Floral It’s Your Birthday Mini Slimline Card

May 17, 2022

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. I just love the Daffodils dies and I wanted to see what other colors they come in. I was amazed there is quite a few. I came across the Riot Daffodil and it is the inspiration for my card. The Riot is a reddish pink center but I chose to do mine in a darker pink. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 7” x 6”, score at 3 1/2” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (Mini Slimline)

Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 3 1/4” x 5 3/4”. Apply Light Blue Ink to the top of the panel using a Blender Brush and fading out to about 3/4. Adhere to card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 3 – Diecut Daffodil using White Soft Finish if you will color in all the pieces. If not then use colored cardstock. I chose to color all my pieces in Copic Markers. I used a sticky mat to hold all the pieces including the negative while I colored. Assemble all and adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step 4 – Stamp Life Is Better On The Farm sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Diecut the sentiment using Diagonal Stitched Fishtails. Trim of the left side and adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

This card can be used for many occasions by changing the sentiment. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Sending Hugs & Kisses Mini Slimline Card

March 8, 2022

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. I have a card to share using the new Daffodils Dies. I made this card about 2 months ago and thought a sky background with the yellow Daffodils would pop them. Little did I know then what these 2 colors together represented. It saddens me deeply with what is happening in Ukraine. I am sending prayers for all of Ukraine along with the rest of the World. Be strong and Be Safe!

Below is the steps to create your own card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 7” x 6”, score at 3 1/2” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (Mini Slimline)

Step 2 – Diecut Fitted Oval using a Masking Sheet. Place the negative to the card front. Apply Ink of your choice using a Blender Brush in Hues of Blue starting with the lightest in the center and working out to darkest. The inks I used are water reactive so I splashed some water using a fan brush. You can skip this step. Remove the mask and let dry.

Step 3 – Diecut Daffodils using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Keep the pieces together and color in each piece using any color medium of your choice. I used Copics. See photos below so the colors I used. Assemble and adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step 4 – Diecut Sentiments 2 – Just Because (sending) using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Keep diecut inside and Stamp the coordinating sentiment (sending) using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Step 5 – Stamp Bear Hugs sentiment using Versamark on Black Cardstock. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder and remove the excess. Heat set it with a Heat Tool. Trim and adhere to card using Foam Tape.

This card can be used for many occasions by simply changing the sentiment. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Cardmaking Joset Designs Sidekick Essentials

Fun with Daffodils

February 25, 2022

Karen here today. Today, I am sharing a couple Sidekick sized scrapbook pages as well as a card. I decided to use one of Joset’s newest designs, the Daffodil, as embellishments on both.

First up today is a card I made using the Daffodils die. I cut the petals and stems from patterned cardstock and green cardstock respectively. Then I layered them up on a Stitched Hexagon. I cut another smaller sized hexagon out of the middle of it. This piece was layered up on a Stitched Rectangle die, cut from 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock, over a piece of the yellow patterned paper. The cardbase is also cut from 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. I added a sentiment, some diamond dots and some twine!

Next I chronicled a fun date my guy and I had to see the Eagles concert. I love the fun and funky paper and felt like the Daffodils just added more fun. I used Sidekick Essentials 19 as the page base and added a couple of Stitched Circle die cuts and a fun little pocket cut from dies in the Sidekick Essentials 14 set. I love the flower reinforcement found in the 19 set as well as the little squares that are found in one of the Reinforcement Variety Packs. The letters were cut from dies in the Planner Essentials 23 set.

On the back of the page, I added another Daffodil, some pictures and another Stitched Circle (as well as just a bit of journaling!)

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

A Way With Words

Daffodil Delight

January 4, 2016

Daffodil Delight 010416 1

Hello Everyone,

It’s Christine wishing you all a very Happy New Year! I am really excited about all the new dies being released soon for Susan’s Garden Club – so many to choose from. Today I have chosen the new Garden Notes Daffodil die and the new CountryScapes Garden Edges Daffodil set (these dies are coming soon) as they are one of my favorites flowers. Daffodils always brighten things up after a long winter; they always make me smile.

Let’s get started – Card base is 6″ X 6″

1. Cut 3 daffodils and stamen using yellow cardstock and the leaves and stems using green cardstock.

a. Using PanPastels Set 1 add a little orange shading to the inside of the daffodil and a light green to the stem and leaves.

b.  Place flower and petals face down on molding mat and shape with loop tool. Turn flower over, take medium ball tool and rub just the edges to curl them back.

c.  Shape petals using loop tool as well. Turn over, and using medium ball tool press in center to curve petals up.

d.  Each end of flower has a tab. Fold these in, add glue to one tab and place other tab on top shaping the flower. Glue flower to center of the 3 petals then glue to piece with 2 petals, offsetting the petals.

e.   Using PanPastels shade ends of stamen with orange. Using a dot clear-drying glue along bottom, leaving tab end free of glue. Using fine tip tweezers (from Susan’s Garden Club tool kit) roll up starting at tab end, hold for a few seconds and then remove tweezers. Fan out stamens. Dip ends into glue then into orange pollen. Dip bottom of stamens into glue and place into center of flower.

f.  Place stem and leaves face down on leaf pad. Using leaf tool put veins down center of stem and all leaves. Turn over using tweezers, pinch leaves upward, lay face down on molding pad and rub the very end with medium ball tool to give dimension.

2. Cut a piece of cardstock 5-3/4″ square (white can be used); cover the front side with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet. Remove protected covering and add Rust Silk Microfine Glitter. Polish with your fingertip.

3. Using Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape, add to front of card base.

4. Cut 4 corners from white cardstock using corner die from Tags & More 7 – Vines – attach to 4 corners of glittered paper using clear-drying glue.

5. Cut 4 CountryScapes Garden Edges Daffodil strips from white cardstock; fit around the edges between the corners (these will have to be cut down to fit). Attach using clear-drying glue.

6.  Attach flowers and leaves to the center.

7.  Using white cardstock covered with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the front, die cut Happy Birthday using Quietfire Design A Way With Words die. Remove protective coating and add Rust Silk Microfine Glitter. Polish with your fingertip.

8.  Add “Happy Birthday” to inside of card.
