I've used a couple of different techniques for today's card. It uses the Rose Garden thinlits together with the Rose Wonder stamp set - which is available as a bundle with a 15% discount.
The whole set has some beautiful dies and stamps. Here I've used the smaller rose die to cut out a rose from foil card (not Stampin' Up!), then I've used an Aqua Painter and ink pads to colour in the rose. I used Soft Sky and Mint Macaron to vary the colour slightly on each petal.
The background mat is Soft Sky card that I've stamped with the large rose stamp. Then I used the With Sympathy sentiment and die cut it with the banner die from the set.
There are so many sentiments in the Rose Wonder stamp set - birthday, sympathy, wedding, thank you, religious - enough to cover most things!
There lots of possibilities and techniques you could use with this bundle. I didn't know whether I'd use it much to start with, but now that I have it, I love it and know it will become a firm favourite.
Here are the products I used:
Here's what Stampin' Up! have done with the set:
