Spiral Roses

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. 

Supplies
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.)

Cork!

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

  5. I missed this post yesterday but I’m glad I saw it today. I love all of your 3-D projects Fran, you are an amazing, talented artist with an enormous amount of patience and the kindness and selflessness to share it with us. Thank you so much.

  6. Your card us adorable and the roses are just perfect! Can I ask you how you glued them together? I am having one heck of a time trying to figure that part out 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing your lovely projects 🙂

  7. I used glue on the bottom tab but the easiest (and fastest) way is to use hot glue.  Glue dots also work – but hot glue is fastest.  Let me know if you need more help  Hugs, Fran
