Walk in the park tutorial

Good Morning!

As promised here is the tutorial for one of my Wee Folk cards

You will need

Wee Folk Claritystamp set 1

Floral Figures Claritystamp set

Cherry Blossom Claritystamp

Love and best wishes Claritystamp

Clarity brushes

Gelli plate card

Adirondack dye Inkpads, Lemonade, Terracotta, Juniper.

Archival Inkpads, Black, Sap Green


Low tack tape

Black micron pen

Post it notes

Heart die cutter


Attach low tack tape to a piece of Gelli card to create your frame.

Brush Lemonade ink around the edges of all the windows.



Using post it notes, isolate the bottom right window.

Stamp the cherry blossom in black archival ink


Stamp the children on swings and use a micron pen to fix the swings to the branches.


Stamp the grass from the floral figures set using Sap Green archival ink.

Sponge a little terracotta ink around the top.

Stamp the family into place in the top left window

Add the cherry blossom and the grasses

Now this is where I have a photo missing...add terracotta ink to the top, just like you did with the children on the swings. And add some terracotta around the two remaining windows.

I then die cut a couple of hearts and stamped them with the sphere shape from the floral figures, but I decided two was too much, see below?


So I took one away and replaced it the one of my fave sentiment stamps.

Use a paintbrush to colour the blossoms with terracotta ink.

Frame your little windows and a heart with a micron pen.

I coloured my cardstock with the Inkpads id used for a good match, layered up and fixed onto an 8 inch cardblank.


Hope you like it!

Thanks for popping in.
