Roses everywhere….

Hi once again. I have a couple of cards to share today using the same stamp set – but different layouts. The reason I made two cards is because I absolutely loved these roses once I started stamping them, and I used a variation of the template technique that I saw Jennifer McGuire do a few years ago.

I first used the roses die cuts to cut into a piece of white card, then die cut loads of the rose shapes. I then placed the template in my Misti, and stamped the base layer of colour onto every rose die cut, then swapped to the second layer, and stamped them all again – and so on. I did the same with all the leaves.

I made lots of roses – but used them all on my two cards. The first card is using the colours from the current challenge at Color Throwdown:

And this second card using the left-over red roses for another look, and another sentiment:

I didn’t realise how many rose stamp sets I owned – until I was putting everything into the Color My Life app – I have quite a few! My favourites are the layering stamps from Altenew, as they give such a realistic and vibrant look – and using these colours really made the detail stand out, I think so anyway.

One of the bonuses of creating two cards into one session, is that I can enter different challenges for each of the cards. I seem to be on a crafting weekend marathon – and putting my stash into this cataloging app has reminded me what I have, what I haven’t actually used yet (!!!) – and what I probably won’t ever use. I feel some de-stash selling coming on……

The first card will be entered into the following challenges:
