Gardening is NOT a talent I possess. My husband is the green thumb and loves getting his hands in the dirt…and I let him. When it comes to the roses (and the last three homes we’ve lived in have multiple rosebushes), they are the exception: I do enjoy pruning and cultivating the bushes to keep them healthy and producing blossoms that grace my table as long as it’s blooming season.
To a Wild Rose stamp set was designed by Million Dollar Demonstrator Mary Ellen Byler and is a Distinktive 2- or 3-step stamp set, enabling you to get many different looks with one stamp set, so we can enjoy roses all year long!
One night I played around with color combinations for these flowers: You can see that I stamped the boldest rose image in the lighter color with the highlights in a darker color over the top. When you add the outline image, it gives it a completely different look. Which do you like best: With or without the outline?
I needed some new birthday cards for my team, so I started with just the first two images and stamped these cards (added the outline on the envelope):
If you are part of my team…pretend to be surprised when your birthday card arrives!
Then I decided that it would look gorgeous on Very Vanilla card stock, too so I tried it with the detail image and they both are abso-bloomin’-lutely gorgeous cards:
