Rosie Posie revisited.

The Rosie Posie set has been on my mind lately, so this morning I played around with it a bit and combined the roses with the Doily Details die onto Fine Linen cardstock.
I used Pure Poppy, Melon Berry and Simply Chartreuse for the flowers and leaves. They were cut out with the Rosie Posie dies.
The hexagons were stamped and embossed with white embossing powder...and they look pretty just like this, but when you stamp the smaller hexagon onto Fine Linen patterned paper and cut them out, they add such a nice contrast to the white centers and really make the hexagons pop!

Sending a Big Thank You card:
STAMPS: Rosie Posie, A Big Thank You
INK: Fresh Snow, Dark Chocolate, Classic Kraft, Pure Poppy, Melon Berry, Simply Chartreuse
PAPER: Fine Linen and white cardstock, Fine Linen Patterned Paper
DIES: Rosie Posie, Doily Details
OTHER: corner rounder.
------------

Here I stamped the thank you on vellum and laid it over a Doily Details die cut. I had stamped a Rosie Posie rose on the die cut with Pure Poppy ink before attaching the vellum over top. It's very subtle, but peeks through and adds a nice touch!
The vellum is layered over Fine Linen patterned paper and attached with twine. I don't think I'll EVER get tired of the Rosie Posie set, it's so pretty and can be used for so many occasions!
Sending You Thanks card:
STAMPS: Rosie Posie, A Big Thank You
INK: True Black, Pure Poppy
PAPER: white cardstock, Fine Linen Patterned Paper, vellum
DIES: Doily Details
OTHER: twine from The Twinery, corner rounder, hole punch.

Beautiful projects, Danielle. I love the sending you thanks stamps paired with Rosie Posie. The Smokey Shadow stripe and fine linen dot are also a surprising combo for me. thanks for the inspiration!
