Tissue Paper Flowers

I recently discovered Abby's blog - Little Birdie Blessings - and was blessed to make a new friend! We recently did an exchange - I sent her an "embellishment pack" and she sent me some cards she'd made.  The above card was one I made up to give to her.
Supplies used:
  • Wallpaper 
    • for the background
  • Tissue Paper 
    • flower
  • Beads
  • Vintage Lace
    • along side and behind flower
  • Threading Water Border Punch (Fiskars)
  • Julep Floral Stamp (Hampton Art)
  • Colored Pencils
Here's a few of the things I included  in my gift to her
Six Tissue Paper Flowers - You make these the same way as the Nestabilities Flowers - except I had about 8 layers of tissue for each size that I cut.  BTW - the pink ones started out white, I colored them with my homemade glimmer mist! The brown flowers had buttons in the center, the pink had pearls, and the white ones had micro beads.
A pack of die cut (and embossed) butterflies!
Some rolled roses in various colors. (Tutorial here)
There were quite a few other items in the pack, but I wanted to show you some of the pretty cards I got in exchange! They were just what I was wanting to give another friend as a gift, and they came just in time!
Thank you Abby for the great exchange!

I have to say that it sure felt like more than an "embellishment pack". I thought I'd won the lottery when your package arrived. I was thrilled with everything. I'm glad you shared some tutorial links here. Thanks for this sweet post my friend. You're a gem. I've already used a bunch of my treasures. ~ Abby

What an amazing gift package. I have been scrolling through your blog and have come to the conclusion that you are tremendously talented. Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world earlier...I'm so glad you did.
