Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Today I have a super easy card to share with you using the Garden Notes Cosmos die set. I just love this set because the Cosmos flowers come in a wide range of colors. The splashes of color on your card is sure to brighten anyone’s day. Below are the steps to create your own Cosmos card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2 size)
Step 2 – Diecut Dotted Scallop Rectangles using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Attach Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheets on both sides of Fun Foam, remove the release sheets and adhere to card.
Step 3 – Add any watercolor markers onto an acrylic block. I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush colors Persian Blue and Light Green. Spray with water and place it on top of watercolor paper. Hold it in place for a few seconds and you have an instant watercolor background. Trim to 3 1/8″ x 4 1/8″. Adhere it to Black Cardstock trimmed to 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ using 3mm Clear Double Sided Tape. Adhere the panel to the card front.
Step 4 – Diecut Cosmos using White Soft Finish Cardstock and color in using any color medium of your choice. I used Tri-Blend Markers Bright Pink and Orange. Assemble and shape the flowers using the Susan’s Garden 4pcs All Metal Tool Set. Optional – add Pollen Yellow to the center of the flowers. Adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.
Step 5 – Stamp Banner Sentiments onto Black Cardstock using Versamark. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder and remove the excess. Heat set it using a heat tool.
Step 6 – Diecut Stitched Fishtail Banners using the sentiment created from Step 5. Adhere to card using foam tape.
This card can be used for many occasions by changing the colors, sentiment and background. Below is a link to all the products used.
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
Hi everyone! Here in Montreal, our first major storm has just been through, leaving us with a lovely blanket of snow. One of my daughters, although an adult, still gets excited at the thought of snowman building, so this card is for her. It combines my love of Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s CountryScapes with the Build a Snowman die set as well as her lovely Garden Notes – Whitepine Boughs and Pinecone and Garden Notes – Holiday Holly & Berries die sets. Silk Microfine Glitter adds the perfect sparkle to the snowman.
Angela here to share a birthday card with a fall theme. I had a lot of fun playing with Distress Oxide ink backgrounds the other day. One of them proved to be just right for this card. I have to admit to being particularly fond of fall colours and especially like a pop of purple, so of course Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s Asters were just what I needed to go with her Chrysanthemums. Some purple berries, and voila! Joset’s Dream stamps provided just the right sentiment.
Good day everyone, Angela Whelton here as guest designer. As we make our way to the middle of August, hard as that is to believe, I look forward to heading home and seeing my garden there. Among my favourites waiting for me are the beautiful Shasta daisies. They are such a classic summer garden flower. Susan’s Garden Notes Shasta Daisies are a lovely flower to make, and they make me happy. I’ve added Ivy and the Leafy Berry Branch against the Bricks die in the background.
Hey Friends! It’s EK here today sharing a little bit of paradise with you. As my weather outside heats up to uncomfortable levels, I just keep imaging myself somewhere tropical. To help push the fantasy a little further, I thought I would whip up a little card from paradise using the new Tropical Florals die set.
Hello everyone!! I’m Luciana, or LucyWonderland if you prefer ^-^
[English isn’t my first language so please forgive me every eventual mistake ^-^ ]
I’m really exited to be part of this team, and for my first post I would like to create something that pops up, just because I love things that pop up!I like playing with pages and cards, that pull, push, turn and fold, open and discover…and so on!
So I like creating a card with flowers that simply come out from the base. The Gathering Basket from the Garden Notes collection offered me the right soluction.
