Red Rose Heart-Shaped Flower

Hi there! If you are interested in winning over $500 of product, please go to the 1st Annual Love Blog Hop at PSA Stamp Camp today!

Here's one of the 4 cards I made for the PSA Essentials Blog Hop. A few weeks ago, I was sent a box with so many lovely products to work with: Prima Marketing flowers, Helmar adhesives, and ribbons from Reasonable Ribbons. My goodness, does Prima make the most gorgeous flowers! I punched out a red heart shape and glued red roses to the cardstock (I first trimmed off the wire stems). The ribbons I had been sent were all brown, taupe, and tan colored, so I used a green Copic marker to dye the ribbon a green color. It worked! I had never tried doing that before. I stamped the PSA image and then added some Diamond Glaze to the heart for some added interest.

Click here to go to the Blog Hop today. Have a great weekend!
