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

Colourful Cosmos Card

Hello Everyone
Today we are sharing with you our second sample using the Comos Flower Clear Polymer Stamps. When we first started shading the flowers they started off a more pale, pastel colours but once we layered the promarkers and coloured pencils they ended up much bright and bolder.
Below we will give a list of materials we used & how to guide to create this eye catching Birthday card.

What you’ll need;
* Twinkle Lane Designs – Cosmos Flower Clear Stamp Set
*Alcohol Markers and Coloured Pencils
* 7×7 Card Black
* White Card
* Black Card
* Adhesive Gems
* Green Card
* Glitter (Gold & Silver)
* Black Ink Pad
* Square Nesting Die & Lacy Die (we’ve used a Sue Wilson Die)
* Foam Pads & Double Sided Tape
* Scrap Paper

Step 1: With the square nesting dies – cut the black card 7×7″ & then take the next size nesting square down & cut this one in white card. You will then need to stamp the smaller cosmos twice onto the scrap piece of paper to create a mask. Cut around the edge – you will need this once you start stamping around the edge of the white square card.

Step 2: Start stamping with the smaller cosmos in one of the corner. Mask this one & then continue stamping around the whole edge of the white card. When you get to the final cosmos – you will need to mask off the two cosmos flower on either side.

Step 3: Shade in all the cosmos flower in a colour palette of your choice – we’ve choosen five bright shades. Using promarkers and coloured pencils to shade each one. Once they are all shaded – use a glue pen around the outside edge & sprinkle silver glitter over the glue & tap off excess.

Step 4: On your spare bit of white card stamp our some individual cosmos flowers – shade those & cut round the outside edge. You can add a little gold glitter to the centers on each flower.

Step 5: I’ve used a Sue Wilson die & cut it in a spare piece of black card. Then with the same die set cut out a center piece & stamped a Happy Birthday sentiment in the middle. Laying these piece up with foam pads & stuck into the center of the stamp cosmos background.

Step 6: Once all your layers have been glued to the card blank – finish the card off with the individual cosmos flowers you stamped earlier & then some adhesive gems in the corners.


Design Team; Christmas In July Cardmaking Inspiration

Today I have two cards to share with you. Our Design Team Members have been creating some festive cards – using the new ‘Playful Penguins’ Digi Stamp and ‘Christmas Trees’ Digital Papers now available in Twinkle Lane Design Etsy Shop. Giving you a little inspiration when you create your own cardmaking projects.

The first card we are sharing is from Helen – who has chosen a white & red colour palette for her creation. Matting ‘Christmas Trees’ Digital Paper on-to a square card & wrapping a textured twine around the center. ‘Playful Penguins’ has been die cute using a pierced circle, matted onto red die cut circle & both have been layered onto white scalloped die cut card stock. Finished off with card candi & a sentiment.

Mowbray Designs has chosen a blue and silver colour palette for her Playful Penguins card. Matting one of the new papers and the digi stamp on silver mirror card stock along with one of the sentiments from the digi sheet. She has also included some silver die cute Christmas Trees. Finished off with blue pearl drops.

Both beautiful cards showcasing our two lovely new designs

Christmas In July: Creating A Framed Playful Penguins Card

Today we have another two new releases and we are going to showing you how to create this fun card using frames, stamping and heat embossing. We also have another quick colouring video with hints and tips of how to shade this lovely new digi.

We’ve used a blue and white colour palette for this card. Snow is the one thing I think we all wish for at Christmas time – only it’s a very rare occasion we have a white Christmas here in England – so alot of my card creation features snowflakes/snowfall, to me it’s a symbol of the festive season. The backing paper we’ve used is from our ‘Christmas Penguins‘ Paper Pack

My favourite thing about this digi stamp is the fun the season which is captures – kids love to get out on their sledges when there’s fresh snow fall & you can just see the joy on the little penguins face – very cute!


Let’s get creating…

Step By Step; Creating your framed card

Step 1; Take a black 8×8″ card we’ve then used a ‘Stamps By Chloes’ snowflake board stamp, VersaMark embossing ink pad & Wow Embossing Powder ‘Glacier’. Stamp round each edge of the card (have a spare piece of paper to shake the embossing powder onto) Then use your heat glue to seal the stamped image.
Step 2; Print and shade your digi stamp in – see youtube for colouring tips.
Step 3; Cut your matt and layers with square nesting dies – also cut a frame.
Step 4; To create snowfall in the background of the digi, place small glue dots around the image & shake glitter over the top – this will need to left to dry. Make sure your glue is dries clear.
Step 5; Stick pattern paper, & your matt and layer digi to the card – i’ve put the digi on at an angle. & place foam pads around the inside edge of your frame & stick
Step 6; finish your card off with a sentiment, die cut snowflakes and adhesive gems
