Day 28 of 31

Hello lovelies, today I have for you another Forever Night Challenge and a Bombshell stamps tutorial!

 Yep another twofer!!!

Let’s start with Forever Night, this week our sponsor is Stitchy Bear. Our challenge is an embellishment challenge. Your challenge is to use a flower somewhere on your project! Now for most this is not hard, but although I like flowers and have started making them recently I don’t often just put them on a card!!! BUTTTTT I managed to do it just for you! LOL JK

Isn’t she a bad ass!!! I love her hair and her chains!!!

Now head on over to the Forever Night Challenge blog to see what everyone else has made for you and also to see about getting in on this challenge!!!
Also remember to finish your 31 days hop!!!

Now for the Bombshell Tutorial!

As I hinted at yesterday today I am going to show you how to make the flowers I made for LB’s wreath. There are other tutorials out there but I found, once I started, that they were wasting to much paper to get the perfect flower. If you want that perfect flower then by all means, square off your paper and go from there. I personally think that if they look a little wonky then it looks a little more home/handmade instead of store bought! Just my personal opinion though!

OK:
Material needed:
Stamps of choice, I used the skeleton from the digital set skully doll!
ink/or image printed from the computer
copy paper
old books, or if you have trouble tearing up books, some sort of thin paper.
hot glue( lots and lots of hot glue!!! I went through a whole bag when making the wreath!)
scissors
lots of patience!!!

Now you didn’t think I was going to leave you with that did you???  No way not me!  How about a box filled with candy to put them on?  Now this box I made using my Martha Stewart score board, but that is a tutorial for another day!!!  Wanna see the finished project?

I'm so impressed with that tutorial, but don't want to forget to tell you how lovely your card is! The hair, the dress, the backgrounds! All wonderful! Now I want to go figure out how to make the flowers black or at least dark.

SUPREMELY AWESOME card!!! I love the colors, and yes she is an awesome image, great coloring! Great job using a flower or 2.

I like your spiral flowers, I don't start ming by gluing down the center first. I might havt to try it that way, might be easier! great gift box :)
