Miss You

Hello crafty friends!

I don’t know about you, but I really miss my family and friends!

My project today features some beautiful dies from Crafty Meraki’s new release. The fabulous flower die is called Kelsey Meraki Flora Para-Dies. I paired the flowers with the Timeless Frames Mini Slimline Die and a sentiment from the To-tail-ly Awesome Stamp Set.

My card base is slightly bigger than the largest die from the Timeless Frames Mini Slimline Die to accomodate the layered look.

The flowers were die-cut from Watercolour paper and were colored with the following watercolour pencils.

~Derwent Watercolour Pencils~
Gunmetal 69
Olive Green 51
Grass Green 47
May Green 48
Golden Brown 59
Naples Yellow 7
Rose Madder Lake 21

Once my flowers were dry I added a small piece of cardstock behind the center of the flowers so the cutout portion could be glued down. I then punched an 1/8″ hole in the center of each flower so I could glue the stamens in place.

I curled some of the edges of the flowers before attaching them to my card with double sided foam tape. I then stamped the sentiment from the To-tail-ly Awesome Stamp Set, matted it with matching green card stock and attached that to my card with foam tape. The sequins were attached with Ranger Ink Glossy Accents.

As always, you can find an abundance of products for inspiration for sale here.

3D Trinket Box ~ La-La Land Crafts

Good morning!

It’s Inspiration Friday at La-La Land Crafts with a theme of ‘3D’.

I have never made a circle box before, so before I could start I needed to do a little research on how to do it.  Once I decided on which style I had supplies for, I dove in.  I was nervous to be honest…lol!

I think settling on an image sometimes is the hardest part for me…in the end this adorable little garden fairy from the Love to Garden Clear Stamp Set won!  I have always been drawn to the sweetness of this set.

I started my project by stamping this little cutie on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following Copic Markers.

I used the Pointy Flowers Die and Foamiran Foam to create the curled flowers that have stamen centers.  I ran the dies through my die cutting machine using the foam instead of paper, colored them with Distress Oxide inks and then heated them with an iron (with the inside of flower facing the iron) for a few seconds until they started to curl.
