A Little "Bitty" More Flowers...Please

Good Morning! 
Welcome back to a little "Bitty" More flowers...I have to tell you I really LOVE these Bitty Blossoms soooo much! Today I'm going to share how you can add color to your Bitty Blossoms centers with NO chalk, inks or pencils/markers. However, I first want to share my layout using lots of Bitty Blossoms and one Big Rose Creations flower. Plus lots of Donna Salazar products. I'm still on this Shabby Chic design mode, which is why I used lots of whites and pinks for this layout today. This is an old photo of my daughter Erica, it is one of my favorites of her because she looks so peaceful and happy.

Check out all the Bitty Blossoms flowers here. Can you believe they are all from the same spellbinders diecut set? Looks like lots of work....but it really is fast and easy and you can make them all to match your project perfectly! The amazing birdcage is so big and beautiful! I embossed it with Jasmine Mix'd Media Inx and Jasmine Embossing Powder. It is truly my favorite white products...I also did the same to the bird and added fairy dust glitter on top to shine.

Here is a view using the Rose Creations flowers. I added some smooch spritz and embossed with Jasmine ink and embossing powder on the edges. In the background is music paper, it is a stamp called Stanza by Donna...I used more Jasmine ink and even on light grey paper it really pops. All the light brown painted chipboard and cardboard is called Honey Mixd Media Inx. I like the softness of the color to give it more of a shabby chic feel. The pink faux stitched frame behind the photo is  part of the Spellbinders Mix'd Media Elements...it is great for those of us who don't own a sewing machine and love the look. :)

I used grey cardstock, Chiffon ink and Fairy Dust Glitter for the Shadow Flowers. The banner was also inked and embossed with Jasmine ink and embossing powder. The birdcage in white is plain white cardstock and I added a pearl on the top.

Here you can see the 3D look of the chipboard, cardboard and beautiful flowers.

Ok, So here is how you make those Bitty Blossom Flowers.
First, cut in light pink the smallest diecut and in white cardstock the largest diecut.

Roll, the pink flower and then add glue to the beginning of the white flower, hold for a few seconds. Then, roll white flower around center and glue to the bottom.

Finished yet? lol
Should take a couple of minutes and just fluff out the white petals. 
Easy enough and so beautiful.

Hope you try these flowers...you sure will be glad that you did...they remind me of those fancy flowers that you pay a pretty penny to have and yet for pennies use can have dozens using Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms diecut by Donna Salazar! Thanks sweetie! Hugs! 
Have a great day!
