Well, I haven't posted for a while, so thought I'd just add my cards that have been waiting to get posted for ohhhhh sooooo long!  My latest thing in stamping is making handmade flowers with crepe paper.  In the next few posts you will see my creations of crepe paper flowers.  I really like the way they turn out.  They look so feminine and delicate.  The only problem with them is if you put them in an envelope for mailing, they will go flat.  So I usually save these and just put them into a gift bag along with a gift and forget the envelope.  As you will see, I've made different shapes for the petals.  The way I make the flowers is to simply draw out a single petal shape, cut several of the shapes out of crepe paper and layer them - two layers of five each on the bottom, then a layer of four, and then a layer of three.  Of course you can layer them however you think looks nice.  Try them; they're a lot of fun!
