EZ steps to make Classic Petunias

Summer has arrived in the craftroom! 
The Petunia flowers are so versatile and fun to use.
I've put together a quick tutorial to make some for you here:

EZ Steps to making the Classic Petunia flowers!
1. Stamp the flowers and leaves in brown ink, colour the leaves with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink and die cut using the coordinating die.

2. Colour the flowers using the Precision Daubers and Memento Lilac Posies ink.
Color from the centre upwards on each petal using the edge of the dauber to create the shading. Shade the edges of the leaves with the Bamboo Leaves ink.

3. From the back of the leaves shape the edges of the leaves with the flower shaping tools. Turn the leaves over and press in the centre of the leaves to bring the leaves upwards.

4. From the back of the flowers shape the tips of the petals with a circular motion or for a more distressed look prod the tip with the tool three times.

Turn the flowers over and run the flower shaping tool down the centre of each petal. Place the whole flower over the tool and shape with your fingers.

5. Adhere prills to the flower centres and glitter the petals.
Use your flowers on your projects and have fun!

Layer them up or use them individually!

Happy Mothers Day

Wishing all the Mom's that are celebrating Mothers Day today
a very Happy Mothers Day! 

Here in the UK we already had Mothers Day, but I know
my USA friends are celebrating today! 

Thought I would share a card I made with the Tropical Paradise collection
from Heartfelt Creations. I used up the paper ribbons from
the paper pad on this card, inspired by my friend Oksana's cards using 
these ribbons too! 

Have a wonderful day and of course lots of crafty fun!

Money Wallet

Make a money wallet to give your gift of money in!
As promised on my Facebook Live over at Heartfelt Creations here are 
all the measurements and instructions to make this money wallet.
You can rewatch this video too where I make this HERE

Here is what it looks like inside, the middle panel
is perfect for writing your message on!

To make the wallet follow these simple steps:

Step 1: Cut a piece of card 11 1/4" x 6 3/4" long and score at 3 3/4" and 7 3/4".

Step 2: On the shorter section place the border die and die cut to form 
your opening flap. Fold along all the score lines.

Step 3: Cut the following pieces from the paper pad for the outer of the money wallet.
1 x 6 3/4" x 2" piece for the top
1 x 6 3/4" x 4" piece for the back centre
1 x 6 3/4" x  3 3/4" piece for the front lower section.

Fussy cut the chair and the bird house from a journaling piece from the paper pad.

Step 4: Cut the following pieces from the paper pad for the inner of the money wallet.
1 x 6 3/4" x 2" piece for the top
1 x 6 3/4" x 4" piece for the back centre
1 x 6 3/4" x  3 3/4" piece for the front lower section.
1 x 6 3/4" x 3 1/2" piece of white card
1 x 6 3/4" x 2" piece to go over the die cut white card for the pocket.
1 x Strip 6 3/4" long to go over the pocket.

Fussy cut the well from a journaling piece from the paper pad.
Cut the Birthday sentiment from the paper pad

Step 5: Adhere the outer pieces of paper to the card and stamp the sentiments.

Step 6: Adhere the two fussy cut images to the wallet front and 
adhere pearls along the front flap.

Step 7: Adhere the pieces to the inner of the wallet and the fussy cut pieces
for the centre section.

Step 8: Die cut the white card for the pocket and adhere the paper
over the top and the strip over the top of that too. Glue the edges of this
piece to the bottom section of the wallet to make the pocket.

Step 9: Stamp, cut, colour and shape your flowers and butterfly
 and adhere them to the money wallet.

All you need to do now is decided how much your gift is and who it's for!
