For this card I used:

Tip: Layer a few stamps onto one block if you’re stamping them all in the same colour. Spread them apart a bit and you ink all of them up at once and do one lot of stamping.

Tip: Have all your images and card ready to die cut, so you can do it all in one go. Then you can sit and create without interrupting your creativity to use your Big Shot

Did you give me a thumbs up and subscribe to my YouTube channel?


Thank you for your support, I do appreciate it.

Tip: When using Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders, lightly spritz the card with water first then run it through the Big Shot.

Use Stamping Sponges to distress with ink an embossed piece of card.

Tip: Cut the Stamping Sponges into 6 or 8 pieces and use a punched piece of card folded in half and stapled to the point of the cut Stamping Sponges as a handle. I also write the colour on the handle.

Colour the images as follows:

Tip: I find when colouring with Stampin’ Blends, I use the lighter colour first on a small area. Then I use the darker colour to add shades and depth, I then go over the area again with the lighter colour, blending the two shades together.

  1. Love the combination of Highland Heather and Soft Sea Foam on your card. It works so well with the stamp set and the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. You’ve inspired me to use this set, and try the centre step card.
