3D Flowers come to Life

Sometime last spring I received a cute kit in the mail from my Up Line Brian King.  It had a couple of things included in it that I used ages ago, but there were four flowers, two in calypso coral and two in coastal cabana that I had assembled and then left on my work table ever since.  Like several months,  Ok, like 5 months. There, ya caught me. Every time I looked at them I thought, I should make something with those flowers.  I didn’t have want to store them away because I would just forget about them.  So there they sat, until this week.

These are obviously the calypso coral flowers.  When sitting next to two coastal cabana flowers they look very spring-ish.  Maybe that way why I didn’t do anything with them.  They were waiting for fall.  Now these flowers might be retired, but they could easily be recreated with today’s available products, or your handy e-cutter.  There are about 10 layers on each pierced in the center and held together with an antique brad.  Stampin Up Antique Brads 3D FlowersI also sponged more calypso coral on the tips of the petals.  Here’s what they looked like before I sponged them. The one on the left has been sponged, the one on the right has not. The right one was ok, but kinda boring.  I like the depth the sponging added.

But, the leaves, those are all today stuff.  I started with my Flower Frenzy Bigz die for the falling leaves.  I also cut out the two medium 5 petal flowers, all out of Wild Wasabi.  I cut all the petals from the flowers so they were in leaf shapes then spritz each with water and crumpled them up.  This adds texture and the sponged ink I added highlights those wrinkles for a realistic look.Stampin Up 3d Flowers Flower Frenzy Bigz Die Big Shot  For these I used crushed curry, mossy meadow, and cherry cobbler.
