Hey everyone, sorry it has been so long since my last post. I know such a slacker right! I was even on Vacation last week!! I meant to do a lot last week but got few things done. I did do a tute on the Peony that I used in my last and current LO that I am putting on here for you. I also got a LO to share with you. So this will be a extremely long post!! Sorry that I have seem to of late do this I will try to do better promise! TIME JUST GETS AWAY FROM ME! LOL Ok enough of begging for forgiveness on with the tute!!
Cricut- to cut out the apple shapes (you will need 12)
Punches- either circle punch or snowflake. I am using the snowflake. (this is for the base for the petals) Sun punch (for centers)
Pad- for shaping
Shaping tool (I use a ink pen and a basic grey rub-on tool) I don't have a set of sylists so I have to be creative in this area LOL.
Wooden stick I use to shape with as well (this is for shaping petals)
Sizzors, tweezers and quick drying glue (I use liquid glass CTMH product)
Coloring your petals you can use chalk,ink,mists or sprays. I really is up to you. I used in this tute ink.
Cut out 12 roly poly apple shapes from the plantin cartridge. The size I used is 11/2".
Cut off the leaf and stem on all 12 and color how you like. Let dry if wet.
Shape your petals. Use foam pad and what tool you have to shape with. You want to go around in circles in center and work out to sides causing the petals to crinkle on the edges.
Punch out 2 snowflakes or circles for the Base. Use Pen or shaping tool to rub in center to get it to bow the sides up to attach petals to. Do this on both pieces.
Attach petals to base. Glue bottom base petals out farther than the top base petals. You may need to glue top base petals to each other, slightly over lapping a little, down the sides close to the bottom, near the center. To help with the shaping process ( help them perk up a little). You can use a pop dot to attach the bottom base and top base together or just glue.
Making center, punch out 4 suns. 1st sun cut between each ray. Then each sun move a little closer to the center (make sure don't go all the way) the closer you cut the more it will stand up. Then use pen to shape by making it stand up, slight circle motion makes it stand up. Do this to all pieces. Last 2 suns cup tighter with your fingers. Then glue inside stacking them into one another. Kinda push prongs in to help close in the center.
Now attach the center to the middle of your base that you have stacked together. To complete your flower.
Now for the LO that I have done using the "Grandma's Garden" kit from swirlydoos. This kit was perfect for the pictures that I wanted to scrap of my mom. She also helped make some of the flowers that I used in this LO which makes this LO even more special.
Gallery over at swirlydoos and you will see what I mean.. I don't hold a chance! But what the heck it was super fun doing it!! Ok ready for some super close-ups?
leaves and Butterflies that she puts in the forum for use to use.. She is so awesome she makes a new file of butterflies for each new kit!! This kit also came with some Glitz sheets in it (the paper with the music notes and butterflies on it.
Well that is all for now.. This would have been on here last night if the electric didn't go off and stay off till 11:00!! Just saying thats all.. LOL See ya next time!!
