Coming Up Roses

We’re excited, once again, to be partnering with the folks over at Spellbinders for a Spring mini blog hop! As Spellbinders design partners this year, we’ve been blessed to use many of their exciting products, and we know their design team is enjoying the Stampendous products we sent for their use! Monday and Tuesday, our team has shared projects with you and today we have more inspiration!  I'm sharing my fun projects I’ve made with the Spellbinders products I’ve received.  Today we're the  featured company on their blog and I'm one of our two designers posting tutorials for you focused on the newest Spellbinders products.  Here's my projects:



Here's what I used to create these projects:

Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink Pad by Tsukineko®
VersaFine™ Onyx Black Ink Pad by Tsukineko®
Tim Holtz® Peeled Paint Distress Ink™ Pad
Neenah® Classic Crest™ Solar White Cover Stock
Blossom Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Sour Apple Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
May Arts Ribbon 1/4 Inch Sheer Ribbon - Pink
May Arts Ribbon 1 Inch Sheer Nylon Edge Ribbon - Pink
May Arts Ribbon 2 Millimeter Baker's Twine Ribbon - Pink
Copic® Markers - R81, R83, R85; YG61, YG63, YG67
Want2Scrap® White Pearls Self Adhesive - 72 Count
Tsukineko® Sheer Shimmer Spritz - Sparkle
Tim Holtz® idea-ology® Baubles
Beacon® 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue
Scrapbook Adhesives® 3D Foam Mounting Squares by 3L®
Scotch® Removable Tape
Recycled Silver Gift Box




I absolutely love these bezels!  There's something so stately and elegant about them and they really appeal to my inner Victorian Lady!  And what could possibly look more elegant with roses than pearls?  So much possibility with one piece!  You can even add some goodies inside the bezel and close it off with the handy plexiglass cover, however, I couldn't decide what to add so I left it plain!  Still beautiful, still elegant, it's not missing a thing!

Here's what I did to create this project:


  1. Stamp rose images onto white cardstock with Memento ink and color with Copics
  2. Place large bezel die over image and decide where you want to die cut image
  3. Tape die in place with removable tape and run through die cutting machine (I used a Big Shot with Genesis Magnetic Plates)
  4. Adhere die cut piece into bezel
  5. Paint on shimmer spritz with brush
  6. Attach pearls to bezel as shown
  7. Hang pearl "Bauble" from bottom of bezel
  8. Attach ribbon through top loop and knot ends for wear


The Tudor Rose Card Front set makes it so easy to create a fast, yet very impressive card for many different occasions.  I paired it with my Labels One Die Set to add a little more color and depth.  Since I decided to stamp the white panel behind the pink overlay, I kept the pink clean and simple.

Here's what I did to create this project:

  1. Create an A2 vertical card base with a tent fold from green cardstock 
  2. Die cut floral inset with border using pink cardstock
  3. Trim a piece of white cardstock to fit behind pink die cut
  4. Stamp Industrial crackled paint background stamp onto white cardstock with green ink
  5. Adhere pink overlay onto white background piece
  6. Using Labels One die 3, die cut a piece of green cardstock
  7. Using Labels One die 2, die cut a piece of white cardstock
  8. Stamp Industrial crackled paint background stamp onto white die cut label with green ink
  9. Stamp sentiment onto white label with black ink
  10. Adhere white die cut label to green die cut label
  11. Wrap pink ribbon around overlay piece attached to white background piece and adhere ends to back
  12. Trim another piece of sheer pink ribbon, dovetail ends, cross and attach to adhered die cut labels
  13. Adhere pink and white overlay piece to green card base
  14. Using foam mounting squares, attach die cut labels over pink label in center
  15. Attach pearls to flower centers


The Tudor Rose Card Front Set also comes with a sweet little gift tag, the perfect complement!

Here's what I did to create this project:


  1. Die cut tag from pink cardstock
  2. Stamp "To: and From:" image onto tag
  3. Adhere pearl to center of flower on tag
  4. Add twine and attach to bow on box
