~ now for the tutorial you have been waiting for ~ 


Start by cutting chipboard pieces and attach with score tape to 9 1/8″ x 7 5/8″ coloured card stock.  Line up chipboard to score lines.  Cut corners on an angle to remove excess bulk.  Add more score tape and fold score lines over chipboard, burnish.


Use tape runner or score tape and add 7 1/4″ x 5 3/4″ coloured card stock.
Attach patterned paper (3″ x 5.5″) to coloured card stock (5 3/4″ x 3 1/4″). Attach one to back cover set the other aside. 
Add score tape and glue to ribbon and add attach to front cover.  I wanted my ribbon showing at the back but not the front.  You can add the ribbon under the front and the back if you want.

Attach the set aside panel and add a scalloped square with the stamped sentiment.

Attach with glue runner or score tape the 2 3/4″ 2 3/4″ patterned paper panels to the 3′ x 3.5″ scored panels.

 

Using score tape line up panels on the right inside.  Working your way down lining up one at a time butt each panel below the one above.  The very first one I used a die cut square from white card stock instead of patterned paper because I wanted to add an image.
Add patterned paper 3″ x 5.5″ to inside left and attach pocket.
Die cut and colour flowers and Doily.  Arrange on front cover.

Technique Tuesday Cattails Stamp

Every month Technique Tuesday releases a floral stamp to their greenhouse society stamps and this month its gorgeous cattails. I loved how this filled the front of a card and with some very simple colouring you can create multiple of these cards quickly.

Heart Strings Crafting Dies

Both cards were coloured in copics with some distress oxide ink blended backgrounds. Using nested died I was able to create lots of layers and texture. I finished the one by wrapping twine around multiple times and finished with a paper flower and sprigs of heart strings from the heart strings die set.

Be Mine

This weeks theme at La-La Land Crafts is all about hearts and love. I didn’t want to do the traditional red heart theme so I stepped out of the box with this sweet duck holding his single flower. By going less traditional this card really could be used any time of year and not just for valentines.

Here is the steps to create this card.

Step 1 – Die cut a large and medium scallop panel from white card stock. The smaller scallop panel stamp in your ink choice the hearts forever background stamp.

Step 2 – Stamp sentiment on scalloped circle die cut and cut a portion off the scallop towards the bottom to create a half circle.

Step 3 – Add leaves, duck, and heart wreaths to the smaller panel. Glue down and add twine around it. Adhere to large scallop panel. Glue to your card base.
