I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for the talent He has bestowed on all of us!
I have been artistic all of my life and love experimenting with different mediums and techniques. This blog is my creative outlet to share my passion for cardmaking and papercrafting!
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 :-) !
here is the "Mashup" Challenge :

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