Stampin' Up! To a Wild Rose and Hallows Night Magic Halloween Card

Did you know that the black rose isn’t black at all? In fact, black roses are deep, dark shades of purple, maroon, and red. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a black rose in person, but I know they are popular incorporated into Halloween décor. This card was inspired the Magic in This Night Designer Series Paper (DSP). I thought I would try a combination of the To a Wild Rose and Hallows Night Magic stamp sets and the coordinating dies for both.

  • Cover the stamp in Gray Granite ink

  • Repeat steps to create the base layer for the second rose

Rose Layer 2

  • Apply the second layering stamp from the To a Wild Rose stamp set to your ink block or place it on the Stamparatus, if you’re using it

  • Cover the stamp in Smoky Slate

  • Optional step: apply Gray Granite ink to a sponge dauber and dab it on the outside edges of the stamp

  • Stamp the second layer on top of the first

  • Repeat steps to create the second layer on the second rose

Rose Layer 3

  • Apply the final layering stamp from the To a Wild Rose stamp set to your ink block or place it on the Stamparatus, if you’re using it
