Hello friends. I hope you've had a wonderful week. Only one more day till the weekend ... yeah! I have a couple of things to share with you today. I have a new card to share and I also have a tutorial ... yes, a real tutorial! Well, I never ever thought I'd be doing a tutorial.
I used Sugar Nellie's Simply Sassy Fabulous Darling on my card. Isn't she gorgeous? I colored her with copics and colored pencils. I used Glamour Dust on her hairbow, earrings, and shoes. Don't you just love those shoes? What I wouldn't have given to have had a pair of those shoes back in the day (no, I'm not saying how many years ago that would have been)! My butterflies are courtesy of Martha Stewart's punch and I added a little pearl to each one. I also used Martha's lace heart border punch. I stitched my papers and distressed them with Antique Linen ink. The lace is from my stash. The lovely yo-yo flower was made by me. OK, I know, pick yourself up off the floor!
So, what and where is my tutorial, you ask? Well my tutorial gives you instructions and pictures so you can make your own yo-yo flowers. That's the name of this type of flower ... or at least it's the name I've always heard used for these flowers. You can find my tutorial here. And you can find all the Sugar Nellie stamps at Funky Kits.
And here are some other yo-yo flowers I made. As you can see, you can make them any color and size that you like. And they're super easy to make so be sure to check out my tutorial.
