Rosette tutorial

Several people said they would like to see a tutorial for the rosettes that I made on these cards last week. The pictures are not the best, I am taking them on Sunday night and don't have good light, but you will definitely be able to get the idea. I am using some scrap paper for my demonstration.

You will need:
Paper strip cut to 1-1/2 x 12 inches
Small circle of paper (for the bottom)
Scoring tool
Strong adhesive
Embellishment for top of rosette


The first step is to decide how wide you want the rosette. I wanted one approximately 3-inches wide, so I cut a strip of paper 1-1/2 inches wide and 12-13 inches long. If your paper is not long enough, you can connect two strips of paper to form one longer one.


If you want a rounded or fancy edge on the rosette, punch one edge of your paper strip. I used a scalloped edge punch on my rosettes.

Then score the paper to make it easier to fold. I just used my embossing tool and my paper cutter to score between each scallop.



Accordion fold your paper on each score mark. This is also a good time to cover your circle with adhesive.

Put adhesive on one end of the accordion folded paper. Pinch the sides together to make a circle.

Adhere the rosette to the adhesive covered circle to hold your rosette in shape.


Here is a peek at the back side of the rosette.



Then you can decorate the top side as you would like.


I hope this all makes sense. If you have any questions, please email me at shestamps11-blogs at yahoo dot com.

Thanks for looking!

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
