Stunning everlasting roses

I love roses - receiving, giving and growing them!  The reality is that they die, sigh.  With an upcoming 50th Wedding Anniversary for dear friends of ours, I wanted to give them the gift of everlasting roses!  Using the Spiral Flower Die, Big Shot and these stunning collections of paper creating 50 everlasting roses was a labor of love that was fun to do!
Create these Everlasting Roses with:
Gold Foil Sheets (132622)
Gold Foil Designer Vellum (133363)
Very Vanilla card stock (101650)
Blushing Bride card stock (131198)
Spiral Flower Die (129379)
Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (113439)
Bone Folder (102300)
Hot Glue Gun
 
If you enjoy this card and want to have some fun crafting with me, CLICK HERE and RSVP ASAP for my Upcoming Classes!!  Most classes are FREE with a qualified purchase!!
 
RECEIVE YOUR OWN COPY of the New Idea Book and Catalog when You EMAIL ME your name, number and the best time to call, I will send it with a hand-stamped gift!!
These roses are easy to create!  Use the Spiral Flower Die and cut two materials.  Here the Gold Foil Sheets and Gold Foil Vellum are layered.  The secret to creating depth and movement is using the Bone Folder.  I like to use it on the edges of the flower so the leaves have a lovely fall to it.  Use Hot Glue to seal them to the base for a super strong hold. (Be careful, hot glue is HOT - ouch!)
Our dear friends are having their 50th Wedding Anniversary so of course we need these pretty Gold roses.  They are decorating with blush tipped cream roses - so incorporating this look is easy.  Use the Very Vanilla and Blushing Bride card stock and do the same as the gold flowers.  Roll the edges with the bone folder, roll and use the hot glue to adhere it.  This is a great way to add interest and make for a pretty table decoration!
WHEW!  So we worked for hours, my helpers Stephany, Marta and I.. but this labor of love is one that will bless our beloved friends (who I am often mistake as her daughter and love her deeply).
All lined up and ready to party!  So add a strip with the names and date and these pretty decorations become a great gift to the guests!!  Simply adhere it to the bottom of the rose and it can be a memorable 'leaf' of sorts.

In person, these roses are breathtaking!  They are everlasting, perfect roses that will blossom and add beauty to the festivities (they are re-saying their vows).  Being a part of this special day means so much to me!   I love that these are a fun decoration that will bless our dear friends.  Celebrating a remarkable occurrence, especially in this day and age, is a wonderful way to enjoy life.  These roses will live on and delight for years to come... and isn't that just the coolest thing??  Did YOU enjoy these fun 3D 50 roses?  It's amazing what a few pieces of paper, this Spiral Flower Die, Big Shot and some love can create!

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
