Flowers

Hi all,
I'm Kelly from www.kamscraftyplace.blogspot.com. It's my first time as a designer on here. Thank you for having me. Today I decided to make flowers. The file is pretty simple. It was one of the first ones I made on my Gypsy. I saw lots of flowers being made on Utube using punches. That seemed a lot of time wasted punching out especially when I had my Expression and Gypsy. I made this file with 8 different size flowers.

Here is my Gypsy screen. You can change the flowers, which I'm going to do now I have even more carts. The flowers are just over 1.5 inches.



Here are the floers all cut out on my mat. I used K&Co card. I find light weight card works better as it holds the shape and doesn't tear.



I then used the end of a paint brush to curl the petals. I also squeezed some with my fingers.




You can make lots of different flowers depending on how many layers you use. The purple one in the picture was my very first attempt. It's the last one of the batch I made ( I made about 40 flowers), so I keep it as a record. You can see by the pink ones, depending on what ones you use you can get different results.
I hope you all enjoyed my project. I will add the file at a later date to my Gypsy File section.
Thanks for looking
Kelly :)
