Another Blossom Petals Punch Flower Card

I love that the Blossom Petal Builder card makes so many types of flower.  Lately I’ve been stuck on making flowers with the larger and smaller petals.  I punched 16 of the larger petals and 8 of the smaller ones.  I then punched a 1-3/8″ circle and 1-1/4″ circle from an adhesive sheet to make two stickers.  Punch another 1″ circle from the adhesive sheet.

Use 8 of the larger on the 1-3/8″ circle, space them evenly.  Adhere the other large 8 petals on the 1-1/4″ circle, space them evenly.  Adhere the smaller 8 petals on the 1″ circle.  Use dimensionals to adhere the petal layers.  The larger petal circle is the base, then the 1-1/4″ petal circle followed by the 1″ small petal circle for the center.  I then punched 3 of the larger flowers from the Boho Punch and adhered the 3 flowers with mini glue dots then embellished with pearls.  The sentiment is cut using the Framelit dies and coordinating stamp set, Apothecary Art.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge #20

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a sketch challenge so I used the opportunity to finally use the stamp set Pedaling Past and to also participate in Pals Paper Arts color challenge.  The sketch comes from the June issue of Success magazine for demonstrators.  The color challenge at PPA is Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Soft Suede.

PPA 46 Color Challenge - Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Soft SuedeI love this stamp set, Pedaling Past because it looks vintage.  Therefore I wanted my card to look old and distressed so I used the distressing tool on the cutter kit for the edges of  all layers on my card.  I also used My Digital Studio to print out circles with the cog punch.  The cogs and circles are one layer but shadowing on the cogs gives them dimension.  I stamped the bicycle image with black Stazon then watercolored using my ink pads .  I also used the border image and the sentiment from the set and used the Curly Label punch for the sentiment.  All edges were sponged with Soft Suede.  Here’s my hybrid card.
