Pretty Pink Posh January Release Blog Hop - Day 2

Hi and welcome to Day 2 of the Pretty Pink Posh January Release Blog Hop and Birthday Celebration!! I have two cards to share with you today featuring products from the January Release. Be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win a prize!

If you’ve been hopping along, you should be arriving from the talented Eloise Blue

My first card features the new Crocus Flowers Stamp Set and the Crocus Flowers Coordinating Dies. I colored the flowers and leaves with Copic Markers and then die cut the images. After playing around with the layout I decided to created a soft background with Oxide Distress Inks, Mowed Lawn and Squeezed Lemonade. 

I die cut the sentiment with the new Happy Birthday Script Die. I die cut the sentiment twice, once from a light weight chipboard and once from purple cardstock and then adhered the layer together. I like the way the layers add more depth to the words. I finished off the card with a few jewels from the new Sugar Plum Jewels Mix. 

To create the second card I used the pretty Floral Hearts Stamp Set and the Floral Hearts Coordinating Dies. My stamped images are colored with Copic Markers. The additional flowers and leaves are stamped with the Build A Bloom Stamp Set and die cut with the Build A Bloom Coordinating Dies. This is a previously release stamp set that is prefect for adding a little extra detail. 

To create the interlocking hearts, I cut out each heart with the Floral Hearts Coordinating Dies. Then I cut the hearts again directly in the card front. Then I inlayed the two stamped hearts into the card front and used tape on the back side to hold the hearts in place. I finished off the card with a few different sizes and colors of jewels from the new Party Jewels Mix. 

Leave comments along the way on each blog hop for your chance to win prizes. Pretty Pink Posh is giving away NINE $25 gift certificates to people who comment during the blog hop. Spend $100 and receive a not-yet-released stamp set!

Pretty Pink Posh January Release is Available!

Hi Everyone! The Pretty Pink Posh January Release is now available! Pretty Pink Posh is celebrating turning five years old! You can check out all the new products here.

Here's a look at the new Pinata Party Stamp Set and Pinata Party Coordinating Dies. 

I started by creating my background. I cut a piece of watercolor paper to fit the card front and sponged on three colors of Oxide Distress Inks and then spritzed  with water. I let paper dry and then stamped the sentiment from the Pinata Party Stamp Set in Versamark Ink and embossed with white embossing powder. I colored the piñata with Copic Markers and used a glitter pen to add a coat of glitter to the horn, mane, and tail.Using foam tape I attached twine to the piñata.  I used five different colors of inks to stamp the banners. 

Using the Misti Stamping Tool I randomly stamped confetti and streamers in different colors on the card front. So fun and festive! I finished off the card with jewels from the new Party Jewels Mix. 

Thanks for stopping by! Stop by the PPP Blog of all the release details.

Spellbinders With Love Etched Die

Hi Everyone! I hope your New Year is off to a good start! I have been battling a cold that is slowly me down a bit. I still need to pack up my Christmas decor! Today I am popping in with a wedding card created with the Spellbinders With Love Etched Die

I love the beautiful details and elegance of this silhouette. The set of three dies includes a floral frame with an insert rim to cut out the center, and a With Love sentiment. I decided I wanted to make a card for an upcoming wedding and went with a classic black, white, and gold theme. 

I cut the With Love Die twice, once from white cardstock and once again from black card stock. On the black die cut I did not punch out any of the detailed die cuts. 

Next I die cut the insert rim from black cardstock and then die cut the sentiment directly into the center of the panel. I cut the rim die a second time from gold foil and layered it behind the sentiment. Then I inlayed the gold vines into the card front. 

I rounded the corners of the card front and the layered the black and white die cuts on the card front. I attached the sentiment with form tape to add dimension and finished off the card with a few gold jewels.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi and Happy New Year! I am kicking off the New Year with a pretty card created with products from Pretty Pink Posh and celebrating another term on the Pretty Pink Posh Design Team! Paulina is amazing to work with and love working with her products. One of my crafting resolutions is to make more birthday cards! I never seem to have enough and now all my friends and family expect a handmade card!

My card is created with the Wild Rose Stamp Set and Wild Rose Coordinating Dies. This is one of my very favorite flower stamp set.  I love the contemporary, modern  feel of the flowers. I colored the flowers and leaves with Copic Markers and added Lemon Drop Jewels to the center of the flowers. 

To create the background I cut a piece of black cardstock to fit the card front. I splattered on white paint and then sponged the edges with white pigment ink. The sentiment is from the Everyday Greetings Stamp Set. 

Have a great first day of a New Year! It always feels like a fresh start!
