Everything is Rosy – Rose Gold Samples

Die-Cut/ Samples/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Happy Friday crafting peeps! I am having so much fun creating with the Everything is Rosy medley of products.

Everything is Rosy - Rose Gold Samples

My favorite thing about this box of goodies is all of the rose gold that is inside! This is a new type of product offering for Stampin' Up!, so some of my customers have been a little confused as to everything that is included. For $80 (plus tax and shipping) you get a stamp set, a coordinating set of dies, eight 6″ x 6″ sheets of Rose Gold Foil, forty-eight sheets of 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper, six sheets of die-cuts, two full rolls of ribbon, a sheet of mirrored embellishments,  and a bottle of Rose Gold Shimmer Paint!

I have 2 cards to share with you today and I think you'll notice the rose gold on both of them! 🙂

Everything is Rosy - Rose Gold Samples

To get the shimmer background, I used a sponge with a tiny bit of shimmer paint and “swept” it on the 4 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Melon Mambo cardstock, starting at the top. It gets lighter near the bottom so I did this same technique again, starting at the bottom and working up, just to make sure I had the right coverage.  I punched a 2 1/4″ circle from one of the DSP pages and then adhered several of the floral stickers behind this circle.  I chose my tag and then used a “third generation” stamped flower in Melon Mambo ink, followed by my sentiment in Night of Navy ink.

If you haven't heard of the term “third generation” stamping it's just a fancy way of saying “stamping three times without reinking in between”.

I added a small piece of the pink ribbon to my tag and popped it onto the card front using a few Stampin' Dimensionals.

To finish the card, I attached this piece to a Whisper White Thick cardstock base. Personally, when I'm using layers and embellishments, I prefer to use one of our thick cardstocks. I think it is sturdier.

My next card uses a gorgeous piece of DSP with lots of rose gold!

For this card, I stamped the sentiment on a 2″ Whisper White circle and attached this to a 2 1/4″ circle punched from one of the Rose Gold foil sheets.  The layer is a 2 1/4″ x 4″ piece of the floral DSP, cut it into three strips, each 3/4″. I mounted these on a 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Rococco Rose, one of our new In Colors.

I added one of the die-cut stickers to complete my card. Easy, peasy…done!
