prima canvas cut outs

There seems to be a trend in scrapbooking right now that is all about making your own flowers. Well Prima has come up with a very unique take on this trend with a sheet of canvas cutouts that are perfect for the 'do it yourselfer'.

The sheet is a stiff, natural coloured canvas with the outlines of several different flowers stamped on it.

The possibilities are truly endless in terms of what you can do with these flowers!

You can keep it natural with a little bit of ink on the edges

(I used one flower,cut apart and sprayed with mist, to create all the petals you see in the above pic)

I snipped the edges and used many coats of ink to get this bright yellow bloom

For this funky, striped flower I used double-sided tape as a mask.

I created this flower by spiral cutting a bloom then rolling it into itself. After spraying with glimmer mist, I attached all three layers with 3 in 1 glue.

For this one I layered brown and orange mists for a darker tone on the bottom layer.

This effect was done with a stamp and Staz On ink. Think of all the stamps you have and imagine them on canvas!

For even more texture how about embossing? I ran the flowers through the Cuttlebug then used chalk to make the pattern really stand out. I stuck the pin through the floss on the back of the button and used tacky glue to stick it all together.

You can use just about anything: ink, paint, mist,chalk, Copics etc to colour your flowers so they will be a perfect accent on your cards and layouts.

I made all of these flowers from one sheet which only costs $3.75!

Let your imagination wander, I would love to see what you come up with!

These are amazing. Who knew you could run it through a Cuttlebug and emboss canvas! I don't think these will last very long.
