Sunday Stampers - Week 65 - Whole Lotta Rosie

Morning Stampers!

Another Sunday already!!! Thank you to all who joined in with the challenge last week...I loved all your entries :O))

This week the theme is ... Roses ... yes, I know the song title is a loose interpretation but this happens to be another fave from my teenage years...and I even named my little puddytat after it....no, she wasn't called Whole Lotta!! LOL I have made another hanging piece for my entry this week, I really must start to make other things but am so addicted to this style of art!




I used some Jenni Bowlin papers for the background, sanding the edges and then using Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks to blend. I cut a fancy border strip using a Martha Stewart punch...still no Doily Punch at Chez Hels tho :O( Am still being patient (!) I used my Bug and Slice to make some card shapes, which were then treated to the same Distress inkyness and then a T!im Holtz collection wordy stamp for the main sentiment.




Adding a little bookplate and words from Catslife Press, I went on to embellish the piece with lots of Idea-ology bits and bobs, some heavenly chain for the hanging and ... ta dah! Some Grungepaper Stitchels roses...which I am completely addicted to and have made heaps of them...a whole bunch ... get it.....a bunch!!! LOL I used some Spiced Marmalade Distress Stickles too...just to add a bit of bling to the rose petals....Click HERE to go to the Tutorial on how to make the Stitchels Roses if you haven't already seen it.....The majority of the goodies used on this piece, including the Stitchels are available from The Artistic Stamper.




As ever, to join in with the challenge, all you need to do it make something using stamping, incorporate the theme, be it a made rose, a paper rose, a rosie embellie, a stamped rose....tis up to you... please leave me a comment with a link to your Blog and I will hop over and visit you. Thanks for looking...have a great Sunday, I am off to Stevenage to melt some plastic at the Stamperama...if you see a poor woman laden with bags and looking a bit frazzled..that'll be my mate Linda, I will be the calm one with her LOL :O))
