Hibicus Flower Shaping & Card

I am a Guest Designer at Cut@Home  I made a card and shaped hibiscus flowers using the new Heartfelt Creations Under The Sea Collection.

This is the card I made. To see the VIDEO (I removed Cut@Home blog link since they are now closed)

Project Instructions:

Start with a 10” X 7” card base scored at 5” for a side folding card. I have a video here:

Stamp the Tropical Hibiscus Cling Stamp Set  HCPC-3736  use Versamark embossing ink.  Add Ranger Platinum embossing powder and melt with a heat gun tool.  I used a Clorox stylus to color the leaves with Cracked Pistachio Distress ink (any sponge would work).  I use the side of the stylus to add the veining. Color the flowers with Picked Raspberry in the center and Scattered Straw on the tips. Shape the flowers as Emma Lou shows here:   Once done add Prills to stain tips and flower centers.  used Go Man Go.

Cut the 2 larger Spellbinders Decorative Labels dies on white cardstick the color the edges with a brown ink. I used Vintage Photo Distress ink. cut a background layer from Designer paper (I used a teal from All Geared up) and glue to the card base. Glue on the burlap ribbon a little higher then center. Glue on the largest die the add more pattern paper the size and shape of the die interior (Trace the inside of the die on the pattern paper and cut). Adhere medium die frame with pop dots.

From the Under The Sea Paper Collection select a small scene that will fit inside your smallest frame. Enhance the scene by adding Wink Of Stella to the fish. Add glue the coral and sprinkle on red Flowersoft (or something with texture like Prills). I diet the turtle and shells from the Under The Sea Paper Collection. Cover the turtle and shells with Glossy Accents. Cut the smallest die from the Decorative Labels and add a sentiment.

Place the flowers in the lower left corner. Dries As Clear glue works great.
