Poppies for a Survivor

Welcome My Crafty Friends,

My card today is my second survivor card for Breast Cancer Awareness 2020. For this card I used Susan’s Oriental Poppy and Foliage & Ladybug sets from her Autumn Flora Collection along with Becca Feeken’s Adoria Square Shadowbox Frame set.

Card is 6″ X 6″ – cut white heavy cardstock 12″ X 6″ score at 6″ fold on score line. Cut pink cardstock 5-3/4″ square attach to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

From white cardstock I cut 3 largest dies from Adoria Square Shadowbox Frame set. Art Glitter Glue Dries Clear as well as Clear Double Sided Adhesive were used to adhere to front of card. From same set the smallest plain square die was used to cut pieces of white cardstock for the sentiment. Using black ink sentiment was stamped on square it was then adhered to card front center using dimensional dots.

Three Oriental Poppies plus 1 bud were cut from white cardstock and colored using RV21 Copic marker. Susan has a YouTube video for creating the poppies you can find it here.

Rosemary branches were cut from green cardstock shaded with green ink and shaped using leaf pad and tool. I made 6 stems. Using die for tiny flowers I cut it twice from white cardstock shaped with small ball tool.

Kids Choice Glue was used to build arrangement on card front starting with laying down Rosemary then adding Poppies and small white flowers. Final addition is the Ladybugs which I coated with Nuvo Crystal Glaze to make them shine.

Thanks for stopping by today I do hope I have inspired you to create.

Birthday Poppies

Hello My Crafty Friends,

I know it has been a while since I have posted but I have been busy creating cards for Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s new release with Spellbinders. Spellbinders Garden Club – Autumn Flora. Her fall release has 7 new die sets plus a new “Autumn Quotes” stamp set. The release will be in the hands of retailers on the 10th.

Today Susan’s Design Team are beginning to post our creations using the new release. Stay tuned to see our creations. The other designers are Selma Stevenson and you can see her tutorials on her blog selmasstampingcorner.blogspot.com and Karen Liddle’s tutorials on her blog cakescardsandcraftybits.blogspot.com

My card today is a birthday card that I created using the Oriental Poppy.

Here are the details

Step 1 Card base is 7- 1/2 X 5 tent fold created from black cardstock.

Step 2 Patterned paper was cut 7-1/4 X 5 attached to card front using clear double sided adhesive.

Step 3 Using Spellbinders Die of the Month – March 2019 Amazing Grace Paper Designer Die cut 1 from black cardstock. (I taped all pieces together to cut) I used liquid glue with fine tip to apply glue to back and attach to card front.

Step 4 Happy Birthday was cut from coordinating color cardstock with clear double sided adhesive on back using Spellbinders S2-082 Sentiment 1 die set. Attach to center of card front.

Step 5 From white cardstock using Autumn Flora – Oriental Poppy die set cut 3 poppies (the new dies have a number on dies pieces to tell you haw many of each to cut for a flower which is fantastic). Using alcohol markers in colors of your choice color petals (I used Copic YR02 and YR82) 2 little sun shapes were cut from black cardstock and little circles cut from green. Poppies were shaped and assembled. You will be able to watch Susan’s videos on YouTube soon for all her flowers in this release.

Step 6 From green cardstock cut 2 foliages pieces from Autumn Flora Foliage & Lady Bug die set. While cutting the green cardstock you can cut the leaves for the poppies from same cardstock. Shade and shape. I cut a few of the tiny flowers in the foliage set from white cardstock and used a green fine tip marker to make dot in center then shape. Added flowers to foliage using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 7 Using Kids Choice Glue attach foliage to card front then add poppies and their leaves.

Hope you have enjoyed my post and stay tuned for more to come. Be sure to visit the other designers blogs to see their wonderful creations I can tell you they will wow you.
