Frame with Orchids

July 1, 2022

In the Friday Live show with Els there was a question if we have a Floral die where we can make an Orchid with, so this is where I came up with…………and I promised to do a step by step blogpost so here it is!

I used the Florals dies nr: Florals 4 Florals 12 florals 18 Florals 16

So this was the example I made and the next one with the frame we are making!

We are making a double frame and on top I combine the orchids with some other flowers.

Cut everything you see here and cut 5 of each flower and 4 of the stamens

Take the bigger flowers and cut 2 petals off so you have 2 left on the top and 1 on the bottom.

Take the light Green Ink and ink the big flowers in the center, put Yellow on the tiny ones in the center.

Color the stamens Green.

Put your tweezer on the bottom and fold the petal around it.

Shape these flowers on the back, then turn them and press in the center.

Take the tiny flower and fold the top 2 petals inside up and the bottom one to the back, put tiny orange dots on them.

Now glue all the 3 flowers on top of each other see the photo.

make all 5 of them and put some yellow flocking powder in the center.

Glue the stamens together.

Glue the flowers on the stamens and put those extra knops on there aswell.

For extra I cut these flowers and leaves out , colored them and they go on the frame as well, I didn’t do this step by step because the frames Els did so you can check her live videos to see how to make a frame and then you can decorate it.

So I hope you liked this step by step tutorial for the orchids.

I used the next dies:

Florals 4 – 12 – 18 – 16 – 19 – 15 – Boxframe – ferns – Leaves

Under The Sea

June 2, 2022

It’s me again, Els. It is already June and that means a new Month with new inspiration. This time I made a sea style card and below you will find the step by step instructions. I hope you have as much fun as I did making this card. Have fun creating!

Cut out the dies of white cardstock and the upper layers from silver cardstock. I didn’t used the fish and the binoculars.

Color the white cut-outs with Ink and glue the silver cardstock on top of them.

Cut a piece of white cardstock of 4″ x 8″ for a the card base and make a 21/4 inch hole in the center.

Glue the porthole over the hole on top the octopus with the helmet and below the shell and starfish.

Glue acetate behind the hole.

Put some rust paste on the porthole and the helmet and place some glossy accent drops on the acetate. Stamp some bubbles.

Put some glossy accent on the bubbles too and glue some prills down.

Stamp 2 Jellyfish on a light blue paper and stick it behind the porthole.

Take a piece of White Cardstock 41/4″ x 81/4″ and make a light construction where the Jelly fish are coming.

Then place the card back and adhere 3D foam behind that so the light has space enough.

Cut a fern and 5 flowers out of white cardstock and color them with Green and Blue ink, then shape them and put a blue stamen in the center hole.

Place the flowers as shown on the photo and then your card is finished! I hope you like the card and that you give it a try!

Spring is in the Air

April 1, 2022

Hi Everyone, It’s Els here and it is my turn again to give you some inspiration. I made a spring card, you can use it for many occasions. Below you will find the step by step instructions, I hope you will give this card a try………

This is the card I made for you today, I hope you like it so let’s make it…………………

Cut out 10 of the big flowers, 5 of the middle ones and 5 of the leaves and 1 fern.

Color them with Ink in the color you like, this is how I did it.

Spray the flowers lightly with water on the front and shape them with a shaping tool from the outside to the centre, then turn them and press in the centre.

Now Glue 2 of the flowers on top of eachother and place stamens in the centre.

For the background I used alcohol inks on Yupo paper.

Cut a base card at 81/2 – 81/2 and fold it in half, then take the background and cut it in 3 different sizes and glue them down with a little bit of space in between.

First put on some leave gold on the card, Color some Cheesecloth and place a piece on the card, then start to build your flower cluster, start with the fern and then first all the big flowers, later you fill it up with leaves and the other flowers.

Now place the leaves and the other flowers.

To Finish your card you can place a butterfly and some nuvodrops. I hope you will give this card a try, you can also use it for Birthdays, and Mothersday offcourse.

Welcome to your new home card

Cut Lacy Leaves, Florals 4, Ferns, and the Berry Branch out of the Soft Finish Cardstock, then colour them in soft pink and green Inks. Shape the flowers and leaves and glue the flowers together. Put some stamens in the centre and put laquer on the big knobs and pearl drops on the small Berry branch.

Cut a piece of Soft Finish Cardstock 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 and fold in half, this is your base card. Cut another piece of the same cardstock of 8 1/4 x 4 and put this piece on 3D foam blocks and place on top of your card. Cut the door with the die from the phone Booth set, use the parts from the window as bricks. Start with placing the leaves.

Place the flowers
Place some big knops
Ad some leaves

Cut the berry Branch apart and use them on different spots in the cluster. Use some green Ink to make a shadow on the bricks. Ad a string of pearls and bow and your card is done.
