Ellen Hutson LLC is thrilled to welcome Paper Rose Studio stamps & dies to the shop with some gorgeous cards by Emily Midgett.
Good morning! I have a special post for you today. While I was at Creativation, I had the opportunity to take a peek with several new-to-me companies, including an Australian company called Paper Rose. Their selection of gorgeous stamps and absolutely stunning dies (seriously, the dies are SO unique and really wonderful) immediately drew me into their booth, and Ellen decided to add several of their lovely products to the product lineup in the shop! The sweet ladies at Paper Rose were generous enough to share some of their beautiful stamps and dies with me, so I thought I’d take this opportunity to help welcome them to the Ellen Hutson store!
One of the first products that caught my eye was this absolutely fabulous Beautiful Mandala stamp set. (Seriously, check out those incredible details in that stamp!) I heat embossed that beautifully detailed stamp onto some Jelly Bean card stock using gold detail embossing powder. The rich purple is a perfect backdrop to help highlight the insane details in this stamp.
I die cut the celebrate from the Letter Board Script 1 die set from the Essentials by Ellen product line using some gold foil. To help the die cut sentiment stand out from the gold embossing, I mounted it on a strip of vellum and tucked it around the edge of the card front. The final touch was to add some jewels from Pretty Pink Posh on the points of the mandala pattern.
Now, you know me and peonies… like a moth to a flame, I immediately was drawn to this beautiful Peonies stamp set from Paper Rose. I couldn’t wait to color them in any and all mediums. You might have seen a sneak peek of these blooms if you follow me on Instagram (I’m @eamidgett), where I colored these beautiful flowers as part of The Daily Marker 30 Day challenge for February.
I colored these pretty blooms a lovely shade of cotton candy pink using RV000, RV10, RV02, RV55, and N3 Copic markers. I cut them out using the coordinating dies (which cut super close to the edge of the stamped image!), then arranged them in a little bouquet and added adhesive to the back to keep them in that arrangement.
For the card base, I used the new Quatrefoil Background 1 die, which I die cut from plain white card stock and added to a white card base. Creating tone-on-tone backgrounds with intricate cover plate dies is one of my favorite ways of adding subtle texture to a background, which allows my colored images to be the star of the show. These cover plates are sized to fit standard Australian card sizes, which means that they’re slightly taller and narrower than our standard A2 sized cards, but that I thought that edge on either side just added an element of uniqueness to the card front! I adhered the cover plate die cut using liquid adhesive, then added a few pink jewels from Pretty Pink Posh.
Well, that’s all for me today! I hope you enjoyed this little intro to one of the newest companies added to the Ellen Hutson family: Paper Rose! I highly encourage you to check them out. They have a stunning array of beautiful and unique products. Thanks so much for stopping by today!
