FS51 - Birthday Roses


Here is my card for Featured Stamper on Sunday (FS 51 Stamping Pam) - using my new Kitchen Sink Stamps 3-step Hearts & Roses. Here is the beautiful card I cased from Pam Are You Ready For Spring CASE. I changed colors, set, embellishments.

I knew I'd love this set (was bummed when SU! retired Roses in Winter but I have to admit I am more drawn to realistic flowers most and this fits the bill PERFECTLY). It's so easy to use layering all the roses because they're clear and you can 'see' your placement. After I was done, I regretted not masking the flowers so I could make the leaves more realistic 'behind' the roses. But, I didn't really want to start over. Note to self for next time.

My 3-step colors for the roses (there are really 4) are Cameo Coral stamped off, Groovy Guava stamped off, Groovy Guava full, Really Rust.

My 3-step colors for the leaves (there are 3) are Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Always Artichoke.
I used the floral background on the guava base. Sentiment is Stampin' Up! Sincere Salutations, which was a Christmas gift to demos 2006 (I believe) and use it ALL the time as I love the mixed script & print.
