Annette Green’s Release
Hi! I’m Di. Thanks for dropping by.
When I learned that Annette Green was creating her first line of stamps and dies with Elizabeth Craft Designs, I was so excited to get it all. I already admired Annette’s beautiful creative album and card designs. Well, I was not disappointed! Her bee-inspired line, Everyday Elements, is fantastic!
I started with a 5 x 7″ kraft card base and added blue Reminiscence patterned paper to the inside. A large doily and circle large enough to cover the hole in the doily were cut from text pattern paper. I glued the doily over the circle then cut it with the My Favorite Things Pop-Up Surprise Die.
I adhered the pop-up doily to the inside of the card centering it with the card fold. Hopefully this will be a fun surprise for the recipient!
I fashioned a second pop-up element from a 2″ by 3/4″ piece of the text paper, folded it in the middle, and folded 1/4″ tabs to secure it to the card base.
This pop-up was adhered between the card base and the doily so that it is hidden.
I cut multiple of all of the Stemmed Flowers dies from watercolor paper. I painted some of the die cuts with Elizabeth Craft Designs Watercolors then glued two layers together to strengthen the die cuts.
Hint – when watercolor painting, the water can cause the two glued dies to pull apart. So, the top die should be painted prior to gluing the two layers together.
The stamped and fussy cut bee seems to hover over the flowers.
I really enjoyed creating this spring bouquet with this wonderful new line. The stamps leave a very clean image and the dies cut well.
Thank you for reading and I hope you’ll come back soon. Di
