Hi everyone, the Wonderful Romance stamp set is quite lovely. It might surprise you to learn that what first caught my attention with this stamp set was not the images I could colour (that’s usually what I notice first) but the sentiments. I love the fonts used. I also love those sweet sentiments. Of course, the colouring did appeal to me as well – I cannot deny that.
It is quite an easy card to make. The part which took the longest was the colouring and even that didn’t take too long. To start, you need a sheet of Old Olive cardstock which you cut and score to size. Take the two foliage stamps and stamp them randomly over the background. Next, take a piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut it your preferred size. Stamp the big floral image from the Wonderful Romance stamp set and colour it in with your preferred colouring medium. I used Stampin’ Blends and then added a bit of Wink of Stella to the flowers. To finish off this panel I wanted to add some spattering. The stamp set does come with a “spatter” stamp but I wanted a more random look. To achieve this I used my Aqua Painter and flicked on my ink. I love how it looks!
Before adhering the finished panel to the card base, take a piece of vellum and stamp your choice of sentiment. I used Blackberry Bliss ink and then set it with my Heat Tool as you can easily smudge this ink. Fold the vellum around the stamped panel and secure on the back. Then adhere the panel to the card. The final touch was to add some gold sequins from the Metallic Sequin Assortment pack.
Here’s the card…
I really like this card and may try it again. I like the idea of stamping and embossing the sentiment in gold. I would also like a little more contrast with the leaves so would probably work on that a bit more. I love the overall design of this card.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
