Stampin' Up Cute Conversations Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternate Card with Rose Garden VI

Gosh, this week is just flying by so fast and I have some projects to work on so I'll get right to today's cards.  Again, I used Stampin' Up's Cute Conversations Paper Pumpkin kit with SU's Rose Garden Thinlits Dies.

Let's get this party started:

My card base is SU's Basic Gray Card Stock with a SU Pink Pirouette card front panel from SU's Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack.

The heart and the sentiment stamp is from Stampin' Up's monthly Paper Pumpkin Kit called Cute Conversations.  I adhered a Smoky Slate heart from the kit to my card front panel using Stampin' Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment in SU's Basic Black Archival Ink.
I die-cut the rose from SU's Blushing Bride Card Stock and the leaf from SU's Old Olive Card Stock using SU's Rose Garden Thinlits Dies.  

I adhered the rose die-cut to a scrap piece of SU's Pink Pirouette Card Stock using SU's Fine Tip Glue Bottle and then fussy cut around the rose die-cut to remove the excess paper.  I then adhered the piece to the heart with Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

The leaf was adhered using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue to just the end of the leaf that nudged up to the rose.  I purposely left the end of the leaf loose.

This time, I used some of SU's Blushing Bride Sequin Trim, instead of the Watermelon Wonder Sequin Trim that comes in the kit, and randomly adhered them around my card using SU's Fine Tip Glue Bottle.

For my second card, I changed the card base to SU's Smoky Slate Card Stock and I experimented with the rose.  I die-cut the rose from SU's Rose Red Card Stock and adhered it to SU's Blushing Bride Card Stock.  I then quickly and gently water colored the Blushing Bride Card Stock in the rose with SU's Blushing Bride Ink and an Aqua Painter.  I didn't use much water so the card stock would not pill or buckle.  I'm really happy with the results.

After my card dried, I took my Wink of Stella Pen and went over the Rose Red die-cut and some of the water colored area's.  Then, I went over the Rose Red die-cut again!  Love, Love and Love!!!  I wish you could see it in person.  The glistening, glittery effect is so beautiful.

No matter how many times I tried, this picture just turned out blurry.  My apologizes; but, I just gave up and went with it.

I used SU's Floral Frames Collection Die's to die-cut my SU Whisper White and Blushing Bride DSP.  I cut two of the petals of each piece and adhered them to the inside of my card using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

That's all I have for today!  Thanks for stopping by my blog.

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  Please be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
