I have continued my small collection of Cottage Rose cards this week and made you a different take on last weeks layout.

Well this was another fun and quick card to make using the Cottage Rose stamp set.

I stamped the large Rose image on Basic White and then took out the Scalloped Contour Dies and cut out the image for the focal point of the card.

On another layer of Basic white I used the blending brushes and some Bermuda Bay ink and blended some ink just in the area around where the Cottage rose layer would be to highlight it.

Then I got out the trusty Stampin' Blends and coloured the rose, first with dark So Saffron

Then with light and Dark Bermuda Bay.

A little Light and Dark Soft Sea Foam for the leaves.

And for something a little different I used the colour lifter to add a little light bouncing off the petals

This white crinkle seam binding is the best for colouring with your Stampin' Blend so I did just that with the Dark Bermuda Bay.

Tied it around the middle of my blended brush layer and adhered it to the card base of Bermuda bay.      

I popped the front layer up on some dimensionals but before that I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Rose stamp set. Bit hard to do once you put on the dimensionals. No I did not try after putting on the dimensionals! 😂

The card is now complete or you can add some bling. I added some polished dots which are retiring next week so get in quick if you want them.

I'm really enjoying your Cottage Rose projects, Sharon. You've coloured your beautifully and the way you've used the colour lifter gives a wonderful effect. So glad you remembered to stamp BEFORE adding the dimensionals!!!


So pretty, Sharon. I just love that scalloped rectangle die, and it's the perfect choice for the main panel on your card. I may be guilty of trying to stamp on a piece of card that I've already added dimensionals to (no good!!). Great tip, not to, ha ha. Your card is lovely. x

Haha, I learnt my lesson a few weeks ago to remember to stamp before adding Dimensionals! Your card is so pretty - I really love the Bermuda Bay halo behind the focal panel.

Beautiful card Sharon, I love the Bermuda Bay shadow behind the center piece and your coloured ribbon.

Rosa Leyden said...

Love your cropped rose image Sharon and the colouring is just lovely using all those blends.

Andrea said...

A beautiful card Sharon. I so love your colouring of the flower - gorgeous and delightful with the highlights. The blending behind the scalloped panel. Xxx

I saw your card and I was like “Where’d you get that Bermuda Bay ribbon from?!?” Thank you for sharing how you did that, I’ll pop some of that ribbon into my next order! I have also be eyeing that cottage rose stamp set off too, so that may end up slipping into the order too, haha

Diane Furniss said...

Beautiful Sharon, I'm really starting to warm to the cottage rose bundle now and you have helped that along.

Kate Morgan said...

Oh, I just love that blended glow of Bermuda Bay popping out from behind your feature panel, Sharon. Your colouring is beautifully done too!

Rachel Palmieri said...

Beautiful cottage rose card, the blending behind the stamped panel sets it off a treat.

Another beautiful Cottage Rose card Sharon. I especially love the use of the blending brushes to create the soft background.
