Hershey Roses

I made 6 of these long stem roses with gold centers and 6 with silver centers. I sprayed the gold centered ones with gold glimmer mist, but when I tested the silver spray, it looked black. The pedals are made from the ornament punch and the center is 2 kisses glued together. Gave them to my pastor's wife for her birthday. (C)STAMPIN' UP! TFL

Roses & Carnations

Made these for my Pastor's wife. It was mt dh's husband that suggested putting red paper shreds in the bottom and a bow. Carnations were made with the scalloped punch and roses were made with the flower punch. Both punches are Stampin Up! TFL

On a Flower Kick

I've been wanting to make flowers for such a long time! I just didn't want to put them on cards because the are too big. My Pastor's wife is having a birthday soon, so I will make a bunch of flowers for her. The first thing I tried is the candle flower. It uses a battery operated tea light, white and green card stock, Rose Red ink, the ornament & 1 3/8" punches, glue, glitter and a lot of curling, scraping and sponging. It looks a whole lot better IRL.

Valentine's Day '11

I know it seems like a long time since I posted a card on here, but I have been making a stash of copies of cards. Here is my Valentine card. It's distressed, which takes a long time to do! Nice card for someone who doesn't like all the frilly stuff. I colored different parts of the heart stamp instead of having it just one color. What do you think?
Stamps: Listen with the Heart, Itty Bitty Backgrounds, AYC
Paper: Ruby Red, Mellow Moss, Perfect Plum, Naturals Ivory
