Creped Filter Paper Flower Card

Happy Friday to you!  Another week, come and gone.  On one hand, I don't like that time passes by so quickly. But on the other hand, it means that spring will soon be here! I can't wait for green grass and flowers.  This has been a tough winter with lots of snow, ice storms, power outages that lasted over a week, etc. So I am rather anxious for the season to change! LOL  On that note, I made a pretty little flower for you today, using Creped Filter Paper:

 To make the flower I simply cut out 8 pieces of creped paper using the Floral Frames Collection (I used the 2nd smallest framelit).
 Floral Frames Framelits Dies

Then I mixed a few drops of Summer Starfruit reinker and water together in an empty button container and dipped the flowers into the coloured water.  Then I took my Calypso Coral Ink pad and squeezed it in my hands before opening, which puts ink onto the inside lid.  When you open it up just dip into the inked lid with the aqua painter and add the colour to flower. Then I stacked all the flowers together and used a mini brad to hold them together.  Starting with the top flower, I scrunched each layer and voila! You've got yourself a pretty little flower!!!

Colours: Calypso Coral, Soft Sky and Pistachio Pudding.
I embossed the base of the card with the exclusive "Decorative Dots" embossing folder that you can get for FREE during Sale-a-Bration. "My Friend" was stamped with versamark and embossed in gold.  I used "Chalk Talk" stamped in Soft Sky for the decoration behind the flower.

Supplies Used:
Table built using Stampin' Up! Product Table Builder from The Crafty Owl.

I'm so glad the weekend is here!  Tonight is my 'Wine and Craft' with my 8 of my girlfriends.  We'll be making a pinterest craft that we voted on (sharpies on mugs and wine glasses).  I've got a few ideas I want to try with this technique, using my stamps - I'll share photos with you on Monday.  So I'm off to make some home made pizza (see recipe page) for our evening and get the house tidied up. :-)

Enjoy the day and HAPPY STAMPING!
