Blog Hop - Take Time to Delight & E-Z Dots Runner


Welcome to our blog hop with Scrapbook Adhesives, makers of quality and creative adhesives!  Thanks for dropping by.
Yogi here and here is my Spring project:
 
I cut my white cardstock (5"h x 11"w), scored and folded  similar to this diagram but changed the height to 5". Scored at the 5" mark on the left of the 11" side of my cardstock. Then scored the diagonal line.

Folded the front flap in and layered another piece of white cardstock that was decorated below, the same size as the base of the floor and adhered to the front flap (see gluing area on the above diagram "glue front here").

I love the dots from the Scrapbook Adhesive E-Z Dots runner. I applied vertical lines on my white cardstock and sprinkled with various colors of Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter (Chartreuse, Gold, Celadon & Peridot), burnished well.

Adhered the small 3D foam adhesive squares and applied Green Variegated gold leaf to them and brushed of the excess using the brush that comes in the Perfect Pearls set.

Then adhered the narrow ribbon in 2 shades of green using the Crafty Power Tape.

Embossed the right side  using Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" folder. As mentioned above adhered this layer to the front of my side easel card.


 Stamped the quote (masking of the two words "the Season") using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Die cut with Spellbinders "Pearl Effects Card Creator", sponged Distress "Forest Moss" around the edges and adhered to card front - off set -  using the larger of the 3D foam squares.

Stamped the daffodils (Art-Kure "Daffodils") twice on white cardstock using the black. Colored with Prisma colored pencils, then fussy cut the 1st stamped image all around. Fussy cut the 2nd stamped image, but only the individual petals (one at a time), and used a large balled stylus to shape the petals on a piece of fun foam. Dipped the edge that falls in the center of the flower in some glue and adhered to 1st stamped flower. Repeated till all petals were adhered.

Used a strip of quilling paper and crimped it prior coiling and allowing the coil to loosen, adhered the end and then adhered the coil to the flower center. Adhered the flower to the card front - off set again.

Die cut the lady bugs (eCraft Designs). Colored the body with a black Zig writer, then the wings with Distress,  "Persimmon" or "Mustard Seed" and clear embossed. Adhered the wings to the body and on to the card.

Embossed the floor of the card using Couture Creations Romantique Series "Breeze" and sponged some Moss over the high points.

Calligraphed and created the eCut the word "Spring" from white cardstock including a shadow layer. Applied Distress pads direct to paper in the Mustard, Persimmon & Picked Raspberry, then added some of these colors to a craft mat. Misted the eCut with water to blend some of the color and then smeared it carefully on the wet craft mat, dried. Repeated till I got the right concentration of color. Applied Versamark all over the colored letters and clear embossed.

Ran the shadow layer through my Zyron, burnished well to remove the overspill of the glue, adhered my colored letters then sprinkled with Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter "Java Bean". Burnished and wiped off the excess. Adhered to floor of card with the small 3D foam squares.

Very pretty card Yogi. I love those daffodils, they're my favourite spring flower. They are so dimensional in real life, I always found this difficult to portray on a card. I never thought of using quilled corrugated centres to make it more 3D. It works really well. Great idea!

Sue D said...

So pretty and love how you used glitter on the tape runner dots.

Iris said...

Amazing - love the daffodils.
