CAS Roses


Just having some fun with Papertrey Ink's The Sweet Life stamp and die set.  The stamp set involves three step stamping, so you need shades which provide some contrast.
 I originally wanted to go for yellow roses but didn't have several shades of yellow, though I plan to try yellow and orange.  The dies are fabulous - the card stock just pops out effortlessly!
This is my favourite type of card to make, a bright pop of color against a crisp white background.  
Working with such bright inks certainly brightens up a cold winter day!
I've also posted this for today's Free For All Challenge, Springtime in December at Splitcoaststampers.
Supplies include:
Papertrey Ink The Sweet Life stamps, dies
Papertrey Ink Signature Greetings
Stampin Up Lavender Lace, Orchid Opulence, Pink Passion, Certainly Celery, Lucky Limeade ink
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Smooth White card stock
Creative Experessions Lattice embossing folder
