I created these gorgeous blooms from patterned paper scraps.
- Paper scraps
- Floral dies/punches – I used Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die and a few MFT Die-namics dies.
- Glimmer mists – I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Star burst sprays.
- Gemstones/rhinestones/buttons for the flower centers
- Double sided foam tape
Die-cut flowers with all your floral dies out of patterned paper scraps.
Don’t worry if the colors and patterns of the die-cut pieces don’t go well together; just spray some semi-opaque glimmer mist (I used walnut stain ink and Lindy Stamp Gang sprays in various colors) onto all the die-cuts. This will give an even color tone not to mention shimmer to all the layers. Make sure to spray a semi-opaque layer so that the patterns on your patterned paper are not totally lost.
To make the most of my glimmer sprays, I first spread a layer of un-cut scraps and spread my die-cut flowers on top of them and then sprayed with glimmer sprays. This way I do not loose even a single drop of my precious glimmer sprays!
Easy Paper flowers Tutorial, she says “ Using your fingers rather than an embossing tool tremendously cuts down the time taken to make your flower!” and I totally agree with her.
