The Stamp Review Crew is hopping this week to bring you lots of ideas for using the stamp set Rose Wonder, found in the Annual Catalog. I hope you've hopped with us before but if not I'll tell you a little bit about us. We a group of international Satmpin' Up! Demonstrators who hop on the first and third Monday of each month. We all use the same stamp set each hop to bring you lots of inspiration for using it yourself. If you get lost along the way or want more information about us click the link above or the banner and you'll find everything you need to know.
If you didn't start with me you may have come from Betty Traciak's blog, Kitty Stamp. You've already been inspired by Betty, I'm sure!
I have a card to share with you today. I've said before that I love a stamp set with images and sentiments to create an entire card using one set and that's what I've done today. It's also fun to know that can mix either images or sentiments with other stamp sets too!
I chose Crumb Cake card stock and Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper as the setting for this card. Crumb Cake is one of my favorite card stocks and stamping the sentiment repeatedly in Versa Mark ink is a fun effect. I could have left it like that for a monotone look but kicked it up a bit by adding Clear Embossing Powder and heat setting it. Now it has a touch of shine. The flowers add the color and enhance the full panel of sentiments. The coordinating Rose Garden Dies were used to cut the leaves from Cucumber Crush card stock. Originally, I was going to cut the flowers from the dies too but decided I wanted solid images. The flowers were stamped and trimmed out with Paper Snips. They were stamped in Basic Black ink and the new Watercolor Pencils were used to color them before doing the cutting. Some little Enamel Dots were used as the centers of the flowers. Stampin' Dimensionals were used to attach them to vine of leaves. This was super fun to create.
Inside this card I used the die to cut out flowers with a solid stem of leaves. The leaves were stamped in Cucumber Crush ink and the Cucumber Crush Stampin' Write Marker was used to color them in for solid leaves. I need some sympathy cards in my stash and I'm happy with the way this turned out, both outside and inside!
Now you're ready to hop along to see what wonders Mickey Roberts has created to share with us this week at her blog Paper Creations. I hope you have a rosy day! - Dawn
