Poofy Flower



Yesterday's Featured Stamper on SCS was Barb Anders (whoo-hoo, love her!) and this is the gorgeous card of hers that I chose to CASE. I loved the big poofy flower and have been dying to make one of these, the polka dots, and the use of kraft. I switched out the green for red, did some background stamping on the large kraft panel, used different stamps, and added sewing.

You can see Dawn McVey's video tutorial HERE on how to make the poofy flowers. Fun!

Have a great day, everyone...and CONGRATS to Barb!
