Watch the video to see how to shape the Cascading Fuchsia Flower.

Instructions: Create a top fold card using cream colored card stock by cutting two pieces measuring 5" x 7" and then making a fold at the top of one of them. Adhere the fold to the top of the other piece of cardstock to form your card base. Stamp image onto water color paper and color using watercolor brush and distress markers. (I prefer to scribble color onto my work mat and lift off of there with the brush). Once completely dry, using sponge distress ink tool, add some Antique Linen ink to various areas around the image. Then using the same technique apply Vintage Photo ink to various areas around the image. Remove lid from Mr. Hueys spray and allow small drops of color to drop onto image. Set aside.

Using a manual die cutting machine, cut the Spellbinders Heirloom Legacy piece from a fuchsia colored patterned paper from the paper collection. Using the same paper, cut a background for behind the image just slightly larger than the die cut. Locate a purple patterned paper from the paper collection and cut it to just slightly larger than that of the piece you have just cut from the fuchsia paper. Now trim your image so it can be sandwiched between the die cut and the background paper. Adhere the fuchsia colored background paper to the purple background paper, and then the watercolored image to the fuchsia paper. Apply 3D pop dots to the die cut to form a window for the image. Stamp the large and mid sized flower images onto white card stock to create your shaped flowers. 

Fuchsia Friendship In Bloom

Color using same technique as the main image. Using coordinating die and manual die cutting machine, cut out flower pieces. Using mists of water and flower shaping tools, shape and assemble with liquid adhesive. Using the Classic Leaf Cling Stamp Set and black ink, stamp three bunches of leaves. Color and then shape. Assemble leaf and flower cluster in top corner, and once happy with design adhere using liquid adhesive. Place decorative hairpin in among leaves and blooms. Lastly, locate the sentiment you wish to use on the bottom of the card from the paper pack and cut to size. Adhere using 3D pop dots. You now have an "any occasion" card ready to bless someone with the next time you need one!
