Rose Heart (posted by Shirley)

Hello everyone !   I hope you are doing well and still enjoying the holiday season.   It's snowing here in Ontario, Canada and I'm enjoying looking at the winter wonderland from my craft room, very pretty !

I'm excited with all the new designs that have just been released !     I have a card today using January's Stamp of Month set -  Rose & Thistle.   Again the creative possibilities with these beautiful & elegant designs are endless.  This set will certainly will make lovely Valentine, Wedding or Anniversary cards & more.  

I created the background with watercolour paints spritzed with water to blend.     The Flower Fragment from the Textured Fragment set was stamped with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink.   You Inspire Me is from the Words of Inspiration set that is one of the wonderful word sets currently on special.     I stamped the Rose Heart from the Rose & Thistle set separately on white card stock, coloured with Prisma Pencils, cut out and adhered as shown.    I also added a little glitter that is hard to see in the photo.

Here is another look at the gorgeous Roses & Thistle set

Thanks for your visit & stayed tuned for beautiful artwork with the new designs from my talented team mates !

Wishing you a happy, healthy & creative 2013 !


  1. A lovely combination of colours & I love the way you created the background (might there be a tutorial sometime???) & how the Textured Fragment has blended with the watercolours so well whilst retaining its distinctness. The coloured mats really do enhance the whole superbly.

  4. Die Karte ist einfach zauberhaft!!! Die neuen Stempel sehen Klasse aus. Ich muss mal schauen, wo ich sie mir in Deutschland kaufen kann.

    Ich wünsche dem ganzen Team nun einen guten Rutsch und für´s neue Jahr Gesundheit, Glück und viele creative Ideen.
    Liebe Grüße Martina
