Framed White Sunflower Shadow Box | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello and happy Monday crafty friends!

First of all, I would like to thank all of you that left me the sweetest comments and messages over on my Instagram in regards to the last Framed Lovely Layers Floral Bouquet I made. This beauty is now in Jennifer McGuire's craft room and I could not be happier about that!

Today's project was made for a friend and colleague of mine (hi Tomina👋) who asked me to make a White Sunflower shadow box for her after she saw the White Sunflower Slimline card I made. 

Here is how this beautiful frame came together.

FRAME RECIPE


Dies:
Paper: 
  • Cream, green and brown heavyweight Colored Cardstock
Frame:
  • Square 9 ¾ " Shadow Frame from IKEA (The frame I used has been discontinued, the one I linked is very similar)
Ink:

Die Cut Machine:

Adhesives:

Embellishments:

Other Tools:

Once you have put one of these flowers together, then the rest is simple. It is just a repetitive process.

  1. The first thing I did was cut all the layers for the 8 sunflowers I needed to form the shape of a heart. 
  2. I then ink blended up the centers of the flowers. 
  3. Curled the flower petals.
  4. Added foam to each layer of the flower to build up the petals and create dimension.
  5. To the centers, add a layer of glue to the bottom layer. 
  6. Drop the seed beads into the glue (I tried having the hole of the beads face up). Once the glue dried, I used a brown Copic Marker to color the center brown.
  7. To the top of the center, add small drops of glossy accents. While still wet sprinkle with Sparkle Glitter and piece the centers together.
  8. Glue centers to the flower petals.

Arrange the flowers how you like. Once you have that figured out, glue it to the paper background of the frame. Use foam to pop up some of the flowers in place. Finish by gluing the leaves in place.

I love how this White Sunflower Shadow Box frame turned out, and I hope you can see from this example that you do not need all the flowers to create something beautiful! 

Want to watch a quick video of how this came together.

Under the Sea Shaker Birthday Card | SVGCuts

Hi Everyone!

So excited to share with you this fun Under the Sea Shaker Birthday Card I made for my little niece Olivia who turned 5 this past weekend. 

If you have been a follower of my blog you will know that I have recently become obsessed with card making especially shaker cards! They are so fun and interactive and if 
adults love them, I'm sure kids will love them even more!

cardmaker,#SVGCuts,Silhouette Cameo,papercrafting,SVG Cuts file,ilovedoingallthingscrafty,Simon Says Stamp,Under the Sea Shaker Birthday Card,Birthday Card,dies,my favorite things,

I knew the birthday was going to be a mermaid theme but since I really didn't have any mermaid stamps, I decided to use my silhouette and cut and piece some cute Tropical Friend SVGs from SVGCuts. To the little mermaid and the rest of the sea animals, I added some details by drawing with a fine sharpie pen. To all their eyes I added tiny drops of glossy accents to make them pop and give them some life.

For the ocean background, I smooshed some distress inks (peacock feathers and salty ocean) onto some Canson watercolor paper. I also added some clear droplets to create the illusion of bubbles. The border die I used comes from My Favorite Things (Wonky Stitched Rectangles Stax). The stamped sentiment comes from Your Next Stamp (Snorkel Fun Fishy) stamped onto the Everyday Sentiment banners die from Lawn Fawn.  For the shaker mix, I used clear sparkly sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, Martha Stewart Glitter, and Recollections Microbeads.

Here is a closer look at all the details!


On the inside of the card, I stamped another sentiment from Your Next Stamp (Snorkel Fun Fishy).


I hope you like my Under the Sea Shaker Birthday Card and got some inspiration to make your own!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)
