Layering Roses with Layered Inks

Hello friends!! It’s Channin here and today I’m sharing a bold floral card I created with a beautiful layering stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps. To create the perfect pink rose I employed several tricks to get just the right shade and I can’t wait to share them with you!

To create this card I started with stamping the roses from the Antique Layering Roses stamp set. There are four layers for each rose and for each layer I used a combination of Distress Inks to create the perfect shade. Starting with layer one, I first inked the stamp up with Spun Sugar and stamped twice. I then inked up the stamp with Worn Lipstick but I used a foam blending tool apply the ink to the stamp and then stamped the layer. The foam blending tool creates a lighter application resulting in a lighter shade. 

For the second layer of the roses I inked up the stamp in Worn Lipstick and then stamped. Next, with a foam blending tool I inked it up with Picked Raspberry and then stamped. Then for layer 3, I first stamped the stamp twice in Picked Raspberry and then inked up the stamp with Abandoned Coral and then stamped. For the final layer, I first inked up the stamp with Picked Raspberry and stamped three times. Then I inked up the stamp with Candied Apple and stamped twice.

Next, I stamped my leaves. For the first layer of the leaves I stamped them in Shaded Lilac. I then inked up the upper third of the leaf with Blueprint Sketch using a foam blending tool and stamped again. Next, I ink up the second layer of the leaf in Shaded Lilac and stamped twice. I then inked up the layer with Blueprint Sketch using a foam blending tool and stamped again. For the last layer, inked it up in Blueprint Sketch and stamped three times. 

After I had stamped all my roses and leaves I then die cut them out with the matching dies. I then created a watercolored background on Bristol paper with Tombow Dual Brush pens. When the panel had dried I then adhered it to the front of an A2 top-folding white card base. Next, I created a sentiment by first die cutting “BIG’s” out of white cardstock using the Big Buzzword Honey Cuts. I then stacked and adhered two layers of the “BIG” die cut together and then die cut a shadow layer out of vellum. Next, I adhered the vellum over the stacked letters and then finished the sentiment by adhering the remaining cardstock letters on top. I then stamped and white heat-embossed two sub-sentiments from the Big Buzzword Stamp Set onto black cardstock. I then finished the card by adhering the images and sentiments to the card front. 

I hope you enjoyed my card! Thank you so much for stopping by!
