Orchid

Spring has sprung and in the NY area, there are flower shows popping up everywhere. This included the Orchid Show at the NY Botanical Gardens. I've never gotten a chance to go, but I'd love to see it some day. In honor of that, here is a card I made using the Tall Orchid Stencil from Dreamweaver Stencils.

Supplies:
Stampendous:
DWLL3006: Tall Orchid Stencil
V327: Sun and Rain Stamp
50445: Detail White Embossing Powder
VM001: VersaMark Ink

Others:
Zig Clean Color Markers: 044, 045, 050, 051, 082
Canson Mixed Media Paper
Bazzill: Snapdragon
My Colors: Brown Eyes, Fireflies
Creative Impressions Robbon 1/4" Mini Check Yellow & White Gingham- #80172
Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dy Glue
Scrapbook Adhesieves: White Foam Squares
EK Success: Corner Rounder
Dark Green Cardstock: unknown


Directions:
1. Tape stencil to Mixed Media Paper. Color the stencil in with the Zig Markers listed above. Remove stencil and crop.

2. Create a mat of Fireflies cardstock to the size of 5 1/2" x 2 1/4." Cut a strip of Snapdragon cardstock to the size of 4" x 2." Make the card base out of Brown Eyes to the size of 5 1/2" x 8."

3. Using the Sun & Rain stamp, stamp a piece of dark green cardstock with VersaMark ink. Sprinkle Detail White Embossing Powder on top, shake off the excess and heat emboss. Using a Corner Rounder, round the upper left and lower right.

4. Cut a piece of ribbon, as listed above, and adhere to the Snapdragon piece, about a 1/4" from the bottom using Zip Dry Glue. Wrap the edges around the cardstock to give it a cleaner look.

5. Attach all layers to the card base with Zip Dry, except for the sentiment. Attach that with foam squares.

Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
