Hello Crafters!

Getting up to date with our blog posts….

Here is a lovely card made at our regular workshops.  It is uses the ever versatile Distress Oxide ink pads, DL Collage Stamps, Sentiment Cloud Stamps and a selection of background stamps.


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

  • Base Card – A5
  • Layer 1 – 20.5 x 14 – Inked
  • Layer 2 – 20 x 13.5 – Plain
  • Layer 3 – 19.5 x 13 – background
  • Pierced Flag
  • Pierced Tag
  • Petite Butterflies

Stage 2 – choose 3 co-ordinating oxide colours. Using a smoothie apply the 3 colours to the background layer, working from the outside inwards until all the card is coloured.  Colour the edges of the 1st layer with the same 3 inks.  On our main sample card we have used Cracked Pistachio, Seedless Preserves and Broken China.

TIP – take off all the excess colour, so that this layer is more subtle.

Stage 3 – using the same 3 ink colours stamp up the background layer with the following each in a different colour:

  • Sentiment cloud
  • Background Stamp
  • Splat or DL Collage Stamp

Stage 4 – using the same 3 ink colours stamp up the pierced tags, working with 1 tag at a time.  On our main sample card with have also used Clear Embossing Powder over the top of the Oxide Inks to add extra shine.

Stage 5 – stamp you chosen sentiment onto the pierced flag.  Again we have used Clear Embossing Powder

Stage 6 – layer up your card, using foam tape to lift the 3 tags up.  Glitter the edges of the tags and flag with Twinkles Glitter Glue and add the 3 butterflies.  We have also added some seam binding or twine to our tags.
