A Blue Happy Birthday

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I want to share a birthday card made with Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms. I have shaped these flowers using the Oakberry Lane 3D Flower Shaping mold and they came out really well except for the largest flower.  The new flower shaping card is just so easy to use in the mold as well.

I hope that I have inspired you to use the molds for lots of different flowers.

Graphic 45 Taste of Summer

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I have a card made from Graphic 45 papers with some help from Heartfelt Creations tag dies.

I had made this card along with the shadow box frame that I eventually used for the Graphic 45 audition.  I love the contrast of the purple cardstock with the vibrant and colourful paper from Graphic 45.

 

Materials Used:

Graphic 45 Seasons Collection

Graphic 45 Floral Shoppe Collection

Heartfelt Creations Album Tags & Accents Dies

Creative expressions Iris Cardstock

Hemp Twine

Metal Embellishments

Scissors

Foam Tape

Instructions:

Cut a piece of cardstock 10″ x 7″, score at 5″ along the long side and fold to create a base card of 5″ x 7″.  Cut a piece of Iris cardstock 5″ x 7″ and adhere to the front of the card.  Cut the 4″ x 6″ panel from the Seasons Collection and adhere to the front over the Iris card.  Cut another piece of Iris cardstock 5″ x 7″ and piece of green stripped paper from the Floral Shoppe collection 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ and adhere to the middle of this card.  Die cut the tag out of the centre using the inner die from the Album Tag & Accents Die.  Die cut a narrow frame out of the Iris cardstock and adhere to the previously cut frame.  Adhere the outer frame to the card front using foam tape.

Fussy cut the floral images and hummingbird out from another panel on the same sheet of paper and adhere to the outer frame just over the sunflowers on the bottom right.  Fussy cut a small floral image from the paper with the small hummingbird and adhere to the bottom frame just to the left of the sunflowers.

Add narrow hemp cord on the bottom right corner.

Fussy cut the sunflowers out and adhere to the bottom right with double foam layers over the inner frame and single layer on the outer frame.

Cut the sentiment from the paper and adhere to the left as shown.

To finish add the small gold leaves around the flowers.

I would like to thank my friend Sue Hart for inspiring me to apply for the Graphic 45 team.
