Beauty in the Simple Things

Other Products: Cut file, White cardstock, Flower sticks, Pan Pastel Flower Coloring Kit, Rusty Hinge Distressed Ink, Ribbon from my stash and die cutting machine.

For more tips on creating with the foam paper & stamens, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/Oma6ctVmUD0.

Instructions: Start by cutting the parts for the centerpiece according to the directions found here out of a combination of white card stock and designer paper from the Beary Fun Retreat Paper Collection. Now it's time for some Foam Fun! Working with foam is fun and I really enjoyed it. The end result is a more realistic flower then the traditional paper flower. 

Let's start with the Enchanted Mums first. Stamp the Enchanted Mum flowers on Art Foam Paper using StazOn Jet Black ink and die cut with the matching die before coloring with DairyLide Yellow and Red Iron Oxide Pan Pastels. Now using your Flower Shaping Tools and the Heat It tool, gently heat the flowers and shape them holding them in place briefly after removing the heat. Once you have your layers formed and assembled finish with the Rock Candy-Small stamens.

Next stamp the Classic Sunflowers on Art Foam Paper using Jet Black ink and die cut with the matching die before coloring with Orange, Yellow Green, Red Iron Oxide and Magenta Pan Pastels. Now using your Flower Shaping Tools and the Heat it tool, gently heat the flowers and shape them holding them in place briefly after removing the heat. Once you have your layers formed and assembled, finish with Assorted Bright-Medium stamens.  

Finally stamp Vines and Leaves from the Classic Rose Collection and the Delightful Daisies Cling Stamp set on white cardstock using Olive Green and die cut with the coordinating dies before distressing with Bamboo Leaves and Rusty Hinge inks. Cut a sentiment from paper pad and adhere on a flower stick, finish with a bow.
