Picture Perfect Roses for Pal’s Blog Hop


Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for March 2016. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring Spring and Spring related projects. We hope you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

I have really been enjoying the Picture Perfect stamp set.  The starfish, Rose, and the hummingbird are all beautiful stamps.  I have enjoyed the layering  of stamps to achieve different results.  I had so much fun with the rose stamp (the other day) that I decided to try it again with a different red combination and using the same technique.  You can see it here.  I practiced several times before getting the stamping just right.  It really did help to stamp the Medium Color first.  Then stamp the light color.  (I did this to learn how exactly the stamp lines up! As the Light color can be kinda hard to see)    The colors used for the Roses are Real Red, Watermelon Wonder, and Blushing Bride.  This resulted in a deep rose that is amazing!   The leaves are Mint Macaron and Always Artichoke.   I paired this with Smokey Slate.


Here are the details:

  • The card base is Smokey Slate (my favorite) card stock cut at 5 1/2 inches and scored at 4 1/4 inches
  • The layers are Whisper White(5 1/4 by 4), Blushing Bride (2 3/4 by 4 3/4), and Smokey Slate (2 3/8 by 4 3/8)
  • On the Whisper White layer stamp the Brushstrokes stamp using Blushing Bride Ink
  • Using the Big Shot and the Elegant Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder emboss the Smokey Slate layer
  • Stamp the rose using Blushing Bride, Watermelon Wonder, and Real Red using  mask to give a layered look.
  • Stamp the leaves using Mint Macaron and Always Artichoke
  • Stamp “Just a Note” in Watermelon Wonder on Whisper White Card Stock.  Punch out with the Washi Label Punch.
