past due tutorial

I've had this tutorial of pictures sitting on my computer for awhile now and figured I better share it before this stamp set is gone, with the occasions mini in just a few days.  I'm so sad because this has been my favorite mini EVER!

If you came to scrapbooking class this month you used this stamp set and punch on our pages but I don't think everyone saw HOW we got it ready to stamp and punch.

#1 Start with a 2 1/2 x2 1/2 piece of cardstock and Punch the Blossom Petals Punch. 

#2 place the Petal Stamps rubber side down into the holes form the punch (shown in pic 1&2).

#3 Firmly push the clear block (size D) over the 3 petals.  

#4 Ink the petals in a light color and stamp on a piece of 2 1/2 x 11" strip of paper. You be able to fit 4 of these on this strip of cardstock. However, you'll need 5 sets of petals to complete the flower.  

#5 choose a darker ink color for the smaller petal images to do the TWO STEP part of this flower. 
Using the smaller petals repeat steps #2& #3. 

This will create the 2 step look - slightly off center but so much quicker then stamping them one by one. You'll see the end result is FABULOUS! 

#6 Now place the "mask" you punched in step #1, over the stamped images and stamp your leaf inside the hole with a lighter color green. 

#7 stamp the 2 step image over top after removing the "mask" to create the 2nd layer of the leaf. 

#8 Once you have created 5 sets of these petals and leaves use the punch to punch them all out at once!  

To create the blossom  that looks like this....

Punch a 1 3/4 circle, add 5 pop dots that have been cut in half around the outer edge.  

Apply petals overlapping in the center and curl with a bone folder. 

Use glue dots to attach the next level of petals. 

Here's how I added the leaves to the back with glue dots 

   I had a few extra petals and leaves left over so I added a cut little flower to the inside of this card!!!

I hope you can see how great the Build A Blossom Stamp Set  #121994 clear $18.95 and the Blossom Petals punch #121808 $16.95 work together. If you haven't already, go order it before it's gone!
