I decided to make this easel card that I learned from a fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.
Her example used the Sailing Home stamp bundle. She presented this card as her Make & Take project for a monthly meeting.
This easel design will lend itself for any occasion. You could even use it as a desk calendar or a picture frame. I have been intrigued with the Brushed Blooms stamp bundle. I love roses but had completely overlooked this set in the January – June 2021 Mini Catalogue, page 29. It didn’t catch my eye until I later saw a sample in the back of the catalogue, on page 77. The three coloured roses are gorgeous. That’s when I decided this bundle deserved another look and it made it onto my next shopping list.
After playing with the stamps, inking up the two sizes of roses with different colours on white cardstock and then stamping them with the same colour ink on the same colour cardstock, I liked what I saw. I then stamped with Versamark ink and embossed it with white embossing powder. Now I was impressed.
The dies give you the ability to layer the petals to create dimension. And when you mix the colours – wow!
In my video below, I show you not only how to make this fun fold, but how to use the dies to build the roses and the leaves.
