DIY Floral Embellishments with Kira

April 24, 2018

Hey friends!  It’s Kira and I am back with a 12×12 layout I created with some pretty epic DIY floral embellishments.

I was immediately drawn to the flower in the Chin Up Buttercup stamp, and knew I wanted to stamp a bunch of them out and fussy cut them and create an explosion of floral goodness.  So I stamped them all out in black and fussy cut them all out and then realized I actually didn’t really like them in black.  One crafty night wasted!!  That’s okay though because it led me to my next idea.

I decided the flowers needed to be in color.  And I am currently crushing on vellum.  So I stamped the flower out on some vellum in a variety of colors.  But since I knew I wanted to use a strip of this wood grain paper on my background, I didn’t feel like the flowers would stand out enough.  Enter idea #2.

I thought it might look cool to add some patterned paper behind my vellum and stick with a monochromatic color scheme.  And to make my life easier, I turned the stamp into a cut file and made my Cricut do all the work for me.  I cut them out at slightly larger than the stamp itself: 1.1″ to be exact.

Then it was just a matter of fussy cutting the vellum flowers and adhering them with just the tiniest bit of glue to the die cut flowers.  But since you can see through vellum, I needed to do something to cover up the glue spot.  This was a perfect time to add a little more texture to my embellishments.  I stitched a simple French knot right in the center in the same color as each of the flowers.

Then I just had to layer them onto my page in an eye pleasing way!  I also stamped some leaves from Bloom Where You Are Planted on some vellum, fussy cut them and tucked them around the flowers.  I am so happy with how this layout turned out!

Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time,

Kira
