We Are Never So Lost – Folded Rose Tutorial

Hiya there!  Thanks for all your kind words yesterday.  Just a reminder that today is the last day to leave a comment to win the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog Hop prizes.  Check out THIS post to see what you need to do.  In the meantime I have a card to share with the sweetest sentiment from Quietfire Design called We are Never So Lost.

There were enough new releases with Spellbinders that I’ll be reaching for them for some time to come.  I haven’t shown these here yet so here we go . . .  On my card base I layered Spellbinders Reverse Wonky Rectangle.  On top of that I layered the Fleur De Lis Doily Accents border.  I showcased a folded rose – I’ve done this before and many of you asked for a tutorial, so I have that ready today.  I love this rose and although it looks intimidating, it is very easy.  Lastly I embellished the rose with leaves from the new set, Spellbinders Foliage.

I will tell you that this folded rose goes very quickly once you remember the sequence to folding  each layer.  Have you ever made a cootie catcher?  This is easier :-)


Stamps: Quietfire Design – We Are Never So Lost
: Coredinations, The Paper Company, Mulberry Paper
Ink: Colorbox Chalk Ink – Red Rouge, Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Spellbinders Reverse Wonky Rectangles,
Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Doily Accents, Spellbinders Foliage, Ribbon, Pearls

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Smooches!!

If you wish you can email with the answer so I know for sure before I order some paper. Thanks for any of your help. Keep up the great work that you do.ReplyCancel

    SPECTACULAR!!!!! You are awesome. I have now found with this one four different flowers to make that can be done in different sizes, and I won’t need to spend money on manufactured ones. That is going to leave me more of my stamping budget for other things I cannot make myself. Thank you so very much. Many Blessings, KathleenReplyCancel

    Oh I wanted to mention that my mother, who is NOT at all computer savvy and is very intimidated with anything requiring you to “log in”. But she KNOWS how to type in “www.amazingpapergrace.com” in the google search bar. So every time I get an entry from you I call her and let her know that you have a new post. You are the ONLY person who she “follows.” She and I both agree that your are an AMAZING ARTIST and Blessed with a Fantastic Talent. fI we could ever receive a project from any ONE person in the world…it would be one of yours. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with the world and allowing simple people like us to be blessed by your creativity.

    Dear Becca,
    I made your flower several times with different papers, before I came up with a new idea. I had recalled how I once made dryer sheet paper (2 dryer sheets stuck together with mod podge) and had some left over. I tried it out and it worked well because the flowers are stiffer, but more pliable. You have to spray the sheets with a glimmer spray then how gorgeous they appear! Thank you so much for this fantastic tutorial. Your blog is such inspiration. Take care of yourself.ReplyCancel
