Crystal Timepiece

Morning, Today I am sharing a card I made for the lunch of the Brand New Easel card die's. These are smashing dies, to enable you to create those perfect base, either plain or elaborate. Leaving you to add your own mark with decoration, let your creativity flow.

For this card you will need:
Timepiece Easel Die
Tissue Paper
Alcohol Inks
3D Lacquer
Gloss Black card
Silver Mirri card

Step 1: Create you acetate background. Add the alcohol inks of your choice randomly over the back of your acetate, upto 4 colours give a good result. Then add 3D Lacquer all over the back of your piece, finally cover this with crinkled tissue paper. Make sure this is thoroughly stuck down to your work and leave to dry.

Step 2: Create you easel base using black gloss card. Cut a smaller shield from silver mirri and secure it to your base with all purpose glue.

Step 3: Again using your smallest shield along with the smaller of the two inserts, cut into your black card. Secure this over the mirri on your base.

Step 4: Use the large shield to cut the top part from Silver Mirri and the acetate. From a piece of the black, cut the large shield, including the two inserts.

Step 5: Cut additional cogs from the black, mirri and acetate you have left over. Also cut an additional pocket watch from black.

Step 6: Assemble all the parts you have cut using Collall all purpose glue

Step 7: Finally arrange your cogs which will form the stopper for your card.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and see what I am sharing today. I hope you enjoyed the tutorial. I hope you will take the time to add your comments or feedback. I do like to read them. I do have a question, Would you prefer just to have a photo of the finished card on facebook rather than a tutorial. Many thanks. For now Take care and Happy Crafting.xx


  1. Lovely card Nick. Unusual shape. Cannot answer the Facebook question Nick as I don’t have Facebook.

  2. Another gorgeous card,showing off so many different techniques.
    For me I think the place for your tutorial is here on your blog and then on Facebook a picture of the final card,with maybe a brief description and a link to your blog for those that want more information. However that is just my opinion.
    Thank you for sharing Nicola xxx
