Today’s card project is a thank you card created by using the Rennie Roses stamp set from Altenew. 20 years ago, when I started scrapbooking, we called these cabbage roses. I loved them then and I love them now!
I started by stamping the images on some random 80lb white cardstock cut to A2 size. It is pretty low quality, but Altenew markers blend beautifully. I used Hero Arts black ink to stamp the images. I left the images in my MISTI. I came back after coloring them and used Hero Arts black embossing powder on them to add a little pop.
I did really basic coloring. I colored the entire floral portion of each flower using R206. I then used R400 for the darker shading and blended using R301. I colored these while sitting in the back yard and enjoyed every minute of it. It was 70 degrees that day and I had just gotten back from the Pinners Conference. It is snowing/sleeting and we have 40 MPH wind gusts. Gah! Moving on…I colored the leaves using G935, G825 and G915. I colored the leaves the same way, light to dark and blend with the medium shade. I then fussy cut out all of the images.
I grabbed another piece of 80lb cardstock and used Catherine Pooler’s Twighlight ink and lightly blended the background using a makeup brush from Amazon. I then stamped the sentiment on the card panel using Versafine black ink. I trimmed the panel down and attached it to a black card base.
I then glued down two of the roses and all of the leaves to the card panel. I popped up the front rose using 3M foam tape.
I added Nuvo Drops in Ebony Black for a finishing touch. I really like how this card turned out and it took about 45 minutes to create. If I had a plan, it would have gone faster.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have an amazing week!
