Frosted Autumn Roses

Kia Ora and Welcome Back

Time for Inspiration Wednesday from Heartfelt Creations.  I have two cards up today and I will put them on separate posts to be easier to read and follow my instructions.

The first card I am featuring is a card that has a very autumnal/wintery feel to it for those in the northern hemisphere.  The warm fire looks very inviting with the frost around the windows and on the flowers.

I have done these roses before here,  but this time I used different colours and when I frosted them with Rajni Chawla’s Frosting Powder they looked like autumn roses touched with a heavy frost.


Materials Used: 

HCPC-3752 Classic Rose stamp

HCD1-7110 Classic Rose die

HCD1-7111 Classic Rose Vines die

HCPC-3753 Classic Rose Vines stamp

  4. Stamp the window using image from the HCPC-3794 Window Frame Stamp using Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock and die cut using the coordinating die.  Sponge the window with a combination of Rhubarb Stalk and Potter’s Clay and inks.   Cut a piece of clear cardstock 3 ½” x 2 ½” and adhere behind the window. Adhere the window to the coloured image.  Add the frosted look to the window using Dries Clear glue and Frosting Powder.  Adhere to the card front as shown.
  5. Cut the decorative die from the HCD1-750 Window Box Elements Die in white cardstock and sponge with Rhubarb Stalk and Potter’s Clay and adhere to the top of the window.
