Here is a simple card using some new products and adding a little tissue flower for effect.

First you will stamp and assemble your card.  Here I used the new Painted Petals Stamp Set found in the Occasions Catalog on pg 19 using Pear Pizzazz and Wisteria Wonder Ink.  This set is SO pretty!  I used the Irresistibly Yours DSP that is a FREE item with your $50 order during Sale-a-bration.  I rubbed over the paper with a sponge, inked with Wisteria Wonder, until I got the coverage I wanted.  The white flowers are glossy and do not pick up the ink color. After the card was finished I made the little flower.  Here is how you do that:

You will need your ink (a few drops in your lid), Filter Paper (pg 193 of regular catalog), Aqua Painter, Small Brad, and 1 3/4" Scallop Punch.  Pick up your ink with the Aqua Painter and color a section of the Filter Paper until you have enough for what you want.  You will probably have to add more ink until you are done.  I dried the paper for a minute with the Heat Gun because I was too impatient to wait for it to dry on its own. I folded the paper so that I had 3 layers and then punched through with my punch.

Now put a brad through your punched scalloped circles, move around a little and "scrunch" with your fingers until you get the look you want.  Add your flower to the card with a few Mini Glue Dots. This took my more simple, but pretty card to the next level.  I should have showed you this last week when this Filter Paper was one of the Weekly Deal Items.  It is still a good deal, even when on regular price.
