Gummiapan Nature Dies With Pion Papers | By Donna

by - 7/18/2017

Hello, everyone!
I'm here with my "Tuesday Craft Smorgasboard" creation on Swedish House Crafts blog today.
I have made a card using Pion papers, and Gummiapan nature dies.
Links to the products used are in the text, and can be found at the end of my post.

For the shape of my card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #2, and Pion "Theodore & Bella" complete collection design papers.
I die cut, and layered the design papers using Gummiapan stitched squares, and Gummiapan stitched banners, and matted them onto my card base.
(I so love these value for money metal dies. They cut perfectly through my EBosser, and are a delight to use.)
The Doohickey So Wrapped Lovely die is also from Swedish House Crafts. I used the design papers to die cut the tags, and embellished them with some of my craft stash.
I have embellished the doily with small petals die cut from Gummiapan flower, and adhered 3mm Ivory pearls to the centres.

The image is from Pion Design "Where The Roses Grow - Bouquets".
I used a Gummiapan stitched square to die cut the image. They are perfect for hand stitching as the guidelines are already there, and so I stitched around the outside of the image with a length of green embroidery thread. Easy Peasy!
The resin corner, and 3mm pink s/a pearls around the image are from my craft stash.

I hand made the flowers using Gummiapan flower dies. There are 5 dies in the pack.
I die cut the petals with green papers that are included in the Pion "Theodore & Bella" collection, and rubbed them with a ball stylus tool to add texture. Once I had assembled the petals, I placed 2 double ended stamens through the centres.
I die cut the foliage using Gummiapan twig pointy leaves, and leaves dies, and used the smallest flower petal from the Gummiapan flower die set, and adhered them along the centre of the twig pointy leaves.
The decorative pin is from my stash.

I handmade the pink flowers exactly the same way using pink papers from the collection.
The pocket watch image is one of many that are included on the 12 x 12 sheet of Pion "Where The Roses Grow" I cut around the image and added a 3mm Ivory s/a pearl to the centre.

Inside the card is decorated with the design papers, and a die cut Gummiapan stitched squares. There is a blank to write a message.

That's all from me today!
I hope that I have inspired you to have a go at making something using the gorgeous papers, and Gummiapan dies.

Below is a list of all the products that I used.
