Let’s Create; A Watercolour Ice Cream

Hi Everyone
Today I’m sharing with you a card I made using watercolour pencils with the Ice Cream Treats Stamp. Although I normally colour with alcohol markers & pencils, I do like to try different techniques when stamping images. In this step by step tutorial I’ll will talking you through how I stamped the Ice Cream using two different coloured ink pads.

Below we will list just what materials you’ll need.

What You Need

8×8 Card Blank
TLD – Ice Cream Treats Clear Stamp Set
TLD – 4mm & 6mm Mixed Coloured Pearls
TLD – Sweet Treats Paper Pack
Gold Mirror Card
Watercolour Card
White 210gsm Card
Hexagon Nesting Dies
Square Nesting Dies
Memento Ink Pads – Desert Sand, Rose Bud, Dandelion, Bahama Blue
Watercolour Pencils
Embossing Folder

Step By Step

Step 1: With your square nesting dies – cut the largest to fit the 8×8 card blank in the gold mirror card. Then take the next die size down & cut a square in the white card.

Step 2: Take your momento ink pads and on a glass matt – press a little ink down of each colour separately & add a touch of water to each inked dab. Now with the small ice cream clear stamp press the stamp into the first colour of watery ink & start stamping to create a backing paper on the white card. Don’t worry if the ink runs you want the mini ice creams to look like they have a watercolour/sketchy feel.

Step 3: Once background is finished & dry matt & layer the stamped background onto the gold mirror card & stick them both onto the card blank.

Step 4: Take a large hexagon nesting die which will fit the 8×8 card – cut the first hexagon in gold mirror card & with an embossing folder run it through your die cutting machine. With the next hexagon size die down cut a hexagon in the waffle paper from the Sweet Treats paper pack. With another hexagon die down cut a piece of watercolour card.

Step 5: Now with the watercolour card – your ready to start stamping the large Ice Creams (you will also need to create a mask on a scrap piece of paper)
Start with the center cone – inking up just the cone of the ice cream with Desert Sand ink pad first – careful not to go over the top line of the cone. Now ink up the Ice Cream part of the stamp in your chosen colour – I’ve stamped blue for my first cone.

Step 6: Now repeat the stamping using different colour for the ice creams – masking off the center ice cream

Step 7: Using the watercolour pencils start painting the ice creams. Once you’ve finished ink around the edge of the hexagon.

Step 8: Finish off by matt and layering all the hexagons – I’ve put foam tape on the back of the watercolour card. Die cut small hexagons for the sentiment. Pearls have been glued into each corner

New Release; Beautiful Chrysanthemum’s

Hi Everyone
We are back with a Brand New Release! You know we love our floral’s & we have a few lovely release to come very soon – but today’s is the wonderful Chrysanthemum’s, which look so beautiful shaded in. With Mother’s Day (UK) coming up soon this digi stamp would be perfect for a special card.

Card sample One

For the first sample I’ve gone bold and bright with oranges and yellows. Keeping it fairly simple with matt and layering & die cutting. To start I’ve stamped around the edge of of the card base with small flower from our Chrysanthemum Flower Head Polymer Stamps. Die cutting a piece of burnt orange mirror card & embossed it with a dotty check embossing flower (which I think is from Tattered Lace). To stay with the checked theme I’ve selected a paper from our ‘Sunny Sunflowers‘ Paper Pack.
After shaded the Chrysanthemum Digi Stamp – I’ve die cut – glittered the edge & pop foam pads on the back – & made the sentiment into a flag. Finishing off with some of our coloured mixed Pearls.

Sample Card Two

For the second sample we’ve created this gorgeous, eye catching purple Chrysanthemum card. I’ve folded a piece of A4 card in half to create an A5 card & then cut the front in half. Die cutting squares & turning them round to make a diamond shape – to place in the center. Using one of the ‘Elegant Florals‘ papers on the back part of the part matted onto purple card. For the left hand side of the card I’be used the remaining part of the purple card & used a strip embossed folder to add a little pattern and texture. Adding a little of our ‘Lilac Twinkle‘ Glitter & white pearls in the corners

Pre-Coloured Chrysanthemum’s
If colouring is not your thing or you just want to make quick cards – theses are perfect.

Creating A Journal; Stamping Monthly Pages

Hi Everyone
I’m back with another idea with how to use our range of clear stamps – normally we would focus on cardmaking but we’ve been trying something a little different. I just to keep a dairy as a young girl & then as a teen had a small filofax & a few years ago tried to set up a bullet journal (only I didn’t get very far). I don’t know about you but even thought it’s not something you share with anyone – I always get stuck what to write or do in it, so I overthink it & end up not doing anything at all. So after a little research into bullet journals – you can do whatever you like – make it creative & fun.

I’ve decided 2021 is going to be the year I’ll create a fab journal/bullet journal.
My dad bought me this lovely journal for Christmas last year & I’ve wrote in it once – so by creating beautiful pages I’m hoping this will motivate me to journal!

Getting Started; Monthly front pages

I’ve decided to pick a month which will co-ordinate well with my sunflowers

Step 1: I’m not great with calligraphy style writing – I chose a nice font & printed a sheet off so I could trace the wording. Deciding on how I wanted to use the Sunflower stamp – I penciled in guide lines – inked up the stamp & masked off the section I didn’t want stamped.

Step 2: Using promakers I’ve shaded in the Sunflowers

Step 3: To make the colours pop I’ve gone back in with coloured pencils to add shading. Once I was happy with the flowers – I inked in the lines under the stamped sunflowers. Then moved onto the wording ‘September’ I was going to heat emboss the wording but then decided on doing the wording in ombre style – choose three tones of the same colour & colour the wording from dark to light. Finishing the wording off by going round each letter with a fine liner.

Finished page

I’ve finished off the page by heat embossing dots around the page to fill in some of the white space – with a gold metallic embossing powder. I think it gives it move a luxe look.

I like things to co-ordinate – to finish off the back of the monthly page, I’ve backed it with papers from our Sunny Sunflower Digital Paper Pack. Making a little pocket to store items I may need for that month – I’ve even stamped some tags which I could use to place on Birthday gifts or use to write on & stick in the journal. To liven up the writing paper with came in the journal I’ve stamped the sunflowers into the corners of the pages for that month.
