Thinking Teal


I LOVE this border stamp from JustRite.  I like to stamp it and heat emboss it with black.  Then I can color it as I wish and add different sentiments to the center to create a wide variety of card toppers.  I also like that it was designed to coordinate with a Spellbinders die so is easy to cut out.

Materials:
  • "Good Friends Labels Twenty-Nine" and "Grand Sentiments" stamp sets (JustRite)
  • Labels Twenty-Nine dies (Spellbinders)
  • Gold glimmer paper
  • Teal card stock
  • Smooch inks - Ocean Soul, Sugarberry, Green Apple, Gold Lame
  • Embossing ink
  • Black embossing powder
  • Paper Piercer
  • Piercing Ruler

Method:
  1. Create focal element: Die cut white card stock with largest Labels 29 die. Stamp with embossing ink and heat emboss with fine black embossing powder.  Then color with Smooch inks.
  2. Mat with Gold: Die cut gold piece with largest Labels 29 die.  Cut into quarters, round the ends of each and glue in place.
  3. Background: Pierce teal background all around the edge using a piercing ruler and paper piercer. Glue to card and then add matted focal element.
