This set is beautiful! But, through the projects I share with you today, I hope to show you just how versatile this set truly can be.
This rose is so gorgeously detailed and looks amazing all on it's own. So, here is a simple number that really lets this blossom stand alone and shine...Stamped the rose in Sweet Blush onto a strip of white cardstock. Then trimmed the rose along one side to create a unique border.
Layered the sentiment (in True Black) over the rose and then attached the strip to a Lemon Tart card base (which measures 5 1/2" X 3 1/2").
Finished it off with a couple ribbon tabs (Sweet Blush grosgrain & satin ribbon) and buttons.
This set if full of versatility! The flowers and leaves pictured above are all of the pieces used on the card below. I took this shot to show you just how versatile the images in this set are. The large open rose image from this set gives you the option to include yet another rose into your projects. By using the large rose image I was able to cut out two different roses! A larger open rose (cut from Pure Poppy cardstock) and a smaller open rose (cut from Terracotta Tile cardstock).
Once the pieces were cut, I stamped each rose and the rose bud in different background patterns. By using Versamark ink with Background Basics: Tin Type on the Pure Poppy rose, Background Basics: Text Style on the Terracotta Tile rose and Polka Dot Basics II on the rose bud. Then arranged them onto a kraft cardstock base and stamped a sentiment from the same Year Of Flowers: Roses set.
Embellished each rose with a few black rhinestones.
This rose looks perfectly pretty paper pieced as well! I am a huge fan of a gradient color schemes, I couldn't help but give it a try on this amazing rose image. So, I stamped and cut out layers from Sweet Blush, Melon Berry & Berry Sorbet cardstock and then layered them all together. I love how fun this rose turned out!
Check out those fun paper pieced leaves as well (used Spring Moss & Simply Chartreuse cardstock). Finished off the card with some black rhinestones and a sentiment from Friendship Jar. Here's a Tip: One of my favorite things to do with my tiny sentiment is to tuck them into tight corners or right next to a focal image.
These images are easy to color. I really mean it! If I can do it, then anyone can! Here's a tip: To make the coloring process a little easier, what I have done with this large rose is stamped it first onto colored cardstock (Lavender Moon) using Palette Noir ink and then colored and shaded using Copic Markers.
Another fun use for this set is to use the leaf image to crate a hand stamped pattern paper. For this card, I've stamped and heat embossed the leaves onto Simply Chartreuse cardstock. Then balanced out the yellow rose on top with a couple Lemon Tart buttons and stamped a sentiment from Delightful Dahlia.
