It is the 5th day of Spring and it looks like winter outside with all this lovely SNOW!!  Here in Minnesota we got 13 inches Sunday night and are expecting another 2 to 4 inches tonight!!  You just NEVER know the weather here, until you look out.

So for this reason I hope to post my last winter creation today.  I used Sweet Snowgirl by Stampendous.  They have such darling stamps, go and buy some (maybe make them Spring stamps).

Guest Designer JustRite Papercrafts - Day Two - 3-D Floral

Here I am today to say Hello!  Thank you so much Kellie from JustRite Papercrafts for having me as your Guest Designer.  You need to check her store out, so many fun things for your craft room, stop over and buy, buy, buy to make fabulous creations like the one below!!

Another 3-D creation using Sentimental Flowers by JustRite Papercrafts.  I stamped the long leafy floral stamp four times and colored them with Copic markers.  I cut them all apart and laid them in a pretty floral arrangement.  

The sentiment is from this same set that I stamped onto Classic Ovals. The basket was made with an embossing folder Cane Weave, using Classic Circles and cut in half .  The background die is retired and all of these are from Spellbinders Paper Arts.

Next, I used pop dots to lift the flowers and basket to give them the 3-D effect. Finally I added yellow pearls to the centers of flowers, matted with a golden yellow and glued to green cardstock.

Project Recipe:
Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts Cane Weave, Classic Oval and Classic Circles
Paper: Bazzil White, Tan, Golden Yellow and Green

Guest Designer for JustRite Papercrafts - 3-D Floral

I am thrilled to have been asked to be Guest Designer for today and tomorrow for JustRite Papercrafts.  There are so many wonderful stamps and dies to add to your collection.  Spring is just around the corner and I wanted to make a creation with one of the many floral stamps sets.

The creation for today is to take one floral stamp and make it 3-D.  I used  Circle of Love Vintage Labels Three.  I stamped this bunch of flowers eight times, colored with Copic markers and cut four of them all apart.  Next I rolled them with a stylus to make the petals look real. 

The background is an embossing folder Framed Canvas by Spellbinders Paper Arts on white cardstock.  I added a Want 2 Scrap Nestabling  Labels Twenty to the background.

Then I glued down  the four bunches of flowers you didn't cut apart, all facing outwards.  The sentiment is Graceful Sentiments by JustRite Papercrafts.  I curved my sentiment with a pencil and laid it down over the center of the flowers to hide the stems.  Next, I started to glue down the flowers with pop dots to give them a lift and make them 3-D. 

Finally I added pink pearls to the center of my flowers, added a pink matte and glued down on soft green cardstock.

See you tomorrow for another 3-D floral creation!!
