Today I decided to use my PunchBunch "Ovoid" punch to create some different type tulips. The design paper I used is from the Pink Paislee "Spring Jubilee" paper pack. The butterfly is part of the design paper. The doily behind the tulips is the Cheery Lynn "Polynesian Sails Oval" (DL153). On top of that I used the new Spellbinders "Labels 25". A white silk bow was added to complete this card.
A large foam glue dot was added behind the center petal to give the tulip a lot of shape. Center that petal in between the other two petals.
I wanted my tulip to be well "rounded" so I used the round nosed pliers to curl the edges under. Both pieces of these pliers are round so you don't get any creases when rolling the petals. I use these pliers to create almost all my flowers.
For the stems/leaves, I used the Heartfelt Creations "Simple Fillers Stems PreCut set" (HCPC3319). I love this stamp set because you can use it for the stems for most your flowers. I used both the stems with leaves and the stem without leaves. The stamped image was then die cut using the Spellbinders "Label 25" die. You notice part of the design has been cut off. That will be "fixed" in the next photo. I embossed this piece using the "Swiss Dots" embossing Folder.
I stamped the two stems with leaves and cut them out, as shown above, so I could shape the leaves and layer them over the leaves stamped in the "Label 25" die cut.
The tulips were attached to the top of the stamped stems using another large foam glue dot. The leaves were glued over the stamped leaves by just adding a dot of glue to the tips and bottom so they would remain dimensional.
