FLORAL WREATH – TAMMY TUTTEROW DESIGNS

Hi Everyone! I’m here today with a card that I created for Tammy Tutterow Designs. I love to make handmade flowers and Tammy’s dies are perfect for making some of the prettiest. I chose an Autumn color palette and used several of Tammy’s sets to create the wreath and flowers. I’ll show you how easy it is and how I put this card together below. Enjoy!

 

Handmade card with wreath and handmade flowers

 

Colored cardstock with Distress Spray Stains and Ink

Begin by creating the wreath. Spray a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock with water and spray on Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress Spray Stain onto surface. Allow colors to blend together and completely dry. When dry, use a mini ink blending tool to apply Mustard Seed Distress Ink in light areas of the background.

 

Die cut Fern Leaves

Using Tammy Tutterow Designs Bitty Posies die set, cut out 7 fern type leaf patterns.

 

Circle Frame Created with Circle Dies

To create a form for the wreath, use a nested circle die set to create the form. Here, I’ve used My Favorite Things Pierced Circle Stax. Make sure to reserve the large center circle piece that is left over after cutting the circle frame.

 

Circle Frame Colored With Distress Spray Stains

Spray circle with water first, then spray with Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress Spray. Just make sure to spray the circle with the same colors you used to color fern type leaves.

 

Wreath Created with Fern Leaves

Attach leaves to the circle using a small paint brush and Ranger Multi Matte Medium. Set aside to dry.

 

Cardstock Colored with Orange and Yellow Distress Spray Stains

To create orange flowers, spray a piece of Neenah Solar White 110 lb. cardstock with water, then spray Spiced Marmalade, Carved Pumpkin, Dried Marigold, Scattered Straw, Squeezed Lemonade and Fossilized Amber Distress Spray Stains onto wet the cardstock. Allow inks to blend together by tipping the cardstock in all directions and allow to semi-dry. Lightly spray on Wild Honey to give the blended colors some depth.

 

Cardstock Colored with Yellow Distress Spray Stains

For yellow flowers, spray a piece of Neenah Solar White 110 lb. cardstock with water, then spray with Squeezed Lemonade and Fossilized Amber Distress Spray Stains. Allow to dry.

Shaping a Paper Flower with Flower Shaping Tool

Shape flowers with flower shaping tools on back side of posie. McGill and Sizzix both have nice tool shaping sets.

Creating Flower Centers with Glue

To add centers to the tiny posies, add a drop of Ranger Multi Matte Medium.

Creating Flower Centers with Micro Beads

Next, gently sprinkle on some Prima Black Micro Beads. Set flowers aside until the centers completely dry.

 

Paper Pinwheel Posies

For the large flower, cut 5 medium size petals from the Tammy Tutterow Designs Pinwheel Posies die set.

Again, shape petals with a flower shaping tool kit.

 

Medium Orange and Yellow Posies

Adhere bitty posies to centers of the larger posies.

 

Woodgrain Panel Made Out of Paper and Ink

To create the wood panel, stamp on Tammy Tutterow Desgins Big Woodgrain background stamp onto a 4-3/4″ x 6-3/4″ piece of Neenah Solar White 110 lb. cardstock with Potting Soil Archival Ink. Allow to dry. When the woodgrain image is dry, using a mini ink blending tool, apply Tree Branch Archival ink to the entire piece. (Not shown: Distress the edges with a distressing tool.)

 

Embossed Orange Card Panel

 

For the base panel, emboss a 5″ x 7″ piece of Bazzill Candy Corn cardstock with the Tammy Tutterow Rose Tablecloth embossing folder. Stamp the sentiment, “from my heart” from the Tammy Tutterow Designs Tiny Sentiments stamp set onto center of circle with Vintage Photo Archival Ink. Ink  edges of the circle with Wild Honey Distress Ink.

 

Handmade Card with Wreath and Handmade Flowers

To complete the card, adhere circle to center of the woodgrain panel and then adhere all panels one to the other as shown above. Last, adhere wreath around the circle and then arrange flowers on the wreath and adhere with multi matte medium. Attach to a 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ card base and the card is done.
