How to Color the Rosettes by Stampin’ Up!

Curly Cute Stamp set with Vanilla Rosetted from Stampin' Up! Canada

 

As I was making this card with the new Rosettes from the Occasions Mini catalogue, I really, really wanted to use Rosettes that would match my card instead of the vanilla colour that they are in the package. So, I decided to try and dye the Rosettes.

First, I placed a few drops of ink refill into a little bit of water and then soaked the Rosette in the ink and water mixture. This worked well but the colour wasn’t as intense as I wanted.

Next, I dipped the Rosette quickly into a dish of water and removed it. Placing the Rosette on my table, I added a few drops of re-inker directly to the rosette and the colour quickly spread out. I decided I liked this way of colouring the flowers better and the colour was a better match to the cardstock.

So, I let the Rosettes dry and made this card.

I stamped a greeting from the Curly Cute stamp set in Whisper White Craft ink onto the Cherry Cobbler card. Then, I layered Baja Breeze cardstock that had been embossed with the Elegant Lines embossing folder for the Big Shot onto Pear Pizzazz cardstock with a punched Scallop Trim Border. After attaching a length of Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding with a bow, I added Pear Pizzazz Cardstock cut with the Little Leaves Sizzlit. Finally, the coloured Rosettes were added with mini glue dots.
