Diva Sketch #27

Apologies for my late post – it seems the school holidays and the late nights staying up making swaps for convention are starting to catch up with me!

DSC 27

Here is this weeks sketch for the Diva’s Sketch challenge – simple enough with many many possibilities. I love clean simple cards as I think they turn out much more stunning than those weighed down with lots of embellishments and layers.

I went a little different this week with only including a couple of stamped images and they arent the focal point of my card. As stampers we seem to forget all the other gorgeous products we have from Stampin’ Up! to use.

Here is my card and I must say I’m very happy with how it turned out. dsc27-rosepirouetterubonsll

The saying comes from the Love & Laughter Rubons. I love showing my customers the gorgeous Rubons from Stampin’ Up! They have so many uses and they stick to just about anything!

You can use them on

  • cards (as a focal point or decoration)
  • scrapbook layouts
  • photo’s
  • photo frames
  • mirrors
  • candles
  • coffee cups
  • soap
  • candle holders
  • plates
  • laptops (to jazz it up and make it personalised and purty!)
  • glasses
  • jars

I love the soft feminine look and the little rosebuds from A Rose is a Rose just give it that little bit of elegance. You could add some dazzling diamonds to the rosebuds for a little bling if you wanted to. This set makes some gorgeous cards using the 2 step stamping technique.

I do love the Rose is a Rose set and you can expect to see more items made using this set over the next 12 months. The set sounds expensive at $66.95 but it does have 14 stamps in the set so when you break it down its very good value at under $5 per stamp.

The background paper comes from the Bella Rose Designer Series Paper pack which again is just lovely!

I hope you like this card and again I’m sorry I didnt get this post done on Saturday. Have a great day and I’ll be back tomorrow with another post for you and a little hint about next month’s special!

    Greetings from Michigan USA

    That is a most beautiful card, Leonie. I love the color choices as well as the SU Rub Ons. Never have used them, but am going to have to purchase some and try them.
