more paper roses

I'm still playing with these flower sets from Heartfelt Creations... here are more paper roses made with the Blossoms Nestabilities and coordinating stamps. For these I used the second smallest flower.

Instead of stamping each flower and die-cutting out one at a time, I folded a piece of mulberry paper so one pass through the diecutter would cut out six flowers at once. After they were cut, I then laid each piece over the inked stamp to ink the edges. I used Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid on these (well, 2 of them - the one in the middle was left plain). For dimension I followed Tim Holtz's paper rose tutorial again. Each flower uses 4 diecuts. The leaves were stamped with waterbased dye ink and blended with a waterbrush.

This sentiment is actually all on one line, but I cut mine in half...bad habit, I know...but it makes it more versatile for cards like this, or if I just want to say "God Bless You" or "on Your Birthday". You know...I have my reasons!

Here's a close-up on those roses... they are so fun to make!

Enjoy your weekend............

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Beautiful! Mulberry paper...hmmm gotta try that! Love the look of these!

  2. This is a really, truly WOW card! The roses are wonderful! I know what you mean about the sentiments - I have cut some of mine apart too. The rest & ink up & cover the parts I don't want with tape.

  3. This is gorgeous Dini! You're an expert at making those roses. Like the soft, shimmery look to this- it really catches the light:)
