Step 3  Using Garden Notes Lavender die set cut 1 stem from green cardstock shade with Distress Ink.  Cut plate of florets 10-16 times from yellow cardstock.  Place right side up on hard rubber pad / art eraser using toothpick cup each floret.  Using Kids Choice Glue attach florets to stem base forming Goldenrod.

Step 4  Die cut Garden Notes Canning Jar twice from clear sticker paper.  Using Copic Markers color 1 jar first using Y13 color whole thing.  Then use E39 color leaving a small yellow area in center then add E29 coloring around edges.  You want the jar to have that amber color.  Adhere the clear jar over top of jar you just colored sandwiching color between the jars.

Step 5  Die cut 2 Garden Notes Sunflower 2 from white Soft Finish Cardstock color using Copic Markers.  Cut leaves from green cardstock shade using Distress Ink.  Die cut center florets from 2 shades of brown cardstock.  Using Loop Tool from Garden Notes All Metal Tool Kit and Garden Notes Molding Mat shape flowers.  Using Leaf Tool and Leaf Pad shape leaves use bright green PanPastels from Set 1 to highlight stem line down center of leaf.  Place florets on art eraser use tooth pick to cup each floret.

Step 6  Place stems of goldenrod down through top opening of canning jar.  Add thin strip of dimensional tape to back of stems. Adhere jar to left side of card front.

Step 7   Build sunflowers on top of jar using Kids Choice Glue.  Let dry then add Brown Pollen to flower centers.

My Once In A Lifetime

Hello my crafty friends welcome to my blog!

Today I have an anniversary card which I made for my hubby to celebrate our 49th anniversary.   For this card I combined using dies as well as old school of stamping and fussy cutting for my main image.

Here is how it was created.

Step 1  From white Soft Finish Cardstock cut heart using Els van de Burgt Studio Stitched Hearts – 4th largest die.  Using Susan’s Garden Notes Earth & Sky Stencil and PanPastels Set 2 blue for sky green for grass.

Step 2  Using black ink stamped couple on bench twice onto white Soft Finish Cardstock.  Using alcohol markers color both images then fussy cut both.  Kids Choice Glue adhere 1 image to heart.

Step 3  Using clear Nuvo Crystal Drops add raindrops to heart and umbrella of second image.  Set aside to dry.

Step 4  Form 6″ X 6″ tent fold card base.  Emboss front of card with embossing folder of your choice.

Step 5  For inside of card cut white cardstock 5-3/4″ X 11-3/4″ score in half.  Using Garden Notes Earth & Sky Stencil along with Garden Notes PanPastels Set 2 add clouds and grass.

Step 6  Cut Pop Up in center lining up in center fold using largest die in Elizabeth Craft Designs General Pop Up die set.  Work folds in pop ups.  Add Clear Double Sided Adhesive to back staying away from the pop ups.  Adhere to inside of card lining up the creases and edges.  NOTE:  work 1 side at a time removing protective covering from adhesive.

Step 7  From black cardstock cut 2 ( 1) piece with Clear Double Sided Adhesive and (1) without adhesive Happy Anniversary from Suzanne Cannon Happy Anniversary die set.  Adhere one with adhesive on back to top of one without adhesive.  Cut very narrow strips of clear plastic adhere to back of words using Kids Choice Glue on anniversary add narrow plastic vertical strip back side centered (this will give you something to use to adhere to pop up) adhere to front pop up using Kids Choice Glue.  Adhere happy using Kids Choice Glue to top pop up.

Step 8  Cut 2 –  49th from black cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back adhere one on top of other then adhere to card at base of pop up.

Step 9  Once raindrops are dry on second image add dimensional tape to back adhere directly over first image on heart.

Step 10  Adhere heart to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step 11  Using black ink stamp sentiment on 3/4″ X 1-3/4″ white Soft Finish Cardstock then adhere  to black cardstock cut 1″ X 2″.  Using dimensional tape on back adhere to lower right of card front.

Life’s A Picnic

lifesapicnic1

Welcome to my blog my crafty friends!

Today on my blog I have a really quick and fun card.  Recently I was introduced to the Ultimate Glitter Napkin Technique.  Well once you start it is hard to stop you certainly look at napkins in a whole different way.

For my card today I have used Joset Designs Backyard BBQ, Joset Designs Summer Fun Sentiments, ModaScrap Stitched Fishtail Banners and Garden Notes Stitched Fitted Frame It- Square sets.

Here is how card was created.

Step 1  Form 6′ X 6″ card base.

Step 2  Cut True Green Soft Finish Cardstock 5-3/4″ X 5-3/4″. Using 6th largest die from Garden Note Stitched Fitted Frames – Squares lay on cardstock so it will cut a diamond shape die cut.

Step 3  Napkin Technique:   Choose napkin of your choice separate the top printed layer from the other layer / layers (you can discard these).  Cut piece of white cardstock just slightly smaller than green cardstock.  Add Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the top.  Add napkin by slowly peeling away protective covering from adhesive little at a time lay napkin on adhesive little at a time avoiding wrinkles ( I did get a wrinkle so be careful).  Press napkin side into Versamark ink making sure completely covered.  Sprinkle Glitter Embossing Powder over entire piece heat set with your heat gun.  (YouTube has a video for this technique you can find it here.)

Step 4  Add Clear Double Sided Adhesive around outer edges of all 4 sides on front of napkin piece.  Line up opening of green cardstock over napkin adhere.

Step 5  Adhere to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step 6  Cut Stitched Fishtail Banners 1 small from white or off white cardstock 1 next to smallest from coordinating cardstock.  On smaller white one using black ink stamp Life’s a picnic using stamp from Joset Designs Summer Fun Sentiments.  Adhere together using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.  Add to card front using dimensional tape.

Step 7  Cut 2 watermelon slices from Joset Designs Backyard Barbeque die set using white Soft Finish Cardstock.  Color with Copic markers.  Add to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive and dimensional tape to pop 1 slice.

Hope you have enjoyed this quick tutorial.  Be sure to try this napkin technique it is fun and with all the different napkins out there the sky is the limit.  Wish the picture would show the glitter picture just does not do it justice.  Thank you for stopping by my blog.

Snowflakes

snowflakesWelcome my crafty friends!

Today my post is a quick card I created using some of Joset Designs newly released dies Snowflakes, Snowflake Border and Words 5 Winter Wishes.

Here is how the card was created.

Step 1  Form 6″ X 6″ card base.

Step 2  Cut 6″ X 6″ white Soft Finish Cardstock add Clear Double Sided Adhesive to top.  Add Silk Microfine Glitter – Sea Glass to adhesive burnish in with fingers.

Step 3  Die cut bottom edge of card front using Joset Designs newest release Snowflake Border.

Step 4  Using Joset Designs new release Snowflakes die cut 2 from white Soft Finish Cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive on front.  Add Silk Microfine Glitter – Cool Diamond to adhesive burnish in with fingers.  Adhere to card front using Kids Choice Glue on back center of each snowflake.  Add pearls to center of each snowflake.  (I use a bit of Kids Choice Glue to pearls even if they have adhesive on back because of the glitter)

Step 5  Cut black cardstock 2″ X 4″ add Clear Double Sided Adhesive to front cover adhesive with black Silk Microfine Glitter burnish in with fingers.  From Joset Designs new release die set Words 5 Winter Wishes cut Let It Snow.  Adhere to card front using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 6  Add Clear Double Sided Adhesive to bottom 1-1/2″ of inside card.  Add Silk Microfine Glitter – Cool Diamond burnish in with fingers.  This was done so to give the snowflake border glittery effect through the cutouts the picture does not show it but it does look good.
