Technique Twist # 23 3-D Flowers

What's the Technique Twist challenge this week?
We have decided to challenge you with making 3-D Flowers. 
I say bring on the punches...with a little punch and smoosh of the paper
it's easy to make your flowers stand up and shout!

Grab the Badge! 

I thought I would get a little help from my friends with a sketch from 
the Paper Craft Crew


And this wonderful color inspiration at the ColourQ


If you have been following my blog, you know that I have been on a Vellum Kick lately. So here I go again...Using the FANCY FOIL stuff. It's such an easy way to place a touch of elegance on your card. Not only that, I also used the Gold Foil sheets. It really adds a shiny gold impact to the base of my flower.

More gold accents were added to the Scalloped Tag (2" x 4 1/2" long) using the Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape. I took my bone folder and pressed across the tape after I applied it to the Tempting Turquoise Tag. This really helped the darker color to saturate the white tape with the color underneath showing through. The polka dot vellum on the side panel is punched from a 2 1/2" Circle.

Making the Twisted Flower......
you will need

Gold Fancy Foil Design Vellum, Gold Foil Sheet, Pansy Punch, Pool Party Bakers Twine, Glue Dots, bone folder, paper snips

1. Using the Pansy Punch , punch 1 Gold Foil flower and 3 Vellum flowers.
    ( Tip: when punching the vellum be sure and include as many of the gold
            dots as possible )
2. Using the tip of a bone folder, curl the vellum petals in an upward direction.
3. Layer the vellum flowers on the foil flower using glue dots and off setting 
    each additional layer so the flower petals don't line up.
3. Wrap a piece of Pool Party Bakers Twine around the bone folder about 10 
    times. Slide the little bundle off the tip of the bone folder and tie an 
    additional piece around the center of the loops (bow)and knot it.
4. Using your paper snips, clip the loops. Hold the center knot and Fold in half.
    Now you can give it a little haircut if the ends don't match up evenly.
5. Place glue dots in the center of the flower and attach the center knot of the
    Pom Pom to the center of the flower.
6. At this point I took the vellum petals and gathered them up toward the 
    center of the flower to really create the 3-D effect.

Make some pretty little patterned leaves with the Bird Builder Punch. With Tempting Turquoise ink, stamp a  Fresh " HELLO" banner with the Perfect Pennants stamp set. It's easy to perfectly cut out the stamped banner with the coordinating framelits , a Big Shot machine and Magnetic Platform.
