To a Wild Rose Sneak Peak...

To a Wild Rose
Good morning and thank you for dropping by.
I attended On Stage recently, a celebration event of everything Stampin' Up! and to launch the new Annual Catalogue coming in June.
I was very privileged and honoured to be asked to present on the stage to nearly 600 fellow demonstrators.  I was very nervous but everyone was very kind, despite me cutting my presentation a little short, thinking I had run over time!!!
The stamp set I was asked to present was To a Wild Rose.  This set was designed for Million Dollar Achiever, Mary Ellen Byler.  It is such a beautiful set which is a two-step stamp set, is Distinktive and has a beautiful outline stamp for use with colouring techniques.  I truly was spoilt for options.
Today I am sharing with you the three cards I presented on stage designed with the beginner, casual and avid stamper in mind.
The Beginner - I used Mango Melody to stamp the second part of the two-step stamp on to a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I then used Mossy Meadow to stamp the flower centres and greetings.  This is a great project with simple stamping in mind, stress free guaranteed results.
Casual - for the casual crafter I heat embossed the leaves stamp in white on to Whisper White cardstock.  I then sponged the background in Soft Sea Foam.  The greeting was stamped in Gray Granite.
The Avid - I stamped the leaves in Crumb Cake on to a co-ordinating base card.  The leaves were stamped in Mossy Meadow and the flower was stamped in second generation Crumb Cake ink on to Whisper White cardstock.
I then used Stampin' Blends in Lovely Lipstick (light and dark) and Flirty Flamingo (light).  I first lay a layer of Flirty Flamingo and to a piece of acetate scribble some of the two Lovely Lipstick blends.  I then used my Flirty Flamingo Blend to pick up the other two colours from the acetate, using it like a paintbrush.  This helps to blend the colours smoothly.  Once dry I then added the finer detail.
This is such a beautiful stamp set with so many possibilities making it so versatile for all levels of stamper.
I hope you have enjoyed my projects.  I will pop back later in the week to share with you some of the other samples I made for the display board.
Happy Stampin'
