Instructions: Create a 5" x 7" card base from white card stock. Locate the layout page with the scroll and lilac cluster within the Lush Lilac Paper Collection, as well as the designer paper with purple brocade style background. Cut the scroll image section to be just slightly smaller than your card base and die cut decorative edge using the Fleur Border Basics Die and your die cutting machine.

Next, die cut the coordinating eyelet border from the Fleur Borders Basics Die from white card stock using your die cutting machine. Using a sponge or Q tip, spread some dries clear adhesive over the eyelet border and sprinkle with the Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter. Adhere to back of matting piece with decorative edge/scroll image. Now cut and add the section of purple decorative paper to the back of the mat making sure that when they are adhered together they will measure just slightly smaller than your card base. Ink all edges of the card front panel you've just created with ColorBox Wisteria Ink. Adhere card front to card base.

Using the oval die cuts, create a frame using the eyelet oval and oval the next size down. Next, continue with the oval dies and cut another frame one size down from the eyelet oval using your die cutting machine and a piece of coordinating decorative paper. Ink the inside edge of the decorative paper frame with ColorBox Wisteria Ink. Adhere frames together, and using a sponge or Q tip add Designer Dries Clear Glue to outer white frame and sprinkle with Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter.

Locate the premade card panel with the bird image as shown. Using the two sets of Eyelet Oval & Basics dies, die cut the bird image from the card panel so it will fit behind the oval frame you have created. Ink all edges of the oval with ColorBox Wisteria Ink. Using VersaFine Black Ink, stamp sentiment onto oval bird panel. Using pop dots, adhere bird panel to back of frame. Adhere frame to card front as shown.

Next stamp two inkings of the smallest lilac cluster from the Lush Lilac Cling Stamp Set, and one inking of the lilac cluster from the Lush Lilac and Umbrella Spray Cling Stamp Set onto white card stock using ColorBox Concord Ink. Die cut using die cutting machine and coordinating dies. Color all lilac images and blossoms using Stack and Store daubers with a combination of ColorBox Wisteria and Memento Lilac Posies inks. For foliage color using combination of ColorBox Olive Pastel and Lime Pastel inks.

Shape stamped embellishment background pieces using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Shape lilac blossoms using 3D Lush Lilac Shaping Mold and Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit as shown in video link above.

Adhere the two smallest lilac clusters to oval frame as shown. Adhere large stamped lilac cluster image over where scroll appears on the decorative paper. Add shaped lilac blossoms to small clusters on frame and to large cluster on bottom corner of card as shown. Trim off the bit of branch under the birds tail and tuck into cluster as shown.

Instructions: The finished size of this tent fold card is 6in x 6in (15cm x 15cm) Taking the Kraft card-stock and cutting it to measure 6in x 12in (15cm x 30cm). Use the score-pal to make the fold for the tent fold card.

Taking the paper collection, find the design paper with the birds in it and the paper with the 3 tags. For the tags: Die cut the tags using the Luggage and Tags die set. Ink the edges of the tags with the walnut stain ink and daubers. For the card front: Taking the design paper, cut this to 3.94in x 4.92in (10cm x12.5cm). Take the Classic Border Basics die set and use the plain border die to cut the design paper in half from corner to corner. Ink all the edges of the cut design paper by using a dauber and the inks, milled lavender and walnut stain. Taking the rose beige card-stock cut 6in x 6in (15cm x 15cm) Place the cut design papers onto the cut card-stock a little from the straight edge then taking the pencil; draw the placement line for the lace border. Take the design paper away and die cut the borders using the placement lines. You will now have two card-stock fronts with a border. Ink both the lace border edges using the walnut stain distress ink and daubers. Adhere the card front layers together then adhere to the card front base, using the 3d foam dots, as seen in the card photo. Adhere the tags in place.

Taking the paper collection, find the paper with the lilac flower print. Using the versa-mark, embossing powder, stamp and the Misti stamping tool, stamp the flowers and buds. Taking the matching die set, die cut 23 flowers and 2 lilac bud images. Run the flowers through the vagabond machine using the Lush Lilac shaping mold to give shape to the lilacs and the buds also use the flower shaping tool kit.

Taking the organza ribbon, make a double triple bow. Adhere the bow to the card front under the tags. Adhere the flower buds and flowers to the ribbon knot with the hot glue gun. Arrange and adhere with the hot glue gun the rest of the lilac flowers to the tags, border and under the bird on the card front. To finish the card, add the diamond stickles to each of the lilac flower centers in the paper print. Add also to the lilac flowers if wanting more bling.

Instructions: We wish happiness and love for the perfect friend and the best friendship. This card will be for those who cherish friendship and some special friends in their life. This card measures 7"x 4.5" with a decorative panel holding the message. Take a white card stock and cut and score it at 7"x 4.5" which forms the card base and the first layer. Take a silver card stock and cut it at 1/8" smaller than the white card stock and glue it to the card base. Take another pattern paper with another 1/8" smaller and then with foam adhesive lay it on the silver card base. For the top layer die cut a pattern paper using a decorative border die and adhere it with foam to the base. This will make the card panel ready.

Stamp the lush lilac scroll image on a white card stock using plum archival ink. Using zig brushes color and shade the scroll and then punch a hole at the top. Tie a piece of twine at the top. Stamp the sentiment For my friend using plum archival ink. For the flowers and branches stamp using the Lush lilac cling stamp and Sweet Lilac scroll and notes set using plum archival ink. Die cut all the pieces and then color all elements using Zig brushes. Stamp several pieces of the lush lilac small flowers using plum archival ink from a white card stock and some using heat embossing with white powder. Shade some flowers using blue violet and tuck them with white center stamen. Die cut all the pieces. Shade and color them using Deep Purple and Vibrant Fuchsia archival ink. Spray the die cut with water and then shape the petals. Insert one single stamen in each of the flowers and leave it for drying.

Once all dried start assembling all the elements around the scroll note. Insert all the flowers at centers and filer space around the branches. While placing the stamped scroll image ensure the die cut piece is shaped a little and also placed on foam adhesive.

For more tips on creating with the journals, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/fw4lcnn_9zU.

Instructions: Cut paper to fit front and back of album which is approx. 8.75 x 8". I wanted to be sure to leave a white border all the way around. Cut 4 panels from collection measuring 5 x 7"; ink and distress all the edges, some with seedless preserves others with vintage photo. On the top 5 x 7" panel I decided to create a mixed media cover using some metals from my stash.

Gesso all your embellishments first then attach the heart to the resin frame. Place a steam punk heart button in the center of the heart and add some seed beads, gesso these. Gesso some wooden gears. Heat set to dry. Color with art anthology sprays and mists.

Gesso the center area of a 5 x 7" front panel, attach the mixed media items we prepared, tuck in some added gears as shown. I adhered all the heavy embellishments to the cover with gel medium

Using some seed beads, I added these to other areas on the cover just by using art institute dries clear and coloring them with alchemy wax. I used a chipboard title from creative embellishments and colored it with alchemy wax too. Attach all the papers to the cover as shown. I did add some alchemy wax to the base of the embellishments to add some highlight.

Instructions: My card is 6 X 6". Make card base and cover with one of the card fronts from the paper collection. Set aside to let the glue dry.

Using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink stamp the Lilac image and the Lilac petals. I colored the flower petals before I cut them out. Cut out the Lilac image and use the Dove Blender Pen and ink to color. I added the crystal clear and set aside to dry. I ran the flower petals through the Lush Lilac mold and then used my flower shaping kit to give the flowers just a bit more dimension.

I added Prills to the centers and some Crystal Clear and when everything was dry I glued the flowers to the lilac image and then I used dimensional tape to adhere to the card front. I also added some Crystal clear here and there on the card front.

Instructions: Cut a piece of White pearl metallic cardstock 6" x 12". Score at 3" and 9" and fold to create a 6" square gatefold card. Cut the lavender paper from the paper collection as follows: 4 pieces 2 7/8" x 5 7/8" each and one piece 5 7/8" x 5 7/8". Use the outer edge of the decorative Sweetheart Borders die to cut the two folded panels on the card and all of the designer 2 7/8" x 5 7/8" pieces. Diecut the decorative Sweetheart die twice from white pearl metallic cardstock and cut the border die once.

Adhere magnets on both panels of the gatefold and also on the base so the card closes securely. Ink the edges of all the inside designer papers with Deep Purple ink. Adhere the top border die behind the 5 7/8" x 5 7/8" panel and adhere all the designer papers to the card base using dries clear adhesive. Adhere the decorative Sweetheart diecuts to the front of the card as shown.

Cut the sprays from the paper collection using coordinating dies. Diecut them again from white cardstock and adhere together to form a stronger spray. Spritz with water and shape with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.

Stamp the lush lilac flowers on white cardstock using Archival Deep Purple ink, color with Memento Lulu Lavender and diecut using the coordinating die. Ink the edges of all the flowers with Deep Purple. Place face down in the Lilac 3D Mold, spritz with water and run through the die cutting machine. Place on the molding mat and use a stylus to press down in the center of each flower. When dry, sponge with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla's Crystal Clear glitter. Put a small drop of glue in the flower centers and sprinkle with I Cannot Tell a Lilac Prills. Adhere the flowers to the lilac swirl using a hot glue gun and add prills to the lilacs on the swirl. Using the dimensional dots, adhere the lilac swirls to the card base as shown. Add ultrafine transparent glitter to the leaves.

Using the Luggage and Tags die, cut two of the smaller tags, ink the edges with Deep Purple ink and adhere inside the front card panels.

Instructions: To make this card start by making the base for this 5" x 7" easel card. Take a piece of Purple card stock that measures 5" x 12" and score at the 7" and 9 1/2" marks. Once your score lines have been sharpened with your bone folder cover the base with paper from the Lush Lilac Paper Collection. Once you have your first layer on, cut another piece of purple card stock 4" x 5 3/8" and attach it to the bottom of the card as shown layering with another piece of paper from the Lush Lilac Paper Collection. Finish off the center panel with die cuts from the Spellbinders die and now it's time to decorate! The lilac flowers were stamped on white card stock using Imperial Purple Ink and die cut with the matching die before distressing with Violet ink and shaping with the Lush Lilac Shaping Mold and finally lightly spraying with Sparkle Glimmer Mist before dusting with Crystal Clear Glitter and accenting the centers with Lavender Stickles.

The images were stamped on white card stock using Leaf Green ink and die cut using the matching dies before coloring with Pebbles Metallic Chalks. The sentiment was stamped on white card stock using Versamark and heat embossed with Fern Green embossing powder before die cutting with Spellbinders Labels 50. Finally, ribbon and bling were added as shown.

Instructions: Cut card base at 11 x 5 1/2 inches. Score at 5 1/2 inches. Cut the mat layer from violet cardstock at 5 1/4 inches x 5 1/4 inches. Adhere the layers with double sided tape.

Using the Regal Borders and Pockets Die, cut two borders from white cardstock to create a bellyband. Adhere to the violet cardstock using Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.

Stamp the dogwood flowers from the Flowering Dogwood Cling stamp set. I used Memento Desert Sand to stamp the image. The flower petals were die cut with the corresponding die. I placed a hole in the center with a 1/16 in. craft paper punch. The petals were sponged with Rose Coral and Lime Pastel ColorBox Fluid Chalk Ink. The Stack and Store Daubers work great to get into the small centers. The flowers were lightly spritzed with a mini mister and shaped using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. The Small Pearl Pastel stamen were folded over floral wire and inserted through the hole in the center of the petals. The stamens were secured from the underside with a glue gun. The Leaves were stamped with Memento Olive Grove ink and lightly sponged with Lime Pastel Chalk ink.

The small lilac were stamped with Memento Elderberry Ink, with the Lush Lilac Cling Stamp Pad and die cut with the corresponding Lush Lilac Die. Punch hole in center of each petal with 1/16 in craft punch. Sponge the petal with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. Lightly mist with water from a mini mister and shape the petals with the Lush Lilac Shaping Mold. Allow to dry. Cut the medium pastel pearl stamen through the center hole and secure from the back with a hot glue gun. Apply a very small amount of clear crackle paint to a few petals and lightly sprinkle Crystal Clear glitter.

Adhere the dogwood and lilac leaves to the bellyband for a finished creation for that special friend.
