Giving your Heart + Fabric Flower Tutorial

This pictures show the glamour dust on her dress
and little headband.

Good Morning all,   I hope you are all keeping well and warm with this very cold spell we are having.  It's -3 just now but fortunately no snow yet.!!!!  

I've made another sweet Valentine's card, this one is for my Grandson's girlfriend and I took a lot of my inspiration from various wonderful challenge blogs.

I've used sweet Tilda with Wrapped Heart colouring her with pro & flex markers, adding some glamour dust to her pinafore and head band.  The flowers are hand made using fabric (mini tutorial below this post)  My hearts are from a Marianne Design Die and have been heat embossed using Rangers Bridal embossing powder.  The little stick pin is also hand made using various beads etc.

As I said earlier my inspiration came from the wonderful Challenge blogs that I'm entering my card into this week.  Without further ado here they are:

TOMIC Challenge:  Would like to see Valentine and Hearts this week

Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge:  Would love to see Shabby Chic/Vintage this month.

Just Magnolia & Hanglar Stanglar Challenge:  This months Special Challenge is an Anything Goes with the option of Valentine.

Creatalicious Challenge:  Would like to see some LOVE  and you have to use a Punch Border, Ribbon, Flowers and Bling.

The Pretty Little Ribbon Challenge:  Would like to see your Valentine Creations this week.

Mini Flower Tutorial

This is the ingredients for my hand made flowers.  

I started with the 4 smallest dies from Spellbinder Build a Flower 

I used white interface material, some Tulle and Organza material and cut out 6 of each size die. this will give you enough for 3 flowers.  I doubled over my material to save time and cut them on my Big Shot.

Once you've separated your flowers all you need to do is layer them up. I started with Tulle, then interface and finally organza, largest to smallest die cuts.  I used glue dots to adhere them.  Finishing off with a Viva Decor pearl pen to create the centre.

These are my completed flowers:

Only By His Grace said...

Oh my goodness!! This is so beautiful. Those flowers are to die for. How clever of you and a great tutorial too. Now to go and buys some tulle and organza. Not forgetting the interface material.
Oh no! I don't have that Spellbinder die set. Lots of punches but I don't think it would work with punches. Anyhow I'm getting carried away.
I love the softness of your card and your coloring is lovely.
I give you ten out of ten.
Hugs Maz
