The joy of flowers

For my first stamp club night a few weeks ago I made some lovely cards showing my Paper Doll ladies lots of different techniques on how to make flowers! I took my inspiration from many of my favourite blogs and came up with these:
Flowers made from ribbon:

These lovely ribbon flowers I saw at Sarah Klass's blog, she's even done a video to explain how to make them!! I love how pretty they are and their many uses, hair clips, headbands, cards etc.

Flowers with the scallop punch: Next is a flower idea from our Impressions magazine we get every month as part of being a Stampin. Up! Demonstrator, the button has been made with crystal effects and layering small circles of card stock together. I love this card

Flowers made with card stock:

I originally saw this idea at My Favourtie Things by Dawn (but I can't see the exact place right now) These flowers are really simple, all you do is rip card stock in circles and layer them to make the petals!! I love these flowers you can get such great results with so many different colours!
Then lastly was the wonderful DSP flower I saw over at TravellingMama, Tina also has step by step instructions on how to create these amazing flowers!
Flowers with DSP:
So there you have it! Which one is your favourite???

Have a super duper day, I hope it's full of flowers whether it be in the form of a hug, a smile or a friendly voice!
Smiles Sharnee :0)

All cards were made from Stampin. Up! products, if you'd like to know something specific please contact me. (far too much to list!!)

I love them all but my fave's are the ribbon flowers. What a great idea to use them for hair clips!
