Flame Lily Birthday

Flame Lily Birthday

Hello my crafty friends welcome to my blog!

Today I have a card I created using Susan’s new Garden Notes Flame Lily die set.  This is my first attempt will continue to work on them.

Here is how card was created.

Step 1  Create card base from 110# white Soft Finish Cardstock.  Mine is 5-7/8″ square instead of 6″ square as I wanted my embossing folder to work.

Step 2  Cut white Soft Finish Cardstock 5-7/8″ square then emboss.  I trimmed away the top part of embossed piece along curved line.  Although I don’t know the name of my embossing folder or the maker I did look on line and found that Joyful Home and Tatter Lace do make some similar ones.  Using Clear Double Sided Adhesive to attach embossed piece to card front.

Step 3  From 110# white Soft Finish Cardstock cut 3 Garden Notes Flame Lily cut leaves and stamen from green cardstock.  Using alcohol markers in colors of your choice color petals  (I have 2 red and yellow and 1 purple and green) then shape using Garden Notes All Metal 4 pc. Tool Kit.  Susan has how to videos on her Facebook page Susan’s Garden Club.

Step 4  From green cardstock cut set of Garden Notes Ladder Fern.   Shade with Distress Ink and pinch up on fronds to give dimension. I also cut set from fun foam and made my own stamps – cut 3 each and stacked them together.  I used glue as my foam did not have adhesive on back.  Using green ink I stamped a few ferns on upper top left of card front.

Step 5  Build your arrangement starting with ferns adhering with Kids Choice Glue.  Build lilies on card then add leaves.

Step 6  From black glitter paper w/ Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back die cut Suzanne Cannon’s  A Way With Words Small Happy Birthday.  Adhere to upper right of card.

Step 7  Add self adhesive pearls.

Hope I have inspired you to go make a card.

Hello my crafty friends welcome to my blog.

Here in Maine we are still waiting for spring weather to take away the snow so until then the only gardening I can do is paper gardening.  Today from my paper garden I have a card I created for you using more of Susan’s Garden Notes new releases.  This card has the new Garden Notes Heart Grapevine Wreath, Ranunculus and Calla Lily.

Here is how card was created.

Step 1  From green cardstock cut 2 Garden Notes Leafy Berry Branch.  Using Distress Ink shade.  Using Molding Pad and Medium Ball Tool from All Metal 4 pc. Tool Kit shape leaves.  Using Nuvo Crystal Drops add berries set aside to dry.  When dry add berries to back side let dry.

Step 2  Form 6″x6″ card base using large embossing folder emboss card front only.

Step 3  Cut 2-4 Garden Notes Heart Grapevine Wreaths from brown cardstock.  (I used 4 on this card)  Stack wreaths using Kids Choice Glue sparingly so as not to glue twigs together just center,  Use fingers or tweezers to lift ends of twigs to give dimension.

Step 4  Find heart shape that fits center ECD Stitched Hearts used her but you could probably use the center that cuts out of the wreath if you cut 1 from white cardstock and use distress inks to make a background.

Step 5  Using black ink stamp sentiment on right half of heart then using Clear Double Sided Adhesive adhere to center of card front.

Step 6 Using Kids Choice Glue adhere heart wreath over background heart.

Step 7  Cut set of Garden Notes Ladder Fern from green cardstock shade with Distress Ink then pinch up on fronds to give dimension.

Step 8  Cut 1 Garden Notes Ranunculus and 2 Calla Lilies from white 90# Soft Finish Cardstock.  Color, shape and assemble flowers.

Step 9  Using Kids Choice Glue build arrangement on wreath starting with berry branches and ferns then adding flowers and leaves.
