Beautiful Blooms and Tutorials

B$TH

 
Thank you for hopping along with us! I'm super excited about this hop and I think you will enjoy it very much too. I love making flowers and love teaching others how to create some of these wonderful flowers.

If you are just now joining this blog hop you will need to start at the beginning!

Start Here -- Monica Edwards - http://scraps2treasure.blogspot.com/

I decided to demo how I emboss my petals for some of my flowers.
For example like these:


What you will need:

Large Retro Flower Punch - EKSuccess
Medium Retro Flower Punch - EKSuccess
Stylist
Rolling Ball Empressor - EKSuccess
Spray Bottle of Water
Mouse Pad
Glue


Punch out 5 petals with the large retro flower punch and three from the medium retro flower punch.
Spray each set of petals with water. Do not over mist with water you will tear the paper!!
Flip your mouse pad over and place the petals onto it for a soft surface.
Then take your stylist and roll along the outer edges of the petals.


Then take your rolling ball empressor and smooth the inner petals to soften the hard embossed line.


After you finish smoothing all the petals, it's time to bring them to life!
Take your empressor and roll it around in the middle until your petals raise up into a cup shape!
 

It's time to create the flower now!
Place each set of petals inside one another one at a time with some glue.
alternate the petals and it should start to look like this:



After you finish with the large petals you will want to do the same for the small petals to create the bud for the inside of the flower.


Now it's time to place the small bud in the center to finish off your flower!
Easy as pie..lol!

Now get out those punches and start creating some fab flowers!!

Next in line for the hop is Linn!

WAIT!
Before you move onto the next blog, leave a comment. I will pick a random person to receive a small gift from me! When I announce the winner I will show you the surprise!!
Winner will be announced on May 9th!

  56. Dear Anna. I loved these roses and was wandering for so long how you make them... I figured it out watching Sherry Cheever tutorial. Then I posted on my blog how I make these roses which I saw on your blog. Today I found that you made tutorial long time ago which I overlooked. I amended my post and added your tutorial as for me you are the first who made these roses :) I just tried to make similar :) Kind regards, Joanna
