Flower box

I know Christmas is on everyone's mind right now but I'm bringing you some floral delights today!   I thought it was about time I make a box card and I knew just which flowers to use!   Without any delay, here is my first picture of today's project.

Isn't it just lovely??  All of the flowers are from the same stamp set --Friendship Blessings.  The set comes with the main cluster of three images but I wanted some single flowers.  With a bit of creative masking and delicate cutting, I managed to get several "single" flowers to use for this project. 

I stamped the flowers several times on Cryogen White cardstock.  I used Copic markers to color all of them in with a range that matched the floral paper I used.  I also colored a piece of cardstock in the same green I used for the stems and cut out several greenery pieces with a die.

I made the box from Stampin' Up Blushing Bride cardstock and stamped a background design with Lost Lagoon ink.  The floral paper (I'm in love with it!) is from the Basic Grey line called RSVP. 

I forgot to take a side view so you can see the papers I also adhered to the sides.  It is also from the RSVP paper pad.  Trust me, it's just as gorgeous!

I started by adhering the flowers in the different sections of the box.  When I was happy with how they looked I went back and added the greenery pieces.  I wanted the box to look full but not crowded.  The sentiment from Beautiful Blooms-Sweet Rose was stamped in Lost Lagoon.  I used craft foam to pop it up from the patterned paper.  As a final touch, I added a few Chantilly Cream sequins. 

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday full of friends and family!

Until next time...

Happy Birthday

Its Karen back with you today.  I'd like to share a softly coloured Happy Birthday card.  This card features the Beautiful Blooms - Hydrangea stamp set.  Its stamped in soft pink ink so the lines blend and fade with the colouring.  The look I was going for was like the image was behind vellum, soft and muted.

I coloured the flowers in pencil and shaded the pinks out with white to make them really soft.  In the centre of each flower is a small amount of green with white gel pen over the top.  This added a bit of interest and gave the flowers a little more life, otherwise they were a little flat.  The outside of the bloom is shaded in very soft grey blended out with white.  The leaves are done the same way with soft green, again blended out with white.

I used a piece of green cardstock on top of pink to bring the card together.  Final step was to stamp the sentiment in black to add a little drama to the card and draw the eye to the flower.  Finished off with a few sequins from the …

October Mood Board with LeeAnn

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here today with my take on the Kennedy Grace Designs October Mood Board. If you are not familiar with mood boards they are great jumping points for a project, whether you use one of the images as the inspiration or the color palette alone. 

For my project today I decided to use the color palette, starting with the black and going from there. Using the Just A Rose Stamp Set, I stamped the Rose image using VersaMark clear ink, I then sprinkled Perfect Pearls in Copper over the image and brushed off any excess. I then fussy cut around the image to use it for my project.  I then prepared my layers for the card base. my main base is Kraft cardstock in a2 size. my next layer which is purple was trimmed to 4" x 5.25", and then the green trimmed to 3.75" x 5". I used Tear Tape to adhere the layers together as well as the rose. I used a piece of black cardstock to make a fish tail banner, I stamped the sentiment using Memento T…
