I've been on a flower kick lately and have been making lots of my own using all kinds of technics that others on the web have shared and my own. Some flower shapes have been cut on my Cricut, using small punches, or hand cut, or cut with the new Tim Holts flower die. I always use Glimmer mist and Stickles. I love how you can take a paper color that you don't like and make it into a color to die for, or do the same with a flower you have already made and change it's color to fit a different project. The last two flowers are on a project I'm working on, and will post soon. Please leave comments and let me know what you think.

I used a cart I seem to hardly ever use, Zoobaloo. To my surprise I think I have truly under valued this one. I cut the birds in a nest twice(yellow,blue) and the shadow, all at 2 1/2 in. I edged puched GP white with an EK punch, and layered on SU Certainly Celery ribbon. The DP is Martha Stewart. I stamped on the ribbon with Stazon ink, the die inks bleed.
I decided to do a notepad for my daugthers teacher. I used Prima DP and solid green, called The First Blush Collection. I used a Hero Arts Stamp on PTI vintage white card stock. I colored image with Copics. I cut the ribbon tag with nestibility die.
For this card I cut a piece of acrylic in a tag shape with the Cricut using the WWL cart. I then stamped on it with Stazon ink in purple. I turned the tag over and colored with Copics(B05,Y15). The DP is Martha Stewart and ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. I also used a dot embossing folder on the white GP card stock.
This is one of my favorite colors Blue. All cardstock is SU Pacific Blue. I cut 5 daisys from WIMG at 2 in. to make the flower and it's sprayed with glimmer mist. The butterfly is from DC and is cut at 2 1/2 in. Ribbon is Hobby Lobby, and the edge punch is Martha Stewart, and stamp is Hero Arts.

I made this card for my grandmother who lives in a assisted living facility. I used a Hero Arts Stamp and colored it with COPICS(Y000,Y11,Y15,C1,C3,C5,C7,C9,E31,E33). The solid paper is SU and DP is Geobreeze . The edge border punch is Martha Stewart. Hope you enjoy.
