How To Create: Stamped Gerbera Boarder

Hi Everyone
We have been playing with the new Gerbera clear stamps – this time we are going to show you how to create this lovely stamped/heat embossed floral boarder. Below we will give you a step by step guide and also the materials you’ll need to get started.

Materials Needed:

* Twinkle Lane Designs – Daisy Posy Clear Stamp Set
* Watercolour Card
*Clear Embossing Ink Pad
* Wow Ebony Embossing Powder
* Heat Gun
* Watercolour Paints / Pencils
* Paper cutter / Scissors / Craft Knife
* Scrap Paper

Step By Step guide:

Step 1: on a scrap piece of paper stamp the daisy posy – cut around the flower heads & then cut the stems out, so they are two separate pieces. This will make two masks you’ll need when stamping.

Step 2: wipe clean your stamp. Ink up the flower head with your embossing ink pad & mask off the stems – mine naturally stayed onto the stamp. Stamp onto the watercolour paper – sprinkle your embossing powder over & heat.

Step 3: take your flower head mask & mask the image you’ve just stamped & repeat the process twice more. Tip you may need a little low tack tape to keep your mask in place.

Step 4: Once you’ve finished stamping – you flower boarder should look like this. (You may notice I’ve added in a few stamped leaves on either side – this is a optional). Now it’s time to start watercolouring the flowers – you can do any colour combo you like.

Step 5: We’ve given you two options – you could take a paper cutter & cut into a rectangle – leaving a nice boarder around the edge.

Step 6: or if want to take the background out – use scissor to cut around the outside edges & with a craft knife cut the small pieces out between the flowers.

Now your ready to create a card with this finished piece

How To Create A Mini Gerbera Daisy Card

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.
