See Into The Future – CAS Card

Hi there! We are back with gorgeous inspiration from Veerle here on the blog today. Veerle has created a simply beautiful card featuring some stamps you would perhaps not think of putting together…

I can’t explain it but something inside of me needed to put that tree on the hand. And then it stopped in my mind. It’s the strangest feeling of needing to see those two together but it just feels right, relaxed…

And yet it didn’t feel finished so I held it in my head and I’ve let it grow… until today. I found words to match and that tiny leave to express some extra things in my head.  And as happy as I am with the finished page, I feel the need to make another page with only that hand and the tree…

So I will, but first I want to share with you how I created this page and I can do so by sharing the video tutorial I made. Enjoy!

Into The Woods – Forest Stamps

Hi there! Have you seen our awesome NEW ‘Into The Woods’ stamp set? A set of fantastic forest stamps, with a bare tree, owls, and some awesome words too! Pauline Butcher has given these stamps a really magical feel…

Hi there,

It’s a long Bank Holiday weekend, and the weather is good, so I hope you have something exciting planned.

Today I am sharing my first creation, made using an awesome new set of stamps, from ‘Visible Image‘, I adore it…

The new forest stamps set is called ‘Into the Woods‘ and is available to pre-order, with release date being 11th May.. but I assure you, it will be worth the wait!

I also used the inky script stamp, from ‘Scripted Streets‘, which is in the background.

The background, was a piece of card that I had cleaned my brayer on, I’d been using some Oxide inks, it has some rather dark blue patches on, so I added white gesso, to tone it down a bit, and then some yellow and pink acrylic chalk paints with a palette knife…. perfect. I stamped the script, using Salty Ocean Oxide Ink, made a moon with some white gesso and a brush.

I stamped the rear row of trees, in a grey Versafine ink, stamped the next row in Purple Versafine, then used artistic licence for the hedge, with a couple of green inks, the main tree and the beautiful Owls I stamped and heat embossed with Black embossing powder. I then got my Stickles out, brown for the far trees, purple for the mid trees, and green and yellow for the hedge, I also added some gold Stickles onto the wings of the Owls, I finished off with the stamped sentiment, onto a bit of white card, and coloured it to look like the background, and then using a white pigment pen, highlighted the tree.

Check out the other awesome new stamp set plus all the yummy stencils too!

I have an Inky Workshop in Warwick, on Sunday 20th May, 10am – 4pm, £25 per person, 3 projects, and one will be using this fantastic stamp set. For more details, contact me on Facebook, or by email to: [email protected]
