Quick and Easy Tall Trees Scene card created for Chocolate Baroque

AW Tall Trees CAS

 

Good morning. Today I am sharing a quick and easy card using stamps from the Tall Trees and Words of Wisdom stamp sets. The background was created by spritzing and splattering with lime green and bright pink ink sprays. I then quickly stamped the trees with lime and dark green ink. The sentiments were stamped in dark green ink. I used green alcohol marker to frame the image before gluing to the card and added faux stitching with a fine tipped pen. I finished with the obligatory PVA pearls and clear glitter glue for sparkle (I just cannot help myself – tee hee).

Materials:

  • Tall Trees and Words of Wisdom stamp sets
  • A5 blank card
  • Heavy cartridge paper
  • Spray inks (lime with mica and bright pink)
  • Dye based inkpad (dark green)
  • Alcohol marker and fine tipped pen (dark green)
  • PVA pearls and clear glitter glue

How to make it:

  1. Lightly spritz and splatter the background with lime green and bright pink ink sprays.
  2. Quickly stamp some of the trees by picking up lime ink from your craft mat. Repeat stamp some without re-inking. Lightly spritz the stamp with water and stamp again to give some lovely splodged images and a watercolour effect. Repeat with the dark green ink.
  3. Stamp the sentiments with dark green ink.
  4. Use the alcohol marker to frame the image before gluing to the card and added faux stitching with a fine tipped pen.
  5. Finish with PVA pearls and clear glitter glue for sparkle.

This was one of my TV show sample created for Chocolate Baroque on The Craft Channel using the Gothic Fragments stamp set. Sorry that it has taken so long to blog the details – never enough hours in a day – tee hee.

AW Let it Be

Materials:

How to make it:

  1. Colour the yellow card randomly with diluted Brusho colours and spritz with gold mica spray.
  2. Stamp randomly with the texture stamp using darker Brusho colours. Cut out with a tag die.
  3. Stamp the arch with Versamark and heat emboss with gold powder. Stamp the sentiment with black ink and edge the tag with alcohol marker.
  4. Trim a strip of card away from the right hand side of the card front. Stamp the inside edge of the card with Versamark and heat emboss with gold powder. This then creates a border visible on the card outer.
  5. Stamp and heat emboss the card front with the texture stamp.
  6. Attach the tag and embellishment using 3D glue gel. Finish with the sparkly faux gems.
  7. I used a ready-made bead and wire embellishment from my stash, but it would be easy to make from left over 4mm beads and some copper jewellery wire (use 0.6 to 0.8mm thickness for stability – depending on your bead hole size).
