Won't You come in to my Garden?

Hi there,

Today I'm here to share with you my first June Reveal card. I used the sentiment and rose from the My Wild Rose Set 898, along with a stencil and some of the new Nuvo Mica Mist Silver Smoke to create my card today.

I actually only used the sentiment and the single rose from the set as I wanted to try out the new Nuvo Mists with a stencil. I began with spraying the Silver Smoke Mica Mist through a stencil (TCW Mini Butterfly Meadow) on to white cardstock. These Mica Mists have a lovely pearly sheen to them.

I then tried it on black cardstock.

Since I couldn't decide which version I liked better, I decided to use both. I tore the white piece diagonally and attached it on top of the black version. I used 1/4" Tear-ific Tape around the edges and some Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive along the ripped edge to make sure it would lie flat and match up well.

I used the left-over sprayed piece of the black cardstock for the sentiment, as I loved the mottled look. So the piece of scrap cardstock was put in the Stamp Platform and stamped with Nuvo Clear Mark and was then heat embossed with White Detail.

I then ran it through the Tangerine with the Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles die.

I then stamped the single rose from the set on to pink card with Nuvo Clear Mark ink and heat embossed with Black Detail. This was then fussy cut using the 5" Mini Scissors.

The card was assembled with the sprayed background being layered to the same pink cardstock that I stamped the rose on. Then the sentiment was added with Craft Perfect Foam Pads. Two little pink roses were then tucked in behind the sentiment and the stamped rose.

Nuvo Crystal Drops Party Pink were then added to the little flower ends.

... and that finished off my card for today.

Here is a list of the products that I used for my card, most of which can be found in the Sparkle N Sprinkle store:

My Wild Rose Set 898
White Detail (EP298)
TCW Stencil Mini Butterfly Meadow
Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles
2 roses

  4. Wow! Amazing use of the Mist, Shona, and I especially like that you've done it twice to create the black and white theme. Your card reminds me of a tux or a prom with the colors, and the little roses are similar to a boutonniere. Thanks, again, for teaching me so much through your photos and sharing. Enjoy your time with Mum and Dad! xx

  5. WOW! I love that you used the black and the white card after misting, what a wonderful effect, then to add the pink, just GORGEOUS. Seems that I may have to go and see if I can get a few things from around here.

  6. I'll echo Faith's WOW! This is gorgeous, and so dramatic with the b&w and the gorgeous roses. I've not tried the Nuvo sprays yet, but you got some great results on both the black & white papers. Loved your idea of combining the 2 designs as you did. Adding the lovely silk roses over the stamped one, is another wonderful detail. I do like the nice shade of pink on the drops too! TFS & have a great weekend. Hugs

  7. WOW what an amazing color palette and I do love how effortlessly you use the Nuvo drops...I never can get them to work for me
