Good afternoon friends.  Today I’m sharing with you how I made these fluffy airy flowers.   I just love dimension on a card, so flat flowers were not an option today.  While the flowers stamped directly onto the cardstock looked pretty, I wanted to see what they would look like layered up a bit.

I could have stamped the flowers again on more cardstock and fussy cut them out, but they wouldn’t be light and airy.  So I stamped them onto some tissue. Brilliant RIGHT?  Instead of fussy cutting them out, I just tore them out carefully.  Tissue tears easily and you can control the tearing if you just tear slowly.

See how pretty the flowers are…. I just love them.  I used our returning color Poppy Parade to stamp the flowers.  I’m so happy that this color is back.  It’s bright and fun.  It is not red and not pink not orange it is somewhere in-between.  I also used pear pizazz on this card, it is such a pretty green.  Pizzazz and Poppy are a match made in SU heaven.

The shimmer that you see on the flowers is clear Wink of Stella.  I used a juicy pen and squeezed a good amount out to get this look.  Each layer of this tissue flower is set on a dimensional.  There are three layers of each flower.  When you tear the tissue leave bits of white showing.  The white showing makes the flower more realistic and ruffly.

I’m so beyond thrilled with this stamp set ” Abstract Impressions” and the Thinlits “Stitched Labels”.  I used one of the labels in the set to make the thank you tag.   I also added the stitched area that you see in the middle of the card using one of the pieces.  This piece doesn’t cut anything completely out.  It just puts a stitched pattern wherever you want to add interest. If you like to add texture to your cards this thinlit will do the trick.

The last thing I did was dip the brush tip of an aqua-painter into a bit of Pear Pizzazz ink.  Then I squeezed the painter to release water and get the tip really wet.  Once the tip was ready I flicked color splatters all over the card.

Thanks for stopping by, come again and remember to LIVE LOVED.
