Last night I created this “Step It Up” sequence of cards using the To A Wild Rose stamp set and Wild Rose Dies. This happens to be one of my favorite stamp sets to play with and I have been using it a lot lately.
I came across one of my Stampin Success* magazines from last year and saw these exact cards made. I followed the designs and recreated them on a Facebook Live (5/15/20). The first card in the sequence is considered a “beginner” card. It is created quite simply with a Daffodil Delight Cardstock base and a layer of Whisper White Cardstock. The flower is stamped in Daffodil Delight ink with the To A Wild Rose stamp set (this set is a two-step stamp set). It is stamped with a solid image and then another image on top that provides the two tone. The leaves are then stamped in the Granny Apple Green ink and the center is stamped with Crumb Cake ink. The sentiment is stamped and then popped up with Dimensionals. There are no embellishments on this card.
The second card in the sequence is “stepped up” with the Wild Rose die cut leaves and the Petal Pink Organdy Ribbon as well as a strip on the left/right sides of Daffodil Delight Designer Series Paper that is added.
The third card in the sequence has quite a few more embellishments. First, the base is embossed with the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder and then Shimmery White Cardstock is watercolored with the Pool Party Refill Ink and an AquaPainter. The leaves are stamped in Granny Apple Green ink and die cut with the Wild Rose dies and Iridescent Sequins and Whisper White Twine are added.
The insert is stamped as well as the envelope (not shown). This adds that extra special touch to cards.
Here you can see the cards in sequential order.
