Hi there! It’s Sara here today, and I have a new project for you featuring ModaScrap products.
I love watercolors and it’s always a good occasion to try something new: today I die cut all the pieces from a piece of watercolor paper and then coloured everything with watercolors.
Here are the steps:
Prepare a base for your card and add some splatters with a black ink.
For the belt you need to partial die cut a piece of kraft cardstock, put your cardstock in the big shot leaving outside the finish part of the die and the rest of the cardstock, repeat the same process on the other side.
Die cut all the leaves and the poppies, colour them.
Glue all the pieces down to the belt and add a bow made with rope.
Hello & Welcome! Samantha here. Today’s card is one of those cards that once you’ve put it all together, you love it so much you’d rather frame it then give it away! Well that’s how I feel about it anyways…
Step 1: Use both the Frame It – Stitched Rectangle and Frame It – Stitched Square die as shown below to create a ‘photo’ frame die cut.
Step 2: Stamp the Sentiment.
Step 3: Using shades of green cardstock and pattern paper die cut several leaves from Tropical Florals and Trio of Leaves.
Step 4: Arrange the leaves on a card front measuring 12.5cm x 17.5cm. When you are happy with the placement of the leaves adhere them down. Use foam tape to adhere the ‘photo’ frame die cut.
(Optional) Add machine stitched details
Step 5: Die cut the zebra and Giraffe die – assemble these as shown, tucking them behind the ‘photo’ frame die cut.
Step 6: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to white card stock and die cut the hat and glasses from the Party Accessories die set.
Step 6: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (in Royal Blue and Fruscia). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. Complete assembling the party accessories.
Step 7: Adhere the Party Accessories to the die cut animals. Adhere card front to a 5″ x 7″ card base. Embellish with googly eyes, sequins and a twine bow.
I love how this card came together – I think I’m going to have to buy a frame for it! The safari animals are that cute, I don’t think I could part with the card. Do you have projects that you end up just keeping for yourself?
Hi there! It’s Suzanne here today with a phrase that could easily have been said by my mother! Sage advice.
This card with its words of encouragement is just plain fun to make! You’ll enjoy experimenting with the technique. I was after a dark milky way look, but you could have a bright sky look instead. Just play!
Flooding season has officially arrived here and this year it’s been awful, even more than usual. Reading on the hydrangea, I learned that the name is derived from Greek and means ‘water vessel’, which is in reference to the shape of its seed capsules. With this post, I wish to extend my compassion to everyone who feels heartaches having to deal with an infuriated Mother Nature and I’m offering them those mini water vessels.
Here are the steps to make this card:
Step 1: Card base
Use a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock, 12 X 6, folded in half to make a 6 X 6 card.
With a purple patterned paper, cute a square piece 5 1/2 X 5 1/2.
Die cut a circle with the the largest die of the Dotted Scallop Circles (#1172) dies set, in a purple cardstock.
Die cut a second circle with the the second largest die of the Stitched Circles (#1116) dies set, in a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock
Using the same purple cardstock as for the first circle, die cut the Flower Lace 2 (#1383).
With some Double Sided Adhesive Tape and some Kids Choice Glue, adhere all the layers on top of each other, like shown in the next picture.
And here’s the final card base:
Step 2 Hydrangea
For a very detailed and wonderful video from Susan Tierney Cockburn on how to create those forgeous flowers, I invite you to watch the video on the link here.
Using the die set Garden Notes Hydrangea 2 (#1293), die cut 6 times the center that will be use for the base of each of the three flowers, in a green cardstock.
With the medium size ball stylus (from the 4 Pieces All Metal Tool Set), on the Molding Pad, create a dome with each of the 6 pieces.
Glue the bases two by two, using a toothpick and some Kids Choice Glue, to get 3 final center pieces.
Cut the stem off, we do not use them for this card.
Ink up some White Soft Finish Cardstock using some Oxide Ink, (here I used some Dusty Concord), dabbing very lightly the dauber on both side of the cardstock.
Die cut the 4 times the plate of little flowers on the inked cardstock.
Shape the little flowers on a Molding Pad. with the smallest ball stylus, wrong side up, on each of the 4 tips of the flowers.
Turn the flowers on the right side and cup up with the same stylus.
Glue the green domes on the card base and had the little flowers to cover the domes.
With a make-up applicator, had some shading in the heart of some flowers, with the Bright Yellow Green Shades Pan Pastel.
Add a very small touch of glue here and there in some centers of the flowers and sprinkle some small green prills.
Using some green cardstock, die cut the leaves 5 or 6 times each.
On the Leaf Pad, with the leaf tool, draw some vein on the wrong side.
Bent the leaves and add some Bright Yellow Green Pan Pastel on the vein with a make-up applicator.
Add some shading with a dark green ink on the edges of each leaf.
On the Molding Pad, give some dimension to the leaves by rubbing them on the tip with the medium ball stylus.
Glue them on the project.
And here’s a closer look at the final project:
I really hope you like this tutorial, thanks for visiting!

Add the vein to the leaves, using the leaf tool and the leaf pad. And then with the ball tool and the molding pad add more curving details. Use all the several leaves from different Garden Notes Sets.
