Fabulous Flowers Angel

Isn't she cute? I saw this angel on a display board at the Stampin' Up! convention last summer and I couldn't wait to make her! Isn't it fun that she's made from the Fabulous Flowers stamp set? She is stamped in Baja Breeze ink on Whisper White card stock. The pearl, crystal, and hat pin are from our Pretties Kit. The picture tutorial below will show you how to make her. All supplies used and shown are from Stampin' Up! Using the Fabulous Flowers stamp set, stamp two of the big flowers for the angel's gown and one small flower for her wings.
Completely cut out one image exactly the way it is. For the second image, eliminate the bottom row of petals. With the small flower, cut out three of the petals and then remove the middle one to resemble wings.
Cut directly to the center of both flowers and place Sticky Strip down one side of your cut.
Fold the flower over and adhere the Sticky Strip to the other side, creating a dome.
Using a 2-way glue pen, fill in the bottom row of petals with glue on the bigger flower and then sprinkle Dazzling Diamonds glitter over it. On the smaller flower layer, fill in all of the petals with 2-way glue and sprinkle Dazzling Diamonds glitter all over it. Paper-pierce a hole in the center of each flower and thread your hat pin through the two layers with a pearl from the Pretties Kit as the angel's head and a crystal bead as the angel's body. I stuck several mini glue dots underneath her gown to the hat pin to keep her gown from slipping down. I also used a mini glue dot to adhere her wings to the crystal bead! Pretty, pretty!
