So Ive been playing with my punches again..... and come up with some ideas to make flower petals with punches you normally wouldn't think to by taking advantage of the scallops and patterns on their edges. I love the build a blossom punch from the USA but our catalogue doesn't have this ..... hopefully one day they will carry these. My inspiration came from a card I see on a blog called Stamp 4 fun.net and Selene's flowers were made with sizzix dies. You could also try using different die shapes e.g. spellbinders nestibilites if you don't have some of the punches... idea from myneed2craft :)
You will find all the details below plus a video showing how I made the modern label flower petals. One last tip is this pic below, it shows how I photograph my cards, I use two 12 x 12 white card backings that come with the stampin up designer papers and lay one on the table and the other slotted into a punch that's laying on its side. This works well as a make shift card studio especially if you don't have a lot of room to keep one set up at all times!
I hope you have enjoyed this
Blessings to you
