Cream and Gold Embossed Card - Featuring the New Timeless Collection Stamps (part 2)

Good  Evening Everyone

Thank you all for your lovely comments and messages on my previous post, its good to know you are enjoying replicating some of my posts,and that you gain inspiration from these. It makes it all worthwhile.

Today's card is one I particularly enjoyed making as it didn't  take too long and only used a few products, but I must say I was very pleased with the result.

All the products used to make this are listed below and are available on Phill's Website:-


Cream Card Stock
Timeless Collection Large Oval Frame Stamp Set
Timeless Collection Small Oval Frame Stamp Set
Timeless Collection Everyday Sentiment Banners A5
Bright Gold Embossing Powder
Bakers Twine
Sue Wilson Embossing Folder - Climbing Vines
Creative Expressions Art Deco Victorian & Decorative Metal  Corner Embellishments
Padlock & Key Metal Charms
Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Glue
Perfect Medium

This is how I created the Card Front

Using Cream Card Stock I cut the layers as follows

1st layer 7.75 square
2nd layer 7.5 square
3rd layer 7.25 square
4th layer 6.25 square
5th layer 6" square

Next taking the 2nd and 4th layers I used Perfect Medium and Bright Gold Embossing Powder on the edges.

Then I used the Climbing Vines Embossing Folder on layers 3 & 5

I then attached all the layers together using Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Glue.


Using the  Timeless Large Oval and Small Oval Stamps I stamped these onto cream card and heat embossed them using Bright Gold Embossing Powder.

I then chose the largest Banner the  'With Very Best Wishes' Sentiment and again heat embossed in gold.

After cutting these out I attached the Ovals to the card using pads to give dimension.

Then I shaped the 'Banner' and attached with Cosmic Shimmer glue.

Finishing Touches

 I made a quadruple bow using Bakers Twine and attached the Padlock and Key and finally I added the Art Deco Metal Corners using Cosmic Shimmer Glue.

This is now ready to attach to an 8 x 8 card blank.

Retirement Card in Cream & Craft Card - Featuring the New Timeless Collection Stamps

Good Morning Everyone,

Today's card is created using the New Timeless Stamps, I particularly used these stamps again to show how adaptable these are for male and female cards, plus the fact these are one of my favourite collections.

Products Used:- All of which are available on Phills website:-


Craft Card and Cream Card Stock
Timeless Everyday Corner Sentiment Stamps A5
Timeless Large Rectangle Frame Stamp A5
Timeless Everyday Sentiment Tags A5
Timeless Occasions Sentiment Stamps A5
Decadent Oak Pearl P.V.A. Glue
Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Glue
Bakers Twine
Bright Gold Embossing Powder
Woodware Corner Punch
Sue Wilson Embossing Folder -  Tartan Trellis
Micro Beads
Double Sided Adhesive Sheets
Couture Creations Die - Keys To My Heart

This Is How I Created It

1st Layer -  Cream Card Cut to 7.75 Square
2nd Layer - Craft Card Cut to 7.5 Square
3rd Layer - Cream Card Cut to 7.25 Square

I embossed the 3rd layer using the Tartan Trellis Embossing Folder then attached all 3 layers together (flat) using Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Glue.

Next I cut the panel as follows:-

Craft Card cut to 7.25 x 5.75 and cut the corners using the Woodware Corner Punch, and tied the Bakers Twine around the edges.

The next layer in Cream Card cut to 7 x 5.25

I then used Gold Embossing Powder and the Corner Sentiment Stamp and heat embossed this before embossing with the Tartan Trellis Embossing Folder.

I then attached the 2 panels to card using pads to give dimension.


Using Cream Card and the Large Timeless Rectangle Frame Stamp and the Everyday Sentiment Tag Stamp I heat embossed these in Bright Gold Embossing Powder and then cut them out.

I shaped the 'Tag' and attached with Cosmic Shimmer Glue and the Rectangle I attached on pads.

Finishing Touches

I cut the keys out in Cream Card, then using a double sided adhesive sheet, I added the Micro Beads, then attached to the top of the tag.

Finally I added a quadruple bow made from Bakers Twine  and Decadent Oak Pearl P.V.A. to the corners.

This is now ready to attach to an 8 x 8 Card Stock.
