Project #3 Using SOTM Rose Wonder PLUS a chance to win!

Hello Friends!

I logged in tonight to look for a stamp set that I wanted to get for a friend and it was gone. But it was there last night. So if you see anything on the list that you may want to get, do not wait! It will be gone!! To see the Retiring list of product, simply click here. Retiring product will only be available until May 31st or while supplies last!!

Okay today I am bringing you the third project using this month's stamp of the month, Rose Wonder ID#140697Rose wonder comes from the Occasions catalogue and can be found on my website HERE.  This stamp set is beautiful and I have been having so much fun creating with it! It also has matching thinlit dies too, but I only used one of the thinlits for today's project. 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 what I made for you. A set of six cards measuring 4 1/4 by 4 1/4. 

 I wanted to go for the monochromatic look so I kept that in mind when creating these cards. I decided to pull out Blackberry Bliss #133642, Delightful Dijon #138327 and Pool Party #126982 cardstock and inks. I started off with a 4 1/4 by 9 inch piece of cardstock and then scored it at 4 1/4 to make really cute 4 1/4 by 4 1/4 sized cards. So to make the cards, I decided to also cut down some Whisper White cardstock #100730 to 3 1/4 by 4 1/4 as I wanted the layer to be the same length of the card base and down in the center. I then took this layer and created my own background paper with the cute little single flower from the Rose Wonder Stamp set #140697 . I inked up the flower in the same ink color as the card base. I also did second generation stamping for this. Basically what that means is that you ink up your stamp and stamp it down, and then immediately stamp it down again to get the lighter color from that second take. I really liked the look that it gave against the crisp white background. Here is a closer look at the second generation stamping. 
Also in the Rose Wonder stamp set, comes a cute label stamp which is what you see that I have used to pair up with my sentiments. I did use the thinlit label die to cut out matching color labels to adhere my stamped labels on and I did this by using a couple Dimensionals ID#104430. I ended up using three of the sentiments from this set, "Thank You", "With Sympathy" and "Happy Birthday", each stamped in the same coordinating ink as their card base. So I ended up with two of each card. Here is a look at the inside of the "With Sympathy" card. This sentiment is also from the Rose Wonder stamp set. 
Well that is it for today. I hope you can see just how gorgeous this set is and all the many ways you can use it. Here are a few more photos.
