Queen Anne’s Lace and Roses

February 1, 2016

QA Lace and Roses 2

Christine here from Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s Design Team posting a card featuring Susan’s new Garden Notes Queen Anne’s Lace die along with Rose 2 from her first release of dies. Susan has so many fantastic dies.  I also used a couple of Els’s newly released dies, too: Fitted Frames 4 Curvy Ovals and Stitched Ovals.  It is funny how it seems that everything is “coming up roses” in the posts lately.

Here is how I made the card. I like to make all my components first before any assembling.  The card base is 5″ X 7″.

  1. Starting with the Queen Anne’s Lace die, cut 2 each of the flower bases for each flower (I did 3 flowers) from medium green cardstock.  Also cut several leaves and the stamen from the same cardstock.  From White Soft Finish Cardstock (85#) cut the florets about 8 times.  Using white PanPastels shade your leaves and flower bases to give them a muted look.  Put vein lines in the center of the leaves and pinch them up with fingers to give them dimension.  Attach 3 florets to each cross area on the flower bases using a clear drying glue.

Lay the flower bases on molding pad and use the small ball tool to cup each flower.

Attach the bases together starting with the largest, offsetting each one.  Form stamen and attach to center.

2.  To make Prill-covered branches cut the small branch dies from CountryScapes Woods 1 from green cardstock.  Cover the branches with clear drying glue and sprinkle Prills  – ‘Minnie Pearl’ over the glue. Tip: Use a toothpick to apply glue to the branches. Only a tiny amount of glue is needed.

3.  Cut 2 Oval Grapevine Wreaths from brown cardstock and cut apart for the branches, pinching them upward with fingers for dimension. Refer to the project photo to see how many you’ll need.

4.  Cut 3 roses and 3 extra buds from pink cardstock. Shade centers with Magenta PanPastels from Kit 1.  Cut leaves and stems from green cardstock and shade with Distress Ink.  Shape flowers and leaves using Susan’s great video found here

5.  Cut 1 oval using the  largest Stitched Oval die from green cardstock.

6.  Cut a set of ovals from Fitted Frames 4 Curvy Ovals from white cardstock.

7.  Cut 1 piece of patterned paper (pink and white striped used here) 4-3/4 X 6-3/4.

8.  Assemble card by attaching the patterned paper to the front of card base using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.  Attach green stitched oval to the center of patterned paper, then add the 2 largest ovals from the Curvy Oval set that was cut earlier. Finally, arrange and adhere the flowers and branches on the ovals as shown in the photo.

9. Make a Card Stand/Easel to mail with the card and to use for display.

    Thank you everyone for your kind words. Making the flowers is my passion some of the flowers take longer than others and I really do not keep track of the time.

    Kathleen, I’d be curious, too, but I’ve seen Susan Tierney-Cockburn demonstrate how to make her flowers in person and her students – including the total beginners – are always so surprised at how easy and fast they are, even if there are a lot of little pieces for some (like Queen Anne’s Lace). My own easy favorite is the Tulip.

    WOW! What a work of art and love. The detail in this card is absolutely wonderful. It should be framed! Thank you for sharing your art and all the detail of how you made this. There are so many ticks to the trade and we sometimes re-invent the wheel as other artist are not so happy to share their secrets of the techniques used. Thank you again for sharing.
