Roses, Roses

After visiting Lee's beautiful blog 'A Wee bit of Craftyloops' I realised I am not getting the best from my Spellbinders - Donna Salazar - Rose Creations Die


............so this afternoon I have been having a little play



Lee is famous for her fabulous flowers but she directs us here to 'Such a Pretty Mess' for the tutorial.
They are quite easy to make and although they are not quite as good as Lee's and the ones on the tutorial blog......I am still quite pleased for my first attempt :)
They would probably be better with thinner material but I am a lover of linen card.
The two white ones have been made from sparkly vellum

We have this popular die back in stock at Pink Gem Designs......you can find it here
New stocks just in!

Hi Janet. Beautiful flowers, thanks for the tutorial link too. Apologies for not visiting recently, your cards were beautiful. Looks like you had a good holiday and hope your granddaughter is enjoying school. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Donna

Hey, thanks for the very cute freebie image of Gem! (I imagine that's where the inspiration came from ... it's very cute and looks like your doggy Gem)
