What do these three cards have in common? Two things:
First, they feature flowers made of scraps from magazine pages, stacked and held together by a brad and "scrunched" to form the petals.
Second, the process for all three was demonstrated by Connie Stewart, one of my favorites on YouTube. She is a cheerful, inspiring card maker, and I go to her site often for ideas.
Two other YouTube stampers I've learned a lot from are Tina Smith of "Cards and Coffee Time" and Jennifer McGuire. Tina lives on a farm, and you sometimes hear a rooster crowing in the background. She also has a cat who loves to walk across the table while Tina is creating. Jennifer is a well-known blogger with very clear videos on the latest techniques. Check them out when you get a chance!
Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy these cards!

Pink is not my favorite color, as you know; but for these beautiful designs I'll make an exception. The dsp is from the Bella Carta "Spring Market" again. (See previous post.)
Included in the dsp pad was a page of various tags which fit in quite nicely. The butterfly was fussy cut from a SU sheet of 12x12 dsp obtained as a freebie for my Sale-a-bration order.
I ordered ONE PAD of the Bella Carta dsp on Amazon. They mistakenly sent ONE PACKAGE of six pads instead. When I contacted them to report the error, they said to just keep them all! I had fun giving them away to some of my stamping buddies, keeping one extra for myself. If I ever figure out how to make that happen again, I'll let you know (lol.)
BTW, my inspiration for using this pad as a kit was YouTube videos by Tina Smith of Cards and Coffee Time. Thanks, Tina!
