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.
* 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
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.

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.
