Rosey Posey cards

Hello! I am posting a couple cards I made using the Papertrey Rosey Posey set. This set is so versatile! I loved it from the moment I go t it, but even more once I saw the shading techniques Amber used on her card sets here on her blog. She is an amazing card maker, and so giving - she's provided so may templates for free on her blog - you NEED to check them out! Anyway, I thought I'd give this shading technique a try. I used copics instead of the colored pencils Amber used. The colored pencils probably would have given you a little more control, and I may have to give them a try at some point, but I like the way these turned out. It takes a while to do all the shading. I did a big 8 x 11 piece of cardstock and then cut it into quarters to place on the front of cards. Did I say it took quite a while to do all the shading??? But it was worth it! Here are my cards:

I used PTI Royal Velvet and Melon Berry cardstock for the card bases, Versamagic Tea leaves and Spring Pansy ink, and PTI melon berry and aqua mist ink. The ribbons were from an Offray outlet near me. Thanks for looking!


  1. So pretty, Susan! I just tried out this shading a few days ago, and now I don't think I'll be able to stamp them without adding something!

    Great cards!
