Rose Birthday

I tried a new technique to me for my nephew's fiance's birthday.  I found a video HERE on you tube that explains what I did, except I probably should have watched it before I did it myself because I did a few things different, I applied my sticker directly to the sticky tape and didn't hold it with the release paper while adding the glitter.  The actual demonstrations doesn't start until the 11:00 minute mark.  Also I didn't have a big piece of sticky paper like that so I put two pieces of my 2" scorpal tape together, as you can see not a great idea you can see the seam going down it.

I noticed she colored just like you do with a normal stamp, but I saw on other video's that you are not to color like that because it could mess up your marker tip, so they say to use an up and down motion just taping on color and it worked fine for me to do it that way and I was still able to do shading that way too.  I did not use a blender pen though, maybe will try that next time.  I just colored the middle of the sentiment tag with one of the colors I used for the rose.

Starform -- Outline stickers
Elizabeth Craft Design -- silk microfine glitter -- cool diamond
Scor tape
Damask Rose paper
Spellbinder -- Splendid Circles die
Taylored Expressions -- Many Mini's Occasions sentiment stamp

I am sharing my post today once again over at Stephanie's Roses of Inspiration Link up stop by and check out the posts.  Stephanie is also doing another tea cup exchange that you can sign up for, she always has something going on over at her blog.

We had a beautiful day yesterday after the little bit of rain in the morning so I headed out to do some yard work, even though my back is letting me know about it this morning it sure was nice to get outside and work in the yard, YAH!!! Spring is on it's way!!

Thanks so much once again for taking the time to stop by today,

Really lovely! I love how it looks like stained glass. You would not have noticed the line at all if you hadn't mentioned it, in face I had a hard time finding it at all. TFS!

Hi Connie, what a very pretty and dainty card.

Our weather here is warming up, it reached about 60 today so that was really nice and it's supposed to be warmer tomorrow. We figure that we'll get another big snowfall before it's over for the winter.

Enjoy your week, Kelly.
