Today we are showing our first sample using the brand new cosmos clear stamps we’ve just released. For this card we created an heat embossed frame – below is a list of materials you’ll need to create this card. Plus we will give a simple guide on how to create the frame.
What you’ll need; * Twinkle Lane Designs – Cosmos Flower Clear Stamp Set * 8×8 Card Blank * White Card * Silver Mirror Card * Patterned Paper (we’ve used spotty polka dot paper) *Sequins and Small Pearls * Lilac Mirror Card * Heat Gun *Embossing Ink Pad * Wow Embossing Powder (we’ve used Shrinking Violet, Metallic Silver & Ebony ) * Square Nesting Die & Lacy Die (we’ve used a Sue Wilson Die) *Foam Pads
Step 1: Cut a square 8×8″ from white card & then cut a smaller square 6×6″ from scrap paper & tape this into the centre of the card, with a low tack tap. Start inking up the large cosmos flower head with your clear embossing ink & stamp this flower into all four corners – making sure the flower is stamped within’ the outer edge of the white card. Sprinkle embossing powder & heat emboss. You will now to make two large cosmos flower masks – to do this simply stamp the flower twice on scrap paper & cut around the outline. Mask two of the cosmos & then ink up the smaller cosmos flower & stamp in between the two larger flowers on all four sides. Then heat emboss.
Step 2: Your frame should look like this once you’ve finished embossing & taken the scrap square paper from the centre. Now you need to cut all around the outside edge of your stamped cosmos flowers.
Step 3: Once you’ve cut around the outside edge – select a square die which fits into the centre of the frame & cut the middle out – to create your embossed cosmos flower frame.
Final Steps: Cut you background paper slightly larger than the square cut in the frame – stick this to the centre of the card blank. Place foam pads on the back the frame & stick this to the card. Then glue sequins around the outside of the frame. To fill the centre of the card we’ve used a Sue Wilson die with a similar shape to our stamped frame. We’ve then embossed cosmos petals around the outer edge of the sentiment. Finishing off with small pearls around the die cut shape.
We’ve been working on some new card designs over the last weekend using some of our digi stamps – which we wanted to share with you all. Two different occasions – both to brighten up someones day.
Get Well Soon Sunflowers
For our card – we’ve used our ‘Single Sunflower‘ digi stamp, printed it in two different sizes & then cut the stalk off – leaving the flower head. For the backgrounds I’ve layered up gold mirror card, yellow card, one of patterned papers from our ‘Honey Bees‘ paper pack & then with a plain white piece of card – I’ve die cut hexagons to reveal the paper underneath.
After shading in the sunflowers with promarkers and coloured pencils – I’ve finished the card off with a stamped sentiment – hexagon shapes, glitter around the edge of the white card & a stamped bumble bee. A really bright & cheerful card to wish someone well.
Happy Anniversary Heart
I shaded the ‘Floral Heart‘ digi stamp when I first release it earlier this year – but was unsure what card to make with it. I then got a commission from a lady I work with for a anniversary card for her mum and dad – & thought this digi would be perfect for it.
I wanted to design something simple – so the background I made using a embossing folder. Cutting frames in red and gold – to match the colours in the floral heart. Them to add a little interest into the background – I’ve used a lacey square die (I think it’s by x-cut) & stuck it on with a double sided sticky sheet & rubbed a white sparkly glitter in. Finishing touches include adhesive gems, the happy anniversary sentiment & glitter. I also edged the white pieces of card with a gold metallic pen.

Hi Everyone Hope you are all well. I have been busy creating some new designs. One of my favourite flowers in the summer months is the Cosmos flower – every year I make sure to plant some seeds in my garden which feature these pretty flowers. I’ve drawn this cosmos flower head in a bolder style than I usually do – but I love all the detail I’ve managed to capture with this flower. With it being a single flower it is very versatile – as you will see from the card samples below, you can layer it, cut it or just leave it just as a whole.
Card Sample from Mowbray Designs;
Mowbray Designs has created this beautiful, eye catching card. Using a shaped card – she has then die cut a frame & placed an colourful inked background behind this. Using the Cosmos Digi Stamp Tracey has printed it off multiple times – shading the flower in using gossip pens (which give them a real vibrant colour). She has then layered up the cosmos flower heads & off set each layer to give them height and depth. Finishing off with a sentiment and a contrasting bow. So lovely!
Twinkle Lane Designs Card Samples
For our first sample I printed off the Cosmos Flower twice & shaded them in with promarkers in lilac/purples (Lavender, Amethyst, Aubergine) & then to make the colours pop I’ve gone over the shading with coloured pencils & used a white pen to put in some hightlights. Using lilac and silver card for matt and layering, then used a white piece of embossed card for the background. I’ve cut both of the flowers in half & used foam pads and placed them on each side of the card to create a frame. I’ve placed the sentiment in the in the centre & finished the card off with white pearls.
For this card I’ve made a landscape A5 card. Mixing contrasting coloured cards – dark pink, pale pink and silver mirror. I’ve stamped around the edge of the dark pink card with a leaf stamp. The background card I created using winsor and newton inks with water & splashing them on. Again i’ve shaded the flower head in with promarkers and coloured pencils – then added glitter to make it sparkle. To finish off I’ve stamped a sentiment onto a strip of velum & stuck this in the centre.

Our design team have been making some wonderful card samples using this weeks newest digi stamp release. The cute Penguin Snowglobe will make a wonderful center piece to any Christmas Card. Below we give you some inspiration on how you could use this fabulous digi stamp.
Mowbray Designs has a used a snowglobe shaped card to showcase this weeks release. Shading in the digi with blues and greys – while adding a little sparkle to the snow & blue clear drops between the snowflake & clear drops for the snow ladies scarf. Adding the blue snowflake digital paper to the background with a little glitter around the edge. Finishing off with die cut snowflakes and a sentiment.
Using a square card Helen has matted and layered a mix of grey and white card topped off with the blue snowflake paper from the ‘Christmas Penguins’ Paper Pack – she’s then inked around the edge with a dark blue ink pad. Shading the digi in with a mix of blue and grey tones & then adding a layer of glitter over the top of the globe part of the digi. Finished off with gems in the corners.
Julianne has created two wonderful samples. Shading in the digi stamps with copic markers and then for the background she stamped snowflakes and used a clear heat embossing powder over the top. Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire, Tumbled Glass distress oxide inks where used to ink the card. Honeybee Stamps have been used for the die cut sentiments – finished off with some sequins.
