Homemade Flowers

I'm on 'vacation' this weekend visiting my parents which means I get my moms cartridges to choose from as well as my own! I love taking advantage of that! I was also on a mission to learn to create homemade flowers for Peachy Keen Stamps Let's Face it Friday Flower Power Challenge #12! First, Angelica, thank you for linking your tutorial! I used your demonstration to create some flowers of my own!

I used Paper Doll Dress Up for my bride and cut her at 3.5 inches. I also used the Everyday Character faces Peachy Keen Stamps. I desperately need to get more of these awesome stamps! The sentiment is from Sweethearts and is cut at 2.5 inches. I used a fiskars border punch for the black flower paper and added stickles to the 'i' in congratulations. I used Picturesque for the flower pedals. I cut out the same flower 6 times and layered them, then I added the paper and pearl in the center to cover the void. I just love the look of this card! and love that it can be either a bridal shower or wedding card.

I wanted to add my other flower card that I put together tonight. I just love the colors in this card!

The flowers in this card are also from Picturesque. This paper was a little thicker so it filled in the center of the flower better so I didn't feel like I needed decorations for the middle. The sentiment was from Lyrical Letters and I used the hide contour feature to get the blackout look. I added stickles to the center of the sentiment flower and some bakers twine. I just love how bright the colors are!
