Cotton Paper Flower Pen

This flower pen was super easy with the new Cotton Paper from Stampin' Up! It's lighter then copy paper but heavier then tissue paper. It's very easy to work with.
Sorry, I did not take step by step instructions but it's so easy, you'll get it.
First I cut the Crushed Curry into a 1 1/4 x 12 strip & the Watermelon Wonder into a 2 x 12 strip. Then fold the strips in half and then half again (so, folded in 4ths). Then I cut into strips but stop 1/2 inch from the bottom (don't cut all the way through). I made angles cuts at the top to make them pointed. I did not cut the 2 strips at the same time.
Once both strips are cut then I put sticky strip or you could also use tear & tape, on the cap of a pen or end of the pen. First wrapped the yellow, tacking with tombo glue as I went. Then I wrapped the red right below the yellow, also tacking with glue along the way.  I just fluffed it out when it was all done.

That is the theme for the Stampin' Up Convention 2014. There were great classes, fun with my team member (we missed you Whitnie & Natalie!) and Stampin' Up family, awesome make and takes & many many swaps.

Our group, Got Ink? Girlz, were chosen to make a sample board for convention. We all worked hard to get these over the top projects done and are thrilled how it all can together. Come back often because I'll be posting details and instructions on some of these WOW totally awesome projects.

Convention swap:

You can't tell but this is a digital hybrid card. The base starting at the yellow thru the white card stock with the gray images is the digital part made with MDS software. I added a Coral piece of card stock behind as a card base & cut a white & yellow banner from the banner framelits stamped with the "Taped" stamp set. Then stamped using the "Six Sided Sampler" stamp set backed with Brushed Silver card stock punched with hexagon punch. I also added the yellow spatter with daffodil delight ink.
Many people ask how I printed the digital image. To tell you the truth, I wanted to use Stampin' Up!'s printing service since their quality is so good, but they were offline doing upgrades and didn't have time to wait. So...I used my cheap old HP, very basic printer and surprisingly the yellow color turned out very close to SU's!  Send me a message if you would like the digital image for this card.
