Stampin' Up! Graceful Garden

This is such a gorgeous rose, don't you think??  I knew as soon as I saw this stamp set, Graceful Garden, in the Annual Catalog that it was a must-have!

Read on to learn all about this card and gorgeous stamp set :).

We start our card with a Powder Pink card base.  Next, we added a layer of Berry Burst card stock embossed with the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder.  I love how the trellis embossing just peaks out from behind the stamped flower image!

Then, we stamped our rose (from the Graceful Garden Stamp Set) in Berry Burst ink on the flower and Old Olive on the leaves and stem - I like to use my Stampin' Write markers when I want two colors of ink on one stamp.  They work great for this technique - just make sure to use the fat, brush tip end of your marker kind of on an angle when coloring your stamp.

We also stamped that trellis-looking image (also from the Graceful Garden Stamp Set) in Crumb Cake ink around the corners of our Whisper White piece.

Next, we colored in our rose with our Powder Pink marker and added a Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding Bow to the flower.

Finally, we stamped "Thinking of You' from the Thoughts and Prayers Stamp set on the inside of our card.

This is the perfect stamp set to have on hand for those sympathy, get well, thinking of you and praying for you cards - it has just the right thing to say when you're at a loss for what to say!
