Stamperia Shabby Pink Roses and Coral Rose Ribbon: Stamperia House of Roses

Hello, Friends!  I hope you are not tired of seeing projects made with the House of Roses collection because today’s Stamperia Shabby Pink Roses and Coral Rose Ribbon feature that collection once again.  What can I say?  Sometimes a collection captures my imagination and I simply can’t stop playing with it.  Does that ever happen to you?  This one also features a lovely Reneabouquets Beautiful Board doily and vintage pearl topped corsage pins that I found at the Flea Market a while back.  (No junkin’ these days….sigh….) .  The bow uses my favorite ribbon (at the moment) and some lovely flowers and foliage.  Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

Stamperia Shabby Pink Roses and Coral Rose Ribbon: Creating Layers

I tried some new layering techniques on this shabby chic card, and really like the way they turned out.

You would never guess that this card has just one layer of designer paper in the background.  But it does.  The trick I used to create all this wonderful depth and dimension was backing the focal image with layers of waste chipboard.  Then I trimmed around a floral cluster in the paper collection and layered it with a torn piece of wood plank patterned paper.  This lends the illusion that the roses are growing out of a flower box.

Next, create a 5″ x 5″ square panel of cream cardstock.  Choose a soft neutral pattern to line it.  Then emboss the doily with a glitter embossing powder and adhere it in the upper corner.  Now you can begin to layer the fussy cut flowers with some Little Birdie flowers and foliage.  Finish off the panel by wrapping it with White Iridescent Metallic String and a trio of pearl buttons.   All that is left to do now is tie some bows and attach a flower.  Simple.  Elegant. Beautiful.  I really love this card!

I continued the theme of simple elegance on the inside of the card.  Just add a lovely die cut sentiment panel and a mini envelope to hold the tea bag.

Stamperia House of Roses Shaker Card

Stamperia House of Roses Time Brings Roses Shaker Card

Stamperia House of Roses Shaker Card: Time Brings Roses

Hello, Friends!  Today’s dose of crafty inspiration is a Stamperia House of Roses Shaker Card made with Beautiful Board from Reneabouquets.  Time Brings Roses: I love the sentiment inside this elegant shaker box!  It’s so timely for the situation we find ourselves in, isn’t it?

In the middle of all this chaos, I have found myself saying over and over again, ” Look for the beautiful. Be at peace. Be kind.”  This time of “social distancing” is not easy.  But I do believe in my heart that this time will, indeed, bring roses in our lives if we encourage them to bloom.

It would be so easy to focus on the darkness that is roaring all around us.  But what good would that do us in the long run?  And I know that many of us are struggling to keep our lives and our businesses afloat and our families safe.  I’m right there with you.   It would be easy to fall apart.  Instead,  I choose to make beautiful things, prepare lovely (if unusual) meals, to find reasons to rejoice (sunrise and sunset still make my heart sing) and to share a little joy with each of you here.

 The Shaker Box

The Beautiful Board Shaker Box on this card is from Reneabouquet’s shop.  The design is brilliant as it allows for a deep shaker box surrounded with an elegant frame. You can find a tutorial for putting this dimensional shaker box together HERE.  I’ve topped it with a Reneabouquets Heart Deco Small Frame,  a die cut wreath and small Paula Pearl Pink Posies.  Little Birdie Layla Roses and Dusty Rose Wrinkled Ribbon tie all the pink hues together.

Creating Layers

Here’s how this card came together:

  • First, create a light grey 5 1/2″ square card base with a 3/4″ spine.
  • Next, mat a 5″ square of designer paper on both cream and dark grey cardstock.
  • Tear a border piece from the paper collection and adhere along the bottom of the card.
  • Tear another border and adhere at the top.
  • Fussy cut a spray of roses and small flowers from the paper collection and adhere as seen in the photo.
  • Tap the Heart Deco Frame with Versamark Ink and heat emboss with Wow Vintage Champagne Embossing Powder.
  • Assemble the shaker box as seen in the video tutorial.  Before you adhere the top ring, slip the frame over the top.  Then add the top scallop.
  • Die cut the wreath from green and pink cardstock.  Layer together with small pieces of foam dimensionals.  Adhere to the top of the shaker box.
  • Add flowers and ribbon.
  • Cover the top of a G45 Ivory tag with designer paper.  Adhere to the card base.  Then attach the card cover to the card base.

Box style cards make the best gifts, and they are so much fun to create!

Tuck a decorated G45 Square Ivory Tag in the upper pocket. Layer the die cut clock on grey paper to make it pop.

Tea, anyone?  Here you’ll find a mini envelope filled with tea bag and tags.  A lovely vintage silver plated spoon, an individually wrapped Biscoff cookie, chocolate and a honey packet all dressed up with ribbon waits for you in the gift box pocket.  There’s room to write a note or add a photo on the back of the journal card.

Stamperia House of Roses Shabby Chic Card with Reneabouquets April in Paris Doily

Hello Friends!  I thought I would pop in quickly today and share a peek at this Stamperia House of Roses Shabby Chic card.  This one was a special order in my Etsy shop, but it was so pretty, I thought you would enjoy seeing it, too.

This 6×6 card is simple and elegant.  These layers of patterned paper,  torn paper edges and a gorgeous April  in Paris  Doily Chipboard from Reneabouquets really work well together.

  • First, create a 6×6 top fold card base and cover it with designer paper.
  • Next, cut (3) 1 3/4″ x 5″  panels of the wood grain pattern and mat on both cream and blush cardstock. Back with dimensionals.  Center these over the base layer.
  • Tear the pink border piece from a scrap.  Back with thin dimensionals and adhere at the top of the card.
  • Now, heat emboss the April in Paris Doily with Versamark and Wow Vintage Champagne Embossing powder.  Center and adhere on top of the raised panels.
  • Fussy cut the roses from the paper collection.  Back with dimensionals and adhere as seen in the photo.
  • Finish the card front with flowers, ribbon, pearl stick pins,pearl buttons and a chipboard butterfly.

The interior of the card is very simple, per my client’s request.  Just some pretty papers, a little die cut pocket to hold a tea bag and note, and a larger die cut pocket to hold a die cut note card.

This paper collection is so gorgeous, and I could not stop playing with it.  I have more to share on another day.  Did you pick up some tips, tricks and inspiration that you can use in your own crafty adventures?  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.
