Innovative Stamp Creations New Release -- Day 4

(If you are looking for my CCEE Challenge card or my Stampin B's Challenge Card, please go to the previous post.  Of course, you could take a moment to look at this one too!!)

Today we are reviewing the new release from Innovative Stamp Creations.

The sets being released

Nature's Silhouettes III
Sketch of Roses III

This card used Sketch of Roses III.  On the mid green panel you will see the large 'backgrounder-type' stamp included in the set.  I stamped it in black on green cardstock, and then used a green Copic marker to color in some of the fern in the lower right corner of that panel.  I then matted it in black, did some paper piercing, and added a Martha Stewart punched border.  I again used the large rose image from the set, stamping it three times and layering the flower for added dimension.  I dry embossed the pink back panel with a Sizzix embossing folder, and then added a ribbon and bow.

On this card I used Nature's Silhouettes III and Ledger.  I'm not so sure I could even explain the creative process on this just kind of took over and created itself.  It is not my 'comfort' style, but I must say I do love the result.........especially that fabulous image.....such a fun and fabulous set.  You are going to want these!!!!

Now...take yourself on a journey of creativity and visit the following.....

Beautiful, beautiful work on your roses card! I love how you stamped the backgrounder stamp onto your green cardstock, thereby creating your own beautiful designer paper! So elegant and lovely.

I really like all the different elements you used on the ledger card. It may have been out of your comfort zone, but you appear to be a pro at it. I love all the angled pieces, the colors, the pretty ribbon, the ticket # thingie....all of it!
