Jasmine and Iris

Jasmine and IrisHello everyone today I am posting a card that I made using a couple of Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s latest releases  which, you can find at Elizabeth Craft Designs.  Jasmine and Iris are blooming on this card although I am not in the right growing zone for Jasmine the Iris grow well here in Central Maine.

Here is the tutorial for the card:

  • Cut green cardstock 6″ X 12″ scoring at 6″ fold on score line forming a 6″ X 6″ card base.
  • Cut white cardstock 5-3/4″ square and die cut 1 corner (Tim Holtz Alterations die used here).
  • Cut 3 corners from green cardstock using corner die from Tags & More 1 – Lace (or a corner die of your choice).
  • Ink all edges (Distressed Ink – Vintage Photo used here)
  • Attach white cardstock piece to the card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
  • Attach corner pieces to corners away from die cut corner.
  • Using Violet PanPastel from set 1 and a makeup sponge  sponge PanPastel onto white crdstock or for a darker flower use a purple cardstock.  Cut petals for 3 Iris from this cardstock.  On the right side of petals use a dark purple marker and draw in lines in center of each set of petals.  Turn petals face down on molding mat using large loop tool from Susan’s Garden Tool Set pull down through each petal shaping the petals.  Turn petals over and using medium ball tool push in center cupping each set of petals.  Glue small set of petals to center of larger set of petals offsetting petals.  Cut 3 stamens from yellow cardstock.  Add a small line of clear drying glue to bottom edge and roll up using tweezers starting at tab end – fan out the stamens.  Dip bottom of stamen into clear drying glue and place in center of flower.  Cut 2 stem pieces and several leaves from green cardstock.  Lay 1 stem piece and other stems face down on leaf molding mat taking leaf tool draw vein line down center of all.  Using Bright Yellow Green PanPastel from set 1 shade leaves and stems on front side.
  • Cut Jasmine flower and stamens 7-8 times from white cardstock and  stems and leaves several times from green cardstock using Susan’s Garden Notes Jasmine die.  Shade center of each flower with yellow PanPastel Set 1.  Lay flowers face down on molding mat and with small loop tool pull tool from top to bottom shaping petals. Turn flowers over and with small ball tool push into center cupping each flower. To form stamen spread a small amount of clear drying glue on bottom of stamen and roll up using tweezers starting at tab end..  Spread stamen out and with black marker make small dots on each stamen.  Attach stamen to center of each flower using clear drying glue.  Place leaves and stems face down on leaf molding pad and with leaf tool draw vein line down center of each leaf.  Turn leaves over add Bright Yellow Green PanPastel and Rust PanPastels from set 1 for shading.  Using tweezers pinch bottom of each leaf and lay on molding mat face down rub end of leaf with medium ball tool to add shape.
  • Attach Iris stems to front of card using clear drying glue then attach flowers to stems.  Add Jasmine flowers and leaves.
