Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Birthday Card

Good Morning! Today’s card is a floral birthday card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! To a Wild Rose cling stamp set. I think this is one of my favorite flower images and today I used it with the pretty floral lattice and label die cuts. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by embossing a piece of Whisper White cardstock in the Layered Leaves embossing folder and attached it to a Whisper White mat. Then I popped it on a Thick Whisper White card base with dimensionals.

I die cut the floral lattice from So Saffron cardstock and die cut the label from Whisper White cardstock. These are both from the Wild Roses dies that coordinate with the Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose stamp set. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set in So Saffron ink on the label. I attached these to the card. Then I stamped the large rose outline image using So Saffron ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I took the So Saffron Stampin’ Blends to color the flower, using the dark close to the center and under the petals, the light in the middle leaving the petal tips white. Then I cut it out with the coordinating die.

I colored the center with a Pumpkin Pie marker. I stamped the outline leaves using Shaded Spruce ink on Old Olive cardstock and cut them out with the coordinating die. I attached the leaves to the card and then attached the flower. I colored some seam binding ribbon from my stash with the So Saffron re-inker and water and made a bow. I tied a piece of the Polka Dot Tulle ribbon and attached it to the back of the bow and attached both to the label. I finished off the card with three clear small epoxy dots.

I decorated the inside of the card by stamping the outline rose image in So Saffron ink and did the same with the envelope.

This rose stamps beautifully when you use the other two stamps to layer the color on, so I was pleased at how pretty the flower came out with using just the outline stamp and coloring with Stampin’ Blends. Plus I love yellow roses, don’t you? Thanks for visiting!

Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Hello Card

Good Morning! Today I have a blue floral hello card featuring the Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose photopolymer stamp set. I also used the coordinating Wild Rose Dies and both of these come in the To A Wild Rose Bundle at 10% off!

My design for this card was inspired by the current challenge at the Global Design Project #196 (#GDP196) where we CASE (copy and selectively edit) the designer. Here is the inspiration project. Isn’t it beautiful!

You can find supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used. I started by die cutting the frame using the Stitched Rectangle dies on Thick Whisper White cardstock. I next took a piece of Whisper White cardstock and ran it through the Country Floral embossing folder and lightly sponging with Balmy Blue ink. I took the embossed piece and attached it to a Balmy Blue card base with snail adhesive. I took the floral frame and attached it to the card base with dimensionals so that it floats above the embossed piece.

I then started working on the floral arrangement. I stamped the large outline flower from the Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose stamp set in Balmy Blue ink on a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the other two large flower stamps also in Balmy Blue after stamping off once. I die cut it with the coordinating die and brushed it lightly with Wink of Stella to give it a little sparkle. Too bad it doesn’t show up in the picture. I die cut two of the floral outline shapes in Thick Whisper White and two of the outline leaves in Old Olive

I took a scrap of Vellum and brushed it with the embossing buddy and stamped the ‘hello’ greeting from the Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose stamp set in Versamark Ink and sprinkled it with silver embossing powder and heat set. When cool, I die cut it with the Stitched Nested Labels die.

I made a bow with the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle ribbon. I arranged the elements by attaching the die cuts to the back of the rose with glue dots. I added dimensionals to the back of the rose so that it would also float above the embossed background and I added glue from the fine tipped glue pen behind the die cuts where they would meet the frame. I attached the bow with glue dots. I finished off the rose with a glitter enamel dot and the background with Silver Metallic Pearls.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the flower three times on Whisper White after stamping off and masking. I attached the Whisper White panel to the inside of the card with snail. I decorated the envelope using the same stamping technique.

My sister and I have a thing that roses shouldn’t be blue because it’s not natural. But the rose is so pretty and the blue and white is so refreshing. Thanks for visiting!

I hope you have a wonderful 4th of July tomorrow!

Stampin’ Up! To a Wild Rose Hello Card

Good morning! Today’s card offers a sneak peek of a new stamp set and In-Color from the 2019 – 2020 Annual Catalog. The Stampin’ Up! To a Wild Rose stamp set is a Two-Step stamp set that features a large beautiful rose with set of three leaves and some great sentiments. It also comes with a set of dies and is offered as a bundle in the new catalog at 10% off (Yay!). The new In-Color is Rococo Rose and I used it on the flower, sentiment and card base. Here is the card.

The layout for my card is inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #389. It is simple and lets the stamped rose be the star!

I started by stamping the outline rose in the new In-Color, Rococo Rose. Then I stamped the fuller image in Rococo Rose after stamping off once. Finally I stamped the smallest image in Rococo Rose after stamping off once. I used the matching die cut to cut it out. I stamped two sets of the leaves in Mossy Meadow, first using the outline image full strength and then stamping off twice with the other two stamps. I also used the matching die to cut it out on my die cutting machine.

In the pictures below, you can see how the successive stamping builds up the rich color variations using Two-Step stamp designs (or three steps). You can also see the printer paper I used to stamp off the roses and leaves to get the lighter ink color using the same ink pad. The Stampin’ Up! ink pads are excellent for providing great coverage in a lighter color after stamping off.

You can also see how it’s relatively easy to align the different stamps with photopolymer stamps since they are fairly transparent.

I used the Tin Tile 3D embossing folder on a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and got the vintage texture which I attached to a Whisper White mat with snail.

I cut a piece of Whisper White Flax ribbon and attached it to the panel with glue dots. I stamped the hello sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! To a Wild Rose stamp set in Rococo Rose on a piece of crumb cake card stock and fussy cut around the letters. I arranged the leaves and attached them to the panel with multipurpose liquid glue which I also used to attach the sentiment to the leaves. I popped the panel on a Rococo Rose card base with dimensionals and popped the rose on with dimensionals as well. I finished the rose off with faux pearls, and a light touch of Wink of Stella.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the line image of the rose from the Stampin’ Up! To a Wild Rose stamp set in the bottom corner of a Whisper White panel after stamping off twice. I ran a piece of crumb cake through the Tin Tile 3D embossing folder and glued it to the bottom of the Whisper White panel with multipurpose liquid glue and attached it to the card base with snail.

The Stampin’ Up! To a Wild Rose stamp set provides great images of the rose and leaves. The sentiments are wonderful, and there are other dies that I didn’t even use in the Wild Rose die set including outline floral dies and a beautiful label. This promises to be a go-to set for a feminine floral card. These stamps and dies will be available on June 4, 2019 when the new 2019 – 2020 Annual Catalog goes live.

Thanks for visiting!

Let us remember and honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice this Memorial Day.
