Playing with flowers

Hi folks!  I hope you are all enjoying a nice weekend!

I've been enjoying my three day weekend and doing lots of creating...there is a new Heartfelt Creations release coming up that I've been creating with, but I won't be sharing those with you unit the release....and I've also been working on some other cards using flowers as embellishments, which I'll share with you today.

To start with, I remembered a tutorial I'd seen online at Lisa's website to make fabulous looking prima type flowers using ordinary flower punches.

Here was my first attempt:

After that I played some more to try and get it right and managed to make some more used here, on this card featuring a free digi from TLC:

And then in a rush to finish off the third card (dinner plans tonight...) I grabbed a flower I'd snagged from a friend of mine that she had in her sewing kit (for costumes):

Tomorrow I think we have to do yard work, so probably no crafting, sigh, but I'll be back again on Wednesday with something else christmassy to share again :-)  Happy crafting to you!
