A Rose is a Rose

Don't forget the blog candy below!I hope that everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend! I did not get to stamp unfortunately, I did a little bit of scrapbooking but I still have to finish titles and journaling to complete the pages. I did a lot of running around over the weekend, preparing for Lily's 1st birthday party this weekend. Today, we had a little picnic in the park. Anyhow, on to the card. I used my SU Rose is a Rose stamp set. I stamped the rose in Riding hood red and Rose red. The leaves are kiwi kiss and the sentiment is Verve stamps in chocolate. The dp is Bella Rose layered with chocolate, kiwi kiss and riding hood red. I accented it with this pretty kiwi kiss ribbon. I love how this came out and my 2 step rose came out perfectly because I used my stamp-a-ma-jig. Can you believe that I have had this for 10 years and this is the first time I've every used it? It made my rose come out perfectly. I am so happy because usually I have very iffy success with these type of stamps! The other thing that I did with this card is that I stamped a second rose and cut out parts of the rose and layered it onto the original rose with dimensionals so it looks a little more realistic! Enjoy!

Pin It Now!
