Have you seen these cool fleece flowers yet? My friend BJ Peters taught me how to do these while I was in Boston a couple weeks ago. We’re going to be making these flowers and the card at Stamp Club this week — Wednesday, June 9th and Thursday, June 10th, 6:30 to 8:30 pm in my Stamping Studio in Mahomet, Illinois. Drop me an email if you’d like to join us!
I also wanted to share this project because it’s a fun way to present a little gift. The flowers can be made as pins, hair clips, headband decorations… you name it, and you can do it.
For details on making your flower… check back later this week for my new Video Tutorial. But for a sneak peek, the flower is constructed from circles cut with the Circles #2 die for the Big Shot Die Cut Machine. And the leaf was cut with the Island Floral die.
The card was created with the One of a Kind stamp set, which I’m really going to miss! It’s on the Last Chance list, so don’t forget to order it before June 30th. This stamp set is special because it matches the Boho Blossoms punch. The three little flowers on the punch match PERFECTLY with the stamp in the set, so all you have to do is stamp, then punch, for 3 perfect stamped flowers.
If you aren’t a fan of scissors, you can either check out my “How To Use Scissors” Video Tutorial, or you can get this stamp set and punch!! 🙂
The Gable Green cardstock sets off the pinks really nicely (Gable Green is disappearing on June 30th as part of the Color Renovation).
See the stamped & punched flowers? They’re popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals — Melon Mambo ink on Pretty in Pink card stock.
The Whisper White background was stamped, cut with the Top Note die cut, then run through the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Folder.
**BIG SHOT TIP** The pattern from the Square Lattice folder is pretty deep and made the words difficult to read. So to fix that problem, I pressed some of the pattern back out by running the long edge of my Bone Folder on the back of the embossed card stock.
Result? Textured but easy-to-read words!
