Hello there! Grace here.
Happy Monday! We’re back with another bloggy tutorial and set of juicy offers!
Next up in our January craft bubble is another true expert (and good friend) Jane Telford!
Jane is beyond talented… and has been kind enough to put together a brilliant step by step tutorial for us on how to turn a stamped creation into a parchment creation! I’ll let Jane take it from here. Let’s have a look…
People often see a design done in ink and say “you could do that in parchment!” but don’t always know how to go about doing that.
I took one of the samples I had done in ink with the Poppets and used that to make a card in Parchment, using a combination of stamping and Groovi techniques. Let me show you!
This is the original artwork, using stamps and ink…
and this is the piece that we are heading towards

Tumble dryer Sheet
Step 1. Choose the parchment you want. I wanted something to give me a colourful whimsy background and went with Waimea Falls. Wipe it on the back with the tumble dryer sheet. Cut out a square using the largest die in the set.
Use the plate and emboss the double white line around the edge.
Step 2. Using a black archival inkpad, stamp the Poppets into place on the front of the parchment. Leave it to dry. Depending on your ink pad, it could take a few minutes or it could take more! You can always place a piece of copy paper over and blot it gently to see if it is dry.
Step 3. Turn over to the back of the parchment and emboss the bottom line of the background using the mountains plate from the deluxe starter kit, avoiding the Poppets. A lightwave panel makes it easier!
Step 4. Using the fairy plate emboss grass along the embossed line.
Step 5. Use the mountains plate (from the deluxe starter kit) again to add the rest of the background avoiding the grasses and the fairies.
Step 6. Add some white work to the wings of the fairies and also in the grass.
Step 7. Remove the colour from the back of the Poppets and the hills part of the picture using the white ink pencil eraser.
Step 8. Colour the hills using Perga Liner B Pencils, blending with dorso oil or colour the Poppets with the Perga Colour pens to make them stand out more.
Step 9. Cut the designer paper to 7 x 7 inches and attach the parchment to it using brads.
Step 10. Mount on an 8×8 card blank and add a sentiment sticker.
Voila! How stunning is that? I love the colours.
So now we know how to transfer techniques. Very very helpful.
Thank you, dear Jane, for sharing your tricks and tips with us!
Lotsa love, Grace xo
