For my card design this month, I chose the beautiful Christmas Rose stamp set from the Christmastime is Here Suite available while supplies last. This beautiful stamp set is so versatile and I wanted to show how you can use it to create a card that is not for Christmas.
This clean and simple card design features Old Olive cardstock for the card base and I stamped the focal image onto a layer of Whisper White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. To color this beautiful rose design, I used the photopolymer stamp images included in the stamp set with the Stamparatus. I love how simple this technique makes it simple to color this rose with just a few ink colors. For the rose I used Poppy Parade Classic ink and Blushing Bride Classic ink, for the leaves I chose Old Olive Classic ink and for the berries I chose Cherry Cobbler Classic ink. I stamped the pine cones separately using a small clear block using Soft Suede Classic ink. The sentiment I chose is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and I heat embossed it with Gold embossing powder and added three small Basic Pearls that I colored with the Light Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends Marker.
As you can see, this pretty card design has so many wonderful possibilities for a variety of occasions and you can change the colors to give it a completely different look.
