January 11 Create with Red, Pink, Green,& Yellow

PhotobucketI really love making flowers!!!  I created these flowers for a swap I was in. Once I got started it was really hard to stop! 

I used the Mother's Day Bouquet cricut cartridge to make all of my flowers.  I don't remember which flowers I used but I tried using a few different ones.   I cut 3 of each size: 2", 1 1/2", and 1" per design.

Next I used my Stampin Up! ink pads to ink the edges of each flower cut. Then I used my hole punch and punched holes in the middle of all the flower sizes then used a brad to hold them all together.  Using a water bottle I sprayed the flower and crumpled each layer.  After the last layer was done I opened the flower and let it dry.  My last step was to add some touches of stickles to each flower.

This was such a fun process and I love how they turned out!!  Thanks for coming by and taking a look at my project!! Here is my friend Cassie's blog, I got some great inspiration from her flower tutorial

Kathy, I used just plain white cardstock from Walmart... using the spray bottle of water really makes it look like that... I got my inspiration from my friend Cassie... I will find her link to her blog she has a great video that I used Christina
