|My desk, the other night .. was making some daisies with Upsy Daisy die by MFT .. deciding to venture into the world of flowers but going for the flatter ones as they as are easy to post. Rounded these a little in the assembling - with the rounding tool (centre), on the grey foam mat on the right, bought when started 3D card these tools. |
To Shape Daisies etc: Gently twirl the Daisy petals and leaves, using your fingers and the shaping tool (some use bone folder, I prefer tool), this help turn them under to shape them and also pop the layers up little with silicone glue as with 3D image making. I also rounded the centre a little too, before popping it up on little silicone glue (Click and see here one I use).
Used also the 1 1/4" EK Success punch on some DP Black and white, bought many years ago now.
|Desk this morning and pretty much now. Just noticed my wee WOYWW board is upside down, and both monkeys are waving hi! Using the fav. cardstock of the moment, Hammer cardstock on this card with a digi birthday greeting, formatted in Word doc. Flowers more shaped also have leaves cut but not on them; sorting out the layout, which is a CAS from Pinterest - here|
please note, not an ATC in site for 4 weeks from now for WOYWW312
|I do have a card to share with you, made for a very dear aunt's birthday, yesterday. Used SB Divine Eloquence. Used disc. DP roses (as aunt is a rose fan too) inked up softly the cardstock while still in die, and MB Lavish branch on the side, with pearls for added pretty! |
Layered up in Portrait style so it will stand nicely for later if needed. See my Pinterest Divine Eloquence for this card and others.
|Verse from Luke 10:27 - had to mask reference so it would fit inside smallest die, embossed in gold Stamp says is 1994 Annette Allen Watkins on side. |
The greatest commandment the LORD Jesus says is to Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart... and thy neighbour as thyself.. a beautiful reminder. Over at Our Daily Bread the challenge is to use scripture so will be entering this card for it.
