Floral Rocker card created for Chocolate Baroque

Good morning. This rocker card was one of my samples using the Tangled Garden stamps from Chocolate Baroque. The stamps went perfectly with one of my embossing folders from Sheena Douglass. Something bright and cheery on a gloomy day x.


AW Floral Rocker


  • Tangled Garden and Words of Inspiration stamp sets
  • Hammered card and stamping card (white)
  • Inkpads: Marvey Matchables Dye based (Violet), Versamark
  • WOW Embossing Powder (Fuchsia)
  • Brusho Powder (Purple)
  • Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens (peacock, orange, pink and Clear Overlay)
  • Gel (orange) and glitter pens (blue)
  • Spectrum Noir alcohol pen (purple)
  • Fine tipped pen (purple)
  • Glitter glue (aqua) and PVA pearls (orange)
  • Glycerine
  • Glass seed beads (silver lined green)
  • Circle Rocker die (Tattered Lace), sentiment panel die (Sizzix)

How it was made:

  1. The circle rocker card blank was cut using the die and embossed with the floral embossing folder. The sentiment was stamped with purple ink and cut out. Peacock Sparkle Pen colour was blended over the surface using a sponge. I used the technique recently demonstrated by Sheen Douglass: Add a drop of glycerine to the craft mat and work into sponge. Then pick up some pen colour, after scribbled onto the mat. The glycerine makes it blend onto the card like a Distress Ink.
  2. The card and sentiment panel were edged with alcohol marker and the fine tipped pen used to draw faux stitching.
  3. The flowers and leaves were stamped with Versamark and embossed with pink powder, cut out and coloured with sparkle, glitter and gel pens. While wet a little Brusho powder was dropped onto the petals for extra colour and texture.
  4. The flowers and leaves were shaped and glued to the card with 3D glue gel.
  5. Glass beads were glued to the flower centres. Finished with PVA pearls and glitter glue.

Bold Blooms Wall Art created for Chocolate Baroque

Good morning. I used the Bold Blooms and Tangled Garden stamp sets to create this 3D wall art piece.

AW Indian Hanging 1


  • Bold Blooms and Tangled Garden stamp sets
  • White Board Shapes – Hearts and Circles sheet, 8 X 8 inch construction acetate (recycled packaging), black card (for decorative die cut frame), mount board (backing and outer frame)
  • StazOn Inkpad (Jet Black) and Versamark
  • Alcohol ink pens (blues and pinks)
  • Gesso (White)
  • Acrylic paint (light blue satin and metallic pearl)
  • Coloured art pens, glitter and metallic pens (Pentart and Sakura, blue & pinks)
  • Double sided sticky sheet
  • Embossing powder (clear with sparse fine blue glitter), Ultra thick embossing powder (UTEE – plain clear and clear with mica sheen)
  • Glitter (extra fine clear and chunky black) and glitter glue (silver)
  • Large decorative frame die (Tonic) and texture stencil

How it was made:

  1. The flowers were stamped onto the acetate sheet using StazOn Ink. Alcohol ink pens were used to add colouring to the back of the images (StazOn would bleed with alcohol markers). Some areas were left uncoloured. White gesso was then painted onto some areas to make them opaque (alcohol inks are transparent).
  2. Double sided sticky sheet was then attached to the back and extra fine clear glitter applied with some chunky black glitter around the edges. A decorative die cut frame was then glued to the front.
  3. The shapes were pushed out of the laser cut sheet and the waste was painted with light blue acrylic paint and trimmed around to make an overlay. Images were stamped with StazOn, aligning them carefully with the images on the base acetate sheet. They were coloured with various art pens. Versamark was then applied and a layer of clear embossing powder with fine glitter applied.
  4. Some of the circles were stamped and coloured with art pens. Versamark was applied and they were double heat embossed with UTEE (one layer with mica sheen, one plain clear).
  5. The embellishments were all glued down with 3D glue gel. Silver glitter glue was added around the border and onto elements of the stamped images.
  6. The mount board frame was decorated using pearl blue paint using a texture stencil. The piece was then mounted onto backing board and the outer frame glued in place.
