Romantic Roses (by Julie)

Hello crafty people. I have two romantic cards to share with you today.

My first card is made with the Harlequin Rose set. The centre panel is stamped with the smaller rose design that I inked up by applying brush marker direct to the stamp and then stamping onto the card. I masked off the stamped image before adding more roses. Don't worry about the ink drying before you are ready to stamp the design, a few deep breaths or "huffs" onto the stamp will reactivate the ink and you are good to stamp. The tassel border has been stamped into each corner. To get the distressed look I stamped the excess ink off onto scrap paper, before stamping onto the panel. The white base card was stamped with the small rose stamp as before, using Sepia Versafine ink and the centre panel was finished off with some sepia coloured lace ribbon underneath the stamped sentiment.

For my second card, the base card was coloured with Shaded Lilac Distress ink and stamped with the tassel border from Harlequin Rose. The leafy panel is the new Leafy Panel background stamp that I have coloured with brush markers along with the  rose which you can find on the rather wonderful Rose Stem Script  set and to finish off I added a sentiment from Words of Love.

Thanks for stopping by and please be sure to call back soon to see some more Design Team inspiration.

  1. Two very beautiful cards Julie, wonderfully coloured and designed, especially love the lilac one, Kate x

  2. Oh, these two romantic cards are both really lovely! Great designs, so elegant and feminine and fab stamps used!

  3. Two fabulous cards Julie using the Harlequin Rose set. I love both the backgrounds you have made and the toppers, the first with the pretty roses with the marker straight to stamp technique have turned out beautifully and love the colours, then the leafy trails with the Rose Script look so pretty over that repeated border on the second. x

  4. Lovely cards Julie. Thank you for sharing these.

  5. Both so beautiful ombined! A slight favorite in the second card...

  6. They are both lovely though I have to admit, when I saw the first one on Facebook earlier I thought I was seeing a photo of a battenburg cake!! ;) I really must wear my specs more!
