Mackintosh Roses (by Julie)

Hello, Julie here and I have two Mackintosh style cards to show you, so I will start by showing this DL card.

I have used both Mackintosh Windows and Mackintosh Beauty . I started by taking the Mackintosh Windows set and inking up the decorative face stamp with black Archival ink and stamping onto glossy card. I coloured with alcohol pens and then cut it out. The base card was stamped with the border from Mackintosh Beauty using a purple dye based ink and coloured with pink and purple Pan Pastel. Next I threaded some beads onto elastic cord and secured by tying a knot at the bottom so that the beads do not fall off. You may want to add a blob of clear drying glue for extra security. I then attached to the back of the stamped image with 3d foam pads before applying to the base card. The card was finished off with a sentiment from Amazing Mackintosh Words.

My second card has been created with two stamps from Mackintosh Windows. I started the card by colouring some stamping card with Antique Linen and Old Paper Distress inks and then stamped the decorative rose in a circle. No measuring was used so you may want to start with a bigger piece of card and then cutting to size after you have stamped. I filled around the circle with the large rose and then coloured with brush markers. Acrylic paint pens were dotted around the outside and the card was finished off with sentiments from Amazing Mackintosh Words.

Thank you for taking a peek and please call back tomorrow for some more design team inspiration.

  2. Absolutely stunning cards Julie, the first one is so elegant and stylish with those beautiful colours.
    Beautifully designed and coloured second card, love the wreath made from the McIntosh rose image, very creative, Kate x

  3. Two fabulous cards Julie using these pretty stamps. The DL card is a nice change and love the focal image with that lovely border. The ring of roses looks great and the splatters and distress ink background suits it perfectly. x

  4. Both lovely cards. Might give this a try as I've just bought some DL cards and I have one of the sets of stamps. Thank you Julie, beautiful inspiration.

  5. Both beautiful cards Julie and I love how the hanging beads echo the design of the stamp above in the first one. It adds an extra dimension to your already gorgeous card. Sandra x
