I Love My Teacher!

Hi Friends! Well it is that time of year when we start thinking about the end of the school year and how we can thank our teachers for all the time, effort, and support that they given our children throughout the school year.


I created a thank card and gift card holder with some great products from Taylored Expressions


I created the background with the Alphabet Soup Cutting Plate. I die cut the cutting plate twice and then adhered the two layers together for extra dimension. I really like this cutting plate and think it would also be great for anything school related, new baby cards, and children's birthday cards. 

I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Pop Ink with the Apple Of My Eye Stamp Set and die cut with the Apple Stacklets. The stem is die cut with the Apple Stem and Seeds die in Granny Smith Ink. (see links below)


I used the Tag Pocket Die to create this gift card holder. The tag would look cute die on a small gift or a gift bag. I added one of the smaller apples in the Apple Of My Eye Stamp Set

Thanks for stopping by! I hope I given you some inspiration to start on your end of school year gifts!

Congrats Grad and a Sale!



Pretty Pink Posh is having a three day sale on the School Friends Stamp Set and School Friends Coordinating Dies. I created a graduation card with the stamps and dies and the new Congrats Grad Stamp Set and Congrats Grad Coordinating Dies. The sets pair perfectly together!!


I started by creating the background using the new Graduation Stencil and black embossing paste. I used a corner rounder to round the edges of the card front. Next I colored the stamped images with Copic Markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. 


I created the frame with the smaller die in the Scallop Frames Dies from red cardstock. The sentiment from the Congrats Grad Stamp Set  is stamped in Versamark Ink and embossed with white embossing powder. I set the sentiment inside the frame and added a piece of vellum behind the frame. At the top of the graduation hat I added a jewel from the Midnight Black Jewels

Have a great rest of the week!

Let's start with the background for my Mothers Day Card. I used the new Leaves Stencil with a green ink on white cardstock. I love the delicate background this new stencil creates. Next I used the Scallop Circles Dies to cut a circle directly into the card front and then used the die again to die cut the pink frame, inlaying the frame in the card front.

The Pretty Pink Posh May Release - Pretty Peonies

Hi Everyone! It's Release Day at Pretty Pink Posh and I am excited to share the new release with you. Father's Day, Mother's Day, Graduation, a beautiful new flower stamp, and PPP first new stencils!  It is one of my favorite release's to date! You can all the new products HERE.


My first project to share with you is created with the new Peonies Stamp Set and Peonies Coordinating Dies. I love these flowers! They are so pretty and so fun to color. Here I colored with Copic Markers but I am will be trying watercolors next. I arranged the flowers on a card front that was die cut with the new Lattice Background Die. This is a great, classic background die that I know I will use over and over. 

Behind the Lattice Background Die I added a sheet of vellum and then a sheet of yellow cardstock for a soft look. The sentiment is from the new Animal Signs Stamp Set. I stamped the sentiment on black cardstock in Versamark Ink and embossed with white embossing powder. I added a few Sparkling Clear Jewels. I love the way the jewels look like dew drops on the flowers. 

Thanks for stopping by. I will be back with more projects and ideas for the new release.

Joy and Sunshine

Hi Crafty Friends! I have been in my studio creating for a couple of new releases but I wanted to pop in today with a card I created with the Koala Friends Stamp Set from Pretty Pink Posh.


I love these sweet Koalas. I stamped them in black ink and colored with Copic Markers and then die cut with the Koala Friends Coordinating Dies. The umbrella is stamped with the Rainy Days Stamp Set. I stamped the umbrella in Versamark Ink on Navy Cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder. The clouds and umbrella handle are die cut with the Rainy Days Coordinating Dies.


I used the Storybook 5 Die to create the card front. I used watercolor paper and Distress Ink in Mowed Lawn, Faded Jeans, and Blueprint Sketch. Behind the card front I added a panel of cardstock sponged with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. The sentiment is from the Rainy Days Stamp Set. I added a few rain drops with the 4mm Clear Droplets.

I stamped a sentiment from the Birthday Friends Stamp Set in Versamark Ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. I finished off the card with a scattering of gold sequins from the Metallic Gold Confetti Mix.

Sending Happy Thoughts

Hi Friends! I have a new card to share today created with products from Pretty Pink Posh. The Spring Wreath Stamp Set is one of my favorites from the latest release. This is a pretty clean and simple card, at least for me! But I liked the simple statement the card makes.


I added a light sponging of Oxide Distress Ink in Shabby Shutter to white cardstock and then stamped the wreath in black ink. I colored the image with Copic Markers and then die cut the wreath with the Spring Wreath Coordinating Dies.  I added twine to hang my wreath with and then die cut the bow with the Twine and Bows Dies

I decided I wanted the middle panel to give the appearance of a door so I used my Scor-Pal to score the vertical lines. Then I stamped a sentiment from the Thoughtful Greetings Stamp Set in the middle of the wreath. I added the largest jewel in the Espresso Jewels for the door knob! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Happy Birthday Friend

Hi Everyone and happy Friday! We are celebrating some birthdays this weekend so I was in need of a few birthday cards. Seems like I can never have too many birthday cards in my stash! I created this card with products from Pretty Pink Posh, and one of my favorite flowers stamp sets, the Wild Rose Stamp Set.

I stamped the roses in Versamark Ink on watercolor paper and embossed with white embossing powder. I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to watercolor the flowers and leaves. I images are die cut with the Wild Rose Coordinating Dies


To create the card front I layered strips of paper. First a strip of patterned paper and then a scalloped border cut the with Stitched Borders Dies from black cardstock. Next I cut a strip of pink cardstock and stamped the birthday sentiment from the Fox Friends Stamp Set along the edge of the strip. The sentiment is from the Everyday Greetings Stamp Set and my final touch is a few Midnight Black Jewels. 


Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
