Hearts & Roses Birthday

2017-03-06-hearts-and-roses-2

Hello Everyone!  Today I am posting a birthday card I made for my niece using  one Susan’s Garden Notes newest dies Rose 3 and Els van de Burgt Studio Entwined Hearts.

Here is the tutorial so you can craft your own card.  Card is a 6″ X 6″ top fold but could also be done as a side fold – whichever you prefer.

  1.   Cut White Soft Finish Cardstock   6″ X 12″ score at 6″ fold on score line to form card base.
  2.   Cut patterned paper 5-3/4″ X 5-3/4″ adhere to front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
  3.   Cut 4 chains using Chains 1 die set and white Soft Finish Cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back.  Adhere to card front 1/4″ in from outer edge lining up ends at edges of patterned paper and watching corners to make sure they cross between links.  Do sides first then top and bottom.
  4.   Cut 4 of smallest hearts from Entwined Hearts die set using white Soft Finish Cardstock again with adhesive on the back.  Adhere to corners.
  5.   Cut 2 each of both sizes of Entwined Hearts from white Soft Finish Cardstock that has adhesive on the back.  Stack 2 largest together offsetting ever so slightly adding dimension.  Repeat for the smaller 2 hearts.  Adhere largest hearts on card front then add smaller ones on left side of larger hearts.
  6.   Using yellow cardstock (or color of your choice to match your patterned paper) and Susan’s Garden Notes Rose 3 cut enough petals to make 2 roses and 1 bud.  From darker green cardstock cut stems and leaves.  Shade and shape using Susan’s Garden 4 pc Tool Kit, Molding Mat and Leaf Pad.  For Help shading and shaping Susan’s video on rose 2 can be very helpful.  You can find video here
  7.   Cut 2 Moda Scrap Leafy Branch 5 from lighter green cardstock.   Add a little shading.  Lay branches face down on molding mat shape each leaf using small loop tool.  Turn over use tool on stems.  Adhere to right side of largest heart using Kids Choice Glue.  Adhere roses and leaves.
  8. Add sentiment (stickers, stamps or small die cuts can be used – stickers used here) to white cardstock in shape of your choice.  Adhere to left side of smaller heart using dimensional tape.

Hearts & Tulips

hearts-tulips-1-11917

Hello my crafty friends!  Today I am posting a card I made using one of eight of Susan’s new dies that have just been released.  Today I chose to use the Tulip 2 of this new group since we are all wishing for Spring about now.  Along with this new die  I used Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Shimmer Sheetz and Els van de Burgt Studio Heart Background die.  The picture does not show how pretty the Shimmer Sheetz looks it is really hard to take photos of it to do it justice.

Although I am using this card as a sympathy card it certainly could be used for a valentine or birthday card by changing the sentiment and put a whole heart on it.

Here is how this card was created.

Start with white card base 4-1/4″ X 5-1/2″

  1.  Die cut Raspberry Shimmer Metal Sheetz with Heart Background die making sure to use metal adapter plate to insure complete cutting.  This cut out will measure 4″ X 5-1/4″.  Cut White Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz 4″ X 5-1/4″ (it fits exactly behind heart background).  Using Kids Choice Glue attach heart background to white iridescent piece. ( I placed something heavy on top to hold it down until dry).
  2.   Cut 3 tulips using White Soft Finish 85# Cardstock (1 of 4 petal and 1 of 2 petal pieces for each tulip) .  Color 2 of them with pink PanPastels Kit 1 shade base and edge with Magenta PanPastel Kit 1.  Shade 1 with Bright Yellow Green PanPastel Kit 1 at the base of all petals.  Lay petals on molding mat right side up using large loop tool from Susan’s Garden Tool Kit shape petals by pulling loop tool down each petal from tip to center pushing down quite hard to make petals curl up.  Use medium ball tool push down in the center of both pieces cupping up.  Using Kids Choice Glue offset the 2 pieces and glue together.  Take the sun shaped piece cut from green cardstock place down on molding mat push down in center with med ball tool.  glue into center of petals.  Cut stamen from yellow cardstock roll up dip tips into glue then into black pollen.  Glue into center of tulip.
  3. Cut stems and leaves from green cardstock (I cut everything twice for each tulip).  Using green ink  (Crushed Olive Distress Ink used here) add shading to all leaves and 3 stems.  Lay face down on leaf pad  take leaf tool from Susan’s Garden Tool Kit put stem lines in 3 stems and all leaves. Turn leaves over adding vein lines on each side of stem line.   Gently fold back on stem line add Bright Yellow Green PanPastels.  Pinch leaves together hold face down on molding mat rub end with medium ball tool to curve back.  Take stem that has stem line in it glue on top of plain stem do this for 3 tulips.  Kids Choice Glue was used to glue stems together.
  4. Cut heart from White Soft Finish Cardstock using one of Els van de Burgt Studio’s new heart dies middle size would work best  ( At the time I did not have the heart dies so I took a chipboard heart from my stash traced around it and cut it out).  Cut heart with an Exacto knife with zig zag pattern.  Take right piece emboss using embossing folder of your choice  (Elizabeth Craft Designs Heart Strings Embossing folder used here).  Ink all edges on both pieces using a coordinating ink (Spun Sugar Distress Ink used here)
  5. Using pop dots attach heart to card front leave slight space between pieces of heart.
  6.   Add sentiment to left section of heart.  I used Peel Off Stickers for sentiment but you could also stamp it on which you would do before you attach heart to card.
  7. Add tulips to right of heart using Kids Choice Glue.  Add leaves and small bow.
