I have four cards to share today so I’ll dive right in!

So Thankful For You!

My first card features the new Simple Shapes Cover Die as a backdrop for blooms made with the Build-A-Flower Wild Rose stamp and die set.

To recreate this card:

  1. Stamp the outline layer of the bloom, leaves, and black and white filler greenery in Permanent Black ink
  2. Stamp the layers of the bloom’s petals in Buttercream, Chamomile, and Snapdragon, and the center in Limeade (then use a green marker to add some shading to the center)
  3. Stamp the layers of the leaves in Limeade, Lime, and Fresh Leaf
  4. Use the coordinating dies to cut out the images; set aside
  5. Stamp a sentiment in black ink and cut into a strip (this sentiment is from the Needlework Motif stamp set)
  6. Use a blending tool to blend Volcano Lake at the bottom left corner of a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel of white cardstock, concentrating the color at the bottom left and letting it fade to white at the top right
  7. Cut three panels of white cardstock using the Simple Shapes Cover Die; stack and adhere the layers together
  8. Assemble the card by adhering the layered cover die to the ink-blended panel, and then using glue, glue dots, and foam tape to adhere the leaves, bloom, and sentiment
  9. Adhere the card front to a card base

Celebrating You

My next card features the new Lovely Envelope die set against a textured white background made with the Mod Squares 3D embossing folder. This cute little envelope filled with blooms is so sweet!

To recreate this card:

  1. Use the Lovely Envelope die set to cut all the floral and envelope pieces; I used some autumn-y colors for the blooms, two different greens for the leafy stems, and two blues for the outside and lining of the envelope
  2. Heat emboss a sentiment (this one is from the Sentiment Strips 2 stamp set) using white embossing powder onto black cardstock
  3. Use the Mod Squares 3D embossing folder to emboss a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel of white cardstock, then trim 3/8″ off both the length and the width of the panel
  4. Assemble and adhered the blooms to the envelope
  5. Use foam tape to adhere the bloom-filled envelope to the embossed background
  6. Adhere the sentiment strip to the card front
  7. Use foam tape to adhere the card front to a card base

Thank You

My third card features the new Pop-Up Dahlia die with a bit of ink-blending.

To recreate this card:

  1. Use the Pop-Up Dahlia die to cut a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel of white cardstock
  2. Using small blending tools, to blend Coral Bliss ink onto the petals and Bamboo and Parrot inks onto the leaves; use scrap paper to separate the petals and leaves from the rest of the background to protect the background as you blend color onto the petals and leaves
  3. Stamp the sentiment (from the Tall Foliage stamp set) in black pigment ink
  4. Onto a separate piece of white cardstock, blend the same to green colors where the stem cut out will allow the color to peek through
  5. Trim 3/8″ of both the length and width of both panels
  6. Use foam tape to adhere the panels together
  7. Use Delicate Polka Dots washi tape to line the edges of an A2-sized card base
  8. Use foam tape to adhere the card front to the card base

Hello There

My last card today features the new Flowing Foliage die set against an ink-blended and sprayed background.

To recreate this card:

  1. Use masking paper to mask off the borders of a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel of white cardstock
  2. Blend Winter Lake ink over the exposed area using a large blending tool; concentrate the color towards the bottom of the panel and let it lighten towards the top
  3. Keeping the mask in place, spritz the panel with Dusk Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray, again concentrating the color towards the bottom; then repeat with Iridescent Shimmer Ink Spray
  4. While the panel is drying, use the dies to cut leafy branches from white cardstock; use a thin tape to hold the fallout pieces in place
  5. Heat emboss the sentiment (from the Sentiment Strips 2 stamp set) onto black cardstock; trim into a strip with the left end at cut at a diagonal
  6. When the sprayed panel is dry, remove the masking paper; then adhere the leaves using glue and foam tape for a variety of dimension, and overlapping the stems so that it appears to be a single leafy branch
  7. Use foam tape to adhere the sentiment
  8. Adhere the card front to a card base
