Wings To Fly!

Hi!  Debbie Seyer here!   I am so excited!  Today is my first post as Guest Designer for May here at The Rubber Cafe!  I absolutely love all the goodies I ordered and can't wait to show you a card I made.  Here it is!

As part of being Guest Designer, I got to order some free product.  What a deal, right?  I am so happy that I got a bottle of  The Rubber Cafe's Scrap Happy Sheer Glue.  I really love it especially when I made these rolled flowers on my card.  Here is how I did those:

I cut/embossed the middle sized flower from the Bitty Blossoms die template.  Using a dry embosser stylus, I embossed the first 5 petals on the front side and then embossed the rest of the petals on the back.  It will look like this:

Start rolling up the flower, using the stylus to help you get it started.  When you have it all rolled up, place a few drops of glue on the bottom circle to glue the flower together.  This is where the Scrap Happy Glue really works great.

Here is a close-up of the rolled flowers I made on the card.  See those cute Pearl Jellie Dots I added in the middle of the flowers?  The Scrap Happy Sheer Glue stayed tacky and allowed me to put those into place.

I just love this "Steampunk" Charity Wings set.  First I stamped the dress form stamp onto the strip of vanilla cardstock.  Then added a die I cut/embossed to created the dress.  I stamped the wings and fussy cut them out.  Then I added the wings on the back before adhering everything down.  I used the Scrap Happy Sheer glue to attach the Pearl Jellie Dots.

The sentiment was stamped first and then cut/embossed using a banner from the Nested Pennants dies from Spellbinders Paper Arts.

Here is a shot of my completed project surrounded by The Rubber Cafe products I used.

I hope you have enjoyed my first guest designer post.  I have really had a lot of fun creating with The Rubber Cafe products.  Can't wait to show you some of my other creations!

Have a great day!

Enabler! Now I need this die!

Gorgeous card. I love the colors you used too. When you say that you used the stylus to emboss the petals, does that mean that you just rubbed the inside of each petal with the stylus? Sorry if this is a dumb question.I love how your flower turned out.

Thank you for your tutorial, I Really Needed it! I just bought the Spellbinders Blossoms #1 die a few days ago, and I've been having a terrible time with rolling it! It was so bad, I was going to take it back to the store this Saturday, but.... Your tutorial opened my eyes as to how it was Supposed to be rolled!! Now I'm off to find my matt and stylus pen!!
Again, Thank you so much for your informative tutorial :)

I use that cheap foam from Micheals and the end of a paint brush ... works the same ... there is a Martha Stewart bone folder that has a stylus in it .
