Good Sunday morning! I have some blog candy to share with you. Have you tried the new Spellbinders M-Bossabilities? They are wonderful. I have an extra Garden Delight M-Bossabilities folder to share with one lucky winner.
All you have to do to qualify to win is leave me a comment on this post by noon on Tuesday, May 29th telling me what your favorite floral punch, die cut or stamped image is. I would be hard pressed to give an overall favorite but for today it’s rolled roses.
I can’t seem to stop using the Belleek Inspired Technique as it creates such a perfect background for my floral projects. Today I tried my hand at creating roses with the Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms set. I brayered the embossing folder with Spun Sugar Distress Ink, inserted the white cardstock in the folder and ran through my Big Shot. What an easy task this is to accomplish the gorgeous background you see on my project.
I die cut the Floral Oval and then die cut again with a Classic oval die, I applied mounting tape on the back of the frame and attached to the card base. I die cut one large Bitty Blossoms flower and two small ones to create my floral spray. I lightly sponged ink on the edges of the flowers with Spun Sugar Distress Ink before I rolled them around the nose of my pliers. When the flowers were secure in place I used the pliers to turn back the petals of the flowers and then lightly sponged on Adirondack Shell Pink to add a darker pink edge to the petals. I die cut several pieces of foliage using light green cardstock, distressed using a stylus and mat and sponged on Shabby Shutters Distress Ink.
I arranged my foliage and attached to the card base and frame using Glossy Accents. I attached the three roses and then arranged a few sprigs of the branch punch around the roses to soften. I think these rolled roses are gorgeous and look so life like.
Thanks for stopping in today. Don’t forget to leave a comment about your favorite flower accessories for a chance to win the M-Bossabilities Garden Delight folder. You have until noon on Tuesday, May 29th to leave your comment. The winner will be selected by Random.org and I will announce the winner on my blog post Wednesday.
