Stamp Simply Spring Release Blog Hop

Hello everyone and happy Friday!  Today, all of the designers from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store are participating in a Stamp Simply Spring Release Blog Hop.  I'm excited to share one of the New Stamp Simply Spring Release Stamp Sets and a Coordinating Die Set.  But before I get to my projects I want to share a video by Darsie Bruno.  Darsie, has a wonderful video showing all of the New Stamp Sets and Die Sets. She also shares some beautiful projects she created with the new stamp sets and dies.

So what do you think?  I love all of the projects Darsie shared!  Especially the lavender rose card and the tulip box card--those two are my favorites.  I love all of the new stamp sets!  They are filled with so many wonderful sentiments and verses.  Love the rose and tulips images too and the coordinating dies.  I think its fantastic how all of the stamp sets mix and match too.

Here is the card I designed using the New Thinking of You Rose SS-015 stamp set and the Rose SS-DIE002 coordinating die.  I stamped all of the roses onto a piece of Ranger Watercolor paper using VersaMark Ink and then I heat embossed all of the image with Ranger Super Fine White Embossing Powder.  I stamped and embossed another rose image on a separate piece of watercolor paper.  I did a very light watercolor using Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  For the rosebuds I used Worn Lipstick and Mustard Seed.  For the stem and leaves I used Cracked Pistachio.

I let some of the watercolor go outside of the embossing and then I add more water to have the colors fade out to white.

I used the coordinating die to die cut the rose that was on the separate piece of paper.  I stamped the sentiment on to a piece of Vellum using VersaMark Ink and then I heat embossed the sentiment using Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  I wrapped the vellum around the center of the watercolor piece and I taped it on the backside.  Then, I added  3D Foam Squares to the die cut rose and added that to the card front.  Next, I added a bow with some  May Arts - Metallic Gold String and a few Melissa Frances White Pearls.  For a little added sparkle and shine I added Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen and Ranger Glossy Accents to the die cut rose.

Here is a close up of the bottom half of the card.  You can click on all of the images to enlarge them and see more detail.

I added a white panel of paper on the inside of the card and I stamped the rose image with Spun Sugar Distress ink and then I heat embossed the sentiment in gold.

To finish off the card I added the watercolor panel to a pink A2 top folding card base.
