Tutorial Tuesday, a day late

So I realize it's Wednesday, but I had every intention of posting this yesterday.  If all goes well I plan on posting at least once a month, a tutorial on how to create some extra extraordinary creations you can use with CTMH products.  This time I was playing around in my craft room with a challenge for an upcoming project, using some techniques I've learned along the way I came up with these wonderful flowers using the Pemberly paper pack X7148B and thought I'd share it with you.
Flowers are a passion of mine.  In life and when I create projects and cards and I like to incorporate them into everything I make, if I can.   First, I selected the paper from the Pemberly paper packet, then I cut the pieces out with the AP Cartridge.  I used Image One from page 21 of the AP book.  Cutting the Decorative Layer Flower out in Butter Cup cardstock at 2.5 inches and 1.5 inches. 
Next, cutting the Layered Flower with patterned paper from the packet at 2.5, 2.25 and 1.25 inches.
Then comes the dimension.....step one....emboss the cut pieces in an embossing folder.
Check it, isn't it!
and for more dimension stamp the cut pieces with the word stamp from the set Universal backgrounds D1477....awesome, but wait you're just getting started.
lovin' it!
and for even more of an effect.......
emboss each piece with clear embossing powder Z821.  Use the back of a stamp from the same set, it works great!
Can you see the before and after?  Check out that also gives you the ability to shape the pedals even better.
Now, I'm making 4 flowers so you would only need one of each to make one flower.

Isn't this amazing how the embossing pops out the color of the paper?
Now you're ready to curl under and over each pedal.....notice how I cut between each pedal here for more effect?
Layer the pieces, remembering to curl the layers.
Fluff each flower when done........and
the flowers are complete....
Have a great week and thank you for stopping by :)


  1. Wow! These flowers are amazing! Thank you so much for sharing with us...cant wait for next month!

  2. Holy Bejeepers Girl, now that is a flower!

  3. I love flowers, but being a mom of 3 boys I rarely get to use them or take time to make them. But this I have to try. What a great tutorial. Imagine what it would look like in Florentine.

  4. Love your flowers....I am going to have to give some of those techniques a try.
