Painted Blooms: One Sheet Six Cards!

Yes, you read the title right; one sheet of Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper will yield you six cards! They aren’t the fanciest, but it’s a great way to fill up your card stash with birthday, get well, thank you and any occasion cards. I’ll feature one card each day this week and two on Friday!painted bloom one sheet finalTo make the cards, you first have to cut the sheet of the Painted Blooms designer paper into 4″ x 6″ pieces. Some of these will need to be trimmed down, depending on the card you’re making. But this is where it all begins.

Painted Bloom One Sheet Wonder

Painted Bloom Happy HealingThe first card I’m sharing is from the top right piece of the Painted Blooms paper.

 

Cut an A-2 card base from Blackberry Bliss card stock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and score it at 4-1/4″

 

Cut a 5-1/4″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Strawberry Slush

 

And, cut down the piece of the Painted Blooms DSP to  5″ x 3-1/2″

 

With the Corner Punch round the top right and bottom right corners on the Blackberry Bliss card base, the Strawberry Slush and the Painted Blooms DSP

 

In Blackberry Bliss Ink stamp your sentiment. For this card, the sentiment, “Happy Healing”  from the And Many More stamp set, which by the way is loaded with lots of greetings, was used.

 

Now Just affix all the layers with SNAIL Adhesive and one card is done.

 

If you cut both same sheets of the Painted Blooms DSP, make two of each card. You can even leave them blank and stamp in the sentiments as you need them.

 

See you tomorrow!

Big Shot: Flower Daisies Die

Back before Easter, I ran across these Daisies made using Stampin’ Up! Big Shot Flower Daisies Die, now retired 🙁  I had all the card stock cut for a workshop that never took place, because of the house fire. On Sunday I pulled out the flowers and we made these fun daisies.

 

Big Shot Flower Daisies

 

For the daisy flowers you can use any color combinations. I used So Saffron, Perfect Plum, Pool Party, Very Vanilla, Garden Green and Island Indigo.

 

Big Shot Flower Paper DaisiesFor each daisy you need to cut two of all three sizes on the Big Shot Flower Daisies Die. For the smallest daisy I mixed two different colors. Adhere the same size flower to the other. Line them up, so the flower petals are in between the other. Punch out a 1″ Circle and adhere it to the back of the largest flower pair. I used Garden Green Card Stock for this. On the top of the smallest daisy adhere a 1/2″ Circle. Put all three flower sizes together with Dimensionals.

 

Big Shot Paper Flower Daisy

Take a wooden skewer and a Garden Green Marker. With the brush end of the marker color the skewer.  Rip some thin long leaves out of Garden Green Card Stock. Adhere them with a Glue Dot. Trim down the skewer, so all the daisies are different heights for visual appeal.

 

To assemble the flower, poke the wooden skewer from the back through the Dimensionals. Add a bit of Tombow Multi Purpose Glue to secure.

 

For the flower center punch out a 3/4″ Circle and adhere it with another Dimensional. Arrange all the petals either up or down for a natural look.

Try making these for center-pieces or leave the stems off and use the daisies to embellish your cards, boxes, scrap book pages or frames. These would make a great summer party favor. Just sayin’…

 

As ever, Stampin’ Hugs and thanks for stopping by!
