Fab Friday #165 | Rococo Rose Bloom & Grow

Hello stamping friends! Welcome to my little part of Internet land. I hope that you are having a fabulous week and an awesome Thursday! And that you are having a creative week too! Despite being winter here in Melbourne the sun has been shinning today and it has actually been quite a beautiful day! It almost feels like early spring weather not start of winter weather.

I was commenting on someone else's blog this morning and saw a link to the Fab Friday Challenge blog and saw that they had a sketch challenge this week so I decided to play along. I haven't entered in with the Fab Friday crew before but I'm excited to play along with the for the first time.

 If you have been following my blog for a while now you will know that the sketch challenges are my all time favourite and if given the chance I try my hardest to play along.

My card features the beautiful new 2019 - 2021 In Color - Rococo Rose and a stamp set that initially didn't catch my eye when I first flicked though the new catalogue, but am really loving, is Bloom & Grow. The open line images from this set are perfect for colouring and that's what I've done here today.

I've started with heat embossing the floral images with White Stampin' Emboss Powder on Shimmery White Cardstock and then using an aqua painter coloured the flowers with Rococo Rose and the leaves with Mossy Meadow.

To get the spotty kraft cardstock layer I opened, at the seam, a Stampin' Up! Kraft Pillow Box and then die cut the box with the Stitched Rectangle Dies for a gorgeous, fun layer. I love the spotty patterns in these boxes and really wanted to incorporate it into my card.

I've then finished off the card with some of the Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon. I just cut a piece in half and then layered them on top of each other. Pretty! And then also used some of the 2019–2021 In Color 6" X 6" Designer Series Paper, White Baker's Twine, Linen Thread and some Basic Pearls to bring the card all together.

The Rococo Rose is such a gorgeous dusty pink. I think it's my new favourite Stampin' Up! pink. SO pretty!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
