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!?!

Rose Wonder: Two-Tone Watercolouring

My Tuesday class ladies are in love with watercolouring and embossing.  It’s given us all lots of practice!

This month they made a beautiful card using the Rose Wonder stamp set, gold embossing and two-tone watercolouring.

It was so much fun to colour with Melon Mambo & Pear Pizzazz together with Daffodil Delight to create a rose with beautiful tones & texture.

It reminds me of the stunning roses in my Dad’s garden. Although, the red ones are still my favourite because they have the most amazing scent!

This technique is very easy…

Emboss the rose with your favourite embossing powder (gold will always be mine!).  Splash on some Daffodil Delight with your Aqua Painter, fill in the spaces with Melon Mambo on the flower & Pear Pizzazz on the leaves (go around… over.. blend – whatever takes your fancy!  Each time you colour this flower it will look slightly different), then go back with more Daffodil Delight if you need to even up the two-tone effect.

Voila!  Oh, and finish your rose with a layer of clear Wink of Stella {if you want to… because it’s pretty!}.

If you want to see my inspiration for this card and a wonderful example of colouring – have a look at Lydia’s absolutely stunning card here.

To my Tuesday ladies – this is what I mean when I say I’m not artistic!  I could never colour like Lydia.  But I do a pretty good job at being creative!  Kelly x

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!
