Vellum Leaf Wreath - DT Member Verity



Hello! So good to be here. It's Verity here from Pretty Little Button with another card for you today. I had a vision of how this card was going to turn out when I started, and I can say, this card is exactly like how I had planned it. When I saw the A6 leaves stamp set from Colourific, I thought they would be perfect for creating a wreath. Whatsmore, pair it with vellum and embossing powder and a beautiful vellum leaf wreath card was created!


Vellum Floral Wreath card details:

Start off by repeatedly stamping the outline leaves from the A6 Leaves clear stamp set in versamark onto vellum. Cover this with white embossing powder and heat set. 


Once you have stamped and embossed enough leaves fussy cut these out. Start arranging the leaves onto a kraft card panel - you may find it useful to draw a faint pencilled circle for guidance. Using strong adhesive, secure the leaves down, overlapping and weaving the leaves for interest.


Add a layered die cut sentiment to the middle of the wreath. I also added a black die cut sentiment at the back, offset to one side to create a shadow. This will help the sentiment stand out from the wreath.


To soften the edges, lightly ink blend white pigment ink and foam mount the card panel onto a square kraft card base. To finish off, add a selection of sequins, scattering them around the wreath. 



I hope you love today's card and don't forget to check out the stamp set, link below. If you loved this card please leave a comment below as we would love to hear from you. 




Until next time!

Spread Your Wings and Fly ~ Design Team Member Karen

Hello everyone!  It's Karen with you today, sharing two cards using the lovely Spread Your Wings and Fly set, along with the Alphabet & Numbers:
 Now, you're going to have to forgive my photography... no matter how I edited my photo, the butterfly came out with a distinct red tone!  It's much more of a wine colour like the photo below.  I coloured the butterflies with Copic markers - so many possibilities and different ways they could be coloured!  I fussy cut around them, and then scored down either side of the body, so that the wings bend upwards.  For both cards, I used my sewing machine to zigzag the black patterned paper onto the base.  The teal circle on the "Fly" card is adhered with pop dots for a little dimension.
 The Alphabets & Numbers set is such a great font!  Really easy to fussy cut/paper piece like I've done here.
I was going to use the sentiments that come with the Spread Your Wings and Fly set on the front of the card... but they were busy enough already, so I mounted them on some teal paper, stamped a few butterflies in black ink, and added them to the inside of the cards.
A lot of butterfly papers are light & pastel-ish, so I love the dark, rich colours of these papers for a change.
You can find all of the Colourific stamps on the website here, or just click on the links above.
Happy stamping!

Dhalia in Gold by Atiya

Hi everyone,
It is Atiya and I will be taking over the Colourific blog today. I am come up with another clean and simple card. This time I have used A6 Moderne Flowers stamp set by Colourific.



Here I went with embossing the stamped images using Letter It Embossing Powder in Marigold. I then added a few beads in the middle of each flower to give them a little life. Lastly, I went on adding a few sequins.



This is it for now and I hope you like the card. To share your creations using Colourific Stamps, you can join the Colourific Stampers Fan Group here.

Until next time!

Christmas cuties - DT Anila

Hi Everyone!

This is Anila over the blog today.  
I am super excited to be sharing this card with one of the new Christmas releases. 
Check them out over at Colourific website.


For my card, I have used the Robins and the Snowmen stamp set.
I stamped the images on a watercolour paper, coloured with Zig markers and fussy cut them all. 
On a white card panel, I distressed the clouds and added a die-cut for the ground. Stamped a sentiment from my stash. Mounted this panel on a side-fold card base.
Adhered all the images to create a scene. Mounted some of the images using foam to give them a pop. Lastly, stamped the musical notes around the birds.


Thank you!

Congratulations Toast - Design Team Member: Verity



Hello! So good to be here. It's Verity here from Pretty Little Button with another card for you today. This card was one of the first cards I made when I received the lovely stamps from Colourific. However, I am only just getting around to showing you it today. This card is very easy to make and the stamps from Colourific do all the talking on this card!


Congratulations Toast card details:

To start, heat emboss in platinum embossing powder two champagne glasses onto white card. These were coloured in with watercolour paints, but I did not use watercolour paper. The amount of water used was very small so I was able to get away with just using the regular white card. Watercolour paper isn't a true white, which I wanted for the card, so this I why I did not use watercolour paper. If you prefer to, you can do this just as well with watercolour paper. 

Handmade congratulations toast card made by Verity Biddlecombe

I only used a couple of colours for this card, using a blue-grey for the glass and a light yellow for the liquid. I didn't do any fancy shading and wanted to keep it simple. These were fussy-cut out once dry.


For the background, I added clear water to a white card panel and dropped in a selection of blues allowing them to blend on their own. I did not add the colours close to the edge of the water on the card in order to get a soft fadeout.

The panel was adhered to a white card base and the glasses foam mounted on top. There is a little 'bubbles/fizz' stamp in the stamp set which I heat embossed directly onto the card panel above the glasses, along with a sentiment beneath. 


The card was finished with a few platinum Nuvo drops as embellishments. 


I hope you love today's card and don't forget to check out the stamp set, link below. If you loved this card please leave a comment below as we would love to hear from you. 




Until next time!

Marleen DT - Rainbow Princess cards

Hello Beautiful People

Todays post is for
Colourific as its once again my turn to share some inspiration..

For todays cards I have gone all rainbows but with a girly feel to them.
I have used the
A5 Princess Carriage set for both cards

Both cards are pretty much made the same way. Distress ink rainbow effect, sprayed with a homemade perfect pearl mist. . My sentiments has been stamped strait on to my backgrounds as is the start on the carriage card and the horse itself.
On the carriage card, I stamped onto black cardstock and heatset with gold embossing powder and the fuzzy cut the carriage. Its onthe background with foam pads.
Finished both cards with a few clear nuvo drops and that is about it.

with wee gaps but I just used a fine liner to fil in any gaps.
And that is it for today. Thank you for popping by and for any comments left behind.
Dont forget to come visit me on FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Youtube or my FB page.
 Happy Crafting
