Hi Everyone We’ve added a new set of clear stamped to our Etsy Shop! The beautiful Fuchsia Flowers. Today we are celebrating the new release with an how to guide – showing you how to create this beautiful heat embossed fuchsia background.
What You need;
* Twinkle Lane Designs – Fuchsia Flower Clear Stamps *Coloured Card – Pink & Purple *White Card *Silver Mirror Card *Blank Card (8×8″) *Decorative Dies – (we’ve used Sue Wilson) *Winsor & Newton Drawing Inks; Strawberry, Purple & Emerald *Embossing Ink Pad *White Pearl Super Fine – Wow Embossing Powder *Sequins *Glitter *Adhesive Pearls *Foam Pads
How To Create A Fuchsia Background;
Step 1: Take the white piece of card, I’ve cut it to fit an 8×8″ card. Then inked the fuchsia flower stamp with an embossing ink pad. Sprinkle Wow ‘White Pearl Super Fine Embossing Powder’ & heat with a heat gun. Continue to randomly stamp the fuchsia around the card.
Step 2: With your drawing inks it’s time to start painting your embossed flowers (the heat embossed lines will repel the ink). I’ve started with Strawberry coloured ink mixed a little bit of purple in & watered the ink down a little to create a lighter colour. Don’t worry if the flowers are different shades.
Step 3: Now with the purple ink – I’ve mixed a little strawberry in & again watered it down a little. Start painting in the top petals.
Step 4: With the emerald green – finish off by inking in the leaves. Once it’s all dry – go back in with the inks – without watering them down & add in darker tones to create shading.
This week we launched our Brand New ‘Daisy Posy’ Clear Stamps & today we are going to show you how to create this cute mini Birthday Card. Below we will list the materials & show you a step by step guide – lets go…
What you’ll need;
* Twinkle Lane Designs – Daisy Posy Clear Stamp Set * White Card * Blue Card * Embossing Folder * Small Pearls * Ribbon * Black Ink Pad * Alcohol Markers / Colouring Pencils * Glitter * Foam Pads *Edge Die * Double Sided Tape
STEP BY STEP Guide
Step 1: With a plain white piece of card – stamp your daisy posy twice – you will need to use an ink pad which doesn’t bleed when using alcohol markers. We’ve gone for blue hues but you could a colour of your choice. Once I’ve shaded with promarkers, I then put shading in with coloured pencils.
Step 2: Once your happy with the shading – cut around the daisy flowers – cutting off the stalks. Then take another piece of A4 white card – fold in half to make an A5 card – measure the centre point & cut in half – this will give you an A6 card. Fold will be to the left & opening to the right.
Step 3: Blue card measurement; 5.7 x 14.8cms White card measurement; 5.1 x 14.8cms These measurements include the fancy edge cut with the die.
Step 4: With foam pads – stick these to the back of both cut out daisies & the blue piece of card. Remember not to place foam pads where your daisies go behind the blue card. Instead place a little double sided tape there – to make sure the edges stick down.
Step 5: With your die cut edge white piece of card – grab an embossing folder & emboss your card.
Step 6: With some ribbon (we’ve used gingham) stick this in the middle of the embossed piece of white card & then stick the card down with double sided tape to the blue card.
Step 7: Time for some finishing touches. Cut some extra ribbon & tie this into your strip of ribbon in a knot – to create a faux bow. Using the Happy Birthday stamp in the pack – stamp this on a scrap piece of paper & cut it into a small rectangle. Glue small pearls onto the edges of the cut shape. Then add some glitter to the centre of the flower – for a little sparkle.

Just released in our Etsy Shop – ‘Daisy Posy’ – Gerbera Daisy Flowers. It’s the second release from the new Clear Stamp collection & one of our shop favourites when it comes to our Digi Stamps. Over the next few posts I do on the blog – I’ll be showing you some different techniques – to use these lovely daisies in some different ways.
Today we are showing our first sample using the brand new cosmos clear stamps we’ve just released. For this card we created an heat embossed frame – below is a list of materials you’ll need to create this card. Plus we will give a simple guide on how to create the frame.
What you’ll need; * Twinkle Lane Designs – Cosmos Flower Clear Stamp Set * 8×8 Card Blank * White Card * Silver Mirror Card * Patterned Paper (we’ve used spotty polka dot paper) *Sequins and Small Pearls * Lilac Mirror Card * Heat Gun *Embossing Ink Pad * Wow Embossing Powder (we’ve used Shrinking Violet, Metallic Silver & Ebony ) * Square Nesting Die & Lacy Die (we’ve used a Sue Wilson Die) *Foam Pads
Step 1: Cut a square 8×8″ from white card & then cut a smaller square 6×6″ from scrap paper & tape this into the centre of the card, with a low tack tap. Start inking up the large cosmos flower head with your clear embossing ink & stamp this flower into all four corners – making sure the flower is stamped within’ the outer edge of the white card. Sprinkle embossing powder & heat emboss. You will now to make two large cosmos flower masks – to do this simply stamp the flower twice on scrap paper & cut around the outline. Mask two of the cosmos & then ink up the smaller cosmos flower & stamp in between the two larger flowers on all four sides. Then heat emboss.
Step 2: Your frame should look like this once you’ve finished embossing & taken the scrap square paper from the centre. Now you need to cut all around the outside edge of your stamped cosmos flowers.
Step 3: Once you’ve cut around the outside edge – select a square die which fits into the centre of the frame & cut the middle out – to create your embossed cosmos flower frame.
Final Steps: Cut you background paper slightly larger than the square cut in the frame – stick this to the centre of the card blank. Place foam pads on the back the frame & stick this to the card. Then glue sequins around the outside of the frame. To fill the centre of the card we’ve used a Sue Wilson die with a similar shape to our stamped frame. We’ve then embossed cosmos petals around the outer edge of the sentiment. Finishing off with small pearls around the die cut shape.
Since I started designing digi stamps, I’ve wanted to get some of the my designs made into physical photopolymer clear stamps & this month I’ve finally had that dream come true! If you’ve been following us on our social media, you will have seen some sneak peeks over the last few weeks. These stamps sets are made from high quality photopolymer – designed and produced in the UK.
