Hello and welcome to my blog. It’s the first Saturday of the month and that means it’s the Stamping with Friends Technique Blog Hop. My fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and I will be sharing with you a technique that I hope you will try yourself. It is called the Paper Kintsugi Technique.
Per Wikipedia, “Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum.”
For my card, I used the Delightfully Eclectic 12″ X 12″ (30.5 X 30.5 CM) Designer Series Paper. This extra-generous stack of paper has designs you can use for holidays, birthdays, seasons, and everyday use.
This is the pattern I choose from the pack. Isn’t it gorgeous?
This is how the paper looks after I did the tearing.
I applied Versamark ink on the edges by dabbing it and used the Gold Embossing Powder from the Metallics Embossing Powders. I love how it turned out.
Night of Navy card stock was used for the card base and Fresh Freesia card stock for the panel. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Bold Bouquet Photopolymer Stamp Set. Stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black on Basic White card stock and die-cut it with the Nancy Fancy dies. Adhered the sentiment die-cut to a Garden Green die-cut and popped up using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love to add embellishments to my cards and the embellishment used are from the Pastel Adhesive Backed Sequins.
I am very happy with how my card turned out. The Paper Kintsugi Technique is inspired by Beth Rush and you can see her video here. Click on “Next Blog” to see my friend Deb’s inspiration for the Paper Kintsugi technique.
