Clematis Flower Tutorial by Carla Marchee

We're back to bring you even more Limited Edition kit inspiration with a flower tutorial from My Creative Scrapbook design team member Carla Marchee.

Here's Carla:

It has been awhile since you have seen one of my flower tutorials.

Today I will show how to make the Clematis flower that I created for this page featuring the Limited Edition kit.

Some close up pictures:

See the next pictures please for the steps to make this flower.

Step 1: First I punched out six petals, inked the edges, and lightly inked the middles with an ink pad.

Step 2

Step 3: I used a sun punch to make stamens for the flower centers. I also inked two of the suns.

Step 4: I used a large embossing stylus tool to soften and shape the petals.

Step 5: So it looks dimensional like a petal.

Step 6: I also used the tool to press down in the middle of the punched suns so that they look like stamens.

Step 7: To assemble the flower, I first used the large white flower for the base.
Now start stacking
See picture please :)

Step 8

Step 9

Step 10: After you have all your stamens ready, press in the center with the stylus.

Step 11: Here is my completed Clematis flower.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
