Materials:

  • Fuse Creativity System® Starter Set
  • Medium Design Set 100850 - Bird
  • Medium Design Set 101900 - Frame
  • Stamp Block Set
  • The Original Orange-Handled Scissors™ (8")
  • Metal Tray
  • Embossing powder
  • Embossing inkpad
  • Embossing heat gun
  • Linen
  • Chipboard

  • 2-inch foam brush

Instructions:

  1. To begin, spread a sheet of parchment paper on your work surface to protect it. Lay your chipboard on the parchment, and coat it generously with PVA, Mod Podge, or similar glue using a sponge brush. Lay a piece of linen on top of the glue-coated chipboard and smooth it out with your hands. Flatten any creases or bubbles.  Apply a coat of glue on the fabric surface, smooth out again, and allow it to dry.

  2. Once dry, flip it over, coat the backside of the chipboard, apply a second piece of linen to the back, smooth and coat with glue. Set aside to dry.
     
  3. Use your Fuse Creativity System to cut out a frame, a bird and a few flowers from the sandwiched linen and chipboard.

  4. Stamp a few flowers on each bird, frame or flower using the Asian-Inspired Clear Stamps and an embossing ink pad.
     
  5. Dust the inked areas with embossing power. Tap the inked pieces to knock off any excess embossing powder. Heat the inked/powdered areas using an embossing gun. Be careful not to burn your fingers!

  6. Once the pieces have cooled, color in the flower petals with gouache or watercolor paints and a small brush. Set aside to dry.

  7. Stamp a few floral motifs in the corners of a metal tray. Dust the inked area with embossing powder, remove the excess powder and heat the inked areas with an embossing gun. If necessary, hold your tray with a hot pad to protect your fingers. The metal warms fast.
