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.

Watering Can With Lupines

Watering Can with Lupines

Hello My Crafty Friends,

Well the day is finally here for new release of Susan’s Notes dies at Elizabeth Craft Designs and my card today and I am so excited to share with you my card using 2 of the new ones the Watering Can and the Lupine.  Was so excited over the watering can as I love the old ones and collect them.

Here is how I created my card.

Step 1  Create 5″ X 7″ card base from 110# white Soft Finish Cardstock.  Cut 85# white Soft Finish Cardstock 5″ X 7″ using next to largest Garden Notes Frame It – Stitched Oval cut oval in center.  Emboss  Add either patterned paper or a background you have made to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive making sure it is larger than the oval.  Adhere piece with oval cut out to card front.

Step 2  From white Soft Finish Cardstock which has Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back cut 2 Garden Notes Watering Cans.  Adhere 1 on top of the other.  Using alcohol markers color can then add Metallic Rub Ons.  Remove protective paper from back add a couple of pop dots center of the back then adhere to card front leaving top opening open.

Step 3  Using new Garden Notes Lupines cut 3 Lupines from white Soft Finish Cardstock or if you don’t like to color use color cardstock of your choice.  If cut from white cardstock color with alcohol markers shape using Susan’s Garden Notes Tool Kit.  Use Kids Choice Glue to build your flowers.

Step 4  Die cut 3-4 branches of Garden Notes Forsythia from white Soft Finish Cardstock to color with alcohol markers or from colored cardstock.  Again if cut from white cardstock color using alcohol markers, shape with Susan’s Tool Kit and build flowers using Kids Choice Glue.

NOTE:  For leaves and branches I use colored cardstock otherwise I use white Soft Finish Cardstock and color with Copic Markers.

Step 5  Using black in stamp sentiment on white Soft Finish Cardstock then die cut.  Ink edges.  Using dimensional tape adhere to card front.

Step 6  Using Kids Choice Glue add your flowers in top of watering can add leaves.
