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?

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.
For today’s card I’ve used Inspiring Iris again, I just love this stamp set, it reminds me of one of my old favourites Blooms & Wishes with the watercoloured flower effect. The end card today looked nothing like how it started in my head and my desk looks like a bomb has exploded as I’ve fussy cut flowers and die cuts strewn all over. but after considerably time stamping and cutting the end result is quite simple and I love it.
A couple of the stamped rose type flowers and a greeting and you have a gorgeous card. I’ve added a few Gold Metallic Pearls to the flowers centres just to add a little bling.
Rococo Rose I think is my new favourite colour (yes this does change on a weekly basis) but I loving how perfect it pairs up with Mint Macaron and Crumb two of my other favourites!
Have a lovely day yourselves.

Hiding on the inside cover of the Spring/Summer Catalogue the All That You Are stamp set might be one which you’ve over-looked, I know I did for a couple of months. It’s a stamp set which contains lovely floral images and the best thing is the two smaller flowers can be cut out with the First Frost dies which carried over from the Autumn/Winter catalogue.
I love the main floral image so wanted to highlight that by creating a very simple card, so out came my Stazon ink and water-colour pencils.
Using the Rectangle Stitched Dies to add a sentiment and some of the Black Cord finishes the card off and makes it look elegant.
After making an Anniversary card with the To Have and To Hold stamp set I decided to make a few more using other sets, so today I’m sharing this card made with the Wonderful Romance bundle.
This is part of the Floral Romance Suite which is perfect for all theings romanctic and wedding themed. There are some gorgeous embellishments in this suite but sadly they didn’t make it onto this card but look out for them on a project soon.
I used Lovely Lipstick and Soft Sea Foam as a colour scheme to show these products look gorgeous in any combination, not just those suggested in the suite.
To start the card I stamped and embossed three of the floral bunches on vellum. I then coloured them on the verse side using a mixute of Mossy Meadow with hints of Pineapple Punch for the leaves and Lovely Lipstick and Petal Pink on the flowers.
I used one full bunch of flowers for one side of my card and sections of the other two images I’d stamped on the other side so I ended up with more of the larger flowers. I love that you can cut the images up to create your own arrangements, don’t be afraid to experiment as thats part of the fun
I finished the card off with some Lovely Lipstick Enamel Dots in the centres of the flowers which really bring out the Lovely Lipstick.
I love how versatile this bundle is and think you should definielty consider it for your collection before its gone.
I wanted to share with you another card I’ve made with the Painted Seasons stamp set and matching framelits as this sets will no longer be available after Sunday as March 31st signals the end of this year’s Sale-A-Bration
I chose to use Gorgeous Grape as despite being a purple I haven’t really warmed to this colour yet, I think its because its more on the blue blue side of purple. It’s quite a bright colour when you see a full sheet of cardstock so I’ve toned it done by adding a vellum layer. The fancy edge at the bottom is cut using the Delicate Lace Egelits Dies which I think really adds a wow to this card.
The greeting comes from the More Than Word stamp set which has sentiments to co-ordinate with many of our Sale-A-Bration sets, this will also be gone after Sunday ao grab it while you can as it has a lovely mix of fonts. I stamped the greeting on a frame from the Stitched Label Framelits as I thought the edge work well with the lacy die.
To finish the card I added some leaves and one of those gorgeous flowers from the Painted Leaves stamp set, every time I stamp this flower I’m amazed by how much detail there is in just one stamp, its stunning!!
