Stamp-a-Faire 2016 – Gilded in Gold – With Gratitude Card

Hello, and welcome back to another fun project from Papertrey Ink’s Stamp-a-Faire 2016.


It’s been fun taking inspiration from the masters, and learning about some that I wasn’t familiar with… like Gustav Klimt, who is featured in the Gilded in Gold session. There is an interesting video on his work on the post for this session that you can find HERE.

Here is my finished card:


I had fun with the gilding! I took a cereal box and cut out the frame, then just dabbed on the Liquid Leaf. (Warning: FYI, if you have any kind of chemical sensitivity, this stuff is strong… right up there with paint and nail polish remover.)


It was SO EASY and I got a little on my hands which made me immediately want to play, so I gilded my nail. If this stuff wasn’t carcinogenic, I’d consider it for party nails. : )


Of course, I immediately removed it – while humming ‘Goldfinger.’ Lol!.

Tip: If you don’t have gold cardstock, you can easily make your own… either gilding with liquid leaf, or dragging a gold ink pad across the edges of white cardstock.


I used Delicata ink, which has an amazing shine. It provides an interesting contrast to the classic gold of the gilding.


Materials used:

  • Papertrey Ink Spiral Bouquet stamp set
  • Papertrey Ink Stamp-a-Faire 2014: Renaissace stamp & die set
  • Plaid Liquid Leaf – classic gold
  • Tsukineko Delicata Golden Glitz pigment ink
  • Recollections cardstock – white and black
  • Misc. adhesives and cereal box.

I’m playing along with the following challenges – click on them you want more information:

I’ll be back shortly with the next session’s card. See you soon!
