Pan Pastel Eggs (by Judith)

Hello everyone, I have been working with the incredibly useful Natural Eggs stamp set to make a clean and simple masculine card to show you today. Cards for men are so difficult to make, and these eggs lend themselves to a Nature themed card suitable for any time of year.

I took the solid stamp, inked it with Versamark, and stamped it across the bottom of a piece of beige linen card four times, overlapping the edges. I coloured the eggs with Pan Pastels, using a lighter colour at the top of each egg, graduating to a darker colour at the bottom. I then used the speckled stamp over the top of each egg, using a brown ink.

I added a sentiment from the Thinking of You Sentiments stamp set, and matted the background onto dark brown card before placing it onto a kraft card blank.

A quick bonus project for you, is a tag made using stamps from the Dawn Chorus stamp set. Details of how I made this tag can be found on My Blog.

Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx


  1. The kraft card base with the darker matting & the subtly coloured eggs makes a lovely CAS card & I particularly like your arrangement of the eggs with them extending over the edges. Your use of the same design technique on the tag illustrates just how effective this is in adding interest to & 'grounding' images. Your stamping of the eggs with swirls detail to match the birds is impressive & I love the sense of the feathery nest you created with the background. The aqua swirls blend in beautifully making the background such a cohesive part of the design.

  4. I do like your card Judith, the colours are fab, and makes a super male card.
    Pretty tag too, lovely image, Kate x

  5. In PanPastel they look great too!! And the tag is so elegant!

  6. The eggs look so 3D that you feel you could pick them up off the background which complements them so perfectly. The tag background has those pretty outline leaves and the swirls at the bottom echo the swirl shapes on the birds beautifully. x
