Stampin' Up! Card Stock (an 8-1/2 x 11 sheet makes 1 Rose)
Stampin' Up! Classic Ink Pad
1. Punch out one circle, and then as many ornament punch-outs as you can ; these are the petals!
*I used So Saffron and Pretty in Pink card stock.
2. Using the Sponge Dauber and a Classic Ink Pad, ink up the edges of each petal. You'll want to use an ink shade that's darker than the card stock. I used Red Riding Hood ink with the So Saffron Rose, and Melon Mambo om the Pretty In Pink Rose.
*You can use a Stamping Sponge (101610- $3.50. 3 to a package, you can cut into 4 pieces. These are a little messier on the fingers though).
3. Use the Paper-Piercing Tool to slightly curl the left and right sides of at least 8 petals.
4. Using a glue dot* to attach the bottom tag of the petal to the outer edges of the circle. You want to slightly overlap them. After you've covered the first outer part, push the tab up so the petal will stand up a bit. Attach the next row of petals slightly infront of the first petals.
* You can use Sticky Strip (104294 - $6.95) or Tombo to attach the petals but it adds time to your assembly.
5. You will continue attaching petals in this way until you reach the center of the flower. Be sure to curl the remaining petals alot more; you can uncurl them to achieve the shape you want.
6. Before attaching the final petal, curl it up and attach it to itself near the bottom half to create a slight funnel shape.
