Rose Vine for The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge

Welcome back to a new challenge for The Sisterhood of Crafters.  I chose the theme for this two-week period, and it is perfect for this time of year.  It is “Newly Acquired Stash“.  With the holidays still in our rearview mirror, I feel certain that a lot of stampers have great new products to share!  My new stash item is the Rose Vine bundle by Anna Griffin.  And, why am I using an Anna Griffin product?  My husband purchased the Anna Griffin Empress die-cutting and embossing machine for me while it was on sale over the holidays!  Oh lucky me!!

The Rose Vine bundle includes 4 dies and a 3-D embossing folder.  In order to better feature the embossed panel, I die-cut an oval shape from the center of the main die.  It normally would not have this “hole.”   The two red die-cuts are part of the bundle as is the red die cut used inside with the sentiment.

Please note that although the die-cuts and embossed image are not Stampin’ Up! products, everything else associated with the card is.  The inside stamped images came from “Modern Heart,” a stamp set released in the 2019 Annual Catalog.  I captured the heart image with white pigment ink and white sparkle emboss powder.  Then I selectively masked the sentiments in order to stamp just the words desired.  The gold and black designer paper is part of the Golden Honey DSP Sale-a-Bration offering.

Because this card is due to my husband’s generosity, it is only fitting that my first project is a Valentine’s card for him!  I think he will like it, don’t you?

Have fun stamping,
