I'll start with the Letter squares: I stamped the Dot, Dot, Dot stamp in Whisper White Craft ink on Tangerine Tango card stock, dried it with a heat tool because I can't wait for things to air dry. Then I rubbed the paper with the embossing buddy and stamped the letters on top of the dot pattern in Whisper White craft ink and embossed with white embossing powder. I punched out the letters with the 1 1/4 inch square punch and layered them on top of 1 3/8 inch punched squares in Cherry Cobbler card stock. I used a Cherry Cobbler marker to make those sketchy lines around the edge of the Tangerine Tango squares. Position these layered squares on a piece of Whisper White card stock and trim tightly all around. My white square measures 2 14/16ths on each side, but I didn't cut that square first.
The flowers are made with the Daisies #2 die, using 2 of the medium daisies layered together and then I sponged the edges with Cherry Cobbler ink. The flower center is made with the the Floral Fusion Sizzlit Die--2 large and 1 medium sponged with Cherry Cobbler on the edges and offset. The Cherry Cobbler center is punched from the Boho Blossoms punch, wrapped with the new Cherry Cobbler baker's twine from the 2011 Summer Mini Catalog (see side bar).
The strips of green are 1/4 inch strips of Old Olive, crunched and wrinkled then add some Cherry Cobbler ink direct to paper. To get the worn look, take your Aqua Painter and paint over the whole strip which will bleed the Cherry Cobbler ink into the cracks and crevices. The leaves are made by folding a piece of Old Olive paper in half then punching out just a small portion of the fold with a circle punch. It doesn't even matter what size, but I would recommend something at least 1 inch or larger. The edges of the leaves are sponged with Cherry Cobbler.
Please let me know if you have received some benefit from all these directions! And as always, thanks for stopping by!
