Every week, Glenda offers a stamp sheet at a special price over at Chocolate Baroque This week, the stamp set is Rose Stem Script, a little A6 stamp set that has been around for a little while, but is so useful for all sorts of occasions. A couple of years ago, I used the rose while I was making a DT card and some newer stamps at the time. I carefully cut the rose out, omitting the script background, and made a bouquet with the roses. I set the bouquet onto a piece of linen that I had stamped with a smaller rose, and edged with a piece of lace, making it look like a handkerchief. The card eventually became a Mother's Day card for my Mum, as she has lots of pretty printed hankies, and it reminded me of her.
The little roses are coloured with Copic markers, and the backing paper is from the Essence of Nature CD.
So up to the present day, I have used the rose script stamp to make my OH a Valentine's card. I've kept the design fairly simple, using a monotone colour scheme. He's not much of one for cards, but I can't let the day pass without sending him a token of my love, can I? I've stamped around the edge using a tree from the Fantasy Woodland stamp set, this is fast becoming one of my favourite stamps. The sentiment is an old Elusive Images stamp which fits the bill perfectly, and I've used Distress Markers for the two tone effect.
Rose Stem Script is on offer until Friday, when there will be a different stamp sheet up for grabs at a bargain price:
