Punch Art Flowers

I promised to show my fun with punch art flowers!  HERE THEY ARE!  well,so far:)

It started not long ago with punch art roses, like this one using one of Stampin' Up!'s Ornament Punch.
Rose Flower

This fueled my curiousity!  So last few days, I have been punching away like crazy!  
The amount of inspiration in punch art flowers is h u g e ! So many of lovely ideas! 


Here's my first one with the Full Heart can just do 4 to 5 larger hearts attached to a small circle center. 

But I decided to add a layer behind them, using half-hearts (pictured in blue), which I ran through my crimper. 


You do not have to stamp the heart but I have a co-ordinating heart stamp, so I did.

Now here is another,however, this is using our Heart to Heart Punch!

This punch has 3 sizes of hearts in the one punch - so I used all three, let me show you...

This is the 'tall, thin' heart - and you attach several behind a small circle center, then attach more in a layer behind and so on. Sparkle and embellish with smaller hearts - be creative! 

The bottom right is the same heart, but its been created with paper that is first through the Big Shot with our embossing folder to create the raised dots. 

Then over on the opposite side of my page, is the same punch - only this flower is using the 
"wider" heart of the 3!  It begins by tucking right side of the first heart behind the left half of the next heart, and so on - keep the hearts coming if you want a really full flower !  I added half-hearts as the final layer, to spread them out which gives it a more fringe look. 

Looks lovely with the texture - add ink highlighting to really show off those polka dots! 

The center of the top flower is made by adding a couple of layers of the small heart, and curling them upwards.  
Half Flower = And the bottom left is showing a flower not quite in bloom.
I used the 5 Petal Flower punch, and cut it in half and the stem is a circle punch to create a curved area on your paper, then move the punch upwards a little above that curve - punch again - and you will have a stem! 

Anyways - that's a short tour of the flowers I've created so far.  I am also working on a project that involves Punch Art Fairies - boy, so many great projects for the sunnier side of our year!!!
