McGill Punches + Doodlebugs' Whimsy

Happy Monday, friends!  
I have a couple of cute projects that combine these two companies:

First up is a card  using Doodlebug Design's "Hello Spring" Collection 
 and Cardstock with McGill's punches.  Before layering the scalloped and circle pieces, 
I chalked around the edges of each with a coordinating color. 

After punching the smaller flower shapes, I placed each onto the Molding Mat and created a well
in the center by using the medium stylus tool.  This allows the petals to roll in and add a 3-D effect.
 After chalking the edges, I added them to the edges of the larger flowers with a flat Glue Dot.
The centers were adorned with Doodlebug Design's adhesive pearls.

Although the 4th of July has come and gone for 2013,
I like to keep my patriotic decorations out until Labor Day.
I designed this whimsical vase of paper flowers with Doodlebug's "Stars & Stripes" Collection
and a couple of the different McGill Paper Blossoms Punches
  For the 'blue star' flowers, I layered two of the same blooms and staggered the petals
just a little.  Use the molding mat and a stylus tool to achieve a nice rolled effect to the flowers.
 For the 'striped' flowers, I layered the flowers so that the two blooms were back to back
and a mirror image.  To these, I gently molded the center of the flowers only.

After punching a small red Petite flower, I added them to the center of each blossom with
a foam dot.  The flowers were then glued to bamboo skewers that I had wrapped with
Doodlebugs' Washi tape!
