Stampin’ Up! Rose Garden Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today I am sharing a card I made using the Rose Garden Thinlits from Stampin’ Up!.  I hope you enjoy my share today for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.


Today we had a sketch challenge.  Here is the sketch  we all used to make our cards.  After you see my post I hope you will stop by and visit the rest of the team and see what they created using the same sketch.

Here is the Sketch:


I love the way each team member uses the same sketch, yet each one of our cards is created  so uniquely.  Here is my creation,

Stampin’ Up! Rose Garden:

Stampin Up Rose Garden card by Kristi @

Here is the card recipe:

Card base:  Pool Party 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 scored at 4-1/4

Mat: Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4  Embossed with the Decorate Dots Embossing Folder

DSP: Birthday Bouquet DSP     2 x 5-1/4

I embossed the white mat with the decorative dots EF and then adhered the stripe of DSP to the mat.  Before adhering this to the card base I added the strip of Pool Party Glitter Ribbon with glue dots.  Then I attached this layer to the card base.

The Leaves:

Using a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock and the larger Rose Garden thinlit,  I cut the leaves from the die and adhered them to the front of the card.

The Rose:

I used my Big shot and cut out two of the small roses from the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies, one in whisper white and one in blushing bride card stock.  I Then punched a blushing bride circle with my 2 inch circle punch and glued my white outline rose to the circle.  This provided a base for the puzzle pieces of the rose to get glued to the surface.   I sponged the edges of the the blushing bride rose pieces with watermelon wonder ink. Then like a puzzle, glued them in place.  After all the pieces were glued down I attached the rose with some dimentionals.  This gave the card a bit more depth and dimension.

The Tiny Flowers:

I punched some small flowers with the Itty Bitty Accent punch pack in blushing bride card stock and sponged the edges with watermelon wonder ink with my sponge daubers.  Adding a tiny pearl to the center completes the  flowers.

The Sentiment:

Using the ink to rubber technique and my markers I colored the sentiment with Pool Party and blushing bride and mossy meadow  ink and stamped the sentiment from the Rose Wonder stamp set.   The sentiment was cut using the die from the Rose Garden Thinlits. I added another little flower with a pearl to complete the card.
