Almost one layer card with Roses


Hi everyone, Heidi here on the blog! Today I have this easy and fun roses card for you all:

I started this card by stamping the roses from the awesome Kennedy Grace Creations “Splendid Roses” stamp set onto Cornwall Aquarel paper (Grain Fin, bright white) after die cutting a stitched rectangle with one of my nesting dies. For stamping I used Versafine “Onyx Black” ink and my MISTI stamping tool (this aquarel paper is fairly smooth but to get even black lines I needed to ink up my stamp several times).

Next I started colouring the image with my Gansai Tambi 36 watercolour set, water and a regular brush. I used the following colours:  33 / 31 / 53 and 58. After all the watercolouring was dry I created some lighter accents with a white Uni-Ball Signo pen.

Then I started working on the background: I created a nice damask background with a foam applicator tool, Distress Ink in the colour “Weathered Wood” and a stencil from Scrapberry’s called “Damascus”, going lighter towards the edges of the rectangle panel. I also mixed the same colour Distress ink with some water, applying it with the same brush, making the edges around the roses darker to create the illusion that the roses are in front of the damask background. I adhered this panel to a slightly larger matching green die cut rectangle panel with liquid glue after edging the green panel with some Distress ink in the colour “Mowed Lawn”.


For the sentiment I stamped one of the sentiments from the Kennedy Grace Creations stamp set called “Beautiful Blooms - Sweet Rose” onto some black card stock with Versamark ink and I heat embossed with Ranger “White” Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Next I die cut the sentiment with the smallest die in the Lawn Fawn “Everyday Sentiment Banners” die set and adhered the banner to the panel with the roses with Ranger medium matte, folding it to the back on the right hand side and adhering it to the back with regular tape.Then I adhered the combined rectangle panels to a white linen textured card base with one millimetre thick foam tape. 

I finished this card with some of the gorgeous Kennedy Grace Creations “Moonbeams” sequins (adhered with Ranger medium matte).

And that’s it for today, I hope you enjoyed!

Heartfelt Thanks

Hello everyone!! It's Berina here today with a Thank you card for you.


This looks like a triple stamping, but I used only 1 panel of colored images. I'll walk you through the steps. I took a piece of white cardstock of size 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" and stamped the sentiment from the Friendship Blessings stamp set in the center and stamped the flowers repeatedly around the sentiment. I colored the images with Copic markers. With a T-ruler and pencil, I drew rectangles where I wanted to cut and used my paper trimmer to cut. I did the same with a black cardstock panel of size 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and used it to matte all the pieces of image panel. Then I adhered the 3 pieces adhered on to each other with foam tape to give some dimension. I added some Nuvo drops in color English Mustard.


I really love how this has turned out. I hope you will give it a try.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.

Sweet Birthday

Hello everyone! First of all, wishing you all a very happy new year! It's Berina here today, sharing a beautiful and sweet card using the tic tac toe board for January!


I used the diagonal from the board - Die Cut, Embossing and Flowers. I decided to use the Splendid Roses for the flowers. I stamped the floral image using Memento black ink and colored the flowers with Copic markers. I used V09, V17, V15 and V12 for the flowers and G99, YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for the leaves. I loved coloring these flowers. I cut the panel into 4" x 5 1/4". For the sentiment, I decided to go with the "Wishing you a sweet birthday" from the same stamp set. I gold embossed the sentiment and die cut it with a small oval. I colored the edges of the die cut with V15. I took a top folding A2 cardbase and colored the edges of the front with V15. I adhered the image panel on to the card base with glue and attached the sentiment panel with foam tape. I love how this card has turned ou…
