Emily Keaton wrote today’s tutorial for Splitcoaststampers. She shows us how to create flower embellishments out of used dryer sheets.  I cut my flower pieces with the Blossoms Nestabilities die. The pieces were sprayed with Tattered Angel Marigold Glimmer Mist and held together with a Glitter Brad. The edges of each petal was lined with Lime Green Stickles.

The sentiment from Unity’s Itty Bitty Wonderful set was stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die. The edges of the circle were  sponged with New Sprout Memento Ink..

Pieces of Echo Park Hello Summer patterned paper were cut and embossed with two Foliage dies. The embossed part of the leaves were sponged with Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink and adhered to the flower. The flower was adhered to the lower part of the circle with dimensional foam.

The circle was adhered to a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Lace Doily Motif die. A piece of Echo Park Sweet Day paper was cut and embossed with a Grand Square Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded and stitched before the paper was adhered to the card base, white cardstock cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die. Part of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl finish off the card.

  9. Gorgeous flower, love the addition of the stickles to the edges of it. Definitely need to give this one a try!

  10. What a unique idea. The cost is certainly right. Another idea; how about using interfacing. I have lots of interfacing left over from my sewing days.

  11. Gorgeous card, fab flower – thank you for sharing the technique.

  15. Brilliant idea! Thanks Beate – love that yellow mist, too!

  16. Oh wow! What a neat idea!!! This is beautiful!

  17. What a “GREEN” great idea. Love those flowers and the touch of stickles on the edges.

    Ter ;)

  18. Love, Love, Love the flower!! It looks so Gorgeous and it lights up the entire card. Awesome, Beate!!

    Just a little info on the side, we don’t have dryer sheets in Malaysia to recycle ;) Maybe the weather is just too hot that dyers are not commonly used.

  19. Such a pretty way to recycle! TFS

  20. this is so fun! I’ll have to save the dryer sheets next time and give it a go! thanks so much for the video, Beate. love love your beautiful card!

  21. I did this technique a few years ago but back then I didn’t have dies so I layered the pieces together, colored them with watered down acrylic paint and then stitched them together, I made a bee and bee hive. Like the idea of adding the stickles it really makes the layers stand out, great sentiment, lovely card!

  22. Pretty card! The flower is lovely! I like how you embellished the flower with stickles.

  23. Adding the stickles to the edge was the PERFECT finishing touch!! It really made the different layers POP! (off to gather dryer sheets now!!)
