CARD DETAILS

I spotted these stamps at the Creativation show back in January and was very much impressed and fascinated by the concept. I made several almost identical cards using Stitched Roses stamp set.

I need to point out that I am making 4 bar cards and not A2 because this size is often deceiving, it might look like these are A2 cards and thus stamped elements look bigger than they really are. So this is just something to keep in mind. Images shown in this video are not going to look as big on an A2 size card.

Stitched Roses set is a bit difficult to align in a sense that you need to have perfect alignment for great results. I do recommend using a stamp positioner like MISTI just because it makes stamping these roses a much much easier task.

When you look at this stamp set it has the instructions for you right there on the sheet. There are letters and numbers. Numbers indicate which shade of ink needs to be used for that layer – a light, medium and dark. And letters indicate the layers to the same flower. So it’s pretty straightforward, although this stamp set does take a little bit of practice.

The way I like to stamp my images, the way I find it to be easiest for me – I like to start with the top most darkest layer. This way I am able to see much better though my stamp and align my medium and bottom layers much better.

I used Simon Says Stamp Lipstick Red (darkest), Hollyhock (medium) and Twirling Tutu (lightest) ink colors to stamp roses. For my leaves I picked Willow.

To create a sentiment for this card I used a Round Happy Birthday message from the Circle Sayings stamp set from Simon. This is an older set that I have re-discovered recently and I’m loving it for all sorts of cards.

I did some quick masking to stamp it and I used Simon’s Khaki ink color – I feel it’s a perfect match to kraft cardstock I used for the card base for my cards. I also stamped simple Happy Birthday sentiment in black ink onto kraft paper and foam mounted it onto my card over the roses.

You can change up the sentiments and make these cards for another occasion. I think this design would make a great Mother’s Day card and also fabulous Thank You or Miss You cards.

Lastly, I added a few dots using Nuvo Crystal Drops in Apple Green.
