Birthday Roses

Hello yet again. I have a card to share absolutely brimming full with roses:

I started by using a Stampin Up stencil and Cosmic Shimmer Texture Paste on a base layer, and whilst that was drying, I stamped and die cut the Altenew ‘Rosy Outlook’ images several times.

The sentiment is also from Altenew – forgetting that the ‘y‘ from ‘happy’ has a fault in it – so I took a black art liner pen and coloured the ‘fault’ in.

I played with the arrangement several times, and used 3D gel and my ‘go-to’ glue – the Tonic Deluxe adhesive.

Here is a close-up of the shimmer on the paste:

Hello there. I have another card to share, using the Altenew ‘Rosy Outlook’ stamp and die set:

I stamped the flowers using Altenew inks, but for the fourth layer of the large rose I heat embossed in gold. The leaves I stamped the first two layers in green, then heat embossed the third layer in gold too.

The sentiment is from a Stampin Up stamp set, again heat embossed in gold, then doing a little juggling and partial die-cutting, I managed to cut the length to size, adding a little ‘flag’ ending to it.

I used Altenew ‘Dotted Swirls Debossing cover die’ for the background, layered with some black card stock – and there we have it.
