Clean and Simple 112

October 20, 2010

Good Evening Everyone!

I hope you all had a fantastic day!  It was beautiful in Vancouver today, with the sun shining and the leaves turning colors!  What a great day for a walk 🙂  I know I enjoyed mine during lunch! hehe  Ok.. I know what you’re here for though, my creation of the day!  Today I picked to play with Clean and Simple I love their sketches!

So cute! Here’s my card:

Oooo I JUST GOT the DSP for Elegant Soiree AND it’s GORGEOUS!!!!!  Elegant doesn’t begin to explain this paper!  Beautiful, wonderful, delicate, girly.etc etc etc lol

focus of the card is this super cute flower that I cased from Marlene Peters (amazing crafter!)  So what you need to do to create this flower is to utilize your circle punches!  I used my 1-3/8″, 1″ and 1/2″ circle punches.  So to make this size flower you need 6 petals (one of each circle).  You will then glue them together.  I glued them off center, and lower toward my ‘pinch’ in the flower so that you can see the different colors.  NOTE: DON’T USE CARD STOCK! It’s way to think to glue together!  After you’ve glued all your circles, you then need to pinch one end and glue it together.  I used clothes pegs to hold them together at the end…because if you’re going to use your fingers to hold them..I hope you’re sitting in front of the television because it can take awhile for the glob of glue to dry.  And you do need a glob so that the pinch will stay together.

The trick to keeping the flower together is to punch out another circle (i used my 1-3/4″) as a base where you glue your petals on!  So after all your petals are pinched and dried, glue  them on your circle! and TA DA! you have a very cute 3-d flower to add to your card! 🙂

I also love this embossing folder!  EXCLUSIVELY from Stampin’ Up!  It matches the DSP and everything!  If you’ve noticed I’ve used it quite a bit since I’ve gotten it in July.

and Ribbon!  I used a retired ribbon for this card.  It used to be apart of the designer series ribbon packages.  I wish they brought this specific ribbon back on it’s own though!  I’m running out!
