YouTube Flower Tutorials


I've been watching flower making tutorials on YouTube and thought I'd try my hand at these jewelled flowers. I'm really quite pleased with how they turned out although they were quite time consuming what with all the stamping and embossing. I mostly blinged up some buttons for my "jewels". The flowers are kind of oversized and I think are great for making a statement with a very simple card like mine. With regard to the card does it look OK as it is or should I have carried the gems down to the bottom?

If you have a go at the flowers let me know so I can come have a look. Have a great weekend.


Would also like to say thanks to all the people who've given me awards lately, will hopefully get round to responding soon.

Your flowers are gorgeous- I love the colours you've made them in!! :) And I love the card, too- is the diamond pattern an embossing folder?
I have a long list of flower tuts I want to try as soon a I have the spare time and energy- inclding one you posted a while back that used a paper crimper :)- but these may push themselves in at the top of the list!! Thanks for sharing another great idea!! :)
