped sentiment (the two used for these cards came from Wendy Vecchi's new Delightful Art Stamp/Stencil set). Matt the card onto a kraft layer before adding to the card blank.

Here are some close ups so you can see more of the detail;

Hopefully this tutorial will kick start your own ideas for using Seth Apter's new Baked Velvet Embossing Powders and Tim Holtz Typography Collage Paper. Don't forget, if you use tissue in your projects there's still time to enter the current Frilly and Funkie challenge 'Pass The Tissues, Please!'

All the products used are available from The Funkie Junkie Boutique and are listed below.

Have a great weekend,
