Creative Nugget: The edges on two pieces of Mixed Media paper were masked and the Belles Vignes corner was white embossed. Blue, Green, and Yellow Bisters were lightly sprinkled over the panel and spritzed with water. Both pieces were given time to air dry. You never know what you are going to get with the Bisters, but I love the resulting watercolor look. I chose the panel I liked best and cut it using the large rectangle from the Flourished Star Pattern Die Set, then mounted it on Basic Black card stock and a blue card base. Layered Lacey Square Dies were used to cut a frame from the second panel. Banners were cut from a scrap of Christmas 2014 Paper and other scraps from my stash that matched the panel using the Pennant Dies. These were attached across the frame. The sentiment from the Belles Vignes set was white embossed on a vellum banner and woven through the frame. Blue and Black Bisters were used on another scrap of Mixed Media paper. The Swallow Tail butterfly from the Trois Jolies Papillons stamp set was stamped onto this using Archival Jet Black ink and then cut with the matching Tres Papillons die. The butterfly was added with foam tape to finish the card.
Several of the new stamp sets and dies were used to create a Pop-Up Box for my second project.
Creative Nugget: After cutting and scoring my box, the panels were covered with green card stock and papers from the Blooming Garden Collection. The Zinnia was also stamped on pieces of Blooming Garden papers and it and the leaves were cut with the matching Zinnia and Leaves Dies. The Fancy Foliage Dies were used to cut a leafy flourish which was mounted along with the zinnia to the front of the card. The sentiment from the Belles Vignes stamp set was stamped onto a Mini Tag die cut and tied to the seam binding holding the card closed. Micro beads were added to the center of the zinnia using Glossy Accents.
The card opens to reveal a Bee Balm and Butterfly garden!
The Grass Border Die was used to line each section of the box. The sentiment from Belles Vignes was stamped on a Clouds & Raindrops die cut and attached to the box with a small strip of acetate. Copic Markers were used to color the Bee Balm and butterflies from the Trois Jolies Papillons and Butterfly and Bugs stamp sets. The Bee Balm was fussy cut and added randomly to different layers in the box. The butterflies were cut with the matching Tres Papillons and Butterfly & Bugs Dies and attached to the box on strips of acetate. Several other clouds and a seam binding bow finish the box.
