Special Folds for Circle Punch Flower

This flowers technique is very fun to do and once you get the hang of it, very easy too! I punched with a small circle punch and then iced with a sponge or dauber with pink ink.  Ice both sides of the circle as it will show when you fold the flower petals. First fold the left side over the right about one third of the petal, then fold left side the same way, next you fold back the outside edge of each petal so that they meet in the middle.  A single circle is used on some of the stems and then for larger flower use several folds together.  Hint make your fold and hold it up to my picture, then you can compare.  I can see this down in all colors and variated inks too. Best of luck on your design!

More Bird Fun Cards!

These cards just make me smile! The designer paper and bird stamp is from stamping up and they have so many new beautiful ones in the new catalogue. Please email me if you want to order! .    I colored the birds with markers and added a white gel pen dot for the eye.
They are each perched on a pretty ribbon, with a sentiment of choice added to the card. They are each backed with colored card stock for a frame and the base card is a yellow solid card stock. The birds are on pop dots to give them some dimension. Hope you have some more bird fun too!

An INCH AT A TIME You don't have to move a mountain !

Hello stamp Divas! I have been on the run this summer and not posting much. I think most of you have been busy too, as I have not been getting any feedback. Today is a lucky day for the first three that respond to my blog by email or comments.  I will send you a surprise gift in the mail so be sure to include your mailing address and email!  This card was one of my faves this summer!  I saw one like it on Pinterest, but I could not find the stamp set even though I know I have it!  I have several rolling bags to unpack from retreats, and I am moving slow as usual. I mixed two sets to design this card. I stamped my design on the white card stock, then I stamped the two large flowers again along with the sentiment on another white piece. I punched the turquoise with my one inch punch that looks like a postage stamp outline.  Next I punched the stamped flowers with a one inch square punch making sure that I got some of the center of the flower in the punch.  I used the center of the flow…
