Try Stampin On Tuesday Challenge #4
It is that time of week again to post my challenge card for the http://trystampinontuesday.blogspot.com/, challenge #4. I worked hard on this on trying out some new things. I have been wanting to make some of the new flower cards that have been showing up on stampin up sites but just did not know how to get started. Not only am I blessed with the most wonderful products from stampinup but can say the best part of my day is first thing each morning when I talk to my sister Sandi, whom just happens to be my up-line. Now how much better can a day start than talking to your sister for a hour or so....but most of that hour we are talking stamping!!!!!!! "My best part of the day" She coaches, pushes, and sometimes bribes me to get my cards done. But today we talked about how to start the crunching up of the flowers with spraying water on the petals and smooching them up like a spit ball. Then carefully unfolding them leaving lots of wrinkles and letting them dry. Well I was not too sure I could do it and had a hard time finding the perfect punches for my design but what do you think?
