Paper Flowers

 Yesterday, I did quite a bit of rubber stamping, and I was still in the creative mood last evening, So, I decided I would make some stamped and layered paper flowers that I could  use on some spring greeting cards. This card was made for a inspiration mingle swap with a floral theme.
I used my Cricut to create the blue and purple flowers, and the yellow and red flowers I rubber stamped an image that to me looked like it could be a flower. I found that clear stamp at Joann Fabrics marked down to 50 cents. I think it might have been a snowflake, as it was in with all the Christmas stuff. Anyway, I cut the stamped pieces out around the shape of that image. I rubber stamped on the blue/purple petals and layered the cut out pieces to form the flowers.  On most, for the centers of the flowers I curled the petals to form a tight cluster.
The flowers were fun to make.
