Sweetbriar Rose

My card today uses a single stamp that I think often gets overlooked in the Annual Catalog, Sweetbriar Rose.  It’s a single stamp and is wood mounted.

I enjoy the look of a watercolored image but I have a really difficult time with an aqua painter and reinkers.  I bought some Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens (these are not carried by Stampin’ Up!) some time ago and finally had a chance to give them a try with this stamp.  Using watercolor paper, I stamped  with Versamark and then used white embossing powder.  The pens were very easy to work with and I’m looking forward to coloring with them again!

The base of my card is Whisper White and my watercolored flower is mounted on Melon Mambo.  My sentiment is from the set One Big Meaning. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop my flower up.

My mom is having knee replacement surgery this morning.  We will be spending the day at the hospital and when she can come home in a few days, I’ll be taking care of her.  If I get a little behind in my posts this week, that’s why.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Stenciled Leaf

Stenciled LeafIsn’t it fun when you can find a different way to use a product?  Well this card is it! Using my Leaflets Framelits, I made a stencil!

Leaf Stencil

Using a piece of Thick Whisper White, I created my stencil.  I felt that the thicker cardstock would hold up better once I started sponging.  Using my Stamping Sponges, I sponged Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry inside the stencil.  The sponge left some streaks on the leaf but I really like that effect.   I also sponged around the edges with Cajun Craze but I used a sponge dauber. I added a bow near the stem using two pieces of Linen Thread.  My sentiment was stamped with Early Espresso using the stamp set One Big Meaning.

This card was really fun to make!  Pull out your Framelits and give it a try!
