If you are joining us for the "Use Your Stash Blog Hop" you are right on track. WELCOME! You should be coming from Judy Faye's blog.
There are 5 participants this month. If you get lost along the way you can see the entire list of hoppers on Rachel's Blog. Let's get started.
Today I am showcasing using the awesome quilling tool to make those beautiful paper flowers SO very easy to roll up! Here are the simple steps I used. Seriously easy!
First, I cut out the flower and leaves with the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. Then, I crumpled up the flower. :o) No, this is not a necessary step. I was trying to make it look older and well worn.
Don't mind my chipped nail polish. LOL The quilling tool has a slit in the end where the end of the paper flower slips into. Then, it's just as easy as rolling it up!
Once it is all wound up, I unwind it just a bit until it looks close to what I want.
To finish it, I just use some liquid glass on the flower base, and glue it down. I set it aside to dry while I finish the rest of the card. I sanded the leaves, folded them in half and sanded that lightly, too.
Okay, so I don't know what happened to that picture, but I used the Clementine paper to cover the card base. The design of the card was taken out of the Wishes card book. I used some Cashmere card stock and used the stamp of the month to stamp the roses on it. I cut the sentiment tag out with the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, and used a sentiment from the stamp of the month, also. I love it!!!
Now hop on over to Joy's blog for more ideas of using up your stash.
