Floricultre card and Journal page

Well, it is the LAST day of April, and I am sure everybody is wondering where this month went to in such a hurry.....I know I am.

Today's offering, as my DT piece, is a card using white embossed paper, a white die cut and a sentiment form the Floriculture (RRD003) half plate of stamps form Rogue Redhead Designs.  The sentiment was stamped and embossed with white. All sitting on a red card base. This is going to be ONE of THOSE stamps that I will use over and over again.

Here it is again on a journal page.  I tore the edge of the page off and glued it to the opposite side, rubbed a Memories soft rose ink pad over the gessoed page, then gently wiped it with a damp towelette.  Using the same ink pad, I stamped the rose in the background, and using the Memories soft leaf inkpad I stamped the fern along the torn edges.  They really show better to the naked eye than what the scanner gave me.  I hand tore a heart, crumpled it, ran the ink pad over it, then glued it in place.   The sentiment was stamped with TH Distressed Peeled Paint.  I restamped the rose, on white cs, with soft rose ink, then fussy cut them and some fern images to add to the heart.  Some swirly pearls finished the page.

Today is the LAST day this half plate of stamps will be on sale for ONLY $10.00, so don't miss out.

  1. Krisha, this is fabulous.... I simply love what you've done with the torn paper and the ink. I am busy thinking of ideas for backgrounds for my album and this is certainly a technique to use. I love the scrumpled up look, too. I shall be using more masculine colours but love the idea of adding some stamping. Thanks for the inspiration!


  2. I like the torn and reused piece too. What a great stamp.


  3. I can see why you like that stamp. You have shown how versatile it is. Nicely done!
