Welcome to Day Three....
Lynne Forsythe here to share my
Die~Namites Dies and Craftwell creations.

I began my creative process by cutting (4) 4" x 6" pieces of
 Ivory Cardstock and embossed them with
4 different Craftwell Embossing Folders.

I then cut the embossed pieces of paper into 1.5"x1.5" squares.

I applied Multi Medium to the Natural Canvas
and adhered the (4) different embossed squares.

I then painted on a layer of
Perfect Paints ~ Perfect Glaze Medium
over the entire canvas and set it aside to dry.

I chose a piece of Kraft Cardstock and

I spritzed one Flowering Tree with
Glimmer Mist and painted the "flowers"
On the second die cut, I painted the "flowers"
cut them out individually and adhered them to the "tree"
accenting with rhinestones.

Now that my canvas is dry, I mixed up a batch
of Bright Gold Paint and Perfect Glaze Medium.
I applied it all over the canvas face,
let it dry for a moment, then wiped off
with a damp baby wipe.
I loosely adhered the Flowering Tree diecut to the canvas,
wrapped the edges of the canvas with yarn
and then added verbage. 

As I had LOTS of embossed squares left over,
I decided to create a matching card to go
along with my "mini" canvas.
(I created my card background the same
way I created my canvas background.)

I diecut four Tall Flower Branch,
which I think looks alot like Foxglove,
from Kraft Cardstock.

I took 2 Tall Flower Branch diecuts
flipping one over,
and painted both with the Bright Gold paint.

I took the other 2 Tall Flower Branch, flipping one over,
and painted my flowers with various Perfect Paints.
I layered and popped the diecut images for dimension.

Here is a closeup of my card.

I hope you are enjoying the

  9. Love how you combined two cuts to make the flower. The tree is so pretty. Adding the colored flowers makes it stand out. The finishing of the canvas was great too.
    thanks for sharing.

  10. They're both fab, but I LOVE the Foxglove and that terrific embossed background!!

  11. Love your projects and tutorial but the Foxglove one is my all-time favourite....and it's one of my favourite flowers too. Love that die and it is high on my wish list. Nice idea using different embossed cardstock on the same card. I'm going to remember that tip.
