All about Roses

First off, I have a movie review I just have to share!!! We went to see The Croods! SOOOO much fun. This movie is so hilarious. We came out saying we weren't sure we had laughed this much during a movie as this one. That makes it really fun for the adults as well as the kids.

I recently received an adorable little set of stamps from Wplus9 Designs and I just knew I needed to play with it this weekend.
 First off, I wanted something super simple so I could use the cute sketch from CAS(E) this sketch.  The sentiment is from another set from the same company.
 I stamped one rose, masked that to stamp two leaves and then finished it with this neat sentiment. I cut it out with a Hero Arts die.  LOVE that chicken wire embossing folder.
 Here is the CAS(E) this sketch!
 While I had the stamps out, I played some more. I pulled out some of my Stephanie Barnard Clearsnap stamp pads, I just love the shades.  I partially embossed my red card base.
This was so easy because all I did was to repeatedly stamp the rose and the leaves. I didn't ink the rose every time, that makes for a variety of shades of the same color ink.  Another neat sentiment from the sentiment set.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Gorgeous cards - I love the rich colours and the 'edge' that the chicken wire embossing gives the first one. Thanks for the movie review - we may go see it this weekend. Thanks so much for playing along with us at CAS(E) This Sketch this week!
