Tutorial- Different flowers with one Die

 Hello Crafters,

I am sharing here some handmade flowers again ( as I shared with you all some other flowers in my previous tute post.. ;) using one single die. I made all these flowers with our fav Joy Crafts Floral Flourishes die. Here I share with you 2 flowers step by step. Its totally my way of creating flowers so enjoy with me. :)




Its a picture tutorial so loaded with lots of pics with descriptions. First cut flowers in different sizes with this die. I used a soft handmade paper. It looks like felt. 

Die comes in 4 sizes flowers so cut 2 of each size for layering.

Distress the edges from both sides. I used  Brilliance Sunflower Yellow ink.

Use paint brush n fold the edges 
Glue the edges of all sizes separately 

and join them like this n hold for some time.

Will look like this. Largest size 2 flowers paste like this.

Other sizes flower die cuts fold more n glue them.

The final flower. Smallest size fold more n glue all the die cuts 

If u want then add some Diamond Dust. Looks really beautiful in real. ;)

Now time for another flower. Used pink CS for this. Here are so many pics again.. ;)


Again cut 2 of each size. smallest can be 1.

Distress with 'Worn Lipstick'- both side

Again distress the edges with 'Aged Mahogany' - both sides.

cut the edges of these 2 sizes more for folding 

Bend them again with brush. Glue those extra cut flower sizes.

Assemble together n its ready.



Made some more different flowers with this single die. Will try to give tutorial on them too. Here are they..






Hope you all like this long long post. Thanks for spending your precious time with me. Love to read your comments.

I made Accordion fold card with 6x6 size. The close look is 6x6 inches. Here it is..
Stenciled feathers, Embossed sentiment

My fav Wee stamp girl- 'Sweetheart', handmade rose n tiny flowers
Its a front look of the card. Used Wee stamp 'SWEETHEART' n colored with pencil colors. Isn't she cute...?? I just fall in love with her. Used my heart shape die for sentiment n embossed with white embossing powder. for closing the card.. used my favourite key charm with ribbons.

Now the open look of the card...

I took 2 12x12 sheets to make this 6x6 accordion fold card. Used one more Whimsy Wee stamp 'LOVE ME DO' in the center of the card. Butterflies and leaves are stamped distressed and fussy cut.  Red flowers are heat embossed.

Whimsical Love Affair..

Hi lovely ppl,
Do u love coloring??
And to most of us the answer is YES!!...:)
Lately coloring trend with copics, the watercolor effect with pencils, and not the least our very fav Distress Inks is increasing..Some of us our just learning( that includes me!! ) and some experienced and already a pro!!..
To me coloring is therapeutic and yes fun too..
So here we our with our brand new Challenge#5...

And what else can be best for coloring then these super cute WEE stamps..
For my card (6"x6") i used PP from the Prima paper pad..sentiment stamp is from the Technique Tuesdays stamp set and some mulberry flowers, foam cala lily and the butterfly is sospeso done with paper napkin :). Colored with distress inks and Camlin watercolor pencils..though I personally find Staedtler luna watercolor pencils better..    
I am just a beginner at coloring so please excuse me for all the goof ups..:)










 
Hope you liked it...
Do join us for the new challenge...looking forward to some amazing entries...and keep tuned in ...winners for our last challenge will soon be announced...
