Foam Roses...

Happy Monday,

I thought I would share today my Brand New Christmas Rose made with the new Silk White flower moulding foam form Craft Artist for Crafts too.  It works so well when coloured with the Verbena dye ink form Izink making, to me at least, like a traditional Christmas Rose.

I have used my round bauble die as a base for the flowers and tied these with the shaded ivy stamp and die and my Rose leaves ( cut in the Green Flower foam from the new Christmas colour pack).

The foam is 0.6mm thick meaning that, as here, you can mould this in your hands no need for an iron or a heat gun.  I coloured the petals with the ink and a finger dauber using mint green in the centre.  I then stretched the petals to give some definition and added the centres and some stamens from my stash.
The background is made using the new Sams Starz die set just cut in white and mounted onto white.

I added layers in the olive green Crafts too linen card and silver with more layers of the crystal gold card I sued for the rest of the card.



  1. Morning John, this is so beautiful, the foam Christmas Rose and Ivy look amazing (hopefully mine is being delivered today). This sample is a really beautiful Christmas creation, the Bauble is a brilliant frame for it too, yes it gets my vote. xxx

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
