Palm Fan Silhouette and Tangled Ornaments (posted by Claire)

Good morning, Claire here with a couple of projects made using the beautiful Baroque Ornament stamps, you can find them here.

My first projectd is a very quick card made using Palm Fan Silhouette Baroque Ornament and distress inks. I took a cream card blank and simply stamped the image with different colours of distess inks. I used Ripe Persimmon, Scattered Straw and Wild Honey.

I just added a sentiment stamped in black ink.

My second make to day is a notebook cover made with paper clay. I'm not an expert with paper clay but it was fun to experiment making this project.

I rolled the paper clay out so that it was just a little bit larger than my notebook and dusted the clay with Bundled Sage distress ink. Next I inked up the Tangled Baroque Ornament stamp with Broken China distress ink and stamped into the clay, it gives a lovely 3d effect. I repeated this process with Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet. I used the cover to cut out the shape of the notebook and glued it on to the cover. I left it to dry and then sanded the edges before applying gilding wax to highlight the raised areas of the design.

Thanks for visiting today

  1. Hello Claire. Your projects are so pretty.
    I particularly like the card as it shows how a quick and easy card can be so attractive. I am of course bias, as I think the stamp is lovely too, it's on my wish list.
    Best wishes

  2. Both of these are very pretty Claire and I love the texture you have got with the paper clay. x

  3. These are both so lovely, I'm impressed with the stamping on the card - I can't usually get my distress inks to 'stamp' that nicely :)

  4. Brilliant makes Claire, gorgeous colours and designs, Kate x
