Mystery Revealed

Spellbinders Filigree Damask Motifs Flower or Bouquet Tutorial
Sweet blog friends, I went out of town over the weekend and came home to a hot, hot house – it seems the AC/Heat system in my house was contemplating retirement.  On a 90 degree inside Monday morning I set about the task of finding a replacement that I hadn’t anticipated having to do for some time.  How good is life?  Well it’s good enough that the nicest repairman came out and fixed it for me.  I really thought it was done but with luck I may make it to winter when costs will be lower.  Well enough of my adventures, so are you curious how many mini glue dots it took to make the bouquet?????  The answer is nine, only nine!!  If you’ll stick around I’ll show you how!! 

Spellbinders Filigree Damask Motifs Flower Bouquet
It was a no-brainer to make this card in white – that’s the color I’d pick every time but some of you wrote that you could not see it.  So for my sample today I’m using a thin text weight paper, similar to a typewriter weight, in kraft for a different look that you can see.  Pulling a sentiment out of my Dreams set by Our Daily Bread Designs that says “You Did It”, I stopped myself from stamping inside because I can use this card for a number of occasions now.  The bouquet/flower shape is made using Spellbinders™ Damask Motifs.  With a band across the card using Spellbinders™ Classic Scallop Edgeabilities and Spellbinders™ Classic Decorative Inserts OneI finished off with a resin flower center, a Peg Bow and a Tim Holtz element on the corner.  My quick video will show you how simple it is to pull your own bouquet or flower together!

Thanks so much for hanging in there with me.  The past several months have been full of travel for me and I think I’m home for awhile.  I’m so blessed to be tinkering away happily in the background with some new toys that you’ll be seeing soon!  Smooches!!  Thanks for stopping by, see you soon!!

    Thanks for doing the tutorial, Becca. When you show it like that, yes it’s easy and obvious, that of course, this will work! But the finished project looks very complicated and exotic!
    Glad you could get your AC fixed, now is NOT the time to be without it!

  • Anne HartschlagMay 26, 2012 - 10:20 am

    Becca — I have watched several of your videos in the past and they have been good but the one you did today using the Spellbinders motif was beautiful. However, the reason I am commenting is to commed you on the quality of your video. I am 77 years old and sometimes it is hard for me to hear or see but this video when you zoomed in on the design you made was excellent. Every aspect of the video was so professional and excellent. You get an Emmy from me, if that counts. Sorry about your ac. I think you live in Florida as I do and it is an essential item. Thanks!!ReplyCancel

  • Judy AMay 29, 2012 - 11:16 am

    Hi Becca,

    I absolutely love this card!! Your use of Spellbinders in amazing. Spellbinders should consider hiring you to design thier die cuts. The Damask Motif – I think it would make a beautiful Christmas Ornament,
    but I bet you already had that in mind.. LOL
    Thanks for sharing all your talent.
