3-D Layered Flower Tutorial

Today I want to show you how you can turn an ordinary flower stamp into something extraordinary!  Recently, Inspired by Stamping came out with a new set called Elegant Flowers.  I instantly knew I could use this special technique on the rose stamp in that set.  I call this technique the 3-D layered look simply because the image appears to pop off the page by layering several pieces of the same image.



Supplies needed to make flower:
Early Espresso ink pad
Pink houndstooth print paper (or designer paper/cardstock of choice)
Sponge dauber
Regal Rose ink pad
Dimensionals
Scissors
Glue pen & dazzling diamonds glitter (optional)

Instructions to make flower:
Step 1
Stamp rose with Early Espresso ink on houndstooth paper FOUR times.  Cut out the flowers as shown below.  On three of the flowers, some of the flower petals will be missing.  Sponge the edges of flower pieces with Regal Rose ink. 

Step 2
Starting with the full flower at the bottom, attach the next largest layer on top of full flower with dimensional, aligning image.  Attach second largest flower with dimensional and then smallest layer with dimensional.  To add more glitz, you can apply glitter to the shaded areas of the flower petals.


Card Supplies:
Echo Park Paper “Yours Truly” 6x6 paper pad
Basic Gray card stock
Basic Gray ink pad
Scallop Edge Border punch
Spellbinders Nestabilities Petite Circles die
Spellbinders Nestabilities Lacey Circles die
