TSSC 302 - Floral Frames

BLOG CANDY:  Win Reason to Smile by interacting on my social media.  See details here.

And now, back to our regularly scheduled post...

Here is this week's Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge sample:

I used some of the items that are on the Weekly Deals list.  If you want any of these items at 25% off, act fast because this is the last day of the sale.  If you order online, please use hostess code:  HEANKVVG  Or, let me know by 8:00pm tonight if you want to take part in a group order.

Other items I used on this card:
Cardstock:  Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper (DSP): Epic Day
Big Shot for all those sale items
Here's a side view of the flower.  See the depth?
 And here's a close-up view from a different angle.  See the texture?
 Wonder how I got that depth and texture?  I used my Simply Scored Stylus (you can also get it with the Simply Scored Board) and Stampin' Pierce Mat
 First, use your Paper Snips to cut between the petals on the Daffodil Delight layers so they are separated, but still attached at the center.  Press down with your stylus along the middle of each petal and then work out to the edges. The petals will start to curl up a little.  You can vary how much the petals curl by how hard you press and how many times.  I also did the centers of each layer.  Make sure to poke in a random manner so you don't end up with straight lines.
Here is this week's TSSC sketch that I used for inspiration.  This card is portrait, but I changed mine to a landscape orientation.  I felt that worked better with my design.
You can see the rest of the design team samples at the TSSC website.  Then link your entry at the bottom of the TSSC post.

Thank you Meredith and Annette. I was kind of pleased myself with the flower. It's fun when you get those things that turn out better than you envisioned.
