This is also a good one to enter in the Simon Says Challenge this week. The stamp you love...(but don't use) I have to admit the only reason I haven't used these stamps is the fact that they are new.
Here's how I did it!
1/4" high - so following Karen's directions I marked my die at 2 1/8" and placed the fold of the cardstock on the taped line. I cut the Accordion Die Frame from Stampin Up, Perfect Plum. I wanted 4 sections so of course cut it 4 times.
For the next step I stamped my images with black Versa Fine Ink and then used clear embossing powder and then heat set. I colored selected sections of each stamp with Prismacolor Pencils and inked the edges of each panel with Perfect Plum ink.
I had an old AccuCut Pad that I cut with the Tim Holtz Scissors and placed it on top of the folder. I taped the pad down to the folder so it wouldn't move when going through the machine. After it is run through the machine it is embossed only where the pad was placed.
After joining all the sections and adding the stamped images it's time to join the panels with the tabs and embellish, my favorite part.
A few flowers from the Tattered Flower Garland Die, edged with Perfect Plum, and a couple things from my stash - it's good to go.
SPRING HAS SPRUNG - ENJOY !!
