Petal Pink Rose Birthday - Stampin' Up! To a Wild Rose

   I was out and about early this morning doing all sorts of errands so I'm just getting to my stamping business now.  Better late than never!

  My card today is inspired by the current Global Design Project challenge.  It's a fun set of colors; Soft Sea Foam, Petal Pink, Night of Navy.  As much as I wanted to use one of my new stamp sets for the focus of the card To a Wild Rose was just calling to be inked up with these colors.  I did use a few new items though can you spot them?


  The card starts with a Whisper White thick base and then a layer of the new Well Suited DSP with the corners rounded.  All the prints in this pack are excellent for masculine cards and are meant to be paired with the Well Suited suite but can also work really well with non-suit themed cards.  On my card it makes for a nice background for the lovely Petal Pink rose and Soft Sea Foam leaves.

  Another new item I used is the sentiment which is from the Many Messages stamp set.  I didn't get the big one piece die that coordinates with this set since I have a lot of dies and punch shapes that are sized to fit sentiments of this size and the Tasteful Labels dies are one of them which I used to highlight this sentiment.  I also cut apart all the sentiments in the Many Messages set.  It brought back many memories of trimming the stamp sets with special rubber scissors and adhering them to the wood blocks as we used to have to do in the olden stamping days lol!  Being able to grab one sentiment at a time just fits with my style of creating better than having a whole big background to have to manage.  Never be afraid to trim or cut apart your stamps for your ease of use.  I've found that if stamps don't work as practically as I need them to I just end up not using them at all and that's just a waste.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
