Good morning! With our busy hectic lives right now we sometimes don’t have a lot of craft time BUT we really need some time spent crafting and making pretty (or masculine) things. So to fit into our busy schedules simple is GOOD!
To create this layout Step 1 – cover both sides of your paper with clear gesso ( I used Worn Wood paper pack) and allow to dry or heat with your gun
Step 2 – use your favorite ECD stencil and texture past on the right side top and left side bottom allow to dry or heat set (I used the Spring flower mandala) Step 3 – Using your watercolor palette, paint the images and allow the paint to run down the page and a couple of brush strips above where your photo will be – this create more visual interest, allow to dry or heat set Step 4 – stamp 2 images – I close to the right hand image and one above where your photo will be
Step 5 – using coordinating paper (I used the soft finish chocolate) die cut the elegant ornament, and the trio of leaves Step 6 – tear a piece of cardboard and mat your photo. Step 7 – adhere everything down and add your title
Hey Crafters! Katelyn here! It’s hard to believe that March is already here and Spring is only 12 days away. With Spring on my mind, I created this very spring-like Happy Birthday Card.
To create my card, I’ve used a variety of dies from Suzanne Cannon! To compliment the products from Suzanne Cannon, I’ve also used dies from Els van de Burgt Studio and Joset Designs. Read below as I have a tutorial for you on how to recreate my card.
Step One. Die cut a 4″ and a 3″ Stitched Rectangle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the rectangles using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Two. Choose two spring themed patterned papers. From the first paper, die cut 4 1/2″ Stitched Rectangle. From the second paper, die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Rectangle. Ink the edges of the papers using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Three. From a third piece of coordinating pattern paper, die cut the Flourished Frame out of it. Ink the edges of the frame using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Four. Die cut the Happy Birthday 3 die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Walnut Stain Distress Ink over the entire surface of the words.
Step Five. From the Trio of Leaves, choose two leaves. Die cut the two leaves out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Shabby Shutters Distress Ink over the entire surface of the leaves.
Step Six. Die cut the same two leaves out of another piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of the leaves.
Step Seven. Choose two of the Large Flowers from the Large Flower set. Choose two more coordinating patterned papers. Die cut the one large flower twice out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut the same large flower twice out of the other patterned paper. Die cut the second large flower twice out of the patterned paper you just used. Ink the edges of the flowers using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Eight. Choose two small flowers from the Small Flower Set. You’ll also need two of the patterned papers you’ve already used. Die cut one of the flowers twice out of patterned paper. Die cut the other flower out of the other patterned paper. Ink the edges of the flowers using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Nine. Die cut the centers from the Small Flowers out of one of the patterned papers. Ink the edges of the centers using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Ten. Adhere the 4″ rectangle to the 4 1/2″ rectangle. Adhere the 3″ rectangle to the 3 1/2″ rectangle. Foam square the 3 1/2″ rectangle to the 4″ rectangle.
Step Eleven. Adhere the flourished frame to the 3 1/2″ rectangle. Adhere the Happy Birthday sentiment to the 3″ rectangle as desired.
Step Twelve. Adhere the flowers as desired. Each flower will need two large flowers, one small flower and a center.
Step Thirteen. Trim one of the light green and one of the dark green leaves as desired for the bottom right corner of the card front. Adhere the two trimmed leaves together. Adhere the leaves in the bottom right hand corner of the card front. Adhere one large flower over top of the leaves.
Step Fourteen. Trim the remaining leaves as desired for the top left corner of the card front. Adhere the two trimmed leaves together. Adhere the leaves in the top left hand corner of the card front. Adhere the two large flower over top of the leaves.
Step Fifteen. Cut a card base out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 5 3/4″ x 9″, score at 4 1/2″. Adhere the card front to the card base.
Thank you for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Happy Birthday Card.

Hi Everyone! Marilyn here with a card I made using the Stitched Hexagon, Trio of Leaves and Words 2 die sets. You could use any sentiment for this card so it is versatile and would work for many different occasions. Please forgive the glare in some of the photos – I recently purchased a glass mat and didn’t realize how badly the light reflected until I was watermarking the photos.
This tutorial is devoted to sweet treats and parties. And, yes. I ate all three fancy store-bought cupcakes after finishing the photos…one a day to prove myself capable of a modicum of self-restraint (I live near Georgetown Cupcake so I splurged), but I resisted the urge to bake or buy a cake on which to show the cake topper!
This project has many other options. Several are listed at the end of the instructions.

For today’s tutorial I’m skipping the April showers and heading straight to the May flowers. Shimmer Sheetz flowers, that is… Though I’ve planted them on bright and happy cards, these blooms are waterproof so you could pop them onto a potted plant, string them as a garland to hang at an outdoor party, or with a few minor tweaks use them to decorate napkin rings, tennis shoes or flip flops, hair bows and all sorts of accessories and other projects!
