When my turn came around again to do a blog post for Canadian Scrapbooker magazine this week, I was excited that the date was in May….because I wanted to share another flower technique and Mother’s Day is coming up.

I was also excited about a new Spellbinders Donna Salazar die I bought called “Bitty Blossoms.”

Spellbinders Donna Salazar “Bitty Blossoms”

I have been enjoying making my own simple spiral roses lately, and when I saw this die, I  wanted to give it a try.

Check.  It.  Out.  I am ALL OVER this Spellbinders die! 

I LOVED the results….I was making flowers day and night! (slight exaggeration)

I made a card featuring the simple spiral roses and another card using this Spellbinders die…..both with Karen Foster’s Mother’s Day patterned paper. 

Hmmmm….I just might have to give one of these to MYSELF on Mother’s Day.


Here’s a closer look at the roses on the card…

They are so pretty clustered together with a ribbon.

 If you’d like to see how I made both of these types of spiral flowers, I created a detailed step-by-step photo tutorial over at the Canadian Scrapbooker’s website posted on Jackie’s blog called “Tuesday With The Team.”  Click HERE to see the tutorial.

Next week, I’ll be posting a special framed Mother’s Day layout on my blog that also features these Spellbinders flowers…and lots of other cool techniques!

    Loooooooove these cards Kelly…especially those adorable rolled flowers! The dies add such a lovely edging to the rolled flowers don’t they? I really like how you tucked in the ribbon bow behind them. Sweet little touch that gives it that something extra!

    Oh, I am not a flower girl generally, but how I love those. You did a wonderful job with the flowers. That’s a great die. I love the beveled edges. Of course your cards are wonderful, too.
