Linda here with a layout using the beautiful Always and Forever by Kaisercraft. Is it just me or do you all want to sing the song now? (Must be my age lol!)
Anyway, I wanted to focus on the stamp set this time as it has the most beautiful rose image.
I began with a sheet of Kaisercard in vanilla and stamped the bottom right corner with “always and forever” (singing again!” in black archival ink using the stamp set, plus “xo” around the edge. (XO = hugs and kisses in case you were unsure not OXO cubes 🙂 )
On a piece of smooth white card, I stamped “you + me” plus the rose six times. I tinted the words with Antique Linen Distress ink and trimmed, the roses were coloured with Spiced Marmalade, Carved Pumpkin, Dried Marigold, Peeled Paint and Forest Moss – blended together with a water brush. I left these aside to dry.
Onto the papers now, I cut Romance 8×6″ and matted with 1/4″ border onto Kaisercard Licorice. Have you seen the stunning glitter card? Wow! I cut a piece of Champagne 6×6″ and backed it with Licorice also – in fact everything has been! Then a piece of Admire 5×6″. My photo is 4×4″.
I cut two roses out in full, then just the bud and finally one petal, these were layered using mounting foam. I also cut extra leaves, one set to layer and one to embellish.
A quick spritz of Antique Gold Kaisermist diagonally onto the Vanilla base, then I was ready to place all the layers. You can see they have been overlapped in blocks – I love the black borders as they separate and define the beautiful papers.
Truly Madly Deeply is from the Sticker sheet and I had to have more bling, so layered this and the “you + me” I’d stamped onto the Champagne and also Licorice, then theses were raised on mounting foam and placed onto the page to “anchor” down the roses and extra leaves.
Finally a touch of glitter pen to the rose petal and a couple of Coral Sparklets and I was done.
Thank-you for taking the time to read this, check back later for more inspiration from the DT.
Until then, take care,
