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

Stamping Fuchsia Flowers; Embossed Background

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.

Finished Card

To make the finished card – I’ve matt and layered pink & purple card onto a 8×8″ card – using square nesting dies to cut the layers. Using a Sue Wilson die set I’ve cut a decorative center piece – I wanted to keep the card simple, so to keep the focus on the background. Finishing the card off with a stamped sentiment, sequins, glitter & adhesive gems.
