Some Candy!! & Tips on Stamping on Dark Paper

I'm loving this 3-Step Rose Set!! I know you will too:)
So many of you had questions about my WT 150 card so I thought it would be fun to have the 3-Step Rose set as blog candy!!! Maria owner of Kitchen Sink Stamps will mail the winner a brand new set. Thanks so much Maria!!
To enter all you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling me what type flower you'd like made into a stamp 3-Step Kitchen Sink Style? One winner will be drawn using random org. Jan 31st. The winner needs to email me your address so Maria can ship it to you. If the winner has not claimed the set by Feb 2nd on Feb 3rd I will draw a new name. I'm excited to see your flower ideas. Good luck everyone!!

I hope this answers the questions I've gotten. I took a few pictures so you can see what your card should look like as you go. I find the best way to apply the paint is with a foam brush. Really work the paint into the brush and wipe off any excess paint on paper towels. Apply the paint to stamp ( Step 1 ) stamp it onto your dark colored card stock I used Choc Chip. Clean off your stamp with a wet towel and let the image dry completely. Since these stamps are on acrylic blocks it's easy to stamp the image again. Repeat Step 1. Clean stamps. Let dry completely. The first picture shows you while the paint is still wet it is very white but as it dries it lightens. The next three pictures show you how it looks as you add the steps. The finished card can be seen here




This is really fun to do. I hope you will try it. If you do please post a link to your card. I would love to see them. Feel free to email me if you have more questions.
Thanks for stopping by:)

Oh my word! I could WIN the roses set? Would I love that! I can think of all kinds of flowers I would love to see in 3 step: peonies, marigolds, pansies, zinnias, geraniums, tulips, clematis. Can you tell I love flowers? Thanks for a chance to win.

tulips,daisies and clematis would be wonderful! Thanks for the chance to win... and thanks for the tutorial!!!

Allison said...

Wow Dee! This is awesome! Someone sent me some paint today and I was at a loss on how to use it...this is the ticket!

A three-step flower? Hmm...daisies? I don't know how that would play but I know I could color them about a bajillion different ways!

Anonymous said...

Gorgeous roses! I have three I think would be pretty-dahlia, peony and daylily.

TFS all your lovely creations-all are just beautiful.

Elaine said...

OMG that is sooo neat!!!! I love tulips and freesias!! Both spring flowers!! :)
A rhododendron would be great because there are soooo many variations on color though!!

Jackie said...

I would love to win that set!!! Your card is beautiful! I'd like to see zinnias, pansies and tulips in a 3 step set. And hibiscus, too! oh yeah, hydrangeas as well. I think that's all :-)

Kathi Carlson said...

I'm speechless yet again today! WOW! As for what flower I'd like to see made into a stamp set - the hydrangea! I'd love to win the rose set, but if I don't, I'm going to have to buy it - all because of you!! TFS.

Denise... said...

Oh my...stunning...beautiful...amazing...those are the words that popped in my head looking at your card! Zowie. Anyway...iris flowers...oh yea! They'd be perfect. Of course, gerber daisies would be incredible as well.

joystamper said...

the roses are beautiful. the tutorial is clear and detailed. thank you so much...how about tulips hibiscus or a peony would be lovely.thank you for a chance to win. I do love stamping flowers of all kinds.kmills2@ec.rr.com

Jan Scholl said...

Oooh I gotta say Jasmine. And make a pot of embossing powder that smells like it too (I am feeling sad as my crazy dog ate my jasmine plant and knocked over my trellis holding it.)

Marsha said...

This is the most beautiful Rose stamp I have ever seen. Love it.
Would gladiolus (sp) be a good flower to stamp? Or a tiger lily?

Tracy.H said...

Wow! This is amazing...and so is your blog! Okay...this is an easy one for me, but not sure how it would play out with a stampset. Plumeria...my absolute favorite flower! :0)

Cathy M said...

Wow your tutorial was awesome and very easy to follow. The roses are beautiful. Wow count me in on this sweet candy! Any kind of flower would be cool doing 3 steps to. I'm going to say tulips, geraniums, and pansies are a few I would like to see. Thanks for a chance.

stamp and scrape said...

Thank you for this offer, and the very clear tutorial - I love the 3D efect you make with the building up of colour layers. An iris or pansy would work well, or even a sunflower. Or echinacea. The list could go on...

chica21b said...

WendyP said...

Wow, this is stunning! I wouldn't have known that was stamped if you hadn't of explained the process. I would have thought you painted it freehand. gorgeous!

How about some poinsettas? I'm already thinking Christmas cards and think they would be stunning.

shel9999 said...

Great tutorial, Dee! Your roses are absolutely amazing! Hmmm...flowers....how about Gerber Daisies or hydrangeas?

Denise said...

You make that look so easy! It's beautiful. I would love to see a Lily! Thanks for the chance to win the set!

Char- said...

Thanks for this chance to win. I would love to see clematis made into a stamp.

Mikesgal said...

Great tutorial! I wondered how you did that! I think a clematis 3 step stamp would be nice. The petal shapes are so pretty and when they open up you can really see all the different colors inside.

Angel W said...

GORGEOUS!! Love your tutorial! I would love to see Lilacs. They're my fav!

NormaJ said...

This is absolutely beautiful Dee.
I think these would be extra special cards for someone close to you. I think a flower that would look just lovely would be freesia.
They have a colour range in them and are suitable for off the cuff colour too.

Melissas said...

These flowers are so beautiful. I have seen many samples using them and I can't believe how life-like they look! Wow!! I would LOVE to see tulips or lilacs in a 3-step set. Thanks for sharing :)

Cindy Vernon said...

I think tulips would be fabulous. Thanks for the tutorial, now I have to try it!

Laura said...

I have to go with hydrangias and Tulips. Or another rose set with cabbage roses! Thanks for the awesome tutorial. The roses are **gorgeous**.

Linda SS said...

I appreciate the tutorial as I think that roses are the most difficult of all flowers. I don't remember ever seeing a stamp with baby's breath and I think they look so precious in a vase with roses.

Gerriann said...

These are wonderful! Tulips are my choice too!

Donna said...

These stamps are so gorgeous and you showcase them so beautifully. I would LOVE to see a tulip set and would purchase it instantly!!

Colleen said...

Great tutorial, thanks. My vote is for Peonies.

Beautiful rose! Thanks for the great tutorial. My favorite flowers are coneflowers!

Yosha said...

You are slaying me with these 3 step stamp sets. I am determined to own one this year!! Hopefully there will be a sale at some time!!

As for the flowers, I'd say Peonies would look great as a set!

Thank you so much for the chance to win a set,

Cheers

Susan Mezias said...

Your work is beautiful! Can't wait to try the roses I got! I think iris' would be wonderful! (it's so hard to choose one!) Thanks for the opporutnity. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Ghazal(ghazal_31005@yahoo.com) said...

Deb Neerman said...

Lilac's!

Thanks for the opportunity to win this beautiful set!

Jillabella said...

This set is stunning and you have created gorgeous cards with it, it's definitely a "must have". I would love to see KSS make a 3-step calla lily, pansy or hydrangea. I bet all three of those would be fabulous!

Leslie Miller said...

You're doing the MOST amazing things with this set! Thank you so much for this fabulous tutorial!! Maria is such an artist and can draw anything beautifully. I think hydrangeas or bleeding hearts would be wonderful as three step stamps!

malieta said...

Hi Dee!
I love roses but I am partial to tulips. When spring finally arrives, just looking at tulips makes my heart sing. They are truly a beautiful flower. I wish I had a green thumb, I am terrible with plants and flowers.
malieta:)

JAR said...

Wow! Great tutorial and such a beautiful card! I would like to see lilacs! I have them all along my property and love the scent in the spring!

Michele said...

WOWEEE! Your roses are beautiful! That set is amazing! Like amy others before me, I'd love tulips. I think lillies would alo be lovely!

Jessie/knightrone said...

This is an awesome stamp set!!! So realistic looking. I don't know much about flowers, but I think a geranium would be awesome!! Thanks for this opportunity.

Connie said...

Wow! Those roses look REAL! I'd love to see Peony's done up...nice full ones. You don't see many stamps for them.

StampinLDRN said...

Wow~these are beautiful. Lots of time. Great results. Thanks for the tutorial. Thank you for the chance to win. I think that pansieswould be good. My favorite flower is the Calla Lily. I don't know how that would work. Thanks again for the chance to win.

Anita said...

What a beautiful technique. I can't wait to try it!

Geraniums would look awesome!

Bernice said...

Can you imagine a four step hibiscus? Look down into the exotic pinks and yellows in that flower and be mesmerized. I would love that stamp!

SharonK said...

It's so hard to pick just one ... so I'll pick two of my favorites: iris and lilies.
Cheers!

JoAnn said...

I love the depth that KSS achieves the the 3-step stamps! I think a tulip, peony, or zinnia stamp set would be nice.

I would love to see tulips, sunflowers, hydrangeas or some kind of orchid as a 3-step stampset.
