Fallen Leaves

Welcome my crafty friends, So glad you stopped by. Today I have a card I created using Susan Garden Club – Autumn Flora – Woodland Garden Leaves.

Card base 6″ X 6″ from white cardstock

Colored mat is 5-3/4″ X 5-3/4″ adhered to card front using clear double sided adhesive

Die cut is Spellbinders Nestabilities Candlewick Square Etched Dies cut from white cardstock. Susan’s Autumn Quotes Stamp Set was used for sentiment stamped in black ink before attaching to card. Dimensional tape was used to adhere die cut to card front.

Using brown cardstock cut 2 berry branches adhere 1 on top of other using liquid glue. Shade using brown ink. Die cut little flowers from yellow cardstock shaped using medium ball tool. Kids Choice Glue was used to adhere little flowers to berry branch. Using Ripened Pumpkin Nuvo Drops make bittersweet berries on branches set aside to dry.

Happy Fall Die D Lite set was used for the basket. Basket was cut twice once from dark brown cardstock and wood print cardstock with clear double sided adhesive on back. Adhered 2 pieces together using Kids Choice Glue.

Leaves were cut from white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. The smaller leaves were used for this card and I just did them randomly.

Basket was adhered to card front using Kids Choice Glue. I bent the basket with my fingers to give dimension before adhering. Once glue is set the bittersweet branch was added then the leaves were added using same glue.

Thanks for stopping by and my card has given you inspiration.

Until next time – Happy Crafting!

Family Hydrangeas


Hello My Crafty Friends,

Today I have another card for you that I created,  my inspiration actually being bouquet of dried hydrangeas that sits on my dresser in an old antique vase.  The hydrangeas are ones that grow across the front of my house they are called Bobo.  These hydrangeas have been on my dresser since I cut them last fall and one day as I looked at them my inspiration hit me.



Here is how it was created.

Step 1  Card base is 5″ X 7 – I used Tonic Studios Craft Perfect Ivory White Card Blanks.  These card blanks are very nice quality also com in white and other sizes.

Step 2  Cut colored cardstock 4-3/4″ X 6-3/4″ using Oval die set ( Susan’s Garden Notes Fitted Frame It used here) choose oval one size smaller than what you want for opening – die cut oval in cardstock keeping it close to top.    Cut Ivory cardstock 4-1/2″ X 6-1/2″  Using next size up oval die cut oval adhere ivory on top of colored using Clear Double Sided Adhesive then adhere to card front.  From ivory white cardstock  with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back cut 4 corners (ECD Corners 1 used here).  Adhere corners to card front.

Step 3  Using Suzanne Cannon – A Way With Words – Family die cut from black cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back.  Adhere to bottom center of card front.

Step 4  Vase was cut on Cricut from brown cardstock.  Cut twice adhere one on top of other using Tonic’s Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  Use basket weave embossing folder to emboss.  Metallic Rub-Ons Kit 2 – Nubian was rubbed over surface of vase to highlight.  Dimensional tape was used to mount to card (to make it fit oval bottom of vase was cut off).

Step 5  cut, color and shape and build hydrangeas.  Susan’s Garden Club Lacecap Hydrangea die set was used for little flowers but I cut oval shapes to use for base.  Adhere at top of vase.

Hope my card gives you an idea and look around for inspiration as I have done.

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