Daisy Mum in a Bottle

Hello My Crafty Friends,

Today I have a card that was inspired by a picture I saw on Facebook. This is the inspiration picture.

Inspiration Picture

My card is 5″ X 6-1/4″ created from white cardstock cut 10″ X 6-1/4″ scored at 5″.

The bittersweet is something I like to make ahead so the Nuvo Drops have time to dry well. Susan has how to video on the berries here

The brown bottle was created using Shrink Film. First I cut bottle on Cricut at 8″ then traced onto Shrink Film then colored using a brown Copic Marker. Using Heat Tool I shrunk it down it measures 3-1/2″.

Pattern paper was cut 4-1/2″ X 5-7/8″ then adhered to card front with clear Double Sided Adhesive.

The largest die in the Petite Picot Rectangle set was used along with the next to the largest A2 Matting Basic A die set to create a frame. I set the matting die inside the Picot Rectangle taped together and cut from white cardstock. Frame was adhered over pattern paper using Art Glitter Glue Dries Clear.

I cut 1 Daisy Mum from white cardstock the tiny center flowers were cut from yellow cardstock and leaves were cut from green cardstock. Susan has a YouTube video for the Daisy Mum found here.

For stem I freehanded one from green cardstock then adhered to back of bottle with a little Kids Choice Glue then a bit more glue used to attach bottle to card front.

Using Kids Choice Glue flower, bittersweet and leaves were added.

Lady bug was cut, colored and shaped then added to leaf. Nuvo Crystal Glaze was used to make it shine.

One Of Susan’s New Autumn Quotes was used for sentiment stamped in black then die cut.

Thank you for stopping by I do hope that this has inspired you to create!

Framed Coreopsis

Welcome my crafty friends,

Today I have another card for you featuring Spellbinders Susan’s Autumn Flora Coreopsis along with foliage ( foliage with a twist it is similar to a weed that grows here in Maine). My card mats are from Spellbinders APG series Petite Picot Squares.

Here is how I created my 6″ x 6″ card.

Step 1 I created the beaded part using Styrofoam beads separated into 4 containers. Added a few drops of Distress Oxide Reinker in each (Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Aged Mahogany and Peeled Paint) mix each one to distribute color. Next I mixed beads together in another cup. I will tell you maybe alcohol reinker may way work better as the Distress Oxide do not dry well and tend to muddy the colors.

Step 2 Using 4″ piece of flower wire wrapped with floral tape I rolled top 1″ – 1-1/4″ of wire in Kids Choice Glue then dipped into colored beads and manipulate with your fingers to get shape. Heat gun was used very carefully to dry a little then more glue was used by brush then more beads were added until I had shape I wanted.

Step 3 Used white cardstock to cut 3 Coreopsis. Copic markers were used to color. Susan has a YouTube video for creating which can be found here.

Step 4 From green cardstock 2 Nandina Branches were cut as well as 2 Rosemary branches. They were shaded and shaped. Susan has a YouTube video for Her Foliage & Ladybug die set which can be found here.

This is the inspiration

Step 5 From white cardstock I cut 1 of largest Spellbinder Petite Pico Squares then using die for next size down I placed a square die inside taped together and cut a frame from white cardstock.

Step 6 On white 6″ X 6″ card base I used Clear Double Sided Adhesive to attach largest square. Next I used narrow dimensional tape strips added to back of frame adhering over square as diamond shape.

Step 7 Kids Choice Glue was used to add foliage and flowers.

Step 8 Add Ladybug.

I do hope you have enjoyed my post and that it has inspired you to create!

Encircled Coreopsis

Hello My Crafty Friends,

Today I have a card I created using some of Susan’s Autumn Flora Collection. I am using Coreopsis and Foliage along with Spellbinders APG Picot Petite Circles.

Card Base 6″ X 6″ tent fold

Colored cardstock cut 5-3/4″ X 5-3/4″ adhered to card front with Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Using Nestabilites Standard Circles I cut 2 frames by taping 2 circle dies togetherand adhered together using Art Glitter Glue Dries Clear. From white cardstock I created another frame using Picot Petite die and Standard Circles which I adhered to the basic frames using glue. Added narrow dimensional strips to back then adhered to card front.

From green cardstock I cut 2 berry branches using the die from the Foliage die set (I like to cut twice to give stability) adhere one on top of other. Use green ink to shade. Added white berries using white Nuvo Drops. I like to do my berry branches in the very beginning so they have time to dry while I am creating the rest of the card. Susan has a YouTube video demo which you can find here I also cut 2 Nadena branches from green cardstock then shaded and shaped.

From white cardstock I cut 3 Coreopsis then used Copic markers to color. Susan has a YouTube video for the Coreopsis which can be found here

Using Kids Choice Glue I created my bouquet inside circle on card front. I first put down the Nadena cut Berry Branches apart added them next to Nadena, Coreopsis were added next (I did build right on card as Susan does) lastly I added the leaves.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today – I hope that my card has been inspirational to you and you will go create.

Button Mums and Autumn Hydrangea

Welcome my crafty friends hope you are all staying safe.

Today I have a card I designed using Susan’s brand new release Autumn Flora Button Mums and Autumn Hydrangea through Spellbinders. Another fantastic release from Susan I just love working with her dies.

My card today is a 6″ X 6″ tent fold created from white cardstock.

Patterned paper from my stash was used for background cut 5-3/4″ X 5-3/4″ adhered to card front using clear double sided adhesive.

Amazing Paper Grace Picot Petite Circle was cut from white cardstock using largest die in set. Circled was adhered to card front using clear double sided adhesive.

Two Button Mums were cut from white cardstock then colored with Copic Markers then shaped and assembled. I used Susan’s old tools to shape my flowers but she has great new set coming out it should be available by January 2021.

Off white cardstock and Distress Oxide Inks were used to color florets. I picked 3 or 4 colors that I wanted in my hydrangea and smeared in various areas on the cardstock both front and back leaving areas here and there off white. Florets were then die cut from this paper several times (I would rather have left over than to run out) then shaped and assembled. Susan is doing YouTube videos for each die set in the release her hydrangea video is here

Foliage & Ladybug die set was used to make the Berry Branch and and Eucalyptus. I cut 2 Berry Branches from green cardstock adhere them together with Art Glitter Glue. Green ink was used to shade then Nuvo Drops Plum Pudding was used to make berries which I put on both sides so I add berries to one side set aside to dry then do the other side. I always do my berries branches first so they will have time to dry well. Lady bug was cut from white cardstock colored with red Copic Marker black head, dots added with fine point pen and shaped with medium ball stylus. Two Eucalyptus branches were cut from green cardstock shaded with green ink and a bit of rusty red PanPastels was added to base of leaves I then shaped the leaves using a ball stylus.

Beacons Kids Choice Glue was used to add everything to card front starting with Berry Branch, Eucalyptus, Hydrangea, Mums, leaves and of course the Ladybug.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today I do hope it has inspired you to create. Until next time Happy Crafting!
