Glittered Roses!

 My new glittered rose cuff is a showstopper!
 This is day three of my week of posts dedicated to Stampendous! products and a collaboration with Jewelry Resin!
 The Stampendous design team all received Jewelry Resin and a number of other goodies to work with.
 To make my roses I used this baking pan.  It was originally created to make rose cupcakes.....but I use it in my jewelry studio instead!  Step One:  Make a batch of Jewelry resin and pour it into the rose mold to about 1/8 of an inch.  I do this so the the rose has a clear top when it comes out of the mold.  Remember, you are working upside down when you work in a mold...the bottom becomes the top.  I let the resin cure overnight.
 Step Two.  The next day I just added a generous portion of my Stampendous! glitters to the molds.
 No glue is needed in this case.  I then poured a good layer of Jewelry resin over the top of these glitter piles!  Now I leave the mold to cure for the full 48 hours recommended.
 The roses popped out easily.  I used a nail file to sand away any edges I did not need.
 Glitter Roses!  So easy to make and they sure look fabulous on my cuff!
