INSTRUCTIONS:

The size of this card is 6 inches x 6 inches   Taking the swing fold card fold the middle section in half to make the ezel card.

From the paper collection find the striped design paper, sheet #5b. Cut this a little smaller than the card base for all the parts that will be seen when the card is finished. Adhere in place with the double sided tape. Using the Round Window Frame die set and the  sheet # 10b (blue) and the sheet # 12b (green) Die cut these round lace frames. Adhere these round lace frames to the round part of the card base. Adhere the round part to the folded part of the card front so it will stay in place when lying flat or folded.  This is now your card base ready to decorate with the elements from the collection.

To make all the elements for the card: Using all the stamp and die sets from this collection, stamp with the library green ink onto the white card stock. Color all the elements with the archival inks listed. The pinks for the flower fillers and accents, the greens for the leaves and steams of the fillers and accents. The cornflower blue and saffron are used for the dahlias. Each dahlia has one large petal layer and three small petal layers. Bring shape to the elements by using the essential shaping tools, the dahlia 3d mold and the water mister. When the dahlia petals are still moist from the water spritzing from using the 3d mold, pinch the petal ends to pleat so they will look more like a dahlia petal. When dry apply clear drying glue with the hydra sponge to the petal ends also to the leaves then dip into glitter. Put aside to dry. When dry tap off any lose glitter ready for use.

To put the dahlia flowers together:  Adhere all the dahlia petal layers together, first the large petal then the three smaller petals. Balling the last layer more in the center so it stands out more. The dahlia centers are filled with clear drying glue and then gold micro beads.  Put aside to dry.  When dry tap away the excess micro beads and store for another project. The flowers are now ready to use on the card.

Adhere the urn in place on the circle using the corrugated cardboard strips or the 3d double sided foam tape to raise the urn. Adhere the dahlias to above the urn and on the urn edge. Adhere the leaves, accents and fillers around, above and below the dahlias as shown in the photo. Adhere the triple bowed ribbon in place.

To make the card stopper: Taking the white card stock and the green design paper from the paper collection sheet #12b. Die cut fancy corners using the Swirly Boarder Accents die set. Cut one green and four white card stock per corner. You need two opposite corners. Adhere all together and place on the each side of the foot of the card.

To make the sentiment: Use the white card stock and the stamp and die sets for this. Stamp the sentiment with the French Ultramarine ink then die cut this with the matching die from the Elegant Especially For You cling and die set. Die cut four extra cuts of the sentiment from the white card stock. Adhere all together. Curl this a little so when you adhere to the foot of the card between the corners it will stay curved. Prepare the leaves and flowers used for both sides of the sentiment the same as above. Adhere in place. To finish the front apply the green stickles to the small flower centers.

The back f the card has a small cluster. Make the accents and leaves the same as above. Make a small triple bow from the ribbon. Adhere all in place.

INSTRUCTIONS:

This gate fold card measures 7 inches high and 5 inches wide when closed.

Using the gateway fold card for the card base, cut the two side panels down the centre in the length so you have two half fronts like doors.

To mat the card base, use the sheet # 9b for the matting. Die cut the matting by using the die from the scalloped Flourish Gateway set, trim this to fit a little smaller than the card base where needed, also cutting in the length. Adhere in place to the card inside and the card front.

Using this same paper sheet # 9b die cut the lacy elements needed for the card from the Scalloped Flourish Gateway die set. Three times of the bottom die and four times the rounded top die in the set (half circle). Ink the edges with the red geranium ink. Two of the rounded die cuts are adhered together so both sides are the same. Adhere this to the left door so it forms a half circle and crosses over to the right side door. Adhere a half circle lace next to this so it forms a full circle. Adhere a half circle to above this on the card. To the right side adhere the other die cuts as seen in the photo. The remaining die cut will be used for the inside of the card.

Taking the Lattice Swirl Gateway die set and from the collection paper sheet # 5a make the die cut.  Remove the sentiment part of the die cut and adhere the remainder of the lace frame to the card inside.

Make all the elements needed for this card using the stamp and matching die sets, the white card stock Taking the sentiment part of this die and the sheet # 9b die cut the sentiment. With the Large Circle die set, chose the circle that fits to the sentiment that has been cut. Make this into a circle. Die cut this circle three times from the white card stock. Adhere all the circles together. Adhere the letters from the die cut sentiment back into the circle. Ink with the red geranium ink. The words will also stand out more by doing this. Adhere to the adhered lace frame on the card in it’s place. Adhere the remaining die cut under the sentiment circle as seen in the photo. Curl the two half fronts of the card base so the tops show the inside of the card.

Using the white card stock, the stamp sets and the library ink make the dahlias and leaves. The three dahlias have two petal layers each. One large and one smaller layer. Stamp enough for three flowers and color them with the saffron and the red geranium inks. The centers are filled with the shaved glass. There are seven leaves used for this card. Color these using the green inks. Die cut and shape these petals and leaves using the matching molds and the water spritzer. Before adhering the petals together the glitter is applied. Apply clear drying adhesive with the hydra sponge then dip int the glitter. Do the same with all the leaves. The smaller flowers from the Tweet Cherry Blossoms sets are made the same way except these have stamens as flower centers. The stamens are threaded through a whole made in the center of the flower, secured with the hot glue gun. Then they are dipped into the glitter and set aside to dry. Once dry trim away the stamen ends ready to use. Make as many as needed for the card in different sizes. Taking the Wild Aster Spray sets and make at least six sprays, ink these with the olive ink. Apply the nuvo crystal drops to the berries in the sprays. Make a banner sentiment for the card using the white card stock, library ink and the ‘You’re an amazing friends’ from the Elegant Gateway Sentiments stamp set. Use the Olive ink to ink the edges of the banner. Make two half bows from the organza, pearl and the satin ribbons.

To adhere all the elements to the card: Adhere two dahlias to the left side of the card front door. The placement is to the top of the lace circle and under the curled part. Adhere the remaining dahlia to the right side in the curl of the door, before adhering, checking so it will still open and close.  Arrange and adhere the leaves in place then all the smaller flowers and the  sprays to both doors. Adhere the ribbons and the sentiment. Arrange and adhere the flowers and sprays to the card inside as seen in the photo.


I hope you had fun visiting today. Till next week with a new collection. It is so yum!
Till next time have a happy scrappy inky week, 
inky hugs and keep on keeping safe.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Using the gate fold ready made ready to use card base. The size: 5 inches x 7 inches. Ink the outer edges of this card base using the Tea Rose ink and inking tools.

Taking the white card stock and the outer frame from the die set Elegant Swirl Gateway, die cut a frame. Taking the inner frame with the doted holes in it, die cut this four times and adhere the four layers together. From one of the off cuts from the  frame just cut, stamp the sentiment “Thinking Of You Today” from the Sentiments set. Making the sentiment banners by stamping the “You’re An Amazing Friend” then trim the points as seen in the photo. This is stamped in Sepia ink. Color the sentiment with the archival inks and use the Tea Rose for the edges.

Using the frames and the paper from the sheet 12b and 5a die cut the rest of the cuts needed for the card. Adhere all the die cuts in place including the previous frames made.

To make the Dahlia’s and leaves: The stamping is done with the Library Green ink, the color used for the leaves is the Leaf Green ink and the colors Saffron and Tea Rose for the Dahlia’s. Bring shape to the Dahlia’s and leaves using the matching molds and the shaping tools. Pinch or pleat the ends of the petals to make them look more like a Dahlia petal. The petal ends and the leaves are finished with glitter, apply clear drying glue then dip into the glitter, put aside to dry before using. The Dahlia's have two petal layers, the centers are filled first with clear drying glue then the prills.

Cluster the Dahlia’s and leaves to the front of the card and adhere in place. Adhere the sentiment banner across the card front. Adhere the sentiment banner across the foot of the frame in the second card section. Adhere a Dahlia to the right of the sentiment on the third section of the gateway card. Add leaves as needed to finish. Take note this Dahlia will pop out of the card when the card is closed and will not lay flat but it is adorable when standing.

 OTHER PRODUCTS USED:

Hot glue gun, Green organza ribbon, Foam Inking tools, Double sided 3D foam tape, Double sided tape, Ranger Archival Ink Pad-Saffron, Glitter.


INSTRUCTIONS:

The gateway pre-made ready to go card base measures 5 inches x 7 inches. Fold the card so you can make a pocket with two of the sections. Apply a thin layer of clear drying adhesive to the three straight edges then close to make a pocket, leaving the rounded edge open. NOTE: Check to see how big the opening is before making the tag.Using the sheets 5A , 9B and the die sets Scalloped Flourish Gateway and the Ornate Flourish Gateway, die cut the frames and elements needed for this card. Ink the edges with the Saffron, Tea Rose inks and the foam inking tools. Adhere in place using the clear drying adhesive and the foam 3D double sided tape.To make the Dahlia’s and the rest of the embellishments: The Dahlia’s have each, two layers. Stamp the leaves and Dahlia’s with the Library Green ink then use the colors Leaf Green, Saffron Tea Rose and Red Geranium to bring color to them. These colors are also used to color the sentiments. Bring shape to the flowers and leaves by using the matching molds. The tips of the petals are pinched and pleated to make them more realistic. Clear drying adhesive is applied to the petal tips and leaves then dipped into glitter. Put aside to dry before using. Adhere all together and to the card base.To make the tag: Die cut the plain frame from the Scalloped Flourish Gateway set, trimming on both sides if needed to fit into the pocket. Stamp the sentiment from the Elegant Gateway Sentiment set. Color with the inks and use the Saffron ink for the edges. Adhere a triple bow to the top of the tag. Slide into the pocket. The bow will pop out above the card top so this makes the card fun when open or when it is closed.Make a sentiment banner for the front of the card and adhere this so it comes out from under the flower cluster. This card does not close flat. If you wanted it to close flat, all you need to do is not shape the petals of the inside flower as much or flatten it after shaping put a heavy book on it overnight. Then you will have shape but not the height. Have fun with that.

I absolutely adore this sentiment (below), actually both the sentiments in the stamp set. A worth while investment to the stash. Enjoy the rest of the show. till next time, have a happy scrappy week.

 Keep safe and well....don't forget to sprinkle some glitter in your world.

Inky hugs
