Lawn Fawn Leafy Tree and a Flower Garden

Good Sunday morning.  I have a fun spring scene card to share with you today made using the Lawn Fawn Leafy Tree Backdrop Portrait setting paired with the My Favorite Things Leafy Greenery, Elizabeth Craft Lilac and Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 4.  I love the whimsical tree and flowers with the green gingham paper from the My Favorite Things Tiny Check Paper Pack.

I cut the tree frame once using Kraft cardstock and again using Bazzill Lollipop. I applied Vintage Photo ink to the tree using a mini applicator and and then lightly drug the ink pad directly over the tree to add some texture. I cut the tree section off of the pink frame and trimmed the Kraft frame on all four sides to neatly fit behind the pink frame.  I applied double stick tape to the back of the pink frame and attached the tree frame to the back of it. I cut two sets of leaves and two or three sets of tiny flowers and leaf sections from the Lilac set.  I formed the leaves and the flowers using my stylus and molding pad and then attached them to the tree limbs using glossy accents. I cut two sections of ground using the stitched borders instead of the grass section that came with the tree set because I wanted them to fit across the whole scene.  The section in the back was cut on an up hill angle to add interest and attached directly on the gingham card base using ATG adhesive.  I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and tree and attached it to the card base.  The front grass border was attached to the front of the frame with ATG adhesive.

I cut several leaf stems from the Lilac set, formed them lightly with my stylus and molding pad and then attached the tiny flowers using glossy accents. I tucked the leaf stems and flowers in behind the grass sections attaching them with glossy accents. I cut a whole set of all the foliage in the Leafy Greenery set and tucked them in and around the flower stems. I added a few tiny butterflies from the Memory Box Butterfly Delights set to finish.  .

Impression Obsession “Think Pink” Challenge

Good Thursday morning and welcome to the Impression Obsession  “Think Pink” Challenge.   My project today was made using the Impression Obsession Floral Background, Branch, and Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames.  The green scalloped background layer was made using the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Rectangle Stackables.

The floral background was trimmed on all four sides to fit behind the scalloped frame and was attached to the frame using double stick tape. The frame and background were then attached to the green scalloped layer using thin strips of mounting tape.  I then applied strips of mounting tape to the green layer and attached it to the card base.  I cut a green strip of cardstock that fit right inside the pink framed border and attached with double stick tape. I used this strip as the base to secure the leaves and bow.

I cut two branch sections, cut them apart to use the individual leaves and lightly formed the leaves using my stylus and molding pad. I applied the base of leaves to the green layer using glossy accents and attached the multi loop bow using glue dots.  Once the bow was attached to the leaves I tucked a couple more in behind the bow to fill in the arrangement.

Heart of Hearts

Good Sunday morning.  Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I’ve created a clean and simple card using the Impression Obsession Heart of Hearts, Spiral Flowers Large, Foliage and the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Rectangle Stackables.  Red roses were always the most popular flower ordered from my mom’s flower shop for Valentine’s Day gifts. I thought the rolled roses and foliage would be the perfect embellishment for the simple die cut heart layer.

I cut the heart design out of the scalloped layer and attached it to the red layer using mounting tape.  I applied strips of mounting tape to the back of the red layer and attached it to the card base. I think the two levels of popped layers adds dimension and interest to this simple card layout.

I started rolling the spiral flowers around the tweezers from my Garden Tool Kit and securing them closed using glossy accents.  I rolled the outer petals  of the roses back using a pair of needle nose pliers to make them look more natural.  I cut the foliage to use with the roses. The larger foliage sections were cut apart to use to create the foliage base for the roses.  I attached the larger pieces of foliage to the heart layer with glossy accents and then attached the three roses with glossy accents.  Once the roses were secured I tucked several smaller pieces of foliage around to fill in the arrangement.  I used my snips to hand cut two thin curvy pieces of red cardstock to use as ribbon and tucked them in between the foliage and roses and attached with glossy accents.

You can check out my Rolled Rose Petal Tutorial you would like to see a few pictures of how I turn the petals back. I also have a  step by step photo tutorial and video over on Splitcoaststampers showing making a Rolled Flower from start to finish.

Thanks for coming by today and I hope you are having a great Sunday.  It’s cold and rainy here in Florida today so I plan to stay inside and play at my desk.

Hugs and Hearts

Good Sunday morning.  My project today is a fun scene made using the Essentials by Ellen All Inside Die Set and Stamp Set, Impression Obsession Leaves and Stems and Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables.  The patterned papers are from the Lawn Fawn Let’s Polka in the Meadow paper pack.

I stamped the bear with black versafine and sentiment with black versafine and embossed with clear embossing  powder.  I used the coordinating die to cut out the bear. I colored the bear with antique linen and vintage photo ink applied using a mini applicator.  I sponged tumbled glass on the white scalloped layer to create the sky background.  I cut the grass piece using the scalloped die and trimmed the top with deckle scissors and attached to the scalloped base with ATG adhesive. The scalloped layer was attached to the card base with strips of mounting tape.

The bear and sun were attached in the scene using mounting tape.  I punched out several hearts, attached them to the stems and tucked them in behind the grass and attached with glossy accents.  The hearts floating up in the sky were attached with mini glue dots.

Impression Obsession “Love Is In The Air” Challenge

Good Thursday morning and welcome to the Impression Obsession  “Love Is In The Air” Challenge. Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away so I thought I would make a traditional red and white card for Bob and me to send to my mother-in-law. I used the Love Border Word framed using the All-in-One Frames Rectangles 2, Foliage and Tiny Flowers.  The red scalloped layer was made using the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Rectangle Stackables.

I cut the frames and attached the two frames together using double stick tape and then attached the Love die to the back of the frame.  I applied strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached to the red scalloped and white layer. I applied strips of mounting tape to the back of the scalloped frame layer and attached to the card base.

I formed the flowers and foliage with my stylus and molding pad.  I cut the foliage pieces apart to create the small spray and attached them to the frame with glossy accents.  I cut small leaves off of a foliage piece and attached them with glossy accents in both of the top corners of the frame.  I attached the small flowers to the corners and larger arrangement to finish.
