Mr and Mrs

Hi All,

Here we have another new card today, again with my own Stamps by Chloe range, this card was very popular at the show on Sunday so I thought I would do a blog post explaining how I did it.

Here is the card:

Materials used:
  • Stamps by Chloe Heart Wreath
  • Stamps by Chloe Small Heart Wreath
  • Stamps by Chloe Small Flower
  • Stamps by Chloe Mr and Mrs

  • Wow Metallic Silver Sparkle Embossing Powder
  • Wow Sparkling Snow Embossing Powder
Now the tutorial, I have done this one in gold for a change!:

1. Stamp the Heart Wreath in a Perfect Medium/ Versamark ink pad.

2. Apply embossing powder, tap off the excess and heat.

3. Once heated stamp and emboss the Mr and Mrs stamp in the centre of the heart.

4. Apply lots of little dots of PVA glue around the heart (I use a glue with a fine tip applicator).

5. Sprinkle over your Glass Glitter.

6. Tap off the excess

7. Continue around the rest of the heart.

8. Once complete with the glass glitter fill in the gaps by applying more dots of PVA but this time use crystal glitter.

9. Your completed heart.

10. Stamp and emboss 3 bows onto cream card in the same wow powder, then cut out as show above.

11. Glitter as shown above.

Finally assemble to your finished card at the top.

Apologies for my lack of blogging of late but I have been so busy designing new products, stamps and making new sample cards!

So here we have a sample which I made for the show, and a card which we also did a couple of weeks back in my Friday night class, using the Stamps by Chloe Dandelion.

Cream and Black

Hi All,

Apologies for the lack of blogging of late!! But I have been busy working on lots of new designs and products, some of which you will be seeing very soon.

Todays card is a one made using my own stamp range "Stamps by Chloe" available from , this is one of my favourite cards as I just love the simplicity of cream and black!

The main feature of this card are the flowers which have been stamped glittered and layered to create a 3D effect and then seed beads added to the centre for extra depth.

Also used on this card is the border stamp round the edges, again I LOVE this stamp because of its versatility for creating background, finishing off cards, and of course is perfect for holding bling as can been seen here!! The Half Butterfly has also been stamped and decoupaged.

Only 2 weeks until Rainton Meadows and the new stamp launch now, I am very excited as there are also alot of new products on their way very soon too, so keep an eye on the What New page over at

Let me know what you think,
Bye for now

A Quick and Easy Card

Hi All,

Today I have decided to show you one of my new samples which I will have with me at Rainton Meadows. I really like this card and it was very quick and easy to make. I started with a DL white card blank and then cut a piece of white card slightly small to fit on the front.

I have stamped and embossed the Stamps by Chloe Swirly Vine stamp in Wow Rich Gold Superfine embossing powder, once heated I added some chunky crystal glitter and small bling stones.

Finally the Tulip has been stamped and embossed in WP Gold Superfine several times and decoupaged up to give a 3D effect. The paper which I used is from GCD Studios Rose Coloured Glasses paper book and the stem was coloured using Spectrum Noir markers. Sentiment is Craftwork Cards.

Thanks for looking.

1st Card of 2012

Hi All,

Here we have my first card of 2012!! After a couple of weeks break for Christmas :) This is one of my sample cards which I will be taking to the Ross Papercraft Show at Rainton Meadows.

This card was made using the Stamps by Chloe Large Butterfly Stamp, stamped and embossed in Sparking Snow Wow Powder onto a piece of paper from the Craftwork Card Secret Garden Paper Pack, then glittered, with bling added to the centre.

Then I have used the Memory Box Butterfly Chain die cut out of white card and edged with glitter then every other butterfly layered up to add a bit of dimension, and of course bling in the centre!

This card is just waiting of a sentiment to finish it off!

Thanks for looking.
