Welcome to day 4 of the Papertrey Ink December release countdown. Today the whole design team is sharing some inspiration and creating projects with the new Rosie Posie set. I also have another Tag-its #11 project to share at the end of the post.
If you are like me, you have gotten yourself into Pinterest (here are my boards here) and have unending inspiration at your fingertips. The whole design team went digging for inspiration from our idea files to use when creating our projects today.
All of the new stamp sets and products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase December 15th, 10PM EST, at Papertrey Ink.
This is my inspiration for my first card -an illustration by Jo Clark. I decided to step out of my box a bit and play with color combinations that I don't and wouldn't normally use. Grays combined with yellows are definitely on trend. I see this color combination all over the place, but it's not my first choice to pull from my supplies for creating.
For this card I used the Rosie Posie set as the main image for my card. Here are the results...
Looking at the Rosie Posie set, this might not be a style that would seem to coordinate with it. I played with circles and the daisy petal images to create my flowers for my card front. The stem was done using one of the stripes from the Distressed Stripes set. I am excited about the look I ended up with - definitely fun and modern.
I did some stitching with my sewing machine and added little bit of bling in the form of clear rhinestones to finish off my flowers.
The inspiration for my second card to use the Posie Posie set as a background came from this sketch by Liyin. I love the striking look of the black on the cream - another color combination that I might not normally use as a bold pattern on a project.
This was one of those cards that as I stamped, I got more and more excited about the results. I stamped the lines from MSS: Library Ledger in Smokey Shadow on Fine Linen cardstock to mimic the journaling paper in the inspiration piece. Then I stamped the images from Rosie Posie in True Black over it. The background pattern turned out so rich looking and has a damask feel to it.
The die cut from kraft cardstock, and images, and sentiment are all from the Mat Stack 4 Collection.
Since I was having such a good time with the inspiration pieces, I kept going and created a card with the Tag-its #11 set using another piece of inspiration in my idea file...
This is a quilt I marked on Pinterest that was orginally for sale at Garnet Hill.
I stamped and punched out the heart frame image, with the little heart stamped into the opening of each frame, in various colors and attached them onto a True Black card base. I stitched everything down to complete the quilty look.
I added the new die cut and image in black from the new Happy Day set by Lisa. I added a sentiment and row of hearts from Tag-its #11 in the piece.
Make sure that you stop over to Nichole's blog to link up to the whole design team to see their inspiration and projects with the Rosie Posie set. Beth, Lisa, and Melissa will all be sharing projects made with their new sets on their blogs too.
See you tomorrow for the last day of the countdown!
