Hey there friends! Today is Day 2 of Papertrey Ink’s March release. YAY! I am sharing a few projects using the new Rosie Posie Step 2 stamp set that you may have seen a sneak peek here. I read on the forum that many of you are really excited about the newest edition to the Rosie Posie stamp set. These stamps will give you even more shading options to use with the Rosie Posie stamp set (and dies). Now, you don’t have to worry about being the perfect marker or colored pencil colorer to achieve the best shading effects. I hope you like what I’ve created to share with you today.
This card is inspired by a couple of things: (1) Betsy’s bokeh inspired technique and (2) confetti. I know that so many of you enjoy creating and prefer mailing one-layer cards, so I thought I’d start there.
The large flower is stamped with orange zest, then Rosie Posie Step 2 (the shading) is stamped with raspberry fizz. The smaller flowers are stamped with sweet blush, then Rosie Posie Step 2 (the shading) with hibiscus burst. The leaves are stamped with spring moss, then Rosie Posie Step 2 with simply chartreuse.
I felt there was something missing and the solid circle stamp in Rosie Posie screamed for me to stamp with it! Using the stamp-off technique, I stamped the circles in various colors and hues used in the flowers. Last, I stamped the sentiment, first using soft stone as a shadow, then smokey shadow.
A colorful card for any person to enjoy their day, preferably a birthday, but any day will do!
Up next is another one-layer card using the daisy-inspired flower in Rosie Posie. Using a simple layout, I stamped the flowers with winter wisteria, then the details in plum pudding. Next, I stamped the inside layer with fine linen, and the detail layer in classic kraft. Then, I stamped the last detail using dark chocolate.
I stamped the sentiment and added winter wisteria cardstock strips.
My next card is a fun and festive birthday card. Again inspired by the confetti concept, I created a shaker card using circle die cuts (from the eyelet border die), tiny circles from 1/8″ hand punch, and the new Wonderful Words: Birthday die.
I cut a 3.5″ x 4.5″ sheet of white cardstock and dumped all the confetti die cuts/punches in the center. Next, I die cut Mega Mat Stack 4 from aqua mist cardstock (3.75″ x 5″). I adhered clear acetate behind the aqua mist cardstock to create a “clear window” to allow the confetti to show through. Then, I used the solid circle stamp in Rosie Posie to stamp the polka dot background on the aqua mist frame. Using foam adhesive, I made a border on the back side of the aqua mist frame – just on the outside of the mat stack 4 die cut area – and adhered it to the white cardstock. Voila! A confetti shaker card!
And last, I stamped the flowers onto the coordinating die cuts. The largest flower is stamped with berry sorbet, then pure poppy. The next flower is stamped with sweet blush, then hibiscus burst. The last flower is stamped with summer sunrise, then orange zest. The leaves are stamped with new leaf, then ripe avocado.
When using Rosie Posie Step 2, I like to use two similar hues of the same ink color.
My last project is a cheery birthday card. I used four stamp sets on this card! I die cut the polaroid inspired frame and stamped the coordinating image in hawaiian shores. On lemon tart cardstock, I stamped the birthday sentiment, then added the die cut.
Next, I stamped the roses onto the die cuts using harvest gold ink. With Rosie Posie Step 2, I stamped the detail with summer sunrise. The leaves are stamped with simply chartreuse, then new leaf for the detail.
I hope you have enjoyed today’s cards using Rosie Posie along with the new Rosie Posie Step 2 that will be available on March 15 at 10 pm EST. For more projects for this release, don’t forget to check out what’s new over at Nichole, Heather, Dawn, Maile, and Melissa’s blogs.
