Valentine's Decor

I have been wanting to make something for Valentine's Day, and this was the perfect wall hanging for a spot I want to fill. 

I cut hearts out of Imaginisce Enchanted paper with my Slice Basics card.  Next I painted them with Ranger clear rock candy distress paint.  After they dried, I hot glued them to a styrofoam wreath.  From there, I added some i-Rock gems here and there.

My final touches were the flowers, trinket pins, and bow.  Now these are the new Imaginisce Paper Roly Rosies.  I created them by using the Imaginisce Petal Roller.  I inked the edges with Ranger worn lipstick distress ink and dotted them with icicle stickles.  The trinket pins are Making Memories and the ribbon is May Arts.

I love this little Petal Roller!  I do not have good hand coordination, and this makes things so easy for me.  Watch the video on YouTube here to see how it works.  You can see how beautiful they turn out!  I was really excited today when I found out that Imaginisce is releasing fabric Roly Rosies and different shaped flowers.  They are also going to release new i-Rock gems in different colors and shapes!  I just love when companies make things so easy and fun for me!!
