Scrunched Flower Tutorial

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design (The Best Kiss) and Spellbinders Labels One Card Front - tutorial at
I’m so tickled to share this morning!  I’m sharing the flower tutorial you all have been requesting and there was no better way to show those flowers off than with a new Quietfire Design sentiment – a cuddly, lovely, romantic one at that!! As you know, I’ve been so smitten with scrunched paper flowers as of late.   They are so easy to make and after seeing the inspiration on Pinterest, I set about to figure out how to ease them into my workflow.   To me the key is to have a nicely balanced die template that will allow you to work with the wet paper without tearing the petals off and for this I’m using Spellbinders Garden Blooms (by A Gilded Life).

My 6″ square card features another outstanding set of new stamps by my friend Suzanne Cannon with Quietfire Design, it’s called The Best Kiss.  This is definitely for the heart throb in your life and I say its a promising candidate for new found romance, wedding and anniversary or just to show love.  It’s my first time to try out a couple of new Spellbinders that have been sitting on the shelf – the background is Spellbinders Labels One Card Front.  I embellished the Card Front with Spellbinders Labels One and the accent piece from Spellbinders Imperial Square (there are four pieces, they are all turned upside down and glued behind Labels One).

So here’s the video showing how I made the flowers:

Stamps:  Quietfire Design – The Best Kiss
Craft Paper
:  Neenah Classic Crest – Natural White – 80lb smooth, Bazzill, Papertrey Ink
Ink:  Versafine – Onyx Black
Accessories:  Spellbinders Labels One Card Front, Spellbinders Labels OneSpellbinders Imperial Square Spellbinders Garden Blooms (by A Gilded Life), Recollection Pearls, May Arts Silk Ribbon, clear embossing powder

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I actually made a card with the flowers and ribbon shown in the video and I’m hoping I can share it next week!  So who’s putting flowers on their list of things to try next?

Question Parking Lot:
In case you wondered . . .
I used Papertrey Ink paper for the blooms on the card above.  For the video I used Coredinations – you should do fine with almost any paper you choose :-)

I prefer to dry petals over night but they can be dried with a heat gun if you’re impatient.  The heat gun makes the petals more brittle in my opinion.

No snipping needed on top petal if you want an open hollow in the center of your flower.  Snip the center, roll and glue to fill in that hollow with top petal.

The extra petal I made in the video looks much like the spritzed petals I made except the coloring is more subtle and the overall color is the color of the original paper.

    Morning Becca, Thank you, thank you, thank you, for this tutorial. I adore these flowers, I would never have known how to do this without your tutorial, the outcome is stunning, as is your card showcased here too.
    My new Great Granddaughter, Sophia Grace, was born yesterday (Sunday) at 6.23 pm weighing 7 lb 1 oz. I can hardly wait for them to come home so that I can have a ‘hold’, but will have to wait as don’t think they will be home today. My Daughter sent me a piccie by text the minute that she had been born, adorable.
    Lots of love from Patricia xxReplyCancel

    Thank you so much for sharing the tutorial, I have seen something similar done with specialty papers and it is good to know it can be done with regular paper. Beautiful background and framing of the sentiment on your card too!ReplyCancel

    Stunning work Becca, I will have to watch the video later though. Fabulous sentiment, so original.

    Looks like a lot of work, but the out come is well worth it. I’m going to true this. Thanks for sharing.ReplyCancel

  • Mary H.March 30, 2015 - 9:53 am

    Awesome. So happy to have this great video to start my week showing these lovely flowers. I’m flower challenged, so this one was most helpful. Would also love to see you do a video showing how to make an envelope that would work to mail these dimensional cards. I think that’s one reason I don’t try harder with flowers like this, because I never have an envelope that works well to mail a card with this kind of dimensional embellishment. Have a great week Becca. Hugs & Blessings.ReplyCancel

  • Bonnie ThrasherMarch 30, 2015 - 3:20 pm

    Thank you for posting this lovely video. Your flowers have been driving me wild trying to figure out if it was a specialty paper or what. They looked like they would be hard to make, but looks pretty easy now. Maybe I have a die that would work. I don’t have that one. Or I may just have to buy that one with some others you have shown us lately. Thanks again and God Bless.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,
    Your cards are so beautiful and your tutorials are terrific! Is that purple background layer raised? If so, is it only raised behind the layered sentiment? It looks so beautiful, but so delicate! Thanks.ReplyCancel

  • Anne (UK)March 31, 2015 - 12:53 pm
