A little bit of Sizzix playtime
It feels like an eternity since I made a card but I recently became the proud owner of some of Sizzix stamp and dies sets that were designed by the very lovely and extremely talented paula Pacual and thought I should make a couple of cards. I've only made one so far and for this I used dies and stamps from the following set:
658294 Labels, old
I have to admit that this style of stamps and dies are not my usual choice but I am on a bit of a flower kick at the moment and am trying to use things that are not not designed for flowers to actually make flowers, so this is what I did.
I die cut eight of each of the little tab dies in contrasting colours.
Use a paintbrush to curl the shape of the petals.
Positioned two of the dies cuts so that the straight bits overlap and glue them together.
When they are layered together, they will look like this.
Repeat the process for the larger tab dies cuts.
Sorry if the quality of my photographs is worse than normal, it is such a gloomy day today, I've really struggled to get anything worth using. Anyways, hopefully you will be able to see how dimesional these flowers can be from this close up shot.
