This week's showcase is all about Rococo Rose, one of Stampin' Up!'s In Colors that will retire from our range in early May.  Cathy Proctor hosts our weekly Colour Creations Showcases.  Make sure you visit her blog to see her beautiful creation, and to find a list of participants in this week's share ... you'll be able to visit everyone's blogs by clicking on the links.

I have stuck with "simple" for my pink creations this week.  I've used the Vine Design bundle (sadly that, too, will retire at the beginning of May) to decorate some Basic White Notecards & Envelopes.  I like to have some "thank you" notecards on hand, and these are a sweet addition to my stash.

There are three intricate doily-type dies in the Vine Design bundle; they form the basis of my designs.  I cut each background shape from Rococo Rose Designer Series Paper, adhered each one to a notecard that has a top layer of Basic White card embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder (we'll lose that, too, in May), and added stamped and die-cut flowers.  The flower stamps were inked in Blushing Bride ink, and I applied Rococo Rose ink with a sponge dauber before stamping the images onto card.  The flowers on the envelopes are all stamped in Rococo Rose ink.

Here's the first notecard, with the stamped envelope underneath.  The sentiment (from Vine Design) has been cropped using an Ornate Frames die.

The ribbon on my second card is Crinkled White Seam Binding, coloured with the Light Rococo Rose Stampin' Blends marker.  If I'd known how pretty and soft the light marker is, I would have been using it more often!  We're a bit "light on" with soft pinks in our colour range, and I love how this looks.  The sentiment on this card was cut out using a Stitched Shapes Die.  These staple dies, that I use on most of my cards, will also be retiring from Stampin' Up!'s range at the beginning of May.

On my last notecard, I added a couple of extra stamped and die-cut flowers, tucking one behind the sentiment label.  The die used to cut out the sentiment on this one is from the Stitched So Sweetly collection.

Listed below are all the products I used to make these cards.  If you live in Australia, and would like to shop with me for your Stampin' Up! supplies, you can get to my online store by clicking on any of the thumbnail images below.

Tomorrow I will be sharing another Rococo Rose card; I hope you will come back to visit.

Product List


  1. Sweet is definitely the correct word for these lovely notecards. I like how you've cut the vine shapes from DSP, the patterns in the paper and the die cut look fabulous together.

  2. These definitely are sweet cards, love the Vine die cuts in Rococo Rose. They set off the flowers you've stamped and die cut too.

  3. What a sweet and pretty collection of thank you cards Christine! They are all so lovely I really can't chose a fave. Don't you hate it when you finally use a product (ie the light marker!) just before it retires and regret not having used it more often? Thank you for inspiring us all with your creations this week xx

  4. Love each variation using the vine die cuts to showcase Rococo Rose elegantly.

  5. Lovely notecards, Christine. This Vine dies are so lovely and I feel we haven't had long enough to enjoy them more. That particular DSP adds a great textural effect with little effort; very clever!

  6. You thank you note cards are very sweet. They look fabulous with the vine design bundle.

  7. Cute and sweet and adorable and totally gorgeous! Love these little gems Christine.
