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.
