Create Beautiful Roses

Pin It! I loved the roses that I made for the tag used in the 2009 12 Tags of Christmas. I also made a larger one made from the same Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die. I love how it turned out. I embossed the petals and used distress inks before assembling the rose. I then took some Perfect Pearl color and using a paint brush I brushed it on the edges of the petals. I'm sure this isn't the last you've seen of these. I'll be making many more...and probably be coming up with lots of variations.

Another fabulous tutorial! I can't tell you how much we appreciate all the time and effort you put into these! This rose is incredible and you have inspired me to give it a try! :)

Thanks for a wonderful tutorial. Pictures are great, but nothing beats a video. I was just looking at the photos of your craft room/studio just drooling over the space you have created for yourself....amazing. Truly my dream come true.

Gorgeous, as usual, Christie! Thanks for showing us "how to"!

Thanks for another great tutorial Christie! Isn't it great that YouTube now allows more than 10 minutes so you don't have to rush right through the instructions! I've gotta tell you that I am going through my Crystal Effects (same as glossy accents I think) very quickly now that I took your advice. It really does dry much faster than even the glue that says it's supposed to dry quickly!

Christie, thanks for the quick tutorial and for the information about Tim's tags. I am now following his 12 Tags of Christmas and hope to try and make a few of them soon.

Christie,
Once I think I figured out a way to store something.... you come along and have a better way! Thanks so much, I will be redoing the way I store my spellbinders (currently using the cd cases). Love your creative ideas, it keeps my small room well organized

I like this, Christie. I store mine in binders as well, but use the cropper hopper zip n flip pages...I think I like the magnet idea better.
