Sentiment Cloud with Distress Oxides

Hello Crafters!

Here is a card made by crafters at our regular workshops. All cards featured are made by our crafters 🙂

This card uses Phill’s new Sentiment Cloud Stamps and Distress Oxide Inks.  It also features Sue Wilson Peony Flower, Maidenhair Fern and Pierced Flags.


Stage 1 – Cut out all the layers and die cut pieces needed as below:

  • Card Blank – 21cm x 17.5cm
  • Layer 1 – 20cm x 16.5cm
  • Layer 2 – 19.5cm x 16cm (embossed)
  • Layer 3 – 16.5cm x 13cm
  • Layer 4 – 16cm x 12.5cm (cloud stamp)
  • Pierced Flags
  • Complete Peony

Stage 2 – To colour the embossed layer use a brayer and ink up your chosen Distress Oxide Colour.  Lightly run the brayer over the embossed side (don’t put too much pressure on).  You might need to re-ink a few times.


Stage 3 – To stamp the Senitment Cloud you need to stamp in twice.  Ink the Sentiment Cloud generously with the Distress Oxide and stamp the top half, pressing firmly.  Apply clear embossing powder over the stamped image and use a heat gun to gently set the powder to a lovely glossy finish. Repeat with bottom half of the layer.

TIP – Don’t worry if there is a slight gap where the two stamps meet; this will be hidden with the pierced flag.


Stage 4 – To colour the flowers press the Distress ink onto a blending mat so that there is a good covering.  Spray with water until small droplets appear, then rub the flowers into the colour.  Leave to dry naturally as this will create a lovely effect.

TIP – some of our lovely crafters added a background stamp over their flowers to create more interest.  This is a lovely effect!

Stage 5 – Stamp your chosen sentiment onto the Pierced Flag and add clear embossing powder if you wish

Stage 6 – Shape your flowers and assemble your layers, using foam tape on the top layers to add dimension.  Add pearls or Pearl PVA to the centre of the flower and any glitter as you wish.
