Cascading Fuchsia

Welcome back to my weekly Saturday blog for The Rubber Buggy Design Team.  I love making flowers and all of my wonderful paper crafting supplies come from The Rubber Buggy on-line store where you have wonderful customer service and very fast delivery.  The Rubber Buggy carries name-brand quality products for you projects.

This week, I made a card using the gorgeous Heartfelt Creation collections of paper, dies and stamps along with using Copic Markers, NUVO Embellishment Mousse colors and NUVO Crystal Drops.

Supplies:
Heartfelt Creations Die - Cascading Fuchsia
Heartfelt Creations Stamp Set - Cascading Fuchsia
Heartfelt Creations Fuchsia Cluster Stamp Set
Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose Vine Die
Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia 12" x 12" paper collection
Heartfelt Creations Fleur Border and Pocket die set
Heartfelt Creations Decorative Oval Die 
NUVO Crystal Drops - Rhubarb Crumble
NUVO Embellishment Mousse Peony Pink
NUVO Embellishment Mousse Mother of Pearl
Copic Markers
Ranger White Embossing Powder
Ranger Dye Black Tie Ink Pad
Poppy Stamp Theo Butterfly Die
4mm flat back pearl string
Neenah Premium White Gold Metallic Card Stock
Neenah Premium Extra Heavy White Card Stock
My Petunia - Misti Stamp Tool
Scor-Tape 1/2" wide
Pink and Rose Red Card Stock

Instructions:

Completed card measures 7" x 8".  I have to always use the Misti stamp tool for all of my stamping.  Otherwise, I get too many problems that can't be fixed of areas where the ink isn't stamped.  If you don't know how to us the Misti, I have a U-Tube tutorial on my blog and the huge benefits using this tool (I can say enough about the positive benefits of using this stamp tool).

I stamped the Heartfelt Creations Cascading Fuchia with the Ranger Black Ink and cut it out using the oval die in the Heartfelt Creations Decorative Oval die set.  I colored the flowers using Copic markers.  I cut out the Heartfelt Creations Decorative Oval with the Neenah White Gold metallic card stock and adhered the oval on the decorative oval.

Cut out four of the smaller borders in the Heartfelt Creations Fleur Border die set using the white gold metallic card stock.  Cut 6 1/4" x 7"  of the patterned paper found in the Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia paper collection.  Adhere the borders and oval on the patterned paper.  Cut out 6 3/4" x 7 1/4" of the white card stock and  7" x 8" of the purple card stock and adhere together and adhere the patterned paper on top.  Adhere the flat back pearls string to the decorative oval around the stamped image.

I embossed with the Ranger White Embossing powder the Heartfelt Creations Cascading Fuchsia large and medium size flowers. The top of each flower was cut using white card stock.  I used a samll flower bud with wire to assemble my flowers but you can use a silk flower wire and cut off about 2" and wrap aluminum foil or cotton ball around the wire and glue it together to assemble each flower.  Also, Heartfelt Creations has their own U-Tube on how they make the Cascading Fuchsia flower, by clicking HERE.  The reason that I haven't make the U-Tube yet, is that I am still trying different to create techniques of my own style.  I cut out the flowers with the Heartfelt Creations Fuchsia die set and used my fingers to spread the NUVO Mousse Peony Pink on the tips of each petal. I turn the petals over and use a flower ball molding tool, to mold each petal.  If your card stock is too heavy, use a light amount of spray to soften the paper.  Afterward, I use a embossing heat gun to dry the petals. I tried other ways of applying the NUVO on front of the flower petals but prefer using my fingers.  Afterwards, I poke a hole in the center of each group of petals and pull each one through the wire and adhere together.  I add glue in the center of the flower and add the stamen.  I used the NUVO Crystal Drop Rhubard Crumble to the ends of each stamen and let dry.  I color two beads with the NUVO Crystal Drop Rhubarb Crumble and pull through the wire and glue the beads to the flower. I die cut one Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose Vine and adhere to the top of the oval.  I cut part of the back of each flower and adhere to the top of the vine.  I made and adhere the bow using the 1/2" wide Scor-Tape.  I love this tape because  I can take the bow off of the tape to rearrange the bow and the tape remains sticky. .

 I cut out the Poppy Stamp Theo Butterfly die and applied using my fingers the NUVO Mousse Peony Pink and NUVO Mousse Mother of Pearl.  I adhere it with glue to the bow.

I used the sentiment found in the new Frantic Stamper Under the Sea Mermaid stamp set.

It's A Beautiful World




Welcome back to my Saturday's posting for The Rubber Buggy on-line store.  Hi, Nancy Hill, and excited to share a three fold card with a packet of petunia seeds.

I have many friends in garden clubs who would love a special card with a packet of petunia seeds for this potting this year.  Enclosed in the center of this card is a packet of petunia seeds.

Supplies

Instructions:

Card measures 6” x 6”.  Cut two 6” x 12” pink card stock for the main frame and score in the center of each frame.  Adhere two sections together to form three pages. 

Use the pink paper to cut two Heartfelt Creations Fleur Border Basic dies.  

First Page:  Cut the patterned paper 4” x 6”.  Use the 7” x 1.75” plain border die to cut the patterned papers for the front of the first page and pink main frame for this page.  Place the plain border die on the left side at 4 ½” and ends on the left at ¼”.  Use the other plain border die to cut the patterned paper for the back of this page.  Adhere the front page to the pink main frame.  Adhere one pink HC Fleur Border die as shown on the photo of the card.  Adhere the back of the patterned paper to the pink main frame of this first page.
