It has been a little while since I created a flower tutorial. I have so many ideas in my head. Right now I am waiting on my delivery of Flower Soft. I have a tutorial coming up on creating just stamen.
Donna Salazar Spellbinders Rose Creations die (or any flower punch or die in 3 different sizes L_M_S)
McGill Molding Mat (or mouse pad)
soft chalk ink
Die cut or punch 6 flowers, 2 of each graduated size.
Using your embossing tool press down using a circular motion on each petal until the petals are cup shaped and curl upward.
Repeat on all Flowers until done.
Take one of the smaller flowers and curl in onto itself to form a bud. Place a few dots of adhesive on the inside of the petals to keep the petals in place.
Glue the formed bud onto the other small flower.
Fold the petals up around the bud to create a bigger bud.
Glue the bud on to the medium flower and place a glue dot on each of the petal bases as shown close to the bud.
Bring up the petals around the bud base and hold a few minutes until it holds, then staggering petals, add the next medium flower to the layers curling back the petals slightly.
Add your 2 large flowers the same way. Shape the flower petals a little to fluff up the flower a bit.
Outline your petal edges with Puffy paint and set aside till almost dry. It will be slightly tacky. Approximately 30 minutes depending on the humidity.
Holding the flower with a pair of tweezers, use your heat gun to puff up the paint. Do not hold the gun in one place to long or you will burn the edges. Be VERY careful and work quickly.
When cool, hit the petal edges with a bit of chalk ink , then outline the edges over the puffy paint with Stickles.
Enjoy your new Puffed Roses. They really are beautiful in real life. Rivals any manufacturers roses any time. To add some real sparkle, after hitting the edges with Stickles, before it dries, sprinkle some Diamond Dust over it.
