Fall Florals

Hi there! Welcome to day one of the August Papertrey Ink countdown.  

So glad you could join me!  Today I bring you a look at one of Dawn McVey's new sets. Fall Florals... A gorgeous new floral set that's perfect for fall, and honestly... all year around!  Create some unique floral accents with this set of products. Play with layering for lots of options. Give it an autumn look with oranges and yellow, or experiment with pinks and purples for looks appropriate for other seasons.
My first sample is perfectly suited for fall.  It's muted color combo of tropical teal, true black, autumn rose and gold inks look perfectly cozy on a sweet blush card base.
A few black rhinestones and a sentiment from the Scripted stamp set finish the card off perfectly.
Today entire ensemble sticks to an overall color theme of pinks, oranges, and teals.  Yet, it lends itself to two completely different looks.  Proving just how versatile the Fall Florals stamp set truly is.
My first card yields a softer look, these two are a bold contrast. They feature a color combo of black, tropical teal, Hawaiian shores, hibiscus burst, and orange zest that pops off of the white card base.
As for the ink application, this one features a bit of stamping with water.  Here's How:  I inked up the solid flower bases, sprayed it with a bit of water, and then stamped.  Over that I stamped the dots in the same color.
Here's How: I embossed the sentiment in black and then simply stamped the solid circles over that.  Here's a Tip:  To prevent smearing, press a paper towel onto the embossing to pickup the excess ink.

Well, that concludes today's look at Fall Florals. Just remember... all that you have seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning August 15th

  4. Love your color combination on the fall card! With gold accents!!

  5. I could sit and stare at these all day long, Maile. So punchy and graphic on white and so muted on Blush. I love them all!

  6. Your cards are a beautiful showing of how versitile the Fall Florals stamp set is. I love how it looks on the Sweet Blush cardstock.

  7. Simply stunners, all of them! The sweet blush added a vintage feel to the contemporary stamps, great example. Definitely adore that one!

  8. your cards are so pretty, maile! do you have any tips on heat embossing? everytime I try, my paper (even the thick PTI cardstock) tends to curl and I can't ever get it to go flat again. thanks :)

  9. I like how you used the solid circle flowers to make an interesting background on your second card....thinking outside the box.

  10. Hi Maile Belles,
