Feeling Blue by Fliss Goodwin



Hello there, this week I have a vintage style card for you all in shades of blue which again makes use of my much treasured Deep Red Crochet Background Stamp which I know will be in my stash for years to come.


Here’s What You Need: 

Stamps Used:

Blue Card
Colouring Pencils such as Spectrum Noir


Here’s How To:


·       To make the background paper, cut a piece of stamping card to fit your card blank and then stamp on the crochet background with the Aegean Blue ink without using an acrylic block. I did this by inking up parts of the stamp and stamping round the edges, repeating and over-stamping for a shabby, vintage effect.


·       Stamp the crochet background on to manila card using a block and the darker blue ink to produce a rectangular panel. Trim the edges after stamping.


·       Stamp the doily image on blue card with the Versamark ink and heat emboss with the vanilla white embossing powder. Mine was slightly textured and gave a fabric type look. I then die cut the doily with the matching doily die but you could just cut it out.


·       Stamp a flower sprig on stamping card with the brown ink and colour with pencils in shades of blue and then die cut into an oval panel. Ink the edge with the lighter blue ink.


·       Die cut a smaller doily and a butterfly from the blue card and a further butterfly from the stamping card. Stamp a sentiment and die cut then add pearls.


·       Assemble the card as you see, adding lace across the bottom and layer up the butterflies with tiny foam pads.


Don’t forget we have a new challenge for you today over at the Challenge Blog with a fabulous prize of a £20 voucher for the online shop.


See you next week

  2. Such a lovely blue card (not an easy colour to craft with IMO). Love how you've used the doily stamp in two different ways, really effective. I can see why you love it.

  3. It's gorgeous! I love the crochet stamp, it's fabulous xx

  4. That's so pretty, Fliss... makes you understand how the Victorians thought gentle blue was right for girls while martial pink and red were for boys. Delightful!
