This flower was totally inspired by Lisa Valentine. I had the dies in my stash for so long and never used them. Lisa makes a flower, and the ideas keep coming. Thanks Ms.Valentine. You got my flower mojo going!!
card stock white or cream
McGill stylus kit, or a ball stylus
Mcgill mat. or you could use a mouse pad
ink for distressing
Daisy flower die, I used Spellbinders
McGill Sun Punch
Die cut 2 large flowers, 2 smaller flowers and punch out 4 suns.
Using a ball stylus in a circular motion, curl up the petals slightly on each petal of the large flowers.
Using the same motion on the 2 smaller flowers, after using a circular motion on a petal, do not lift your stylus, but drag the stylus towards the middle of the flower and this will force the petal to curl upwards and inward.
Both of your flowers should look like this. 2 small cupped flowers.
Using the stylus, using a circular motion, cup your sun shapes.
Your 4 sun shapes should be tightly cupped. This will make the next few steps easier.
Pinch the first cupped shape sun and glue it into another cupped shape.
Scrunch up the sun shape onto the next one and repeat this step until all of your sun shapes are used.
Using your 2 smaller flowers adhere one into the other staggering the petals and then adhere your sun middle into the middle of your layered flowers.
Glue around the inner rim of one of the larger daisy and stack the other layer on top staggering the petals.
Glue around the inner ring of the stacked petals.
Now place your smaller daisy cluster on top of the larger flower cluster. This is your finished flower. Ink the flower if desired and ruffle it up a bit for a shabby look as in the top photo.
The smaller flowers were made the same as the top part of the flower, but instead of using the 2 larger layers, another smaller layer was used undeeath curled the opposite way.September 16, 2011 at 1:49 am #136240
OMG, it's like flowers for dummies and I love it! You have no idea how much I appreciate these step by step tutorials. I really do need it all spelled out for me! Great job, now I need that die…September 16, 2011 at 1:54 am #136242
OK Lisa, question, where'd you get those leaves? Is that a die cut? They are gorgeous!September 16, 2011 at 2:30 am #136243
Exquisite as usual! I can't wait to get those dies, the little tools and start making fleurs again!September 16, 2011 at 2:30 am #136241

Seriously, Lisa, thanks so much for this. I don't even remember what inspired me to pick up this die, but it's been lying at the bottom of the heap because I couldn't think of what to do with it. This is more what to do, this is divine inspiration!!!! !heartSeptember 16, 2011 at 4:08 pm #136251
I can see I'm going to have to invest in some new tools and punches. Thank you so much for the tutorial, it is awesome as usual!September 16, 2011 at 4:38 pm #136252
