CCEE1424 - Roses

Challenge 1424 this week at CCEE Stampers is to use roses! If you say roses to me, everyone knows I am going to be pulling out my long loved and well used KSS 3 Step Hearts and Roses. To be honest, I am actually on my second set. The first set was so deeply stained with inks after 5 years of use that I could no longer see through them to line them up properly. I've learned my lesson and my 2nd set never touches any ink but Memento. I've been using this set for a year now and it is still as clear as the day I got it!

My Christmas card today was created by stamping the roses first and then masking them to add the leaves. I then added masks to the leaves to add the pines ( from KSS Build a Garland). The sentiment is from Verve's Peace on Earth.


Be sure to check out the gorgeous roses the rest of the CCEE Team have stamped for you today!
