flower tutorial using the heartfelt creation sunburst flower stamp set

good evening scrappy friends!

lately, i've been using more and more tailor made floral embellishments on my projects. they are fun to create, the effect is stunning and you always have the exact colour, shape and size you need. 

last week i had the chance to work with more of the limited edition precut stamp sets from heartfelt creations and i can honestly say that i absolutely LOVE them!

for the flowers below i used: 
HCPC 2284 sunburst flower 1 precut set
HCPC 2283 sunburst flower 2 precut set
pattern paper
tissue paper
brown ink
3d foam tape

step 1: scrunch the tissue paper {not too hard} to give it distressed look; stamp multiple flowers onto your chosen pattern and tissue paper {the print doesn't have to be perfect, since you will layer the flowers on top of each other}; cut the blossoms by hand, while separating the first circle of large petals.

 step 2: turn the pattern paper blossoms upside down and emboss the petals; add 3d foam blocks to give dimensional look to your flowers.

step 3: begin layering the flowers - a pattern paper print and the same size tissue paper one on top; repeat this action, but make the next layer one size smaller; when layering make sure that the flower petals are offset from each other;

step 4: the flower center - you can use brads, buttons, eyelets, rhinestones or anything that comes to mind; if you choose a brad, you can use a paper piercing tool to make a hole through all the layers and attach the brad through the hole; fluff up the flower.

you can create pattern and tissue paper flowers; only tissue paper or only cardstock flowers - the choice is all yours!

i hope you enjoyed my tutorial!

come back tomorrow when i'll share a layout i made using these flowers!
