Card #2 using SOTM Rose Wonder

Hello Friends!

Can you believe that we received snow here in NJ today? In APRIL?? I am so ready for spring to be here 100% or better yet, skip straight into the summer! I do not enjoy the cold weather anymore. I would much rather have the sun shining!

For those of you who are new to my blog, let me tell you what I am doing. Each month I will be featuring one stamp set for the month. I will show you how to use these stamps in the way they were intended to be used as well as show you how to use them in ways you wouldn't think to use them. There will also be some giveaways and maybe even a tutorial or two. I will also show you how to mix and match two stamps sets together to make something beautiful :)

 Rose Wonder Photopolymer Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!  Rose Garden Thinlits Dies by Stampin' Up!
  Today I have  card #2 to share with
 you using the Rose Wonder Stamp Set.  The Rose Wonder stamp set comes from the Occasions catalogue and can be found on my website HERE.
I used some Whisper White cardstock ID#100730 for my card base cut to size 4 1/4" by 5 1/2". My next layer uses some Rose Red cardstock from the Love Blossoms Cardstock pack ID#140549 cut down to size 4" by 5 1/4". My next layer is not Stampin' Up, as I used some cold press watercolor paper by Canson cut down to size 3 3/4" by 5". I really wanted to use the large rose from this stamp set and see how it would look if watercolored. So I stamped it onto the watercolor paper using Basic Black Ink ID#140931.   Next, I used my Kuretake watercolors to do a nice wash of color onto the stamped rose and pulling some of the color out onto more of the paper. I really like the look. Next I stamped the sentiment also from the Rose Wonder stamp set in the lower right corner. To finish the card, I took my Basic Black ink and stamped it onto my craft mat, added my wet brush to make a little watercolor. I then created a few splatters around the card to give it a little more interest. And then I added a few little non Stampin' Up embellishments called "Skittles" which you can find Here, in my friend Carri's shop. 

  That is it my friends! I hope you really like it. I cannot wait to show you how many different ways you can use this stamp set! If you would like to purchase any of the items you see here today, you can head over to my website HERE .
