This rose was made with Spellbinders Blossom dies. The original on the blog I follow was made with Blossom 5, which I will try to purchase and make the rose with that one.

I ran the 3rd & 4th die from the Blossom set and then cut the petals. Then I used a mat & stylus to shape the petals, the smaller 2 I shaped on the front and I used the stylus on the back of the 3 larger ones to shape those. The smaller ones were used for the center, I then placed glossy accents on the 1st larger petals & waited for the glossy accents to dry. I then used glossy accents half way up on the petals and adhered the petals to the center of the flower.  The other 2 layers are glued on in the center 1 at a time and shaped.

Happy Valentine's Day

I couldn't find anything to stand this card up so I used a bucket. The top card is the front and the bottom is the inside. The card base is red cardstock. They look like 2 different cards, but are not, just the front and inside of 1 card. The cardstock is folded and cut so the top makes a hinge. the front and inside is made with vellum, embossed and colored with copic and CTMH markers, and bling added because it was needed.

Marthanda's Birthday Card

Marthanda's favorite color is yellow. I don't care for yellow, so this is as close as I could get. She loves birds and I love bling soooo, this is what happens when birds and bling comes together. 
Happy Birthday Marthanda.
