Rosie Posie...

Today the Papertrey Ink team is featuring a new stamp set and dies called Rosie Posie.

I am soooo in love with this set! We were to all choose an image that inspired us, so I found a pretty photo on Pinterest. I love the florals and hexagons. Florals never really go out of style, do they? They are classic and elegant and inspire me...
I've been loving gray lately, so I wanted to try pairing it with Ripe Avocado like the flowers in the photo. Then add some aqua, and voila!
I am not bold enough to do this in my own house, but I sure do like it a lot! The stenciling on the coffee table really inspires me! Here is a peek at my card set.

I started with Aqua Mist cardstock and stamped two of the larger flowers with Smokey Shadow ink first. Then I stamped some smaller flowers around the edges with Fresh Snow ink and embossed them with white embossing powder. I used Vintage Cream ink to brush the edges of the card and give it a softer feel.
I also brushed the die cuts with Vintage Cream ink to soften them. I popped them up with dimensional adhesive.

Here I stamped the leaves in Ripe Avocado and the flowers in Smokey Shadow and Aqua Mist inks. Then I stamped the white flowers and embossed them with powder and a heat gun. The button is a new Smokey Shadow button. I also brushed the card, even the card front, with my Vintage Cream ink pad.

The sentiments are from the new Lock & Key set coming out this month also.

Floral card set:
Stamps: Rosie Posie, Lock & Key
Ink: Smokey Shadow, Ripe Avocado, Fresh Snow, True Black, Vintage Cream
Paper: Aqua Mist cardstock
Dies: Rosie Posie dies

There are also some really neat hexagons in the set that I'm crazy about! The way they fit together made me think of a key opening a lock....
I used Aqua Mist, Spring Moss, Smokey Shadow and True Black ink for the designs, and Lavender Moon for the key (from the Lock & Key set). Love trying different color combos with this set!!! (I had fun, can you tell?)
 Knowledge is the Key card:
Stamps: Rosie Posie, Lock & Key
Ink: Aqua Mist, Spring Moss, Smokey Shadow, Lavender Moon, True Black
Paper: white cardstock
Dies: none
Other: PTI twine.
