Thinking of You Flowers


These flowers were made from printer paper, and a bumble bee, daisy and snowflake punches. For each flower I punched out 16 bees, and cut off their heads, wings and legs. Then I painted them using a marker scribbled onto acetate, and an aquabrush. Once dried they were shaped and stuck onto 8 petaled daisy shapes, in the same way as the No Tools Flower. I punched two snowflakes out of a pale yellow paper for the centre of each flower. The flowers are arranged on fern leaves punched from Old Olive card, and mounted onto Barely Banana card, then onto Rose Red with Very Vanilla 5/8" gross grain ribbon tied around it. The Thinking of You stamp is from the Sincere Salutations set. The card, ribbon and stamp are all by Stampin' Up. The Rock Fern and Bee punches are Leone Em, the daisy (not visible) is Woodware, and the snowflake punch is EK Success.

GORGEOUS! You have so much creativity and talent Joanne!
Every time I think it's about time I'd try one of your No Tools Flowers, I return to your blog, look again at your cards and give up :D.
I will never be able to make such wonderful cards.
