Sassy Flowers & Jbelle Tuesday!

June15 blk

Making our own flowers...that's our Sassy Cheryl's Challenge for today! You should play along with us...just use a Sassy Cheryl's digi and link to the challenge blog. You could win a $5 gift certificate ya know!

June15I used Triple Star Bear and colored her with Copics. I sponged the edges with Distress inks. The stars have Sakura glitter pen on them and she has a few white gel pen accents.

June15 clsupThat sweet paper is My Mind's Eye from Jacksonbelle Embellishments. Don't forget, Jbelle is closing her virtual doors and right now everything....EVERYTHING is 50% off!
Through the month of June the
Jbelle Rockstars are using their favorite products.

June15 SB I used these 3 Spellbinders dies for my flower, one piece each. This is the flip side of the plaid.
*cheater tip* I cut the "flower" out of the plaid layer..the Top Note layer hides the holes and saves cutting into another piece of paper! 
June15 flower pcsI cut a wedge out of each of the 3 pieces, sponged the edges with Distress ink, then snipped down between scallops. (I thought of taking the picture AFTER they were glued together! duh..., but you'll get the idea). I snipped off the pointy bottoms too, and curled the petals with my fingernail.
The cut out wedges end up being the flower center.
Just nest the layers, largest to smallest, gluing as you go along.

June15 flowerI added some Martha Stewart punched leaves that I ran through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder...just because.
