Celebrate a summer birthday with the Delicate Fuchsia Trio and a bit of plaid.  Add a gold foil greeting tab and Bright Jewels - and your card is ready to send or share.  Hi, Jean here with a floral slimline design from our 2024 Fuchsia Collection.

Spritz both sides of watercolor paper with a light mist of water.  Pressure-emboss the smoother side with the new Delicate Fuchsia Trio - use the rubber embossing mat and plates required for your machine.  Diecut a stencil of the design from cardstock.  Place the stencil over the embossed design and stencil the petals with varying shades of violet ink.  Distress Oxide wilted violet and Radiant Neon Electric Purple were used here.  Stenciling over the embossed image leaves a narrow border uninked and defines the layers when the fuchsia is assembled.

Remove the stencil and sponge or brush Brilliance Victorian Violet onto the stamens - and Distress Oxide mowed lawn onto the remaining pieces.

Heat-set the inks.  Diecut all of the pieces.  Assemble the blossoms - refer to the envelope's illustration or scan the QR code for layering details.  Or mix and match the pieces like I did!

Cut the purple/violet/green Fuchsia Plaid with a portion of the 1-⅝" wide Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.  Cut the lavender 6x6 from the Lagoon Collection with the ⅞" wide die.

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½") - use foam tape for the leaf tips.  Add a Happy Birthday Foil Greetings White Circle Tab - use foam tape for the right side.

Add purple Bright Jewels.  Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Hope you're enjoying our Design Team's 2024 Fuchsia Collection ideas and inspiration.  Have a great weekend!

Let's start with the fuchsia. Spritz both sides of watercolor paper with a light mist of water.  Pressure-emboss it with Little Fuchsia Flower Trio & Branch.  Use the die to cut a stencil from medium-weight cardstock.  Sponge, daub or brush the embossed designs with Distress Oxides - mowed lawn, flamingo kitsch and picked raspberry - and Charming Pink VersaFine Clair.  Heat-set the inks.  Diecut it - leave the pieces in the die to keep them organized.  Assemble the blossoms.

Attach ScorTape over a light green sheet from the Greenery 6x6 Pack.  Cut it with the Hello Breezy Script background.  Cut the detailed top layer from a medium green sheet from the Greenery pack - keep the diecut in the die but remove the tiny pieces inside the e, l's and o.  Press the detailed greeting firmly onto the adhesive-covered background.  Cover it with detail clear embossing powder,  tap off the excess, then heat-emboss it.  It'll be securely-attached, with a glossy background and perfectly centered!

Cut the light green 6x6 with the 2-¼" wide A2 Rectangle Frames die.  Cut the rectangle with the 1-¾" wide A2 Rectangle Frames die to create a simple framed background.

Cut the green, pink and white Fuchsia Plaid sheet with the  2-¾" wide A2 Rectangle Frames die.

Cut the small Azure Dragonflies from a green Graceful Garden Glitter Pad 6x6.  Cut it again from the lime green Rainbow Reflections 6x6.  Attach the glittered wings to the mirror cardstock - it's easier to "sandwich" the wings between the 2 mirror cardstock diecuts.  Save the extra diecuts for another project.

Attach the diecuts to a white A6 card (4-½" x 6-¼") - use foam tape for the dragonfly wing tips.  Add green Bright Jewels.  Cut an A6-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".

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!

Fanciful, Whimsical Gladiola Wishes by Jean Okimoto

Fanciful Gladiola Stem's blossoms and Whimsical Gladiola's leaves create a floral birthday greeting for spring or summer celebrations.  Hi, Jean here with quick coloring technique for detailed designs.

P1033381

Save time by stenciling the pieces before diecutting them.  Spritz the smoother side of watercolor paper with a light mist of water. Pressure-emboss it using the rubber embossing mat and plates required for your machine.  Diecut a stencil from cardstock.

Tape the stencil over the embossed designs and sponge or brush the petals and stems.  VersaFine Clair Verdant and Cheerful and Brilliance Sunflower Yellow inks were used here.  Mask the adjacent areas with a Post-It note to separate the colors.  Heat-set the inks, then diecut all of the pieces.  Pre-embossing makes it easier to color the raised areas - and to align the die over the pieces for diecutting later.  Trust me!

Sponge or brush Verdant ink onto smooth white cardstock and cut two small and one large leaf set from the Whinsical Gladiola.

Assemble the Fanciful Gladiola Stem.  The green stem partially covers the yellow stem for instant buds and dimension.  I followed some portions of the diagram - and rearranged some pieces for more color variation.

Glue two pieces of smooth white cardstock together and diecut it with the 3-¼" Circle Basics die.  Cut it again - slightly offset - with the 3" Circle Basics die.  Attach both pieces - offset again - to a top-folded white A2 card.

Attach the Fanciful Gladiola Stem and Whimsical Gladiola leaves.  Add a Happy Birthday White Circle Greeting Tab and gold Treasure Chest Gemstones.  Cut an A2-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Thanks for visiting our blog...see you again in May!
