A Twist at The Technique Twist

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend and a wonderful Mother's Day!  I was spoiled with breakfast in bed, a dozen roses and some new gardening gloves.  I put them to good use yesterday, as the weather here was picture perfect! 
I was so busy enjoying my weekend that I forgot to post about the new challenge over at The Technique Twist!  This time we're twisting our challenge...rather than a technique, we're all about 3D flowers.  For my sample I pulled out some of the oh-so-versatile filter paper and went to town...

Any Occasion card featuring the Feel Goods stamp set and filter paper 3D flowers.
Aren't those flowers pretty?  I made them using the Floral Frames framelits.  Each flower has 20 layers of filter paper diecuts!  You could certainly use less, but your flowers wouldn't be as full. 

I started by die cutting the floral frames - you can cut several layers of filter paper at once - and then spritzed them with some Blushing Bride and Gold Glow Smooch I had in my stash.  If you dont' have any Smooch you could use some rubbing alcohol with reinkers in Blushing Bride and Daffodil Delight in a Stampin' Spritzer.  I layered the coloured die cuts on top of each other and then pierced a hole in the middle.  I inserted a silver mini brad and opened the prongs to secure it.  Then I started scrunching each layer.  Once they were all scrunched I fluffed them up a bit and that's it!  Easy peasy flowers!

Why not try bringing some spring blossoms into your stamping space by creating your favourite 3D flowers.  Then be sure to enter your creation over at The Technique Twist...we'd love to see your work!
