Now let’s hear from Sharon about her project…

With Valentine’s Day less than a month away, love is in the air! I know I
was definitely in love at first sight with the latest in the Simply Stamped series – Roses, and I couldn’t
wait to get my hands on this gorgeous stamp and coordinating die set!

I love how easy it is to get wonderful three-color dimensional results with
these stamps AND that there are three different sizes of roses included! I used two
of my favorite color combos I’ve found (so far!) – For the lighter pink roses I
used a Distress Ink combo of Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, and Picked Raspberry. 
For the darker red roses I used a combo of Picked Raspberry (stamped off lightly
first), Festive Berries, and Fired Brick. For the leaves, I used Shabby
Shutters and Crushed Olive Distress Ink.

The roses were stamped onto a 5.50” x 4.25” panel of Sugar
Cube
, then the entire panel dry embossed with the Swiss Hearts
Embossing Folder
.

To finish the card, I adhered the stamped panel to a white card base, then
topped it with the Picture Perfect-Valentine “Love You” panel,
die-cut from Lollipop cardstock, adhered with foam tape. I cut an additional “Love You” panel from Oreo
cardstock, cut the letters off and glued them on top of the Lollipop panel.
Finally, an additional medium red rose was stamped and die cut with its
coordinating die, and added with foam tape.
Also shown in the photo one of TE’s wonderful A2 Multi-Color Envelopes in coordinating pink, to make your card giving occasions extra special!

Wishing you all an early Happy Valentine’s Day!
