Saturday Showcase - Stamperia House of Roses

Hi!  Suzz here for the Saturday Showcase.  Today I am featuring the new Stamperia House of Roses papers.

These papers are not lacking roses or beautiful romantic images to create beautiful cards.

I started with sorting through the different papers and picking images to use as my focal point and backgrounds to highlight the images. 
 This was my leftover scraps inspired card.  I took some of the pieces that were left from my other cards to assemble a mix of roses and papers.


1.  Assemble scraps from other projects.  (Don't forget the die cuts you didn't use or the ribbon bits)
2.  Tear edge of paper.  Distress edges with distressing tool.  Sponge edges with distress ink.
3.   Cut second piece of paper and tear along the same lines as the first paper.  Sponge edges with distress ink.
4.  Layer papers together.
5.  Sponge die cut crochet pieces and attach along edges of the torn surface.
6. Cut out rose images.  Sponge dye ink on edges of cut out images. (This help hides where your cutting might not be as clean. :)
7. Die cut butterfly from excess paper bag.  I used the material that my stamps were wrapped in from my recent order from The Funkie Junkie.
8.  Sponge edges of butterfly with a mix of pink and brown oxide ink.  Stamp script over butterfly.
9.  Roll up extra piece of paper and put a glue dot to hold it together.  Tie twine around and attach to butterfly.
10.  Layer all the flowers and butterfly together with pop dots and tape.

Next I spied this sweet bird and birdhouse on one of the smaller vignettes in the pack. 

 I decided to cut out the bird and bird house to layer them with pop dots to add dimension.

1. Cut background panel.  Sponge edges with distress ink.
2. Cut out panel with bird and birdhouse.  Cut out bird and birdhouse.
3. Die cut strips of crochet lace.  Sponge with distress ink.
4. Cut out mini tag and sponge with distress ink.
5. Die Mummy Cloth and flowers with a mix of distress oxide pink and brown distress ink spray.
6. Attach lace trim around the panel with the cut out birdhouse and bird.
7. Attach panel with trim to background panel.
8. Pop dot bird and bird house and place over cut out on panel.
9. Add nest, crochet trim, and flowers to the panel.
10. Add tag with stickers and twine bow.

After that card was assembled I went on to create one more card.

 For this one I was inspired by another panel that I cut out and used as the backdrop to a few other embellishments.

1.  Cut background paper.
2.  Apply embossing paste to background using layering stencil. Let dry. Sponge with brown dye ink. 
3.  Cut panel and clock from other sheets of paper.
4.  Sponge all edges with dye ink.
5.  Die cut butterfly.
6.  Spray with distress oxide ink and distress stain spray the butterfly, flowers, mummy cloth.
7.  Roll up scrap papers and glue dot the end to the side and attach to the background.
8. Assemble and layer the images and embellishments.

  5. Oooh! Ooooh! OooooH! These cards are sooo pretty, Suzz! You have sold me on this gorgeous paper pad! I love these romantic papers and all of the details you've added to them--like that mummy cloth bow, those rolled papers, laces...I could go on and on. But I think I will just sit and stare! Well done, you!
