Welcome to my blog. I would like to create a place where I can share my love of crafts with you. I started paper crafting in August of 2011. I just had my one year anniversary. I love making cards, doing scrapbook pages, creating flowers, quilling and many other crafts. I found out about greeting cards when watching a Stamp TV video a few months later. I am hooked on card making now. Love everything about it. I hope that you will join me in my love of crafts.

Are you longing for springtime...dreaming of sunny hours spent in a lavish flower garden where butterflies fly lazily from blossom to blossom?  
We invite you to join us in the  release of the Butterfly Medley Collection
This uplifting collection is bursting with bountiful botanical roses and a kaleidoscope of fanciful butterflies. 
The beautiful landscaped backgrounds include pastel plaids, polka-dots, flowing script, classic stripes, elegant flourishes, seed packets, garden themed sentiments, and images.

Add it to the card base. Stamp the Botanical Rose Bouquet on white CS with black ink. Color it with Copic Markers. Die cut it with the largest Square. Trim a piece of green CS to 3 7/8" by 3 7/8", add it to the back of the image. Add Double Dots to the back, and add it to the card. Stamp three sets of Botanical Roses, on orange CS with black ink. Die cut them with the matching die. Sponge the edges with Tangelo ink. Shape the flowers. (I will have a tutorial on my blog.) You will add two of largest and two of the next size down for the big flowers, and then add between one and two flowers to create the smaller flowers. Refer to the photo for adding them. Add the centers to the flowers and glue them to the card. Stamp four sets of leaves on green CS with black ink, and die cut them with the matching die. Sponge the edges with Cottage Ivy Ink. Glue them around the flowers. Die cut the ticket stub from the Luggage and Tag die, and glue it to the card.

Color the edges of the flower with YR15




Color over the last color with YR17 Leaving some of the YR15 showing. 


Color with YR24 on the edges to darken them. Then add a little YR27.

Go back with the lightest color YR15 to fill in the center,
You can go back with the same colors again if the 
edges and center of the flower are not dark enough.

Color the leaves, starting with the darkest color YG67.
Add some YG63 further out toward the center. 

Add some YG03, for highlights, then fill in the Rest of the leaf with YG00.

Here is a close up of the finished leaves and flowers.
Stamp the flowers in black ink on light orange,
then cut them out with the matching die.
Stamp the leaves on green CS, with black ink. 
Cut them out with the matching die.

Sponge the edges and centers of the flowers with Tangelo 
ink Sponge the leaf edges with Cottage Ivy ink.
Here is what you will need to prepare your card.
Please refer to project instructions for sizes

Turn the flower over and take a stylus and mold the flowers. 
working in a circular motion, and then pulling 
it towards the center of the flower.
Then flip it back over. Take the stylus 
and go around the center of the flowers. Move 
in a circular motion to raise the petals up.
Turn the leaves over and take the stylus and move it around 
the edges of the back of the leaf. Then move the stylus up 
the center of the leaf to shape them.
Here is a close up of the flowers so you can see how many flowers I put together. I added between tow and four to each one. After you have decided how many flowers you would like. Glue them together, and add rhinestones to the centers.

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial. I am new at making them, so if you need to ask me anything feel free to do so in the comment area. I will do my best to answer your question. 
Thank you for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!!!
