Stampin’ Up! Rose Wonder for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Rose Wonder stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create the card I am sharing with you today.  I was inspired by a card I saw in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog and knew I wanted to try it.  My challenge was to fit in the colors we are working with today!  

Color challenge for Happy Inkin' Thursday

I had no problem with the Old Olive and the Calypso Coral, but adding the Pool Party, well, I had to get a little creative!

Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder-Cardiology by Jari


I started with a panel of watercolor paper and did a water color wash in Pool Party ink using my Aqua Painter.  Next, I stamped the large rose image from Rose Wonder in Versa Mark ink onto a panel of Vellum card stock.  Then, I sprinkled it with White Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I pulled out my Old Olive and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Markers and colored in the rose on the back side of the Vellum.  Some parts were colored in darker than others, which gives it some dimension.  It takes a little while for the ink to dry, so if you try this, make sure you wait before adhering the vellum to anything.

While waiting for the water colored paper and vellum to dry, I stamped the sentiment, also from Rose Wonder, in Pool Party onto Whisper White.  The sentiment was die cut with a die from the Layering Ovals Framelits and matted with a little larger scalloped oval from the same collection of framelits.

Very carefully, I dotted small dots of liquid glue onto the back of the rose and leaves (along the white lines) and adhered it to the water colored panel.  If you’re not careful, the glue will show through and look glossy when dry.  The art panel was then adhered to a panel of Old Olive with liquid glue.  I cut a length of Pool Party Shimmer ribbon, notched either end and adhered it to the art panel with Tear & Tape Adhesive.  Next, I popped the art panel onto the Whisper White thick card stock with dimensionals, then added the sentiment ovals with dimensionals.  Three pearls were then added for some bling. 

A complete list of supplies and card stock cuts will be at the end of my post. 

Now, for more of the hop!  Enjoy!
