Stamp Review Crew: Rose Wonder Stamp Set

Stamp Review Crew:  Rose Wonder Stamp Set Welcome!  If you are following along, you’ve arrived from Sue Plote’s blog.  Today’s Stamp Review Crew is all about one of my favorites!  The Rose Wonder Stamp Set has so many sentiments that you will definitely use this set all the time. Occasions: birthday wedding sympathy thanks friendship encouragement I’ve been in bed most of the week with the flu.  You know I’m really sick when I don’t feel up to stamping.  In fact, that is how my family gauges how sick I am – “is she stamping? no?  she must REALLY be sick!” Luckily, I created some cards with the Rose Wonder Stamp set a few months ago, so let’s revisit those cards today as part of this week’s Stamp Review Crew blog hop. On the “Wedding Wishes” card, I embossed the sentiment to give the card bling.  But do you see what I mean?  Look at the variety of events that are covered with this set: Not only is the Rose Wonder Stamp Set full of wonderful sentiments, it is a photopolymer set, which is my favorite type of stamp to use!  Why, you ask? Photopolymer stamps: * Are totally transparent for perfect image placement. * Have just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time. * Cling perfectly to Stampin’ Up!’s clear blocks so you don’t have to worry about slipping. * Save space—you need only one set of blocks for all your photopolymer stamps (blocks sold separately). * Come packaged in cases with images on the spine for easy storage and quick reference. Another fabulous advantage to owning the Rose Wonder Stamp Set is that you can also purchase the coordinating Rose Garden Thinlits Dies. Win! Thanks for visiting!  Be sure to check out the other fabulous creations on this week’s Stamp Review Crew blog hop!!!!

Rose Wonder Stamp Set

Rose Wonder Stamp Set I mentioned in my previous post that the Rose Wonder Stamp Set makes a wonderful addition to your stamping collection because of the many different sentiments that are included in the set.  Today’s card uses the “Happy Birthday” stamp and the Detailed Floral Thinlits, along with a piece of Blooms and Bliss Designer Series Paper. If you are looking for a go-to stamp set that you can use for a variety of cards and projects, the Rose Wonder Stamp Set is the stamp set for you.  In addition to birthdays, it covers sympathy, weddings, thank you, friendship, and encouragement.  When you pair the stamp set with the coordinating Rose Garden Thinlits Dies, you can add dimension to your projects, too.  However, I changed things up a bit today and used the intricate images from the Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies.  No matter what you use to make your cards, be sure to have the Rose Wonder Stamp Set in your collection so that you can grab the right stamp for whatever occasion you need!   Let’s revisit the Blooms and Bliss Designer Series Paper, too.  I love how the paper is versatile enough to make cards with completely different looks: Watch the slideshow to see the products I used to make today’s “Happy Birthday” card.  To order any of the products, just click on one of the pictures and you will be directed to my online store.

Rose Garden Thinlits

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: Take a look at the slideshow to see the products I used to create today’s “With Sympathy” card.  You can click on any image to be directed to my online store.
