Susan’s Garden Notes Rose

Good Monday morning.  I have another flower project to share with you today made using Susan’s Garden Notes Rose 2 and Garden Patch 1 1/2 inch @ Mini Roses.  I stepped a little out of my wheelhouse and used some of the Mylar Sheetz from Elizabeth Craft Shimmer Sheetz Iris Sampler Pack..  I’ve never used this product before and wasn’t exactly sure of what to do with it.  I read there are multiple uses for the Mylar sheets but I finally decided to use it behind my framed rose.  I think the framed background looks like a church window.

If Susan happens across my blog post I hope she doesn’t take too close a look at my rose.  I wasn’t quite sure I was assembling it together correctly but I just kept adding petals until I was happy.  I lightly formed all the petals with my stylus and molding pad and then applied Spun Sugar ink to each petal with a mini applicator before attaching the petals to the stem base. I applied Shabby Shutters and Squeezed Lemonade to the stems and leaves.

I applied rolled double stick tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the Mylar sheet.  I then applied mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the card base.  Both the frame and card base were made using glossy cardstock.  The rose was attached with pieces of mounting tape.  I added the small multi loop bow for the finishing touch.

I usually have a center shot of my project but I couldn’t get one because my hands and camera kept reflecting off the Mylar.  LOL! 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week.

  1. Kittie, this is just stunning!!!!! I absolutely love this card and of course, your rose…. I’m gonna make plane reservations tomorrow so I can come and get some personal lessons… LOL. I love the colors you’ve chosen for this gorgeous card. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful creativity
    PS: just kidding about flying down there….

  2. I think your rose is perfect. I’m going to make this card but with a water color background instead of the shimmer sheetz,

  3. Good morning,Kittie. this was a surprise background, I have never used it before either. I thought you had either water colored or distressed. I looks good especially with that wonderful beautiful rose to set it off. I am always inspired with your creations….have a good day….Hugs

  4. Kitty,
    Card came out gorgeous, I too think it looks like a church window, that is a nice pretty paper, so shimmery, but not always easy to work with, I have a few sheets here, waiting to come up with a good idea for it.
    Now receiving my emails from you with no problems.
