Rosie Posie

I recently got a Papertrey Ink order and the Rosie Posie stamp set so I had to play right away (there's something about brand new stamps that beg to be inked up!) and here is the first of 2 cards I created:


I used some of the grid cardstock from PTI as my card base and stamped the small flower and one of the background stamp elements in the grid spaces. Yes, I actually cut one of the stamps apart so I would have a single image to work with. The colors are Smokey Grey (Memento) and Creme Brulee (CTMH). The paper was a strip leftover from another project that I folded and adhered to the card with scor-tape.

The main flower was stamped and highlighted with a colored pencil to add a little shading. I added the focal piece to the card front with foam tape and a band of gray ribbon along the top edge of the pleated paper.

The background is a little busier than I anticipated but I like the overall results. I will be back soon with another Rosie Posie card that has a totally different look. See you soon!

Lovely card. Love the pleated paper at the bottom. good for you that you ink your stamps when you get them. I still have some uninked ones. :(

Love the soft and muted colors. Wonderfully combined. The pleated valance is just darling. Well done.

i love the pleats and the color combination. (i've cut one of my stamps, too, and the initial feeling was horrible LOL!)

That background looks so cool, how you alternated the hexagons with the flower! And I love how well the large flower fits on MS#1-- I will have to remember that!
Fabulous card, Mary!
