Butterfly Tag Card

This is the card that I barely got to start, let alone finish! Using images from Potpourri 1 & 2. I used the tag stamp from our tags and words set and created a mask of both the inner and outer parts.
Firstly I used the outer mask and stamped the butterflies inside with Stazon. I then coloured the butterflies with Pastel Chalk Pencils.
Next I masked the inner section and stamped the flowers on the outer section of the tag with Stazon. Again I then coloured them with chalk pencils.
On the finished card there is Diamond Glaze on the large butterflies.

This is the first card that I made on our TV show. I also taught this one in our Project Club last Wednesday (Original card made by the talented Lesley Crawford).

  • Colour with Distress inks (we used honey, sage & glass)
  • Stamp Porcelain background in gold ink all over.
  • When dry highlight with white pen.
Text background:
  • Stamp French Script twice in coffee archival, heat set.
  • Tear edges.
  • Colour with Antique Linen Distress ink, edge with Vintage Photo
EcoArtboard piece:
  • Stamp Marbled background with Black Archival ink, heat set.
  • Colour with Distress inks but only honey & sage.
  • Edge with a dark brown ink.

Da Vinci

Lesley made this card using the new Da Vinci Rubber Stamp Sheet, as well as a couple of the others.

Did I tell you the story behind these new unmounted rubber stamps sheet?
Well, JudiKins have lots of fabulous images and big background stamps but unfortunately their big background stamps are often too big and too expensive for some people. We thought it would be a good idea to shrink these down and add some co-ordinating designs to create a stand alone sheet of designs. But even though these are all designed as stand alone sheets they also work very well together.
So all these designs are JudiKins images but we are manufacturing them here in our warehouse in the UK and we will very soon be manufacturing our own designs as well.

Tuesday, 4 January 2011


Wow, Lesley has done it again. This card is amazing.
Lesley has used several of the JK unmounted sheets - the ruin and the girl are from Daydream, the script and butterfly from one of the Potpourri sets and the background is from the Vintage set. Plus there is more you can't see on the other pages.

More to follow . . . .
