Clay: I used Sculpey 3 but you can use any kind
*You will need an oven to bake polymer clay or you can use air dry clay (let dry overnight) if you like
Pigment inks (clay)
Distress Oxide Inks (background and clay)
Dye inks (leaves and sentiment)
Peg stamp set Brambly Rose:
Plentiful Harvest:
*I mentioned the fern stamp from this set:
Unmounted stamp set Country Lane:
White, kraft and green cardstock
Acrylic paint (optional) and 1/2″ flat brush for dry brushing:
Ink Blending brushes
Double stick tape
liquid glue
scissors, grass die cut, paper trimmer
Needle and thread
scallop punch (optional)

Before you begin get your clay roses make. 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!

Card Directions:
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″ wide 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!

  1. From a great crafty class all about thread … use 18" length (length of your arm) – longer thread will begin to fray from going in and out too many times, may tangle. Also, 'condition' cut length of thread by running it through your fingers a few times to smooth the fibers before you sew. I ? these hints for my own handwork so sharing FYI even though this is not a sewing tutorial.

  2. My note was not edited. I will try again. If you really want to be fussy about tangles this will help. Pull off 2 pieces of thread. Put them together in the same way they came off the spool. If you are not sure you have them with the right ends together run each thread through your fingers. One side will feel smoother than the other. Put the thread back together with the smooth side going the same direction on both threads. Thread the needle with both ends through eye. Now pull both threads through your fingers once or twice. This where you feel any kinks leave the thread. If it still tangles you put the thread ends in your needle at the wrong end. Thread the other end through the needle. I am telling you all this because you make jewelry and this info also applies when beading with double thread.

  3. If you really want to be fussy cut to pieces of thread. Keep them in the same direction off the spool. You want to be positive run yout fingers. You will feel which direction on the thread is smooth. Make sure that both pieces of thread have  smooth side.  Another way to say it. You do not have one side of the two rhreads rough both threads should be smooth.  Thread the needle with both thread ends going together. Now run the threads between your fingers until the 2 feel smooth. I am telling all this because you make jewelry. The technique goes for jewelry also.

  4. What a beautiful card and so many great techniques. Definitely a keeper. Thanks for your informative videos, always presented with such an upbeat and positive attitude. They always make my day. Love from Windsor, UK. Sue Q x

  5. Super cute card. I bet your fence would have looked even more distressed if you had embossed it with a wood grain embossing folder and the ink would have sunk into the recessed areas.

  6. Flip the stamp and place the ruler across the back (which is facing you now). Look to see your two marks and draw a line across. you now have a reference of where your words are and where you you can place your stamp down. No special tools needed!

  7. TIP:. I mark my rubber stamps with an arrow pointing up so I know what direction the stamp will read. With the stamp facing me I line up the words on note paper so I can judge where the line will fall. Taking a marker I mark where the line starts and ends on the sides of the stamp.

  8. I've never played with claty (other than with my kids), but this makes me seriously think about trying it. You always make everything look so easy. 😀
