Winter Rose – Hello

Our current challenge at HANDSTAMPED SENTIMENTS (#378) is a Color Challenge.

Playing around with the Iconic Dies.  I chose the floral inspiration photograph and the sketch from the Inspired By Challenge (#197) to create my card.

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Basic White cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (4⅛” x 5⅜”) Merry Merlot cardstock.
  • Image Panel: (4” x 5¼”) Basic White cardstock.
  • Focal Image – Winter Rose and Greenery.
    • Using the Floral die and the Fern die from the Iconic Dies set, I created Stencils using Copy Paper.
    • Using a Blending Brush, I added Merry Merlot ink over the Floral Stencil resulting in the White Rose.
    • Using a Sponge Dauber, I added two Ferns in Soft Succulent ink and one Fern in Evening Evergreen ink.
    • The sentiment, Hello, from the retired Life is Beautiful stamp set was stamped with Merry Merlot ink.  I chose this sentiment because I really like the font.
    • Three Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels – Light Green were added to complete the card and match the sketch.

These three colors work so nicely together and blending and sponging created soft and pretty images.

I hope you will join us. I cannot wait to see what you will make with these colors!

  1. Wow, Jolanda – genius! I am so challenged by one layer cards, but you completely nailed the stenciling on this! What a fabulous design!


  2. Your card is so soft and soothing! I love how you thought to make your own stencils, that is such a great idea. I will have to try that! Thanks for sharing!
