Awesomely Artistic

Hi everyone, sharing the card instructions for the "Awesomely Artistic Classes in the Mail" set I made last December.  


I have had numerous requests to sell the instructions separately but decided to post the instructions and cards here for everyone to enjoy.  The cards are all made using a standard size A2 cardbase.

Card 1


Stamp the floral image using the Basic Black Archival ink onto the Whisper White cardstock circle piece.  Colour the flowers using the Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow Classic Stampin’ Pads.  Adhere this to the Blackberry Bliss cardstock circle.

Adhere the Designer Series Paper to the Silver Glimmer Paper strip and adhere this to the embossed Whisper White cardstock piece.  Adhere this to the Blackberry Bliss mat and then adhere this to the Whisper White card base.

Adhere the circle onto the card front, over the Designer Series Paper strip, add the word “Celebrate” and 3 rhinestones.  Stamp the dragonfly image on a piece of Whisper White cardstock with Blackberry Bliss ink and hand cut out.  Put a small piece of dimensionals in the centre of the dragonfly and adhere to the card front.

For the inside stamp the dragonfly image with Blackberry Bliss onto the Whisper White cardstock and then adhere this to the Blackberry Bliss mat and the adhere this to the inside of the card.

Card 2


Create a mask using a piece of Window Sheet and cut out 4 squares evenly using the smallest sqare in the Squares Collection Framelits set.  Take the mask and position over the piece of Whisper White cardstock the same size.  Sponge Blackberry Bliss ink lightly in the squares and then harder on some edges and corners in each square (do not make the ink too dark as you will be stamping over this).   With the mask still in place stamp the dragonfly in 3 of the squares using Blackberry Bliss ink.  Remove the mask and stamp the dragonfly in the top left corner.

Using the 2-way glue pen or wet glue apply the glue to the wings of the dragonflies and add the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

Adhere the embossed Whisper White 1 ¼” strip onto the Blackberry Bliss 1 ½” strip.  Adhere this across the bottom of the card front. 

Stamp the frame using Blackberry Bliss ink onto the small piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Then stamp the word “Friend” in the centre of the frame.  Hand cut out.  Add 3 dimensionals on the back of this frame.   Wind the Silver Metallic Thread 5 times around your fingers to create a circle of thread, attach this the back of the dimensionals on the back of the frame and adhere to the embossed strip.  Add 3 sequins randomly on this panel to finish.  Add dimensionals to the back of the card front and adhere to the Blackberry Bliss card base.

For the inside of the card, stamp the dragonfly with Blackberry Bliss ink in the right bottom corner on the Whisper White piece.  Adhere this to the inside of the card.

Card 3


Stamp the flower image with Basic Black Archival Ink onto the Whisper White cardstock piece.  Colour the flowers using the Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow Classic Stampin’ Pads.  With the Stampin’ Pads closed press the lid in the centre to transfer ink to the inside lid, open the Stampin’ Pad and using the Aquapainter (filled with water) pick up some ink from the lid and colour the image.  Allow to dry after finishing the watercolouring.

Take the random dots image and second generation stamp using Mossy Meadow around the floral image.  Second generation stamping is where you ink up the stamp, stamp onto a scrap piece of paper and then stamp onto your project.

Adhere the piece of Designer Series Paper on the right hand side of the stamped piece.  Adhere this to the Blackberry Bliss mat and then onto the Whisper White card base.  Add the word “Thanks” to the bottom of the card front and place three rhinestones randomly on the card to finish.

Adhere a thin strip of Designer Series Paper to the Whisper White inside piece, adhere the Blackberry Bliss mat and adhere to the inside of the card.

Card 4


Stamp the floral image using the Basic Black Archival ink onto the Whisper White cardstock piece.  Colour the flowers using the Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow Classic Stampin’ Pads. 

Stamp the random dots image using Blackberry Bliss ink.  Adhere this piece to the Mossy Meadow mat and then adhere this piece to the Blackberry Bliss card base.  Adhere the Whisper White 1 ¼” strip onto the Blackberry Bliss 1 ½” strip.  Adhere this across the bottom of the card front.  Adhere the word “Thanks” to this piece.  Add 3 sequins randomly on the card to finish.

The inside Whisper White piece as stamped on the bottom right corner with the floral image and Basic Black Archival ink.

Card 5


Stamp the floral image using the Basic Black Archival ink onto the Whisper White cardstock piece.  Colour the flowers using the Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow Classic Stampin’ Pads.  Take the random dots image and second generation stamp using Mossy Meadow around the floral image.

Thank you for visiting.
