Well after a long time away again due to my health i have got myself into a better place so i am ready to get blogging again.
I eventually got my big shot for my birthday and i am in love with it!! You can do so much with it and believe me i have been. Today i am going to share a layered flower tutorial with you all.
Pop by and LIKE my facebook page for a chance to win a kit to make 5 of these yourself.
What you will need.......
Sizzix Big shot
5mm Double sided sticky tape
Mixed flower die
Assorted papers and cards
Start off by selecting lots of different coloured papers and cards in different textures and thicknesses then cut lots and lots of sets of your flowers ready to layer up.
Now you have lots of flowers cut you can really start to have fun with them, I love different textures and effects so i started experimenting with the cuts.
For this one i picked a really nice, heavy card.
To start i folded down the center of the petals on all of the cut flowers to give them a really nice shape.
Once i have done it with them all you are ready to start layering them up.
I love this thin tape, double sided tape available at most craft shops
Place a piece of the double sided tape on the back of one of the petals and attach to another in an alternate style.
Continue to layer them up in size order from largest to smallest in alternated colours as shown.
Build up till you have no more flowers left then you are ready for the final detail and that's the bling!
Use some of the sticky tape on the back of your chosen gem and then add it to your layered flowers.
Now these are ready to use on lots of different crafty projects, i will be using mine on my cards. They will look amazing in red and green for Christmas cards.
Hope you all have lots of fun trying this out xxx
