Hydrangea Lawns Easel Card

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back to my second Design Team post for Dress My Craft.

I am still having so much fun with the Hydrangea Lawns paper and motifs and I really love using the Soft Floral Oriental paper for making flowers.  This paper is so easy to shape using the Golf Tools and the foam mat and the flower shaping possibilities are endless.  For today I have made an easel card using the circle nesting dies which are so versatile.


These little birds are just so cute, and I love the little sentiments that can be customized from the Motif Sheets.  They add some punch to your projects yet do not detract from your artwork.

Watch how I have made this easel card here:

A Clean and Simple Easel Card

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I am sharing a very clean and simple easel card featuring the very beautiful Anja’s Oval Die – LR0376 from Marianne Designs.

This die set is so versatile and so easy to create stunning cards.  I love the beautiful embossing that you get with the dies and how these dies can be layered in so many ways.  I have also kept this card very simple with the use of some pearls for the easel to sit against rather than adding an extra raised layer on the base of the card.  And of course I have to finish the card with Heartfelt Creations flowers and leaves.  I have used the following products:

Marianne Designs – LR0376 Anja’s Oval Die

Heartfelt Creations – Oakberry Lane Blossoms stamp, die and mold, Leafy Accents stamp, die and mold

Ranger Archival inks – Buttercup, Vibrant Fuchsia, Magenta Hue, Leaf Green, Fern Green, Library Green

Heart of Gold Prills

Art Glitter Dries Clear glue

Today I will be featuring a card made using a combination of the All Glammed Up paper collection combined with the Classic Roses from Heartfelt Creations.


Here is the inside of the card:


And here is a close up of the flowers:


Materials used:

All Glammed Up Paper Collection

Black Heartfelt Creations cardstock

Stamps – Classic Rose

Dies – Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose, Regal Borders, Cut Mat Create 1A, Spellbinders Large Circles, Lacey Circles

Art Glitter Dries Clear Glue

Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Overlay

Foam tape



Cut a base of 9” x 5 1/2” inch in black cardstock and score at 4 ½” and 6 ¾” and fold the end panel over to create the easel.  Fold into a Cut another two pieces of black cards stock 6” x 5 ½” for the fronts.  Using the edge die from the Regal Borders dies cut the edge from one side of the cards.  Cut two sheets of patterned paer 6” x 5 ½” and cut the lacy border edge from the Regal borders and adhere to the base card.  Place one on the top of the easel and the other on the base of the easel.  Finished measurement is 7” x 5”.

Cut out the panels from the All Glammed Up paper collection and mat onto black cardstock.  Die cut the circle image out of the panel using the Spellbinders circle die.  Adhere the lace to the card using Art Glitter Dries Clear adhesive.  Die cut a black lacy die from the Spellbinders Lacey Circles dies and mat the patterned circle image onto the die cut.  Adhere the image onto the back panel with foam tape for dimension.

For the base of the card die cut another image from a panel using the Cut Mat Create 1A die and mat it with black cardstock adhere it to the second panel.

To make the flowers stamp the Classic Rose stamps in a variety of sizes with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto red cardstock.  Die cut out the shapes and sponge the edges with Rhubarb Stalk ink.  Using the Deluxe Shaping Kit shape the flowers and assemble them in the sizes you want.

Stamp the leaves from the Classic Rose set with Northern Pine and sponge with Bamboo Leaves before die cutting.  Shape the leaves using the Deluxe Shaping kit.

For the base I have added one larger rose and two smaller roses on the leaves either side to hold the easel in place.

Add the leaves and flowers as shown and finally add some pearls on the centre image.  Die cut the sentiment using the Luggage Tags and Labels set and sponge the edges with Rhubarb Stalk ink.  Adhere with sponge foam.

I have used Spectum Noir Clear Sparkle Overlay on the roses for a bit of shine and sparkle.

Have a good week and Happy Crafting
