Wedding card created for Chocolate Baroque

Good evening. I created this wedding card using scene building stamps from Chocolate Baroque stamped onto a patterned background paper from Crafty Individuals.

AW Wedding


How it was done:

  1. The images were stamped with Versafine and coloured with pencils. The scene was extended with the fine tipped pen (to ground the images).
  2. StazOn ink was used to stamp onto the mini tag as the surface was shiny.
  3. The edges were inked with ochre dye ink on a sponge plus a little glycerine to help blend.
  4. Finished with a little glitter glue and sequins for sparkle.

Quick and Easy Mackintosh Love card created for Chocolate Baroque

Good morning. Today I am sharing a quick and easy card made with the Mackintosh themed stamps recently featured on Hochanda. This one can be made in under 15 minutes.

*I used StazOn to stamp the sentiment on my coated card as I wasn’t sure if Versafine would dry on the slightly shiny surface. If you are using an ‘inkable’ type of card/paper the Versafine will be fine for this.


How to make it:

  1. Stamp the heart and flowers onto stamping card and heat emboss with clear powder. Cut out elements and colour with inks and sparkle pen.
  2. Stick the ribbon to card front with double sided tape. Stamp the sentiment. Glue down the stamped embellishments with 3D glue or foam pads for added dimension.

Just about the little things, Mackintosh card created for Chocolate Baroque

AW The Little Things




Good morning. Today I am sharing another of my show samples with the lovely Mackintosh stamps recently shown on Hochanda.

I used a stamping platform to help with placement of the stamps around the card border. This made it quick and easy but it is not essential. A craft mat and acrylic block with a grid will be helpful to get precise placement but it can be done ‘by eye’. Practice on a piece of cheap copy paper.


How to make it:

  1. Mount the corner and border stamps onto a gridded acrylic block. Test their placement on a scrap piece of 8 X 8 copy paper. Stamp onto one corner and edge, turn the card 90 degrees and stamp again. Repeat to build the border. Heat emboss with clear powder. Colour with inks and sparkle pen. The embossing resists the ink so makes colouring fairly quick and easy.
  2. Stamp the lady onto stamping card. Heat emboss with clear powder. Cut out and colour with inks and sparkle pen. Don’t worry about cutting out the fiddly ‘land locked’ area under the bouquet. When mounted onto the uncoloured background panel it will blend in and not be noticeable.
  3. Stamp the panel and sentiment, cut out and mount onto black card, glue to the card front.
  4. Glue the lady to the card front with 3D glue gel or foam pads.
