Nautical Rose Tutorial

Heartfelt Creations July Alumni Blog Hop: Nautical Rose Tutorial & Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the July 2016 Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop!  I’m the first stop on the hop this month.  From here you will go to Vicki’s lovely blog.  Today I’m sharing a Nautical Rose Tutorial using the Botanical Rose stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations.  I’ve paired it up with gorgeous satin ribbon and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

    This is absolutely gorgeous Kathy! I love your idea of using the DP for the base of your rose. It really gave it depth of color.

    Beautiful card! Pretty flower too! I have used designer paper for my flowers too and it gives the flower a different, interesting look. They are fun to make.

    Another lovely card Kathy. That color sage is great on your card. Is there such a thing as a nautical rose? Or is it just what you’re calling it. lol
