Hello Tulips! Step Card

Hello there... 

My card project today was from a product challenge I took part in.  My upline sends a random sampling of product that is being released, in the case,  from the 2022 Jan-June Mini catalog.  For this card I used a piece of the Flowerings Fields 12 x 12" Designer Series Paper and the Brushed Brass Butterflies.  

I am super excited that my card came in 1st place!  Yahoo!  So, let me share with you.

Card Details:

  • 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Basic Black Card Stock - scored and folded at 4-1/4 to form card base
  • DSP 4 x 5-1/4 
  • Poppy Parade card stock 4 x 5-1/4 and scrap to die cut the letters

You will need five different sizes of the Stitched Rectangle Die.  You will cut the DSP with the largest one, then third and fourth sizes down. 

With the second largest and small rectangle dies, you will cut the Poppy Parade card stock

  • Once all rectangles are cut, adhere the largest DSP piece on top of Poppy Parade that leaves a 1/4" boarder.  Adhere with two (2) layers of Black Dimensionals for extra height. 
  • Do the same thing to the next sizes down except only use one (1) layer of Black Dimensionals. 

Die cut three (3) sets of "HELLO" with the left over small rectangle and scrap Poppy Parade card stock.  Glue letters together and adhere to center of card.  Decorate with a couple of the Brushed Brass Butterflies.

My Favorite Dies without Stamps to Match

Did you know there are several products in the catalog that are just on their own?  Meaning, they are not available in a bundle; they are not apart of a product suite; they do not  have a coordinating stamp set.  

Let me introduce you to the ICONIC DIES!  Look how cute these are.  I have absolutely No idea why, but those mushrooms stood out to me and I just had to get this die set.  Yep!  No matching stamp set for this one.  Odd right... well, sometimes I do purchase dies or a punch and not the coordinating stamps so I was just as happy.  

Iconic.

I made a couple of projects to share...

Card 1:

  • I die cut 3 of each flower on Basic White card stock.  MAKE SURE to put Adhesive Sheets on the basic before you die cut.  Adhere those to a 4-1/8 x 5-3/8 piece of Basic White.  Snip off extra flowers hanging over the edges. 
  • Using Blending Brushes, blend on colors Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight.   The edges of flowers will pop as it catches extra color.
  • Mount to Pumpkin Pie card base 5-1/2 x 8-/12 scored at 4-1/4
  • Heat emboss in White, your sentiment, on Basic Black card stock.  Fussy cut around words and mount to card front with Dimensionals. 
  • Add some gems for bling!

Card 2:

  • Card base is standard A2 size of Thick Basic White card stock
  • On a piece of regular Basic White that is 4-1/8 x 5-3/8,  use Blending Brushes to blend the same three colors I use on Card 1.  
  • How did I get that oval?  I took a piece of scrap paper, same size as above;  die cut an oval, laid it  over my Basic White card stock, creating a mask and sponged the color.  Remove the scrap paper  to reveal the oval
  • Die cut the bird and branch, again making sure to use Adhesive Sheets and adhere to card front
  • Heat emboss words with white powder on black card stock and adhere with Dimensionals
  • Add some rhinestones for some bling!

Note:  I accidentally used a retired stamp set for my words but you can obviously use anything you have on hand
