A New Photo Tutorial

Several months ago, I was contacted by Splitcoaststampers' Beate Johns who asked if I'd be interested in writing a tutorial for Splitcoaststampers. I was sooooooooooooooo honored and immediately said yes! She requested that I put together a photo tutorial on making dryer sheet flowers, and I'm so pleased to say that my tutorial went live over at Splitcoast yesterday. So far the response has been wonderful!

Today I wanted to share the card I made as part of my new tutorial. The flower on this card is the one I show being assembled in the tutorial.


You can find all of the details on how I made this flower in my Splitcoast tutorial, and all the card specifics are listed below.  I had so much fun using my DeNami Design stamps to make the perfect card for showcasing this dryer sheet flower!

Thanks so much for dropping by and sharing my little slice of bliss for today!
