CSF Saturday Hop - Over the Top

Today's Create With Stamping Friends Saturday Hop theme is Over the Top - add some extras. This was a fun theme for me because I love "more is MORE" - more layers, more texture, more embellishments! I chose the Layers of Beauty stamp set because I wanted to play around with coloring the roses like the Peace Rose. Did you know it was first introduced in 1945, to commemorate the fall of Berlin to Allied forces, and the end of World War II?

I don't think I was able to capture their true beauty. The roses look like they are lit from within with a warm glow. I tried, though!

The Crumb Cake background and Basic White circles were embossed with the Distressed Tile folder, and a bit of Wildly Flowering DSP was torn and distressed for a shabby chic look. I used two greetings from Unbounded Love for the sentiment, added rhinestone "dew drops" and loops of Linen Thread to finish the card.

That's all for today - see you next Saturday! Up next is Libby Fens at Libby Stamps. Or click the "back" button to go back to Lori at Loritamarie Crafts.

  1. Love your interpretation of the rose. It does have that glow, I'm sure in person it must be even better. Love to watch along as you all create and inspire others of us. Take care and enjoy God's day.
