Enchanting Stippled Roses for Speedy Handmade Greeting Cards


  • Stampin' Up! Stippled Roses Stamp Set
  • Glass Mat Studio For FREE with Starter Kit until 29 February 2024
  • Check out the new Sale-A-Bration Selection recently added

Here's an elegant handmade card you'll create in minutes using the Stippled Roses Stamp Set from the January-April 2024 Mini Catalog.  This Stamp set also includes Stippled Roses Dies, but today, I wanted to showcase the breathtaking beauty and simplicity of using just the Stippled Roses Stamp Set alone.  The focal point of this card are the lovely roses and leaves stamped on Very Vanilla Cardstock.  My color theme is Very Vanilla and Pecan Pie.  The Stippled Roses stamp does all the work.  I stamped the largest roses in Pecan Pie Ink the middle of the Very Vanilla image area, and added a few addition leaves on the edges of the Layer.  Then I also selected sentiments rom the Stippled Roses Stamp Set and stamped them towards the bottom of the image layer, leaving room to add a ribbon and bow of Pecan Pie 3/8" Center Stripe Ribbon, and Online Exclusive, Item # 162744 | $7.50 USD. I also added a couple of Speckled Dots (retired), that I wanted to use up, but the Champagne Adhesive-Backed Sparkle Gems or the Pecan Pie Opaque Ovals would also work on this card.  The warmth of these roses come to life using Pecan Pie on Very Vanilla. Thanks to my friend and fellow demonstrator, Chris Smith from Stampin' with Chris. She demonstrated this card on her Facebook recently, and went on to showcase several other coloring techniques creating stunning creations and sepia toned cards with the Stipple Roses Stamp Set.  You'll love this easy and fast technique for creating handmade greeting cards you'll be proud to send.   

Reminder:  This is the Final month to earn items during Sale-A-Bration 2024 or to take advantage of the Joining Offer (see below). And look at the newly added Sale-A-Bration Surprise items just added.  From now until February 29, for each $50 or $100 you spend, you can select Free items from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.

Handmade greeting card using Stippled Roses Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!

Creating this beautiful card beginning with a basecard of Thick Very Vanilla  Cardstock. Then, a layer of Pecan Pie Cardstock.  And finally, another layer of Very Vanilla Cardstock to use as your image area.   

Handmade greeting cards using Stampin' Up! Stippled Rose Stamp Set

    Using Pecan Pie Ink on the largest stamp in Stippled Roses Stamp Set, stamp the image on the card leaving space at the bottom for a sentiment.  Then, to fill in a bit more of the image area, use the edges of the same Stipple Roses Stamp to stamp more leaves and rose buds.  Next, select sentiments from the Stippled Roses Stamp Set and stamp them on the bottom of the image layer also using Pecan Pie Ink.  Finally, add a ribbon and bow of Pecan Pie Center Stripe Ribbon from the Stampin' Up! Online Exclusives, and a couple of Adhesive Backed Speckled Dots.
