Both of these cards use the new Veranda B&T papers, and both are loosely based on patterns from the Originals CTMH cardmaking book.
This one uses the retired Lovely Daisy stamp set. The flowers and leaves were colored with a blending pen.
This flower is from the new So Sweet stamp set. The blue flowers were paper pieced.

I've seen these paper flowers around on blogs for awhile and finally tried making a few:
Start with a scallop circle punch--any size--and punch out five shapes.
Then pierce or punch a whole through your stack of shapes.
Insert a brad to hold the five shapes together. I used a tiny brad when I planned to cover it with a button and a large brad when the brad itself became the flower center.
Crumple separately every layer but the bottom one. The more "crumply" the better.
Unfold, add any center you want, and it's done.
To make the flowers look a little more shabby and add some depth, I ink distressed the papers both before and after crumpling. I used both newspaper and B&T papers. Very Easy! I made all three flowers in about fifteen minutes.

The plaid paper is from the Back Country paper pack, and I used the stamp sets Beautiful Things (cat tails) and Piece of Cake (sentiment). The design is based, very loosely, on the card on page 57 of the CTMH Spring 2010 Idea Book.
