Jasmine and Iris

Hello everyone today I am posting a card that I made using a couple of Susan Tierney-Cockburn's latest releases  which, you can find at Elizabeth Craft Designs.   Jasmine and Iris are blooming on this card although I am not in the right growing zone for Jasmine the Iris grow well here in Central Maine. Here is the tutorial for the card: Cut green cardstock 6" X 12" scoring at 6" fold on score line forming a 6" X 6" card base. Cut white cardstock 5-3/4" square and die cut 1 corner (Tim Holtz Alterations die used here). Cut 3 corners from green cardstock using corner die from Tags & More 1 - Lace (or a corner die of your choice). Ink all edges (Distressed Ink - Vintage Photo used here) Attach white cardstock piece to the card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Attach corner pieces to corners away from die cut corner. Using Violet PanPastel from set 1 and a makeup sponge  sponge PanPastel onto white crdstock or for a darker flower

Lovely Carnation

Hello everyone weather here in Maine has been beautiful the last few days finally it has turned warm and the flowers are blooming like crazy.  My roses in front of my deck really started popping open today and they are so pretty. Today my post is using  a new release for Susan Tierney-Cockburn at Elizabeth Craft Designs.  I have used Susan's  Garden Notes Carnation die again I love making these they are so pretty and easy.  The card is an A2 card (5-1/2" X 4-1/4".  Here is how I made the card.  Using a 5-1/2" X 4-1/4" card base either a purchased one or you can cut cardstock 5-1/2" wide by 8-1/2" long and score at 4-1/4" to form your own card base. Using largest Stitched Rectangle die cut one rectangle from deep pink cardstock, Take green cardstock and cut to 5" X 3-3/4".   Cut white cardstock  4-3/4" X 3-1/2" and emboss this piece with Swirly Curves embossing folder or embossing folder of your choice.   Ink all edges

Hello Spring

Hello Everyone today my post is a card  that I designed for Susan Tierney- Cockburn's Design Team on Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog . Here in my area of Maine the Forget Me Not and Lily of the Valley are in bloom so of course I wanted to incorporate them into my design.   I am excited to post a card that I have made using one of Susan’s new releases Garden Notes Carnation along with foliage from the new CountryScapes Lavender die. I wanted to show you how to stretch your dies combining and interchanging them to make even more flowers as I have done here for the Forget Me Not and the Lily of the Valley.  I  also wanted to show you how you can create different looks by combining embossing folders.  For a full tutorial be sure to visit Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog at link above. Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you have a wonderful day. Christine Save
