I'm addicted to the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies and making multicoloured roses!
Dena Rekow, a US demonstrator, came up with some amazing tips on using the outline and inside pieces to create beautiful flowers. I had to adapt her idea for keeping all the pieces together as we don't have the sticky product she used available in Canada. I ran the flowers through the Big Shot with a piece of dryer sheet folded to create four layers. That way the pieces stay in place (they stick to the dryer sheet) until you are ready to peel them off.
These are like little puzzles – so fun to make.
I used the new Timeless Textures stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue to create the background. I love the colour combination of Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette and Crumb Cake. I wanted to create a very subtle look.
Here's another card using Dena's stained glass look.
Hopefully you can see the glimmer on the petals. I used the Wink of Stella clear Glitter pen. It makes the petals "pop" and not just look flat on the paper.
Here's what it looks like when you run the thinlits through with the dryer sheet. SO easy to keep all the pieces together until you are ready to pop them in the frame.
See how addicted I am to making these gorgeous flowers?
Here's some of the products I used in my cards:
