It is an honor to bring you the beautiful work of Kittie Caracciolo! Her love of flowers and attention to detail is apparent in the projects she creates. Her blog, Kittie Kraft, is certain to inspire you as it is loaded with highly detailed projects similar in style to the one she brings to us today.
Please join me in welcoming Kittie here in the CLASSroom by leaving a comment for her here. You will have until midnight Wednesday, April 18 Pacific Daylight Time to leave some love for Kittie and be included in our random drawing for some of the goodies Kittie used to create this BEAUTIFUL card!
I love creating scenes with Poppy Stamps and Memory Box dies. Let me show you the steps that I took to create this fun spring garden fence and window scene.
I die cut the Small Madison Window and matching Small Madison Window Shutter using Neenah Solar White card stock. I used the leftover window pieces as a little brace to attach the window and shutters together securely.
I die cut a Poppy Stamps Picket Fence using White Solar White cardstock and several sections of Poppy Stamps Grassland Border using Memory Box Meadow. I attached two sections of the grass to the back of the fence and one to the front.
I attached the window, fence and tree to the Memory Box Water card base. I used a few rolled up glue dots on the back of some of the tree leaves to attach to the window.
I die cut just the flower portion of the Memory Box Spring Border several times using Memory Box Water and Cotton Candy card stock and Hero Arts Lilac and Poppy card stock. I cut the flower heads off and formed them by pushing them down into a mat with a stylus. I die cut the top portion of the Poppy Stamps Gentle Leaf and tucked into the tall grasses to soften. I used the point of my paper piercer to pick up the tiny flowers and I used Glossy Accents to attach the tiny flowers to the stems.
I have become addicted to playing with dies and creating outdoor scenes. It is so much fun. I hope my project inspires you to give it a try.
