One Step at a Time (by Sandra)


Hello, I am sharing some more of my cards from the September show on The Craft Store.

The stamps I am using are from Chrysanthemum Blueprints.

For my first card I used a piece of card which I put a rough coat of gesso over. Once this was dry I blended some Distress Ink over the top. I stamped this lovely main image of the staircase and chrysanthemum and coloured the staircase and leaves with Distress Markers. I stamped the image again onto some card, coloured the flowers and fussy cut them out and layered over the top. I distressed and blended some ink around the edges of the card.

For my next card I used my cutting machine to make a circle card. I then used my 6” round Gelli plate to make a background with Distress Inks and stamping the Fibonacci circle onto the plate and taking the print. Once it was dry, I stamped  over the background in black.  I finished by adding the sentiment and blending around the edges.

Thanks for looking

  1. What a great idea to make a round card covered in blueprints in that wonderful mix of colours, and the first with the Chrysanthemum Blueprint stamp looks beautiful with the distressed edges and the coat of gesso giving the colours a faded look. Brilliant makes Sandra. x

  2. Great inspirations! Just love the vintage feel of the chrysanthemum blueprint on that background, and the circle card with the Fibonacci stamp, such clever idea!


Thanks so much for leaving a comment - it brings a little ray of sunshine into our day when we know our work is appreciated!
