Rose card created for Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge 33

AW Rose Colour Challenge 33

Good morning. Here is my first contribution for the Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge No. 33.

 

The images were stamped with Versamark and embossed with gold powder. The edges were distressed (using the edge of scissors) and coloured with watercolour ink (picking up colour from my craft mat and applying with a sponge).

The images were quickly coloured with watercolour pens and a damp brush (the embossing powder resists so colouring is really quick and easy).

Belle Flower Card created for Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge 31

AW Belle Flower Colour Challenge 31

 

I love this gorgeous background stamp (Big Bold Backgrounds – Belle Flower). I stamped it with Versamark onto white card and heat embossed the image with pearl green embossing powder. I then over stamped the border (from Harlequin Rose) and sentiment (from Rose Stem Script) and embossed with glittery pink powder. I drew around a large flower die with pink glitter pen to create the sentiment plate. Then coloured the image with watercolour and glitter pens.

Materials:

  • Big Bold Backgrounds – Belle Flower, Harlequin Rose and Rose Stem Script stamps
  • 6 X 6 inch card blank, white stamping card
  • Versamark Inkpad
  • Embossing powders: Pale green with mica and bright pink with glitter
  • Watercolour pens and water based glitter pens (greens and pinks)
  • Fine tipped glitter pen (pink) and alcohol markers (deep pink and pale grey)
  • Large floral shaped die (or template)

Step By Step:

  1. Stamp the background with Versamark ink and heat emboss with green powder.
  2. Over stamp the sentiment and border with Versamark and heat emboss with the pink powder.
  3. Draw around the floral template with the fine tipped glitter pen. Colour the background image with watercolour and glitter pens using a water brush to blend out colours.
  4. Use the grey alcohol marker to add a little shading under the sentiment plate to make it appear 3D.
  5. Trim the stamped image. Edge the card blank and topper with alcohol marker to frame and glue down.

Our Love Rocks card created for Chocolate Baroque

AW Our Love Rocks

 

Good morning – well it’s time to get romantic and send a bit of love. This monochrome rose card would be perfect for the guys. It would work for Valentine’s day or for an anniversary. I hope that you like it.

 

Materials:

 

How to make it:

  1. Cut a paper strip to create a mask for the sentiment border. Thin copy paper works best for this. You could apply a couple of dots of Zig 2 Way glue to the back to help hold it in place. If you do this wait for the glue to dry before placing. When dry this glue acts as a repositionable adhesive. Lay the mask across the card front and stamp the Rose Script 4 times with Versamark.
  2. Remove the mask and use a fine tipped pen to outline the sentiment strip. Edge the card with the alcohol marker. Stamp the sentiment and small heart.
  3. Stamp the Rose Script again onto stamping card. Colour with black pencil and cut out the rose. Use the shading on the stamp as a guide to colouring light and dark areas. Brush over the petal edges with the clear sparkle pen. Shape the rose slightly and glue to card front with 3D glue gel.
  4. Cut a decorative heart frame. I cut the heart from white stamping card using a die from Tattered Lace. I hand cut out the middle to create a frame and coloured with black alcohol marker. Trim the heart so that it appears to sit behind the sentiment strip when stuck down.
  5. Add Glossy Accents over the small heart and a little black glitter glue to the shaded areas of the rose. Finish with PVA pearls.

Leafy Trails card and gift box created for Chocolate Baroque

AW Leafy Trail Card & Box 1

Good morning. I am excited to share one of my samples for Lesley’s first TV shows on Hochanda at the start of the month. Lesley demonstrated several sets of stamps from Chocolate Baroque featuring a romantic theme with gorgeous roses and heartfelt sentiments. Great for creating projects for loved ones, Valentines Day, Weddings and Anniversaries too.

I have used the Big Bold Backgrounds Leafy Trails stamp to create this card and to decorate a small gift box to match. I embellished using the Rose Stem Script stamp and a sentiment from the Words of Love set.

Materials:

* The gift box is a purse design from Silhouette – I think that it came included with the Silhouette Studio software

How to make:

Stamp the leafy background with Versamark and heat emboss with gold powder. Trim stamping card to fit the card blank leaving a small border. Round the corners with a punch or scissors. Edge with the alcohol marker.

AW Leafy Trail Box 1

Open out the box and lay flat. Mine was cut on the Silhouette Cameo, but you could use a die cut or a ready-made plain box. My box measured approx. 30 X 21 cm when opened out. Stamp and emboss the box sides with the leafy stamp.

Colour the card front and box with sparkle pens. Spray with a coat of sparkle varnish. Glue the background mat to the card front.

Cut a strip of card, stamp the sentiment and small border with teal ink. Trim and edge with alcohol pen. Attach to card front with 3D foam.

AW Leafy Trail Card 1

Stamp the rose panel in Versamark Ink and emboss with gold powder. Colour with watercolour and sparkle pens (both are water based so can be used together). Cut out the rose and lightly shape. Tie on a ribbon and glue to the card with 3D glue gel.
