Blue and White Crocus Card (by Anne)

Good morning. Today I am sharing one of my samples with the new stamps recently featured on the shows with Lesley Wharton on Hochanda. I have got a 'thing' about blue & white scenes recently! Tee hee.

  • Spring Bird Crocus stamp set
  • 6 inch square card blank and white stamping card
  • Distress Inkpad (Chipped Sapphire)
  • Fine tipped pen (blue) and gel pen (white)
  • Dies to cut square frames and mats
How to make it:
  1. Cut the frame and square mats for layering. Edge with Distress ink and add faux stitching with the fine tipped pen.
  2. Stamp the image and sentiment with Distress Ink. Pull out the colour using a damp brush. Add some ink to a craft mat and use as a paint to add extra colour and shading. Use the white gel pen to add back some highlights if needed.
  3. Mat and layer onto the card front using 3D foam on the topper for extra depth.


  1. Wow like this very much, very Delft like!

  2. This blue and white is so fresh and pretty Anne and thd crocus stamp is really lovely, and I adore the design of the card. x
