Hello crafters! The Garden Notes flowers are a perfect decoration for creating cards or frames for a friend. This is Luciana today and I designed a card with a Garden Notes – Cosmos die set .
Here is the step-by-step tutorial:
Use a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock, 12 X 6 , folded in half to make a 6 X 6 card. Using some Clear Double-Sided Adhesive Tape, to adhere on the card a square 5 3/4 inches of watercolored White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Cut out two sets of the Garden Notes – Forsythia dies, from the White Soft Finish Cardstock. You will need two layers of only one of the two branches of the set.
Color all the pieces as showed below.
Use the smallest ball tool and the molding pad to add a curly on the inner part of the branches, and on each petal of the flower.
Use the Kids choice glue to adhere the two layers of the branch and all the flowers on it.
Cut out six sets of the Garden Notes – Cosmos dies, from the White Soft Finish Cardstock (except the stem).
Color all the pieces as shown below.
Use the loop tool and the molding pad to add a texture on all the petals.
Add a ripple on the paper, using the ball tool.
Wrap the pistils with the tweezers
Use the Kids choice glue to adhere the two layers of petals and the pieces of the pistils.
Add the vein to the leaves, using the leaf tool and the leaf pad. And then with the ball tool and the molding pad add more curving details. Use all the several leaves from different Garden Notes Sets.
Die cut the word “just” from the Die set – Words 2 – Thinking of You, and the word “happy” from the set A Way With Words, Happy Birthday 3, both in a White Soft Cardstock, and then color them with a brown color.
Use the Garden Notes – Frame It/ Stitched Circles set in the White Soft Cardstock, to create a frame for a your picture.
Arrange and adhere the flowers and leaves as shown below.

Hello crafters! Luciana is here today, showing you how to create a little paper bouquet that could be a perfect piece of decor for your home! You could even collect several tiny bouquets in a single vase and have a blossoming centerpiece –– perfect for Spring!
Here is the tutorial:
Step 1. Die cut from White Soft Finish Cardstock 1 set of Garden Notes – English Rose (except the stems and 2 times the leaves).
Step 2. Color them as shown below, adding a more deep color around the external edges of the petals
Step 3. Shape all the pieces for the corollas.
Use the loop tool and the mold pad to add some details to all the petal, making lines from the outside to the inside. Turn the pieces on the back side, and then use the ball tool and the mold pad on the upper part of the petals, creating a ripple on the paper.
Step 4. Prepare the rose.
Overlap the two pieces with the 3 petals, then start to add all the petals, from the larger to the smaller one. Wrap the last petal, the triangular one,
to create a sort of central bud. When the rose is ready and the glue very dry, put the flower on a florist stem wire.
Step 5. Prepare the leaves.
Add the vein to the leaves, using the leaf tool and the leaf pad. Then glue them on a florist stem wire. Glue also some green polystyrene balls on the stem wire, with a different length .
Step 6. Create the bouquet. Put together all the pieces and wrap the floral tape around the stems.
I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial! Thank you for stopping by.

It’s time for Sunday Stamping with Hedgehog Hollow again. I can’t believe it’s my last post of 2017. First of all, Merry Christmas. I hope you are planning lots of fun times over the festive period, however you celebrate it. I am of German heritage and I loved getting all my presents Christmas Eve. I let the girls open a small present Christmas Eve to keep the tradition alive, we have the rest of our presents Christmas Day – stockings when we first wake up and then we have Stollen Bread with Bucks Fizz and Prosecco, then a big round of presents before a big traditional British Christmas Day meal! We have the in-laws over this year and I love them both so much. We will have lots of good food, laughter and fun while we celebrate our first Christmas in our own home. I’m so excited!
