Daisy Mums in a Shadowbox

Welcome My Crafty Friends,

Today I have my 5th and final Breast Cancer Survivor card for this year. I am happy and sad all at the same time. I am so thankful they have survived and I have them people to send cards to but sad that they have had to endure this terrible disease. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE if you have not had your mammogram yet make that appointment today it can save your life!

Today my card is another shadowbox card which is so easy and fun to create. Susan’s Autumn Flora Button & Daisy Mum set was used along with Foliage & Ladybug set.

To create the shadowbox I went by Susan’s Facebook Live on Susan’s Garden Club which you can find here. Once my Shadowbox was completed I added to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Next I created 3 stems of Nandina and 2 stems of Eucalyptus which I arranged inside shadowbox attaching with Kids Choice Glue.

I cut 3 Daisy Mums from white cardstock and colored centers with Copic RV52. Leaves were cut from green cardstock then shaded and shaped. Susan has a YouTube video for creating the Daisy Mums which you can find here. Mums were added to center of shadowbox using Kids Choice Glue.

Thanks for stopping by today I hope that I have given you some inspiration to create.

My card today is another card for a Breast Cancer Survivor. PLEASE if you haven’t gotten your mammogram yet this year get it as it could save your life!

Today I have used Susan’s Autumn Flora – Oriental Poppy along with Spellbinders Lace Hearts.

My card base is a 6″ X 6″ created from white cardstock. Pink cardstock was cut 5-3/4″ X 5-3/4″ adhered to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

White cardstock was cut 5-1/2″ X 5-1/2 Spellbinders Lace Hearts was used to cut design in cardstock. I found the center of the piece then placed die on cardstock and cut. Once I got design cut I erased pencil marks. See pictures below.

Once design was cut Clear Double Sided Adhesive was used to adhere to card front.

From white cardstock 5 poppies and 2 buds were cut using Autumn Flora Oriental Poppy. 3 Poppies were colored with Copic Markers 2 were left white. they were shaped and assembled. Susan has a YouTube video for this which you can find here.

Autumn Flora Foliage & Lady Bug set was used to cut Nandina, Eucalyptus and Ladybug. See Susan’s YouTube for this here.

From white cardstock 4 corners were cut using Spellbinders Lace Hearts Die Set. Corners were attached using Kids Choice Glue. Note: had I thought ahead I would have added Clear Double Sided Adhesive to back of cardstock before cutting eliminating the use of liquid glue.

Poppies and leaves were added to card from using Kids Choice Glue.

Poppies for a Survivor

Welcome My Crafty Friends,

My card today is my second survivor card for Breast Cancer Awareness 2020. For this card I used Susan’s Oriental Poppy and Foliage & Ladybug sets from her Autumn Flora Collection along with Becca Feeken’s Adoria Square Shadowbox Frame set.

Card is 6″ X 6″ – cut white heavy cardstock 12″ X 6″ score at 6″ fold on score line. Cut pink cardstock 5-3/4″ square attach to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

From white cardstock I cut 3 largest dies from Adoria Square Shadowbox Frame set. Art Glitter Glue Dries Clear as well as Clear Double Sided Adhesive were used to adhere to front of card. From same set the smallest plain square die was used to cut pieces of white cardstock for the sentiment. Using black ink sentiment was stamped on square it was then adhered to card front center using dimensional dots.

Three Oriental Poppies plus 1 bud were cut from white cardstock and colored using RV21 Copic marker. Susan has a YouTube video for creating the poppies you can find it here.

Rosemary branches were cut from green cardstock shaded with green ink and shaped using leaf pad and tool. I made 6 stems. Using die for tiny flowers I cut it twice from white cardstock shaped with small ball tool.

Kids Choice Glue was used to build arrangement on card front starting with laying down Rosemary then adding Poppies and small white flowers. Final addition is the Ladybugs which I coated with Nuvo Crystal Glaze to make them shine.

Survivor Button Mum

Welcome My Crafty Friends,

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month so PLEASE if you haven’t had your mammogram yet schedule it today! A few years ago I started making a couple of cards each October to send to different survivors (not necessarily breast cancer but cancer survivors) so today I have my first one for October 2020.

For my card I used Susan’s Garden Club Autumn Flora Button & Daisy Mum set and Foliage & Ladybug set along with one of Becca Feeken’s die sets. My sentiment is from a stamp set I bought several years ago it is a fundraiser for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and is still available from ellenhutson.com .

Card base is 6″x6″ created from white cardstock. Pink cardstock was cut 5-3/4″ square then embossed. Clear Double Sided Adhesive was used to adhere to card front.

Berry Branch from Foliage & Ladybug set was cut twice from green cardstock then adhered together with Kids Choice Glue. Shaded with a little green ink and shaped a little with ball tool so it wasn’t totally flat. White Nuvo Crystal Drops were used to make white berries set aside to dry completely.

Eucalyptus stems from Foliage & Ladybug die set were cut from green cardstock shaded and shaped.

1 Button Mum was cut from white cardstock then colored with Copic marker (I really don’t remember which pink ) shaped and assembled using Kids Choice Glue. Leaves were cut from green cardstock shaded and shaped.

From white cardstock I cut Becca Feeken’s Lisette Oval Shadowbox Frame by taping them all but center piece together and cut all at once. Art Glitter Glue Dries Clear was used to attach pieces to card front all but the center oval. My sentiment was stamped with black ink then I used dimensional dots to adhere in center.

Kids Choice Glue was used to adhere the Eucalyptus, Berry Branch, Button Mum and Ladybug.

I do hope that my creation has inspired you to create a card and send it to someone that might just need a little encouragement.
