Today, we’re putting the spotlight on Rosebuds, the stamp set designed by Shirley Bampton. We’ll be picking one commenter to win this set so leave a comment here and on the rest of the STAMPlorations girls’ posts for a chance to win the set.



I just love the doodled feel of the stamps in this set, and I wanted to put the focus on the sweet bouquet. For my card, I cut a piece of watercolor paper, scored it in 1/2″ increments, and swiped Distress inks over it (frayed burlap, vintage photo, brushed corduroy, black soot) to create a faux wood panel. I mounted this onto my card base using foam tape. On scrap watercolor paper, I stamped the rose bouquet in jet black archival ink and die-cut a stitched oval frame from it. I used my Japanese watercolor brush pens to paint the roses and the background. I stamped the rosebud definition in yellow ink, and I repeated this on the card base before stamping the sentiment in Memento tuxedo black ink. And the card is done!

Now I hope you’ll visit the rest of the STAMPlorations girls’ blogs to see the projects they made showcasing this lovely set. Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you’re having a great week!
