Today’s tutorial on Splitcoaststampers is on how to create rolled ribbon flowers. They are fun and easy! For my sample I rolled a flower out of May Arts Yellow Silk ribbon. It was adhered to a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock that had been cut and embossed with a Beaded Oval Nestabilities die and topped with a Sage Green Pearl from Want2Scrap.
The card base was cut with the second smallest Scallop Oval Grand Nestabilities die out of Neenah Solar White cardstock. Another single piece of white cardstock was cut with the same die.
A small strip of white cardstock was cut and embossed with a Parisian Accent die. It was adhered under a strip of Cosmo Cricket Odds & Ends paper. The strip was adhere two other pieces of the same paper pack. The layers were cut and embossed with the second smallest Oval Grand Nestabilities die. The layers were stitched to the single scallop oval layer before that was adhered to the card base.
The second largest Scallop Heart Nestaboard piece was painted with White Crackle Paint. After it dried a sentiment from Verve’s Kind Words was stamped over the cracked area with Black Acrylic paint. It was then embossed with UTEE. I saw this cool technique over at Shelley Hickox blog. She is an amazing artist. Once it cooled down, I added a Rhinestone Heart Nestabling to it’s edge. The heart was adhered to the card base and topped with the ribbon flower.
