ID: MC Feb/15 - Quilled Flowers - Leave Room - Love & Laughter - HB card
size: 5"w  x 7"h

Created: February 14, 2015

I was in a mood to make another of these cone petal flowers... and some newsprint roses and then I was also playing with alcohol inks on Yupo, so thought I'd try rolling some flowers with that...

Yupo is 100% recyclable, tree-free, waterproof and durable

I'm using a few stamps from Quietfire Design  

("10 Tiny Sentiment" 10 pce set); ("Leave Room in your Garden");  ("Home/Congratulations" 5 pce set);  ("Valentine's Day/Love" 8pce set);


I side folded my white card. Adhered a piece of Bazzill monochromatic texture light pink cardstock leaving a 1/8" border all around. Stamped the "Happy Birthday" around the edges using Distress "Picked Raspberry".

The cone flowers are made from 1/2" and 3/4" textured paper circles. After the cones were shaped and glued, I hit the edge with the Raspberry, then touched the ink with a wet paint brush to make the ink bleed and diffuse. Adhered the cones to another smaller circle then added the large pink rhinestone.

As I mentioned above, the colorful flowers are die cut from alcohol decorated Yupo. The other roses are die cut from Reader's Digest gold edged pages, I cut of the gold edge part for the little leaves and the rest I die cut using Die-Namics "Royal Roses" set. I then added a yellow ladybug...

The ivy (Creative Expressions "Trailing Ivy" set) die cut from white cardstock, then embossed, then painted with Distress acrylic Dauber "Peeled Paint" all over, dried and hit the leaves again with a "Forest Moss" pad, then touched here and there with dauber "Spun Sugar" and wiped excess off with my finger.

Stamped the quote on white cardstock using Versafine Black Onyx, clear embossed. Die cut with Spellbinders "Scalloped Ovals" and ran thru my machine again to emboss the edge, then sponged a bit of pink around the edges. Adhered to front.

Die cut the butterfly (Memory Box "Kaleidoscope BFly") from more of the Yupo. adhered it to some text paper, fussy cut around and adhered it with a glue gun to the card front.

On the inside, stamped the wild roses (Magenta) inking with Distress mini pads (spun sugar, picked raspberry, mowed lawn & black soot) misted with water and stamped. Stamped the quote, removing the word "home" using the Versafine black and clear embossed. Inked the heart and flourish with the black, masking off the other side of the flourish, then stamping and clear embossing. Applied Quickie Glue and sprinkled with Stickles dry glitter "Thistle".
