Pretty Pink Posh October Release Blog Hop Day 2


Hi and welcome to Day 2 o f the Pretty Pink Posh October Release Blog Hop. The hop will be full inspiration for Holiday projects!

Be sure to leave a comment as you hop! There are 4 $25 gift certificates up for grabs (two winners each day). Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop. Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PST on 10/22/2019. Winners will be announced on the PPP blog.


I have two cards to share with you! My first card features the Winter Scene Die and the Leaves & Berries Stencil. To create the background I used the Leaves & Berries Stencil with a white pigment ink. The scene in the center is so easy to create with the Winter Scene Die. The night sky is ink blended and I added embossing paste to hills of snow to add some texture. 


I added the floral embellishment with the new Winter Wreath Stamp Set and the Winter Wreath Coordinating Dies. I stamped in Versamark Ink, embossed with white embossing powder and colored with Copic Markers. The sentiment is from the Holiday Greetings Stamp Set. I finished off the card with confetti from the new Classic Christmas Confetti Mix


Next up is the Joy Stamp Set and the Joy Coordinating Dies. So fun! I stamped "JOY" on white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. Then I die cut a panel of aqua cardstock with the largest die in the Stitched Notes Dies. And then I cut the Joy Coordinating Dies directly into the panel to frame the stamped image. 

I framed the panel with white cardstock and trimmed the edges with the Stitched Borders 2 Dies. The sentiment, Santa hat, and holly are all included in the Joy Stamp Set. I added three red berries to the Santa hat from the new Merry Confetti Mix

Here is the complete blog hop list for today:

  15. I absolutely love trees, so the first card really got my attention. Not only did you have a wonderful woodland scene with the trees but you used the leaf stencil to make a dynamite background for the card!! I also really like your JOY card and the way you used a die to make the "fancy edge" to the white panel.
    Both your cards are fantastic and some of my favorite from this 2 day hop! :)
