With Sympathy Flame Lily

Sympathy Flame Lily

 

Hello my crafty friends – Welcome!

Still snow here in Maine so no outdoor gardening so I get to do more paper gardening which I love.  As I get older I am finding I enjoy the paper gardening more than outdoor as it is easier on my back.

My card today uses Susan’s new Garden Notes Flame Lily again along with great fillers Garden Notes Feverfew 1 and Maidenhair Fern.

Here is how card was created.

Step 1  From white  110# Soft Finish Cardstock form 6″ x 6″ card base.

Step 2  Cut patterned paper 5-3/4″ square ( ModaScrap Wood Effects used here).  Adhere to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step 3  Cut frame from green cardstock using 2 largest dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Hexagons.  Line dies up making sure they are even all around use removable tape to hold together while die cutting.  Using Clear Double Sided Adhesive adhere frame to card front 1/4″ down from top.

Step 4  From white Soft Finish Card cut 1 Stitched Hexagon using next to largest die.  Adhere in center of frame.

Step 5  Cut 4 branches of Garden Notes Feverfew 1 color shape and assemble.

Step 6  Cut 2 sets of Garden Notes Maidenhair Fern from green cardstock shade and shape.

Step 7  From white 110# Soft Finish Cardstock cut 3 Garden Notes Flame Lilies then cut leaves from green cardstock.  Color, shape and assemble.  Susan has great videos for creating her flowers on her Facebook page Susan’s Garden Club

Step 7 From white Soft Finish Cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back cut “With Sympathy” using Words 4 – Remember die set.  Adhere to bottom of card front.

Flame Lily Birthday

Flame Lily Birthday

Hello my crafty friends welcome to my blog!

Today I have a card I created using Susan’s new Garden Notes Flame Lily die set.  This is my first attempt will continue to work on them.

Here is how card was created.

Step 1  Create card base from 110# white Soft Finish Cardstock.  Mine is 5-7/8″ square instead of 6″ square as I wanted my embossing folder to work.

Step 2  Cut white Soft Finish Cardstock 5-7/8″ square then emboss.  I trimmed away the top part of embossed piece along curved line.  Although I don’t know the name of my embossing folder or the maker I did look on line and found that Joyful Home and Tatter Lace do make some similar ones.  Using Clear Double Sided Adhesive to attach embossed piece to card front.

Step 3  From 110# white Soft Finish Cardstock cut 3 Garden Notes Flame Lily cut leaves and stamen from green cardstock.  Using alcohol markers in colors of your choice color petals  (I have 2 red and yellow and 1 purple and green) then shape using Garden Notes All Metal 4 pc. Tool Kit.  Susan has how to videos on her Facebook page Susan’s Garden Club.

Step 4  From green cardstock cut set of Garden Notes Ladder Fern.   Shade with Distress Ink and pinch up on fronds to give dimension. I also cut set from fun foam and made my own stamps – cut 3 each and stacked them together.  I used glue as my foam did not have adhesive on back.  Using green ink I stamped a few ferns on upper top left of card front.

Step 5  Build your arrangement starting with ferns adhering with Kids Choice Glue.  Build lilies on card then add leaves.

Step 6  From black glitter paper w/ Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back die cut Suzanne Cannon’s  A Way With Words Small Happy Birthday.  Adhere to upper right of card.

Step 7  Add self adhesive pearls.
