Hello and thanks for stopping by today! I tend to feature quite a but of fussy cutting in my projects. It’s not a bother for me to fussy cut flower or basket or even a large die cut, as long as it fits into my vision of the project. When working on a larger project with the Detailed Floral Thinlits die, I thought how nice it would be to just have a few of the selected flowers as individuals. It is within my skills to fussy cut, so why not make the flowers I need?

Fussy Cut Flower
My eyesight is not what it used to be but I can still cut around an image. Not every stamp comes with a die to cut it from the paper and then there are some large dies that just one tiny bit will fit in my project. So is the case in this project. When looking at the Detailed Floral Thinlits die cuts, there is a tremendous amount of images. It cuts out more like a panel with a look of lace and is very beautiful. Isolating just a few of the flowers, I can feature them as part of a larger arrangement of florals and they really stand out. Worth every moment of scissor time in my opinion.
Heartfelt Blooms stamp set
Along the same lines as the large die cut of Detailed Floral Thinlits, Heartfelt Blooms is a very large stamp of an entire arrangement of flowers. But I want to feature just the small flowers for this project, so…. back to the scissors! I stamped and cut away just the small flowers I was looking for and they did end up being exactly what I needed in this design.
Taking a good look at some of the products in out supply with fresh perspective is a great way for gain new inspiration and ideas for more projects. Tiny pom-pom styled flowers can work themselves into many projects, as well as a fussy cut flower.
Here is a list of supplies I used to make this card project. Links are here that you can click to get product info and purchase items, at no additional cost to you, as well. Thank you for your support with your purchase.
Having more ways to create a focal point on your project can make a project work for you. I hope you like this project and will come back to visit often! Thanks for stopping by today.
