I bought this VERY big rose cling stamp (by Stampendous: Cling Jumbo Rose Set #CRS5006) a really long time ago and used it on my Mother's Day cards. Little did I realize I did not have an acrylic block BIG enough to put it on. Panic! No...LOL...well a little. Then I searched around my craft room until I came up with a solution, because I was determined, I was going to use that stamp!
My ah ha moment! I could use one of my thick Sizzix dies in the plastic case. Would the stamp cling to it? Yes it did! Pretty good too. I inked my white cardstock with Ranger Tim Holtz Spun Sugar distress ink and dragged the whole ink pad over it. Kind of random in all directions. I inked up the rose stamp with Versamark clear watermark ink (the best pigment ink) and started stamping on the cardstock. I sprinkled Inkadinkadoo White Linen embossing powder over the stamped roses and heat embossed. I stamped and embossed one rose at time and cut them out.
I used pre-embossed gray cardstock by American Crafts, but you could make your own with embossing folders, and then I sanded it with a Making Memories sanding block to bring out the pattern. I used two different ribbons by layering a pink polka dot on top of a pink lace for a unique look.
Stamp a sentiment, I used "hello" from Stampin Up. Using the pink cardstock scraps leftover from the rose stamp, and punched it out with an oval punch. Inked the edges of a fabric flower and added a pearl. Add some pearl gems to the center of the rose. I found this stamp very versatile and would use it not only for Mother's Day, but for birthdays, and anniversary cards too. Finished this is an A7 card.
