For the traditional yellow and brown flower, I inked the edges of the petals. For the other two, I used two colors of cardstock along with white and on the white petals I inked a script background stamp using matching ink colors and created some texture that way. I also inked the edges of the petals.
I will be demonstrating how to make the traditionally colored Black Eyed Susan in my tutorial below.

The card below was created using the center piece only of the Black Eyed Susan. I think it looks a little like the purple clover weeds you see growing in fields in the summer. Always think outside the box with your dies so you can get even more use out of them!
Hi friends. This week we have a great new Mother’s Day themed challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog. I hope you’ll head over and link up a project to share with us.
For this challenge I created a Mother’s Day card and necklace gift set. I sprayed the necklace flowers with a clear matte spray for protection. I created the flowers and then adhered them to a small base of white cardstock for stability. The chain was attached to that base piece under the flowers.
I created bi-color petal layers for my roses. On the white layers I used an old script stamp with pink ink to create some texture and I also inked all the edges. I shaped the petals with a foam pad and stylus tool and assembled the layers to create the flowers.
This pretty gift set is a great example of what you can create with very few dies. This stunning set only requires 3 dies and these dies are very versatile. If you are just starting out with your die collection, these three will take you a long way.

My pretty butterfly image is from the wonderful Butterfly Circles Digital Collage sheet from PollysPaper. This collage sheet has 12 fabulous butterfly circle images for a wide variety of projects. I love having a variety of pretty digital images on hand to pull together cards rather quickly.

While I do love to create my own hand-made paper flowers, sometimes you just don’t have time. A great collection of Mulberry Paper Flowers in your stash is perfect for times like this. I love the pretty roses around the bottom of my image.
