Instructions

Other Products: Smooth white cardstock, Vellum, Archival ink Plum, Black, Coffee, Library Green, Leaf Green and Olive Green, Rock Candy Clear Crackle, paper cutter or Xacto knife, White Heat Embossing Powder, Versamark Ink, Heat gun. Different sized Styrofoam buds, Acrylic paints, double sided tape

Watch this video https://youtu.be/KOy_qNB9OAk to see how to shape the Classic Petunias.

Instructions: For Petunia flowers, stamp and cut the multiple images of various sizes and paint them using Colorbox Harvest and Berrylicious. Shape the flowers on Deluxe flower shaping kit. For shaping of flowers, check Emma Lou's video. All the flowers and leaves are dressed up with Crystal Clear. The tiniest flowers used on the card are from the Wildwood Cottage Collection. After shaping the flowers, I have added small wired pollen in the center with the glue that dries clear. For berries, I have used various sizes of styrofoam buds, painted them with acrylic paint and then added frosting powder using Distress rock candy clear crackle. Heat a little to get the desired look. 

For Butterflies, Stamp the images with Versamark on vellum, sprinkle white heat embossing powder, dust extras, and heat set using the heat tool. Cut the images with coordinating die. The flower pots, cart, and flower vase is stamped with black archival and then painted with Zig Clean Clear markers. Once all the elements are ready, choose a designer paper with bench image and cut it to 6" by 7 ". Neatly cut the bench image using Xacto knife and keep it aside. 

Now for the base of the card, cut white card stock measuring 6" by 7" and layer the bench pattern paper on it. Using double sided tape now layer already cut image exactly on the empty space. For the top and bottom lacy border, cut 2 strips of white cardstock, lightly distress it using Picked Raspberry. Cut one edge using Classic Border Basics Die, and add white fancy lace to it. Before adhering the white lace, don't forget to score the pink distressed panel each time at 1/8". Adhere the whole top panel first on another white card mat and then to ready top fold, measuring 6 1/2" by 7 1/2". Finally, add a sentiment cut out from the same paper collection to finish up the card.

Watch this video https://youtu.be/KOy_qNB9OAk to see how to shape the Classic Petunias.

Instructions: This tent fold card measures 6 1/8" x 6 1/8" (16.5 cm) when completed. Taking the white card-stock make the tent fold card base. Using the yellow card-stock cut a little smaller for the matting. Taking the green card-stock, cut this to 6" x 6 ". Find the pink background design paper in the Petunia paper collection, cut this a little smaller than the green card-stock. Taking the mask and the modelling paste, apply to the design paper. When the paste is dry ink the edges with the Mustard seed distress ink. Add a touch of green on the letters with the Thyme ink (green). Adhere all the layers to the card base with glue or tape, except the top layer. This is done with double dots or foam double-sided tape to give height. 

To make the three lanterns, use the white card stock and stamp with the gold embossing powder, make six. You will find the petunia basket stamp and die in the Classic Petunia Bouquet sets. When die cutting the image, cut a few extra for each basket so the lantern will become a chipboard when all the layers are adhered together. Adhere the fancy string to the back of the card front and to the placement of the top of the lantern. Adhere the lanterns in place with double dots and glue. 

Make the flowers and leaves by stamping with the black archival ink, die cutting then shaping. Color the flowers and leaves. Apply the Lettuce Entertain You prills to the flower centres. When dry adhere in place to the lanterns with the hot glue gun or the clear drying glue. The leaves are snipped so they become separate leaves then they are tucked in under the flowers and adhered in place with the hot glue gun or the clear drying glue. Taking the bling border trim so it can be laid across the join in the lantern. 

Taking once again the yellow and green card-stock, die cut the Aloha so this forms also a chipboard tittle. Adhere all the layers together then to the card front. Apply the crystal lacquer to the top layer to finish the card. Put aside to dry.

Instructions: I first create two folders by cutting papers from the collection and using my scor pal. Measuring 5.5 x 9.5" and scoring them in half, I cut papers in the collection to match the size and add to inside of the folders and add additional journal cards and photo mats to create about 15 pages worth. I put all papers together and use my crop o dile to punch holes so I can add some rings. I punched out tabs using the We R memory keepers tab punch and ink with dusty concord. 

I stamped and cut a set of the large petunias, and a set of the small petunias for the cover along with leaves. I stamped and cut the corner part from the Bouquet die, I colored all the leaves with mowed lawn and the flowers I used dusty concord. Following Emma Lou's video I created my petunias and added stamens. I used the frosting powder and crystal clear to detail my flowers. I colored the seam binding using the reinker and placing it in a bag to color it. I then heat set it to dry to the seam binding will wrinkle. I then cut a journal card for the cover to create a small flip; and I have flips throughout this mini Folio. Attach your album rings and add some ribbon.

Instructions: Inspiration and step by step pictures for this project comes from: Hot Off The Press 3D Frame Card Template and here

To make the basic frame card, cut one piece of white cardstock to measure 6″ x 8″ in size and a second piece, 12″ x 6″, folded in half down the center to create a 6″ square card blank. Take the 6″ x 8″ piece of card and place in front of you, with the longest side facing you, score the frame at 0.5″, 1″, 7″ and 7.5″ and fold along the score lines. To create the aperture in the center, measure 1″, 1.5″, 4.5″ and 5″ from the second score line on the left hand side and make a faint pencil mark. Turn the card around 90˚ and then measure again t 1″, 1.5″, 4.5″ and 5″ and mark with a pencil. Join up all the pencil marks to form a square and core along each of the solid lines. Cut diagonally from corner to corner of the scored square to create four triangular flaps in the center. Create a mountain fold, followed by a valley fold along each of the score lines to create your inset to your frame. Apply adhesive tape to each of the end tabs of the scored card. Mount the frame onto the front of your 6″ x 6″ card blank. Add adhesive to each of the four flaps on your frame and attach them to the blank card to form the box. Cut a piece of white card, approximately 4 1/4” square and place in the center of your frame card and you now have your basic frame card to decorate. Cut one classic border basic die and glue across the top of the frame card.

Stamp the petunias with the classic petunia bouquet cling stamp set. Cut the petunias out with the petunia bouquet out with the classic petunia bouquet die. Color the petunia bouquet with Stampin Up melon mambo and garden green ink with the dove blending pen. Apply designer dries clear adhesive and apply shell white microfine transparent glue to petunias. Punch a scallop oval from white cardstock and stamp with Stampin Up early espresso ink “Let’s Celebrate” from the small classic petunia cling stamp set. Attach the petunia bouquet with glue dots and glue the scallop oval to the bottom of the card. Attach pearls around the frame of the card.

Cut 2 pieces of white cardstock that are 0.75 x 5.5" and adhere these across the top and bottom of the strips you already places, again using 3D foam tape.

 I matted my photo in white and then green cardstock and adhered it to the layout using 3D foam squares. 

Stamp and die cut 2 sets of the Classic Rose leaves, 1 set of the smallest Classic Rose flowers, and 1 set of the medium Classic Rose flowers. I added colour to my leaves and flowers using ink and daubers. Shape your flowers and leaves. I added beads to the middles of all of the flowers using 3D Crystal Lacquer. Let dry. Using a glue pen, add glue to the tips of all of my petals, and then sprinkled them with glitter. I layered and assembled my flowers and added them to the layout using adhesive dots. Then I added the leaves. As usual I cut these leaves apart and adhered them separately.
