How to Stamp a 'Picture Perfect' Rose

Happy Tuesday!

In April I posted this card and my good blog friend, Lisa, asked for a tutorial on stamping the rose. I apologize for the delay in posting the tutorial, but sometimes life gets in the way. Anyhoo, better late than never, right?!?!? 

So, here goes:

I used the Picture Perfect stamp set, which is on page 22 of the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.

This is a multi-step stamp set and each step is numbered (hope you can see the number printed on the sheet next to each image stamp).

I used a Sharpie on the acrylic blocks to number the stamps for you. Note that the stamps have a notch on them so you can place each one in the same direction on your blocks.

Now, I don't want to confuse you, but I find it easier to stamp in reverse order! For the first step, I stamped the #3 image with Melon Mambo.

For the second step, I again used Melon Mambo, but stamped off once.

Lastly, I used Pink Pirouette.

That's all there is to stamping a 'Picture Perfect rose!

Thanks for stopping by!
