English Rose – Clearly Besotted


Hi there!  Today I am sharing this card made using the English Rose stamp set from Clearly Besotted. This is the first time that I have used vellum!  I really like the softness that vellum adds to a card so I thought it was about time to get some!   I used gold embossing powder for the greeting which is from Altenew’s Tulip set.  I also used some sequins, Memento inkpads in Angel Pink, Rose Bud and Rhubarb Stalk. The background paper is from MFT – Watercolor Wash, Brights.  And I used my MISTI 🙂


That’s all from me for this week.  Have a great weekend whatever you’re doing, take care – Karen 🙂

Altenew Tulips

Hello and a happy Thursday to you!  Today’s card has been made using Altenew’s Tulip set.  Now, I’m not the fastest stamper – especially when I’m using layering stamps! so considering that this is a 7×7 card, you might be able to imagine how long it took me to stamp the tulips!!   It took 45 stamps to complete the tulip border (5 different stamps for each of the 9 flowers).  I won’t say how long it took me, but it gave me a  bad back afterwards!  Anyway,  I really liked how it turned out – good job really!  I should explain that I have to craft standing  – hence the back pain!

To make this I also used: DP – Polka in the Meadow – Lawn Fawn, Striped ribbon and twine, Bella & Boo Enamel Dots, the MISTI, and the following Memento inkpads; Tuxedo Black, Bahama Blue, Summer Sky, Nautical Blue, Cottage Ivy, Bamboo Leaves, New Sprout, Sweet Plum, Lulu Lavender, Grape Jelly and also Altenew inks – Summer Afternoon and Red Sunset.
