Instructions:
Card size: 6 X 6 1/4".  Basically I’ve combined a center fold card with an easel card.  Both are shaped with the Majestic Swirl Frames.  Part of the easel base top has to be cut a little, as needed, to go with the center step when glued together.  Cut 2 outer Majestic Swirl out of decorative paper, glue 1 to the easel base bottom, the other is cut into pieces to fit the sides and bottom of step card front.  Cut another piece of decorative paper for the center of the step card front.

Die cut with white, the next decorative die in the Majestic Swirl X 2. Glue 1 to the easel bottom and cut the second 1 to fit step card bottom and sides.  Cut 2 of the rectangles of the Majestic Swirl out of white.  Stamp 1 of the rectangles at the top with Best Wishes.   Cut 2 corners of the Ornate Pockets out of white.  Glue the 2 corners and the stamped rectangle to the center of the step card.  Glue the other rectangle to the easel bottom.

 
Run a line of pearls around the rectangles top and bottom of card.  Add some pearls to the decorative corner pieces as well.  Stamp the Congrats! Using Magenta Hue on decorative paper tag then die cut.  Stamp the Bud Branch using black Memento and color with Copics.  Stamp leaves with Fern Green, sponge with Leaf Green, die cut then sponge backs.  Stamp Magnolias (3 per flower) using the medium and large Magnolia with Magenta Hue, sponge in the centers, die cut, sponge the backs lightly.  Run the leaves and flowers through with the Shaping mold.  Glue 3 blossoms per flower together and pierce centers.  Large bud at the top is only 1 layer.  Sponge the stamen with Magenta Hue then insert into flowers.

Arrange flowers and leaves on the step card left side, add a sheer ribbon bow.  Cut another Bud Branch out of foam sheet and glue colored branch onto it (this will be the easel “stop”).  Glue it to the easel bottom at a point that holds the card open at the right angle for display.  Add the tag sentiment and another sheer bow at the right side under branch.

Use Crystal Clear to glitter the flowers and Crystal Ultrafine to randomly glitter card top and bottom. Mix shimmer and lacquer together to paint the leaves. The back flap of the step card can be used to write a personal message, it can’t be seen from the front.

Thanks for visiting today!

Matthew 28:1-8

28 Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone [a]from the door, and sat on it. His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men.

But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you.”

So they went out quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to bring His disciples word.

Card size: 5 X 7”.  Cut white cardstock to 7 X 10 and fold.  Cut gold 5 X 7” then glue to card front.  Cut decorative paper 4 7/8 X 6 7/8”, glue to gold front.  Cut round center of the Rounded Window Frame, the Lattice Swirl Gateway, a round frame for window cut out and a small circle for sentiment frame out of gold.  Place gold Gateway Swirl onto front along with window frame made with the gold, lightly draw inside gold circle frame with a pencil remove die cuts and use the same scallop circle used to cut the inside of circle frame to cut the front circle window.  Now glue the gold circle frame around cut out.  Glue the Lattice Swirl Gateway die cut to front. 

Cut another piece of decorative paper (from the same sheet) for the inside of card, glue.  Glue the gold Rounded Window Frame circle to the inside of card so that it shows up in the window.  Then glue the gold sentiment frame/mat to the center.  Stamp sentiment with embossing ink then emboss with Gold embossing powder.  Die cut with smallest circle, glue to the gold circle mat.

 Stamp and die cut butterflies from the Spring Daffodil Stamp and Die sets using Deep Purple and Buttercup then sponge.

Shape the blossoms and glue them to the Hyacinth flowers using a glue gun (for quick set), to the corresponding colors (yellow to yellow, etc.)

Glue the 3 flowers onto card so that all the stems overlap at the bottom left corner (trim stems as needed to fit).  Fill centers of all blossoms with yellow Prills and glitter flowers.

Glitter card (try to avoid gold) and butterflies.  Add rhinestone heads to the butterflies and glue the top left butterfly to the card but pop up the bottom right butterfly so that its head is up on flower.

Mark


16 Now when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, that they might come and anoint Him. Very early in the morning, on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen. And they said among themselves, “Who will roll away the stone from the door of the tomb for us?” But when they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away—for it was very large. And entering the tomb, they saw a young man clothed in a long white robe sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed.
But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him. But go, tell His disciples—and Peter—that He is going [a]before you into Galilee; there you will see Him, as He said to you.”

New Flower Happy Birthday

Good morning!
Today I've used the Hyacinth and the Daffodil to make 
completely different flowers.
At the bottom I've used the Daffodil bottoms only to make
one new flower and the tops to make a different flower.
The daffodil tops make a cute bell flower.
The bottoms make any number of pretty petaled flowers.
The hyacinth blossoms do very well making 
small filler flowers.

Instructions:

Card size: 4 5/8 X 7 1/8”.  Cut cardstock 7 ¼ X 11, fold in half then cut with the Lattice Flourish Die leaving the left side off the fold.  Cut another front from white and a lavender decorative paper front.  Cut the decorative die from silver and glue it onto the lavender.  Glue the silver Happy Birthday to the opening of the decorative die.

Stamp Hyacinth blossoms, the Daffodils (small), and butterflies using an aqua ink (I used Spa),   sponge with aqua and Chartreuse, die cut and shape in the molds.  All the flowers on this card are made from the Hyacinth and Daffodils stamps and dies just rearranged to make new flowers.  The daffodil bottoms form the large flowers using the pollen stamen in the centers.  The daffodil tops form another flower with the Rose Hip Stamen and medium Pearl Stamen for centers.  The Hyacinth blossoms form the rest of the flowers with Rock Candy stamen died purple  Stamp leaves with Fern Green and sponge with Leaf Green, die cut and shape in mold.  Stamp and die cut 2 small zinnia using Fern Green, sponge with Leaf Green and use for Sepals under the cup flowers.

Arrange large flowers in the left bottom corner then add the 2 cup flowers and leaves.  Glue the small Hyacinth blossom flowers with purple stamen around the left side and top then fill in with leaves.  Glitter all the flowers.  Mix gloss with shimmer additive and paint the leaves with the mix.

Thanks for visiting today!

Have you ever felt like you have done things that just can't be forgiven?  Most of us have, I certainly have but not anymore.  When you realize that God loves you so much and wants you with Him forever that He sent His Son to "pay for your sins" Himself by dying for us then you know that you can be forgiven and you can become a new person inside.  I have experienced this super love, this fantastic freedom, this miracle of the heart.  God says in His word that if you believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus is the Christ and that He died and rose again from the dead (which there are many witnesses of that fact) then you will be saved and your sins (EVERYONE has sinned) will be forgiven never to be remembered by Him again! Below is just 1 small portion of scripture but believe me, there is a ton, to reassure you of His love.

John 3:15-17

15 that whoever believes in Him should [c]not perish but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

Card size: 4 3/4 X 6 3/4".  Follow video for making a shaped card (on 5 X 7 Decorative Frame Dies) then cut another white front and also a decorative paper front (shades of green to lavender used here).  Cut decorative large die from white and from lavender.  Cut the smaller oval decorative die from variegated green to lavender like the card base.  Cut an oval of foam sheet to pop up decorative oval.  Cut a foam oval to pop up first large decorative die as well.  Glue foam under large die then glue to card, glue second smaller oval foam to the back of smaller decorative die then glue to card.

Stamp sentiment onto white using Deep Purple then die cut with oval, glue to card center.

Stamp Hyacinth blossoms using Deep Purple (about 18 total blossoms), sponge edges after die cutting then shape in the mold.  Glue 2 blossoms for each flower (this is another way to use this flower set). Fill with light green Prills.   Stamp Cherry Blossoms using Vivid Chartreuse on white, die cut and glue 2 per flower.  Fill with lavender Prills. Stamp, sponge and die cut leaves then shape in mold (one of my favorite molds!) 

 Arrange flowers and leaves around left side and a bit at top right corner.  Glitter flowers and randomly glitter card.

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
And whose hope is the Lord.
For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters,
Which spreads out its roots by the river,
And will not [a]fear when heat comes;
But its leaf will be green,
And will not be anxious in the year of drought,
Nor will cease from yielding fruit.

For more ideas on creating with the 5 x 7 Decorative Frame Dies, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/qdBFA5VpmSo.

Instructions:

Card size: 4 3/4 X 6 3/4".  See video above (5 X 7 Decorative Dies) for making a shaped card.  Make the card with heavy white cardstock.  Cut another front of white and of light purple decorative paper then glue both to card front.  Cut the decorative pieces of the Elaborate Ovals die out of silver. Use foam to pop up the first large silver die onto card front.  Cut the pretty oval’ish tag from Album Tags out of white and the inner one out of purple, cut out of foam sheet as well to pop up.  Glue the foam under the tags then glue to center of card.  Glue the smaller silver decorative oval to the tags.

Stamp the sentiment with Deep Purple onto light purple decorative paper, die cut with small oval and die cut a mat with a slightly larger oval out of white.  Glue the ovals with sentiment to silver decorative oval in the center of card.

Stamp the bottom half of the small daffodil using Deep Purple 2 times (including butterflies), sponge with same inside and out, die cut and form so that it forms a cup with stamped side out to make a crocus.  Use the Petunia small to make a sepal for flower base.  Stamp the leaves from the Urn stamp set using London Fog and color with Copics in greens for crocus.  Glue them all together and add (die orange) stamen.  Glue 2 butterflies together folding the wings up of the top butterfly.  Add an orange rhinestone for the head.

Stamp 2 Hyacinth (small) using London Fog and then color leaves and sponge Hyacinth. Stamp about 15  for each Hyacinth, of the small flowers to be glued onto the Hyacinth using Deep Purple.  Sponge both sides with a combo of Deep Purple and of Majestic Violet.  Mold in the shaping mold.  Use a hot glue gun to attach small flowers to each Hyacinth.  Add green Prills to the center of each small flower.

Glue the Hyacinth at the bottom of card so that leaves are even with the bottom point of card base (this helps it to stand straight when on display, I also added a square piece of white cardstock under leaves to help with that).  On top of the Hyacinth at the center bottom, glue the crocus with leaves making sure to keep everything one level at the bottom.  Glitter the flowers and glitter the card base randomly as well using a sponge with glue.  See Emma Lou’s videos (any of the latest flower making videos for this method of glittering).
