Celebrating the Rose with Fun Techniques

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Well … we made it half way through the week and we are quickly heading into the weekend! I love Thursdays 🙂  The “technique” card I was going to show you today will be showcased tomorrow, so today I have 3 beautiful cards created with the Wild Rose stamp set ….

The first card…  “Blessed to Know You” card demonstrates the Three-step Stamping technique. I always begin with my “Line Image”, it helps me align the next two stamps.

My “True Friendship” card is simple yet shows two techniques on this card.  The first is creating your background which gives you nice depth … this is color on color (Basic Gray Cardstock with Basic Gray ink). Then second technique is sponging … With a sponge dauber I added color onto the image, then a touch of my Wink of Stella!

The third card, my “Hello” card features the “Coloring with Stampin’ Blends” technique … I find this technique so relaxing. Remember coloring as a child, yes, that feeling!

First, I chose my color pallet; Whisper White and Highland Heather. I stamped the rose image with the Momento ink and began to color it with the Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Duo. I begin by coloring a petal with the light marker, then add the dark marker at the part of the petal that is closest to the center and over the lines in the rose. Then I go back over the dark with the lighter marker to blend the colors … you can always add a little more dark again. I leave the edges of the petals as light as I can.

The center is colored with the Daffodil Delight Dark Stampin’ Marker and then the rose is die cut.  The leaves cut from Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  The lattice piece was cut in Whisper White and Highland Heather and then layered to create an added dimension to the card.  The white base was stamped with the “Hello” from the stamp set and then the entire piece was embossed using the “Subtle” Folder.

Have you fallen in love with this amazing bundle yet?  I find it so versatile and easy to use. How would you like these cards?

Hope your day is filled with beauty … pass it on.
