Floral Bouquet Birthday Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  I have a card using the dies to create other images.  I wanted to create a bouquet of flowers and needed to create something to hold it.  I used the bird's nest to create a basket.  

461D5FB3-E2CB-4954-BB93-07BB37548731_1_201_a

Baskest:

Use the ink smooshing technique on heavy cream card stock to create a multi color paper.  I used Distress Oxide Antique Linen, Gathered Twiggs, and Scorched Timber.  Let the paper dry completely before die cutting using the Bird's Nest.  Die cut the nest 3 times.  Adhere the bottom layer to a dark brown card stock, putting the 3 die cuts in a column.  Trim around and under in some areas around the die cuts.  Adhere the next 2 layers on one top of each other.  

1A74A16A-127D-4949-86F4-335E9A6F6E4A

Bouquet:

Die cut several times,using a heavy white card stock, of the following dies; Clara Blooms, Leaf BunchesLayered Star Flowers (both flowers and leaves), and Birch Press Design Budding Twigs Contour Layers. For the bouquet ink blend using Oxide inks, with heavy to light inking to create variance in color. Colors used for the leaves and steams was Bundled Sage and Scorched Timber and flowers Squeezed Lemonade and Shaded Lilac.  Shape and adhere the flower die cuts together.Also die cut several of the branches from the Berry Branches and Leaves from Neenah Desert Storm card stock.  

Assembly

Die cut white card stock using the largest die from the Postage Rectangle Layers.  Ink blend using Oxide Dried Marigold all over back ground.  Add foam tape to back and adhere to a white A2 size card.  Add double sided tape runner to the back of the basket and arrange the flowers.  Add additional adhesive to secure the flowers.  Adhere to the front of the card.  Add any other leaves, branches, flowers to fill in any empty spots.  Adhere a Happy Birthday Greetings White Tab to the basket.

Holiday wishes of peace, love and joy from Memory Box to everyone celebrating today!  Hi, Jean here with a mix-and-match holiday greeting.  The ornament trio combines classic favorites, Christmas '23, and some extras from Poppystamps and Birch Press Design. 

The sweet Layered Hummingbird - with a few alterations and minimal layering - becomes a peace dove here.  He's perched on a Birch Press Design diecut that (I hope!) resembles a young olive branch.

Cut the Frilling Snowflake Ornament background from three shades of green cardstock.  Punch holes at the top and attach gold cord.  Curl the cord with the side of the flower burnishing tool or a bonefolder - follow the curve of the cord for best results.

Attach adhesive label paper or a sticker sheet to white wool-blend felt and cut the main section of Layered Hummingbird.  Cut the top of the head/beak section from orange cardstock.  Color the eye area with a black marker.  Attach it behind the felt diecut, then trim the long hummingbird's beak to resemble a dove's beak.  Cut two of the big wings from a white Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad sheet.  Trim the little point from one wing. Attach the wings.

Cut the branch - from the Birch Press Design Jovial Blooms and Leaves Contour Layers set - from darker green cardstock.

Cut the Poppystamps Heart Jumble hearts from the red Glitzy Glitter Pad sheet.

Cut the largest Alpine Snowflake from the white Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad sheet.

Glue two pieces of white cardstock together and diecut them with the 2" x 7" Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.

P1029102 2

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-⅝"  8-½") - use foam tape for the bird.  Stamp the greeting - from the Shining Star Clear Stamp Set - on lime green cardstock with Green Oasis VersaFine Clair.  Quickly heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.  Trim it with one end of the 1.1" x 6.1" Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die, then trim the excess with an edge of a larger die.

Attach the greeting with foam tape.  Add red Christmas Fairy Dewdrops.  Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Christmas Gift Tags
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  I enjoy making gift tags for the holiday season.  Having a smaller space to work with help with creativity for me.  There are a lot of smaller dies in this year release that are perfect sized for gift tags.  

375B4DCB-8FAF-4F5A-8698-6A2BB2CFD4A8

Tag Bas.

I used a trimmer that cuts at a 45 degree angle to create the base tag. The tag is 2 3/4" wide and 4 1/2" tall and then the upper corners are cut at a 45 degree angle.  Select and trim the front and back to the base size. I used white card stock to create the first one with the trimmer and then fussy cut the rest of the tags by using temporary tape to hold in place while cutting on the angle for the rest.  For the front panels I used the Poinsettia Garland pattern paper.  I chose papers with subtle backgrounds.  then ink blended the sides with a darker ink then the paper.  

0FF46B47-8AF8-46C6-9396-FEB9DAC43119

Focal points:

For the brown tags I used the Poinsettia Stem die and Vintage Lantern and die cut out of white card stock.  Ink blended the flower with Lumberjack Plaid and Ketch Flamingo.  The stem and leaves where Pealed Paint and Rustic Wilderness.  I did add a little Vintage Photo to darken up some areas of the leaves.  The center was Squeezed Lemon Aide and Mustard Seed.  The lantern was colored first with black then Gilded Foundry Wax.  Then it was too bright and toned it down with Antiqued Bronze Distress Crayon and rubbed in with my finger.  I then added some shading using a black Distess Crayon applying it with a damp paint brush.  The candle I used watercolor markers in a light yellow and orange for the flame and a tope and light olive green for the base.  

For the aqua tags I kept is simpler.  I used the Aurora Snowflake die cut in white card stock and left it as is.  For the last tag I used the Classic Pair of Ice Skates. Die cut from white and the blade out of silver from the Vintage Pastel Mirror pad.  I ink blended the boot portion with Fresh Ink Silicone Blue around the outside edge. The base I ink blended with Vintage Photo Distress ink.  I used a matching embroidery floss and a needle to thread up the skates and to hang from the top of the tag.  

D840B8AF-6E66-4895-83E7-3FAE87951A71

Assembly:

On the white backs I stamped To and From from the Birch Press Designs Glide Tidings clear stamp set.  I adhered the front to the back.  Then punched the hole in the center top. I added the focal points and a sentiment with the new Rose and White Greeting tabs.  Tied some gold ribbon through the hole.

Snowy Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone!  I have a snowflake card using a resist embossing technique.  

Snow normal

Stamp and heat emboss with an A2 size white panel and silver embossing powder using the Aurora Snowflake stamp.  Ink mush using Distress Oxide inks, Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, and Blueprint Sketch.  Make sure to heat set in between each color.  Start with the latest to the darkest.  Only add a little of the Blueprint Sketch color.  Wipe off any of the ink off the snowflakes when complete.  Take the Snow flurries stencils and use shimmer texture paste.  I have a very old Pearlesent paste from Dreamweaver.  There are similar products on the market.  

Snowday upclose

Trim down the inked panel at an angle at the top.  Adhere the snowy panel to a A2 size panel made from a matching color from the Stormy Blue paper pad.  Stamp and white heat emboss the LET IT SNOW sentiment from Birch Press Designs Glad Tidings stamp set, on the blue paper at the same angle.  Add a strip of silver paper from the Vintage Pastel Mirror pad. 

Snow with product

Flowers bloom and evolve throughout the season - so do diecuts!  The versatile boldly-beautiful Magnolia Floral Stem easily grows from bud to bloomer.  Flowers can sometimes look very different from their seed packet pictures - or their die envelopes.  Stems are longer, buds bloom and leaves grow in different directions.   Hi, Jean here sharing a few ideas to change the look of a spring magnolia as we welcome summer.

The original spring magnolia is shown on the envelope.  Here's our sunny yellow summer version.

Cut Magnolia Floral Stem from Open Studio Watercolor Paper.  Cut an extra stem.  Daub, sponge or brush the pieces with Sunflower Yellow Brilliance, Pearlescent Thyme Brilliance and Vintage Sepia VersaFine.  Trim and join the stem pieces where it'll be hidden by the bottom of the big leaf.

Tape the 2-¼", 1-¾" and 1-¼" wide A2 Rectangle Frames Dies to the dark green leaf print from the Magnolia Grove 6x6 pack and diecut them.  Leave them in the die and tape them together to create an inlaid background.

Cut the small dragonfly - from the Birch Press Design Simple Dragonfly Contour Layers set - from the gold Rainbow Reflections 6x6.  Assemble just the wings.  It's easier to attach the delicate body to the card, then glue the wings over it.

Attach the diecuts to a natural A6 card (6-¼" x 4-½") - use foam tape for the tips of the leaves and petals.  Attach the dragonfly wings.

Attach the coppery-gold Treasure Chest Fairy Gemstones.  Cut an A6-sized rectangle of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.
