Ruffled Flower Tutorial

Top of the morning!  Yesterday quite a few of you asked me to develop a tutorial to show you how to do the white flower that was on my pocket card.  I was only too happy to oblige so I cooked up a new card with the same flower as a sample to use during the tutorial.  For the round base of the flower I used Spellbinders Big Scalloped Circles LG and attached Spellbinders Nested Leaves, both are embossed with Spellbinders Floral and Stone Impressabilities.   The flower itself is made with a border punch!!  Then along the bottom I used Spellbinders Banner Basics One and Spellbinders Banner Basic Three for a little bit of whimsy and to show my tiny sentiment.

The video to show you how I made it is here:

OMGoodness, YouTube was having a little tantrum today.  It kept kicking me out or was telling me my little 5 minute video would take 6 hours to upload.  It’s behaving itself now, I’ve been trying to get this up for hours but thankfully it’s finally up.  Enjoy.  I’ll see you soon!!  By the way, the name of the EK Success Border Punch is Chinese Knot Chain.

    Hi Becca,
    I love the ruffled flower. On the first card you showed us with this flower it had pink backing petals that looked like you had stamped a design in white. Is that stamped or is that the paper? I would love to know how you did that also. Are the pink petals a die cut or a punch or what. Please share how you did the pink petals.
    Just love your work.
    Thanks so much for sharing your talent with all of us.

  • RubyApril 28, 2011 - 11:31 am

    Love this technique and your wonderful video. I wish I could see through your eyes as you always see a die-cut, punch and punch border in a new and wonderful way. Tks for sharing!ReplyCancel

  • Donna RApril 28, 2011 - 11:35 am

    Becca, thanks so much for the great tutorial video. I’m curious what kind of tool you are using to score? It obviously wasn’t the normal tool that comes with the Scor Pal. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us. I learn so much from you. Have a wonderful day.ReplyCancel

  • Francie (Montreal)April 28, 2011 - 12:08 pm

    You must be the fastest ‘scorer and accordion folder’ south of the 49th parallel. Kidding. Seriously though, I just love the card and the ruffled flower tutorial. It can be dressy or casual depending on what you attach in the middle. A very helpful flower to have in one’s repertoire. You somehow manage to keep coming up with new design elements that make your blog the coolest, freshest one around. Thank you again for all you do.ReplyCancel

  • BernieApril 28, 2011 - 12:13 pm

    I find myself using Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive often because I like that it sets up quickly. I checked “you didn’t name mine” because with regular white glue there is the long drying (set up) time involved.ReplyCancel

    Please keep the people in Alabama in your prayers after the devastating tornado that went through here last night. I live about five miles away from where it started. God was looking out for me and my family yesterday.

    Becca what a pretty flower and it’s so airy too. A great demo and I’m going to do one now myself. Well I think I have to get the punch first. ha ha.
    But now I’m looking at my other punches to see if I can find another punch that I could try this with.

    Lovely! However I’m afraid of it getting crushed in the mail. I found a medallion on You Tube that was hot glued to a one inch punched circle, so that’s what I did with my medallions and hot glued a button on top. Made it so much easier putting it together.ReplyCancel
