“Love” in a Mist

2017-11-25 Lovein mist1

Hello my crafty friends thank you for stopping by my blog today.   I know it is such a busy time for many and  appreciate your taking the time to visit today.  Wishing you all the happiest of Holidays!

Today I am posting a card I made for a special couple that just got married.  I have used a couple of Susan ‘s Garden new releases Love in a Mist along with Els van de Burgt Scalloped Hearts.  Just love this new Love in a Mist die it is so versatile it is a great addition to your die collection.

For card base cut White Soft Finish Cardstock 6″ X 11″ score at 5-1/2″ fold on score line.

Cut blue cardstock 5-1/4″ X 5-3/4″ adhere to card base using Clear Double Sided Adhesive

Using largest Scalloped Hearts Die cut 1 heart from White Soft Finish Cardstock.  Attach to card front using dimensional tape.

Cut 3 Love in a Mist flowers from either White Soft Finish Cardstock which would be colored with alcohol or blue cardstock shaded with PanPastels Set 2.  Shape and assemble using Susan’s 4 pc. Tool Kit along with molding and leaf mat and Kid’s Choice Glue.  Susan’s Garden Club on Facebook has some great videos which help create flowers.  Susan does a Live Tutorial weekly on this Facebook page.  She is taking a break but will be back in January but all tutorials she has done are still there.

Cut leaves and 3-4 Garden Notes Maiden Hair Ferns from green cardstock.  On leaves with fingers pinch up leaves a bit to give dimension.  On ferns lay on molding mat use medium ball tool from kit to give some shape.  Add a little shading using Distress Ink.

To cut Love add Clear Double Sided Adhesive to back of black cardstock use love die from Suzanne Cannon’s Baby Love die set.  Add to left side of heart.

Adhere ferns, flowers and leaves using Kids Choice Glue to right side of heart.

Hope you have enjoyed my post today and will create your own card.  Click on any of product pictures below to purchase takes you to Elizabeth Craft Designs site.

2017-11-17 Candlelove1Hello welcome to my blog thanks for stopping by.  Today I am posting a card that was created using some of Susan’s Garden new releases – Glass Hurricane & Candle, Love in the Mist and Ladder Fern.

Here is how card was created.

Card base – white Soft Finish Cardstock cut 7″ X 12″ score at 6″ fold on score line.

Cut another piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock 5-3/4″ X 6-3/4″.  Using Els van de Burgt Studio Stitched Ovals take largest die in set center on cardstock (tape down with temporary tape) die cut.  Emboss in a large embossing folder.

Cut patterned paper 5-5/8″ X 6-5/8″ adhere to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.  (Patterned paper used here was actually a picture I had taken of some old peeling wallpaper then printed on white Soft Finish Cardstock).

Adhere cardstock w/oval cutout over patterned paper using Clear Double Sided Adhesive applied just around outer edges.

Adhere Black/Silver Glitter Stickers around Edge of Cardstock.

From clear cardstock, mylar or clear plastic packaging cut Garden Notes Glass Hurricane (this one was cut from clear packaging as it is heavier).  Put a slight been in it.  (I used heat gun to warm plastic then immediately held it against a juice glass until cool).  Use alcohol marker (I used Copic W7) run it all around edge which will give it a bit of shadow so glass is more visible.

Cut candle and flame from off white cardstock color flame with markers then adhere to candle using Kids Choice Glue. Gently pinch candle to give it a bit of a curve.  Determine placement of candle and Glass Hurricane within oval (bottom of Glass Hurricane on this card was tucked down behind bottom of oval).  Adhere candle using Kids Choice Glue placed on very edge on lower half along with pop dots placed down center back of candle.  Next adhere Glass Hurricane, again using Kids Choice Glue just on edges of lower half.

From brown cardstock cut two Berry Branches using Els van de Burgt Studio Berry Branch Die.  Using white pearl pen add berries to front and back – set aside to dry.

From green cardstock cut two sets of ferns using Garden Notes Ladder Fern.  Using Distress Ink add some shading.  Lay right side up on Leaf Pad take leaf tool from Susan’s Garden Tool Set put vein line in each little leaf.  Using Kids Choice Glue Adhere to card front at bottom of oval.

Using Garden Notes Love in the Mist cut three flowers from either white Soft Finish Cardstock and color with markers or light blue cardstock shading with PanPastels Set 2.  Shape then build onto card using Kids Choice Glue.  Cut stamens and leaves from green cardstock shade and shape add  stamens to flower centers.  Susan has a video on her Facebook page Susan’s Garden Club showing how to create this flower.

Once Berry Branches are dry add to card using Kids Choice Glue.  Add leaves.

I do hope that this tutorial has been inspirational and you will create your own.
