I've been awed by Kittie's (Kittie747 http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...ie747&x=4&y=10 ) awesome floral creations and when I was punching a strip with the lace ribbon punch the other day and noticed that the tiny leftovers include flowers that are shaped just like the 4 petal flower in the Bitty Shapes punch pack, I knew I had to try something with them. I loved the pretty colors in this bedding from today's inspiration site Land of Nod http://www.landofnod.com/kids-girl-b...-bedding/f4679
I used the oval from the Designer Frames ef set as my base in Whisper White, cut out then mounted onto a top fold Whisper White card base. The little leaves die cut is in Certainly Celery and I used Kittie's method of using a stylus to add veins and sponged them lightly.(Wish I had slightly smaller leaves, but this was the best I had on hand) I also added a Celery swirl from another die. I punched white and Pink Pirouette flowers using the 2 flowers from the Bitty Punches as well as the tiny ones and tiny circles from the Lace Ribbon punch. The daisy-like flowers I cut petals into then added the center. I used a marker to add pink centers to the white flowers and tiny pearls to add centers to the pinks. I used my stylus to indent the centers of the flowers.
I decided these colors would make a great baby card so I stamped my greeting in Celery at the bottom. Can't believe I'm making a baby card for my daughter's best friend from high school...my how time flies...my DD will graduate from college this spring and her friend will be a mommy by then!
*I called this CAS because of the layout, but it is a rather time-consuming process to punch, cut, shape and use the stylus to make the flowers/leaves not to mention gluing the tiny things!!!
