Hello Everyone!! It's the beginning of a new month and that means it's time for another ODBD release and oh boy are there some gorgeous new stamps and dies that you are going to love this month!! For my project today, I've used the new Roses Dies, Rose Leaves Dies, Lovely Flower Stamp Set and.........the stunning new Luminous Lantern Die!
I couldn't help myself....I just *had* to start with the Luminous Lantern Die - which I cut out of cream card. The Luminous Lantern Die can make either a four or five sided lantern - I went for a five sided and cut all the sides and the base out of two pieces of A4 cardstock (8 1/8" x 11 3/4") with room to spare! (I think it's important to use a good strong adhesive to construct your lantern so that it stays together well - today I've used X-press It High Tack Double Sided Tape.) Once I'd created the lantern, I set to work on the roses. I cut several pieces of pink card using the Roses Dies, dampened them slightly and added a bit of shape and then glued together, creating one large flower and a couple of buds. For the greenery, I've cut a few leaves using Rose Leaves Dies and a couple of pieces using Leaves and Branches Dies and attached it all as shown. (I found it easier to attach the pieces to the side of the lantern using glue dots so you don't have to wait for glue to dry.) Next I've stamped the sentiment from Lovely Flower onto white cut and die cut it with Pennant Flags Dies and attached to the front of the lantern. Finally the top! Now, you could close your lantern in a couple of ways - I've put the tabs inside and pulled it closed with a piece of pink ribbon, tying it shut with a bow.
