I'm sorry I didn't post this earlier like I had intended to. Stampin' Up! announced a Clearance Rack Blitz with phenomenal prices on items and I have been busy either ordering my own inexpensive goodies, or getting them for friends! But at long last I get to show you my new favourite item from the Spring catalogue.
Take a look at this gorgeous rose!!
Using the new Spiral Flower Originals Die (available beginning Jan 3, 2014), this rose took me approximately 3 minutes to make. No - really - it did! That's why this is Fast & Fabulous!
I gilded the edges with our Gold glitter and attached the rose to a tag I made in mere seconds with the new Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. Some Garden Green Leaves from the Autumn Acccents BigZ Die and some of our new Gold Baker's Twine to tie it to the Cherry Cobbler Grosgrain Ribbon wrapped around the box, and you have an instant wow-factor gift for someone special.

My club members are going to make roses at our first club night in January. I mean, how could I "not" allow them to make such beauties? They are easy. They are quick. And they are gorgeous! I've made flowers using Elegant Eggplant, Cherry Cobbler and Brushed Silver cardstock and I am looking forward this weekend to creating roses in a multitude of other colours too. They are breathtaking, don't you think?
So -- it might be a bit of a tease since you cannot order this die until Jan 3, but I did want to share a Fast & Fabulous Sneak Peak today. You can always ask Santa for a Stampin' Up! gift certificate so you can order this die in a few short weeks. Until then, I hope you all enjoy a wonderful and stress-free weekend where you get a chance to slow down and "smell the roses".
God Bless, ~Cynthia <><
