Even though the Holiday Catalog just went live and we should probably be talking about all the wonderful holiday goodies, the roses in my garden are blooming in the warmth of the Southern California sun, and I want to celebrate that!!
So today’s card uses the beautiful Graceful Garden stamp set! The rose stamp in this set is SO SO pretty! And, there’s a great background stamp too. Here’s a new video to show you how to use this set!
The Stamparatus is one of my go-to tools. I’ve been using it more and really like the way my images come out when I use it. And there are very few mistakes because I can re-stamp if the image isn’t clear!
Here are some close ups of the cards from the video:
This rose stands out beautifully against the background. It’s such a beautiful stamp!

These little beauties are just too much fun! It’s amazing how card stock turns into flowers so quickly!
It all starts with the Succulent Framelit Dies. You die cut the flower pieces and start sponging the edges…by the time you layer the pieces on top of each other you have a gorgeous little succulent!
Do you believe this one started with Pool Party card stock? Soft Suede and Rich Razzleberry ink morph it into something very real looking! (You can see some of the Rich Razzleberry ink on my fingers!!)
They turned out so pretty that I had to make an arrangement! I had a little tiny pail I’d been saving for I don’t know what, and I stuffed it with some moss and just set the succulents on top! To make it permanent, I think I might stick the flowers to the moss with a hot glue gun…but that’s for another day.
You’ve got to try these! I was a bit hesitant at first, but they go together super-fast, so give them a try! And, right now you can get a special gift for your qualifying order. Go for it 🙂
Oh, I almost forgot, during the month of March I’m giving away a little something extra, so be sure to take advantage of that too! It’s a great time to get some Stampin’ Up!

Oh my goodness! This Birthday Blooms Stamp Set is so beautiful! Don’t you agree?
The Blender Pen is your best friend when coloring a gorgeous stamp like this rose. It allows you to give the shading that makes this flower so realistic. The flower and leaves were stamped in Memento Black Ink and then colored with the Blender Pen. The flower and leaves were fussy cut and then raised up with dimensionals.
Do you see the little bit of doily hidden under the lower section of the flower? Just a bit of added sweetness! The background here is some Watermelon Wonder ink lightly painted with an Aqua Pen. The key is the Shimmery White Paper, it’s made for watercoloring and has tiny little sparkly flecks that can be seen in the light! So pretty!

For You. Such a great sentiment. You can use it for anything: birthday, sympathy, hello, Valentine’s Day, anything!! Add some gorgeous flowers and you have the perfect card!
So I love these flowers. They are made using the Botanical Builder Framelit Dies. I love the way they cut the petals right out leaving a little flower frame. Then you just pop those insides up for these fabulous 3-D flowers! There are also dies for the centers of the flowers. And, what do you think about these lacy leaves? Everything you see is created with the Botanical Builder Framelits and the Botanical Blooms stamp set ~ a fabulous bundle offered by Stampin’ Up!
Today a group of stampers are getting together and each of us is bringing a card for everyone to make. This is the card I’m bringing ~ along with all the supplies to make it. I really wanted to show my friends this fabulous set. Now each person is bringing a card for the others to make, so I’ll come home with quite a few pretty cards, and I’m hoping to post them here for you to see!
So, for the last day of Pink Week I had to use a black and white striped background. I love black and white stripes. They are kind of a thinn over at Kate Spade shops. I’ve always moved black and whet stripes, and this card gave me enough room to do t!
These great stripes were created using the Decoratve Masks, Stripes.. I used sponge daubers to apply the ink to the paper using the Basic Black Inc. I’m so loving these Botanical Builders Dids. You can make so much with them!
It was so much fun to run the different colors of pink through the aching and look how it ca=me out! For the sentiment, I just used little stripes of white card stock, a piece of Melon Mambo card stock, and a little piece of Pool Party Glitter Ribbon (gorgeous!). A little portion of a Tea Lace Paper Doily and a few sequins finish it off.
Thanks so much for joining me for PINK WEEK here on the blog. It’s been so much fun to use my favorite color in every card. Don’t forget about Sale-a-Bration: order $50 in product and get a Sale-a-Bration item FREE!! Just click the Shop Now button above and check everything out!
Do you ever try to make a card shown in the catalog? I do 🙂 It’s called “case” or “casing,” and this care is cased from page 37 of the Occasions Catalog (click the catalog on the right to check it out!). Mine turned out a little bit different, but I’m just crazy about it.
Both the rose and the leaves are stamped in a 3-step process using 3 different stamps to create the multidimensional effect. Doesn’t it look realistic? It’s easier to do than I expected, and so much fun to see it come to life as you stamp another layer. Here is a video which shows how it works:
Did you notice this is a photopolymer stamp set? Think clear, see through, easy to do the 3-step process!
