It’s easy and fun making these three-tiered, 3D daisies, with a Bone Folder. My colors are from the Fab Friday challenge.
Here is the Fab Friday challenge:
I began with the swirly, See A Silhouette Designer Paper, on a Blueberry Bushel card base.
Why not toss some daisies on there? So, I stamped petals from the Daisy Delight and Daisy Lane stamp sets in Petal Pink and Grapefruit Grove inks. Then, I cut the six rounds of petals with their punches. The two sizes of punches are in my Product List, along with their coordinating stamp sets.
Next, I curled the petals with a Bone Folder in a downward motion, and glued them together; two large, and the medium on top.
Click on this card, if you’d like to see a YouTube video of how I used the Bone Folder to form the daisies.
The leaves were made with a Frosted Bouquet die, and Call me Clover Cardstock, that I embossed with the Subtle Textured embossing folder.
“Happy Birthday” is from the Itty Bitty stamp set, stamped in Blueberry Bushel Ink, and cut with a Merry Christmas label die.
I feel “happy” looking at the end result, so I think it makes a good “happy birthday” card.
Thank you for stopping by. It’s fun trying new color combinations. It might end up being one of your favorites!
I’m still loving this deer from the Dashing Deer stamp set, and the way it cuts out easily with its Detailed Deer die. This deer is stamped in Soft Suede Ink on Crumb Cake Cardstock, and layered for thickness.
Since the deer wanted to be camouflaged, I let her blend in with a Crumb Cake background, layered on a Cherry Cobbler card base. The Cherry Cobbler matches a rectangle of Wrapped In Plaid 6X6 Designer Paper, and the scalloped border around the oval sentiment.
The sentiment, “Merry Christmas,” is from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set, stamped in Soft Suede Ink on Crumb Cake Cardstock, like the deer.
Layering Oval dies were used for cutting, then the sentiment was placed on Dimensionals.
A strip of Burlap Ribbon is underneath the sentiment, adhered with a piece of Tear & Tape. If you aren’t familiar with Tear & Tape, you can click on the picture in my Product List. It’s a strong adhesive, and works well with ribbon.
The wood textured rectangle is a piece of Pressed Petals Designer Paper, adding to the rustic flavor of the card.
Today’s design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.
This may end up being a card I make in quantity, since it would be fairly easy to duplicate. I would love to have my Christmas cards made before November. We’ll see!
Thanks for visiting! Have a wonderful day!
Life is full of adventure for this guy riding his bike at sunset.
Today’s project began with the word, “adventure,” from the Sweet Silhouettes die set, cut from Thick Whisper White Cardstock.
The sunset was made with a Layering Circles die and See A Silhouette Designer Paper. The red and yellow design makes a brilliant, instant sunset, don’t you think?
The sunset is contrasted against a layer of Blueberry Bushel Cardstock on a Thick Whisper White card base. The Blueberry Bushel layer was cut with a Stitched Rectangle Die for added interest.
I stamped the cyclist from the Enjoy Life stamp set, in Memento Black Ink, on the sunset circle.
The cyclist’s “road” is a retired piece of In-Color 6X6 Designer Paper. The current patterns are in my Product List below.
Using the Stamparatus, I positioned the “road,” stamping the wheels, so they would align with the wheels on the sunset.
My inspiration for today’s card was the Global Design Project challenge.
Thank you for stopping by. May your life be filled with adventure and beautiful sunsets!
