Yellow Beauty Rose

Hi there,

I couldn’t wait to get Altenew’s new Build-a-Flower Rose Set.  I ordered it as soon as it came out.  I’ve had Altenew’s Vintage Roses Set for a long time.  They, too, are layering stamps.  I don’t use them often because I find layering stamps to be a challenge to get them aligned.  But I couldn’t resist this large rose.  It, as well, was a challenge for me to get layers 5 and 6 lined up properly, but I do want to make more cards with this beautiful stamp set.


This wonderful card can be used for a number of different occasions.  It is suitable for Get Well, Sympathy, Anniversary, Birthday, Mother’s Day and even a Wedding card.  Just change the sentiment (or not, since Thinking of You works) on the front and you’re all set.  I used it as a sympathy card for my best friend who lost her brother. 

The set has six stamps that make up the layers of one rose.  A different color ink is used for each layer.  Likewise, the bough of leaves is made with four stamps layered using four different color inks.

I hope you got something out of this post, and it helps you with color layering.  I love it when a company such as Altenew has ink pad sets that coordinate.  It makes it so much easier for the crafter to have ink colors that have been tested or even formulated to go together. 

Even if you don’t have this rose stamp set, give color layering a try.  It is exciting to see the results of the stamping when you get it right.  It does take practice.  However, the practice is fun.  Sometimes, I spend my whole crafting time practicing stamp layering.  After I get accustomed to the stamps, and my layers start turning out as they should, I begin using my good cardstock in case I get a good image.  If so, I can use it on a card.  

Best wishes with your stamp layering,

Tricia Ann
