WSC120- Hello Roses

 It's time for our weekly Wednesday Stamp Club with My Favorite Things. I got a little techy this week, and did some embossing and Copic coloring on Kraft. I loooved a sample Lisa Johnson did during Teasers and I had to give it a try. I loooove how the white embossing on the kraft just makes those flowers POP!

The stamp set is Sweet Roses and I used the complimentary Die-namics set, Roses and Leaves to cut out my pieces.

I framed them all up on an Insta Frame Die-namics and stamped the sentiment with pretty Orange Fizz ink. I wrapped some yummy Hemp Twine around the bottom so I could add a bow. 

I used a variety of Copic markers to color up the inside of the roses and leaves. 

You'll see from the sketch that I flipped it and now my pennants are all pointing up on this card. I was going to use some pretty pattern paper but decided to showcase some for gorgeous background stamps the MFT makes. I have been doing this a bit more....trying to really get some extra milage out of my stamps. I am having fun making a custom look for my cards. 

I used Fishtail Flag Stax Die-namics to cut out four pennats-two from Orange Fizz, one from Sno Cone, and another one from Smooth White cs. I cut them down and then stamped some flowers from Spring Background (in Orange fizz ink), polka dots from Darling Dots (in Sno Cone ink) , and the pretty scripty font from Pretty Poppies(in Orange Fizz ink).  I grounded them all with a Kraft strip from Blueprints2. I just love that stitched detail this die embosses. 

I added some more pretty flowers and polka dots to the inside. Love that Smooth White Cardstock. 

Here is this week's sketch:
