Splitcoaststampers Ways To Use It challenge this week was to use vellum on our project.  I decided to try my hand at making a floral spray with vellum flowers.  I made the flowers using the Martha Stewart Cornflower and Hydrangea punches. I thought I would show a couple pictures to show how I put these together. I used pink paper for the photos so the flower would show up better than the vellum on my project.

Punch out several embossed cornflowers. Using deckle or postage scissors cut the petals of one flower to shorten for an inner layer of the flower. Cut the petals of another flower almost totally off so there is just a hint of petals around the circle. Punch out three or four little hydrangea petals and one tiny flower. Round and form the flower sections using a stylus (see punched flower tutorial) and mouse pad or piercing mat.

Cornflower 1 
Attach the first three large cornflowers offsetting each layer a little so the petals are not perfectly lined up.  Add the first cut down flower and then the small circular flower and finish layering with the tiny flowers.

Here is the project I made for the vellum challenge. I love how it turned out.  The white embossed vellum really looks puffy with all the layers. Check out my multi loop bow  tutorial if you would like to know how I made my bow.
