Climbing Roses T.O.Y. (Thinking of You)

Heart's Delight Cards, Climbing Roses, Rose Trellis Thinlits, Thinking of You, Occasions 2019, Stampin' Up!

Ahhhhh, roses! I sure do love them, especially the really fragrant old roses. Unfortunately, I have found them to be more trouble than they are worth, as far as growing them. Since I'm a somewhat lazy relaxed gardener, pests, diseases, and pruning made me cross them off my easy-to-grow plant list. And it's not like they can be preserved and put in the pantry, either, making them worth the effort. Guess I'll put my energy into less finicky flowers (Zinnias! Cosmos! Sunflowers!) and admire the stamped images instead.

Naturally, Climbing Roses is one of my favorite new bundles, not only because the image is beautiful and fun to color, but the coordinating dies are to die for! (Heh, see what I did there?) The trellis is awesome all by itself, and I made it even awesomer by painting it with Frost White Shimmer Paint, so it really stands out on the white card base.

And the dotted label is gorgeous, as well. I didn't know what to call it....holey, holey dots, dotted, pierced? Whatever it's called, it's so pretty! It measures 1-1/2" x 2-1/4" between the holes, so there is plenty of room for greetings or images.

This is a Cling Mount stamp set so it's red rubber, which means it's good for the marker to stamp technique. I used Basic Black and Lovely Lipstick Stampin' Write Markers on the greeting, and the image was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento so I could color with Stampin' Blends. The dies include cutouts for the flowers, but I did fussy cut an extra rose to pop up on dimensionals.

Now, I have to admit, the sentiment inside is not from Stampin' Up! but it was so funny, and so appropriate for me and my stamping friends that I HAD to get it. Lookie:

Isn't that just hilarious?! Funny how that happens ALL. THE. TIME.
