BUILD A BLOSSOM - LORD BALTIMORE HIBISCUS

I must say that I am having a blast with the Stampin' Up! Build a Petal punch.  Here is another "Blossom" card that I created with the punch.  The inspiration for the Blossom is my Lord Baltimore Hibiscus that has 8" wide blossoms.  It is a beautiful Hibiscus plant (see picture below). 

The petals of the blossom were made  from Rich Razzleberry card stock.  The Rich Razzleberry Marker was used for the center of the blossom and the veins on each petal.  The staminal column was created with two small strips of Rich Razzleberry card stock.  The stamens were created by punching extra-small circles from So Saffron card stock and adhering them to the column.  The finished blossom was spritzed with Vanilla ShimmerThe leaves and part of the bloom were created with Always Artichoke card stock and marker. 

Other products
used were the Rich Razzelberry paper from the Brights Designer Series Paper Pattern Stack, Sunny Garden Designer Series Paper, and the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impression Emboss Folder.

That is absolutely stunning. I love the versatility of the stamp and coordinating punch. You can make any species of flower you wish. The likeness to your model plant is striking.
