Two 4 Tuesday... actually, it's a Three 4 Tuesday!

Two for Tuesday features 2 projects that are similar in either color, theme, layout or embellishment but... with a different twist!

Hi everyone,

I was having so much fun with my flowers ( you know me and my flowers!) that I made 3 cards intead of two! I've used the same sketch and leftover cut-up pieces from a class 2 years ago to created those. what I've changed is the placement of the dsp striped paper and the sentiment and used a different flower technique  for each.

card number one shows the stripes in the upper portion of the card with a pointsettia flower made with the 5-petal punch. 
I then inked around the edge of each flower, sprayed each piece with a homemade shimmer mist and crumpled them. then i dried them with my heat tool and when i unfolded each piece it revealed a nice suede-like texture. I added some pearls in the center.
card number two shows the striped paper toward the bottom...

This time, the flower was made with multiple flower punched shapes through a homemade white glitter CS. This was a lot of fun to do. I also inked the edges of each patterned paper with Whisper White Craft Ink and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice EP.

And the last card shows the stripes in the middle:

This flower was made the same way as the 1st one but I sprayed each piece with a homemade solution of Perfect Pearls by Ranger and water. I added brads in the middle this time.

Have a nice stampin' day !!!
