Brushed Blooms and You've Been Framed: Oval...
March 11, 2015
Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the March Papertrey Ink countdown! I have a few more projects today using the new Brushed Blooms set and I'm also going to sneak in some peeks of the new You've Been Framed: Oval. Yesterday I showed you some projects using You've Been Framed: Diamond, today's it's the oval's turn. :-)
All of the products I mention as new on today's post will be available for purchase from the Papertrey Ink site as of 10pm Eastern time on March 15th, 2015.
First is a card that uses just the You've Been Framed: Oval set and coordinating die. I diecut the oval frame from Aqua Mist cardstock. I also cut it from Pure Poppy and then took just the negative portions from above and below the oval and ran them through my machine again, this time with the Cover Plate: Twist die.
To embellish the oval I used some of the little miscellaneous dies that are included in the You've Been Framed: Oval die collection - there is a lot of negative space in these dies, which allowed me to nest a few other shapes to coordinate with some of the design elements in the You've Been Framed stamp sets. I love how this die coordinates with that delicate floral swag. The smaller half-oval Harvest Gold diecuts were also cut using one of the smaller dies included in the set. The sentiment is from You've Been Framed: Oval as well.

Next up is a card that combines both You've Been Framed: Oval and Brushed Blooms. I started out by "smooshing" a background with Harvest Gold and Limeade Ice inks. Then I layered the You've Been Framed: Oval diecut over the top, cut from Harvest Gold cardstock. I also cut just the solid oval piece from Fresh Snow Linen cardstock.
The oval was stamped with the striped partial oval found in the You've Been Framed: Oval set using Winter Wisteria ink. I stamped it at the top and at the bottom of the oval, then stamped the sentiment, also from You've Been Framed: Oval using Summer Sunrise ink. Then I diecut a few of the large bouquets from Brushed Blooms, stamped them with their coordinating images and tucked them under the solid oval diecut.

Next up is my favorite card of the day. I went a little different direction with the color scheme and also went kind of crazy adding lots of random brushstroke details from the various little strokes and doo-dads included in the stamp set. I didn't think too much about placement, I just sort of went for it. This would be a good set to try Ashley's doodling technique with too!
I positioned two of the large bouquet diecuts on my card front. The leaves are Tropical Teal with brushstrokes done in Pinefeather (stamped off once) and the flowers are Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz, Orange Zest, and Summer Sunrise. The sentiment is also from Brushed Blooms.

Up next is a very watercolor-y card using Brushed Blooms. Before stamping each image, I misted it with a bit of water, then stamped it onto watercolor paper.
I stamped the sentiment from the Brushed Blooms set using Smokey Shadow for the "always" portion and Hawaiian Shores for the rest. I just love that script font! This card was really pretty quick and easy! Just a bit of black baker's twine finishes it off.
