Hi friends, TGIF! You may remember a few releases ago we released this super fun and whimsical stamp & die set entitled, Roses for You. One of the great things about this stamp set is how versatile it is! Please welcome back Suzy Plantamura as a guest on our blog to share 6 unique ways to use this great set! Enjoy!
I recently started a blog series called “one stamp, five ways”. Twice a week I highlight one stamp set and show five or more projects using it. I want to motivate and inspire others to get more use out of their stamp sets and think of multiple ways to use them. Today I will be sharing six projects using the “Roses For You” stamp set.
I painted stripes with watercolors for the background of this card. I stamped the heart in black ink and painted it in with watercolors. I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on a watercolored banner.
For the background of this card, I embossed the little hearts with clear embossing powder on a piece of watercolor paper. I then lightly painted over them with red watercolor. I stamped six of the hearts in the Roses For You set and colored them with Copic markers. I attached the “I love you” stamps to a stitched banner and inserted that through the two outside hearts. I finished it with a small watercolored rose.
This was my most time consuming card. I stamped the flowers and leaves on watercolor paper using Tattered Rose Distress Ink so I could paint them with no lines showing. I painted them all with Distress Inks and then painted the background. After it was all dry, I added some black outlines with a fine tip black marker. I added a sentiment from the stamp set on a banner.
I stamped and embossed the roses and leaves in a circle pattern with white embossing powder on watercolor paper. I then painted them all in and added some watercolor around the edges as well. I stamped the sentiment on a stitched banner for the bottom of the card.
I stamped and die-cut the rose heart and two other roses and painted them all with watercolors. I used a black fine tip marker to add details to the heart shape. I attached the word love and the flowers and heart to a tag.
I love this stamp set so much, I wanted to create some art for my wall with it. I first drew a letter P (for my last name) in pencil and then I stamped the flowers and leaves to fill it in. I added the two small circles to fill in all of the open spaces. I painted all of them in with watercolors. You could do this same technique with any letter of the alphabet.
I have several more projects using this stamp set on my blog today as well. It is definitely one of my all time favorite and most used stamp sets!
