Hand Picked By Jamie ~ August Bundle - My Colours Of Winter By Lynn Lewis

Hello All....

I hope you are all well, and enjoying this beautiful Summer weather we are having... I certainly am.

Despite my craft room being absolutely roasting, I am really happy to be spending more time in there now, but enjoy getting out for some lovely walks too :-))

SHOPPING LIST ~ I have listed the products used, at the bottom of the page for you!

I can't wait to share this week's card with you.... it features Woodware's Festive Panel Stamp from August's Hand Picked By Jamie Bundle.

To start with I used a sheet of A4 white card and the Distress Oxide Inks - Salvaged Patina and Dusty Concord.

Using these inks and a couple of Blending Applicators, you need to make four rows of the two colours alternating down the A4 sheet blending as you go. You don’t need to do the whole sheet (probably about half) just enough to cover the Stamp twice, and a strip.

When that is dry, give it a rub over with your Woodware Magic Anti-Static Pad.

Next, take the Festive Panel Stamp and ink it with your Versamark Pad and stamp across the inked card twice (don’t worry if you can’t get them to meet perfectly, there is a strip to go across it).

Then using your Cosmic Shimmer Detailed True White Embossing Powder, sprinkle over the stamped area and then tip off any excess, and heat emboss with a heat gun.

Now flick some water on it and leave it to dry naturally - if you zoom in on mine you will see the effect.

For the next step, trim around the stamped out piece, with a paper trimmer close to the edges and set aside.

Wipe your Woodware Magic Anti-Static Pad over a sheet of White Vellum and stamp out the greeting included in this Stamp Set with Versamark Ink and Cosmic Shimmer Detailed White Embossing Powder again and heat.

When cool, tear the vellum down each side so you have a thin strip, then cut another strip from the inked card that’s just slightly smaller than the vellum strip.

Make sure when you attach the stamped vellum, that this strip the colours are opposite to what you are going to lay it on - then glue it down on the ends of the vellum only.

Now "matt and layer" the Woodware Festive Panel with Silver Mirror Card and white card.

I used Sue Wilson's Noble Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and a very slim bit, under the last and stick - these all together flat on a 8x8 white card blank. Now stick your sentiment strip across the middle.

To finish the card, I decorated it with Jamie Rodger’s new Pierced Collection - 'Elegant Poinsettia.’

I coloured these with the above Distress Oxide Inks, by distressing the inner part with Dusty Concord and outer part with Salvaged Patina.

Shape and stick together - I added stamens from my stash but you can add seed beads / gems, whatever you wish.

Here I added Cosmic Shimmer Iced Snow Glitter Jewels on them, just for a little sparkle lol.

Now, glue these onto the card and tuck in bits of foliage from Sue Wilson’s Festive Collection -‘Festive Foliage Pieces.’ I cut some out in Silver Mirror Card, and the white ones I coloured with the inks.

You can use Creative Expressions new Water Crystal gems to stick on each end of the sentiment to cover glue marks, plus the two naked corners.

I absolutely love stamping, and if you’re new to it don’t despair!

The more you do the better you get, and if it’s not perfect you can always cover with gems or the odd flower lol.

I would always recommend using a Stamping Platform now, as these are an absolute game changer for accurate and clean stamping results :-)

If you decide to have a go at making this card (or your own version), then we would love you to share them with us in our Facebook Group - Create With Craftmania And Jamie Rodgers.

Happy crafting, enjoy your week and have fun.

Lynn :-)
