In Which I Actually Make Pretty Flowers

Yes, that's right! I actually made some pretty flowers using SU dies. No more flat, 2-dimensional, boring flowers for me - now I know how to make them look slightly realistic! No more having to resort to buying paper flowers - now I can make my own!

It happened like this: I was cruising through Splitcoaststampers and saw a project with some gorgeous roses on. I went to the blog to find out what die or punch was used for the roses and when I found that info, did a Google search for the die. One of the things that came up was a YouTube tutorial on how to make these roses - and voila! I applied those techniques to my SU dies and I am soooooooo happy with the result!

You just gotta LOVE the internet!

Here, take a lookie:

These ones are using the Birds and Blooms die set.

These are made from Flower Fusion.

Now, I'm sure many of you have twigged onto these techniques much quicker than I did, but in case you're a bit technique-challenged like me, click HERE for the link to the tutorial.

There may be more flowers on my cards from now on, I'm thinking!


PS Thanks for your feedback on yesterday's card. I can't mail it till Monday, so I'm hoping for a few more opinions to help me decide.
