Fairyland card created for the Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge 35

Good morning. Today I am sharing one of my samples for the recent shows on Hochanda. I had so much fun with these stamps. I hope that you like my fantasy scene. This one also perfectly fits the Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge this month too.

 

AW Fairyland Colour Challenge 35

Materials:

  • Spring Fairy Collection , Fantasy Castles, and Magical Landscapes
  • 8 inch square card blank, white stamping card and purple iridescent paper
  • Scrap copy paper to create masks
  • Large decorative circle mat cut from purple card and circle die to cut out image
  • Versafine Inkpad (Onyx Black), StazOn (Jet Black)
  • Water based inks (purples)
  • Watercolour pencils (black, purples and greens)
  • Clear sparkle pen
  • Fine tipped marker pen (black) and alcohol marker (purple)
  • Stickles glitter glue (Star Dust)

How to make it:

  1. Stamp the fairies with Versafine, cut out and colour with pencils and a damp brush.
  2. Stamp the wings with StazOn onto the iridescent paper, cut out and decoupage over the stamped fairies.
  3. Stamp the castles and buildings onto copy paper and cut out. Arrange the elements to plan the scene, i.e. it needs to fit into the circle topper which will fit onto the large decorative mat. Stamp the foreground image with Versafine and cover it with your paper mask before stamping the next image behind. Continue covering the foreground images and working towards the background elements. When complete remove the masks and use a fine tipped marker to join up or draw extra elements where needed.
  4. Colour with watercolour pencils and a damp brush. Overlay some areas with clear sparkle pen. I added extra intense colour with water based inks into the background to make the buildings ‘pop’.
  5. Edge the card blank with alcohol marker to frame. Layer and glue down all elements. I used 3D foam and glue gel for added depth.
  6. Finish with touches of glitter glue for added sparkle.

Floral Parchment card created for Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge 35

Good morning. Today I am sharing another of my samples for the recent shows on Hochanda. I had so much fun with these stamps and this time I chose to create a Spring themed floral card.

I have just started experimenting with the world of parchment. I hope that you like my effort. My picot snipping needs a little more practice – tee hee.

This one also perfectly fits the Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge this month too.

AW Spring Floral Parchment

AW Spring Floral Parchment SP

 

Materials:

  • Spring Fairy Collection (March)
  • 9 X 21cm white card blank, pearlescent purple card, parchment
  • Parchment embossing template to create the frame and scalloped border (Groovi system from Claritystamp)
  • Parchment scoring and embossing tools
  • Parchment 2 needle pricking tool and snips
  • StazOn (Opaque White)
  • Alcohol markers (greens and purple)
  • Organza ribbon (purple)
  • Stickles glitter glue (Star Dust)
  • Perga Glue

How to make it:

  1. Stamp the flower on parchment with white StazOn. Turn the image over and working on the back emboss over the stamped outlines using a fine embossing tool and mat. Add highlights using larger embossing ball tools.
  2. Again working on the back, add colour using alcohol ink pens.
  3. Using an embossing template add a scalloped frame around the image. I used the Groovi system which is really easy to use. The Groovi plates come with etched designs which are just the right depth to easily emboss using fine tipped embossing tools. I used a scalloped square design plate, extending the design to create the rectangle.
  4. Now working from the front use the twin needle piercing tool to pierce around the outside of the embossed scallop frame.

Quick and Easy Spring Bird card created for Chocolate Baroque

Good morning. This is a quick and easy make using the Gelli Printing Plate to create the background. I used stamps from the Spring Fairy Collection recently featured on Hochanda TV.

AW Spring Bird CAS

I used a technique demonstrated on one of Lesley’s shows recently. I inked up a 4 inch round gelli printing plated with Distress Ink and then lifted off some of the ink using the Big Bold Background Leafy Trails stamp, then transferred the image to stamping card. I overstamped with the Bird and Spring sentiment with Versafine and edged with marker pen to frame. To give added dimension I mounted the image onto the card with foam pads. This technique is so quick and easy – great for batch making.

 

Materials:

  • Big Bold Background Leafy Background and Spring Fairies Collection (March and April sets) stamps
  • 6 X 6 inch scalloped white card blank, white stamping card
  • Inkpads: Versafine (Vintage Sepia), Distress Ink (Peacock Feathers)
  • Alcohol marker (brown)
  • Gelli Printing Plate (4 inch circle)

Quick and Easy Gold Bird card created for Chocolate Baroque

Good morning. This is another quick and easy make using the Spring Fairies stamp collection recently featured on Hochanda. Great for batch making.

Welcome to Fairyland card created for Chocolate Baroque

Good morning. Today I am sharing one of my samples for the recent shows on Hochanda. I had so much fun with these stamps. I hope that you like my fantasy scene.

AW Welcome to Fairyland

Materials:

How to make it:

  1. Stamp the scene with Versafine and extend the scene by drawing with the fine tipped pen.
  2. Cover the moon, rocks, castle and fairy wing with masking fluid.
  3. Colour the scene using inks, remove a little colour from the clouds with a wet brush and blotting with paper towel. Note: you can only do this with certain inks (some set into the paper and cannot be lifted after dry, so you may need to work quickly to lift colour while still wet). Dry and remove the masking.
  4. Colour the images with watercolour pencils and blend the colours with a damp brush.
  5. Apply sparkle pen over the moon, fairy wings and sections of the sky.
  6. Edge the card with black alcohol pen and mount onto black card. Glue to card front adding decorative die cuts to corners.
  7. Add Glossy Accents to the fairy and finish with glitter glue for added sparkle.
