  29. Happy Easter! I like to use my punches and dies to make flowers. in real life I like all flowers that are yellow or white …. here’s a funny fact ……. when I had my son my husband sent me a big bouquet of white and yellow flowers and the nurse brought them in and said they must have forgotten to tint the flowers blue for boy. I said NO, my husband knows me well white and yellow flowers are my favorite.

  30. I LOVE the new paper flower trend and hope it is here to stay. My favorite technique right now is using punches/or dies, spray with water, scrunch, scrunch, dry with heat tool, then mist with a sparkly spritz like Smooch. Attach a pretty brad or glitter button to the middle, add a couple of crimped, scrunched, misted leaves and voila…I am a happy girl! I hope you are having a blessed Easter. Diane

  72. Hello happy day

    I enyoy to make flower with a puch, and I love paper with flowers desing, thanks
    A lot for this candy, my favorite flower is hydragea. Thank you, god bless.

  73. The best for me is using text weight paper, cut them with a die but, soften them with an embossing tool and then layer them. I have a few different flowers I make, so depends which die I use. Usually turn out pretty well. Had a good teacher. Edna

  74. My favorite flowers are hydrangea. I havent made any paper flowers yet. I tend to keep my cards flat and envelope ready. Thanks for the great give a way!

  75. I tend to make the ones that you wet and scrunch up. In the end they look like roses or buds. Honestly though I will buy then before I make them, less mess and time.

    Happy Easter to you and your family!

  76. I like to stamp flowers, then watercolour or pencil crayon them.

  77. Right now, I love the “Mixed Bunch” set from Stampin’ Up! and the coordinating punch to make flowers.

  78. I’d love to make my own flowers but I’m not very good at it. My favorite in real life would be either pansies or gladiolas. Thanks for the chance. Happy Easter!

  79. oh god this is a fun question to answer! I am always making my own flowers and I absolutely love making the layered ones, petal by petal.. both by fabric and paper. There are just SO many possibilities with the individual petals one, just change your embossing technique and you could end up with a totally different type of flower!

  80. Hi Beate! I love making flowers in every way possible. I am always trying new ways to make them. I have even begun to some quilling. What a great way to use up those skinny strips of paper left over. You are such an inspiration to all of us! Thanks for the offering the blog candy!

  81. My favorite way is to layer my flowers, I haven’t tried the rolled flowers yet. In real life I love roses and lilacs. Thank you for the chance to win some blog candy.

  82. HAPPY EASTER! Have a blessed day! Personally, I Iike to layer flowers. The rolled ones are beautiful, but I have not really been able to make them look like that, so I like to do the layered ones. My fav flower in real like is the rose, and especially the ones that are varigated in color! WOW!

  83. I like to make flowers from paper and not to big, because they have to fit in my scrapbook.
    And I like variation, so I do not have a favorite way.

  84. Happy Easter to you Beate!!! My favorite way to make flowers is to layer punches and then ink the edges. I prefer a lower profile flower for scrapping and more dimension for card making. Love rolled paper flowers for cards! Whatever I do, I always ink!

  88. I like to make flowers by punching or die cutting paper and layering them. Thanks for the chance to win.

  89. Happy Easter Beate,

    Amazing blog candy! As for what is my favorite flower ….. I have never met a flower I did not like but my favorite at the moment seem to be stacked flowers.

  135. Hope you had a blessed Easter with your family!
    The only way I’ve made flowers is to punch or die cut several of the same shape, mist with water, scrunch, and then layer. They always turn out cute, but I’m needing to branch out and attempt other ways. I’ve been wanting to attempt making flower with ribbon.
    Thank you so much for offering such fantastic blog candy! You’re sooooo generous!

  136. I love flowers! I don’t have any good dies so I mainly stamp and cut them out! Thanks for a chance to win, my favorite flower is the iris. Happy Easyer!

  137. Happy Easter Beate. I only make flowers for cards and that doesn’t happen that often. I layer punches because I haven’t mastered the rolled flowers yet.

  138. Happy Easter Beate!
    I love making flowers. Every couple of months or so I have a new favourite way of making them. Currently, I love using border punches and designer paper to create rolled flowers.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  139. Happy Easter!
    I love making flowers using both paper and ribbon. Depending on my mood, I would either roll flowers or layer them.

    thanks for the candy!

  140. My favorite flower style is layering them. This method creates endless possibilities.

  141. Happy Easter Beate!
    My favorite flowers in real life – roses and clematis. The postcards I do handmade flowers from of corded ribbon, paper roses and hydrangeas, flowers of cherry I also really like , and the roses in the technique of квиллинг. Embossed floral pattern, too, like on other people’s work, did not try to do… Very tasty candy! Register perhaps 🙂

  142. Ahh, flowers, my favorite, I love making my own, what I can do so far anyway, Still learning, and as far as my favorite live flowers, I love so many, but this time of the year, I have to say I love my Calla lilies, they are just so elegant looking to me. I have made a few of those in paper, but just not happy with the results yet, but i have not given up . I like using the punch bunch punches and making my own, and using other various dies, right now there is one flower from a Marianne die that I like using, I punch out the flowers, mist them with water, shape them around something circular (the petals), then heat dry them to get them to hold what shape I like, then color them with what ever venue I like, and use Brads or glue to hold them together, as each flower usually has at least 5-7 layers, and also vary my stamens to get different type looks, sometimes I also use PP, to vary my results, and also Vellum. I just keep experimenting. Making flowers is one of my favorite hobbies, roses, carnations, pansies,and I try to learn all types from many different sources of media, Blogs, You tube, there is a WEALTH of information out there, it is just supplies I usually run out of, and I try and use EVERYTHING, coffee filters, cupcake paper liners, books, always trying to think outside the box, and I don’t just used flower dies, something other dies work well too, some border dies make lovely flowers. .

    Thanks much Beate for the chance at this lovely candy, it would gladly help me in my flower making!!!

  143. Hi Beate! Hope u & family had wonderful Easter. Just visited your blog and saw that blog candy..WOW! I am in love with making flowers. I punch layers or die cut them. I sponge the edges and sometimes rubber stamp an image on the layers. After layering them, I love crumbling up the petals to give them an edgy type design. I add an interesting center like Tim Holtz’ hitch fastener and attach a swivel chain that hangs from the middle.
    Thanks for the chance to win some Easter candy. Maybe the Easter Bunny can visit me!

  144. I love flower stamps but can’t wait to try making some rolled felt flowers! Right now my favorite flowers are the tiny forget-me-nots blooming underneath the beautiful magnolia tree in my aunt’s yard. This will be the last year to enjoy them…I’m here to clear her house and ready it for sale.

    Thanks for the chance to win your awesome blog candy!

  145. I have only ever made flowers out of beads, or from stamped images. It’s time for me to learn to make paper flowers too! Back to the video tutorials I go… thanks, Beate!

  146. My favorite flower are the ones made from scallop circles cut from tissue paper and then bunched up.

  147. I’ve been loving these rolled roses from MFT’s and the new Donna Salazar by Spellbinders. Thanks for the chance to win blog candy

  148. I must admit I take the easy way of making flowers by using die cute. My favourite one is one of PTI nesting trio which is the one I grab lately even though I have others. 🙂

    Thanks for the chance to win that awesome blog candy and all those inspiring cards you keep on sharing

  149. I love to make the rolled flowers, and the dies that are available nowadays make it so much fun. Certainly more economical than buying ready made flowers. I’m starting to use felt and it’s pretty fun. I love flowers, and they always make me smile and instantly cheered. Have a lovely day, Beate! {hugs}

  150. Fab candy!!! I like the way rolled flowers look, but they are usually too tall for a card, so I prefer layered flowers instead. Thanks for the chance to win!

  151. Hi Beate,
    I like flowers on cards but I am rubbish at creating realistic ones – I usually use made ones or die cute some layer them up and try to give them some dimension. Rolled flowers always look lovely but would not survive the UK post bags!
    Thanks for the chance of winning.

  152. I like to die cut my flowers then add some color on the edges. My favorite flower is a violet, because of the color and the scent. I just love your cards, you inspire me to greater things everyday. Thanks again for sharing.

  153. My favorite way is to take already made paper flowers and sprigs or ink them. I also like to paint on them. My favorite real flower is the bluebonnet. Driving through the hills of Texas and seeing them in the pastures is gorgeous. You have a Happy Easter.

  154. Hi,
    I like to mix flowers..silk, mulberry paper and even the small fimo ones that I make myself. My favourite die at the moment,(and that is this very moment…the next moment it will be something else hee!), is the die namics prima donna petals.
    Thank you for giving us the chance to win your lovely prize.
    Happy Easter to all.

  155. I love flowers but since I have 2 black thumbs!LOL! I like to stamp and layer them with dimensionals so they look more real. I love all the flowers all the ladies put up on their blogs from their gardens. Happy Monday! ***** Vicki

  156. What a lovely gift! … I love to make any sort of flower .. fabric, rolled , punched … I love to try all different ways … have a lovely day

  157. wow, what great blog candy! I love making layered flowers, mostly die cutting and shaping with a stylus. i havent tried the rolled ones yet, too chicken. have a great week, hugs candy

  158. Liebe Beate
    Habe nicht alles gelesen und so kam auch nicht die rechte Antwort. Wir haben unzählige Rosen nach der Technik gemacht, die Du uns vorgestellt hast. Und wir lieben es am meisten Rosen mit Grungepaper zu fertigen. Meine Lieblingsblumen waren früher Tulpen, jetzt sind es Rosen. Frohe Ostertage wünsche ich von ganzem Herzen. Mit einer Umarmung und grosser Dankbarkeit. Sibylle x

  159. I love this blog candy Beate but I am never lucky
    I try !
    thank very much for this chance

  160. To be honest, I do not like getting too dimensional with my flowers because it turns into more trips to the PO for shipping. I like to Keep them at an extra layer that is popped. Rolled flowers, however gorgeous, work better on a 3D project for me. My favorite flower has changed over the last couple years, and is now the Orchid. I have started having great luck growing them! Thanks for the entry.

  161. Happy Easter Beate,
    As I mail most of my cards I usually use layered punched flowers or pre-made ones. When I don’t need to mail I like the rolled flowers and the scallop punch technique. Thanks for the chance to win.
    Regards from Western Australia, Michelle

  162. Wow, what great blog candy!!!! I like just about any way of making flowers, but I if I had to pick a favorite I would have to say punched flowers out of velum. With a little scoring down the petals and layering then adding a pearl they make such a pretty flower. Thanks for your generosity.

  163. Happy Easter to you too. I love flowers in every way…I make my flowers using stamping and layering, or with die cute. Thanks for sharing this flowery sweetness.

  164. Beate – Thank you for the “fat free” Easter candy. I love stamping flowers and using stickles on them and I also love punching and layering. My favorite all time flowers are Gerbera Daisies.

  165. Lately I’ve been crocheting flowers! 🙂 I like tulips and daisies!
    Thanks for this great giveaway!

  166. Happy Easter! The way I make most of my flowers is using papers with die cuts and layering. But I love the look of rolled flowers. Thanks for the chance to win.

  167. Oh, what a great giveaway!!! I LOVE flowers made any way, but especially with die cuts, and then shabby them up! I also love putting seeds in a pot and growing them and then giving them as gifts with a flower tag attached:) Thank you!

    Crafty Hugs!

  175. I have to say I tend to layer with paper more often than any other method of making flowers. In real life, I love tulips….they mirror my clean and simple style of cardmaking and there are many, many colors.

  176. My favorite is to use die cuts and layer the flowers with a gem or brad in the middle.

  177. Love to layer flowers. Some paper. Some netting or tulle. Painting dryer sheets. Whatever gets me the effect I am going for.

  178. Super duper candy Beate! I love creating shabby chic flowers by cutting them out, screwing them up, then rolling them – a great way to get rid of stress!

  179. I LOVE using the Spellbinders flower dies! The flowers are SO easy to make and always turn out beautiful!

  180. As a serious gardener I love all kinds of flowers, both natural and man made. I love to make flowers out of silk ribbon. It is amazing how real they can look some times. Thanks for an opportunity to win.

  182. Paper flowers from dies and/or punches would be my favourite way to create them, Beate…especially when you use a stylus to give them dimension and then layering them. Using felt and Spellbinder dies is another favourite of mine.

  192. My favorite flower of all time is the iris…but I haven’t figured out a way to make them very easily for a card. So I guess my favorite to make is to punch many layers of tissue paper (like red or pink) from the scallop circle punch, secure them together with a pretty brad, and them scrunch them up individually.

  193. I don’t use too many dimensional flowers due to postage, but when I do, I love to just use two sided paper and roll them. Thanks for a chance to win! Hugs…

  213. Hi Beate! What a sweet giveaway! I love to make my own flowers! I have made them mostly with the layered technique where I punch the flower shape, wet and scrunch them and then layer them together. I am new to this and they are not nearly as pretty as the tutorials but working on it. I have been dying to try some of the rolled flowers, but have not had a chance yet. I have saved every flower tutorial I can get my hands on so I can try them all 🙂 I don’t own any flower dies as of yet, but I am coveting the new spiral flower by SB! My favorite flower in real life, that is a tough one, but I think carnations are probably my favorite – they smell so good and they lost for a long time after being cut 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win this sweet candy!

  214. Happy Easter, Beate!

    My favorite way to do make flowers is to fussy cut or stamp and fussy cut flowers from patterned paper and layer them. I like to add dimension to the petals by burnishing them on a mouse pad with the end of a pen.

    Thanks for the chance to win such generous & beautiful blog candy.

  215. When I’m in a hurry – it’s always punched and layered flowers for me. But when I have time to play I love the look of rolled felt flowers.

  218. my favorite way of making flowers is the rosettes.

  223. I’ve been looking at a lot of flowers and “how-to” pages lately, but just haven’t actually made any paper flowers yet. My only flowers have been punch-outs, but I’m really liking the flowers I see crafters posting online. I’ll have to make some soon – they’re just beautiful! Happy Easter!

  224. LOVE your blog candy! My fav way to make flowers is with a die, and layering the shapes with ScorTape; you can almost smell them, they’re so pretty!

  225. Nice embossing folders! My favorite flower creation is stamping a flower design flat (with leaves) and then adding punched flowers or quilled flowers on top.

  226. Happy, Happy Easter! I am ‘known’ for using flowers on just about anything. I love all kinds and almost always layer them. Scrapbook pages, cards, home decor items, banners and posters~~If I’m the one who made them then they will almost certainly have flowers. lol

  241. Hi Beate,

    I use Big Shot dies or punches to make my multi-layer flowers. Hope my name gets picked for your wonderful prize.


  242. I use a lot of punched flowers on my cards because they mail easily. At Christmas time I couldn’t get the Pointsettia die I wanted so I used Silk ones on my cards, turned out beautiful! My very favorite flowers are lilacs which will soon bloom here in the north central USA.

  243. I use the “mothers day flower” cartridge for the cricut machine that cuts em out on paper, then i layer them to build em up, and use glue dots to attach them to my birthday cards! oh and of course i have to add a rhinestone brad to the middle of the flower as well…BLING BLING BLING!!

    Lisa 😀

  244. I always layer the flowers and my favorite flower is an iris!

  245. I love your blog and your tutorials. I looked at your review for Perfect Layers and loved it so much that I ordered them. As for flowers, my favorites can be found predominately in Japan but also along the banks of the rivers in DC and Philly — cherry blossoms. Next would come Tea roses, peonies, irises, lilacs — so many beautiful flowers, esp the ones you can cut and take in the house to enjoy. … and I find it hard to narrow down crafting flowers, as well.

  246. I love to figure out how to create new flowers from punches and have done classes to motivate others to see their punches in a new way, cutting and layering.

  247. I haven’t made any flowers. However I have a few Dies I haven’t used. My favorite real flower is a hyacinth. They are so fragrant. Thanks for the chance to win.

  251. Fabulous giveaway. Love tulips. Just new to crafting and love trying new things.

  253. I love to make flower with punchers and dies. I also use rubberstamps, it depends on the project I’m working on. Love this candy hope to win. Thanks

  254. I love flowers of all kind! I love paper flowers with printed papers, especially text. I like coloring plain paper flowers with Copics. I like dies and punches best–I’m not too good with scissors. As for nature’s flowers I love 2-tone roses, peonies, irises, tulips, geraniums and calla lillies–really I love almost every flower there is!

    Thank you for a chance to win! You are so gifted, Beate!

    this wonderful “candy”.

  258. Wowsers what an amazing candy – you really are spoiling us !
    I adore making my own flowers and there are so many ways to make them – I love to roll felt flowers and also to create shabby distressed/scrunched circles stacked up with brads or buttons. Oooo I am off to makeme some flowers – thanks for the mojo nudge 🙂 and, of course, the chance of winning such a fab candy x
    ((hugs)) Suzie xoxo

  259. Hi Beate,

    I’m not too good at coloring and shading so my favorite way to make flowers is by stamping an image several times and then cutting and layering. Sometimes, I use a piece of material that is printed with flowers and I cut and layer those. Thanks for giving us a chance to get these great items!

  260. Yummy! this looks fabulous!

  261. Beate, my favorite way to make flowers is by layering, but I wish I could color stamped images as well as you–I keep studying your work, watching your tutorials and PRACTICING! Thanks for sharing all the beautiful cards you make and the inspiration. What an awesome give-away!

  262. What beautiful papers! Thank you for . I like to make my flowers paper die cuts! Thanks for the chance to win such lovely floras

  263. I like creating flowers using various punches and layering the petals.

  264. I love making my flowers with dies from all different companies. There are so many unique dies out there that it is fun mixing them up, too. I could put flowers on everything and never be bored!! Thanks for the chance to win all those flower goodies. Yummy!!!

  265. Happy Easter one day late, Beate! I love making flowers from my layered dies. I use different papers,ink and stickles…and it is so much fun. I never met a flower I didn’t like. Thanks for the chance to win.

  266. My favorite flowers to make are tulips using the wings from the bird punch they are sooo easy and they look like you have spent hours…and tulips are one on my favorite flowers they are sure sign that winter is over and Spring has arrived

  267. My favourite way of making flowers depends on the day of the week, how ‘creative’ I’m feeling and what type of project I’m working on. If it’s something simple, I’ll use a straightforward flower punch or die and layer it up a few times to make something basic but still interesting. If it’s a more intricate project I will turn to some sort of notion (ribbon, lace, fabric, etc.) and my Glubers every time. No two flowers come out the same, just the way Mother Nature intended it.
    My favourite flower is all of them, especially after a long hard winter!
    Happy Easter to everyone!

  268. I’m not sure what my favorite method would be. I think the one that I do most often is to layer silk or paper flowers onto each other, use a brad or bling in the center, but I do love making rolled flowers from a circle cut into a spiral.

I would love to win! Thanks for the opportunity!

  308. Oh my, I love all flowers but orchids are my favorite. I also like several methods for making them. I stamp, layer, roll and die cut. At one time I even tried molding them. Flowers are like God’s grace, always beautiful and uplifting and you can never get enough.

  309. I love to use my dies to create flowers. Thanks for sharing your fantastic cards. Your work is fantastic.

  310. I like to punch and layer flowers.


  311. Right now I am so into making flowers using my Cricut and SCAL2, lots of fun and different styles, layering them and adding pop dots in between works really well too! 🙂 I have also made a few fabric flowers (make sure the fabric has rayon or polyester in it), cutting out scalloped circles, many sizes, holding to a candle flame to melt the edges, they curl like rose petals when done properly as the rayon or polyester melts–be careful!!!, layer them, stitch the centers together, add a center button and a pin back and whala a beautiful little broach to dress up a sweater or jacket. Cute!

  312. I am probably too late to enter this gve away but I wanted to say thankyou for all the inspiration… I love your work and your tutorials are fantastic.

  313. Hi Beate, what a wonderful prize to win, wow! If I am to use flowers on my cards I usually purchase them already made, but I have cut some from my cricut and then ran them through my cuddle bug to emboss them to give them definition. My favorite flow in real life is the Gerber Daisy (in pink of course)!

  314. I know I’m late to comment but I just wanted to say that I love using WOC Flowers on my projects, I also like to make paper ones from the tattered flower die, & last but not least my FAVORITE FLOWER is a Tulip. Thank you for letting me share that Beate. Hugs Traci ;0)

  318. Happy After Easter, Beate! I like to make my flowers by either punching and layering them or using the rolled flower technique. I don’t use a die for the rolled ones, just cut a spiral into a circle and roll them up. Thanks for the chance to win such great prizes!
