WPlus9 Preview: Coming Up Roses

Hey there, everyone!!  Welcome to day 3 of the December/January WPlus9 release week!  Today we are featuring a new stamp & die set called "Coming Up Roses".  Here is a little more info on it:

Coming Up Roses
  • is a 6x8 clear photopolymer stamp set
  • 24 individual image building stamps
  • will be available for purchase December 5th for $21
Coming Up Roses Companion Die
  • contains 7 individual dies
  • coordinates with the Coming Up Roses stamp set
  • will be available for purchase December 5th for $13

I have gone clean & simple for my cards today, and kept the focus on the beautiful flowers you can create with this stamp set.  Here is what I created!
Instructions:
1. Make an A2 card from oatmeal cardstock, then round the bottom corners.
2. Distress ink the edges of the card.
3. Diecut the vase from vellum & the flower from oatmeal cardstock, then distress ink the edges.
4. Stamp the flower & vase, then adhere to the left side of the card.
5. Stamp the smaller flower images coming from the top of the vased flower, then accent with sequins.
6. Wrap twine around the middle, then top the vase with a double bow & twine threaded button.
7. Stamp the sentiment below the twine to finish.

Here is another card with the same design....just flip flopped, & using different colors & flower!

I did create these with the current CAS-ual Fridays #121 challenge to use 8 of something.  Both cards have 8 sequins on them.  I think they were the perfect accent, don't you?!

How beautiful of these flowers that you can create with this stamp set?  I just love it!!  I can't wait to try it more in different colors & shades!  Be sure to check out what the rest of the WPlus9 designers have created for today!
