Summer Blossoms

Summer Blossoms Card
I embossed the base layer twice with a fancy edge embossing folder by Crafters Companion, glued it onto the card base, then glued the edge and Glittered around the edge of card base.
I used Summer Blooms Die by Dies By Chloe, cut out the flowers several times using Fairy Garden Cardstock by CC.
 I colored the leaves with watercolor Tombow marker and then used spectrum noir sparkle pen in silver for a little shimmer on them.
I glued the flowers down in layers then and popped them up so it gave a more defined look.
I got clear rhinestones covered them in glue and glittered them, once dry I added them into the centers of the flowers.
I glued a piece of dotted velum to the center of the card then glued my flowers onto the center of the card on a slight angle.
I embellished with mini rhinestones, a thinking of you stamped sentiment and bakers twine with a rhinestone glued into the center.

Dragonfly Spring Card

Dragonflies are so dainty, but fierce in the face. I’ve photographed plenty of them, using macro lenses, so I’m familiar with their fierceness and true beauty.
On a card they can be so dainty and beautiful.

New Card and New Creativity

Today I made my first Valentines card for the holiday.
I'm really pleased how this little cutie turned out.
I have been busy trying to figure out some things with creating my own Backgrounds, Stencil SVG's and soon SVG's, its a lot of fun trying to learn new ways to add to your own stash by designing things yourself.
I will be adding a New Stencil and maybe some more backgrounds
for DL in the next few days :)

  • 1 x 110gsm White Cardstock - Staples Brand
  • 1 - 6 x 6 Patterned Paper - My Minds Eye, Lost & Found - Ruby
  • Flower and Leaf Dies - By Chloe
  • Lace Edged Die - Gemini
  • Sentiment Strip Die and With Love Stamp - Sarah Davies Signature Collection
  • Pearl Flower Embellishment for inside flowers
  • 1 - 6 x 6 Pearl Cream Cardstock - American Crafts
  • 1 - Green 6 x 6 Green Cardstock - DCWV
  • Pink Ribbon - Joann's
  • White Opal Liquid Pearls - Ranger
  • Dusty Rose Metallic Liquid Ink - Stampin Up
  • Rubbing Alcohol
  • Water Spritzer - Ranger
  • Adhesive Runner - Gina K
  • Liquid Glue Pen - Hero Arts
  • Foam Squares

How I Did It:
  1. I basically Spritzed the Cardstock with the metallic ink by putting a couple of drops and rubbing alcohol in a water spritzer, sprayed the Cardstock which I think gave it a marbled sheen effect, and then let it dry, while I put together the flowers and leaves.
  2. I cut the Ruby Paper into 2 triangles and layered them on the card and then inserted the Lace Edged die cut into the top of the V section, under the layered triangles, then glued the outside edges down.
  3. I placed my basic flowers inside the card barely popping out and glued them in, and then layered the other flowers and leaves on top of the mid section using foam squares.
  4. I placed crystal pearls on the corners to tie in with the middle of the flowers.
  5. To finish I placed the sentiment strip and bow in the corner of the card.
  • The flowers could have been slightly centered better.
  • the crystal pearl drops could have been slightly bigger or I could have used something else.

I actually think this card is a cute one, so I'm pretty happy with it and I hope my friend who I am giving it to for "Valentines Day" will like it to.

Enjoy and Happy Crafting.
