Framed Mini Flowers

Good Saturday morning.  I am in a spring mood and wanted to create a flower project using my favorite flower color combination.  The flowers and inner frame was made using Susan’s Garden Patch 1 Inch Mini Daisy and Chrysanthemum.  The purple mat was made using the My Favorite Things Pierced Square Frames and the outer frame layer was made using Spellbinders Classic Squares.

The frames were cut and layered together with double stick tape.  I attached thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and then attached it to the card base.  I have to fess up that I had a hard time getting my frames to attach perfectly straight so the mats are a little crooked.

I cut nine sets of the three layered flower in purple and nine of the largest flower in green for the base of each flower. I placed all the flowers face down on the molding pad and rounded and formed them using a light rolling motion. Then I turned them over and pushed down on the center of each flower with the small ball end of the leaf tool. I assembled and attached all the flower sections together with glossy accent.  I used a 1/8” circle punch to punch out the tiny yellow flower centers, formed them with the stylus and attached them in the flower using glossy accents. The flowers were attached to the card base with glossy accents.

White on White Winter Scene

Good Sunday morning.  I have a white on white winter scene to share with you today made using the Impression Obsession Small Deer, Fir Trees, Fir Tree Border and framed using the Snowflake Background.  The top frame was cut using the Nesting Card Templates and the oval frame was made using Spellbinders Classic Ovals.

The snowflake background was cut and then I cut an oval opening in it for my scene.  I cut the oval frame and attached it with double stick tape.  I added snow layers to the back of the oval frame along with the back row of fir trees. The larger rectangle frame was attach to the snowflake background with double stick tape. Thin strips of mounting tape were attached to the back of both the rectangle and oval frames and then I attached it to the card base.

The deer and the front fir trees were attached to the scene with mounting tape .  It was hard for me to get good clear pictures that showed all the detail. I took a couple close-ups from both sides to show not only the detail but the dimension of the scene.

I love how this turned out.  There is something so calming to me about all white images against a soft blue background. I think the snowflake frame adds another pretty element of dimension.

Shabby and Tattered Santa

Good Monday morning.  Today I’m sharing another of my projects made for the Splitcoaststampers Dare To Get Dirty challenges. I love using designer paper as backgrounds on my cards but very rarely use it as a main focal point.  I thought the Santa image from the Graphic 45 Twas the Night Before Christmas and would be beautiful image to frame and highlight.  I paired it using Tattered Lace Christmas Florals and Impression Obsession Pine Pair. I must admit that I stepped way out of my comfort zone to make a shabby  and distressed project but I really like how all the coordinating papers from the pad work together.

I created the frame for Santa using Spellbinders Classic Circles and Classic Scallop Circles dies. I used my deckle scissors to distress the edges of both layers and then sponged with vintage photo distress ink and a mini applicator. I attached the green frame layer over the picture using thin strips of mounting tape to create dimension and then attached it to the red layer with ATG adhesive.

I formed the poinsettia and foliage using Susan’s Garden Tool Kit.  I assembled the poinsettia using glossy accents and then attached it to the frame layer with glossy accents.   Once the glue dried  I tucked the holly and pine pieces all around the poinsettia to create the floral spray.. I attached a tiny pearl in the flower center and finished by brushing Clear Wink of Stella over the poinsettia petals to add a touch of sparkle.  I guess sparkle doesn’t really go with shabby but I just couldn’t help myself. LOL!

Two Tutorials- Splitcoaststampers and the CLASSroom

Good Wednesday morning.  I have two different flower tutorials to share with you today.  My first was made for Splitcoaststampers showing how I work with rolled roses to create a more natural looking flower.  You can check out my step by step and video tutorial over at Splitcoaststampers on the Tutorial page.  I may have gone a little overboard with all those rolled roses but I couldn’t help myself.

Ornate Framed Roses

Good Saturday afternoon.  My project today was made for the Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge.  I was inspired by the Embossed Silver Vines Frame found here.  I instantly thought of the Impression Impression Ornate Rectangle Frame even though it is rectangle instead of square.  I love the fancy scroll work on both.  I attached the Ornate Frame to a double matted frame made using Classic Rectangles.  The roses and foliage were made using the Spiral Flowers Large and Leaf Cluster.

I cut the rectangle frames and attached them together with mounting tape.  I really like how separating the frames adds dimension and interest.  I attached the ornate frame to the double matted frame using rolled up double stick tape.  The completed frame was attached to the bard base with double stick tape.

The leaves were formed using my stylus and molding pad. I attached two leaf sections to each rose leaving one third of each free so I could attach the three together easily.  I wanted all the foliage to remain on the outer border of the roses.  I attached the flowers to the card base and tucked a couple leaf sections around the spray to fill in.  Here’s a closer view.

The purple outer frame was an afterthought.  I thought the card looked a little too plain with the only color being in the flowers and foliage.  After I attached the frame I was sorry that I added it as it is really to bold with the delicate frame.  But that which is stuck stays stuck.  LOL1
