Latenight Stamper's challenge #15

Good morning everyone and Happy Monday! It's a new week and that means a new challenge from your Late Night Stampers Design Team. This week's challenge was dreamed up by Heidi Michel and Virginia Killmore and it's all about flowers, flowers, flowers!

WOW!! Its time for Challenge #15 already and boy do Viriginia and Heidi love flowers!!! Its time to get out of this blah weather and think SPRING HAS SPRUNG!!

So for our 1st challenge together, we would like to see some “3D paper flower Cards” (Preferably not using Pretties kit flowers). There are a lot of holidays and greetings you will be able to add such as Get Well, Sympathy, Happy Easter, Happy Mother’s Day, Birthdays, Spring Has Sprung, Spring, Spring, Spring!! Do you get the hint? We want to see flowers!! lots of them…. and lots of color. J

Here are my first two samples. Such a fun challenge. You really don't want to miss out on this one. If you are not a member of the Latenight Stampers group yet you can be! All you have to do is click HERE to join.

Tell Sherrill I sent you and you will be a member before you know. Come on over and join the fun!

Both of my cards today are using 100% current Stampin Up and are a part of my You're Hired Again Series

My first card is using punches to create the 3D flower. I used the scallop oval punch, large oval punch, 5-petal flower punch and the boho blossoms punch. I love how the leaves in the dp look as if they belong to this flower.

Here is a close up of the flower.

The butterfly is from the Flight of the Butterfly set.

Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Taken with Teal Whisper White and Urban Oasis dp
Ink: Taken with Teal
Other: scallop oval punch, large oval punch, 5-petal flower punch, boho blossoms punch, lace scallop border punch, jumbo brad

The next card is another fun way to make a flower. I used the One of a Kind stamps set and Boho blossoms punch. The leaves are the scallop oval punch.

Stamps: One of a Kind
Paper: Taken with Teal, Pink Passion, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Pink Passion, Kiwi Kiss
Other: White gel pen, kiwi/white satin ribbon, white organza ribbon, boho blossoms punch, pretties kit for brad, hand held punch, scallop oval punch, top note die

Hope you enjoyed these fun flower cards. Come on and play along.
