Heartfelt Creations July Alumni Blog Hop: Nautical Rose Tutorial & Really Reasonable Ribbon
Hello, Friends! Welcome to the July 2016 Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop! I’m the first stop on the hop this month. From here you will go to Vicki’s lovely blog. Today I’m sharing a Nautical Rose Tutorial using the Botanical Rose stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations. I’ve paired it up with gorgeous satin ribbon and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I just love these sagey greens. We have a beach near us where the water looks just like this on a sunny day!
I just love this Botanical Rose die, and it works great as a Nautical Rose, doesn’t it? To give it a vintage look, I painted it with Ranger Clear Rock Candy Distress Paint after it was all put together. The paint reacts slightly with the Distress Inks I used on the petals and the end result is totally yummy!
I often use the Heartfelt Designer paper as the base for my stamped flowers. Most of the coloring is all done for you this way, and the paper is the perfect weight for shaping.
This gorgeous sage green satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon is the perfect color match for these papers. It has a lovely soft shimmer that adds extra texture to this card. Adding some Natural Burlap String makes for a fuller bow cluster, which I love! I also used Ivory Burlap Woven Ribbon as a header on the card. Simply separate the strands with your fingers to add even more yummy texture to your card.http://allidoisstamp.blogspot.com/search/label/Heartfelt%20Creations
