Happy 4th of July! Hope you have a wonderful and safe celebration! This is Karen Burniston’s Star Accordion Album decorated with some really cute peel-off stickers called Star Buddies from Elizabeth Craft Designs. The paper is Stampin Up’s retired Lullaby. To do the baby animal images, I put the stickers on adhesive sheets, poured glitter over them and colored on the glitter with Copic markers. Els has a great video on this technique here.
I used the Baby We’ve Grown set to finish off this card. And here it is open – with all the animals! Cute! Hugs, Fran
This little Circle Accordion album (Karen Burniston) uses Baby We’ve Grown on the front with a little rose and some punched leaves. The pacifier in the corner is from my stash – no idea where it’s from! I do love the bunny in this set!
Open it shows the shaker piece in the middle and a sentiment from Something to Say. To make the shaker, I die cut a circle from the center of the accordion piece. Then I die cut 2 circle from acetate and sewed around them, leaving a small opening at the top which I filled with punched stars and hearts. I added some pink micro beads and glued the opening shut with glue dots. Attaching it to the opening with glue dots, I made a separate ring to finish off the back.

I fully intended to use the Ring Accordion Album to make this card, but grabbed the other and half way through before I realized what I had done! Silly me! But I’m happy with how it turned out. Hugs, Fran
Let’s start with the card! This card features the Spiral Rose die and the set Baby, We’ve Grown in the mini catalog. I used 2 embossing folders (one is a Sale a bration item!) and kept the colors to Pink Pirouette and Whisper White.
Stamp Set – Baby, We’ve Grown
Card stock – Whisper White, Pink Pirouette
Ink – Jet Black Stazon
Etc – Pink Pirouette Stampin Write Marker, Fancy Fan and Decorative Dots (SA embossing folders, Bigz Spiral Rose die, Heart Framelits, Bird punch
Now, on to the Spiral Rose die. This might get a bit long, so just scroll if you want!
This is the die. It’s a Bigz die so you can cuts lots of different materials – and several layers of card stock at once! You start at the small end and roll it to the center. I like to use a bamboo skewer to get it started.
Depending on how tight you roll it and how much of the spiral you use, you can get very different looks. Starting from the left you see the full rose, (and using just half the spiral) the bottom half of the rose and the top half of the rose.
When making the tiniest rose (using the smaller half of the spiral) I add a little cup from the Boho Blossom punch.
This is the rose cut out of felt (and glued to a hair clip.)
Designer Series paper.
Vellum Card stock.
To make the large rose shown on the card, add to Blossom punches underneath a spiral rose.
I used Dimensionals between the 2 punches.
If you’ve made it this far, congratulations and big hugs! Tomorrow I’ll show you more projects made with the Spiral Rose Die. Hugs, Fran
