Where Flowers Bloom

Good Evening. I thought I was just addicted to cake and chocolate but I am addicted to the Fresh Cut Picot dies, paper flower embellishments (https://claritystamp.com/search?type=product&q=paper+flowers) and the floral moon groovi plate. I cannot stop using these on everything. And I used the parchlet plates ... Again!


These are the Picot Dies & Groovi plates I used:
- Alphabet A5 Square Groovi Plate Mate
- Alphabet and Numbers A4 Square Groovi Plate Mate
A6 Square Groovi Plate Inset
- Fresh Cut Dies - Nested squares, Nested Circles
- Nested squares picot outlines (GRO-PA-41035-15)
- Nested circles picot outlines (GRO-PA-41069-15)
- Tina's Daisy Flowers Parchlet (GRO-FL-40972-01)
- Tina’s Wild Flowers Parchlet (GRO-FL-40974-01)
- Floral Moon (GRO-FL-40446-03)
- Flower Rounds Groovi Go! Safer Plate (GRO-FL-41027-20)

1.)  On soft tone blue parchment, with the cutting side of the picot die down on the matt side of the parchment, cut the largest square. On regular parchment, cut the circle using the 3rd from outside die and a window using 3rd from inside picot die.

2.) On the back, attach the parchment to the corresponding Groovi plate and emboss the double outlines for the square and circle.

3.) To emboss the circles inside the window on the blue parchment, attach the round piece on the blue parchment on the front, turn the work over to the back and emboss the double outlines.

4.) On the blue parchment, emboss the parchlet designs in the corners and along the sides of the square and the words in the window. On the regular parchment, emboss the floral moon design around the circle.

5.) On the back, colour using the Perga Colours Exclusive pens and on the front paint gold dots using the Kuretake gold mica paste (https://claritystamp.com/products/gold-mica-paste-30g?variant=32378516289).

6.) Layer and mount the pieces onto regular parchment and white card using brads and stick this on 7"x7" folded white card. Stick the paper flowers around the window. I used didi glue dots but Silicone glue would work too. If you use a lot of flowers, a wet glue will make the parchment buckle but if you were using only a few flowers, a teeny tiny amount of Perga Glue would be fine.


I hope you enjoyed today's project and looking forward to seeing everyone's creations using the dies, paper flowers and any of the other products which are all available from https://claritystamp.com.

Take care. Enjoy.

Love and laughter
Tina
