Handmade Flowers

Hi everyone,


Well it is Sunday and it is time for the new challenge at Come and Get It.  This will be my last challenge as part of the Design Team and I have had a great time.


I have met some wonderful new crafting buddies and we have shared some great tips and tricks.  I am very lucky to have had this opportunity and I am sure I will get a chance to participate in some of the new challenges that come up.


But for now the challenge this week is Handmade or 3D flowers.


I am a flower chick so for me this is a great challenge, if you don’t see a flower you normally see a butterfly on most of my projects.


I had a couple of ideas to create the flowers but I decided to create flowers with an idea from Alisa Tilsner, after watching Alisa Tilsner’s video.


The punches that were used are the Blossom Punch, 1-3/4” (4.4 cm) Scallop Circle Punch and the Boho Blossoms Punch.


I scrunched the punched blossoms and I have added a little ink to each of the flowers plus some pearls.


The colours I have chosen are from the current The Dynamic Duo Challenge which is Wisteria Wonder and Concord Crush.


The layout is from the latest sketch at Clean and Simple.  The additional flowers were stamped in the Wisteria Wonder and Concord Crush ink using the Printed Petals stamp set.


The sentiment is from the retired Occasional Quotes Hostess Set.


Here is my card:





Stamp set: Printed Petals, Occasional Quotes Hostess Set (retired)

Card: Wisteria Wonder, Concord Crush, Very Vanilla
Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Concord Crush

Accessories:  1-3/4” (4.4 cm) Scallop Circle Punch, Boho Blossoms Punch, Blossom Punch, Pearls, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



I really like the card and it has been fun using just two colours.
