Sweetbriar Rose Thanks

Hello, I have two cards featuring a bunch of retiring products. For my first card, I used the stunning {Sweetbriar Rose} stamp set. The {Deco Label Framelits Dies, Greetings Thinlits Dies, English Garden Designer Series Paper, Blackberry Bliss card stock, Blackberry Bliss ink & Mossy Meadow ink.} Quite the list wouldn't you say? I'm so very sad to be losing all these lovely products, but I am excited for the new ones we are about to have. 

The Sweetbriar Rose stamp is a single stamp, and is so pretty. I love flowers, all shapes, sizes and colours. I used two of the in-colours (2014-16) that are retiring in two days... Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow. I think Mossy Meadow is my favourite colour, well and Bermuda Bay. I'm going to miss it so much!! 

I did some water colouring on the flowers using an {Aqua painter} with my ink refills. I punched it out with the 2-1/2" Circle Punch, which is also retiring. So sad, one of my most used punches. I used the retiring {Deco Label Framelits Dies}, the second largest to die cut a piece of vellum card stock to add over the Sweetbriar Rose image. I adhered the "thanks" die cut with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, and on the opposite side before attaching to the water coloured image. This way you can't see any of the adhesive through the vellum. 

For my next card, I went with less layers - but it does pack a punch. I used similar colours as the first card, with the exception of adding Tangelo Twist and Hello Honey to the background wash. It adds a nice effect when the colours blend together. I added a few Rhinestones and that's it. I hope you like these cards and have a sweet day!

Thanks for stopping by, happy stamping!
