Prima flowers are all the rage these days as my sister discovered after viewing other bloggers.Â I bring this up because she thought I could ‘lose the flowers’ on one or two of my cards.Â Quietly I said, “no way!”Â But now, Cathie is on the band wagon and likes flowers since seeing them on other blogger’s cards.Â In honour of my sister’s love for flowers, I created this tutorial to make paper flowers.Â If you are like me, you have loads of unused flower stamps.Â Today we will layer and ink stamped images to create a hip and modern look.
I also wanted to incorporate Odd Bird Planet, so I used one of my favourite stamps that simply states, “Believe.”
Supplies:Â Flower stamps and sponge
Stamp out your image three times.
Cut out the flowers and ink the edges with a coordinating colour.
Ink up all three flowers.Â Ink some of the petals, not just the edges.
With a pair of scissors, curl the flower petals.Â I curled two downwards and one upwards.
Layer flower with pop dots.Â Place a brad into the center.
Stamp and cut out three large flowers and one small flower.Â The small flower will be for the center so use a different colour than your three larger flowers.
Ink all the edges in coordinating ink.Â Rub some colour onto the flower petals, not just the edges.
With a white pen, create dots on your petals and/or flower edge.
Layer flowers with pop dots.
Now you have pretty little layers.Â Finish off your project by adding stamped or punched leaves.Â Add a sentiment to your project as well.
