Roses Roses Roses… I love roses.. Roses in my Garden, Roses on cards, Stamps, Rose Patterned paper.. Roses in a Vase.. you name it, I love them, so I am sure you can see why I love this Rose Garden Thinlit die NEW from Stampin' UP! on pg 18 of the 2016 Occasions Catalog!!
Watch the video below in this blog post for all the details, but in a nutshell, I die cut the rose die using Gold Foil Paper and glued it to Watercolor Paper, then used my AquaPainter, Wink of Stella Pens and Stampin' UP! Ink Refills to watercolor in the image!! They dry very sparkly and beautiful!!!
You can "wipe off" the tips of the Wink of Stella pens and keep using them in different colors, or, you can have a couple pens on hand and use one for reds, one for greens, one for purples, one for yellow. That's what I'm doing. Then I won't "waste" the product by wiping off to change colors.
Watch the Video Below for all the info!

Below.. the sample with the Wisteria and Razzleberry ink has a rose die cut with the Silver Foil paper instead of the gold!

Need a Stampin' Up! catalog?
Hi Patty, I’m like you I love, love, love Roses. Roses up our driveway, around the house, that’s my favorite flower. I watched your video, you always do such a good job explaining everything. I needed some more ideas on how to use the Wink of Stella pens that I previously ordered from you. Your colors are fantastic. GREAT video! Carol
Hi Patty, I LOVE your video. I ordered this set through a party and I can’t wait to get it. It’s my very favorite set in the new catalog. My set should be coming soon. I am definitely going to try this technique. I ordered the clear Wink of Stella brush from your Free Form but not the gold one because I wasn’t sure how I would use it. Thank you, now I know,so the Gold one will be on my next order. Your card is Beautiful. I have a question. If I emboss do I have to be real careful that the colors don’t run over the embossing? I can’t wait to try this. Thank you and have a great day. I also would like more ideas on how to use these brushes.
I will be ordering this set this week. I love your cards and the technique. I will be trying this for sure.
I love your videos, Patty! I learn something new with each one. You also have a quiet, gentle way about you that makes it relaxing to watch these! Unlike you, I do not have a green thumb, so all the flowers at our home are stamped ones (hmmmm….wonder if I can stamp a flower garden out in my yard? :D).
What a wonderful technique! Now I have to have that bundle. I thought I could wait to see if it makes it into the annual catalog but I HAVE to try this technique! It is so beautiful. You say that you have one Wink of Stella for reds, another one for greens, etc. Do you find that you still have to take off some of the color if you are going from a darker shade to a lighter one? I’d love to see a rose done with Blackberry Bliss and perhaps Perfect Plum.
Hi Patty-Love your Roses and your instructions! I am hoping SU comes out with different colors of the Wink of Stella pens!
I loved your video and this set was already on my wish list. Hopefully next time I order I can get this set along with the wink of stella! Keep up the great videos
Very nice. I wonder if they will come out with an Orchid set in the future. I guess though, it’s easier to play with the rose shape for varieties of colors. I love your samples – they really extend your instructional tips and give us more ideas for how to use the technique! Thank you!
I am so impressed with your beautiful roses!! I am usually a gold, orange, yellow, red type of person, but I have to say the rose done in the purplish hues is just so wonderful!! Such beautiful cards, and once again thank you for your videos that you do so well. Your instructions are so precise and clear to follow. Thanks again for all you do for us. I love seeing you every day.
Hi Patty! These are beautiful & I certainly want to try them. I have a question though. After you are finished do you have to “clean” your Wink of Stella pen in any way? Thanks so much!
Try red foil with some pink inks maybe?
These are so beautiful. I can’t decide which colors I want to try first, but I know I will be trying this technique. Roses are my favorite, a love a got from my Mother. She always had beautiful roses and I’m working to have some myself.
Thank you for sharing this technique!
Wow! Loved your video and card. I definitely want to try that technique. So beautiful – all the color combinations you used.
Wow those cards are beautiful! I’ve tried water color roses before and they seem to look muddy to me when I do them I don’t know what I’m doing wrong but I’m going to try it again and see if I can catch my mistakes. I also wanted to tell you when I use the tombow glue on thin cuts like the rose I put it glue side down on a piece of scrap paper for just a second to get any excess glue off then put it on my project, this way I don’t have glue oozing out on my project. Just a thought, you might want to try it! 😉 Have a great day!
Love Love Lovely………………innovative and lovely. Thanks for the new ideas~
Loved your video on water coloring with Wink of Stella. How do you clean the color ink off the tips so you can use the original color of the Wink of Stella?
Enjoyed your video and loved the colors you used. I have been using the Wink of Stella for over a year now and just love it. Thanks for sharing this technique.
Patty, I love your cards and video. When I was growing up, we had 2 rose bushes with those 2 colors. Maybe they were the same breed, but they were my favorite! I definitely will be making this card. Love it!
Hi Patty, I just watched your video and your water coloured roses using the Wink of Stella are beautiful. Thank you for the video. I love roses too and my Dad had a rose called Double Delight which has always been my favourite. It not only looked gorgeous but the fragrance was devine! I was curious about your Whisky Mac rose so I googled it and found this link where you can buy it the US and thought you may be interested – https://www.dobbies.com/products/plants/rosa/rosa-whisky-mac/.
Oops, sorry Patty! Wrong link. Here’s the correct one: https://au.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080301092410AAW7DwN

Vintage Gardens in California apparently will graft it for you for around $45. Maybe the best solution as others report it not being very hardy.
Hi Patty, This is a beautiful card and I love the options of colors we have with all the SU! ink refills! I did have a question, did you have a Wink of Stella pen for each of the colors or can it be cleaned to use with multiple colors. Does the color stay on the brush or can it be cleaned off?
thanks be well – Vanessa
Thanks Patty for the tips on this watercolor technique with the Wink of Stella pens….super idea! Your rose turned out beautiful!
Love the colors and the techniques! I enjoyed your older post showing the water color float techniques. Thanks for the inspiration!
LOVE this card and technique! Definitely trying it for my August classes. You are SO inspiring!
Hi Patty, love the tutorial and like you I love Roses. I live in UK and have a Whiskey Mac Rose in my garden. I believe you can still buy it here if you want me to try and get one for you . Jenny x
Wow, just beautiful, love the shimmer and gold!
