Taylored Expressions February Sneak Peek: Posh Posies

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to the second day of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions! Today I am showing a project from the darling full size stamp set: Posh Posies and the Silhouette Stems 1 dies. I love silhouettes - both to stamp and dies - it makes it so quick to create a card and you can cut so many different textures with your dies! I create a little cloud scene for my card and used the Silhouette Dies to cut out the posies in Twilight Dark card stock and then cut them out again in some Intense Orange card stock - and then cut the orange part of the posies and adhered them to the blue stems. I then layered this onto the newest cutting plate - my favorite one so far - the Circle Cutting Plate that I cut with
Jetstream blue card stock:

The rest was very simple - the sentiment "You're in my thoughts" cut with the Banner Stacklets that I adhered to two buttons stacked together with some twine and glue dots and then I finished it off with some Orange glimmer ribbon. I also added a little bit of orange stickles to the posies for a bit of shine and then stamped on the inside with the silhouette stamps in three different color inks: Tangelo, Dandelion and Cantaloupe from Memento. Here is a look at the inside of the card
I loved using the contrasting colors of blue and orange and represented the sun with the buttons - as if the posies were bowing down as the sun was beginning to set: This is such a pretty set and the coordinating dies make it so much fun to create different sets of elegant and posh flowered cards!

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Posh Posies from Taylored Expressions
Paper: Twilight Dark , Jetstream blue Intense Orange card stock and Choice Snow White card stock from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Tangelo, Dandelion, Cantaloupe and Summer Sky
Accessories: buttons layered together with glue dot, twine, orange stickler, Circles Cutting Plate, Cloud Border die, Banner stacklets, Silhouette stems 1 dies, MS grass punch and Orange glimmer ribbon.
