Trio of Roses

Welcome to The Paper Players challenge, where this week Joanne has a fun color combo for us to try.


I wanted to try my new Misti with some multi-step stamping and chose to use my new Altenew Vintage Roses set.


I had to stretch the challenge just a tad, because my foam Strawberry Slush pad does not play nicely when second- and third-generation stamping, leaving a splotchy mess, so I had to choose a lighter and darker ink that were in the same tone to work with Strawberry Slush.  I hope this is okay with the rest of the team.

So, using my Misti, I stamped the roses in two different sizes using Cotton Candy, Strawberry Slush and Lipstick Red inks.  I then fussy cut each of the roses.  The leaves were stamped in Pistachio Pudding and the sentiment in Ranger Archival Black.

I die cut a thin frame from Coastal Cabana cardstock and inlaid it into the card base.


Thanks for visiting.  The rest of the design team have done some amazing things with these colors so be sure to check them out.

Products used:

Stamps:  Vintage Roses, Label Love (Altenew)
Ink:  Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding (SU), Cotton Candy, Lipstick Red (SSS), Ranger Archival Black
Cardstock:  White, Coastal Cabana (SU)
Accessories:  Frames die (SSS)

Cheers
Karren

Don’t you just love the MISTI? I don’t know how I ever stamped without it. Your flowers are gorgeous and really pop off of the clean design. I love how you did the sentiment, too. So pretty! :)

Soooo pretty Karren - I have been reading so much about it, I'm going to have to get me a Misti methinks; still not sure I'll be able to create cards like yours though unfortunately! Those roses look amazing and the sentiment adds a fun modern edge. Thanks for rocking my colour challenge this week!
