Hello there and thank you for dropping in! With the rainy and dreary weather we've been having these last few days, I am happy to add a little bit of Spring to your day - even if in card form!
Today's card is really lovely and does just that. How sweet is this lovely rose card? It just screams Spring with both the imagery and colours. Even more exciting, it that is comes from a new set, To A Wild Rose, which will be part of the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue starting on June 4th.
Want your own copy of the new catalogue? Then please get in touch and I'd be happy to send you one!
This set is a three-set stamp set, meaning you stamp three separate images (layers) to create on full image. This allows you to really see the texture of each stamp and allows you to play around with a magnitude of colours. Next up for me will be blue roses as those are my favourite!
For this card though, I went with a vibrant red/pink. Details are below.
Details, Tips, and Tricks:
Layer 1 (Rose Outline) - Stamped in Rich Razzleberry
Layer 2 (Full Rose Stamp) - Stamped in Melon Mambo
Layer 3 (Rose Detail Stamp) - Stamped in Lovely Lipstick
For the leaves, I used one colour only, which is Garden Green. The leaves outline is stamped fully using Garden Green; the second layer (fuller leaves stamp) is stamped off with Garden Green; and they top layer (the detailed leaves stamp), is semi-stamped off so I could get a mixture of light and dark texture.
The sentiment is stamped using Tuxedo Black Momento Ink.
This card requires use of the Masking Technique. You will need to create two 'masks' in order to stamp your leaves. On a scrap piece of Whipser White paper, stamp two images using the outline of the rose. Cut them out and use them as a mask to prevent any of the leaves from stamping on your roses. This means you will cover your stamped roses before stamping your leaves to prevent your roses from being stamped on. Please see the photo's below as an example.
One thing I will mention is that if you haven't done any layered stamping before, is that while it can be tricky to get the hang of, once you line up your images correctly and practice a few times, you'll be good to go! Just keep practicing - you can do this!
Also for this stamp set, I did find that I had to press firmly in order to get the full rose textures, so don't be afraid of using some muscle with this one. You might just have to play around with how much pressure you apply before getting it just right. :)
This is a beautiful set and I just know you'll love it. As I said, it will be available on June 4th in my online Canadian Stampin' Up! store. I would be so pleased to have you as one of my customers (or even on my team)!
