Pretty Pink Posh Product Release Blog Hop


Welcome to Day 2 of the Pretty Pink Posh November Product Release Blog Hop! I am SO excited be a Guest Designer for Pretty Pink Posh as Paulina releases her first stamp sets and coordinating dies!

For this blog hop you should have arrived her from Nicole Baez's Blog. I will list the participants of this hop towards the end of the post if you missed any stops. Make sure you visit all the blogs and leave a comment. There are two giveaways. The details are below.

I made three cards to share today. I just had so much fun playing with the new products!


My first card is created with the new Holiday Pals Stamp Set and the Holiday Pals Coordinating Dies. I started by creating my background by sponging distress ink on white card stock and misting the ink with water. 

The background is framed with the new Scallop Frames Dies, cut from a glitter card stock. I seriously love this frame set; it is so versatile!


The sweet images are colored with Copic Markers and then die cut with the  Holiday Pals Coordinating Dies, along with the tree in the background. I added a little fun flock the the hat and the bunny tail. The sentiment is from the Holiday Pals Stamp Set. 

Once the card was put together I added 4mm Clear Droplets to the background. So pretty!!


My second card is a shaker card created with the smaller die in the Scallop Frames Dies. The background on this card is also done with distress inks and then I stamped and embossed snowflakes with stamps in the Holiday Pals Stamp Set.


I stamped the trees and the gifts in Delicata Golden Glitz Ink, embossed with gold embossing powder, and colored with Copic Markers. I added a piece of acetate behind the frame and the stripes of foam tape to form the shaker.

Then I dropped in the beautiful sequins from the new 4mm Whimsical Forest Sequins Mix and the 6mm Whimsical Forest Sequins Mix. I added the branches to the top of the card. The sentiment is included in the Holiday Pals Stamp Set.


And lastly I created a card with place for a gift card with another new stamp set, the Winter Friends Stamp Set. I used the larger of the Scallop Frames Dies and the Pocket Border Die to form the pocket for the gift card.


I stamped the coffee cup and snowflakes with stamps in the Winter Friends Stamp Set on Kraft Card Stock with a white pigment ink and embossed with a white embossing powder and then added color with Copic Markers. The card is finished off with sequins from the 4mm Whimsical Forest Sequins Mix  and 6mm Whimsical Forest Sequins Mix

I hope you have enjoyed my cards for blog hop! You next stop on the hop is Nichol Magouirk.
