Sending You Happy Mail

Hi! Thanks for dropping by for Day 2 of the Pretty Pink Posh May Release Blog Hop! Hop along for lots of inspiration and prizes!

Be sure to leave comments on each stop. Pretty Pink Posh is giving away 4 $25 gift certificates to four random comments (2 winners each day) left before May 14, 2018 at 11:59 PM PST. The winners will be announced next week on the PPP Blog!



My first card features the new Flourishing Fuchsias Stamp Set. I really love the elegance of the fuchsias.


I started by cutting a piece of white cardstock for the card front and used a stencil brush to add a pale aqua ink and pale yellow ink to the background. Next I used the new Hugs Shaker Die, cutting it once directly into the card front and again from aqua cardstock. I inlayed the die cut in the card front added acetate behind the die cut. Inside the circle I attached few of the new Sparkling Clear Jewels to a piece of cardstock. I just love all the jewels PPP as added to their product line. The jewels are just beautiful! 


All my stamped images are colored with Copic Markers. The flowers and leaves are stamped with the new Flourishing Fuchsias Stamp Set and die cut with the Flourishing Fuchsias Coordinating Dies. The butterflies and sentiment are from the new Butterfly Friends Stamp Set and die cut with the Butterfly Friends Coordinating Dies.


My second card features two new stamps set and coordinating dies. The puppy is just one of the adorable new images in the new Playful Puppies Stamp Set and die cut with the Playful Puppies Coordinating Dies. The mail box, bird, envelope, and sentiment are from the new Happy Mail Stamp Set and die cut with the Happy Mail Coordinating Dies


The circle frame is cut with the Scallop Circles Dies. Behind the circle I cut the grass with the Scallop Borders Dies and the fence with the Picket Fence Die. I finished off with a few Sparkling Clear Jewels

Thanks for hopping along! Be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win! You can stop by the Pretty Pink Posh Blog for all the details!
