Hi friends! I love to grab different supplies to use in my cardmaking. You can incorporate almost any other craft or hobby into your next card making session. Do you like to use polymer clay? Do you like to sew? Paint? By looking at the supplies you already have for other crafts you can stretch your supplies and come up with some truly unique and beautiful cards!
In today’s video I’ll show you how to combine stamps and clay, make a cute fence without a die and hand stitch on cards. We will also use paint and ink! I hope you give one of these techniques a try in your next card!

Directions for flowers:
Before you begin get your clay roses made. If you are using air dry clay make the roses the day before.
1. Condition clay and roll into pea size balls. Flatten.
2. Ink up rose stamps with pigment ink and stamp on the clay disks.
3. Bake according to package directions.
4. You can also paint the roses later if you like!
1. Make a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″card base from kraft. From white card trim a 4″x 5 1/4″ panel and make six 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ strips and two 1/8″ x 4 1/4″ strips. Die cut or tear 2 grass strips from green and punch or hand cut a scalloped oval from any color scrap.
2. Ink the white panel with blue using the scallop oval as a cloud mask then ink the bottom with green. Protect the top part of the panel with a post-it note! Spritz with water if using distress oxide ink for a fun effect!
3. Trim the fence strips so they have points at the top and ink with a blending brush and brown and grey ink. Ink edges with a sponge.
4. Assemble the fence directly on the card. Stamp rose vines over the fence. Glue grass at the bottom.
5. Poke stitching holes with a needle tool or tack on a foam pad. Back-stitch i the holes with green thread.
6. Glue roses on card. You can stamp a sentiment and add a bird like I did if you like!
