Fifth Avenue Roses

Stampin up fifth avenue floral

It’s Day 2 of my “In the Pink” tribute to my sweet sister-in-law, Karol Harris, and recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Click here for details and Day 1.

Coming Up!  This Thursday, the Pals Paper Arts design team  will offer an all pink Stampin’ Up! Blog Candy Giveaway for participants in their “In the Pink” Challenge (PPA14).

Here’s my inspiration (both color and images) for today’s post:



  • Stampin up fifth avenue floral rose I used Chocolate Chip Craft Ink  with Clear Embossing Powder to create a rich, heat embossed finish.
  • Paper Snips and Stampin’ Dimensionals take these Fifth Avenue Floral roses from pretty to “wow!”
  • Quick and crisp.  Chit Chat Rub-Ons offer a sentiment for most occasions. You get one sheet each of Whisper White and Chocolate Chip.
  • You have been asking!  My bow tying tips will be demonstrated on video with Thursday’s post.

  1. Love this color combo, Mary! Very pretty 🙂

  2. the pink is intoxicatingly fabulous. and the cause couldn’t be better. i’m LOVING this week on your blog! xo

  3. Wow! This is really beautiful. I love how you snipped the roses out and the chocolate chip embossing. You captured the look of the dress in the photo perfectly.

  4. So glad to hear about the bow video – I tied the same ribbon for almost an hour yesterday to get the bow straight – no exaggeration! Your card is lovely but I have to tell you I am lovin’ those inspiration pictures as well!

  5. Lovely card!

  6. both of your cards are beautiful, Mary. Hugs,

  7. Hi Mary,
    Firstly…I love the card!!
    But I do have a quick question… what does the inside of the card look like… I have always been curious on whether you stop the ribbon at the end of the card on the front… or whether you put a full line of ribbon on the inside?? Plus… what adhesive do you use to keep the ribbon firmly to the card? I never seem to get my ribbon to look as seamless as you do!! Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Sue: Actually, I do both. On this card I wrapped the ribbon around the entire front so it shows on the inside (a pretty touch). I also will wrap a single element on the front of a card–in that case, the ribbon wouldn’t show on the inside of the card.

    I did a video yesterday with some bow tying tips. It will be published on my blog on Thursday. Hopefully, that will be helpful.



  8. Very pretty! Sending prayers to your sister-in-law…
