Rose Tutorial:


Using Whisper White Card Stock, punch 6 flowers using Stampin’ Up!s Blossom Punch:


Sponge both sides of petals in Daffodil Delight Ink using a Stamping Sponge:
Sponge both sides of petal tips in Tangerine Tango Ink:
Using Paper Snips, make approx. 1/4” cut around each petal:


Roll each petal around paint brush handle:

Add liquid glue to center and up the petals of the first flower:

Raise up one petal and wrap petal from opposite side around it:

 
Wrap next petal around center and petal from the opposite side. Continue with remaining petals:
Add glue to the center of the second flower and partially up each petal and adhere first flower in center. Continue same procedure, wrapping alternating petals:


If you wanted a rose bud. Punch a flower from Boho Blossom Punch in Garden Green Card Stock and glue to bottom of the bud:

To continue on with the rose, glue the third flower the same way as you did the first two. 
To attach the fourth, fifth and sixth flower, only apply glue to the center and not up the sides of the petals.

To make the petals more life-like, take a tweezers and gently bend the petals backwards.

Optional: spray flowers with Frost White Shimmer Paint diluted with alcohol:
