Echinacea Hugs

Echinaceahugs

Hello my crafty friends,

Having such fun with Susan’s new dies and Tonic products.  Today I have used Susan’s Garden Club dies Echinacea, Japanese Painted Fern and Ladybug & Stems.  I played with the two colors that I have of Nuvo Mica Mist for a background.

Card base is 6″ X 6″ using black cardstock cut 6″ X 12″ scored at 6″ fold to form card.

Added 5-3/4″ square Pearlescent Cardstock – Ivory Sheen using Nuvo Tape Runner

Using 5-1/2″ square of black cardstock put into a cardboard box (to protect area from over spray) spray Pecan Peach Mica Mist let dry (it dries quickly) then spray Nuvo Wild Olive.  Once dry adhere to card front using Nuvo Tape Runner.

Using Susan’s Garden Club Echinacea die cut 5 sets from white cardstock. Using Copic markers color flowers I did 3 in orange and 2 in yellow. Shape and put together using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  Cut florets from brown card stock using a toothpick cup each then adhere to center of flower.  Use a little liquid adhesive dab center then sprinkle with a little pollen ( I mixed brown and reddish orange together).  Cut several leaves from green cardstock shade with green ink and shape.

Cut 1 set of Susan’s Garden Club Japanese Painted Fern from green cardstock shade with green ink I did not color as a painted fern I just used as a regular fern.  Shape then using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive  adhere ferns to right side of card front.

Arrange flowers on card front once placed where you want them adhere using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  Add leaves.

Cut Ladybug from white cardstock using Susan’s Garden Club Ladybug & Stems set, color with alcohol markers shape with small ball tool adhere to one of the leaves.

Die cut 1 diamond from black cardstock and 1 next size down from Pearlescent cardstock.  Stamp sentiment attach the two together using Nuvo Tape Runner and then adhere to left side of card front.  Add self adhesive black gems to each corner.  You could also use black Nuvo Crystal Drops but I did not have them.

I do hope you have enjoyed my card today and hope that it has inspired you.  Susan’s dies are available at the moment from only Create & Craft but after 30 days will be available through Tonic Studios – UK and January they will be available in USA.

Thank you for stopping by today and until next time – Happy Crafting!
