Happy Saturday everyone! Today I'm showcasing the beautiful paper flowers from I Am Roses with Conie Fong's Noelle's Gift.
I love all of Conie's digital stamps and this one is beautiful! I printed her on Xpress It Blending Card and colored her with Copic Markers. The gold sprinkles around the outer edge of the image is Stampendous Frantage Aged Taupe Embossing Enamel.
My decorative papers are from Echo Park Deck The Halls 6x6 Paper
Pad. The sentiment is from an older Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp Set. I used
C.C. Designs Dies to cut the scalloped circle around my image and the
shape around the sentiment. The glittery ribbon is from Walmart.

Stephanie with you today and I'm so excited to share once again another project with fun tips that I learned here and there. Today's project is very different from my latest ones, because I was truly feeling about putting on lots of layers and embellishments on my card. But want to know a secret? It's still really simple to realize this card, no matter what! It just looks complicated :-P
So first, I'm going to share with you one of the biggest hacks in cardmaking regarding dimension; it's always about the eye and the angle! When you look at this card, you may think "wow, she put lots of foam tape on there". Well, no! In fact, after colouring my All Dressed Up"Time to sparkle" image and die-cutting her with the smallest die from the Regal Frame Die Set, all I had to do was cut a few squares of pattern papers and place them on my cardbase. But back to my first tip, shall we? As you can see, the Majestic Frame was die-cut in white cardstock to pop onto the Eleganza - 6x6 Paper Pack and I only tapped down the middle section of it, so that the flourishes could stir up and give the illusion of dimension.
Another tip that I can share with you when creating something as "heavy-looking" as this is to try to leave some white space, but not too much. To create the perfect balance, I decided to stamp the sentiment from the Magnolia Splendor set right onto the Regal Frame die-cut that features the focal point, so that they're not completely apart.
I added a few flowers from I Am Roses that were a perfect match to my paperpad on the right side of the same sentiment, and that was it!
Today I'm sharing with you a card made for I am roses design team. Since Christmas is just arround the corner, I made a Christmas card with Magnolia's Holly Wreath Tilda from Aspen Holidays collection.
Image was coloured using Distress ink pads.
For this card I used some old Christmas design papers from Maja Design. Dies used are from Magnolia.
I used a lot of super adorable I am roses flowers:
There's still an active challenge over at I
am roses challenge blog, the theme is Anything goes. All you need to do
