I love roses! I just do. My front garden is filled with roses. So when I saw this gorgeous rose stamp that is part of the new Healing Hugs stamp set, I had to have it!
The rose and the leaves here are special stamps called “DistINKtive” stamps. They are created in a special way to look more realistic than other rubber stamps. And aren’t they gorgeous? For my card today I stamped two roses in Berry Burst ink and then stamped another rose on a separate piece of Whisper White card stock using Blushing Bride ink. I cut that rose out and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals in between the other two.

Pretty Pointer: Sometimes it’s hard to tell which colors look best with others. For example, for this card I wasn’t sure which green would look best for the leaves. If this happens to you, just do what I do! I stamped the leaves on a separate piece of card stock using the different greens I had available. Then I held the piece of card stock up to the stamped roses to determine which leaves looked best. I decided on the Old Olive ink…what do you think?
Once I chose the color for the leaves, I stamped two sets of leaves on the card stock panel with the roses, and stamped another set on a separate piece, just like I did with the rose. I fussy cut those leaves out and then curled them a bit with my bone folder. I attached them with Multipurpose Liquid Glue under the raised up rose. I think it looks like the leaves are coming up off the paper!
