Hello friends! This is Yana and I hope you are having a fabulous week!
For my monthly video tutorial I decided to explore a 3D decoupage look and translate it onto my cards.
3D decoupage is the art of layering paper to create a 3d effect by cutting out elements of varying sizes from a series of identical images and layering them on top of each other, usually with foam adhesive between each layer to give the image more depth.
I used the Petunia Builder stamps and dies to create a faux 3D decoupage look on my 4 Bar cards. To create a 3D decoupage look I needed to first make identical images and I did so by stamping two of each image onto white paper. My images are identical in size and I will offset them when I go to foam mount them to add additional dimension to my card.
I used my mini MISTI stamp positioner and stamped 2 sets of images - flowers and leaves using 2 sets of ink colors. I used Miami Spice, Sweet Nectar and Flamingo colors to stamp peach colored petunias and Bloomsberry, Cockleshell and Cranberry to stamp purple petunias. I also stamped leaves using Last Leaf and Appletini ink.
As soon as my stamping was done I cut these images out using coordinating dies. Since this technique requires a lot of cutting it's best to have coordinating dies for your images so that you're not doing a ton of cutting by hand.
After I die cut my flowers I noticed the centers became too pale for my taste, so I used Cranberry Crush ink and re-stamped those to make them much more prominent on my flowers. I used Cranberry crush for my peach flowers and also intensified the centers on my purple flowers by using black ink.
I made simple backgrounds using the Big Top Background stamp and stamped it using Fairy Dust Ink Color. I also added a sentiment onto each of my panels and my sentiments came from the Kind Soul stamp set.
I used two kinds of adhesive to adhere my die cut pieces - foam adhesive and glue. Glue was used to adhere leaves (the bottom layer of leaves) and foam adhesive used to adhere flowers and 2nd layer of leaves.
For a true 3D decoupage look you'll need to foam mount smaller images over your main images, but since I didn't have smaller versions for each image (I had some smaller flowers but I didn't have a smaller version of a flower that is facing sideways and smaller versions of leaves) I foam mounted identical images and simply offset them.
Lastly, I embellished my cards using few enamel dots in green.
Have fun stamping!
