April Workshop-Part 3

Hi Stampers!

Tonight I'll be sharing the last card that was made at the workshop last month. It showcases another way of making a flower using our punches and cardstock. I love, love this card and the colors. I can't wait to make some more cards like this one but with different sentiments. My "thanks" is a little crooked (didn't use the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig) so don't look too closely at that. LOL

The colors used for this card are all taken from the Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper itself. I think this is one of my favorite color combinations this year. It uses Rich Razzleberry (NEW In Color) and Old Olive. Aren't the colors just so rich and striking?

Here is a close-up of the flower that we made. Both the flowers and the leaves were made using the Five-Petal Flower Punch. The tip here (which freaked me out when I found out what we had to do, so bear with me ;o) ) is that you will punch out your flowers and then run them through the crimper about 6x and then crumple them up. Then, you will start to separate the Cardstock by peeling away *gasp* the two layers. I was truly afraid to do this at first but it was actually very easy and the resulting was beautiful! The leaves are done the exact same way. Lastly, we punched out a 1/2" circle out of the polka dotted Cottage Wall DSP and adhered it to a Build-A-Brad. This was then attached to the center of the flower and leaves then attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. That's it. Easy right?
