There’s even a NEW coordinating Flower Medallion Punch to make a precise crop of the flower a snap.


The foundation of my design was this week’s Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge (PPA232).  PLAY ALONG!


  • To add a fluttery finish, I used my Paper Snips to cut a little deeper on each petal and manipulate the petals for “movement.”

  • Simple.  The center of the flower is also a stamp from Petal Potpourri.  It coordinates with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch.

  1. Hi Judy . . . I think we are all going to have to focus on those uber cool new products that will go the distance . . . hard to edit, however! M

  2. Gorgeous! Crisp and clean looking. The Celebrations catalog is evil and wrong and I need a sugar daddy to support me and my needs.

  3. Bright and cheery! I love how that bold flower “pops” right out!

    Love the bright, fun colors! I’m already tired of winter and gray skies and this certainly brightens the day.
