To A Wild Rose - Kim Peck 1

To A Wild Rose Blessed To Know You Card

We're still waiting on the Purple Posy ink issue to be rectified and when I see gorgeous color combinations like this card, I can hardly wait!  This swap card was created by Kim Peck.  Looks like Kim got her hands on the Purple Posy ink before it was pulled for quality issues.  If you look closely, you can see that this light purple color is a little mottled on her flower, which is evidence of the excess foaming that was happening on the pads. No worries! While we wait for the issue to be resolved, we can used stamped-off Highland Heather ink as a alternative.

Background Basics—Kim started by embossing a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Purple Posy cardstock with the Layered Leaves embossing folder and adhering that to a Blackberry Bliss card base.

Lovely Label—Kim stamped the two-part To A Wild Rose sentiment in Blackberry Bliss onto Whisper White cardstock, then die-cut the label out with the Wild Rose dies. It's adhered to the card front with SNAIL.

To A Wild Rose - Kim Peck 3

Fabulous Flower—The flower was created with three different To A Wild Rose stamps.  The outline stamp was stamped in full-strength Blackberry Bliss, then the solid flower image was stamped over the top in Purple Posy (or stamped-off Highland Heather) ink. It's finished with the detailed flower image over the top in stamped-off Blackberry Bliss. The center of the flower was stamped in Daffodil Delight.

The leaves are also created with three images: outline in Mossy Meadow, solid in Soft Sea Foam and detailed in stamped-off Mossy Meadow. 

Kim die-cut the flower and leaves with the Wild Rose dies. The leaves are attached to the card front with SNAIL adhesive and the flower is popped up with Dimensionals.

To A Wild Rose - Grimmer 1

To A Wild Rose Blessed To Be Your Friend Card

This second To A Wild Rose card adds some additional layers for a somewhat stepped-up version. I love all of the details that Mary Anne Grimmer added to this swap card!

Background Basics—Mary Anne started by stamping the To A Wild Rose rose outline image in Rococo Rose ink all over a 5-1/4" x 3" piece of Rococo Rose cardstock.  She adhered it to a Blushing Bride card base.

To A Wild Rose - Grimmer 2
Background Layers—Mary Anne stamped the end of the sentiment onto the card front in Rococo Rose ink. She also die-cut the detailed border from Blushing Bride cardstock with the Wild Rose dies and adhered it to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To A Wild Rose - Grimmer 4
Fabulous Flower—Like the first card, Mary Anne used all three To A Wild Rose images to create the flower and leaves.  For the flower, she stamped the outline in Soft Suede, the solid background in Blushing Bride and the details in Rococo Rose.  The flower center was stamped in Daffodil Delight.  For the leaves, she stamped the outline in Mossy Meadow, the solid in Soft Sea Foam and the details in stamped-off Mossy Meadow. 

These images were also die-cut with the Wild Rose dies. The leaves were adhered with SNAIL adhesive. She added a couple of loops of Magnolia Lane Mossy Meadow Twine behind the flower, then popped it up with Dimensionals.  

To A Wild Rose - Grimmer 3

Fussy-Cut Sentiment—Mary Anne finished the card by stamping the word "blessed" in Soft Suede onto Whisper White cardstock and fussy-cutting it out with super-sharp Paper Snips. She even popped it up with Mini Dimensionals, likely cut to fit in some areas, for a Too Cool element!  I love it!
