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!

Next up on the hop is Nicky Meek.
