Tip for the vase and the water faux illusion
This is so simple but allows time to let dry. Here the step by step.
- Die-cut oval 2½ x 3¾ out of window sheet. Punch out about ¼” of the 1″ circle at the top and bottom cut ½” straight (all show in the video)
- Place the window sheet (vase) onto a silicone sheet and apply the fine-tip glue or crystal effect 1½ at the bottom.
- Let dry. This will take a few hours to dry.
- Using the seaside Spray dark stamping blends color the DRY glue to give the tint of light blue for the water.
- VOILA! you have your vase with the faux illusion of water.
To build the tulips arrangement see the video. It sure look like the stems are in the water.
Tulips arrangement from the Please As Punch Designer Paper
This one I use the designer paper Pleased As Punch for the tulips and leaves. Punch out with the tulips builder punch. Vase and stem are done the same. Note that I sue the Night Of Navy blend for the water on this one. I prefer the Seaside Spry for a lighter blue. At first, I use the Seaside Spray and thought it was not dark enough well water shouldn’t be this dark. The more you try the better result you get, right? Also the water I use the crystal effect you can see the sparkle in the water.
Tip to align the stamps with the tulip builder punch
Starting with a strip of 3″ wide of whisper white card stock punch out the tulip with leaves at one end. Place the negative at the corner of the Stamparatus. Place the large tulip inside the opening, flat side facing up. Close one of the plates and press on the stamp, lift and it is all align and ready to stamp. Repeat for the leave using the other plate. This way you will have one plate with leave and one plate with the tulips so it is easy to stamp in different colors.
Now start the stamping. Using a strip of 3″ wide stamp the tulip and leave, punch out then cut out the negative and repeat for more flower….. All is shown in the video.
