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!
