"Wildflowers" Tutorials

Sherri's "Wildflowers" Counterfeit Kit:

"This kit was harder for me to match exactly from my stash, so I looked for inspiration in the kit, then went from there.  As I did with my February kit, I first picked one paper as my focal point and built my kit around that.  I chose the butterfly print first (from the same line as my main kit rub-ons), then chose some basic prints for the others.  I included two printable cards, a woodgrain stamp, and some premade fabric flowers."  For more information on Sherri's Wildflower kit, please go to her blog at http://sherrithompson.blogspot.com/.

Meridy's "Wildflowers" Counterfeit Kit:
I had lots of fun with this kit.  I used lots of new things that I got in JoAnn's new Flea Market line of papers...I couldn't resist buying a few items last month with a Gift Card I received!  Technically, the stuff is from my stash...just my "newer" stash!

Bethany's "Wildflowers" Counterfeit Kit:


"I love the lightness of this kit, but needed to go a bit darker in mine.  Mainly because I am running out of light colored paper that would work.  LOL  The vintage pages are adorable!  I can't wait to decide how to use them!  Check out my Blog for a complet list of my kit contents and more pictures."

Tulle Daisy Tutorial:
Here is a link to learn how to make this flower from tulle.

Carnation Tutorial:

Start off with some tulle and a silk carnation.

Pull the carnation apart into layers.

Cut the tulle into circles; layer tulle and carnation silk petals; fasten the entire flower together with a brad; and finally spritz with some Glimmer Mist for a little added color.
Another variation is a paper carnation.  See the following blog for a tutorial:

  4. You guys are better by far than any kit club imaginable. Every day I log on to see what goodies you have discovered next. I feel like it's the 12 days of Christmas with a daily treat. You guys are the best. Even my wallet would like to say "thank you!"

  11. Thanks for the link to the tulle flower tutorial! I made tutus for both of my daughters so I have lots of tulle scraps laying around, and this is a great way to use them! I made a card with the one I made, you can see it here: http://jessica-createandshare.blogspot.com/2011/03/cards-cards-cards.html
