Christmas Rose Birthday Card Duo

Today I’m sharing these simple cards which have helped bump up my birthday card stash. They took just ten minutes to make each and you could make them in any colour.

I chose to use Blueberrry Bushell and Lovely Lipstick for these cards but you could use any colour you like.

To add a little interest I’ve added a strip of the 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon to each card. The greeting comes from the Seaside Notions stamp set and is popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Floral Friday: Christmas Rose Wedding Card

Today I’ve used the Christmas Rose stamp set to create a wedding card. I’ve gone far away from the colours in the Christmastime Is Here Suite and focused on colours from my own wedding.  I used Blackberry Bliss and Gold for my own wedding stationary, here I’ve added in Mint Macaron as a green for the foiliage.

I stamped the Chrsitmas Rose in Versamark and embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I coloured the roses with both Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends and the leaves in a mix of Light Shaded Spruce and Dark Mint Macaron which gave them a two-tone effect which I really like.  I used a few drops of Golden Glitz Delicata Reinker and a Blender pens to colour in the berries on the image.

I added some interest to the Mint Macaron background layer by stamping the inner berry stamp in a random pattern all over with Versmark ink. I then added a strip of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon across the middle before adhering onto the Gold Foil layer.

I stamped the greeting from Beautiful Bouquet onto the large frame from the Roses die set and added this to the card. I then added my rose diecut over the top. I finished the card off with some of the Gold Glitter Enamel Dots which I am loving and seem to be putting on every thing I make.

I’m loving all the products in the Christmastime Is Here Suite and actually how versatile they are as I don’t think this card looks Chrismassy at all do you?

Roses & Ribbon Christmas Card

Today I’m sharing another card made with the Christmastime Is Here Suite of products, this time focusing on the paper with the smaller roses. This is a lovely sheet of paper and I wasn’t sure cutting up was the best decision butI wanted those small and roses seperate and I do have three more sheets to use up.

The gold edging on the background comes from one of the dies in the Roses collection, I just added along each edge of my backing paper so there was a little detail which sepreated in from the card base.

For the main part of the card I stamped the Merry Christmas greeting from the Christmas Rose stamp set in Golden Glitz Delicata Ink onto a Stiched Nested Label. Before I adhered this to my card I added a length of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon underneath the label to add some more interest and lift it from the background paper.

I finished the card off by adding my fussy cut roses to two corners of the label and then added a few of the smallest Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.

Purple Floral Essence Card

With this card I’m celebrating all things purple with a mix of Gorgoeus Grape, Highland Heather and Purple Posy. The main flower was stamped with Highland Heather and Purple Posy centres and a little pop of green with Granny Apple Green leaves.

I matted my stamped panel, which was a Stitched Rectangle onto a larger Stitched Rectangle. This was then adhered to a matt of 14.4cm x 10cm of Highland Heather. I then added a strip of the Gorgoeous Grape Mini Striped Ribbon across the front before it was stuck onto a card base of Whisper White measuring 14.9cm x 10.5cm.

I finished the card off with a greeting stamped in Gorgeous Grape on a Stiched Square.

A Little Lace Card Duo

Taking a break from the Christmas projects today I’m sharing a pair of cards made from the A Little Lace stamp set. I chose to keep these cards fairly simple with just Rococo Rose or Pretty Peacock with a tiny hint of Crumb Cake on the ribbon.

Rococo Rose A Little Lace Card

I used the Basket Weave 3D embossing folder to give the background some subtle texture and used the Stitched Rentangle and stitched Shape die sets for matts for the main floral image and for my sentiment. A little length of the Scalloped Linen Ribbon adds some more texture and a pop of colour from the Crumb Cake.

Pretty Peacock A Little Lace Card

As a final touch to each card I added some of the 2019-2021 In Colour Facet Dots to the centres of each flower.

Hope you like todays project and pop back soon

Wild Rococo Rose Friendship Card

Don’t you just love this gorgeous rose image, it comes from the stamp set To A Wild Rose and was designed by Mary Ellen Byler who is one of Stampin’ Up! Million dollar sales acheivers, I think she’s done a fantastic job with this set.

This stamp set is a two-step stamp set meaning you build up various stamping layers to create one image, you may only end up with one flower and leaf combination but the design possibilities with the images are endless.

Today I’ve gone very simple and used just one flower as my focal point with a couple of leaves to add some colour contrast.

I chose a colour scheme of Rococo Rose and Old Olive which match the roses in my own garden. By stamping off the Rococo Rose on some scrap paper the bottom layer of the rose is lighter, which adds some lovely dimension.

I’ve embellished the centre of the rose with a few pearls just to give some additional interest to the card.

To finish the card the greeting was stamped on a whisper white stitched rectangle which I think lifts the rose from the background paper from the Woven Threads DSP.

What’s your favourite colour combination for roses, I’d love to know?

Beautiful Bouquet Wedding Card

Today I’m sharing a card I made for my friends wedding on saturday. I chose the Beautiful Bouquet stamp sets are its one of my favourites and I don’t think you can make a bad card with it. I chose a colour scheme of Blushing bride, Rococo Rose and Mint Macaron. I love how good Rococo Rose and Blushing Bride look together, perfect partners in my opinion.

I stamped my greeting on the large detailed frame from the Stitched Labels Dies. I then build up my bouquet at the left hand side.  I added some of the Gold Metallic pearls to the centres of the flowers, I can’t seem to put these down at the moment.

For the card base I used one of the Bird Ballard Laser Cut Cards as a base with a layer of Blushing Bride on the inside. I love this card and hope my friend and her new husband do too.
