3 Ways with Altenew's Rosie Posy stamp set

Welcome to a new episode of "3 Ways With", today I am focusing on the Rosie Posy stamp set from Altenew. This is a super cut 2"x3" stamp set which comprises of a floral cluster and a mini sentiment.

As always I have 3 projects to share, each of them this week feature the Rosie Posy used in a different way. Lets jump right in.

 Clean and simple background

For my first card I used the Hello sentiment to stamp a simple background in Obsidian black ink, I love the modern feel this gives. I then stamped the floral cluster twice onto some Solar Crest card with the Obsidian ink.

Using Coral Bliss Crisp ink and a wet brush I added colour to the rose, I did the same using Evergreen ink for the leaves. Once dry I fussy cut the images.

I added the floral clusters to my card using foam tape. I then stamped and cut a sentiment from the Sentiment strips set to finish my card. This card is one of my all time favourite makes. I think it's the clean and modern feel that speaks to my soul.

Embossed Resist

I'm a big fan of embossed resist and ink blending techniques and decided this set was the perfect size to create a background panel with them.

Working on Solar Crest card I stamped and heat embossed the floral cluster several times using the Clear embossing ink and Crisp white embossing powder to give the look of patterned paper. It's important to remember a few things when doing this.... First always using an antistatic bag/ some corn starch or baby powder to avoid embossing powder sticking where you don't want it.  I never stamp in the centre of the card as this looks to forced and lastly, stamp off the edges of the card, this really does make it look like you've used a patterned paper.

To create my ombre background I started blending the Ink from lightest to darkest to avoid contaminating my blending tool.  I used Pearl Pink, Coral Bliss, Crimson and Velvet inks. I always do the inking twice to get a smoother look to the blend. I added sentiments from the Rosie Posy and Sentiments strips stamp sets on white card to finish the card.

Focal Image

On my Solar Crest card  used Coral bliss ink and the Broken chevrons stencil to create some background interest, I didn't want a full background, I like having the pattern fade out near the outer edge of the card.

I stamped and coloured 3 of the floral clusters and coloured them in the same way I did in my first card. I enjoy fussy cutting and this image i easy to cut so took no time at all.

I added 3 of the clusters in the centre of the card using wet glue. I only put glue in the centre of the image and as it dries the edges of the image lift adding dimension to the card. I stamped the Hello sentiment in Obsidian black ink onto white card and adhered it using foam tape.

If you've not tried the obsidian ink I highly recommend it, it gives such a crisp result and is perfect for any water colouring techniques.
