How To Make a Nifty Gatsby Inspired Gift Set

With the right supplies it's so easy to make a nifty Gatsby Inspired gift set. I love the glitz and glamor of the Roaring Twenties. I ran across a vintage vanity bottle while out thrifting and visions of flapper girls with pin curls and beaded gowns danced through my head. Of course it came home with me, and here it is in all its altered glory.
 Although this bottle is probably a much later style, it still has the metal filigree reminiscent of the 1920's. With a new color scheme and sprinkling of gems this item looks ready to join the trinkets on Daisy Buchanan's vanity table.

How To Make an Adorable Card using Stunning Foil

Start with delightful subjects, that's how to make an adorable card using stunning foil. This card turned out fantastic and was a breeze to put together. The use of Transfer Foil just bumps it up a notch! ScraPerfect and Lawn Fawn are participating in a cross promo and I am thrilled with the product that I was sent from Lawn Fawn. What could be cuter than this stamp and die set, Bicycle Built For You?
~ Happy Adopt -A- Versary ~
ScraPerfect has regular and holographic Transfer Foil. For this card I used the Holographic Green. The Best Glue Ever is the perfect formula for applying the foil. The fine tip No Clog Writing Cap helps to apply and spread the glue thinly. From there it is easy enough to let it dry to a clear gloss, place foil, rub vigorously, and remove the foil quickly. And then, SPARKLES GALORE!
The paper I used for this card is also a Lawn Fawn product. The purple, green, and multi colored plaids come from the Perfectly Plaid 6x6 paper pad. I love the happy vibe these papers give off!
Thanks for viewing my Lime and Grape delight!

How To Make an Easy Yet Beautiful 3D Paper Rose

Today's post is all about how to make an easy yet beautiful 3D paper Rose in just three steps. This dazzling flower starts with a sheet of Robin's Nest Cardstock. With a snip and swirl a garden of black and silver roses bloom across your card.
~ Touch The Stars ~
The Silver Roses Glitter Cardstock has roses scattered randomly across it. Find it and the other beautiful papers and embellishments used for this card at The Robin's Nest store.
Step 1) Carefully cut a rose along the silver outer edge.
Step 2) Cut that rose into a spiral, using the silver line as a vague pattern.
Step 3) Starting at the center, curl and glue the paper into a rounded shape. Press the glued surfaces together until the adhesive bonds before moving onto the next portion.
ScraPerfect provides the exact tools needed for this project. The Best Glue Ever is the just-right bonding strength and the large No-Clog Writing Cap allows you to place a single dot of glue at strategic points.
Metallic Trim:Pink Straw
Pink Tag Sticker:Daughter Stickers
Moon card:Rosy Cards
Doily:Punched from Rosy Diamond Cardstock with Kreaxions Punch #913
Butterfly:Punched from Rosy Chevron Cardstock with Kreaxions Punch #604
In the US Kreaxions product are available from Just Imagine Crafts.
This card is a 5x7" base of Smoky Chevron Cardstock with a 4.5 x 6.5" layer of Wedding Cut-Outs Cardstock over the top. For a finishing touch I used the Best Glue Ever to add Metallic Pink Dew Drops to the roses, butterfly, and doily.

How To Make Your Cardstock Letters Absolutely Perfect

While playing around with my crafting tools I came up with this way to make your cardstock letters absolutely perfect. I cut the letters from Kreaxions Glitter Paper using the Mini-Alphabet Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers. I used Kreaxions Punch #303 for the letter tips and corners. It took a few tries to perfect my process, but the results are stunning!
I also used Punch #303 on opposing corners of my
yellow Kreaxions Duo Paper
Kreaxions Star and B Stencils helped mark out the places to punch then trimmed the excess paper back so the points stood out.
The Robin's Nest supplied the final touches for this card, the Pink Dew Drops and the Green Diamond Drops as well as those Purple Butterfly Drops.
And to hold those shiny bits of bling on I count on ScraPerfect and there resin adhesive, the Best Glue Ever. Just a drop is enough to keep them attached.
March 1st is team reveal day for
  Just Imagine Crafts.
