Oh Hello Everyone!!
I have been having fun making roses with the Spellbinders Rose Creations set of dies. I am loving the results, so realistic and beautiful without a lot of work to shape them. I would never have thought it would be this easy to create them.
I just love the black and white DP that this is made with and the sprinkle of Stickles on the petals has made it so very special. Lots of petal curling and embossing to get the shape and I did have to play with quite a few petals before I got the desired result.
To make this card I took off the outside 2 petals of the rose, to make it smaller and it worked really well. It gave me plenty of room to put the ribbon and bow on, as well as the beautiful butterfly from the Fanciful Flight set. Of course I had to put a stick pin in there!!
Another rose for a special card to say hello. Made with DP from my scrap stash, a couple of borders, a diecut word, some ribbon, a bow and of course another pin!!! I am getting a bit predictable, and embellishments keep finding their way onto my cards.
This card has been entered into the Challenge Stripes and Polka Dots at Southern Girls Challenge Blog!
I must admit I am addicted to flowers, ribbon and stickpins. My Big Shot would be my abslute favourite tool and everyone knows I am a tool junkie.... technique junkie..... embellisher....
Oh well hope you get some time to create something special real soon. A couple of my friends have been bitten by the flower making bug and they are doing really well!!
