 Hello everyone,

Gosh, I'm on pink run aren't I, but I do love pink, and it's the colour that just keeps popping into my head..

So as promised, my Rose, a new die from Honey Bee and not tricky at all...

But there sure a lot of bits!!

I made my papers this time for the flowers with just normal card stock and the new TH spray 
Saltwater Taffy, really pretty.

Die cut and layered up ready for glue..

The petals for the buds were so small,
 so used my blossom on my desk to cut them out..

Leaves layered..

Bud and leaves..

Two of them..

And card #1

Lots of dimension on this rose..

papers from my 12x12 stash had them ever!

Even my spellbinders oval circle die got an airing...

#2 ..
more 12x12 papers..

Trellis die, gold butterflies and black and gold embossed sentiment..
and the rose had extra shading on the peatals..

Not as much dimension..

Oh,no, BIG head is back...

Cannot go wrong with black and white stripe papers..

Dimensional, but not too much..

They all got a splattering of white ink too,
 as it does just lift them up a bit..

So there we go, I had so much fun using this gorgeous die,
 next up is the Yellow Roses..then Red and so on..

Thank you so much for stopping by,
I'll see you tomorrow..

Absolutely fabulous, love how you manage to get all those bits together to make such gorgeousness! Hugs, Valerie

Pia S said...

What gorgeous roses, I like how dimensional they are, and the white splatter and gloss on the leaves is a nice touch. They are all beautiful cards, and like you I think a striped black and white paper adds a bit of extra ‘oomph’.

Janette said...

What beautiful roses Chrissy, love the pinks too, always pretty, but you must have the patience of a saint, how you manage all the fiddly bits is amazing to my mind, think I would scream, so glad you don't :)).xx

I also tend to go to pink, I have to make myself choose another color, wow these are all just gorgeous, I keep telling myself I need no more flowers or bird dies, but then you never know. Love each and every background you have done for your beautiful flowers too, loving that salty color, love the little buds with it too!
