Pretty Pink Posh November Blog Hop - Day 1



Welcome to Day 1 of the Pretty Pink Posh November Release Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Angelica Conrad Blog you are on the right track. I’ll list all of today’s blog hop participants below, if you want to start at the beginning.

Be sure to leave comments on each stop. Paulina is giving away four  $25 gift certificates to four random comments (2 winners each day) left before 11:59 PM PDT on 11/20/2018 PM PDT. Be sure to return to the PPP Blog and see if you are one of the winners! 

I have two cards to share with you today! 


My first card features the new Stitched Ornaments Dies. These dies make a quick, elegant card! On the center ornament I stamped a sentiment from the Holiday Greetings Stamp Set. The snowflakes are stamped with images in the Winter Wonderland Stamp Set. I stamped the snowflakes in Versamark Ink and embossed with white embossing powder. I hung the ornaments with twine and created the frame with the Stitched Notes Dies. (Products are linked below) 


At the top I added branches with the Pine Bough Dies and the holly with the Elegant Holly Stamp Set and die cut with the Elegant Holly Coordinating Dies. The holly is colored with Copic Markers. The sparkle is added with jewels in the Holiday Jewels Mix.


On my second card I used the Poinsettias Stamp Set and the Poinsettias Coordinating Dies. I stamped the images in Versamark Ink and embossed with gold embossing powder and colored with Copic Marker. I added Metallic Gold Jewels to the center of the flowers. 


The sentiment is die cut with the new Seasons Greetings Script DiesI glued several layers of the sentiment together to add depth and added a coat of glitter with a glitter pen to the top of the sentiment. 

Thanks for stopping by! The next stop on the hop is Mindy Baxter
