How are we? Did you manage to catch the Pick of the Day last week?
Tonic released a new set of dies called the Entwined floral trellis, and they are absolutely beautiful. They have a backing plate and flowers that can be used within the dies, or out of the dies to create stunning flowers to match your projects.
Today, I thought I would share a few of my little makes to give you an idea or two of ways to use them. If you didn't manage to grab the last few from Create and Craft with me today, I'm sorry you missed out this time... but hopefully we will get more stock in soon!
The card below was a simple card which uses the flowers on their own. I have taken a border from the strip dies and cut it at an angle along the card edge. I also cut a leaf and sentiment from green cardstock.
The flower was cut from white and matching lilac card and 'twiddled' with the tweezers to create the shaped petals.
Here is the flower in slightly more detail. You can create different flowers and blooms by shaping with a ball tool instead of the tweezers.
Here is another card using the same die. This is the Buttercup one, and you can see the flowers were rippled between my fingers to give them a crumpled look.
I stuck to the cream and brown tones.
The backing strip was cut first, before any of the border edges. I then placed the flowers into the strip that was cut and cut it again. This takes out the flower shapes, leaving the apertures in the panel as shown. The flowers were them placed onto the panel and finished with a little pearl centre.
So... after a busy day at Create and Craft.... I am going to sit now with a lovely cup of tea and have a few minutes browsing a few blogs....
Whatever you're upto, enjoy it... Happy Crafting all xxx
