Default Tutorial Tuesday #7 {02-21-12}: Flowers

Hello! Giovana here sharing with you a Flower Tutorial using a couple of the Heart Dies from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!!

TIPS:
1.- Depending on how big or small you want your flower or rosette, it's the die size you are going to use.
2.- When you are getting close to finish your flower, you could cut the hearts in half to position your petals as you wish.

Here is a step by step picture tutorial. Please bear with me, I don't do tutorials, but I think you may like this one

Picture #1: Materials you need.



Picture #2 and #3: Die-cut your hearts and shape them using the Paper Blossoms Tool Kit. If you spritz the hearts with a tiny bit of water before you shape, it helps make the paper more pliable.




Picture #4: Your hearts will look like these ones:



Picture #5: Ink all edges. (Optional)



Picture #6: Snip hearts a bit to create open petals.



Picture #7: With the help of a toothpick, roll your hearts, then add glue to start creating the rossette.



Picture #8: Add as many hearts you want until your rossette is completed. I added a little bit of StarDust Stickles to give it a little shine



My final card:





Hope you like it and give it a try.
Thanks so much!
Giovana
