Flower Meadow


The card I have to share with you today is a one layer card…


well that is not strictly true, I ended up popping on a punched out flower!
I’m sure you will forgive me.

Here are the instruction to make this card

To make the sunrise, mask off the top part of the card with a large post it note. Use 4 different ink pads a yellow, red, light purple & dark purple together with a blending tool, such as a sponge.

Start with the yellow ink and make a semi circle, then add the light purple and then the dark purple. With the red, go in and add a little semi circle in the centre of the yellow.  

Leaving the mask in place, stamp the images in black ink. To get the different depths, stamp some without reinking your stamps.

Remove the post it note and add the sentiment at the bottom. Dot some Crystal Stickles around the flowers and the wings of the dragonfly. To finish, add Liquid Pearls to the centre of the flowers.

Happy Easter Ducks on Parade


The following are cute Easter Ducks made using punches…

which were then attached to a pillow box, filled with mini chocolate speckled eggs… yum!

Here are the punches used –

Ornament punch- for the head.

Circle punch (1 3/4″) – for the body.

Large & medium oval- for the bill.

Flower from the boho blossoms punch – for the tuft.

Circle from the itty bitty shapes punch pack – for the eyes.

Scallop circle (1 3/4″) cut into quarters – for the feet and the wings.

I used a dauber with pumpkin pie ink round all the edges of the punched shapes.

Everything was glued flat except the bill and the feet, which I used dimensionals to give a little extra dimension.

To finish, I used a gell pen for the detail on the eyes & bill.

Floral Gift Bag


The following gift bag was made…

floral gift bag

with piece of card 11″ x 8.5″ scored at 4.5″ & 6.5″ x 2.5″ & 6″.

From the centre rectangle corners, score diagonally out to 2.5″.

Place the right hand side of the embossing folder up against the 6″ score line and fold the 2.5″ side underneath, so you can put it through the Big Shot.

Using a bone folder, ensure that all the score lines are burnished. The box will come together quite easily, as you fold in all the scored lines.

You can glue the gift bag to fix it together and use an oval punch to make the handles.

Finally use Stampin’ Up! markers to add colour to the embossed image.
