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

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.

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.

Embossed Cosmos Frame Card

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.
