Stampin Up To A Wild Rose

Black & White with a Pop

I really like to use black and white in my cards. I think it makes them look so classy. And when you combine black and white with a pop of color, well, then you have a classy card with personality!

For today’s cards I used Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Stamp Set and Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp directly onto a vibrant watercolor background that I created with Pigment Sprinkles.

Pigment Sprinkles are on the Last Chance List and only available until June 2 or while supplies last. 

Last Chance List

Last Chance/Retiring products are only available while supplies last. Don’t miss out on some great items and deals.

Pigment Sprinkles

There are so many ways you can use pigment sprinkles. In this previous post, I sprinkled the pigments onto a craft mat, spritzed with water and pressed my paper into the color for a wild free flow look.

Today, I wanted a more controlled area, so I used the Pigment Sprinkles more like a traditional watercolor.

Watercolor Wash

I added a few Pigment Sprinkles into a container and used water and a paintbrush to create a wash.

In areas where I wanted a more vibrant color I simply picked up more Pigment Sprinkles with my brush and added them to the washed area.

To a Wild Rose

Once the watercolor backgrounds were dry, I stamped the images and sentiments from the To A Wild Rose Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

This stamp set comes with some great sentiments along with the beautiful rose image. Plus it’s very versatile.

  • You can stamp just the outline images over a background wash like I did today.
  • You can stamp the background images and hand color them.
  • Or you can layer the outline image with the shaded images for a photo realistic look.

The current catalog offers bundle pricing for the To A Wild Rose Stamp Set and coordinating dies which will save you 10%. Both the dies and stamp set will be carried over to the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog but without the 10% bundle discount.

Purchase before June 2 to take advantage of the 10% savings on the To a Wild Rose Bundle.
