This week at Perfect Sentiments we're using our scraps!
I have TONS of scraps like everyone else. Every piece on this card was already on my desk.
Even the birdcage die cut!
The burgundy strip is a left over on a Graphic45 project I made. The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of thin cardboard -I then stained it with distress ink. I stamped the sentiment and covered with black embossing powder-the whole thing was stuck with powder (I didn't let it dry good) so I just went with it. Turned around when that dried and embossed the sentiment in cherry cobbler. Turned out pretty cool!
I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it!
Does that happen to you?
I used some new products from Deco Arts.
Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister.
See the tutorial at the end of the post.

**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.
I love making gelli prints. I've used a variety of types of paints. The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints. The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate.
On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral
stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose,
Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting
them on the plate.
This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and
Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.
New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.
This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!! Except you created it yourself!
The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes.
I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!
