Happy Bouquet

Hello My Crafty Friends,

Today I have a card I created using  Susan’s Garden Club Columbine, Beauty Berry Bush and Garden Notes Love In A Mist along with Spellbinders Vintage Treasures by Becca Feeken.

Card base is 6″ X 6″ created from 110# Cardstock then embossed front.  The embossing folder was found on Amazon.

Background piece was from my stash and die cut with the frame lit in Vintage Treasures die set.

From white cardstock Vintage Treasures was die cut background was attached to back of main die cut using Kids Choice Glue.  Dimensional tape was used to adhere to card front.

Several Beauty Berry Bush were cut from green cardstock flowers cut from pink cardstock then shaped and assembled. three Columbine were cut from white cardstock shaped and assembled as well as one Love In A Mist cut from blue cardstock leaves from green cardstock.

Once flowers were where I wanted them they were attached using Kids Choice Glue.

Hope my card has inspired you to create.  Thanks for Stopping by.

REMINDER:  Susan has a brand new release coming out from Spellbinder late August early Fall new dies and tools – SO EXCITING!!!

Until next time – Happy Crafting!

Hello My Crafty Friends,

Cut Pearlescent Card – Ivory Sheen 5-3/4″ X 5-3/4″

Cut Luxury Embossed Card – Emerald Hessian 5-1/2″ X 5-1/2″

Using 3rd largest Eastern Oyster Die cut Ivory Sheen approximately 3/4″ down from top.

Using 2nd largest Eastern Oyster Die cut Emerald Hessian approximately 1/4″ down from top.

Using Nuvo Adhesive Tape to adhere Ivory Sheen to card front then Emerald Hessian on top of Ivory Sheen.

Cut 5 Columbine flowers from white cardstock color as you wish. Cut leaves from green cardstock. Shape and build your flowers.

Cut 5 sets of Brunnera florets from blue cardstock and leaves and stems from green cardstock. Shade and shape then build using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. Susan has tutorials on her Susan’s Garden Club Facebook page soon to have YouTube videos.

Add your sentiment to center of card before building your flowers on the card front. My card is a sympathy card but this card could be used for many things.

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.
