Sorry it’s been a while since blogging last but we have been experiencing problems with Blogger! But we are now back in the room and raring to catch up with some lovely projects starting with Tonic Studios NEW Autumn Die Collection and Embossing Folders.
As usual they have come up trumps with this oh so usable Autumn Die Collection. Each die is individually fabulous but use them together to create scenes etc. and you have the WOW! factor in your hands.
Join Jo on Friday 29th July at 8pm on Create and Craft TV for the introduction of these Autumn Die sets. These dies create perfect centerpieces on your cards and paper craft projects. There are four die sets in the range; the Pine Cone Season Die set, the Autumnal Oak Die set, the September Harvest Die set and the Fallen Leaves Die set.
Here is my first project for you using both the dies and embossing folders together with Nuvo Embellishment Mousses.
What I Did
Use an 8” x 8” cream card blank. Cut a 7 3/4” square from caramel card and glue to front.
Next cut a 7” x 7” brown square and a 5” x 5” brown square. Use an embossing folder for both squares. Using a mixture of the Nuvo mousses gently add layers of colour until you are happy with it. Glue the large square to card front. Cut a piece of caramel to 5 1/8” x 5 1/8” and adhere to rear of smaller embossed square. Add to card front with 3D foam pads.
Die cut a selection of the bramble leafy branch in brown and some of the more delicate leaf branches in caramel.
Take the bramble leaves and cut off the leaves. Apart from one set of the medium brown leaves, place them into an embossing folder and emboss. Using the Nuvo mousses colour the embossed leaves as before. Glue the leaves in sets of four by forming a cross shape. Glue large embossed at bottom, then the plain brown medium leaves and lastly the small embossed leaves. This will form the larger flower. Add to front of card with the caramel leaves.
The small flower is made in this same manner but just using two layers of the smaller leaves to form the bloom.
Die cut a panel to mount a greeting on to finish. I also added some string loops and Nuvo drops.
