Snowflake flower/stars

Pin It

Hello, This is the very first post for my new blog. I have some fun new ideas in the works so bookmark me and check back soon. I thought i'd kick this off with some new cards ive made inspired by the very talented people at Splitcoaststampers. I've only just started posting there but hope to get to know them more. Here is my twist on the tag punch stars......i've used different size circle get a different effect.

So heres a quick tutorial on how i did thess fun snowflake/stars.

Circle Punch Snowflake flower/Stars
you will need:
1.1" circle punch
1" circle punch
3/4" circle punch
Card stock
Stamping ink
Kindy glitz gliter

Ok lets start first punch out your 3/4" circle then place your 1" punch in upside down over your 3/4" hole. Line it up so you have a nice spacing all the way around to form a ring and punch.
You will need to punch 6 of these. Arrange these in a flower shape gluing as you go.

Add the snow flake that youve edged with ink and connect with a brad, top with kindy glitz gliter. Please Note this is how i did both snowflakes on these 2 cards. But the white card was done using a 1.1" and 1" punches which will give you a finer rim circle. I quite like this look, very delicate. To make the pointed flower snowflake with a hanger you need to snip off each of the outside petals but one, using this to connect ribbon. The last pic to shows you in green where to cut.Well i hope you have enjoyed this...Valita

A thought for today

Always be full of joy in the Lord; I say it again rejoice!
Let everyone see that your are unselfish and
condsiderate in all that you do.
