Rosegarden lantern

It is no secret that I love the illuminary die from Tim Holtz, to create little lanterns. This time I made one decorated with red felt roses and aventurine and golden tigereye quarry stones from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies. As well as forrest foliage embossing powder, also from ECCS. I loooove their products!

I cut the illuminary from gold mirror card and very lightly sanded it with very coarse sand paper. I cut some vellum to size and as my husband was peeping into my room, to see what I was up to, said it would be cool to have a cracked window on one side, so I stamped a crack on one of the pieces of vellum. It was a cracker idea!!!

I cut some roses from red felt with the tattered pinecone die from Tim Holtz. It makes beautiful roses!! In the heart of the roses I glued some golden tigereye quarry stones to finish them off. I cut some leaves with a punch and heat embossed them with the vintage ivy embossing powder.

 Around the roses I glued some aventurine quarry stones to add some interest and texture. I think from all the quarry stones, the aventurine are my favourite.

And here the finished lantern :-)

Thank you so much for taking the time to have a look. I hope to see you here again.

Have a great day, take care and keep your craft on!



  1. Stunning!! Love the cracked panel! Your felt roses are perfect...I've never used felt, may have to try it.

    1. Thank you so much dear Cathy. I used 3D felt for tyese. It contains a starch so that if you wet them you can shaoe tgem, and then they dry and keep their shape. Was an experiment that totally worked! Regular felt also works like a charm though.
