Decadent Oak - Featuring the New Timeless Birthday Verse Stamps

Good Morning Everyone,

Thank you all for your lovely comments and messages on my previous post.

Today's card is a quick and easy one made using the New Timeless Birthday Verse Stamps and a few other products.




Products Used:- All of which are available on Phills website:-
www.honeypotcrafts.co.uk

White Card Stock
Timeless Birthday Verse A5 Stamps
Decadent Oak Mister Spray
Decadent Oak Gilding Wax
Decadent Oak Pearl P.V.A. Glue
Ancient Copper Embossing Powder
Sue Wilson Dies - New York Collection - Madison Square


Card Front

Using plain white card stock I began by cutting the layers as follows:-

1st - 7.75 square
2nd - 7.5 square
3rd - 7.25 square
4th - 6.5 square
5th - 5.5 square

Using the second layer I sprayed this with the Oak Mister Spray, then while it was drying I coloured the edges of the 3rd and 5th  layers using Oak Gilding Wax.

Next using layer 4 and the extra stamps included in the Birthday Verse Stamps, I heat embossed around the edges using the Ancient Copper Embossing Powder.
I then attached them all  flat to the 1st layer.




Sentiment


Using the Madison Square Die and the largest of the set I cut this out using plain white card.
Again I used Ancient Copper Embossing Powder to emboss the Birthday Verse and also used the extra stamps in the pack to decorate the corners.

I then attached this using pads to give dimension.

Finally I added Oak Pearl P.V.A. Glue around the edge.

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

Decadent Denim Featuring the New Timleless Collection Stamps

Good Afternoon Everyone,

It has been a while since the blog has been updated, as you are all aware Phill has been very busy not only designing new products for us all but also preparing for the opening of his NEW SHOP in Sheffield, which is opening on 17th April.

Phill has also had quite a few shows on Hochanda recently which means that I have been busy designing sample cards for his demonstrations.

Well on with today's card which features the first card Phill demonstrated on his show for the Launch of the New Timeless Collection Stamps.


Products used:- which are all available on Phills website:-
www.honeypotcrafts.co.uk


White Card Stock
Timeless Corner Sentiment Stamps A5
Timeless Small Square Frame Stamp A6
Decadent Denim Gilding Wax
Decadent Denim Pearl P.V.A. Glue
Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Glue
Perfect Medium
Bright Gold Embossing Powder
Creative Expressions Dazzler
Sue Wilson Embossing Folder - Tartan Trellis
Sue Wilson Dies - New York Collection Herald Square
Sue Wilson Dies -  Delicate Fronds
Sue Wilson Dies - Orange Blossom Open Petals


Card Front 

Using plain white card stock I cut the layers as follows

1st layer 8 x 7
2nd layer 7.75 x 6.75
3rd layer 7.5 x 6.5
4th layer 7.5 x 2.5
5th layer 7.25 x 2.25

Taking the 2nd layer I used  Decadent Denim Gilding Wax around the edges then attached to the 1st layer using Cosmic Shimmer Glue.

Next with the 3rd layer I stamped the corners of the card using gold embossing powder and a sentiment from the Corner Stamps. I then embossed this using the Tartan Trellis embossing folder, and attached to the card.

For the panel I edged around the largest piece with Gilding Wax, then embossed the smallest one and attached both to the card.


Sentiment

Using the Herald Square Die I cut this out in plain white card.

I chose the 'With Best Wishes' stamp and heat embossed using the gold embossing powder.
I then attached this to the panel using pads to give dimension.

Finishing Touches

I cut out the fronds and petals from scraps of white card
(nothing gets wasted) then shaped and attached to the sentiment.
Finally I used Decadent Denim Pearl P.V.A. on the fronds  and added a dazzler to the centre of each flower.

                                                 Happy Crafting
