Floral Phrases Thank You - Tissue Paper Technique

Stamping on Tissue Paper, this month's challenge with the Canadian Die Cut Exchange group, is such an easy technique to do and the only special supplies needed is a piece of white tissue paper.

I have done this technique before, but it's been a while, so I referred to a video tutorial by Brandy Cox here



The stamp set I used is one I will be using in my class this week - Floral Phrases.  I also used the Detailed Floral thinlet dies to make the sleeve for the card.

The images were stamped on Tissue Paper ( use a piece larger than the card) using Peekaboo Peach ink.  The sentiment is from "Thankful Thoughts"

When the ink was dry, the tissue paper was crumpled into a ball, then gently uncrumpled leaving in the wrinkles.

I used a glue stick to generously apply glue to a piece of Whisper White cardstock, but Mod Podge can be used as well.  The tissue paper was gently and carefully applied to the glued Whisper White piece and the excess tissue paper cut off (I used scissors, but a trimmer can be used).  This was adhered to a Peekaboo Peach mat, and a 3/8" ruffled Peekaboo Peach ribbon attached to the right side before attaching it to the Whisper White card base.

I created the card pouch using a 4 3/4 by 10" piece of Peekaboo Peach cardstock and scored it at
5 1/2".  The larger of the 2 Detailed Floral thinlet and the cutting piece were placed in the center of the top half  about 1/2" away from the score line.

After running it through the Big Shot, the edges were trimmed, the seam burnished with a bone folder, and a small bit of tombo glue applied to the outer edges to form the card pouch.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:Floral Phrases, Thankful Thoughts
Inks: Peekaboo Peach
Papers: Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White, Tissue Paper (non SU)
Accessories: Detailed floral thinlet dies, 3/8" ruffled Peekaboo Peach ribbon, rhinestones,
