All That Scraps release time again!

Diane has been hard at work yet again! She created this adorable Ladybug Friends set. It will be released Monday night along with the other C.C. Designs sets and Amy has a new one. I used real red as my base on this. The vellum is cs vellum from SU. Copic colors are E31, E49, R46, R89, C1, C3, C5, C7, W1. I finally got a tutorial made for the flowers.



Cut out 8 of the smallest classic scallop heart. If you are doing a bigger flower cut 5 of the smallest and 5 of the next size up. I stamped these with my polka dot background stamp from All That Scraps.


I sponged the edges with chocolate chip ink.


Stack them on top of each other and punch a 1/8" hole in the bottom of the hearts. In this pic, I punched a little too close to the bottom. Move up a bit higher.



Take the whole pile and scrunch em! I undo and redo several times to really rough them up.



Next take a brad and arrange the petals in an even circle. Open up the brad in the back. Pick up your flower and scrunch the petals and work with them until you have a pretty flower. :) I hope you enjoyed the process. Sorry about the couple of out of focus pics. I hope you get the idea. Stay tuned tomorrow for another super cute set! Have a great day and enjoy the possibilities.

Lesa, thank you so much for the tutorial!! I used Marvy Scalloped Heart punches instead of Nestabilites to make the flowers for my card and it worked!!
