April Showers Bring May Flowers!And just like that! I snapped my fingers and we’re already on the THIRD challenge at the Stamping Boutique!
And Audrey sure looks like she could use some flowers to cheer up her rainy day!
This challenge was really a fun one for me and I think you’ll like it too:
There are so many ways to make flowers out of paper!
I’d love to see YOUR handmade flowers!
Come on over to the Challenge Blog at the Stamping Boutique and take a look at all the beautiful flowers we have made for you…
And while you’re there, go ahead and submit YOUR flowers for a chance to win images from The Stamping Boutique!
I made mine using an SVG file I created in Inkscape that is similar to the Dienamics Rolled Rose… I did not “copy” their design, but created a scalloped circle then cut it into wavy swirls. Lots of my friends have used that die and they gush about it, so I wanted to see if I could make something like it without forking out $10.95… I think it looks pretty close… and the advantage to mine: I can cut it any size I want with SCAL or MTC and make different size flowers!
And there’s another SVG goodie today!
See the little display easel my card is resting on? I made that! I see all kinds of different methods of staging cards for ideal photography and most of the best pictures I see, the cards are somehow raised up on some sort of holder. I found a picture of a display easel that is used for decorative plates, traced it in Inkscape, tuned it up a little for cutting with SCAL and there ya go! One sturdy little display stand!
