 Emma Lou's Tutorial on creating flowers with the Blazing Poppy Petal Set can be found  here

Instructions: Create a top fold 5 1/2 x 5 1/2" white card base. Cut a base layer from kraft cardstock at 5 1/4 x 5 1/4". Select the designer paper as shown and cut at 5 x 5". Apply Clear Crackle paint to designer paper on left side of the paper, sprinkle with frosting powder and heat set. Apply Designer Dries Clear on the left side of designer paper and apply Teal Gala Glitz. Allow to dry. Adhere the layers to the card base with double sided tape. Stamp the candle with Memento Desert Sand Ink and die cut. I used X-Press Blending Cardstock for the candle because I colored it with Copic Markers. The Candle was colored with the following color combo- (Candle- R81, R85, R89, T2, Flame- E47, E35, Y02, Berries - R30, R35, R39, Leaves- YG11, YG45, G28 G46). The holly leaves were  accented with a white gel pen. Die cut window frame from designer paper from the Winter's Eve Paper Collection. The window frame was sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The light yellow green designer paper was selected to back the window frame. It was sponged with Vintage Photo. 

The Blazing Poppy Petals Stamp Set was stamped on white cardstock with Rhubarb Stalk Memento Ink. The flowers were die cut with the coordinating die. The petals were sponged with Berrylicious Fluid Chalk Ink, misted with water and shaped with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. They were assembled using Designer Dries Clear Adhesive. Power Outage Prills were applied to the center of each Poppy. 

The Classic Leaf stamp set was stamped with Guacamole Fluid Chalk Ink and die cut with coordinating die. The petals were sponged with Guacamole, Chambray and a small amount of Berrylicious Fluid Chalk Ink. The petals were shaped with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and allowed to dry. Clear Crackle Paint was applied to the leaves and dusted with Frosting Powder. The leaves were heat set.  

Die cut the Decorative Medallion from white cardstock. Place clear cardstock under the window frame. Pop the frame up from the yellow-green designer paper with Darice foam strips. Adhere the window to the card on top of the medallion as shown. Adhere the leaves and flowers with a glue gun.

Embellish with various sized dots from a white gel pen to look like snow. Apply more dots in the upper corners with the white gel pen.

What beautiful ideas from all these designers. Your products are so fabulous, and much easier to use than would first appear. I get oohs and aahs every time I give one of my cards. Your stamps give a crisp image and your dies a nice-clean cut. Kudos also to your friendly and efficient Customer Service.
