Budding Gladiola Birthday Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  This card colors were inspired by paper in the Glimmering Gladiola paper pad.  The orange, pinks, and red are so pretty togetherI had to recreate it in the Gladiola flower die cuts.

CC9FC81F-5207-4DBB-8CFE-05A2B4C20108

Frame:

Trim the orange, pink and red Glimmering Gladiola paper to 4 1/3" x 6".  Use the largest Double Stitch Rectangle Cut Out to create the frame.  Adhere foam tape to the back side.

Flowers:

Die cut the Budding Gladiola Stem twice and Whimsical Gladiola once from heavy weight card stock.  Ink blend the flowers using Distress Oxide Ink in Dried Marigold, Worn Lipstick and Seedless Preserves to create the colors in the paper.  The Steams and leave are Old Paper and Rustic Wilderness.  Adhere the flower and leaves using the image on the envelopes.

Butterflies:

Die cut the Exquisite Butterflies from heavy white card stock and ink blend with Distress Oxide Dried Marigold and Rusty Hinge.  Use a black permanent nent marker along the outer edges of the butterflies then lightly ink blend with VersaFine Clair Nocturne. 

Assembly:

Trim white card stock to 6" by 9 1/2".  Score at 4 3/4" to create a card base.  Trim the dark red paper from the Blush paper pad to 4 3/4" x 6".  Adhere to the from of the card.  Adhere the frame.  Adhere the leaves and steams to the left side of the card.  Add the butterflies on top of the arrangement.  Adhere a Happy Birthday Foil Greeting Black Tab to the bottom right corner.  Add small drops of Sunlit Gold Glitter Glue to the flowers.

Here's another hybrid floral idea...Gladiola Floral Duo on a tall Daisy Blossom Stem.  It's just one of many combinations of blossoms, buds, stems and leaves from our floral collection of dies.  Hi, Jean here with a soft blue floral thank you card.

Budding Gladiola Stem Happy Birthday
by Anne Thompson

I needed a quick birthday card today and I hadn't yet used the BUDDING GLADIOLA STEM 94792, so...

IMG_3179 (1)

I started with a white A2 side-fold note card.  I trimmed a piece of card stock from the BLUSH COLLECTION SP1012 to 4 X 5 1/4 and added that to the front of the card.

I had this piece of plaid from the GLADIOLA PLAID PP1027 pad left over from last week's card and it fit perfectly to use as an accent panel.

I die cut the BUDDING GLADIOLA STEM 94792 with a scrap of yellow card stock from the SUNRISE COLLECTION SP1013.  I also cut it from one of the greens in the GREENERY COLLECTION SP1011. 

I added some Hero Arts Fresh Peach ink to the blossom areas and then assembled the flower.  For some extra dimension I glued the yellow stem on top of the green one and then added the small green pieces at the base of each blossom.  

I glued the stem to the plaid paper on the card front and then glued on the tall leaves.

I added one of the ST010 HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOIL GREETINGS WHITE CIRCLE TABS at the base of the flower stem using a dimensional foam dot.  For a little extra glitz I placed three of the TREASURE CHEST FAIRY GEMSTONES GEM101 in the upper right.

IMG_3176 (1)

If I were to make this card again I'd probably color the yellow stem green.  Or I could use the green stem I cut out and snip the yellow blossoms from the yellow stem to glue in place on the green one.  And I think I'd use two shades of green for the tall leaves.  Things to think about--I don't always have a definite plan in mind when I start to make a card.  Think this might be the last birthday card I need for the month of May.  Thank you cards next???

Happy Crafting!

Create Wildflowers from Gladiola Petals by Jean Okimoto

P1033598

Send heartfelt hugs with blossoms on a plaid slimline - they're wildflowers created with Fanciful Gladiola Stem petals and Lavender Bouquet sprigs. Hi, Jean here - mixing and matching designs from the Memory Box floral collection to create hybrid blossoms for spring projects.

P1033624

Cut petals from the Fanciful Gladiola Stem set from a peach Blush Collection 6x6.  Randomly layer the diecuts to create 7 blossoms - I didn't use all of the pieces.  Cut Lavender Bouquet from a light green 6x6 in the Greenery Collection.  

Cut a dark green Anemone Plaid 6x6 with part of the 2" wide Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.  Cut a dark green 6x6 from the Greenery Collection with part of the 1-⅛" wide Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.

P1033602

Attach the rectangles to a white slimline card (3-½" x 8-½").  Attach the bottoms and (approximate) centers of the Lavender Bouquet stems.  Attach the blossoms, then trim the stems so they'll cover the bottom of the blossoms.  Glue the trimmed stems over the blossoms.  

Attach ScorTape over white cardstock and cut the Hugs Tender Script background.  Cut the detailed "hugs" from a Greenery 6x6. Leave the diecut in the die and remove the inner offcuts from the h and g.  Flip the diecut (still in the die) onto the adhesive-covered white background and press it firmly to attach it and release it from the die.  Cover the exposed adhesive with detail clear embossing powder, tap off the excess and heat-emboss it to attach the top layer and create a glossy background.

Attach the greeting and pale peach/orange Autumn Fairy Jewels.  Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.  

Thanks for visiting...have a great weekend!

Fanciful Gladiola Stem Card
by Angie Cimbalo

 

Main 1080

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with a card featuring the new Fanciful Gladiola Stem (94791).  This is a great die for layering and it cuts all in one pass.  There are 3 larger stems, one can be cut or colored from greens for the stems, etc. and the others can be cut from flower colors or colored in the way you like it.  Here's a close up of my card:

Close 1 1080

The lighter purple pieces are small and glued together.  To figure out where they all go, I suggest you use the front of the packaging photo as it is "to size" meaning the pieces will match like a puzzle if you lay them down on the photo.  Here's an even closer look:

Super close 1080

I colored the background larger stem with the darkest purple, the large stem with green and then medium piece with mid purple color, then the smallest pieces with my lightest purple marker.  After I glued them together, I added some color pencil in the line and toward the bottom of the stems and blooms.  I cut the paper from "Glimmering Gladiola" paper pack PP1028 on a diagonal so the gladiolas were straight up and down.  (The paper has them at a diagonal which is also gorgeous to use that way for a background!)  The sentiment was stamped in purple and black inks and it's from the "Cheerful Floral" clear stamp and die set CL5278.  

Here's one last look at my card:

I hope you like my card for today!  I had a lot of fun putting it together and hope it inspires you to create some floral cards!  Chack out the whole recent releases from Memory Box - such gorgeous products.  If you'd like links and more information, check out my blog post HERE.

Blooming Anemone Slimline by Jean Okimoto

P1033504

Combine the Blooming Anemone with a Poppystamps frame background on a floral thank you card.  Hi, Jean here with a slimline  for any occasion.  A basic design and just a few colors make it easy to re-create and personalize this for anyone who deserves a special thank you.

P1033520

Cut Blooming Anemone from a bright red 6x6 in the Blush Collection.  Color the stem and sepal with a black marker.  Cut the largest petal again.  Cut an extra set of petals from Black Glossy Paper (cardstock) to create leaves.  Cut the pointy stamens twice from Black Glossy Paper.

Cut about 1-½" of the Poppystamps Circling Frame from the bright red 6x6.  Cut black cardstock with the 7-¼" x 2" Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.  Cut Kraft Woodgrain Paper with the 1-¼" wide Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.

Cut a pearlescent moon from the white Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad 6x6 with the 1-¼" Circle Basics die.

P1033530

Attach the diecuts to a woodgrain kraft slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½") - use foam tape for the tips of petals which are now leaves.

Add a simple thank you from the Thank You Foil Greetings Tabs.  

Cut a piece of the gold Rainbow Reflections 6x6 with a portion of the Circling Frame to create shiny gold accent confetti.   Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Kindness Card
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_8430

Hello everyone!  Today's card features stamps and stencils from the Spring Cheer release.

I started by die cutting the Vintage Tray Die from Gina K Designs masking magic paper.  I placed the mask on a white cardstock panel, and used a blending brush to apply light blue ink around the edges of the blocks.  This creates a nice shadow around the blocks.

IMG_8428

I left the mask in place and stamped the Cheerful Flower with black ink.  I used a heat tool to dry the image before using the coordinating layering stencils to add color to the stamped image. I used dye inks and blending brushes for the coloring.  I followed the steps on the stencil guide to add color to the stamped image.

To add some texture to the panel, I inked the back side of the Altenew Grip Mat with white ink and stamped it across my panel.  

Next, I spattered the background with white and gold inks.  Once the inks were dry, I removed the mask from the paper. I trimmed it and glued it to a thin black cardstock mat.  This was glued to a pink cardstock mat and then adhered to a white card base.

I stamped and die cut the word kindness from white cardstock and glued it to the card.  Underneath the word I stamped the words "changes everything".

IMG_8429

To finish the card I added some Fairy Drops for more texture, and that's it!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Need a celebration card for spring and summer birthdays?  Hi, Jean here with a basic design that would work in many color combinations with prints from our Glimmering Gladiola 6x6 pack.  Here's a purple version of my hybrid card combining dies from our floral collection - Clara Blooms on the Curved Magnolia Branch.

Cut Curved Magnolia Branch from a bright green 6x6 in the Greenery Collection.  Color the stem with a brown marker.

Cut Clara Blooms from a medium-purple 6x6 in the Twilight Purple Collection.  Cut an extra set of the small petals and trim 2 of them to create a bud.  Cut the group of 4 smaller centers from the chartreuse Rainbow Reflections 6x6.  Assemble the 2 larger flowers.

Cut the purple and gold petal print from the Shimmering Gladiola 6x6 with a portion of the 2" wide Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.  It'll be shorter than the die - but it's easier than measuring.  Cut lavender cardstock with the 1-½" wide Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.  Trim the rectangles with a corner rounding punch.

Cut, score and fold a lavender slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½") and round the corners.
