Royal Blog Tour - A rose by any other name...

Cordial Greetings, my most anticipated guests! I hope you are having a fantastic tour along these royal paths of inspiration! Whilst you pass a moment here, I hope you find pleasure in the beautiful and versatile set I have the pleasure to present: Fifth Avenue Floral.

This set bloomed into popularity with several beautiful watercolor techniques, and is a perfect focal point for cards to celebrate birthdays, weddings, births, achievements, or other special days. For holidays, coordinate some beautiful colors and this set adds pizazz! It also can be a beautiful accent for sympathy or remembrance cards, and says "Sorry" ever so sweetly.

The most wonderful thing about this stamp set though, is the joyful use beyond cards! Roses are a universal symbol of love, perfect to add to wedding announcements or favors, accessories like the Guest Book or signs, and of course - the Scrapbook! Weddings, Graduations, Sweet Sixteen... dozens of events this set can add a special touch to. And then there are the OTHER two flowers!!

The beauty of it - it's not limited to paper! This set has crisp bold lines, great to stamp onto fabric, wood, glass, icing for cupcakes or cakes, pottery... I know you have only a short time with me, so I won't go on (and on, and on!)... suffice it to say this set is AWESOME! It should be at the top of your wish list!

To share with you on the tour, I created a gift for a sweet girl turning Thirteen this month! A plain metal make up box I "made-up" to look slightly more sassy...

Clever girl, I love this. My granddaughter would love this herself, and you are right this set can be used on anything. I was thinking of making a pin, using thick utee embossing powdwer, so it would look like glass. Thanks a lovely stop along my way. jackielwatson2009@hotmail.com

Kathy Mc said...

Great idea on a paint can also and filled with "girly" stuff. This is adorable though and so snazzy!

Great ideas! Thanks for the inspriation!

Dale Morin said...

How cute! I have to admit it is hard for me to think out of the box and not do cards. This would be great to do on the top of a laptop to jazz it up on on the top of the Clear box storage caddy. Now that really needs something!

Tammy Q Howell said...

How smart you are! Love that you used this set in that way. I love that set and need to get it out and play with it. I thought about using the set on shrink film and making earrings out of it.

Marsha E said...

Cute project idea! I thought about layering the rose (stamp several times & cut out pieces) on a tissue box. Then, saying 'Hope your smelling the roses soon' or something like that. TFS.

I never thought about embossing on metal- will have to try that one looks like fun! tfs

Anita said...

Stunning idea! I would use them on a scrapbook page.

Patrice H said...

What a cleaver idea. I too like the diversity of this stamp set. During the summer I had the opportunity to make a lei out of the cut out and colored flowers it turned out really cut. I put plastic beads in between a two sided flower and strung it up with yarn I also had some green leaves intermittently between flowers. Have fun and create something fun.

Adorable! I have a 13 year old myself and she would absolutely love this!

I have used this lovely set for so many things but after seeing this adorable box I thought about using it on candles. There are so many colors that the tissue paper could be colored and once heat set on the candles they would be perfectly delightful gifts!

Thanks for sharing this great design!

Sharon Steinwand said...

I'd use this set to stamp on a tile to use as a decoration or hotplate -just the outline, or colored in. Thanks for sharing!

Hi, I'm Lee Conrey! said...

Fabulous!!! Not much more to say except you did a fabulous job. What a great idea......I think I might just be using. Thanks for sharing in my castle.

Brenda Hugar said...

What a great, great idea and I have one granddaughter that just turned 13! I think she would love this. Non-card idea -- hmmm, I think I would try embossing the designs on glass (around the edges) and put a favorite photo or memento inside a shadow box.

Jean Fitch from jlfstudio said...

Wonderful Inspiration for one of my favorite stamp sets. I've been thinking about using this set on a shower curtain just not sure about its permanancy. Maybe with Stazon? Lamp Shades would be cool too.
Thanks for sharing the out of the box (or should I say on the box?)idea.

Great project! Talk about thinking outside the box! Thanks for sharing your talents on the RBT!

Christi Usher said...

Wow! I love your Make-up case idea. I have a couple tween's that this would be a perfect gift for!

Let's see... a non-card idea as to how I'd use the rub on's if I won.... I'd incorporate them onto a champaign glass for my daughter's 21st Birthday. She's a wonderful young lady and a special toast from Mom would definately be a keepsake for years to come.

Warmest Wishes~
