THE FLOWERS AER MADE AS FOLLOWS:
Stamp the flowers and leaves needed for the project. Colour with the inks or Zigg markers. The Zigg markers used for these flowers are: 230 Pale Rose and 046 Mid Green for the flower centre and leaves. Once the flowers and leaves have colour, bring the shaping to them by using the 3D Cherry Blossom Shaping Mold. Make a whole in the flower centre for the stamens. On the smaller flowers thread 1 stamen and on the larger flowers thread 3 stamens into the whole. Use the hot glue gun to secure the stamens. When the hot glue has cooled and dried, apply a little clear drying glue to the petal edges with an old fine brush. Holding the stamen threads at the back of the flower, dip the petals into the glitter. Set aside on a try or sheet of paper to dry. When dry tap away the excess glitter then cut away the stamen threads at the back of the flower. These are now ready to use on your project.
THE BIRDS ARE MADE AS FOLLOWS:
Stamp and die cut the birds. Bring colour to the birds using 037 Cornflower Blue, 026 Light Pink, 051 Lemon Yellow and 023 Scarlet Red. Then bring shape to them by running them through the cutting machine with the 3D shaping mold for this collection.
The Zigg marker colours used for the bird’s house: 026 Light Pink, 037 Cornflower Blue, 046 mid Green. The hanging sentiment: 046 Mid Green and a Light Brown
Adhere the blossoms and branches to the center of the card base. Add the extra shaped birds to the birds on the branch.. Adding small blossoms as needed to fill the gaps. Making sure this can be used as a stopper for the card front. Arrange the elements to the card front: First adhere the branches with the leaves to the top and the foot of the card front then adhere the flowers in place by using the hot glue gun or clear drying glue. Adhere with foam dots and the clear drying glue the birdhouse and the sentiment hanger in their place, falling under the flowers. Adhere the keys in their place to the card front and the card base.
To finish the card, apply the Crystal Lacquer to the birds, the birdhouse, the sentiment hanger and the keys. Lay flat and set aside to dry.
These premade card bases makes our craft time even more fun!...and what about those window dies?
Till next time have a wonderful scrappy inky day.
