Rose Garden Thinlit is a unique simple thinlet you will enjoy using! Let me share 2 different looks I’ve come up with!
I copied the sample on page 19 in the Occasions catalog. Take a look at the beautiful sympathy card our Stampin Up artists created. For my creation, I took watercolor paper and Aqua Painter and just had fun spreading color on my watercolor paper #122959. Here I used Rose Red and Old Olive
Next I die cut the Rose Garden Thinlit out of Whisper White cardstock and laid it over the watercolor paper so it looks like this….
It really has a clean look! Adhere the die cut with Fine Tip Glue is the easiest. It’s #138309
I decided to cut around the outer edge of the Rose Garden die cut and adhere it onto a piece of 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Whisper White card stock that I had run through the Big Shot with Softly Falling Embossing Folder and layered with Stampin’ Dimensionals onto a Whisper White card stock card base. Here’s my finished product.
Last week, you may have seen on my blog the card we did for Sr. Center/Lucille Tatum classes with the Rose Wonder and Rose Garden Thinlet. Here is how we created that card.
Stamp the Rose Wonder stamp with Black Stazon on Whisper White card stock and color in with Blender pen and ink. I used Blushing Bride, Rose Red, and Old Olive on this rose. I really like using the ink from a tile because
- It doesn’t dry out your ink pad by leaving it open
- The ink is less concentrated so you don’t get the dark spots that can’t be blended out
- You can have all your colors in one spot to use and mix with
Now die cut Rose Garden Thinlit out of Basic Black card stock. the Big Shot Die Brush makes it so easy to release the card stock from the die and separate the little scrap pieces. It is item # 140603. Be sure to use the Precision Platform too # 139684 so the inside of your Rose Garden die cuts well.
It will look like this when it is out of the die
Now place it over the colored rose and WOW! looks great now!
The lesson from this is that the OUTLINE makes all the difference in the world for us to visually see the image.
I cut around the outline of the rose only on the top right of my card base so the inside shows…..
Now…..your turn to try out different colors of rose die cuts!
I love to see your creations! If you send them to me and are using Stampin’ Up products, I’ll put on our YOU TOO CORNER! Here is a fun card from my friend, Jeanette in Jacksonville, NC.
Jeanette made this card from the Starburst Thinlits Die. Pretty nice Jeanette! Thanks for sharing!
