Blossoming Rose

I'm back!   Well I think I am . . .    I have had either a horrible cold or allergies and my head could not think creatively so I have missed a few days posting.  Today I created a card with the beautiful LaBlanche "Blossoming Rose" stamp that will be released next month. The image was stamped, colored with Copic markers and cut out so I could make each flower dimensional.  I did not stamp a second image and cut out additional flowers, but just cut between the flowers being careful not to detach the arrangement.  I used tools from the Flower Tool Kit to give each flower some dimension.  Yellow Stickles was added to the center of each flower.

I'm not sure, but I don't think I have used this pretty "French Pastry" Doily Die  by Cherry Lynn Designs.  Joan's Gardens has a large variety of these beautiful doily dies in stock.  The stamped LaBlanche Roses were attached over the doily with dimensional tape under each of the flowers.   A double punched border, created with the Martha Stewart "Deco Shells" border punch, was placed on the bottom of the card.

For the embellishment on this card I decided to create a "Blossoming Rose".  It was created with two of the largest petals from the "Super Giant Begonia Petals" punch.  There are two rows of each size in this flower.  The "Medium Sparkle" punch was used to create the stamens.  There are three stacked together.  Each leg of the sparkle was cut down the center to give it more "frill"  Once all the stamens were glued together, I used a liquid glue to add a dab of glue to most of the stamens then dipped it in yellow "Flower Soft".  It gives the stamen that "fuzzy" look you see in  many roses like this and matches the center of the LaBlanche flowers. The two leaves are from the Heartfelt Creations "Distressed Leaves" stamp set and cut out with matching dies.  A pretty double bow and a few pearls were added to complete the card.  The colors do not show up as they do on the real card. (We are having a cloudy day with rain.  The colors really do look much closer in color than shows in this photo.)

I want to remind you this is the last week for the card and tag challenge at Joan's Gardens.  One lucky person will receive one of the beautiful Marianne embossing folders ($30 value).  Be sure to check out all the details at Joan's Gardens.

As you know, all products used to create this card can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.
