Morning Friends and Crafters, Loti will be on our screens tomorrow with a new launch from Mama Makes with Leonie. It’s always very exciting. The stamps are beautiful and so versatile. It’s great having stamps with nice open spaces, they are wonderful to colour and so relaxing. Today I am sharing a card I have made using the Mama Makes range, it’s a little sneak peek ahead of the show tomorrow.
You will need:
Circle Centers -‘Snowflake Frames’
Fancy Phrases Stamp Collection
Winter Bella Stamp Collection
Versamark Ink Pad
Memento Black Ink
Distress Oxide Blueprint Sketch
Memento Summer Sky Ink
Archival Cornflower Blue
Copics or alcohol Markers
Blue Silk Card
Basic Square and Circle Dies (Here Tonic)
Anti Static Bag
Step 1: Wipe your card with the Anti Static Bag. Stamp your frame with Versamark Ink and emboss with Clear Powder. Choose a square die to cut out the frame and a circle to cut out the middle.
Step 2: Cut a 5” square and stamp snowflakes around the edges. Next cut out a square of blue which will become the mat for this piece.
Step 3: From this square also cut a square to layer the topper onto and a circle frame with 2 circle dies. This saves an awful lot of card (See Photo).
Step 4: Use the embossed card to help you position your ‘Bella’ stamp, use Memento ink for this.
Step 5: Take a 7 1/2” square of stamping card, stamp the lights across the top and the sentiment at the bottom. Use the toppers to help you position the stamps.
Step 6: Using Summer Sky, stamp snowflakes over your card.
Step 7: Then repeat step 6 with the cornflower blue to add depth to the piece.
Step 8: Use a black fine liner to elongate the sentiment to either edge of the card.
Step 9: Colour your pieces with a selection of Copics or other alcohol markers.
Step 10: Blend Blueprint Sketch lightly around each of the cards. Layer the background onto blue, then secure to the card base.
Step 11: Mount both your topper pieces onto the blue card. Next, use foam pads to secure one to the other.
Step 12: To finish your card, use foam pads to secure the topper to your card.
Thank you so much for joining me today. I do hope you will tune in tomorrow, there will be great demos and lots of inspiration. For now take care and Happy Crafting.
