A Newsprint Rose Card

So, when I got my Stampin' Up! preorder last week, this idea was on my list of things to try with the new Newsprint DSP. I used the rose from Fifth Avenue Floral...

All products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, Artistic Etchings, En Francais
Ink: Crumb Cake; Versamark; Whisper White craft ink
Paper: Perfect Pear, Concord Crush cardstock; Tangerine Tango textured cardstock; Newsprint DSP
Accessories: Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Hemp Twine, Black embossing powder, paper piercer, blender pen

I stamped the rose onto the newsprint with Versamark and heat embossed it using black powder. I added some low lights to the rose with my blender pen and Crumb Cake ink. Next I cut it out for the card.

I chose Perfect Pear for the cardbase because I thought it would go well with the new Concord Crush- a really pretty purple shade that I hadn't used yet. After stamping it with the En Francais background, I pierced holes around the outside edge. I added the black newsprint band to the front and decided that the card just needed one more element near the bottom. At first, I grabbed for my Rich Razzleberry- it is a go to color for me right now- and as I was searching for a scrap, Tangerine Tango fell out- wouldn't you know, that was just the punch of color I needed! I texturized the textured cardstock piece using the new Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. I added the Concord Crush scallop to my design last, mostly because I just wanted to use that color. Hee! I stamped it first with the medallion from Artistic Etchings and then roughed up the edges just a little with my Decor Elements applicator.

In all, a simple card that looks somewhat complicated! I love it!

Hope you are enjoying your day!
