Rose Garden Thinlits
I’m so glad I decided to purchase the Rose Garden Thinlits and the coordinating Rose Wonder Stamp Set! It took me awhile to figure out how to incorporate the rose images into my card-making style, but today’s card represents me in a lot of ways.
I love layers and I loved layering the die-cut roses for today’s card. I think the layers give the card the right dramatic presence that I aim to provide with each card I make. Why be dull and boring when you can be chic and dramatic, right?! That’s how I like to approach my card designs and my fashion choices. I wouldn’t normally choose flowers and roses in my outfit choices, but I could make both things work with the right accessories. I feel like I was able to fall in love with the Rose Garden Thinlits because I was able to incorporate the coordinating colors of the Blooms and Bliss Designer Series Paper with the die-cut roses and the fun little pearl. The deep shade of purple spoke to me, too. (As a lifelong Donny Osmond fan, I love anything purple! Plus, the outfit that I wore to church on Sunday reminds me of this card.)
Speaking of being dramatic, Sahara Sand is the brown tone that officially coordinates with the Blooms and Bliss Designer Series Paper, but I chose to use the richer tones of Tip Top Taupe for my card base and for one of the rose dies. And speaking of the Blooms and Bliss Designer Series Paper, be sure to check out this post where I specifically feature the Blooms and Bliss DSP.
The Rose Garden Thinlits and the coordinating Rose Wonder Stamp Set are great additions to your stamping collection. Not only can you die cut the rose images, you can also die cut leaves and the frame for the sentiment. Speaking of the sentiment, look at all of the different occasions that the stamp set covers:
