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

Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear

Art Glitter Dries Clear glue

Pearls

Pretty and Delicate

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I want to share a card featuring the gorgeous Eyelet Lace die from Heartfelt Creations.  This is a very pretty and delicate card suitable for birthdays and weddings and the vellum Oakberry Lanes are the perfect touch to finish the card.

I have die cut four decorative dies and adhere two dies together for more strength.  I have also shaped the vellum flowers in the Oakberry Lane Blossoms mold and they came out well.

I hope that you get some inspiration to try this for yourself.

For tips on creating with the Mini Album and Pocket dies, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/72AzbXtt2jU.

Instructions: 

Cut a piece of white cardstock 8 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ and score at 4 1/4″ and fold. Die cut the card base using the outer edge of the outer die of HCD1-7248 Regal Frame & Accents Die set slightly over the folded edge. Die cut another outer edge and adhere to the front of the card. Die cut the outer decorative edge out of white cardstock and add Frosting Powder to the outer decorative edge before adhering to the card front. Die cut the inner decorative die out of white cardstock and add Frosting Powder to the lattice with Dries Clear glue on a damp sponge. Adhere to the card front. Stamp the ‘thank you’ sentiment from the HCPC-3846 Thank You Sentiments set onto a piece of white cardstock in Magenta Hue ink and die cut using the plain label die. Die cut two of the inner decorative dies out of white cardstock and adhere together. Add Frosting Powder using Dries Clear glue on a damp sponge to the die cut and then adhere the decorative die to frame the sentiment.

Stamp the leaf images from the HCPC-3842 Oakberry Lane Blossoms Stamp set in Forest Green ink on flower shaping cardstock. Colour with Leaf Green and Olive inks before die cutting with the coordinating dies. Shape using the coordinating mold and finish shaping with the golf tools. Add around the sentiment and frame as shown.

Stamp the flower images from the HCPC-3842 Oakberry Lane Blossoms Stamp set in Magenta Hue ink on the flower shaping paper. Colour the centres with Buttercup ink and the petals with Pink Peony ink. Die cut with the coordinating die and sponge the edges of the petals with Vibrant Fuchsia ink. Colour the back of the flowers with Pink Peony ink and spray with water and shape using the Golf Tools. Leave to dry and add Crystal Clear glitter to the petals with Dries Clear glue on a damp sponge and Heart of Gold Prills to the centres. Add the flowers to the leaves as shown.

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.
