Description

Dual-purpose Groovi Mat: Our high quality Groovi embossing mat has been designed to achieve professionally finished parchment work. The soft side is ideal for embossing your artwork with the larger embossing tools, and to add that wonderful parchment shading. The rigid side is perfect as a surface for colouring in your artwork. It can also be used as a general craft mat. Turn the artwork and build the outer frame, then simply fill in all the dots. These grids really are a dream to use. Imagine having to count all these patterns out of a plain grid! That’s what parchers used to do! Gasp. All you have to do now is count the repeat patterns up the side of the grid! Ten here. I got everything out of the cupboard for this one!!And you may be thinking that’s a helluva cost attached to one card!! Hahahaha. I know, right? But actually, that’s the bulk of the entire Parching stash! It’s like most hobbies. You need your basic tools. And with parching, it’s no different. If you’re looking for a beautiful hobby, look no further! Groovi Pergamano art is wonderful. And the Starter Kit is the starting place.

Another layer of whitework can still be done after you’ve perforated. Just be careful around the holes. This artwork is really starting to take shape, isn’t it. While she’s drying, let’s decide on the size of our frame. We are using the King Charles plate. ALL Josie’s grids work beautifully, by the way. Slot the grid plate into the Groovi Plate Mate from the Starter Kit. Pop the poppet over the top and count along the top pattern. I think I will use the whole frame. ie. all 10 repeat patterns. Set Presh to one side, and Groovi Plate Mate (GPM): The GPM holds your Groovi Plate (GP) in place while you work. It is also an invaluable design plate in itself. As promised, here is the stamping step by step on parchment I rustled up yesterday, using Josie’s King Charles Grid Plate and the new Poppet called Presh…I shall put an ingredients list at the end for you.

Groovi Plate Mate (GPM): The GPM holds your Groovi Plate (GP) in place while you work. It is also an invaluable design plate in itself. The Starter Kit includes the Letterbox ABC. Picot Crosses now. There are pleant of them. Just remember to keep the scissorss over the part that is going to fall out. You can see here my fiest one was ropey. The second one and all thereafter were better. So. Do the first one on scrap, to get your eye in!

Assembly time. Here’s how to use brads to attach layered parchment art. Super foam underneath, or cutting foam. Layer your work as you want to attach it. In the top left hand corner perforate all the layers with a bold 1 needle tool. Hold the work while you press a Pergamano brad through that hole. Leave the brad in the foam cushino underneath. Next, do the same in the bottom righthand corner. Then do the other two corners.

Cut out a piece of designer card out at the same time. I went with a blue and red Northern Lights Petite topper card. Any die cutting machine will do the job. We sell the Gemini, because that’s the one I like and use, but my friends use loads of different ones. I shall get in touch with Linda, Hazel and Glynis, and fire up a Zoom snipping coffee morning for us. In fact, we ought to think about a Zoom whitework morning too! And a Zoom Gridwork morning! Leave it with me xxx Groovi Embossing Tools: Our Groovi Plates are designed to work perfectly with a 0.8mm - 1.3mm Groovi Embossing Tool. Position the parchment so it lays over the 5 th largest square – your two embossed lines will now lay over the 7 th& 9 th largest squares. If you fancy trying this out yourself, we’ve added some sales to items to help you on your way! You can find them all on this tutorial link.

Card layer. Picot cut a piece of the same Designer paper from the Northern Lights as you used for the petite centre. Attach it to the correct cardblank. I went with 7×7 in. place another piece of A5 parchment on top of the pattern, using the embossed line around the edge as your guide. We are embossing first, so have the plate round the right way, with the engraved side facing up. If you look at the second photo, you can see how I am travelling around the outer edge with all the embossing dots first. You can use the Pergamano 1.5 embossing tool, or the No. 2 tool from our Groovi Starter Kit.

You will be perforating ON THE FRONT, so flip your artwork too. Look at the large photo below. The dark dots are the ones you have already embossed. The more faded dots are the actual holes in the grid. Position the parchment so that the faded dots sit perfectly around your embossed work, and secure with Groovi tabs. Using a sprig from the centre tree, emboss this four times and then add a single leaf randomly (I used the top leaf in the tree on the right). So while the whitework is cooling off and resting, let’s make a start on the perforating. Flip the Grid plate in the plate mate. I find the lightwave is a Godsend when you are perforating. Sandwich the Super foam between the Lightwave and the Plate Mate with the flipped Grid plate. If you can read Perforate this side up, you’re good to go!
