Beautiful Rose Cards with Heat Embossing and Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers


Hello friends. Meg here with some BEAUTIFUL and EASY floral, rose cards! This gorgeous card trio was created with the Kennedy Grace Creations stacked stitched rectangle dies, stacked stitched scalloped rectangle dies, Just a Rose clear stamps and/or Beautiful Blooms - Sweet Rose stamps.

Do you see how perfectly these rose stamps fit into our layering dies??? It's a perfect pair!

To start, I die-cut two stitched rectangles and one scalloped rectangle using our wafer thin die sets and Strathmore Bristol smooth paper. I then stamped the roses, inside the white Bristol panels, using VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink. I coated each image with clear embossing powder and heat set to a smooth, raised finish.

To color I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers without any water! They blend together alone like a dream! For the leaves (on all 3 cards) I used only 2 Zig markers; 053 Yellow Green and 047 May Green. See below for exact rose color combinations.


To color this two-toned Just a Rose stamped image I only used 3 markers! I used 051 Lemon Yellow, 050 Yellow and 021 Light Carmine.


For the yellow Just a Rose stamped image I used 051 Lemon Yellow, 050 Yellow and 052 Bright Yellow. 


The red rose was colored with the following Zig brush marker colors; 021 Light Carmine, 029 Geranium Red and 024 Wine Red. If you notice this rose is slightly different than the other two. This is the Beautiful Blooms - Sweet Rose stamp set.

All of these Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker colors blended like a dream! I colored all three of these images in less than 30 minutes!!!

The last step was adhering the colored panels to other black, die cut backgrounds then adding to a card base. The two die sets work so beautifully together and make designing a card so fast and easy!!! I highly recommend them!!!!

I hope everyone enjoyed my trio of roses today. Thank you so much for stopping by. Please leave me some love if you enjoyed this post!
