I used the Stampin’ Up! Rose Wonder stamp set and matching Rose Garden Thinlits Dies from the upcoming 2016 Occasions Catalog to create my card to share today.
My card design was inspired by the Global Design Project #GDP014. I had to move the sentiment up just a bit…it worked better with the rose image a little higher up. 🙂
I started by stamping the image from the Rose Wonder photopolymer stamp set (available Jan 5) in VersaMark Ink on a panel of watercolor paper. I sprinkled the image with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.
I used my Aqua Painter and a little Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz ink to watercolor the flower and leaf images. Then I stamped the outline image from the Rose Wonder stamp set in Pear Pizzazz ink on a separate watercolor panel and I used my Aqua Painter to add a little more color to the inside of the image.
I let the images dry completely (used my heat tool to speed that process up a bit), then stamped the sentiment in Blushing Bride ink on the Pear Pizzazz image. I cut that image out with the Rose Garden Thinlits die (available Jan 5), adhered it to the larger watercolor panel with Fast Fuse Adhesive, trimmed the excess off then adhered the watercolor panel to a panel of Pear Pizzazz card stock with Fast Fuse Adhesive.
I wrapped a strand of Blushing Bride Satin Ribbon (from the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit – available Jan 5) around the layered panel, adhering it with SNAIL, the I added a length of Venetian Crochet Trim over it, using tape to adhere it on the back of the panel. I adhered the layered panel to a Blushing Bride card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then added a Blushing Bride Enamel Glitter Dot from the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit under the sentiment.
I inked the image from the Rose Wonder stamp set in Blushing Bride ink, stamped it off once, then stamped it on a Very Vanilla panel inside the card.
