Making Repeat Impression's Dimensional Flowers

Good morning!  Don't you just love Repeat Impressions new Flower Power Series!  Remember they come as individual flowers or the whole set on unmounted cling.  Today's post maybe a little long - but I've gotten carried away with these flowers! -- I really like them.  So here are the supplies you might need

Flower shaping tools:
mat - (can use an old mouse mat)
shaping tools or
a Bloom Impressions tool
embellishments
favorite Repeat Impressions outine flower stamp
designer paper with small details

here I have stamped my flowers, fussy cut and gathered some embellishments

My next step is to shape the flowers with either the Bloom Impressions tool or with the shaping tools & a mat.  Here is the Kathy's flower outline stamped on some designer paper that has small detailing.


Here I have cut out the center of Kathy's Flower Outline and place the whole flower in center of the Bloom Impressions tool.  Then they were stacked using liquid adhesive.


This center flower has been shaped with flower shaping tools.  The last steps are to embellish the centers with prills, pearls or gems and attach to your card.

Here are two cards made with the layered Repeat Impressions Flowers.  On the first card Merry Christmas was  stamped in the center of a stitched circle die.  The second card uses the new YOU cling stamp set and the Daisy Outline stamp.

Thanks for looking at my cards -- happy stamping!

Project of the Week for Repeat Impressions

Hi Joy here today and it is my turn to do the Project of the Week for Repeat Impressions.  I'm wanting to share a new trick I learned this last week.    The following pictures will show you how to center a sentiment or image in a window.  This is especially useful for the rubber stamps that are not clear.

1.  Cut out the window using your favorite cutting machine.  Here I'm showing the sentiment I want
     centered.

2.  Here I have laid open the card
     Use a little washi tape to secure the card to a grid mat.
     Center the sentiment or image using the grid lines in the window

3.  Ink up the stamp and close the back of the card to the front and gently press down on the backside of the card.

Easy - Peazy!!!  I love centering my sentiments and images this way - don't need a Stamp-a-ma-jig or Misti or any other tool.

Finished card
The sentiment is called A Friend and the flowers stamped on paper and vellum are from the new series called Flower Power.

Thanks for looking at my Project of the Week.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
