Instructions:
The finished size of this square tent fold card is 6.299” x  6.299” (16 cm x 16 cm) 
To make the card base:
Taking the white card-stock, cut the card base to 6.299” x 6.299” (16 cm x 16 cm) x2. In one of the cards make a 0.59” (1.5 cm) fold in the top, add double sided tape to the fold. Placing both pieces together this will form the tent fold card base. Taking the orange card-stock cut matting (15 cm x 15 cm) And (14.5 cm x 14.5 cm).  Find from the paper collection the design paper used and cut this a little smaller than the card-stock mattings. Adhere together the matting and matching design paper using double sided tape or clear drying glue Adhere the two layers together using the 3d foam tape or dots.


 
To make the flowers: 
Taking the design paper scraps from the collection use the classic rose stamp and die set to make the rose petals. Use the distress inks to bring color to the leaves, rose petal tips and centers. Spray the petals and leaves with the water mister place in the rose mold then put the mold through the die cutting machine twice to get a good press. (Do not make the paper or card-stock too wet as the paper will break in the mold when you put it through the die cutting machine. If you do make it too wet, leave to dry until they are just moist just as you would when balling to bring shape to the petals with the tools. )  For the blue / green colored flowers, these are sprayed with the Lindy’s stamp gang sprays- Grab a Guy Gold, Hydrangea Blue, Ponderosa Pines Olive Spray also the cut away inner part of the eyelet frame that was put aside. Leave to dry a little, as the petals will still be too wet. When ready put these through the machine in the rose mold. Take the petals out of the molds with the aid of the piercer tool found in the flower shaping tool kit. Leave the shaped petals to dry completely. When dry, shape the centers so the petals cup up. Prick a hole in the petal center to you can thread the stamens through the opening.  The stamen colors used are the pink and the green fond in the bright pearl assortment bundle. Take three stamens, fold in half then thread the stems through the whole. Secure with at the back with the hot glue gun. The glue is cooled off, trim the excess stems away.


The card front:
Taking the Elegant Border Basics die set and chose the border used. Cut the lace boarders from the white card-stock to fit the butterfly border. Trim to fit the card front then apply colour with the Venation Orange archival ink and daubers. Taking the white card-stock, the Butterfly Border stamp, matching die and inks, stamp, colour then die cut the image twice. Trim one of the borders to fit across the card front. Bring colour to the butterflies of this border with the Garden Patina ink. Before adhering to the card front this border with the border lace together using 3d dots, align and stamp the sentiment taken from the Butterfly Kisses stamp set. For the 2nd butterfly border that was cut, apply colour to the butterflies using pinks blues and oranges listed in the product list that match. Fussy cut the butterflies away from the frame. Apply clear drying glue to the wings then dip in the glitter. When dry, make a fold at the wing base to give shape then adhere to the same shaped butterfly in the border with the hot glue gun or clear drying glue.

Support the photo by backing it with cardboard. Taking the paper sander, sand the edges to give a old worn look. Keep the cardboard off cuts to give the photo more height later when needed. Note the main photo has cracks in it. This is done buy folding the photo. You can leave this out if you cannot bear to do this.


To prepare the lace circles:
Taking the white card-stock and the round lace die and circle, die cut the lace circle x 2. Apply clear drying glue to the lace then dip it into the glitter.


To make the large butterfly: 
Taking the Fluttering Butterfly set find the butterfly used for this LO, the archival inks and the misti stamping tool. Apply one ink color at a time to the stamp where wanted then stamp. Apply the next color and repeat till you have the colored butterfly wanted. Repeat this x 3 for the 3 layers needed to make this butterfly. Die cut all 3 stamped butterflies. Fussy cut away the swirls and feelers of 2 butterflies. Adhere the butterflies together in layers with the 3d dots at the body. Curl the wings up a little so they will keep their height. The butterfly will be adhered to the LO with 3d dots at the body and wings of the 1rst layer only so you will not see the 3d dots.



To make the smaller butterfly swirls:
Taking the white card-stock, Butterfly Dreams stamp and die set and archival inks for color, make x2 of the last butterfly and 1 of the top butterfly.  Fussy cut to how it is shown in the LO photo. Apply clear drying glue to the wings and flower buds then dip them into the glitter. Put aside to dry. When dry fold the wings in half at the body to give shape.




I love how the roses looks using the paper foam. They are so fun to make!


To make the LO base and complete the LO:
Find the design paper in the collection with the large printed cage print. Taking one sheet of paper, trim the white label edge off and adhere with double sided tape and clear drying glue the cut to size cardboard from the pizza box to give the LO base to stay flat and strength to carry all the embellishments. Taking the stamp set Butterfly Kisses, chose the sentiment and mount on the stamping acrylic block, the Garden Patina ink, stamp the sentiment to the right foot of the LO. This same stamp will be used for the sentiment stamped with the hand around the embellishments clusters later. Taking the cage die from the Sweet Lilac Scroll and cage die set, die cut this a few times. Adhere together using the clear drying glue. Use the Garden Patina ink and a dauber to bring color to the cage. Adhere one of the lace circles and the cage to the upper right hand side of the LO as a base for the embellishment clustering. Adhere the photo in place adding cardboard behind the photo to give the height wanted. Arrange the roses and leaves around the photo. Stamp part of the sentiment as seen in the LO photo. Adhere the small butterflies above and below the photo.  Adhere the glitter lace circle and the main photo in place, again using cardboard to raise the photo to the height wanted. Adhere the large butterfly in place. Arrange the roses and leaves so they will support the butterfly wings and enhance the photo. Place and adhere the remaining small butterfly under the upper right of the photo. Using the sentiment stamp again with the hand, stamp half of the sentiment to the center right of the photo.

The silver color that will be left in the molds can be washed out after you are done. To protect your shaping mat, place a paper kitchen towel over the mat while in use. After the petals have been shaped with the flower mold using the flower shaping tools and mat to ball the flower centers.  The first 2 petals will be balled into a ball to form the peony center bud then the remaining 3 petals will be formed and adhered to surround the bud.

Taking one sheet of paper, trim the white label edge off and adhere with double sided tape and clear drying glue the cut to size cardboard from the pizza box to give the LO base to stay flat and strength to carry all the embellishments. Apply the mixed media paste using the mask. Put aside to air dry. When dry, spray the Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays over the paste pattern. Put aside to air dry. Taking the white card-stock and the round lace die and circle, die cut the lace circle x2. Apply clear drying glue to the lace then dip it into the glitter. While the glue is drying take the 2nd design paper, fussy cut the boarder and sentiment from the paper. Adhere cardboard to the back to raise the fussy cut from the LO base. Apply glitter to the sentiment lace edge. Arrange the lace circles and apply a little glitter to the center of the lace circle. Adhere the raised border to the LO base on top of the border print. Adhere the photo in place. Arrange and adhere with the hot glue gun the flowers and leaves as seen in the LO photo.  Last, place and adhere the butterflies in place.

I loved using the small die for the banner flags...they are so cute! Bring on the gesso and paint!


I sure had fun with this mask as the base for the page....
love to get my fingers all inked and gesso'd up.....lol


These poppy flowers from Heartfelt Creation came from an old project stash....this journalling is great to use up all the saved goodies that I don't want to throw out....lol
Making more room for the new stash....it never ends.


Don't you just love this stamp...yes I got to fussy cut and layer...not too much 3D or the journal will not close when put together.

....and in the mean time I'm having fun with out all the hard work....lol
I did this all in a 2 day span...got to allow drying time. Once I did the word stamping...I was very happy with my achievements....and I might add I love the background stamps that Sheena Douglas has designed for us....great size.


I hope this has inspired you to get all inked up and ready to go for the day...

Click HERE to see how to make these beautiful Peony's



Instructions:
The finished size of this box is 4.44” x 3.30” (11.3cm x 8.4cm). The smaller sized shadow box is used for this project. Taking the paper pad for this collection, find the print with the bricks on it. Cut this to fit all the sides, inside, front and back cover of the shadow box base. Taking the cut-mate-create die set, find the cutting die to fit the hole in the box. 2.5” x 3.5” Using the die cut the hole into the printed-paper so it will match the hole in the precut shadow box. Apply the walnut stain ink to all the edges of the box. Cut from the clear card stock to fit the box inside front. Adhere the clear card stock in place to close the hole in the box. Apply a little clear drying glue with the aid of a sponge to the edge of the box front and clear card stock. Sprinkle the glitter and leave to dry. Taking the printed-paper cut the box wrapper to fit the box. Ink the edges with the walnut stain ink Cut a matting from the pink card stock, ink the edges with the walnut stain ink. Adhere to the box wrapper with the 3d foam tape. Use the printed-paper cut from the box hole to mat the pink card stock. Before adhering in place, ink the edges. To make the flowers.: Taking the stamps and dies for the Sweet Peony’s, stamp using the Archival inks and white card-stock. Bring color to the stamped flower petals and leaves with the 3d stamping inks. This will give a beautiful metallic sheen to your flowers. Taking the crop-a-dile, make a small hole in the center of each petal. Using the flower shaping molds bring shape to the petals. Both the rose and basic flower-shaping molds were used for the peonies. The yellow stamens are used for the peony centers. Thread the stamens through the wholes as you stack the flower petal layers. See the video to see how this is done. Used the clear drying glue to apply the glitter to the flower petals then put aside to dry. For the lilacs they are stamped colored then die cut. Spritz with water then using the lilac flower mold to bring the shape to the petal. This saves so much time using the flower shaping molds. Make four of the lilac swirls as a base for the flower clusters. By stamping, coloring and die cutting , then trim to fit the corners of both the box and box wrapper. The flowers for the box are not 3d but are layered with beads adhered to the flower centers. Arrange and adhere as seen in the project photo. Do the same for the box wrapper. Adhere the ribbon to the box opening and tie the box closed with a bow.





You can put all sorts of goodies in this cute sweet and adorable gift box...a few deluxe chocolates would always be a winner....
