Stamp Review Crew – Rose Wonder


Welcome to the first March Stamp Review Crew blog hop.

The fabulous crew will be dazzling you with beautiful projects made with the Rose Wonder stamp set – and coordinating Rose Garden Framelits.

This stamp set, as you can see by the number of sentiments, lends it’s to so many occasions.  It really has something for everyone.

And of course, rose can come in any colour you like.

If you’re travelling around the hop, you might just have come from Twila -isn’t she great?

Make sure to keep hopping til you get back to where you started!

For my SRC project, I’ve use the no-line watercoloring technique to create a yellow rose of sympathy.

It’s a little oversized for the jar – but I love it as a statement piece!

I’ve tried no-line watercolouring before, but felt like I was little better at it this time around.

Though, as you can see, there’s still room for improvement!!!

Using watercolour paper definitely helps.

I decorated the inside of the card with a framelit from the Rose Garden set and some of the DSP I used on the front.

I certainly am enjoying my self imposed challenge to pay more attention to the insides of my cards.

I also using Mint Macaron as much as I can in the few months until it retires.

If this is one of your favourite colours too, be sure to stock up before it goes!!!

I know you’re going to love what Heidi has made using the Rose Wonder bundle – she’s always so inspirational!


The SRC posts are all scheduled to go live at the same time, but there’s sometimes a mishap or 2 along the way.

Please be patient with us as we sort out the kinks in the first couple of moments.  At some point the day of the hop, the Stamp Review Crew main post will also go live.  Check back here for the full line up.

Thanks for joining us – isn’t it fun travelling around the world from your computer or phone!?!

It’s the weekend.  Know what that means for me?  No more work til next week and time to craft!!!

I’ve got lots of exciting things on my list including a CASEing the Catty project for Sunday and more market goodies.

I layered the flower stamp in Basic Black Archival ink in the corner using the masking technique and then added a coloured version on top for a ‘pop of colour’.

Add some texture with gold metallic thread and Rose Garden thinlit leaves, a sentiment at the bottom and it’s finished!

Rose Garden – Stained Glass Effect & Hello Chrissie!

Welcome to Stampin’ Up! Chrissie!!!  This card is on it’s way to the newest member of Team Papercraft to say HELLO!

Chrissie is excited to start doing workshops & classes in her local area (northern NSW).  She’s got an incredibly crafty background and so much passion!  So, if you’re in her area and looking for a fresh Stampin’ Up! face, make sure you get in touch with her.

Rose Wonder Stained Glass Window technique. Kelly Kent -

For Chrissie’s card, I used a complementary colours to fill the rose & create a ‘stained glass’ effect with the Rose Garden Thinlits.  It looks amazing.  A little time consuming for the first one, but by using all the pieces from each colour, you can actually create 2 of these in no time at all.

How to create your own stained glass window…

  • Make your outline by cutting the die from a piece of cardstock – I used Basic Black for my outline.  You can discard the middle pieces, but keep the die cut.
  • For the ‘stained glass’, cut the die again using two shades of the same colour – I used Cherry Cobbler & Real Red.  Save these pieces (it’ll be helpful to keep them in rose formation if you can).
  • Using the ‘negative’ cardstock, trace around the border of the rose on a piece of scrap cardstock.  Cut this out to create a backing for your stained glass rose.
  • Apply adhesive to the scrap rose & place the outline piece on top.
  • Then, (working quickly before your adhesive dries if you are using a liquid glue) add the pieces back in to the rose, alternating the two colours.
  • You can also do this for the leaves using two shades of green – I used Old Olive & Pear Pizzazz

You’ll notice I’ve done some creative adaptations to the rose – chopping off the petals it comes with and replacing them with the smaller ones in the set.

The Most Stella Find in the Occasions Catalogue

Have you had a chance to look through your Occasions catalogue yet?  It’s full of beautiful new products – most of them ‘must-haves’ for me!

You’ll want to make sure that you have Wink of Stella on your wishlist.  Flip to page 24 and look for them in the middle of the page.  It’s easy to miss these gorgeous pens but they are amazing – and need to be part of your crafting stash!  It comes in clear and gold.  If you’re unsure, which colour to get (and the craft budget doesn’t extend to both), then start with the clear, as this adds a subtle touch of shimmer over any colour.

They shimmer is truly spectacular – you can’t really capture it in a photo, but I tried!  The best thing to do is order one for yourself and try it out.

I’ve paired the Wink of Stella pen with the Rose Garden framelits.  These are spectacular in their own right and if the number of samples already on Pinterest are anything to go by, it’s going to be an incredibly popular bundle in the new catalogue.  The font on the coordinating stamp set is beautiful!
