Golly, time sure does fly! I was supposed to post these videos the first week of February…well, at least it is still February!
We had our monthly demonstrator get together here in FL and I asked a few of the girls who went to the Leadership conference and Regionals in January to share a technique or inspiration they learned there.
This first video is Toni Ballesteros, showing the paper flower originally shown on stage byJan McClurg.
Toni created a great vintage-y easel card – check it out our “LIVE” meeting video!
For those of you who can’t watch the video, I’ll show a few pics so you get the general idea! Jan McClurg demonstrated on stage and I snapped a few pics (click to enlarge):
She used the Stampin’ Up eyelet border punch and then ran it thru the crimper several times. She punched a circle, 1-3/8 or 1-3/4 (can’t remember) and covered it with Sticky Strip tape. Then she scrunched and pleated and ran the paper on the sticky circle til it stopped in the middle.
Tune back in tomorrow to see Paula showing a few ways to use her shimmer paints!
Wow is an understatement. TFS
Thanks, Anne! Have to thank Toni for coming up with the project and being in front of my camera!
Thanks for showing us how to make these great flowers. Here is what I did with it:
Thanks for the awesome tutorial. I love the look of this gorgeous flower and of course your beautiful easel card. TFS
Linda this is just beautiful!
I tried to figure out a few of the items used in the card, but wondered if Toni would mind sharing her “recipe” of cardstock choices, the background stamp on the “whitish” card stock & sentiment on the front of her card towards the bottom. I recognized the small image from the Tiny Tags set & the Very Vintage Wheel.
Gotta love the shabby chic style!
