Priceless Sugared Pretties…

Click on Image for Card Recipe…

Remember when you were a child on a hot summer day and there was a special event happening and your mother would dip fruit into sugar and decorate a cake… well you can dip your pretties into glitter!  This card was a really fun card to make… here’s how to make sugared pretties:

Sugared Pretties Recipe:

Supplies:

  • 1 109114 pretty flower from Stampin’ Up!s beautiful pretty box
  • 1 classic ink pad – color of your choice (I used soft sky)
  • 1 102283 versamark ink pad
  • 1 102197 powder pal
  • 1 100625 heat and stick powder
  • 1 102023 stampin’ glitter dazzling diamonds
  • 1 pair of tongs (too protect your fingers when embossing)
  • 1 10005 heat tool

Directions:

  1. Take pretty flower and press into ink pad to soak up ink color.  Using tongs, heat set.
  2. Take dyed pretty flower and press into versamark ink pad.
  3. Place dyed pretty flower into powder pal with versamarked side facing up and pour heat ‘n stick powder onto it.
  4. Pick up dyed pretty flower with tongs and take heat tool (embossing gun) and heat versamarked/heat ‘n sticked side till powder melts (be careful not to burn the pretty flower…)
  5. Place dyed pretty flower into powder pal with melted heat ‘n stick powdered side facing up and pour dazzling diamond glitter onto it.  (do this quickly while the heat ‘n stick powder is still hot and wet)
  6. Pick up dyed pretty flower with tongs and take heat tool (embossing gun) and heat versamarked/ heat ‘n sticked/glitter side a few seconds to heat set glitter.
  7. Voila – you now have a sugared pretty – aren’t they yummy?

For Card Recipe:

  • This card took about 1 hour to make for the first time.  I think I will make a whole bunch of sugared pretties and sugared butterflies ahead of time so that all I need to do is glue and assemble.  Thinking of making a few card kits for myself so that putting this together will be easier and very quick.
  • The butterfly was sugared the same way as the flower with the exception of stamping first the image onto soft sky cardstock and then placing versamark over the dried stamped image and then sugaring.  The antennaes are made from medium gauge wire from wire works and was fastened onto the card using a pop-up glue dot.
  • The sugared pretty flower was adhered to the white cardstock by using liquid glue.
  • The taffeta ribbon was dyed soft sky using a reinker – it used to be very vanilla.

    You can also try the following for a lighter effect:
    1. Soak the front of the pretty flower in versamark
    2. Pour hologram highlights on the flower
    3. Heat set using Heat Tool (Heat Gun)
    4. Voila a softer sugared pretty!
