Roses in Luton

Yesterday I was lucky enough to be invited to spend my morning with some lovely ladies at their card making class. I was also asked to design a project for them all to do. Now it has been raining a lot here so when I was thinking about a project to do I wanted something in sunny colours and that would remind me that summer is just around the corner, so I turned to the wonderful A Rose is A Rose Stamp Set. I also wanted us to make a card that the ladies could use for a variety of occasions. This is what we made – a sunny yellow rose and a matching gift box.
The card is Old Olive with a Whisper White Layer. The Whisper White Layer has been stamped with the Spotted background stamp in So Saffron and then the bottom two thirds was stamped in More Mustard with one of the stamps from the Rose is a Rose Set. Our Rose clusters were stamped with So Saffron and More Mustard for the flowers and Old Olive and Always Artichoke for the leaves. The greeting is from the wonderful Oval All Set, has been coloured using blender pens and layered with the Oval Punch and the Scalloped Oval Punch.
The gift bag was also decorated using the Oval All Stamps and the Oval Punches. If you would like instruction on how to make this simple gift bag please email me These look great in the Stampin’ Up! Papers and if you want to make some you are still just in time to get the lovely papers while they are on special offer. If you are in the UK and place your order with my before Sunday you can get four packs of paper for the price of three - an amazing 25% off. I also have a couple of spaces on a reduced price paper share still available – a 6x6 sheet of each of the 102 patterned papers available for just £16 including post and packing. If you take both places you could have the papers either 6x6 or have then 12x6 – ideal for scrapbooking! I am really enjoying scrapbooking and will have some more pages to share with you soon!

I have a couple of spaces still available on my card making class tomorrow (Saturday) so if you are in the Dunstable area and are interested in coming along please get in touch as soon as possible. We will be making cards that can be used for any occasion.

Thanks for stopping by

Happy Crafting
