I’m back on the blog this week. Firstly Happy Easter!, Hope you have a great break and who wouldn’t in this lovely sunshine? Makes a change for a bank holiday doesn’t it?!
This week I’ve decided to go with something a little bit different, as you may have noticed my go to style is clean and simple but sometimes it’s nice to go a little rogue. So I’m using patterned papers. Now papers like this used to be my absolute passion and I have pads and pads of them but they hardly ever see the light of day these days. So I dusted them off and had a little play.
So what do you need to recreate this card:
Thirsty Brush & Co Vintage Rose stamp and die set
2 sheets 6” x 6” coordinating patterned papers
Versafine Onyx Black ink pad
Anna Marie designs Mont Blanc cardstock
Anna Marie designs Mont Blanc 7” x 7” card blank
Ok let’s get started then:
1. Select the piece of patterned paper for the base and stamp the Vintage rose using the black ink. Repeat the process on the second piece of patterned paper. And die cut both flowers. Put the waste of the base paper to one side for later.
2. Fussy cut the rose part of the stamp from the second pattered paper and layer on top of the rose of the base pattered rose.
3. Die cut 4 of the roses from the white card and layer them together, as an alternative you could use one layer and use foam pads to get the dimension but I find using layers of card gives a more stable and professional finish.
4. Layer the patterned rose onto the white card roses.
5. Now retrieve the waste for the base paper die cut and stamp your sentiment.
6. Attach the base patterned paper to the card blank.
7. Finally attached your patterned layered rose back into the hole on the base card.
Hope you have a go at this, it’s really quick and simple but can give a really dramatic effect with the right paper combinations.
