Sweet Peas for Mother's Day


Cut Deluxe Flower Shaping paper to 6 x 12", score and fold at 6" and 9” to create card base. Cut a second panel at 6 x 6”, glue onto folded card base, only apply glue beneath the bottom score line, to create the easel card base. Cut paper from sheet 4A of the HCDP1-2137 Sweet Pea Paper Collection into two 5 13/16 x 5 13/16” squares. Lightly ink edges with Forget Me Not ink and dauber, then adhere one onto card front, and the second one on the inside of card base.

Using white cardstock, diecut two small lattice oval from HCD1-7393 Classic Floral Vase Die. Ink the edges using Dauber and Forget Me Not ink. Apply Dries Clear Adhesive onto Hydra Sponge and dab randomly over diecuts, then sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear, tap off.  Adhere one on the inside of card base as shown, only applying glue onto 3 sides of oval, allowing the top of oval to remain free, for the easel to rest on. Use a scissors to cut the second lattice oval in half lengthwise and adhere on each side of card front as shown. 

Stamp large round vase from HCPC-3982 Classic Floral Vase Cling Stamp Set onto white cardstock using Forget Me Not ink. Stamp grateful sentiment from HCPC-3844 For My Friend Sentiments Cling Stamp Set onto center of vase using Cactus Flower along the top and Forget Me Not along the bottom of sentiment. Use dauber to apply Forget Me Not, along the edges. Using a Hydra Sponge, apply Crystal Lacquer along stamped edges of vase. Before Crystal Lacquer dries, use your fingers to take a pinch of Crystal Clear and lightly sprinkle it lightly onto vase. Doing this just gives a hint of sparkle rather than covering the vase. Allow Crystal Lacquer to dry. Adhere vase onto card base using foam adhesive.

From HCPC-3980 Sweet Pea Cling Stamp Set, stamp 3 large leaves and 3 small leaves first in Leaf Green ink, stamp off on scrap paper, then apply Viridian ink before stamping onto Deluxe Flower Shaping paper. From same stamp set, stamp one large sweet pea set first using Forget Me Not , then applying Cactus Flower ink, finally, stamp off on scrap paper before stamping onto your Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Stamp 4 small sweet pea flower sets using the same ink colors and method. Stamp two of the vining sweet pea HCPC-3981 Vining Sweet Pea Cling Stamp Set onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper first using Leaf Green, stamping off, then applying Viridian ink. Diecut using coordinating dies.

To color the flowers and leaves, use Stack and Store dauber to apply Viridian ink onto center veining of leaves and vining sweet pea foliage. Apply soft hues of Cactus Flower and Forget Me Not ink onto vining sweet pea flowers. Use Deluxe Flower shaping Kit to softly add shape onto vining sweet peas. For the sweet peas you’ll need one petal duo and one petal trio to create a single sweet pea flower. On two of the small sweet pea flower sets use Vibrant Fuchsia to color both front and back, before adding a soft splash of Cactus Flower along the edge. On remaining large sweet pea and 2 smaller sweet pea sets, use Cactus Flower on the backside, then on the front use a blend of Vibrant Fuchsia, Forget Me Not and Cactus Flower. Use Hydra Sponge to apply Crystal Lacquer onto leaves and flower petals. Allow to dry. Once dry, use coordinating shaping mold to shape petals and leaves. Add more shape onto 3D sweet peas by using stylus tip or piercer lengthwise wrapping petal around it, curling the edges down with your piercer. On the petal duo, use stylus or piercer lengthwise again, to wrap petals around creating an even tighter dimension. Use hot glue to adhere the petal duo inside the petal trio to create a full upright structure. Adhere leaves and sweet peas onto card base as shown.

Use Stack and Store dauber to color stamen wire with Viridian ink. Use scissors to cut bead off, leaving you with just the wire, then wrap around stylus tightly for a spiraled effect. Adhere onto card as shown. Stamp sentiment from HCPC-3846 Thank You Sentiments Cling Stamp Set onto a 2 5/16” x 1 3/8“ piece of Deluxe Flower Shaping paper using Cactus Flower along the top and Forget Me Not along the bottom. Adhere onto inside of card base using foam adhesive. Apply Dries Clear glue onto sponge, carefully dab on flowers, and foliage as shown, sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear, tap off.
