Heartfelt Creations - Wrenhaven-n-Rosses Card

Hello! I have been working on a few sample cards for Heartfelt Creations and today I have a Mother's Day card to share with you. Mother's Day will be here before we know it!I love the stamped image on this card! The image is Wrenhaven 528G and the sentiment it Mini Message Cursive Set 1189S both from Heartfelt Creations. I started by stamping the image onto Pure Luxury Pure White cardstock by Gina K. Designs with brown ink and then I started to color the image with Copic markers. I colored the roses and then the leaves with the Copic markers as shown in the picture.Next I colored the lilacs using five different colors from a pale lavender to a blue with Copic markers.These are the colors I used for the birdhouse.In this next picture I used YR24 and E15 to color the roof. For the chimney I used YR24, E15 and just a little touch of R17. For the birds I used YR21, YR24, E15 and R17. To fill in the background I used Y00 and E000.After I had the image colored I wanted to diecut it using the Labels Ten S5-022 die template from Spellbinders™. I did the Reverse Stencil technique with the die template. To do this you just simply ink the inside of the template with a chalk or pigment ink and then run the paper and die template through the Wizard™ as usual to cut/emboss.I used Chestnut Roan ink from ClearSnap to do the Reverse Stencil and here is the result, a nice crisp colored edge.Next I want to share a little tip with you that I use for some of my sentiments. Here is the sentiment Happy Mother's Day the way it originally stamps. I wanted to use this sentiment on one of the Labels Eight S5-019 die template from Spellbinders™ but it wouldn't fit.Now here is the sentiment after I made two little cuts and this way it will fit the Labels Eight S5-019 die template. If you cut in straight lines you will still be able to line up the stamp perfectly and you can see this if you look back at the first picture of this stamp. Here you can see the sentiment on the Labels Eight S5-019 die template. I also did the Reverse Stencil technique on the label and I added one of the Fancy Tags S4-235 die templates from Spellbinders™. To add some dimension I used 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES™ By 3L. I also added some ribbon and buttons.
