Scrunched Flowers!

Have you wondered how some of the samples in the catalog are made?  Specifically the flowers on the Subtles page?  Well, I learned how at Convention and the showed my stamp club this month.  We used the flower as an embellishment on a super cute box and then made 3 fun cards to go in the box.  Have a look!

See that super cute flower?  Keep reading, because after I show you the cards, I will show you how to make the flower!

I used the fun and summery color combination of Elegant Eggplant, Raspberry Ripple and Lucky Limeade.  So fun!  I also used the Reason to Smile set.  Have you got your Reason to Smile set yet?  Hello...$5 stamp set...what are you waiting for?!?!?!?!  All you have to do is place a $60 order in my online store and once your total (before shipping & tax) reaches $60, enter the number for the Reason to Smile set.  You definitely don't want to miss out in this fantastic stamp set, so hurry, it's only available until the end of July!

We did the bleaching technique on the background of this one, a fun banner embossed with the Chevron pattern and a few little pearls in the middle of the flower finish it off nicely!

This one has an embossed frame and the sentiment is outlined with some Dazzling Details to give it a little bling!

A fun polka dot embossed background, some scalloped ribbon and a fun tag shape (Apothecary Accents Framelits) make this card super fun too!

So, there are the three cards they made.  Now do you want to see how we made the flower on the box?  Well, I have a treat for you!  I made my very first video to show you!

Fun, eh?  So what do you think of my video?  Leave me a comment and let me know!

Have an inspired day!

    1. LOL...thanks, but I didn't have a manicure! My secret is lots of lotion becuase I work with paper and it dries out your hands. And, make sure there's no gardening dirt under your nails before filming a stamping video!!!! ;)

  3. woo hoo!!! way to go baby!!! Keep it up!

  4. hey lisa great job on the video! very professional! i really enjoyed making that flower too. i will be making more of those for sure. and hey...........i see that lola made an appearance on your video as well. she must know that her days are numbered!!

  5. Great video Lisa! Going to make some of these for sure. If only I didn't have to go to work soon. And, love your new blog banner. Is that also a new Milestone award you received at Convention? Congrats!

    1. Work gets in the way of all kinds of fun things doesn't it Gail?!?!? Yes, that is a milestone award I received and am so proud of!

  6. Great Job Lisa!! If you hadn't said it was your first video, I wouldn't have been able to tell! You are a natural!!
