Rose Blossoms Blog Hop

Welcome to the Rose Blossoms Blog Hop. We are highlighting our favorite C and D sized stamps sets to help you do your "Deal of the Decade" shopping. When you get done hopping come back and read about additional specials for those who shop with me this December.

If you have come from lovely Barbara's Blog ... Welcome. If you're just getting started you'll find a whole circle of Rose Blossoms with beautiful art for you to see. All you have to do is look through my blog. Then toward the end you will see who is next. Keep hopping all the way through like this until you come back to me. Enjoy!! Here's what I'll be working with.

Can we start with a little straight up honesty? There's NO WAY to have a favorite stamp set. NONE.  With that said we can move on. I'm highlighting this amazing stamp set that you can add to your collection for only $10. And the main sentiment in this set could just be my favorite ... for now.

We really should always strive to be the best version of ourselves and not try to be anyone else. I love that God says we are "fearfully and wonderfully made". That goes perfectly with this sentiment. I kept the front of this card simple because I wanted the inside of the card to be a great big surprise.

What do you think?? That beautiful butterfly really doesn't need much BUT I stamped and inked and cut more Cricut shapes because I wanted to go all out to contrast the simplicity of the front. (by the way ... this is a white card and I had a dickens of a time setting the WB on my camera to capture it accurately. At least it came out pinkish which goes with the color scheme)

Here are a couple of other things I put together while I had these items out on my desk.

I love stamp sets that have a nice selection of sentiments to go along with the images. These sentiments cover a broad range of card making needs. 

NOW you can move on to the oh so talented Brenda Rose to see what she has made with this month's Stamp Of the Month. When you take advantage of the Deal of the Decade you will qualify for the SOTM for only $5. Make sure you take a good look at her amazing artwork.

  1. Wonderful YOU and wonderful creations! Love the butterlies stamped off the edge of the inside. I may be scraplifting some of these ideas when I bust into my "Brushed" paper packet. And I totally agree with you, no way for me to choose ONE favorite stamp set.

  2. Oh my dear sweet Shelly! The inside of that card IS a lovely surprise!! I really liked that you used the sponging technique from the Brushed workshop on the go. You are so amazing and I am so glad that God fearfully and wonderfully made YOU!!

  3. Beautiful cards! I especially love the inside of your AS butterfly card - I LOVE that you used the sponging technique from the Brushed WOTG!

  4. Wow! You really did make the inside pop! It is beautiful! I also love the statement, "Be your own kind of wonderful". You truly are!

  5. Exceptional work Shelly! The outside of the card is quite lovely but the inside is such a wonderful surprise. Love that you're showing us Artfully Sent along with some great stamping technique and Cricut cuts. Wonderful indeed!

  6. Oh be honest, when I scrolled down to the inside of your AS card, I had tears. Not sure why, but it is just beautiful and so true. You've done such an over the top job on these cards. Just gorgeous!

  7. Such pretty artwork, Shelly! I just pulled this set out for the first time this week and love it!
