I took this card from the “Impressions” Magazine we get each month if you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. It is packed with heaps of fun ideas to use.
Rosette # 2
I actually CASEd everything on the card, although from memory, I don’t think it had Pearls, as I added these afterwards. It was such a stricking card and along with the colours & stamp set, thought it perfect to teach Rosettes at one of my Sunday Classes too.
Our challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations proved a lot harder for me than I thought it would. I had an idea in my mind from the first time I saw the sketch, but when it come to creating it, well that idea went out the window & I ended up just winging this one.
The challenge was brought to us by Kris in the way of the sketch & using current “In Colours“
Measurements – Base Card – Whisper White – 8 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ or 21cm x 15cm Layer 1 – Wisteria Wonder – 5 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 10cm Layer 2 – Whisper White – 5 5/8″ x 1 7/8″ or 14.5cm x 5cm Layer 3 – DSP – 5 5/8″ x 2 1/8″ or 14.5cm x 5.5cm
I randomly stamped an image from Delicate Doilies using both Wisteria Wonder & Blusing Bride Inks.
I adhered the piece of DSP to the RHS piece of Wisteria Wonder Cardstock & then the stamped piece of Whisper White Cardstock using Snail Adhesive. This piece overlapped the piece of DSP a little so that I wouldn’t have a space down the middle.
Ribbon was adhered along the bottom part of the Cardstock using Snail Adhesive, tucked the ends under & tied a bow.
I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock with Wisteria Wonder Ink, punched out with the Modern Label Punch, applied 2 small Basic Pearls, one each side, added a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals & adhered to the bottom RHS side of the card.
The whole piece was adhered to the Base Card – Whisper White with Snail Adhesive.
For my centre piece, I stamped the image 3 times onto a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock, and once onto another piece. The last piece was punched using the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch. I realised that I don’t use this punch nearly enough! This large punched piece was adhered to the card with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.
With the 3 stamped images, I cut around them at different areas of the stamp. I did confuse myself a little here as I wasn’t too sure where I was going, but the idea had been in my head since seeing this stamp set & finally got to do it!
The 3 images were then layered on top of each other using Stamping Deimensionals. I applied a Basic Pearl to the centre to finish it off.
I love the Ruffled Ribbon from Stampin’ Up! Another item I don’t use enough of.
I’m really happy with the card & the soft look it has. I think this stamp set calls for a soft delicate look.

I’ve finally managed to play with a new stamp set. Mind you, this is one of the sets I pre-ordered prior to the new Catalogue coming out! I loved this set from the moment I saw it, but have had a bit of a hard time creating with it.

I repeated the above step for the front of the card, including the embossing. I stamped my greeting twice onto a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock with Lucky Limeade & Island Indigo Inks. I adhered the Lucky Limeade greeting to a piece of Pool Party Cardstock with SU Dimensionals. This piece had been punched using my 2 1/2″ Scallop Circle Punch. I punched the centre out of the Island Indigio greeting with my 1″ Circle Punch & adhered this to the centre of the Lucky Limeade greeting with SU Dimensionals.
I again randomly applied Basic Rhinestones to the stamped images & put dots around the scallop circle with my White Gel Pen.
Don;t you just love the names SU call their Cardstock & Inks, especially the In Colours – they always have such catchy names.
