I started with a card base (Papertrey Ink Stampers Select cardstock) on which I had stamped the sentiment, from Papertrey’s anniversary set. (When Harriet (allycatcards) was here in June, she brought her PTI anniversary set. I stamped a couple card bases using the sympathy stamp.) I used a rose stamp from an Inkadinkado set, bending the stem quite a bit and the rose just a little bit before I put it on the acrylic block. I stamped it directly on the card base, and also twice on another piece of white cardstock. I colored all three images using Stampin’ Up! Old Olive and Cameo Coral markers. I cut out the flower from both extra stampings, and also the leaves. I mounted the cut-out pieces on Pop Dots and layered them. The rose has two layers popped up and so does the largest leaf. The other leaves have just one popped up layer.
We will be heading out of town later this morning for the funeral and will spend a few days with family. That means that every weekend in September we were out of town! Makes it kind of hard to get much stamping done. (Or housework!) Hopefully soon I will be able to share cards here more often again.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
