Tarheel Stamper - Christmas Rose Tutorial

As promised here is the tutorial for the rose I made for the Christmas Rose on the tag box.  I love these and made a bunch for my Stampin' Up! Christmas tree I have here. 

Hope you enjoyed the Royal Blog Tour as much as I did.  There are so many great ideas to case.  What a talented bunch of stampers we had on this tour!  Wow so many wonderful castles to visit!

The tutorial is below and a link to a pdf file for the tutorial is at the end if you want to save it for future access. 

Christmas Rose Tutorial
1. Punch necessary flower, circles and ovals.

2. Snip toward center of all scallop circles to form petals.

3. Place flower on top of piercing mat or mouse pad. Starting on outside edge of petal and using larger end of stylus, press down on stylus while rubbing in a circular motion. These will make the card stock shiny and appear worn or antiqued. Continue this along length of the petal toward the center. Repeat for all petals on flower.

4. Using stylus large end, rub around the inside close to where you snipped the petals. Continue large circular motion moving in toward center until you achieve the desired result. Repeat steps 2 to 4 for remaining Cherry Cobbler large and small scallop circles.

5. Using stylus large end, rub around the inside of the small Boho Blossom So Saffron flower.

6. For the leaves, place punched Old Olive large oval on top of mat. Emboss a line with small end of stylus down the center of leaf. With small end, emboss lines on each half of leave to simulate veining. Run stylus down center to define that line again. Repeat for all leaves. Fold on center line and bend if desired in realistic leaf shape.

7. Sponge edges of Cherry Cobbler flowers with Cherry Cobbler ink.

8. Sponge edge of Boho Blossoms small flower with So Saffron ink.

9. Sponge edges of leaves with Always Artichoke ink. Lightly rub sponge over veining on leaves leaving some areas without sponging.

10. Put small amount of Tombow Multi-glue in center of So Saffron flower and sprinkle red chunky glitter on top. Let dry a while and then shake off excess.

11. Glue layers of flowers together using two large and two small scallop circles and one small flower.

12. Glue leaves to back of flower.

13. Spray flower with mixture of Frost White Shimmer paint and alcohol. I used an old spray Stampin’ Mist bottle for mine. If you do this please protect yourself and do it in a well-ventilated area. Do not breath in pain mixture.

Use as desired. I used on my small Christmas tree by just standing up on branches. Also can use as a gift topper or on top of a box such as the Christmas Tag box I made for the Royal Blog Tour. I was inspired by Jerrie Jimenez of a A Touch of Grace. She has some lovely creations.
