Innovative Stamp Creations New Release -- Day 1

Today the Creative Architects are showcasing the set called.....
Sketch of Roses III

Aren’t roses utterly breathtaking? This stamp line by Innovative Stamp Creations has a lovely background image approx. size 4 ½ x 5 which lends itself to some many different techniques. You’ll find this line quite versatile!  The delicate Roses are so easy to color-in with your fave medium of choice!   And...the design makes it easy for layering a 3-D Effect.


On this card I used the large rose image in the set.  (There is a smaller one as well.)  I actually stamped the rose image on a large piece of white cardstock.  I wanted my rose to be 'out of the box' so when using my Nestie to die cut the main panel, I first trimmed the leaves and part of the rose so I could leave it out of the die cutting process.  I then embossed the mail panel and added one of the sentiments from the set.  I then stamped the rose image two more times on cardstock.  I colored all three rose images.  Then I cut out two of the roses to create layering/3-D evvect on the rose.  I embossed the mid-green panel with  a Sizzix embossing folder.  I used a Marvy corner punch for the upper corner punchouts and a Martha Stewart punch for the lower border effect.  I did a bit of piercing on the upper panel, added some ribbon, and used a black marker to outline the die cut main panel and make it pop out from the back panel.  I added some rhinestone glitz to the lower border and just a touch to the upper corners.
Now...you are going to want to check out the work of the other Architects.  They are sure to dazzle you with their Rose creations.
