A couple of weekends ago, I worked the Graphic 45 booth at Scrapfest. The make-and-take we did was this little flower using the Steampunk Debutante papers. I have made a video on making this flower. Instead of inking the flower petals, I am painting them with Shimmerz Choc-o-lot. You can see the shimmer even on this photograph! And of course, I used my trusted Helmar foam dots to put this flower together.
You can easily make this flower for embellishments on your scrapbooking pages or cards. Just make sure all the flower petals are curling upwards :)
Here is the layout I did for AdornIt and using all Helmar adhesives. The photos are from my brief visit to Atlantic City with Michelle and her kids last summer.
I "collaged" the photos in Picasa and print out 4 onto a 4x6 photo. For this layout, I trimmed a few of them down to 2x2 inches to mount onto the AdornIt stickers. I used Helmar Zapdots to pop them out of the page for dimension. You can see that I also popped out that WTG from My Favorite Things. I pieced her together using various papers from AdornIt. It is definitely my go-to stamping technique.
If you love the border punch at the top of the layout, that's a Marvy Uchida punch! The SRM design team members received this wonderful new tool called Clever Lever Quick Borders punch, and I am a punch addict and have already purchased more cartridge for this wonderful tool for my collection :)
While I'm at it, I will post a miscellaneous card I made with WIP's September kit. I so love the Kaiser Scrapbooking papers, sigh... The bicycle came in the kit, and the stamped image is from My Favorite Things. The first of October is only a few days away, I look forward to sharing my October kit creations. There are a couple in there that I quite love :)
