Just for you easel

You’ll need
kit stamp set & paper pack
white 6.5”-square tent-fold card blank
white cardstock
Abandoned Coral & Evergreen Bough Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink
VersaMark inkpad
Vintage Pearl Ranger embossing powder
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Wood Slices & Bouquet Flowers
scoreboard
twine
water spritzer bottle
ink-blending tool
heat tool

Step by step
1 Place the card blank onto a scoring board and score at 3.25” to create an easel card.
2 Cut a piece of white cardstock to 6” square then stamp a flower randomly onto it using VersaMark ink. Sprinkle with embossing powder, tip off the excess then heat using a heat tool.
3 Blend Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide Ink over the stamped flowers. The embossing resists the ink and the flowers appear in white in the background. Lightly spritz the background with water then dab dry with a piece of kitchen towel. Wrap twine around the centre of the decorative flower panel, securing in place on the back of the panel.
4 Cut a piece of patterned paper a little larger than the decorative flower panel, colour the edges with Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide Ink, attach the flower panel then adhere the decorative panel to the easel, only adding adhesive to the bottom.
5 Tie a double twine bow and adhere to the centre of the decorative panel. Colour three Bouquet Flowers with Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide Ink then fix to the centre of the bow. Add two Wood Slices to the decorative panel, one above and one below the natural bow.
6 Stamp two dragonflies onto white cardstock using Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide Ink and two using Evergreen Bough. Cut out, layer together in pairs then stick to the card front.
7 Cut a piece of patterned paper a little smaller than the base of the easel, colour the edges with Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide Ink then stick to the base of the easel. Add a Wood Slice to the base of the easel to act as the stopper.
8 Stamp a sentiment onto white cardstock using Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide Ink, cut out, apply Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide Ink around the edges then adhere to the Wood Slice.

      Hi there, Linda - The stock of kits 1 & 2 is sold out on MoreMags and CraftStash, we're afraid. Here's the link to issue 3 if you need it: https://www.moremags.com/bookazines/abkit3
