This is one of the cards that we made at the Stamper’s Club Meeting on Friday night.  The stamp set is called 5th Ave. Floral and is one of four sets that Stampin’ Up! has on sale this month.

The flower is stamped three times on watercolor paper and then watercolored with an Aquapainter and Classic ink.  Then different sections of the flower are cut out and layered with dimensionals to give it a very 3-D look.  The base includes the whole flower, the second layer includes the center and four petals (the ones at 12,3,6, and 9 if you think of it as a clock face), the third layer is just the one petal in the front (at 6).

The idea behind this card and the bow were from Heather Summers a demonstrator in Canada that has various online classes – this was part of her current Simply Stamping class.  The bow she calls a cheater bow because you really just fold the ribbon and then tie the button around it to create the look of a bow.
