One of my hostesses this month asked for “flower” cards. Perfect for this time of year! I really wanted to show off the Spiral Flower die that is in the Occasions Catalogue but it is just a bit bulky on a card for me. So, I decided we will make a fun little spring decor piece as one of our projects so these beautiful die cut flowers can blossom in full!
Haven’t seen this die in action yet? Here’s a Stampin’Up! video showing you how to create blossoms with the Spiral Flower die…

Another bright and cheery card to entice Spring to come! I need some flowers in my life!
Are you wondering how I made those flowers? Its a little trick I learned at Leadership back in January. I cut 5 flowers from crepe paper with a framelit. I then laid them all together and put a brad in the center to hold them together. Then came the crumpling – I crumpled the layers seperately until I was happy with the results.
Add a bit of water and Daffodil Delight reinker into a spritz bottle – I have no measurements for you – I just added. :) I held each flower about 7-8 inches from the spritzer and spritzed until I was happy with the color saturation. Allow to dry. I LOVE the gradient color!!

I’m not one to usually complain too loudly about the weather. I mean, we live in Canada, where winter lasts and lasts and we deal with snow on the group until at least April or May. BUT…
…it’s already MARCH and we are still in a deep freeze with no end in sight for this week! I can’t take it anymore!
I’m calling it quits…
I’m throwing in the towel…
I’m calling the game…
I’m going on strike!!
I need some sunshine and warmth in my life – so I made this card!! It tells me there is a HOPE of sunshine on the horizon! LOL
