Sunday Sample: All Occasion Roses

Hi Stampers,

I want to show you a card of roses I made the other day that can be used for many occasions.  Whether you need a sympathy card, thinking of you, get well, happy anniversary, Valentine’s Day or even happy birthday, this card will do  Just use the sentiment of your choice.  The sentiment stamped on my card comes with this new lovely stamp set, Watercolor Roses, from Strawberry Jude Stamps.

When I got out my supplies to make a card, I had in mind to make a card with one rose, or at the most three roses.  It was so much fun seeing a rose come together as I used one stamp layered on top of another with different colored inks, that I kept on stamping!  Here’s the stamp set I used. 

 

Click on the stamp set to link to Strawberry Jude Stamps.  5     I really like the other sentiment that is in the set that says, “You are in our thoughts and prayers.”  The card here is easy to follow just by looking at it, so I’ll basically just tell you the supplies I used.

FRONT PANEL

  • 80# Neenah Solar White Cardstock, cut to 5 x 3.75 inches 
  • Strawberry Jude Stamps Watercolor Roses Stamp Set
  • MISTI Stamping Tool – I like to re-stamp until I get the impression I want.  Use an acrylic block instead if you wish.
  • Inkadinkadoo Masking Paper – Stamp the bottom rose layer a couple of times on the masking paper and cut them out.  Use these to cover roses when your stamping overlaps a rose or leaf.
  • Scissors

Stamp directly onto the front card panel.

  • Hero Arts Ink Pad, Bubble Gum – rose – bottom layer 1 – The stamps are numbered.  Woohoo!
  • Wplus9 Ink Pad, Sweet Gelato – rose – layer 2
  • Hero Arts Ink Pad, Raspberry Jam – rose – layer 3
  • Simon Says Stamp Ink Pad, Green Leaf – leaves
  • Black Marker – Go around roses and leaves.
  • Uni-ball Signo White Gel Pen – Go around rose petals.  Make dots on leaves.

 

You can use any little heart stamp you have to stamp directly on the front card panel.   I used the heart from this stamp set.  Click on stamp set to link to the stamp site.  99cc54_32c6ebac5ee64ab5aa2f17f212be0ae4

MIDDLE PANEL

  • 65# Recollections Black Cardstock from Michael’s Craft Store, cut to 5.25 x 4 inches
  • Scrapbook Adhesives E-Z Runner Tape to adhere to front panel and card base.

 

CARD BASE

This is a top-folding 5.5 x 4.25 card.

Practice stamping and layering the roses on scrap paper before you start your card.  Try out the different color ink pads you have before purchasing more.  You may have three colors that blend together very well to make pretty roses.  Thank you for coming to my blog spot.  I hope you will come again.

Have fun stamping!
