Flowers, Flowers Everywhere

Today is the last day for amuse-bouche for the Everything's Rosy release. It is always sad to end amuse-bouche, but that means you are a little bit closer to getting your hands on some brand new rubber! I've been having lots of fun with these stamps, though, so I'm not putting any away just yet. *wink*



I took a turn sideways today. And by that, I mean that I used the new bare branch as a flower stem by turning it sideways. I omitted inking the smaller branches and added a bunch of the leaves to the sides to make the stem of a sunflower. And, since there is no sunflower stamp, I punched, notched and layered three cardstock circles to make the blossom and added a bunch of chocolate pearls to make the seed centers.

These 3-D flowers are such a trend these days, I am still trying out different shapes, colors and techniques. I have a couple sitting on my desk right now, waiting to be put on a card. But, for now, I'm happy playing with the red rubber flowers. Stay tuned....
