New Gorjuss Girl Stamps by Santoro London

We received in a shipment of the NEW Gorjuss Girl Stamps yesterday, numbers 41 – 60. They are awesome! I didn’t have much time to colour and create with them yesterday but I managed one card.

I used Stamp No 51, Little Love for this card.










1) First I stamped it onto Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Card stock, and coloured it using Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers.

2) I stamped the image again on Stamping Mask Paper, Cut it out and stick it over the coloured image.

3) Using Distress Ink in Hickory Smoke with my mini blending tool I inked up the background. I also used Distress Oxide Ink in Worn lipstick to add a hint of pink on the background.

4) Once the Background was finished I peeled off the masking paper and cut out the stitched rectangle using the Wonky Die Set by Avery Elle, add adhesive to the background by running it through your Xyron sticker maker.

5) Cut a border out of black card using the Inside Stitched Scallop Rectangle Die Set by Craftin’ Desert Divas, burnish the edges using Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Gunmetal Gray.

6) Stick the border to a piece of silver glitter card using foam squares, and then remove the Xyron backing paper and stick the card front to the silver cardstock, then using your Crafter’s Companion Tape Runner to stick the whole thing to a card blank.

7) Final steps are to add a bow and some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Morning Dew around the Card.

I love these stamps, they are so amazing to colour, enjoy!

Here comes Santa Paws!

The new Santa Paws Set by Art Impressions is so adorable!!😊

I made this card today as I had an idea in mind and had to roll with it! I will add the markers numbers and supply list at the bottom for you 😊

I started by 1) colouring the dog with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers and the cut out.

2) Use both rectangles in the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches Die Set and cut out each in Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth White card, set the largest aside.

3) Taking the smallest rectangle, use stormy sky Distress ink on your foam applicator tool and add colour from the outside edges in, leaving some white in the center, build the colour to your liking.

4) In the white space you left in the center, apply some Scattered Straw Distress ink.

5) Sponge in some Nuvo Mousse in Mother of pearl on the lower third to half (your choice) of the card to add some fine “snowy” shimmer.

6) Apply some VersaMark from just below the start of the Nuvo mousse all the way to the bottom of the card.

7) Sprinkle Frosting Powder onto the VersaMark and Set well with a heat gun.

8) Mount onto light blue Glitter cardstock, and then onto the larger Die cut rectangle.

9) Stamp the sentiment, add some snowflakes with a white gel pen and use the Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen to add shimmer to the candy can and fur on the pups jacket and hat. 😊

Beautiful Bloom Card Tutorial

If you love colouring this Beautiful Bloom stamp set by Crafter’s Companion is the perfect one for you!

For this card I 1) first coloured the flower using Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers in HB3, HB2 and HB1, and the leaves with DG4 and DG2 . After that the flower was cut out I added sparkle to the tips of the petals using the Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay pen.

2) Cut out a piece of black cardstock to 5″x5″ and used the using the Freestyle Stripes Background Stamp from The Ton, stamp onto the black card using VersaMark Ink, and silver embossing powder and the heat set with your heat gun.

3) Cut a piece of black Organza ribbon and attach to the center of the card, using foam squares then adhere the flower over top of the center of the ribbon then add black gems as you choose.

4) Cut a piece of black cardstock to 5.5″x5.5″ and affix the striped card to the black background using a double sided tape (my preference is always Crafter’s Companion double sided tape pen).

5) For the main card base cut a piece of black cardstock to 12″x6″, score at 3″ and 6″, fold at the 6″ score line,









6) then fold back the next score line.









7) Attach the Front card panel to the folded back flap .25″ in from all of the edges.

8) Cut a square of white paper 5″x5″, stamp a border on at and affix in the center of the inside panel of the card. 🙂
