I have to do a quick post on the awesome flowers from the Happy Times Stamp Set. While I have to fussy cut them, I love how you can shape them and give them dimension this way:
I use my piercing tool but anything round and even your fingers will allow you to roll/shape the petals and leaves.
I found that I liked to distressed the edges of the cut flowers and leaves with a sponge dauber and ink pads. I liked the shading and feel like it make my fussy cutting look better.
Here I added more layering by having the ribbon lay under the petal of one of the flowers. With the base stamp for the flower laying flat and by rounding the petals of the flower, I think the flowers look great. I added gems and/or sequins in the center of the flowers.
I also used a shimmer spray to shimmer to the leaves and flowers. Don’t miss out on getting this Happy Times paper for free with a $60.00 order and the stamp set for $17.95. You’ll also be able to get the SOM for $5.00 with this order AND cutting guides/directions for layouts and cards featuring the paper and stamps.
