CPS Sketch Challenge #252

Hi Everyone! It has been a busy week for me, but I did get a little stamping in! Therapy, if you know what I mean. I worked a business conference all last week and my daughter Lisa left for an internship in Germany! 

How about starting the week off with a fun sketch challenge! Taylored Expressions is sponsoring the CPS Sketch for this week. 

I have been wanting to play with my new Rosey Posey Dies and stamp set and this sketch is perfect!

I stamped the roses for the Rosey Posey Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, colored them with Copics, and cut them out with the coordinating Rosey Posey Dies. I used the leaf die to cut out and emboss my leaves and then added a pearl to the center of the rose.

My papers are from October Afternoon Farmhouse. I also added ribbon and lace. 

I layered my roses on two of Taylor's new doily dies, the small and medium Layering Doily. I love these new dies, especially the one with the little hearts. 

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set and added a border with the Large Scallop Border

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you get a chance this week to play along with the sketch.



  1. WOW!!! Those layers are beautiful!! I really like how it all works so well together! I am thinking I may need to break down and get that flower set and dies!

  2. No sewing?! :thud: hee hee Love that paper. I just got that in 12x12 and 6x6. Did you buy anything great at HL on Saturday???
