Quick and Easy Still Reeds card created for Chocolate Baroque

AW Still Reeds CAS


Good morning. Today I am sharing another quick and easy card. I used the reeds border from the Owl Edges stamp set and sentiment from Words of Inspiration. I used ink sprays to colour the background and sparkling heat embossing powder for the reeds.


  • Owl Edges and Words of Inspiration stamp sets
  • A6 yellow card blank (approx. 10 X 15cm)
  • Heavy cartridge paper (approx 9.5 X 14.5cm)
  • Ink sprays (red and yellow with gold mica)
  • Versamark Inkpad
  • Dye based archival inkpad (dark brown)
  • WOW embossing powder (Halloween)
  • Alcohol marker (dark brown)

How to make it:

  1. Spritz the background and dry fully. Tip: I tend to prepare large sheets of background papers in advance and then cut them down as I need. Great to use if you need something done in a hurry, or for batch making sets.
  2. Stamp the reeds with Versamark and heat emboss with the glitter powder. Tip: to prevent the powder sticking where you don’t want it (especially if your card is still a little damp), dust the surface with a little talc.
  3. Stamp the sentiment with dark brown ink.
  4. Edge with alcohol marker to frame and glue to the card blank.
