Foliage to Flowers Part 1

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend, today I have a card and a video tutorial to share with you.  Did you know that you can use Spellbinders foliage dies to make flowers?


Materials used: Spellbinders Foliage S4-328, Foliage Two S5-129, Charmed I'm Sure S4-399, On the Edge S5-168 and Bitty Blossoms S5-086 printer paper, Lemon Yellow Liquid Pearls, Sunshine Yellow Flower Soft, Woodware Medium Flower punch, Silver, white, pink, green and yellow card, String, Grey acrylic paint, Olympia Green Versafine Ink and Penny Black Transparent sets Charms 30-173 and;  Summer Fun 30-107 and finally Paper Shapez watering can template  (I am so excited as I had submitted this and a few other templates to this site to see if they liked them and they are trying them out - see below for sneak peaks of other designs I have done for them that they have bundled in their pack).

Cut the watering can template from metallic silver card; tip: I print the template and then make a version using quilters plastic, that way I can quickly draw or cut round it on any type of card - especially thicker card that won't go through the printer, add embellishments cut from strips of on the edge die and then dry paint (paintbrush is almost dry with very little paint on) the sides with grey acrylic to give a dimensional appearance as below.


Then create the bitty blooms from pink card and a daisy like flower (see video for instructions on how this was made) and attach to card front.


Cut a tag using charms and stamp edge and sentiment, attach to handle with string to finish.

I will be back with more foliage inspiration later in the week, until then happy Monday!

Here are preview peaks of the other templates that I have done in the set on the Papershapez site here.
