Spellbinders Design Team ~ Floral Gratitude By Lynn Lewis

Spellbinders Design Team ~ Floral Gratitude By Lynn Lewis | Craftmania

Hello again :-)

I'm back with another creation with these beautiful Spellbinders dies.....

Today we are revisiting these two die sets -

We'll focus on making the Daisy Chrysanthemums today, having done the buttons on the last blog!!

Step 1

▪️Cut out your Eyelet Lace frames in White Maya Card; you will need the back piece, the middle piece and the top.

I personally prefer to use Maya Card as it is a crisp white, quite sturdy, plus it goes perfectly with the lovely Pale Pink Maya Card.

▪️You will need to cut out to back them with as you can see 📸

I stuck all the pink pieces behind them, and then stuck them on top of each other in layers so it’s flat.

It’s quite a simple layout.

Step 2

▪️Take an 8x8 white card blank and cut it down to 14.5cm x 20cm

Stick your layered Eyelet Frame on top so that it opens on the side.

Step 3

▪️Cut out 18 of the largest flowers and 6 of the largest leaves.

I coloured my flowers with Distress Inks - using Kitsch Flamingo for the centre half of the pink flowers, and Spun Sugar for the petal edges.

▪️For the purple flowers I used Seedless Preserves for the centres, and Milled Lavender

for the petal edges.

➡️ You will need 4 full pink flowers, 2 full purple flowers

📝 NOTE : There are 3 flower layers per full flower

You will also need 10 little yellow stars for each the flower centres, so cut these out of yellow card.

Step 4

▪️Shape your flower layers by lightly spraying a mist of water on the back.

▪️Take your reverse tweezers and place them onto each petal, pinching up around them as was done on the last card.

▪️Then using a Ball Tool, press into the centres then set aside to dry so they set into the shape you've created.

Step 5

Colour your leaves...

I had already coloured mine from the last card I made, so they were done with a green alcohol pen.

▪️I folded them in half and then using a cotton bud, I wiped Shabby Shutters Distress Oxide Ink along the centre fold.

▪️If you have a leaf tool you can make the veins in the leaves. If not, you can make them with a blunt Pokey Tool (just remember not to press too hard).

Then take a ball tool and shape underneath the leaves.

Step 6

▪️Stick your flowers together by adding a little glue in the centre of each layer.

▪️Take the little yellow stars and a very small Ball Tool or tweezers. Pop a small blob of glue on a tile or mat, and gently press in the centres of the flowers layering as well!

TIP - Susan suggests little blobs of glue on them as well and sprinkling with some pollen.

I thought if you are hoarding any yellow/orange flower soft that would do the trick.

Next stick the completed flowers and leaves onto the card as seen.

Step 7

▪️Take 2 pieces of lovely pink ribbon from Craftmania and make a bow using both together so that you have a double bow that stands out much better!!

▪️Stick this to the top right corner of the card.

TIP - I use a little blob of hot glue to place the bow on, however you can use glue if you are willing to wait :-)

Step 8

Finish up with a sentiment

I chose "Thank You" from Jamie Rodgers Sentiments Collection which I coloured with

Kitsch Flamingo (the same colours as the centres of the pink flowers)

Adhere it directly to the card centre.

Step 9

Extra finishing touches.....

You probably need a decorative box, like the one I made in my Autumn Colours Blog.

You can find out how I made it on this Blog post, along with all the measurements.

I hope you've enjoyed this.... I'd would love to know if you make your own.
