Creative Inspiration of the Week

Other Products: Cut file, White cardstock, Flower sticks, Pan Pastel Flower Coloring Kit, Rusty Hinge Distressed Ink, Ribbon from my stash and die cutting machine.

For more tips on creating with the foam paper & stamens, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/Oma6ctVmUD0.

Instructions: Start by cutting the parts for the centerpiece according to the directions found here out of a combination of white card stock and designer paper from the Beary Fun Retreat Paper Collection. Now it's time for some Foam Fun! Working with foam is fun and I really enjoyed it. The end result is a more realistic flower then the traditional paper flower. 

Let's start with the Enchanted Mums first. Stamp the Enchanted Mum flowers on Art Foam Paper using StazOn Jet Black ink and die cut with the matching die before coloring with DairyLide Yellow and Red Iron Oxide Pan Pastels. Now using your Flower Shaping Tools and the Heat It tool, gently heat the flowers and shape them holding them in place briefly after removing the heat. Once you have your layers formed and assembled finish with the Rock Candy-Small stamens.

Next stamp the Classic Sunflowers on Art Foam Paper using Jet Black ink and die cut with the matching die before coloring with Orange, Yellow Green, Red Iron Oxide and Magenta Pan Pastels. Now using your Flower Shaping Tools and the Heat it tool, gently heat the flowers and shape them holding them in place briefly after removing the heat. Once you have your layers formed and assembled, finish with Assorted Bright-Medium stamens.  

Finally stamp Vines and Leaves from the Classic Rose Collection and the Delightful Daisies Cling Stamp set on white cardstock using Olive Green and die cut with the coordinating dies before distressing with Bamboo Leaves and Rusty Hinge inks. Cut a sentiment from paper pad and adhere on a flower stick, finish with a bow.

Instructions: The card base is cut from white smooth cardstock and measures 5 1/2" x 71/2 ". Cut a mat layer from white smooth cardstock measuring 5 1/4" x 7 1/4". Cut 5 strips measuring 1'' x 7'' from the designer paper of Classic Petunia Collection and distress all the sides with distress ink Seedless Preserves. Distress all the 4 sides of all the 5 strips using Tim Holtz Distressing tool or sharp scissors. Once all the strips are ready adhere them to the mat layer using Dries Clear adhesive leaving a very small space in between all the strips. 

Choose a patterned paper with a floral print from same collection and hand tear as shown. Foam mounts it on the front panel of the card. Insert few white die cut pieces under the torn edges to add an extra accent. Layer the prepared card front on the card base using foam dots.

Cut 2 pieces of Medallion dies from white cardstock along with their base and arrange them on the card front as shown.

Stamp the multiple images of Petunias using Plum Archival Ink and cut them using their coordinating dies. Color the petals using Gallery Dry Oil Pastels 210, 256, and 241.

Decorative Bouquet

Decorative Bouquet

Other Products: Cactus StazOn, Wilted Violet Distress Ink, Citron Distress Ink, Linen Seam Binding, White Linen cardstock, White Neenah smooth, pearls

For more tips on creating with the foam paper & stamens, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/Oma6ctVmUD0.

Instructions: Card size approximately 5 1/4 X 5 1/4". Cut white cardstock 5 1/2" X 11", fold in half and place decorative die outline on one side with the top corner hanging over the fold so that it doesn't cut the top all the way out. See Liz Gaze's tutorial on shaped cards here. Place the top plate up to but not over the straight side of die so  it does not cut the center of the card and then run it through your die cutting machine. Turn the die around and die cut the other side the same way. The bottom will need a bit of trimming between bottom scallops, it should look similar to the top folded edge. Now die cut a purple panel from designer paper the same way to match and glue it to the folded card. Die cut the inside part of the decorative die twice from white cardstock and glue to purple panel.

Die cut scallop edge circle from decorative Classic Petunia paper and another smaller circle from same paper. Die cut Art Foam using the same circle die and attach smaller circle to create a 3D effect. Cut the sentiment from designer paper and flag cut both ends. Use Vibrant Violet Stazon to stamp Enchanted Mums on the Art Foam Paper and die cut, then sponge on Wilted Violet to color. Use Cactus StazOn to stamp Wildwood Florals on Art Foam Paper and die cut (no extra color was added). Use your heat gun to heat foam mums which will cause them to curl upward. Use your hand to cup it after heating, to help with the cupping action to form your mums using several layers (a glue gun works best for gluing the foam together). Punch a small whole in the center of layered flower, using the piercer and insert stamens. Heat Wildwood foam flowers and shape each petal by twisting and pinching. Layer and add small pastel stamen.

Stamp Dogwood leaves using Bamboo Leaves Memento onto white cardstock, coloring with New Sprout Memento Ink and die cut. Form and add to flower arrangement. Arrange flowers as shown, add light green pearls and glittered dragon fly (from Enchanted Mums). Dye seam binding to match for bow, scrunch up and let dry. Make a bow and add to top of card.

To see how to shape the roses, watch the video at https://youtu.be/Z8P070kC3oo.

Instructions: Cut a piece of mauve cardstock to 6x12". Using a template trace and cut a half circle. Using Extreme Double Sided Tape, adhere the cardstock into a cone (party hat) shape. Die cut 1 intricate lacy image from white cardstock. Adhere to the top of the party hat using mini adhesive dots.

Stamp and die cut 3 sets of the leaves from the Blushing Rose Stem stamp and die set in Archival ink onto green Beary Fun Retreat patterned paper. Shape and set aside. Stamp and die cut 3 sets of the Small Classic Petunia from Art Foam Paper, using Black Archival Ink on white cardstock. I added colour just to the middles of each flower using violet ink and Stack and Store Daubers. To shape my foam flowers I use a heat gun, a mason jar lid, and my stylus to hold them in place. The mason jar lid makes a nice heating surface that holds a little heat. Place the flower face down, heat, and then right to the shaping mat to shape. Using a little bit of hot glue I added the light yellow Pastel Bead Stamen, 3 in each.

Stamp and die cut 3 sets of the mini Water Lily images on Art Foam Paper in Black Archival Ink. I kept these little flowers white. So I moved right onto shaping, much like the Classic Petunias. Add a single light blue pearl stamen in the middle of each flower.

Stamp and die cut 2 sets of the medium Classic Rose images onto Classic Rose pink patterned paper, using Black Archival Ink. Ink the edges using Blush ink and daubers. Shape and assemble the flowers. I added pink stamen in the middle of one open rose.

Using hot glue I started adding clusters of flowers around the entire base of the party hat. Add loops of the pearl trim around the clusters. Then I added white buttons in a few of the open spaces.

Simply using hot glue, I added a couple of foam flowers to the plastic bracelet to make an easy coordinating accessory.

Instructions: The finished size of this slider card is 8 1/4” x 7” (21 cm x 17.8 cm ) Taking the A4 card stock, make the card base. 

Visit HERE to see a detailed photo tutorial and instructions on how to make the card base. 

For the card front, take the green card-stock, cut this to 6 3/4” x 5 1/2 “ (17 cm x 13.8 cm ) Find the orange and the world map design papers in the paper collection. From the orange paper cut 8 1/4 “ x 7 “ ( 21 cm x 17.8 cm ) for the background and 8 1/4 “ x 2” (21 cm x 6 cm ) for the card foot, cut also to fit the slider stop. From the world map paper cut a little smaller than the green card stock. Ravel both the design paper edges with the paper-distressing tool.  

The world map design paper card front has embroidered hearts in the curved flying line. To do this, sketch on to a piece of scrap paper cut to the same size. Secure the two papers together with the paper clips. Taking the pricking tool and pricking mat, make holes for the backstitch embroidery on the drawn line.  Embroider this with the gold thread. Adhere the papers and cardstock together as shown in the tutorial.  

Find the airplane in the paper collection and die cut this. Using the misti stamping tool, stamp the image with the gold embossing powder. Cut x 4 extra of the airplane from the white cardstock, adhere together to make a chipboard embellishment. 

Taking the circle dies, green cardstock, the world map design paper from the collection and the photo make the circles. The green card-stock size is the 4th of the Small circles set, cut x 4 extra from the white card-stock as backing. The world map design paper is cut from the 5th circle of the large die set. Cut x 4 extra from the white card-stock for backing. The photo is cut from the 3rd circle die from the same set. Cut extra circles for the photo if needed. The photo is adhered to the circles with the 3d foam double dots. The circles are adhered with dries clear adhesive to the card front. 

For the sentiment circles, stamp the sentiment with VersaMark and heat set with gold embossing powder onto the world map design paper, cut a circle to fit from the die sets. From green cardstock, cut a matting circle a little larger. Adhere these together. Trim to fit in against the larger circles, adhere in place. Adhere the airplane to the card front in line with the embroidered flying line. 

Make 3 triple bows from the organza ribbon. Taking a bow, fold it back on it self and secure this with the hot glue gun. Do this for 2 bows. The third bow. Put aside for the slider stop at the top of the card. 

To make the Art Foam Paper flowers and leaves, use the StazOn inks for stamping, as this will be permanent. Cut the flowers and leaves with the coordinating dies. Use the green Pan-pastels to colour the leaves and the Violet and yellow to colour the lilies and small flowers. Use the Heat It Craft Tool to bring heat onto the Art Foam Paper flower shapes. While still warm, shape with the flower shaping tools and your fingers. You will need to do this to one flower petal layer at a time and try to work quickly as to utilize the heat. Stack the flower petals then pierce a hole in the flower centre ready for the stamens. 

The stamen colours used for these flowers are black and yellow from the Assorted Pearl-medium  collection. Fold the stamens back on them selves then thread them through the flower hole. Once the stamens are in place, secure with the hot glue gun, this will also secure the flower layers together. Trim the excess stamen at the back of the flower away. 

Arrange the ribbon, flowers and leaves around the circles. Adhere the bow to the card slider stop at the top of the card then adhere the lilies and leaves to finish the card.

For more tips on creating with the foam paper & stamens, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/Oma6ctVmUD0.

Instructions:  My card is 4 1/4" X 5 1/2". Make card base and cover with a piece of the paper collection just a little smaller. I edged the paper with Aged Mahogany Distress ink and adhere onto card base. Next die cut the Botanic Window from white cardstock and glue it to the card front and adhere.

Now the fun begins; Using Black Stazon Ink stamp the flowers and leaves on Art Foam paper. I used a dry baby wipe and applied oil pastels to the petals of the flowers and leaves. Die cut everything and then use a heat gun to curl the flowers and leaves. Now turn them over and apply pressure to the center with one of the burnishing tools just until the Art Foam cools and then it will hold its shape. Next I added a bit more color as manipulating the petals causes the ink to fade.

I used a small hole punch to cut a hole in the center of the petals so I could feed through the stamens. Now add the stamen and I used the wire to help feed them through the center of the flowers. Put a bead of hot glue to help hold them in place.

Stamp dove on white cardstock using black ink and diecut. Shape using the deluxe flowershaping kit. Decide on placement for flowers and the dove and hot glue everything down. I waited until now to add the glitter to the dove and flowers. Allow to dry and this is when I glued the half pearls down. Once everything is dry the card is ready to go.

So nice to see the addition of what you are calling foam paper. I have been enjpying this product for a few months (had to import it) and the results are more than fantastic. Some of your earlier dies like Delicate Asters, Vintage Floret(my favorite) are excellent for this type of floral designs. The larger dies are exciting.

OMG, so pretty. I love the foam. I had to order what I have from the UK since I couldn't find it here in the States. There is also a silk foam that's even more delicate and requires no heat. I, personally like heating it, though. I bought a cutting board with a handle to specifically use for heating the foam so I don't burn my countertop in my craft room. Loved your video...haven't used the stamp paint before, but will check it out.
