Here is my first attempt using the Build A Blossom stamp set with it's matching Blossom Petals Punch. I thought it would be easier than it turned out, but I think with a little practice, I will get better!
First tip: Turn your punch over and look at the shapes it cuts out. Stamp your petal/leaf images onto the paper accordingly, so you will have minimal waste of paper.
Second tip: Curl your petals so they are not flat. This gives a 3-D look to them. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the top layer of petals.
I think next time I will use an ODD number of petals. This would give a more natural look to my flower. Stay tuned--I will be sharing my progress with you to encourage you to try this wonderful stamp set/punch duo!
