April SOTM- Rose Wonder

Hello Friends!

  How are you all doing? I hope you have some gorgeous spring weather lurking outside your homes. Open up those windows and let the fresh air and sunshine come on in!

I am going to be trying something new. Each month I will be featuring one stamp set for the month. I will show you how to use these stamps in the way they were intended to be used as well as show you how to use them in ways you wouldn't think to use them. There will also be some giveaways and maybe even a tutorial or two. I will also show you how to mix and match two stamps sets together to make something beautiful :)

 So April's stamp set of the month is:
Rose Wonder ID #140697 $27.00

Rose Garden Thinlits Dies ID#140619 $31.00
Or Bundle and save 15%

Everyone who purchases the SOTM Bundle during the month of April,
will receive a free pack of Rhinestone Basic Jewels ID#119246 ($5 value)

If you do, I will not be able to see your information to send your free gift. 

 Rose Wonder Photopolymer Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!  Rose Garden Thinlits Dies by Stampin' Up!
Rose wonder comes from the Occasions catalogue and can be found on my website HERE.  Today I have a card to share with you using the coordinating Rose Garden thinlits Dies ID#140619. You may find the thinlits HERE or if you're like me and like to have stamps with their matching dies, you can also do the bundles. You can find the Rose Wonder and the Rose Garden thinlits Dies Bundle ID#140804 HERE . So here is the card I made for you today.
I used some Whisper White cardstock ID#100730 for my card base cut to size 5" by 7". My next layer uses some Basic Black cardstock ID#121045 cut down to size 4 3/4" by 5 3/4". My next layer is some pretty pink/white florals from our Love Blossoms DSP paper stack ID#140548 cut down to size 4 1/4" by 5 1/2". 

I took some Rose Red and Blushing Bride cardstock from our Love Blossoms Cardstock pack ID#140549 to cut out the roses and leaves from the Rose Garden thinlits dies. I cut the roses out 4 times, once in each of these four colors: Rose Red, Blushing Bride, Basic Black & Cucumber Crush. I ended up using the Basic black for my outline. Once all the teeny tiny pieces were cut out, I then assembled the pieces back into the outline, mixing the Rose red & Blushing bride, to get a blended color rose for the bigger rose. For the smaller rose, I used the Rose Red outline and kept all the pieces of the rose in Blushing Bride. I cut the leaves from the Cucumber Crush cardstock ID#138335 and put them back into the outline. The sentiment is just one of the many beautiful sentiments from the Rose Wonder stamp set and I stamped it along with the label stamp onto some whisper white with some Basic Black Ink ID#140931. I then die cut the label using the Rose Garden thinlits dies. To finish my card off, I used the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush ID#141897 over the top of the roses and then added some Crystal Effects ID#101055 over the roses to give it a shine and some sparkle!  That is it my friends! I hope you really like it. I cannot wait to show you how many different ways you can use this stamp set!
