Hellebores in Tin

Hello my crafty friends welcome to my blog. I do hope that your start to 2020 has been going well.

Today I have a card that I created for a sweet friend’s birthday.

Step 1 Using Susan’s Garden Holly & Berries dies set cut stems from brown card stock then add berries using Nuvo Crystal Drops Berry Red set aside to dry then repeat on back side.

Step 2 Form card base by cutting white card stock 10″ X 7″ score at 5″ fold on score line card will be 5″ X 7″.

Step 3 Emboss card front

Step 4 Die cut oval from water color paper. Using Distress Oxide Sprays of your color choice add to oval. Spray with Nuvo Glitter Mist. Once dry adhere to card front using Nuvo Tape Runner.

Step 5 From white cardstock die cut 2 Susan’s Garden Helleoborus shade and shape. Shade and shape leaves.

Step 6 Die cut 2 Susan’sGarden Galvanized Bucket from gray cardstock which has double sided adhesive on back. Because I want more of cylinder shape I trimmed bucket down (I had a inspiration picture I was trying to replicate). Adhere one on top of other. Shade then emboss using folder that has vertical lines. Use couple dimensional squares on center bottom back of bucket. Adhere to bottom of oval on card front.

Step 7 Cut, shade and assemble Susan’s Garden Notes Queen Anne’s Lace.

Step 8 From brown cardstock using Tonic’s Verso Essentials Fallen Leaves die set cut 4 branches adhere 2 together using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

Step 8 Arrange flowers and branches in bucket adhering using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

Columbine on Stained Glass

Welcome my crafty friends,

Another card using Susan’s new release with Tonic.  Today I have featured the Columbine and one of my favorite perennials these are 2 of the colors I have.

Tonic’s 6″ X6″ white card base layered with green cardstock 5 – 3/4″ square.  White cardstock cut 5-1/2″ square the upper corner was cut using a die from my stash and bottom edge was cut with old Martha Stewart Punch.  Before adding to card front I cut a piece of white cardstock that was a little bit larger than the stained glass cut out.  Distress Oxide Sprays were used to color background then attached behind the cutout.  Add to card front.

Using the new Susan’s Garden Columbine die 5 flowers were cut from white cardstock then colored with Copic Markers.  They were shaped and put together using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. From green cardstock Japanese Painted Ferns were cut,color, shape adhere to right side of card front.  Add some berries (mine are old berry branches I had already made) add flowers.

This card could be used for any occasion just add sentiment of your choice.

Diamond Survivor

Diamond Survivor

Hello my crafty friends,

It has been a couple months since I last posted time has flown by.

As a lot of you know Susan Tierney Cockburn has joined Tonic Studios and yesterday they had a launch of her 1st release of her beautiful flower dies  under the Tonic Studios Logo on Create & Craft.   I am so excited to once again be a member of Susan’s Design Team I feel honored to represent her.

My post today features a few of those dies.

As you know October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and so my card was designed for a friend that is a breast cancer survivor.

My card is 6″ X 6″ I used Tonic’s card base.

Embellishment Mousse (Spring Green) was used along with their Stencil Twisting Circles to create background in center.

Pink cardstock was cut 5-3/4″ square and Diamond was cut in center.  Next white cardstock was cut 5-1/2 square and Diamond was cut in center of it using next larger size.  These were layered over the background on card front.

Japanese Painted Fern was cut from green cardstock Copic E09 was used to color stems and white PanPastels was used to give it the dusty look.  Using tweezers pinch up on fronds.  Using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive adhere ferns to right side of diamond opening.

Beauty Berry Bush die was cut from green cardstock berries added by using Nuvo Crystal Drops Autumn Red.  These were added over ferns using adhesive.

Using the Helleborus die cut out 3 flowers from white cardstock colored with Copic Marker, shaped and put together.  Add to the berries and ferns.

Stamped sentiment on white cardstock then layered onto pink cardstock.  Dimensional tape was used to attach.

While Susan is in UK she is filming YouTube videos on creating these beautiful flowers.

Eventually I will try to get back to typing tutorials for my cards but at this time I will just try to get cards posted.

I do hope that you have enjoyed my creation today and hope that you will check back often to see other creations.

Below I have linked products used if you click on a picture it will take you to their site where you can purchase.

Unfortunately Susan’s dies are only available from Create & Craft for the next 30 days then they will be available from Tonic.

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