FM33- Gratitude with Rosettes


Hi Stampers!

Boy, does time fly when you are having fun (or extremely busy)...  This is my third week already as a Guest Designer for the Friday Mashup and I am having so much fun seeing all of the gorgeous creations that have been submitted!

Holly has come up with a wonderful sketch and to “Mash it Up”, you can add  Rosettes.  I personally had never made a Rosette before but had seen many of them on cards, wreaths and other 3D projects, I could not wait to try :-) !
 
So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :

  1. Make a project using "Paper Rosettes".
  2. Or Make a project using "the Sketch Above".  
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Project with the Sketch using Rosettes".
* Here are some tutorials on Paper Rosettes if you aren't sure how to make one. 


*From a Border Punch , 
*From a strip of Pattern Paper   
PDF - instructions 

To create this card:

Use the Big Shot™ with the Snow Burst Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Very Vanilla, Early Espresso and Pool Party cardstock. 

Cut strips of Spice Cake Designer Series Paper into strips (remember that the final Rosette will be twice the width of the strip).  Using the stylus with the Simply Scored™ Tool, score every ¼” to create the score lines for the folds on the Rosettes.  Flatten the Rosette and use a Pop-Up Dot to hold the Rosette in place. 

For the smaller Rosette, adhere a flower punched with the Boho Blossom Punch from Early Espresso Cardstock, insert the Antique Brad and adhere to the card front. 

Ink the small floral stamp with Early Espresso ink and stamp off several times before stamping onto Very Vanilla cardstock.  Stamp the sentiment with Early Espresso and punch out with the Decorative Label Punch layering onto Early Espresso punched with the same punch.

Spray the entire card with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint spray to finish off the card. 

This card is definitely one that would have to be hand delivered due to the bulk but I do believe that I will have to make more Rosettes in the future!  I hope you like this card and try this technique yourself- how about this week and join us at the Friday Mash Up!

Double rosette? You over-achiever! Beautiful card!

I love the fan-like quality of your rosette, with the DSP changeing in the middle of your piece. Very cool. Your first rosette and your knock the ball out of the park!

Love your rosette, love all the texture, love it all. Wonderful card.

Julie, I really like the double layers on your rosette, it's not quite as full as some of the others, but looks fabulous just the way it is.

Great colour combo too.

Cheers,
