A Rose is a Rose

I was lucky enough to earn a free stamp set from SU! and I could choose any one from the catalogue. I decided to choose one I ordinarily would not choose for myself so I chose one called A Rose is a Rose.

It is not that I don't like the set that I wouldn't choose it, more that I have not really anyone I would necessarily send a card to using that set. However...looking at what sonme other people have done with this stamp set I can see it's appeal, especially amongst many of customers so I decided that I would try it out!

It is one of the sets that is part of the "Definitely Decorative" range, that is sets that work brillaintly for card making and scrapbooking as well as for use on textiles, walls etc.

Card Recipe..

Stamps: A Rose is a Rose
Card Stock: Bravo Burgundy, Old Olive, Whisper White
Inks: Old Olive, Bravo Burgundy, Pale Plum, Perfect Plum
Accessories : Bravo Burgundy grosgrain, White Signo Gel Pen, Sponge, Circle Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals

This set takes two-step stamping to another level, it allows you to create a whole picture. I only used a few of the many stamps in this set to create this, there are 14 in the whole set so it makes it very good value.

The actual presentation of the flower was inspired by a design by Jules, a UK SU! demonstrator, I just created a different layout, different colours and as I have no DSP from the new catalogue that matches at this stage I made my own using stamps from the set. It makes it a little fussy but I think that is part of 'this style'.
