My favorite stamp set out of the new catalog is To a Wild Rose. I fell in love when I saw it - and have been surprised that it hasn't been given more love out there. When a new catalog comes out, it's fairly clear what the favorites are because you seem them all over blogs, etc. - not so much on the rose. Maybe I just don't follow the people who are using it - but I follow a lot of people! I LOVE the texture from the layering.
On my favorites list, this stamp set is followed closely by a die set that I guarantee is going to come out over and over - Stitched Labels. I didn't get the stamp set, just the dies, and they are fabulous. On this card I used the background die to give a hint of pattern. I cut it twice; it overlaps under the flower but that part is hidden.
I needed to find a tiny sentiment and I found one that fit in an old hostess set. This card is being used this very day for someone at work who is an avid gardener. I think it's just right.
I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches

This set is one of my favorites too and was on my first order. You've made a beautiful card with it. I love that background die, which I don't even remember being in the catalog. I need to add that one to the wish list.ReplyDelete
Very pretty. Love To A Wild Rose also and it is lovely in Grapefruit Grove. TFSReplyDelete
This is so pretty.....maybe I need to revisit that set! The diecut background is wonderful!ReplyDelete
This card is just beautiful Kim! I love that background and that flower is gorgeous! So pretty!ReplyDelete
This flower really is striking and I suspect it will get lots more love after people are inspired by this beauty. What wonderful colors (and that die in the background...just wow).ReplyDelete
This is simply beautiful. I LOVE the texture you used in the background with the die. I think I might need that die now!! Great take on the sketch!ReplyDelete
