Hello friends!! Wow... it is an absolutely GORGEOUS day here in the PacNW. Both the Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges are in full glorious view from my neighborhood! That means Mt. Rainier dominates the view on one side and on the other it is the Olympics. I just love days like these!! I have a little card I made yesterday using my newly acquired Rosie Posie and Rosie Posie Step 2 sets from PTI, as well as the matching dies. Not sure why it took me so long to purchase these sets because they are fabulous!! The layout for my card is based on the super talented Chupa's current Sketchbook Saturday sketch. It has been way too long since I made a card using one of her sketches!! The colors are from the current ColourQ combo.
I die cut the largest floral image and then stamped it with Pumpkin Pie ink. I used the Step 2 image and stamped that over the top using Melon Mambo ink. And dang... I really like how it turned out. The leaves were die cut and then stamped using Kiwi Kiss by first inking up the leaf image, stamping it off and then stamping on the die cut. The Step 2 image was then stamped using full strength Kiwi Kiss. Once that was done I fiddled about for a while working on placement of the flower and leaves and the finishing touches. I think I should have embossed the white panel after I stamped it with the sentiment just to give the card a bit more interest, but instead added the sequins. Anywhoo... I do like how it turned out!
Thanks for stopping by...
