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!

Welcome My Crafty Friends so glad you have stopped by.

Today my post is a card I created using Susan’s Garden Notes Lilies 2 die set.  I had seen a picture of pink lilies and they were so pretty I had to try to create in paper.  Here is my inspiration  49603635_889506088078290_3650426209633828864_n  hope I did it justice..

Here is how I created my card.

Step 1  From brown cardstock cut 4 Garden Notes Berry Branch   2 with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back adhere to 2 without adhesive.  Using Distress Ink shade branches.  Use Nuvo Crystal Drops – Autumn Red to add berries then set aside to dry once dry add berries to back side again set aside to dry.

Step 2  Form card base 5″ X 7″

Step 3   Pick background for card it should be 4-3/4″ X 6-3/4″ what was used here was piece that was done with Distress Inks.

Step 4  Cut 85# white Soft Finish Cardstock 5″ X 7″.  Using Garden Notes Frame It – Rectangles -next to the largest die cut frame in cardstock placing it so there is an even frame on sides and top leaving wider area at bottom.

Step 5  adhere frame over background paper using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.  Adhere frame to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step 6  Cut 2 Garden Notes Trevi Urns from clear cardstock which has Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back.  Using blue alcohol marker color front of one to make it look like water.  Adhere other urn over colored one.  Remove release sheet from back add couple of dimensional dots to center back of urn then adhere to card inside frame.   NOTE:  leave urn top opening free of adhesive so to put stems down into urn.

Step 7  Die cut 7 Garden Notes Lilies 2 from 100# white Soft Finish Cardstock.  Color using alcohol markers – Copics RV02, RV04 and Y15 used here.  Cut leaves from green cardstock shade with Distress ink..  Using Garden Notes All Steel 4 pc.
