Krafty tips and tutes: how to make paper roses

Hi everyone!

Today it’s my turn for another Krafty tips and tuts. I want to show you how you can make paper roses for your cards or projects. You can make them out of colored paper,  design paper or cardstock. It’s easier if you use thin paper! Now you have always the perfect roses for your project!

So, this is what you need:

  -    A piercing mat
-       -  Glue
-         - Scissors
-        -  Embossing tools in different sizes
-         -  Flower punch or die cuts (every size works)

Step 1: let’s start with punching out 4 identical flowers

Step 2: now you have to cut them like the flowerparts on this picture. You keep 1 half over, you can use it for another flower.

Step 3: you have to make circles on all the parts from the flower with your embossing pen. By doing that, the parts curl up and you get the perfect shape for your rose.

For the tiny parts, you have to use the smallest embossing pen.

This is how they look like after embossing them all.

Step 4: after that, you have to curl the outsides of the petals with your smallest embossing tool. You have to lay your petal with the round side facing upwards. Now you can emboss the outsides.

Your petals have to look like this, we’re almost there! If they lost their shape from the second step, you have to make them curl again with the embossing tool.

Step 5: Glue all the parts together, starting from the underside


Now, you have your own homemade paperrose!

And that's my card, with my own homemade paperroses, featuring Smarty pants from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

I hope you liked it!

Nooit meer werken!

Vandaag een kort blogberichtje.

Ik moest voor een kaartje voor iemand maken voor een pensioen.  Ze kan nog tegen een stootje en vond dit wel grappig ;-)

Stempel: Just Inklined (zij heeft prachtige digi's!)
Papier: My mind's eye

Ze was er ontzettend blij mee en moest wel eens lachen. Niett alles hoeft serieus te zijn in het leven he ;-)

Liefs, Deborah

A cute animal stamp: dat is hij toch wel ;-)

Hallo iedereen!

Vandaag wil ik jullie een verjaardagskaartje laten zien met een stempel van Wild Rose Studio!
Ik vind dat olifantje zo schattig!

Het blokje is er eentje van My Mind's Eye en de vlinderrand van Noor! Design.
Ingekleurd met Copic Markers natuurlijk!

Ik zou dit kaartje graag laten meedoen met de challenge bij Inky Chicks "a cute animal stamp" en dat is deze olifant toch wel :-)

Bedankt iedereen voor altijd zo'n lieve en leuke reacties te plaatsen, dit doet me keer op keer veel plezier!

Ik heb ook een facebookpagina (hier) waar je mijn kaarten kan zien.
Liefs, Deborah

Here's a sign that I love you!

Hallo iedereen,

Vandaag opnieuw een challenge bij Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps en ik ben de gastvrouw deze keer. Ik hou er enorm van om parels te gebruiken op mijn kaarten, dus dit is dan ook mijn uitdaging voor jullie! Ik heb 2 swirls gemaakt met parels en ook in haar kapsel kan je er terug vinden.
Let er wel op; je moet een Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp gebruiken, wil je een prijs winnen.


Hi everyone!

Today it's time for another GREAT challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! I'm the hostess this time, and I want you to use pearls! I love to use them on my cards! I've made two swirls with my pearls and they are in her hair too!
You have to use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp if you want to win rubber!!

Stamp: "Marie-Antoinnete" Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps
Paper: "Yours truly" Pebbles

I hope to see YOUR creation!
