Blessings (Rose Garden Cards) - Marge Yoon




Hi Everyone!

It's Marge and I'm sharing two watercolour cards featuring the Rose Garden Stamp/Dies set from the Uniquely Creative September Release. 

I really loved the elegant beauty of rose bouquet in this set so I planned to make my projects as simple as I can to keep the floral elegance. 

Of the two cards, I would love to describe a little more details on how I made the shaker one on the right side. 


  1. A) I cut Rose Garden Dies from watercolour paper to create a window for the shaker 
  2. B) I positioned Rose Garden on another piece of A2 sized watercolour paper on my mini-MISTI with the guide of the previously cut panel to make both outlines of the window and stamped images are lined up on the A2 panels precisely. 
  3. C) Next, I stamped the bouquet with clear embossing ink and then I heat embossed it using Mayan Regular from Wow Embossing Powder.
  4. D) I coloured the flowers in pink, violet, and brown using my watercolour paints 


Now, it's time for assembling a shaker. I'm sorry that I can't share photos for this. I was just concentrating on my work and I totally forgot to take photos, lols. 



To make a shaker pouch, I adhered foam tape around the water coloured flowers, then I pulled off the plastic from all the tape, exposing the sticky surfaces. Then I put my sequins and seed beads into the well surrounded by foam tape. In turn, I put my window panel of which I had already adhered an acetate film on the back, looking at the outlines through the window to make sure all are lined up precisely.   

I'm always happy to see my assortment of sequins and beads going well together with the backgrounds in the shaker. 



I added a sentiment 'blessings' from the same Rose Garden set, which was heat embossed in gold and cut with coordinating dies.  

Finally, I adhered some metallic rose gold sequins to finish off my card. 



Now let's move on to my second card.




I stamped the Rose Garden on the two corners in diagonal direction using Distress Ink Tea Dye on my stamping platform. These days, I'm enjoying Tea Dye ink for stamping when I water colour flowers. There's something soft and elegant in the colour of Tea Dye so you can get some tender mood in your paintings and you can also get the clear outlines compared to no-line water colouring, which makes your colouring a lot easier. 



I coloured the flowers in the same way of my first card, then I foam mounted the panel onto a card base.

Next, I adhered the sentiment in the centre and I embellished my card using some clear sequins. 



That's it for today. Thank you so much for reading this. 

I hope you liked my cards and I hope many of you will enjoy the beautiful new floral sets from Uniquely Creative.
