Card Making with Crafty Individuals Stamps

Hi everyone,

I hope the week is going well for you.

  I was delighted to be asked to join the Crafty Individuals team.  So excited!   As some of you know from following my craft blog their rubber art stamps have been a firm favorite of mine for many, many years.

So, today I would like to share just a few cards I have made recently.

FloLangleyCI Projects 030awm
Crafty Individuals Stamp Used: Tea at Three CI 389.
The main stamped piece has been stamped in Black Archival Ink and colored with water color pencils.

FloLangleyCI Projects 013AWM
Crafty Individuals Stamp used: Lady’s Day CI 414 and for the sentiment I used Childhood Friendship Memories CI 277.
The main image has been stamped using Black Archival Ink and colored with water color pencils and ink.

FloLangleyCI Projects 035AWM2

Crafty Individuals Stamps used: Wonder of Childhood CI 292 and Medieval Manuscript CI 406.
For the main piece I stamped the little girl onto a piece of card stock, masked her and “swished” the whole piece of card into and some diluted ink.  I then stamped the script so that appeared behind the little girl, removed the mask and colored the little girl in using water color crayons.

Thank you so much to everyone for the wonderful warm welcome to the Crafty Individuals team both on the CI blog and on their FB page.

Sew into card making

Hi everyone

I hope you are enjoying the weekend.

Today I would like to share some cards made using the new sewing themed stamps from Chocolate Baroque.

FloLangleyDressMakersWindow1 003awmThe first card is a little box card that flattens down to go into an envelope.  The inside of the card is made up in the same way as a normal card but I have just added a couple of extra score lines to make it into a box shape.

FloLangleyMay2015projects 012awmA quick and simple card.  Pretty straight forward.  Firstly stamp the ribbon and the sentiment onto a piece of card.  stamp the flowers onto separate pieces of card, shade a little and cut them out.  Make up the card as seen.

FloLangleyMay2015projects 020awmcThis card is simple in design but did take a little time cutting out.  Having said that, the dress form was easy to cut out with a craft knife. This card was made by stamping the lace edge and the sentiment directly onto my base card.  The dress form pieces and the cotton reels where stamped onto separate card stock, cut out and attached to the base card using foam tabs.

Chocolate Baroque stamps used for these projects:  Floral Mannequins, The Sewing Room and Dress Makers Window.

Card Making – The Sewing Room

Hi everyone

I hope you have something great planned for the Bank Holiday Weekend.  Have lots of fun and enjoy yourselves.

Today I would like to share a card made using the new rubber stamps from Chocolate Baroque.  I have to say these are fantastic stamp sets which have gone straight into my top 10 CB favorites of all time.

FloLangleyMay2015projects 039awmbThis was a really easy to card to make.
Stamp all of the images, color them and cut them out.
Stamp the bold dress makers dummy directly onto the backing paper.  You will only see the stand part when the card is made up.
Make the card up as seen adding foam tabs behind the stamped embellishments to give it a 3D effect.

Awesome Orchids Card

Hi everyone

I hope you have something nice planned for the weekend.

Today I would like to share with you a card made using the new Awesome Orchid stamps from Chocolate Baroque.

FloLangleyOrchidsAprilCB 036awm

I wanted an oldy worldy look to this card with the background having a weathered stone effect and the main focal piece having a distressed tile look.  I am not sure I pulled it off but I am happy with the finished card.

Chocolate Baroque stamps used:  Awesome Orchids, Dusky Damask (main background) and Echoes of Italy (crazed pattern on the tile).

Inspiration for this card came from this photo taken at the Alcazaba in Malaga.
