Hello, crafty friends! 

Today, I'm excited to share a special shaker card with you. This beach-themed card was created for a dear friend and colleague, who is a doctor I've had the pleasure of working with for over 26 years. As he moves to a warmer climate, I wanted to send him off with a card that captures the essence of his new sunny surroundings.

Hydrangea Wreath Card | Spellbinders

Hydrangea Wreath Card, Spellbinders, Nature's Botanical Garden Collection by Susan Tierney-Cockburn, how to, hand made card, Stamps, stamping, die cutting, card making, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, ink blending

Hello, my friends!

Today I have a card for you featuring some of my favorite flowers. I absolutely love Hydrangeas, especially the colored ones. This card features the HYDRANGEA ETCHED DIES from the Nature's Botanical Garden Collection by Susan Tierney-Cockburn.

CARD RECIPE
 
WREATH:
  • Die-cut the leaves using the HYDRANGEA ETCHED DIES
  • Ink blend the leaves, adding extra shading to the center with a detailed brush.
  • Gently bend the leaves at the center.
  • Using Circle Dies, die cut a frame to adhere the leaves to, covering it completely with the leaves.

FLOWERS:
  •  Die-cut the flowers using the HYDRANGEA ETCHED DIES. For this project, I used the 2 smaller flower bases to glue the flowers to.
  • Add color to the die cuts by ink blending colors of your choice. For the centers, add additional ink using a detail blending brush. Color the backgrounds of the flowers in the same color as the hydrangeas.
  • To create dimension, lay each flower on a foam pad and press the center with a ball stylus or tool small enough to press in the center. 
  • Glue flowers onto the flower bases and allow them to completely dry.
  • Once dry, add a drop of glue to each center, place a pearl into the wet glue, and let it dry.
SENTIMENT:
  • I had previously foiled this sentiment and saved it from a previous project. Unfortunately, it is no longer available, but it can easily be substituted with any other foiled sentiment or die.
  • Use Polished Brass Glimmer Foil along with the Hot Foil System to create the sentiment
ASSEMBLY:
  • On a square card base (this one measures 5 inches), glue the leaves layer.
  • Add foam to the back of the sentiment strip and center it in the wreath.
  • Glue the hydrangea bunches in place covering up the sentiment strip ends, and use foam for added height.

I hope you enjoyed today’s Hydrangea Wreath Card tutorial. A creation as special as this deserves to be gifted to someone who will truly appreciate the craftsmanship and love put into it.

Sunset Palm Tree Birthday Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Sunset, Palm Trees, Birthday Card, Honey Bee Stamps, ink blending,distress oxide, beach, Hammock dies,Sunkissed Summer,how to, hand made card, Stamps, stamping, die cutting, card making, ilovedoingallthingscrafty,

Hello, my friends!

It feels like forever since my last blog post. I've been taking it slow lately, as I've just returned to work after my back injury. Crafting has had to take a back seat for now. Plus, the weather has been amazing, and I'm trying to enjoy it while it lasts.

Today, I'm excited to share a summer-inspired sunset birthday card with you. There's something magical about a sunset over the ocean, with the beautiful reflections on the water. If you enjoy ink blending, this card is perfect for you and quite simple to make.

CARD RECIPE
See the complete list of supplies below

Sunset, Palm Trees, Birthday Card, Honey Bee Stamps, ink blending,distress oxide, beach, Hammock dies,Sunkissed Summer,how to, hand made card, Stamps, stamping, die cutting, card making, ilovedoingallthingscrafty,

Mask the Sun:
  • Begin by masking out the sun using the Circle Spotlight Stencils. (discontinued, but you can create your own using Sweet Stacks: Circles Dies)
  • Add a piece of masking tape across the bottom of the sun to create the water level.
  • Blend the sun using Mustard Seed Oxide Ink (OI) in the middle, and Ripe Persimmon OI on the edge.
  • Remove the stencil.

Blend the Sky:

  • Cover up the sun with a circle mask.
  • Blend out the sky, starting with Mustard Seed OI, followed by Picked Raspberry OI, Wilted Violet OI, and Blueprint Sketch OI.

Create the Water:

  • Remove the masking tape and cover up the bottom of the sun at the water level.
  • Blend the water to create the sun's reflection using the same colors as the sky.
  • Remove the masking tape.

Finish the Background:

  • Cover up the top half of the card above the water line.
  • Mist the bottom with water and use a paper towel to lift some of the ink from the paper.
  • Trim the panel and glue it to the card base.

Add Glitter:

  • Apply a generous amount of liquid glue to the water line and sprinkle chunky glitter over it.
  • Drag the glue down into the water's reflection and sprinkle prisma glitter over it.
