Hello friends! Norine here, back again with some cards that feature the adorable Helen and Harry the Hippos stamps and dies. All of my hippos this month got a fun fabric-styled coloring treatment. I felt like that made them look like cute stuffies and made them suitable for a baby card in particular, and sweet, fun cards in general.

Now, many of you know that I am a colorer.. colorist? colorizer? er.. I love to color stamped images ;). Give me a beautiful rose, or a bunch of grapes, or a lily, or even a happy little octopus, and I can make it shine. However, though I hate to admit it, I have never really made a scrapbook page. It's one of those hobbies that I just haven't gotten into before, and right now, I'm wondering why not?!!?

Hello crafty friends!

It’s Ana here today sharing a card I made with the beautiful Sending Roses Stamp Set and the matching Sending Roses Dies! They are part of the Greenhouse Society Collection of flower stamps and dies.

This newest Technique Tuesday floral addition took my breath away when I saw it! I love roses and all the beautiful colors they come in and I just couldn’t wait to color this gorgeous image!

For today’s card I decided to color the stamped roses in classic red.

To start, I stamped two rose images on Neenah Classic Crest 80 lb. cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Watercolor Stamped Rose Tutorial with Dana Kirby

Hey there, it's Julie! Today I'm happy to welcome Dana Kirby back to our blog. In this blog post, Dana shares her stamped rose watercolor tutorial. Dana used her watercolors and the Sending Roses stamps and the matching Sending Roses dies to create such a sweet card! (These stamps and dies are the May additions to the Greenhouse Society Collection.)

Hi Friends! It is Dana here today sharing a card using the gorgeous Sending Roses Stamp Set from the May release.

Photo-May-11 -3-18-42-PM

I started my card by stamping my rose image in black ink and water coloring it with a pale blue and green watercolor. I used a lot of water, and just kept adding color until I got my desired look. Next, I used the Sending Roses dies to die cut my rose image. I set this aside and began working on my card design.

Photo-May-11 -3-18-58-PM

I started by die cutting the large Essential Stitched Labels Crafting Die from light gray cardstock for my center label. Next, I die cut Sending (included with the Sending Roses die set) from medium gray cardstock. I attached this to my label and stamped the rest of my sentiment (lots of love from the Sending Roses stamp set) underneath. I also added my rose image to my label at this time.

Photo-May-11 -3-18-51-PM

To finish my card, I used an aqua piece of patterned paper to create my card panel. I attached this to a medium gray mat before attaching it to my A2 card base. Lastly, I attached my label to my card front with foam adhesive.

Don't you just love this Sending Roses stamp set and dies? The image is gorgeous and the sentiments are definitely some of my favorites!

Dana's card is so beautiful, right? And her rose stamp tutorial using watercolors makes it so easy to replicate this card. If you aren't into watercolors, you might like my tutorial about how to color and add highlights to these stamped roses using alcohol markers. Or use the Sending Roses stamps and dies with any or all of your favorite coloring mediums. I hope Dana's card and these tutorials inspire you to make some beautiful stamped roses of your own!
