Pretty Pink Posh January Release Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh January Release Blog Hop! Pretty Pink Posh is celebrating their 4th Birthday and we are excited to share the new release with you!


I have two cards to share today that send thoughts of love to someone special! 


I used the new Love Shaker Die to create this shaker card. I started by cutting a piece of watercolor paper to fit just inside the card base. I cut the Love Shaker Die directly into the card front so that I could tell where I wanted to place the stamped hearts. Next I stamped the sentiment and a variety of hearts from the new Love Sentiments Stamp Set in copper ink and embossed with copper embossing powder. To add color to the background I used a blending took and Distress Oxide Ink in Worn Lipstick. 


I die cut the  Love Shaker Die again from a copper foil cardstock and inlayed the die cut in the center of the card. Behind the heart window is acetate and foam tape to for the shaker. I dropped in two of the new sequins mixes, Rose Gold Heart Confetti and Iridescent Heart Confetti Mix


My next card features the new Cupid Friends Stamp Set and the Cupid Friends Coordinating Dies. I started out with a panel of watercolor paper again, I stamped hearts from the Cupid Friends Stamp Set in white pigment ink and embossed with white embossing powder. Then I sponged on Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass and spritzed the paper with water. 


The cutout is die cut with the Window Frames Dies and I added the scalloped border with the Stitched Borders 4 Dies. The sweet cupids are colored with Copic Markers and die cut with the Cupid Friends Coordinating Dies.. I finished off the card with sequins from the Assorted Heart Confetti Mix
