Occasions Big Shot Club

We celebrated Birthdays this month at our Big shot Club Meeting! I went outside my comfort zone and tried a color combo from a swap I received at Leadership and my customers loved the BRIGHTS! Concord Crush, Real Red and White..This is a box made with the Petal Cone die and the Fun Flowers die cut in the OCM.
The flowers were cut and and sprayed with water let set and then peeled them apart and sponged the flowers to give them a 3 dimensional look.
I first saw this box without the the top petal on it on Chick & Scratch's blog Angie did a great video. I have seen several versions since. this one I just tweaked to my own specs.

Technique for Flowers

Sponging TIPS**

In a Stampin’ Sponge piece on an ink pad by pressing and twisting into the ink

Begin on scratch paper to the side of your flowers and wipe the sponge from the scratch paper, across the edge of the card stock and on the card stock.

This ensures that the ink will be darkest at the edge and prevents unexpected dark spots.

Cut your Stamping Sponges into 8-10 wedges, rather than using the full circle sponge for a single color

You can use the round tab punch and staple a piece of that color paper to the top of the sponge to show what color it has been used for.
