Welcome my crafty friends,

It has been a long time since I posted and I am sorry but it just has been a crazy summer.  I do hope that you are all enjoying your summer.

I have worked on cards but just haven’t taken the time to post and unfortunately these cards do not have tutorials but I have links to the products I used so you just have to click on the picture and it will take you to the site.  If you have questions on how I did something please message me and I will gladly respond.

For those of you who don’t know Susan’s Garden has gone to Tonic Studios and she will have a new release of dies in September and she has asked me to be on her Design Team which I feel honored as well as excited and of course I accepted so be sure to keep checking back she has some great dies coming.

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


Watering Can with Calendula

Watering Can with CalendulaWelcome my crafty friends,

Today I have created another card using Susan’s new Garden Notes Watering Can and Garden Notes Calendula.  If you couldn’t tell I love watering cans the picture in circle is actually part of my collection that I have.

Here is how card was created.

Step 1  Form 6″ X 6″ card base using white 110# Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step 2  Cut white 90# Soft Finish Cardstock 5-3/4″ square.  Using 6th largest die from Garden Notes Frame It – Stitched Circles cut circle in cardstock approximately 1/4″ in from left side and 1/4″ down from top.

Step 3  Choose patterned paper, picture or use inks to make a back ground then cut using 7th largest circle die.  Using Clear Double Sided Adhesive adhere behind opening then adhere to card front.

Step 4  Using black ink stamp sentiment to lower left corner of card.

Step 5  Cut 2 Garden Notes Watering Can from cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back – 1 gray 1 white.  Adhere white over gray one.  Using alcohol markers color and shade.  Add silver Metallic Rub Ons to watering can.

Step 6  Cut 3 Garden Notes Calendula from white 90# Soft Finish Cardstock.  Using alcohol markers color and shade.  Using Susan’s 4 pc. All Metal Tool Kit and Molding Mat shape flowers.  Susan has a video on making these flowers you can find it here.   From green cardstock cut several leaves shade with distress ink.  Shape using leaf tool from tool kit along with leaf mat.

Step 7  Cut Garden Notes Ivy Vine from white Soft Finish Cardstock using green alcohol marker to color ivy leaving white around edges then shape.

Step 8  Remove protective paper from back of watering can add a couple pop dots lower center adhere to card front.  Add ivy vine using Kids Choice Glue.  Build flowers to watering can then add leaves.

Step 9  Add pearls upper left edge of circle.

Hope you have enjoyed my tutorial and it has inspired you.
