Papertrey June Blog Hop Challenge - A Touch of Gold Take Two

OK, so I had way too much fun creating this next card. My first submission for the Papertrey Ink's June Blog Hop Challenge was a little more traditional, you can view it here. I was playing around with my glue gun, embossing powder and re-inkers and came up with this.

*** I have replaced my original video tutorial with a link to a new tutorial that I created for Split Coast Stampers. You can view that video here***

 I used sketch #33 at CAS(E) this Sketch for my card design. To apply the glue to this panel, simply start to apply the glue to the paper and pull the glue gun down into the pattern that you want, dragging the glue with it. The glue in the bottom left corner was simply dropped onto the paper.






Supplies - Standard A2 size
Stamp - Botanical Silhouettes (PTI)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Re-inkers - Honey, New England Ivy, Twilight (CTMH)
Paper - White Daisy CS (CTMH), watercolour paper (90 lb)
Other - glue gun, gold Embossing Powder (CTMH), spray bottle, paint brush

  14. I wondered why anyone would want to put tinted glue on their creation. You just answered that question!!! Your cards are beautiful. I will need to come back and visit when I have time. Thank you for sharing these.

  15. Hi Connie; I'm back again. I love being able to get an email when a select group of people post. I would not want to miss a single one of your creations, but I don't see a place on your blog to click for that. If you don't already have that ability, would you consider adding it? I know that I would not be the only visitor who would enjoy this option. (I think I found mine in Blogger's design page.) Thank you.
