Spiral Rose Layout

I just love the new Spiral Rose Die from Stampin' Up! (item number 129379, $29.95, available for a short time only). I keep finding new ways to use it. This month I created a layout using the die to make all the flowers and its negative image as a stencil to make the background behind the photo. I used a couple of the lovely Sale-A-Bration (SAB) stamp sets to stamp rows of flowers and the sentiment. Sale-A-Bration is on till March 31st, and you can order a FREE product from the SAB catalogue for each $90 you spend. Shop with me now to get your goodies :)

Anyway, back to the layout. I used Whisper White and Blasic Black cardstock and made the flowers from Soft Sky, Rich Razzleberry and Basic Black cardstock. I brushed some of them with gold ink. The fringed border and one of the flowers are made with the new Fringe Scissors. I added air dried clay centres with glitter on them, rhinestones and brads too. (Thank you to Traci Cornelius for lots of lovely ideas for how to use this die!)

Here it is!

Spiral Rose Die Heart Wreath

Yes, I am still loving to use my Spiral Rose Die! I have had a fun time this week making felt and paper roses. I made this little wreath using a wooden frame I got at Spotlight, by hot gluing the flowers onto the frame and adding some bits of ribbon. I might fill in a bit more of the frame with ribbon (seam binding) before I'm done:



Here's a picture frame i dressed up with some felt spiral roses and Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding:




I have also put together a banner I got for free by making a $90 order! I love Sale-A-Bration time. I am getting a lot of new product for free this way :) (Find out how to get your own free products here).
The photos I have taken of the banner have washed it out due to having a dark background so I will move it and take a picture for you before too long.

Have a great stamping and crafting day!
