Hey there friends! In today's post, I want to share with you four different card design ideas using Stampin' Up!'s To A Wild Rose stamp set. The card designs range from simple all the way to more intricate. So whatever your stamping style or preference, there is a design you'll be able to use.

Let’s start off by taking a look at Stampin’ Up!’s To A Wild Rose Stamp Set.

Stampin’ Up! | To A Wild Rose Stamp Set

As you can see, this stamp set is a beautiful combination of both images and greetings.

The greetings are perfect for friendship, thinking of you, and thank you cards. And I really love that they come in my personal favorite style – a combination of regular and script fonts.

There are two styles of image stamps included in the set. Outline image stamps and solid image stamps. The outline stamps are great for those of you who love to color (like me). Whereas the solid image stamps work well those of you who aren’t big on coloring and would rather stamp using colored inks. Or for those of you who are short on time (coloring IS time consuming).

The other advantage to having both styles of stamps is that you get a lot of different design options in one set. How so? Each image style gives a totally different look.

The solid image stamps are what Stampin’ Up! calls Distinktive™ stamps.

Distinktive™ stamps are photorealistic, and have a special texture that creates depth in the stamped image without needing to stamp and layer two, three or even more different stamps to create the same look. If you’re interested in learning more about Distinktive™ stamps, check out this video by Stampin’ Up!.

For my cards, I chose to only use the outline stamp of the rose and the leaves. I did this because I wanted to be able to color my roses using my Stampin’ Blends (Copic-like alcohol markers).

I must confess, I am a bit of an alcohol marker addict. I just love the incredible depth and dimension you can get. Not to mention the fact that I can put the shadows and highlights where I want, not where the stamp dictates.

Now if you’re short on time, or you just don’t like coloring, then, as I mentioned above – simply use the solid stamps for your cards. The card designs that I’m sharing work just as well with the solid stamps.

The To A Wild Rose stamp set also comes with a coordinating set of dies.

There are 8 dies in the set. Three of the dies can be used to cut out your stamped mages (the rose, the leaves, and the flower center). The remaining dies were designed to coordinate with the stamp set. Which gives you even more design options.

Now one of the things you’ll notice when you look at my cards is that all the images are cut out.

Yes, I fussy cut them.

Believe it or not, I really like fussy cutting! And sometimes I just find it faster and easier to hand cut my images rather than hauling out my die cutting machine. Not to mention the fact that I tend to like to cut a little closer to the images than dies generally allow.

Okay, so now that I showed you the stamps and the dies, let me show you my cards.

As I mentioned earlier, I created four cards in all. Now because I love coloring, and I love my Stampin’ Blends (Stampin’ Up!’s brand of alcohol markers), I used the outline image stamp for the rose.  You could just as easily use the solid image stamps for any or all of these cards.

Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Card 1 | You’ve Been On My Mind

This first card is the perfect design for clean and simple stampers.

A single flower and a few leaves which I cut out and placed over a strip of die-cut gold foil. My greeting stamped and embossed onto a strip of black cardstock.  And a few gold rhinestones for a lovely finishing touch.

Here’s a list of the supplies I used for this card (all Stampin’ Up!):

  • Stamps: To A Wild Rose (focal image), Butterfly Gala (greeting);
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Whisper White Craft Ink;
  • Alcohol Markers: Light and Dark Purple Posy, Light and Dark Highland Heather, Light Night of Navy, Light and Dark Granny Apple Green, Dark Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends;
  • Paper: Whisper White Thick CS, Whisper White CS, Purple Posy CS, Basic Black CS, Gold Foil;
  • Accessories: Gilded Gems, Wil Rose Dies;

Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Card 2 | True Friendship

This next card also qualifies as a clean and simple card design.

This card is a very similar layout to the first card except that the orientation of the card is a side-fold landscape card.  As you can see though, the elements are identical, other than the greeting. For this card, I decided to stamp my greeting directly onto the Whisper White cardstock.

Here’s a list of the supplies I used for this card (all Stampin’ Up!):

  • Stamps: To A Wild Rose (focal image and greeting);
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Whisper White Craft Ink;
  • Alcohol Markers: Light and Dark Purple Posy, Light and Dark Highland Heather, Light Night of Navy, Light and Dark Granny Apple Green, Dark Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends;
  • Paper: Whisper White Thick CS, Whisper White CS, Purple Posy CS, Basic Black CS, Gold Foil;
  • Accessories: Gilded Gems, Wil Rose Dies;

Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Card 3 | Grateful To Know You

Okay, moving on to my third card.

This card is slightly more “stepped” up than my previous cards.  As you can see I incorporated a second colored rose, but I colored it in slightly lighter tones.

Here’s a list of the supplies I used for this card (all Stampin’ Up!):

  • Stamps: To A Wild Rose (focal image and greeting);
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Whisper White Craft Ink;
  • Alcohol Markers: Light and Dark Purple Posy, Light and Dark Highland Heather, Light Night of Navy, Dark Balmy Blue, Light and Dark Granny Apple Green, Dark Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends;
  • Paper: Whisper White Thick CS, Whisper White CS, Purple Posy CS, Basic Black CS, Gold Foil;
  • Accessories: Gilded Gems, Wil Rose Dies;

Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Card 4 | You Are Wonderful

And here we are, with my final (and favorite) card.

Although I love the way all the cards turned out, this one is definitely my favorite. I think it’s all the flowers and the way that the greeting is nestled within them.

The greeting I used in this card comes from a stamp set called Rooted in Nature which I bought specifically for the greetings. And that’s because I absolutely adore big bold script greetings.

As you can see, I once again colored my roses in both lighter and a darker shades of purple.

Here’s a list of the supplies I used for this card (all Stampin’ Up!):

  • Stamps: To A Wild Rose (focal image and greeting);
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Whisper White Craft Ink;
  • Alcohol Markers: Light and Dark Purple Posy, Light and Dark Highland Heather, Light Night of Navy, Dark Balmy Blue, Light and Dark Granny Apple Green, Dark Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends;
  • Paper: Whisper White Thick CS, Whisper White CS, Purple Posy CS, Basic Black CS, Gold Foil;
  • Accessories: Gilded Gems, Wil Rose Dies;
