To A Wild Rose Split Lace Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; first off let me say Happy Valentine's Day.  I wanted to share with you a super cute card that I made a few months ago using the To A Wild Rose Bundle and the Stitched Lace Die.  I love the sentiments and the layering images of the To a Wild Rose Stamp Set so when I designed this card I knew I wanted to use this stamp set and I wanted to do a split card base, but the question was what to do the split with.  I decided to use the Stitched Lace Die because I could do a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of cardstock and cut it down and get three pieces from it.  Here's a look at my card.


I used my Stamparatus to stamp all my roses and leaves.   I find it easier to use my Stamparatus to get perfectly layered images each time with this layering stamp set.  I stamp each layer with the lightest color first and then the darker color.  For the rose I used Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo inks.  For the leaves I used Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive Inks.  I used Tuxedo Black to stamp the outline; which by the way I usually stamp first because I find it easier to line the layering stamps up.

For the center of the rose I stamped it in So Saffron ink.  Once I had everything stamped it was time to cut everything out with the matching dies.  I then used the Stitched Lace Die and ran it through my die cutting machine with a piece of whisper white cardstock.  Once I had everything done I cut them into strips (1 1/2 x 4 1/4").  I then cut off a 1/2" strip from the bottom of the card base, and then cut off another inch.  I needed the 1/2" strip to replace at the bottom of the die cut strip.


After cutting everything apart it was time to put it back together.  I added the strips of the lace with a little liquid glue and then did the same with the strips of Flirty Flamingo Cardstock over where I added the lace piece.  I also repeated this process on the back inside of the card this added stability to the reassembled card base place hides the ugly surgery we did to this card.  I added a very thin strip of Melon Mambo cardstock to add a little interest to the card.   I then added the die cut rose and leaf to the top section letting it overlap the lace just a little.  I then stamped my sentiment in Tuxedo Black ink to finish my card.

Thanks for dropping by I hope you give this technique a try.  You will love doing a little surgery on your cards to create a very dramatic look with out to much work.  If you need any of the supplies I used to you can pick them up in my online store by clicking on the item in the Stampin' Up!

Hello Floral Card-To A Wild Rose

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a card that I made yesterday using the To A Wild Rose Stamp Set and some of my Stampin' Blends.  To A Wild Rose is a great layering stamp set that actually is a Million Dollar Sales Achiever Set that is currently in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  I love this card that I created it just makes me happy.  Here's a look at my card.

For my card today I stamped the outline of the rose from the stamp set three times using Tuxedo black ink and the leaves cluster three times and a couple other times so that I could have some extra leaves.  Once the ink dried I started the coloring process.  All the leaves where colored with Soft Suede light & dark Stampin' Blends.  I then colored the flowers next.  For the lighter pink flower I colored with my Flirty Flamingo and Lovely Lipstick combo blends.  The darkest areas were done with the Dark Lovely Lipstick and blended out until I got to the lightest area.
The two darkest roses were colored with just the Lovely Lipstick light and dark blends.  Once I had everything colored I colored in the centers of the roses with my dark Daffodil Delight.  I then took a white gel pen and added some little white dots to the centers.
Once all the coloring was done it was time to use the matching dies to cut out the roses and leaves.  The leaves that I stamped that was just the the single leaf I cut out with my paper snips.  I laid out my arrangement onto the card and then used press and seal to hold it into place while I worked on my card base.
I used the Decorative Mask Stencils and did a little ink blending in Flirty Flamingo ink on the area that the flowers were going to be at.  I then flicked on some Flirty Flamingo and Lovely Lipstick ink.  Once the ink had dried I added a little liquid glue behind the leaves and flowers that was facing up on the press and seal.  I then placed the cluster of flowers (still on the press and seal) onto the card base.  I then pulled the press and seal back up with the remaining flower and a couple leaves up and added a few Stampin' Dimensionals behind them.  I then placed that flower and leaf back onto the arrangement.
I stamped my sentiment in Tuxedo Black ink in the bottom third of the card base.  I then added a few sequins to finish off the arrangement.  I trimmed off the leaves that were over hanging off the card.
Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you have enjoyed my little card for today.

Happy Stampin'
