Spring Has Sprung.....

Are you as ready for spring as I am?

It has been so pretty and warm (high 60's) here the last couple of days that I can't help but believe spring must be just around the corner!  I know that we will have at least one more cold front to move in before spring is actually here.  And, I can predict exactly when it will be...2 days AFTER I move all my potted plants out of the garage....count on it!

One great thing about craft can be any season you want it to be!  So, in my craft room....
it is officially

I made this awesome flower using Mother's Day Bouquet.
*I used Flower number 7, using six layers ranging from 3 inches down to 1/2 inch.
*After stacking the layers, I attached them together using a brad in the center.
*Then I sprayed each layer (one at a time) with Glimmer Mist (Iridescent Gold) and folded them up towards the brad.
*After everything was dry, I sort of peeled back the layers, curling the ends down.
*The leaves are also sprayed with Glimmer Mist and curled a bit.

*The "Spring has Sprung" stamp is from Stampology.  After stamping, I used embossing powder to give it a shimmery look.

Here's another angle...

I really love the look of this flower and plan on using this method again!

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you will come back soon!

Until next time,

  4. I am just learning to make flowers and yours is absolutely beautiful! It is such a wonderful accent to the card. I've definitely got to do more practicing! Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. What a gorgeous, gorgeous flower!! What a super idea to spritz it with a bit of glimmer mist too! Great card, Tanya!

  6. Your flower turned out, so wonderful, Tanya. I also loved the texture you used on the football you used in your other post. It worked just perfect. I have't checked the link yet and am not sure I want to, because I think it's going to make me mad. Thanks for sharing your creativity.
