Spellbinders Release Blog Hop

Good Wednesday morning.  I’m excited to be participating in the new Spellbinders release blog hop and using wine die cut images from the new Wine Snippet set from the Wine Country Collection. To celebrate this release, Spellbinders is giving away a $50 gift certificate to a lucky winner. Please leave a comment on the Spellbinders blog by Sunday, April 22nd 11:59 pm EDT for a chance to win. The winner will be announced in the blog hop post on Spellbinders blog the following day. Winner is responsible for shipping cost, duties and taxes. 

You should have arrived here from Janette Kausen’s blog and your next stop along the hop will be Olga Direktorenko.

Wine die cuts are perfect to use for gift cards.

I began by applying versa to the Wine Snippets die cuts and embossing embossing with super fine gold embossing powder. I repeated the process a second time to get full coverage on the images. I attached the images to the the Fleur de Lis layers using Crafter’s Pick glue and then attached both layers to the card base using mounting tape.  I used square Matting Basics A and B sets to create the frames and attached them to the images using 1/8″ double stick tape.

Wine die cuts are perfect to make gift cards to accompany a gift of wine.

I think smaller 3 x 3 cards are perfect to use as a gift card when giving someone a bottle of wine.

Wine die cuts are perfect to use for cards and gift cards.

Thanks for coming by today.  I hope you enjoy seeing all the beautiful projects along the hop .  I’ve linked all the Wine Country wine die cuts and stamps collection below.  You can see all the new release new collections in the “New Arrival” pages.

Layering Colors with Die Cuts for Dimensional Flowers

I like layering colors with die cuts for dimensional flowers to create interest when using a solid piece die.  My project today was made using the Spellbinders Field of Poppies die that combines the flowers and foliage all on one piece.  I could have easily cut the die using white cardstock, colored with markers and used it as a single layer on my card.  But I really like to add as much dimension as possible to my projects so I chose to cut the piece in green and then cut the flower portion of the die with colored cardstock.  The frame was made using the Annabelle’s Trousseau Layering Frame

Color layering with die cuts to create dimensional flowers is fun and adds so much interest to a project.

Once I cut the flowers out in the three different colors I trimmed away all the connecting foliage pieces.  I formed the large flowers with my stylus and molding pad and then attached them over the green flower background using glossy accents. I offset each flower a little so the green would show up like a foliage base behind the flower.  I trimmed the green sections off the small flowers and attached the colored flowers over them.  I didn’t want the green to show behind them.  I finished the larger flowers by adding white Nuvo Crystal Drops right in the center.

Color layering with die cuts to create dimensional flowers is easy and adds so much interest to a project.

The main frame was attached to the card base using small pieces of mounting tape.  I cut a second frame section straight across the lower half of the frame to use in front of the flowers.  I added the decorative piece to the front frame section using Crafter’s Pick glue.  Crafter’s Pick is great to use for decorative pieces because it dries perfectly clear. I trimmed the bottom side portions off the green flower section so it couldn’t be seen behind the decorative openings of the frame.  I applied double stick tape to the back of the solid portion of the frame and attached the row of flowers.  I used large pieces of mounting tape on the back of the frame, lined it up over the back frame and attached it to the card base. 

Color layering with die cuts to create dimensional flowers adds so much interest to a project.

I wasn’t quite satisfied with how the row of flowers looked against the straight cut of the front frame.  I cut another green section, trimmed off the smaller flowers and foliage stems, attached the flowers with glossy accents and then tucked them in behind the frame allowing them to overlap to add a little softness and a more natural look.

Thank you for coming by today and I hope I have inspired you to add dimension to your solid piece dies. Cutting out the flowers was a little time consuming but layering colors with die cuts for dimensional flowers on a solid die makes it well worth the effort.

Gold Embossed Flower Cart with Decorative Frame

l had so much fun making this gold embossed garden cart with the decorative frame.  I used the Spellbinders Lavender Trike and Tallulah Frill Layering Frame.  Although the color referred to in the title of the trike die is lavender I couldn’t resist using pretty pink for my flowers against the all the white background.

A gold embossed flower cart with a decortive frame makes such a pretty card front.

I cut the whole trike image out one time using white cardstock and then cut the flower pot sections of the die multiple times so I could create more pots of flowers for my scene.  I cut the flower pot portion off the trike image, applied versa over the image and embossed with super fine gold embossing powder.  I applied a second coat of versa and embossing powder to create full smooth embossed coverage. 

Making a gold embossed flower cart with a decortive frame makes such a pretty card front and is not hard to make.

I colored the flower stems wit an Olive Grove Memento Marker and the flowers using an Angel Pink Memento Marker.  I applied Rusty Hinge ink to the flower pots using a mini applicator.  The flowers appeared a little too pale for my liking so I used a mini applicator to lightly apply touches of Worn Lipstick ink to add more depth of color.  I attached two flower pots to each basket on the trike so it would look full and overflowing with the flowers.  The pots were attached to the gold embossed baskets using small glue dots.

A gold embossed flower cart with a decortive frame makes such a pretty card front and is so much fun.

The decorative frame was attached to the card base using rolled up double stick tape. I used mounting tape and rolled up glue dots to attach the trike and flower baskets to the card base.  I added the small decorative element from the frame set in front of the trike wheels and tucked a few more pots of flowers in behind it with rolled up glue dots to finish.

Thank you so much for coming by today and I hope you have been inspired to try your hand at creating a gold embossed flower cart with a decorative frame.

Handmade Die Cut Paper Flowers and Delicate Frame Card

I enjoy creating a card  with handmade die cut paper flowers and a delicate decorative frame.  My project today was made using Becca Freeman’s Tallulah Frill Layering Frame Small set by Spellbinders along with Spellbinders Foliage and flowers made using the Succulent and Mum Flower set.  I thought the monochromatic cream paper would be perfect to create an elegant floral project. 

What fun to make a handmade die cut paper flowers and delicate frame card

I used my magnetic platform to secure the two frame dies in place so I could cut them both at the same time.  I used a layer of wax paper between the dies and cream cardstock to protect it from the dies leaving marks.  I ran the platform through one direction and turned it around and ran through the opposite direction.  I wanted to make sure I had a good cut since the dies are so intricate.  I turned both frames face down and attached them together using 1/8″ double stick tape. I removed the tape, applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the card base. 

Handmade die cut paper flowers and delicate frame card

I formed the flowers using a stylus and molding pad and attached the sections together using glossy accents.  The secret to creating dimensional flowers is using a good stylus and a fairly thick molding pad.  I sometimes use two pads together so the petals roll well with being pushed down with the stylus. I formed the foliage leaves gently with my fingers and attached the sections to the card base using glossy accents.  I added champagne pearls to the flower centers to finish.

I love making a handmade die cut paper flowers with a delicate frame card

Thank you so much for coming by today and I hope you are inspired to make your own handmade die cut paper flowers with an elegant decorative frame.

Handmade Paper Flowers with Die Cuts

Good Sunday morning.  Do you notice anything new about my blog?  I love the change!  How about you?  I thought it would be fun to make a homemade paper flower project using die cut flowers and a decorative die cut background for my first post.  I loved using my favorite red, green and white color combinations for my holiday cards but switching to my other favorite combination using purple, green and white is a welcome change.  I love to use this color combination for making spring and summer  handmade paper flowers with die cuts.  My project was made using the Spellbinders Annabelle’s Trousseau Layering Frame, Succulent and Mum Flower and Foliage sets.

I started by cutting the flowers, foliage and decorative background pieces using my Big Shot.  I attached the  decorative background to the card base using thin strips of mounting tape.  I used a few lightly placed dots of Crafter’s Pick Ultimate Glue to the back of the oval layer and attached to the white layer.

Learn how to make handmade paper flowers with die cuts

I used the larger and smaller stylus tips from my Garden Tool Kit  and molding pad to form my flowers and attached the flower layers together using glossy accents.  I gently formed the leaves with my fingers to add a natural appearance.  I attached two of the full leaf sections to the base using glossy accents and then attached the larger flower and two smaller flowers in place with glossy accents.  I cut a third leaf section apart and tucked it in behind the top of the larger flower to fill in to complete the arrangement.  I created white flower centers for the flowers using Tonic Nuvo White Gloss Crystal Drops.  To finish the project I applied several drops on a small piece of a Craft Sheet, allowed them to totally dry and then secured them in the flower centers with glossy accents.  

making handmade paper flowers with die cuts is so fun

Thank you for coming by today and for all the wonderful support you have given my blog posts this year.  I am looking forward to making lots of fun projects in the coming new year.  I hope each of you have a Happy and Health New Year.

Clean and Simple Rose Creations

Good Monday afternoon.  My project today was made for the Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple Challenge to create a card using an oval, navy blue and vellum.  Uh oh!  I totally finished my project, photographed it and realized I had forgotten to use vellum.  Duh!  I can’t post it for the challenge but I can post it on my blog.  I think the white flower and blue foliage look striking against the white frame and background.  Fast, simple and easy. I used the Spellbinders Floral Ovals for the decorative background, Rose Creations for my flower and Foliage for the leaves.

I cut the decorative oval layer and attached it to the card base using thin strips of mounting tape.  I cut the flowers, formed them with my stylus and molding pad and attached the layers together using glossy accents.

I attached the flower in place using glossy accents and then tucked the foliage under the petals and attached with glossy accents.  I used Nuvo Wedgewood Blue Crystal Drops in the flower center but got a little carried away and let the drop get too big.  Instead of it drying rounded like a pearl it spread out a little too much.  I still think it looks pretty and allows the flower center to match the blue foliage.
