Chocolate Baroque Flower #406

Chocolate Baroque StampThis project was created for one of my club night make and takes.  The flower is Chocolate Baroque Swirl Centre Flower and I have embossed it in silver and then coloured in blue using my Koi pens.  The flower has then been cut out.  The background is a simple silver embossed with Chocolate Baroque Studded Lattice stamp.  I’ve then cut out a mount of card out of white and coloured the edge with my Koi pens to match and mounted onto a 5×7 card.  The greeting a Kaisercraft stamp from my stash and is also embossed in silver and coloured with Koi pens.

Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge Cornflower Tag #385

Chocolate Baroque Cornflower StampBack again for another entry to the Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge blog.  It’s great fun to challenge yourself with colours that you wouldn’t always use!

Today’s tag uses Distress Paints in Mowed Lawn, Antique Bronze, Antique Linen and Fossilized Amber.  I started by creating a background with the paints using a brayer and swiping different colours.  Then I have stamped using fossilized amber and the Chocolate Baroque Damask Panel stamp horizontally across the tag and then added some detail using the Open Weave stamp and Floral Weave Stamp.  The wording is from the Artistic Affirmations set.

Chocolate Baroque Cornflower StampNext I stamped my Chocolate Baroque Cornflower stamp in Archival black and coloured using my Koi Brush pens.

Some white highlighting with my White sharpie marker finishes the piece nicely.

You can join me at my workshop on Thursday 26th May 5-7 to make one of these lovely flower tags.  Just contact me to book your place.

Stampendous Bird and Blossom Stamp #381

Stampendous Bird and Blossom Stamps and DiesThis is one of my favourite creations I’ve made in a while.  The stamp is the lovely Bird and Blossom stamp from Stampendous that also has a matching die set too.  I started by stamping a selection of flowers and leaves as well as the bird and the branch and coloured them in bright colours using my Koi Brush pens using a waterbrush to get the lovely watercolour effects.  I then used the dies to cut them all out – they cut really close!

Next I used the Stampendous Pop-Up die on the blue cardstock and then stamped with a bubble effect stamp in the background in blue ink and stamped and embossed my greeting (a Stampendous stamp).  I also used the die on my backing cream card too.

Stampendous Bird and Blossom StampI’ve found it is easier to cut your card slightly larger than needed, use the die and then trim to size – much easier than trying to position the die dead centre.  By using the die on both layers, they will easily match up .  Then push out the tabs you need and build up your flowers and bird design.

Woodland Forest #380

Stampendous Forest Stamps and DiesThis gorgeous pop-up card was made using the Stampendous Forest Stamps and matching Dies together with the Stampendous Pop-up Die.

I started by stamping all the animals and lots of the bushes onto Woodware Watercolour Card.  I added colour using the Koi brush pens and blended with a waterbrush.

I used the pop-up die to create the pop-up structure and then layered up my tree and animals over the top.  This makes such a lovely fun card!

Stampendous Forest Stamps and DiesI love the way that the die set cuts so precisely, and there are three different dies to cut out the one bush stamp so you can vary the shape of the foliage in the tree.

Bah Humbug Crazy Bird #379

jan8

Love the crazy bird stamps for a Christmas card with a difference.  I’ve used the Crazy Things accessories set to add his Santa hat and deflated balloon.  I found it easier to stamp the santa hat first, then mask it off with Stix2 Masking sheets and then stamp the bird.

The bird and balloon have been coloured using the Koi Brush Pens and a little water from a waterbrush to get a lovely watercolour look.

Perfect for a Christmas card with a difference!
