Roses and more roses

Hello ...

I have had a few sweet comments about my little handmade little roses and there is no great secret to making them ... this is the link to the tutorial I used.

These were made from card stock (digitally printed) and can be found on a previous posting Here

As can this  Here.... 

Card stock and DP are great for making these roses but be careful with vellum as it is not so forgiving and can tear easily but I think it gives a nice effect too.
I sometimes use glue or dimensionals to adhere them to a project - I have even sewn them on... I think Beate of SCS also does a great tutorial showing the use of wire to secure them to your project Here
Another TIP is not to worry too much about the glue - I spray mine with adhesive spray to dip in glitter and the spray will keep your layers together.
I hope this helps you all .... 

I have been busy clearing my small crafting room.... Can't believe just how much I hoard!
I hope you all had a great weekend and I'll be back soon with some things to share.

Till soon....
