Sketchy Roses card for Paper Rose Studio

 Hi There

Thanks for joining me for another share

 for Paper Rose Studio.

I have made a card that is super easy and fun and bright.

I have used greys and a splash of yellow to colour my rose white I have listed my Copic marker colours below.

I made the background by using Distress Oxide Inks and blending with brush and  stencil.
Festive Berries, Spiced Marmalade and Seedless Preserves are such
a great combination to contrast with the cool tones of the rose.

finish off the card nicely.

Modern Poppies stamp from Paper Rose Studio

Hello Everyone

and Happy New year to you.

I can't believe that we are into January of 2021 already.

Let's hope this is an amazing year for us all.

Today I want to share a card for Paper Rose Studio featuring 

the beautiful Modern Poppies stamp set.

I am a huge fan of flower stamps and I went for a dramatic 

red colour for the Poppies.

I have stamped in Memento ink and used Copics to colour.

Recently I was asked to try a new blending card from Craft Jeanie and I will say that 

I love how clean and smooth the card looks. Red blending can be tricky and some papers can really grab the pigment but the reds on they card blended really easily 

This is such a beautiful stamp that I have kept my design really simple.

I have used a lace decorative border Die to layer up my card 

and my sentiment is die cut out of black card and painted with glossy accents 

to make it pop!

Supplies Used: 

20580 Modern Poppy Stamp Set

20562 Decorative Border Die

20913 Best Wishes Fine Script Layered Die

my shaker windows.
I have added Shaker elements from Paper Rose Studio to fill these windows.

Little Houses On A Hill Christmas Card


Hi Everyone

I'm back  to share my new project for Paper Rose Studio.

Today I have made a simple Christmas card using the Little Houses On a Hill Border Die.

I wanted to make a Simple yet elegant card for Christmas and I adore cream and gold together 
as a Christmas colour combination and used that as my inspiration.

The background is a Distress Oxide one on a mixed media paper. I have sprayed by 

card base with Speckled Egg and Broken China Distress Oxide sprays and then spritzed

 the card with water and set it aside to dry.

Once the card is fully dry I have splattered it with black and White acrylic Paint.

The rest of the card is really simple die cutting and layering using my stitched rectangle die set to

layer up my card colours with my final layer a thin edge of metallic gold.

 My sentiment is also cut out of gold metallic card and the smaller sentiment has been stamped 

and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

Supples Used:

18363 Little Houses On A Hill Die

17823 Merry Christmas Text

16576 Stitched Rectangles A6 Die Set

18225 Christmas sentiments Stamp Set

I hope you have been getting in some crafty time, and if you

need a last minute Christmas card I hope this  has inspired you.

Until next time
