Materials

For each card:-

2 A4 sheets JS Stardream Card – I used Citrine.
1 A4 sheet JS Gold Mirri Card.
Ink Duster Brush.
Optional – small piece of make-up sponge.
Sticky Stuff – I used Double Sided Tape, Foam Pads, and Pinflair Glue Gel.
Marianne Creatables Large Ovals Die Set - LR0236
.
Optional – Nestabilities Curved Rectangles S5 – 006.
A fine paint brush.
JS Vintage Tulip and Forget-me-not Stamp sheet.

Sepia Card - Tim Holtz Distress Ink Stamp Pad – Tea Dye.
Green Card – Tim Holtz Distress Ink Stamp Pads – Peeled Paint and Fired Brick.

 

Step One - Sepia Card

Using Stardream card cut a piece of card 14.9cms x 29.7cms.

Landscape orientation score in half vertically.

Using the Tea Dye ink pad and the duster brush, tint the front of the card around the edges.

Using the tulip stamp and Tea Dye ink pad create a background, overlapping onto the back of the card.
 

 

Step Two

Using the Marianne Large Ovals die set, cut out the large solid oval in JS gold mirri card, and the lattice oval using JS Stardream card to match your base card.

For the topper, cut a piece of Stardream card 11.5cms x 7.5cms. Alternatively cut a rectangle using the Nestabilities Curved Rectangles.

Using the Tea Dye Distress Ink Pad, stamp the tulip image onto the topper. Tint the petals and leaves of the tulip by “dry brushing” using a fine paintbrush. To dry brush, wet the brush and dry on a piece of kitchen paper until almost dry. Treat each petal/leaf individually and don’t paint over the line of each petal. Pick up a small amount of ink from the base of the petal and paint using light flicking strokes painting away from the base of the petal. Avoid spreading the ink from the lines on the petal/leaves and blurring the lines. Paint the stem with horizontal short strokes to maintain the curve of the stem.

Optional - tint the edge of the topper using a piece of make-up sponge, or the Tim Holtz ink blending tool and foam.

If you are new to stamping it helps if you have one of the Hot Stuff Mats as it makes it easier to apply the ink. Dab the foam lightly onto the ink pad and dab off any excess ink on a spare piece of card. Working in a circular motion and starting on the Hot Stuff Mat, work towards the edges of the topper/card and tint to the required depth, tinting more at the corners. Practice on a piece of spare card first.

Using foam pads mount the topper on the mirri card and lattice oval and attach to the front of the card.

 

Step Three - Green Card

Using Stardream card cut a piece of card 14.9cms x 29.7cms.

Landscape orientation score in half vertically.

Using the Peeled Paint stamp pad and the duster brush, tint the front of the card around the edges.

Using the corner “hearts and tassels” small stamp and the Peeled Paint stamp pad, stamp the four corners of the front of the card. This stamp is designed to be used with the straight edge hearts and tassel stamp. To use it as a corner, cover the 4th tassel with a small piece of clear sticky tape, making sure it does not overlap one of the hearts. Ink up the stamp, remove the sticky tape and stamp the corner.
 

 

Step Four

Follow the instructions as in step two, but use Fired Brick for the flower and Peeled Paint Distress ink pad for the foliage. If you apply the ink pad to the stamp carefully you can colour both flower and foliage at the same time and then stamp onto the topper. Cover any “colour bleed” using a fine paintbrush before stamping onto the topper.

 

Step Five
