Soft yellow roses

These flowers are one of those mistakes that end up really pretty! I was trying a technique that failed miserably, so I tweeked it a bit and made it work for me! Hope you enjoy it!

White Shimmery paper, Stampin Up
Fifth Ave. Floral stamp set, Stampin Up
White craft stamp pad, Stampin Up (any embossing ink would work fine)
clear embossing powder
paint brush
Stampin Up re-inkers-Blush Blossom, Barely Banana, and Apricot Appeal
Glimmer Mist-Gold
Stampin Up Card stock- Barely Banana, Blush Blossom
Gold metallic paper
Sentiment stamp- I Brake for Stamps #900 Helen Keller quote (Sale going on right now link is here)
Gold stamp pad for sentiment-Brilliance Galaxy Gold

Emboss the flowers on the white shimmery paper. Watercolor them with the reinkers as desired. Let them dry and carefully cut them out. Lightly spray the card base of barely banana with gold glimmer mist. Mount the flowers on the base. Stamp the sentiment in gold on the top left corner. Mount this entire piece onto a metallic gold, trimming closely. Mount this on a sheet or card of Blush Blossom.


  1. So what were you 'trying' to do? LOL! I love this. Keep forgetting to pull out my glimmer mists....

  2. If it is a mistake to begin with, I wish I can do it more often. LOL
    It is so pretty and love the shinny edges show on the middle layer too! TFS

  3. I was wondering what you meant...LOL, when I opened your page..because those DID turn out beautifully!
