Pearls - Swirls & Blog Candy Winner

Good Morning!

Well it is Monday and the beginning of another week. This is a busy week for me. I have to finish my final evaluations and then my daughter and I are flying out to San Francisco to find some place for her to live for the next year. It will be a whirlwind trip as we are only there 2 days to get everything done. Don't worry I have worked all weekend to have some goodies for you to look at.

Monday means a new challenge over at Late Night Stampers. The challenge this week is to use pearls and/or swirls on your card. I remembered a card I did previously that uses a flower and a string of pearls and I thought it would be fun to take that idea and see what else I could come up with.

I found a sketch at Just Add Ink that I thought would be a nice one to try. So that is where I began. I wanted to try and create a larger carnation since I had success with a smaller one. I used the stamp from Petal Pizzazz and did a second generation stamping. I then cut it out and also followed the petal lines and cut the petals apart. I also stamped the fine flourish and using the scallop circle punch and punched out some circles. I then cut the petals apart. I ran all of the flowers through the crimper many, many, many times to break down the fibers of the flowers. Finally I used the piercer to put a hole for my brad. After I put the brad in all the layers, I scrunched all the layers towards the center then slowly separated them. Then I just had to put my layers together. Here is the sketch and my creation.
