Her Heart Did Whisper by Lynne Moncrieff


Did you know that more Oxford Impressions stamp sets are now available to purchase from That’s Crafty? One of the new sets is Waiting For Mr Darcy, which is a stunning set of stamps … then again, you probably know by now that I have a weakness for Oxford Impressions!



Distress Ink:- Bundled Sage
Gel Medium 
Watercolour Paper 
A4 Cardstock or 7”x5” pre-scored cardbase
Artist Palette Knife (or old credit card)
Tissue Paper (white)
Silicone Glue
Extras:- Lace, seam binding, scraps of floral pattern paper, paper flowers), lace flower, baby wipes



Tear watercolour paper to approx 7”x5”. Adhere torn pieces of pattern paper, lace and muslin to panel with Gel Medium. Leave to dry. 

Apply paints with palette knife, removing some of the paint from the pattern paper with a baby wipe. 

Ink up flowers (Court of Versailles) with Distress Ink and randomly stamp onto panel.  Heat set.

Stamp onto tissue paper, with StazOn, all required images. Tear around images then plan composition before adhering with Mod Podge. Leave to dry.

Ink up scrap cardstock with Distress Ink. Stamp butterfly (Jane’s Garden). Fussy cut. 

Assemble card:- Adhere panel to cardbase then start to embellish card. The painted paper flowers I had leftover from a previous project so I simply added pearl stickers. Painting paper flowers is a good way to co-ordinate with your project and a good way of using up flowers in colours which you don’t actually like! 

Sponge Distress Ink onto edges of cardbase.


Until next time,
