Lavender Wreath Spray (Sizzix Framelit, Memory Box, Martha Stewart)


I was so excited to use my new Sizzix Framelit Embossing folder, it really creates a beautiful pattern on the paper.  I paired the frame with Memory Box Fabulous Phlox , Norland Flower, and several Fiskars and E.K. Success flowers and tucked  Martha Stewart green Fern and Branch leaves under them.  Then using the Purple Stickles I dotted the center of each flower and added Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer to create a dew look.  To balance the card I added a Cheery Lynn Lace Corners Deco F to each corner and matted under the white cardstock with a nice purple cardstock.

To create the Center Ring use both the Spellbinders Standard Circles so you get a nice ring shape, add mounting tape under ring and center it on the card.  It really makes the card pop when completed.

Materials:
Frame - Sizzix Framelits Textured Impressions Ornament Set #2
Flowers - Memory Box Fabulous Phlox & Norland Flower
Flowers - Fiskars Medium Flower Punch & E.K. Success Daisy Punch
Leaves - Martha Stewart Branch & Fern Leaf punch
Corner Die - Cheery Lynn Designs Lace Corner Deco F
Ranger Ink Purple Stickles
Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer
Ring Shape - Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circles ( 2¾″ & 2⅜″)
Mounting Tape & Glue

The Curious Cat (Memory Box)


 I really enjoy making greeting cards that tell a story and I thought and all white card would be fun to create.  So today my card is about the curious cat, perched on a fence deciding how to reach the butterflies nestled in the Oak tree.

To create the frame die cut the larger Labels Four and then use the smaller one to cut out the frame.  Apply mounting tape to the back of frame.  After die cutting the Oak tree, emboss with wood grain folder, apply Crystal Lacquer and let dry.  Attach Fence to back of frame, then Oak tree, add cat in front to frame, and use small amount of mounting tape to bike before attaching.  Sprinkle butterflies around tree and finish with bird.

Materials:
Memory Box Grand Oak Tree, Picket Fence, Bicycle, Curious Cat & Nestled Bird
Spellbinders M-Bossabilities WoodGrain Folder
Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Labels Four (4⅜ x 6⅞″ & 3⅞ x 6″)
Marvy small Butterfly punch
Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer
Mounting Tape & Glue
