Welcome to another week of Make It Monday!
I have been loving playing with the Picture Perfect stamp set recently, and have a few cards to share with you using this stamp set over the next week or so. I am so pleased that this stamp set is in our new Annual catalogue too. (I do have a few spare catalogues, let me know if you want one!)
How pretty is this rose? Little known fact about me, one of my middle names is Rose – I rebelled against it for a LONG time, but these days I love it and really embrace the Rose in my name. James went through a period a few years ago of buying me heaps of Roses (flower not chocolates, although he has bought me plenty of those too!) but recently I haven’t had any flowers, maybe I should send him this blog post as I reminder!
Back to the stamping …. These roses look really complex, but are super simple to stamp. They are a 3 layer stamped image, which means that there are 3 stamps stamped one on top of the other, in different colours to create the full flower. The leaves are the formed in the same way. You can see exactly how to stamp these in the video tutorial below
I adore this colour combination, Rose Red and Crumb Cake. The roses are stamped in Blushing Bride and Rose Red, while the leaves are a combination of Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive.
I arranged the flowers before I stuck everything down, I do this a lot when I’ve fussy or die cut elements, just to check my composition works. I found that this card was missing something, Stampin’ Up! have some great stamp sets for this event, but Gorgeous Grunge is my favourite! So I added some Crumb Cake spatter using Gorgeous Grunge, and that was the card complete!
