Pretty Pink Posh – August Release Instagram Hop Day 2

Hey crafty friends! Today I’m extra excited to be joining Pretty Pink Posh as a guest designer for their August Release Instagram Hop! Below will be all the details for my fun card but be sure to head to Instagram to comment and hop for chances to win a $30 gift certificate for each day of the hop!

I had so much fun stamping and coloring these adorable Halloween Critters! I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and when I was playing around with placement I thought it would be fun to create a shaker for them.

To create that part, I ink blended distress oxide ink in lucky clover, mowed lawn and twisted citron on an A2 panel and spritzed it with water. I blotted that dry and flicked black paint across the panel. While that was drying, I cut a wonky stitched rectangle from black cardstock and then used the next smallest size to cut from the center of that, creating a frame. I used the largest one again to cut an acetate window and adhered them together. I added foam tape to the back, sprinkled some Spooky Fun embellishment mix to my inked panel before sealing it all up.

I added the critters with foam squares across the arch of the window opening. Then for my sentiment, I pulled in the pink and purple from the embellishment mix by stamping and heat embossing my sentiment on those colors of cardstock. I used the coordinating die to cut out the script word and went digging for something to cut the smaller part. I found that the ruler die from Crafty Critters perfectly cuts out the “you are” sentiment in this set! I totally wrote that on a sticky note and put it in my packaging so I didn’t forget next time!

For finishing touches on my card, I added glossy accents to the pumpkin faces and critter noses. Then, black glaze pen to the bear’s eyes. Isn’t this card so fun and adorable!?! I just love these new critters!

Pretty Pink Posh – August Release Blog Hop Day 3

Hey friends! I’m so excited to be guest designing for the Pretty Pink Posh August release! This is day 3 of the release blog hop. So after you hop and comment along today’s designers, be sure to go back and do the same for day 1 and 2 to increase your chances of winning!

Now, on to some spooky fun inspiration for you!

I paired the adorable ghostie images from Ghost Friends with the new Layered Ghosts stencils! They’re all so much fun and definitely too cute to spook! I used white pigment ink with the stencil on black cardstock and then came in with glitz glitter gel for the faces and stars. I love the little bit of sparkle.

Then I stamped and colored the sweet witchy ghost with copic markers, stamped a sentiment in the set and used the coordinating dies to cut all of that out. To create a focal point for my ghost, I ink blended a scrap of white cardstock with distress oxide ink in seedless preserves and dusty concord, then spritzed it with water and blotted it dry. I used the smaller scalloped diamond tag to cut it out and started assembling my card.

First, I trimmed the stenciled panel down to 4×5.25 inches and popped it up on a card base with foam tape. Then I added the diamond with foam squares along with the sentiment. However, to take the fun factor of this card to the next level, I added that sweet ghost with an action wobbler! Sometimes I forget I have these in my stash but I immediately thought a flying ghost needed it!

For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the witch hat and strip of the broom too.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Here is a list of the products I used.

Pretty Pink Posh – Rawr!

Welcome back everyone! Thanks for stopping by. Today I have a really fun card to share with you featuring those great dinosaurs from the most recent Pretty Pink Posh release.

I’m a huge dinosaur lover, plus I have a great inside joke with a friend that includes a dino that looks a ton like the T-Rex from Dinosaur Friends. Her favorite color happens to be pink and I couldn’t resist creating this custom, super fun card for her!

I started with an A2 white panel and three different pink dye inks from my stash. I pulled out the Layered Dinosaurs stencils and inked them up one layer at a time. Once it was finished I trimmed the panel down to 4×5.25 inches and set it aside.

Next, I stamped and colored images from Dinosaur Friends in a variety of pink colors that coordinated with the inks in my background. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and set them aside while I cut one of the Stitched Photo Frames from white cardstock. I pulled the RAWR! sentiment from Dinosaur Additions and stamped it on the bottom section. Next, I lined the back of the opening with vellum and adhered my images with liquid glue. Then, I added foam strips and squares to the back and adhered it to the left side of my stenciled panel.

Before adding the panel to a card base, I thought it needed something extra so I wrapped pink twine around the right side and tied it in a bow. I added foam tape to the back of the panel and popped it on a card base.

For finishing touches I added glossy accents to the spikes on the dinosaur’s back and black glaze pen to his eye. Then I added a little Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the palm trees for shimmery fun.

Isn’t this card totally adorable it all it’s unconventional glory?!? I seriously love it and my friend was so excited when she received it.

Pretty Pink Posh – Stomping By Card and Tag Combo

Hi again! Today I’m popping in to share a really fun card and tag combo using the super adorable dinosaurs from the Pretty Pink Posh June release. I had so much fun creating these and wanted to share them with you.

I started by stamping and coloring a bundle of images from Dinosaur Friends and Dinosaur Additions and colored them with my copic markers. I had too many for my mini scene so I thought it was a perfect opportunity to create a coordinating tag.

For the card, I ink blended the top third of an A2 size piece of white cardstock with distress oxide ink in blueprint sketch and rustic wilderness. Then I spread gold glitz gel through the stars on the Dino Dig stencil. When that was dry, I added a piece of white cardstock with foam tape and adhered a 1/4 inch strip of black cardstock to the top edge with scrappy tape. I added my images with a combo of foam squares and liquid glue.

This is when I had the idea to split the sentiment between the stamp and the new Script Hello die cut. So I carefully masked and stamped part of the sentiment in the sky and heat embossed it in white, then die cut hello 3 times from black cardstock and adhered it with liquid glue. I think this turned out super cute and fun!

I still had this cute T-Rex and his bones leftover, along with some dino footprints, that just couldn’t go to waste. So I cut the Birthday Circles tag from white cardstock twice, as well as the circle die from the set. I inked one circle up the same as the card front and adhered my images. I lined the back of both tags with acetate, sprinkled some star glitter on one and glued them together with scrappy tape for an instant bond.

I added the dino circle to the front side but didn’t want the back to be ugly so I stamped Rawr! and added the footprints with foam squares. I thought it was a fun little touch.

I hope you enjoyed these little projects using lots of Pretty Pink Posh June release products!

Pretty Pink Posh – June Release Instagram Hop

Hello again! I’m super excited to be taking part in the Pretty Pink Posh Instagram Hop for the June release today. I have a really simple but SUPER FUN card to share with you!

I used the new Layered Dinosaurs stencil set to ink up a panel. These guys are so absolutely adorable and the stencils are layered so perfectly that they are easy to ink in different colors with little to no masking. It’s fabulous! I can’t wait to try different color palettes to change the look.

Once my panel was inked up, I trimmed it to A2 size and adhered it to a white card base. Then I cut a 1/2 inch strip of black cardstock and a 1/4 inch strip of green and adhered them together. I used foam strips to add them to the left edge of my card. Then I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from Dinosaur Friends on a Stitched Labels die and popped that up with foam squares in the upper middle of my stenciled panel.

Isn’t this card just too fun!?! I love the entire June release from Pretty Pink Posh and can’t wait to create so many different projects with it! Head to Instagram and hop along with us for a chance to win a gift card to the shop.

Pretty Pink Posh – Blog Hop Day 3

Hey friends! I’m ridiculous excited to be celebrating with Pretty Pink Posh once again for the June release! It went live a few days ago and this is the final day of the blog hop. I have a super fun slimline card to share with you featuring Across the Miles stamps, Layered Roads stencil set and the Just a Note Script die.

I started by laying out my road stencil on a slimline panel to see how it would fill and then placed my stamps on that to figure out which cars I wanted to use. Once that was decided, I stamped the images and colored everything with copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and set them aside to get inky!

I used blending brushes and dye inks to add grass and dirt with one layer of the stencils and then went back in to add the road and finally used distress oxide to add the road dashes because the pigment ink will sit on top of the dye ink and show up better.

I die cut the Just a Note Script from teal cardstock and glued it up in the sky but it was so flat compared to my popped up cars that I thought it needed more. So I cut it from the same teal again and also white two more times. I used liquid glue to adhere the layers together and it shows up so much better!

For finishing touches I added glossy accents to the lights everywhere and the hubcaps too. I added white gel pen highlights to all of the windows and finished the design off by stamping the car sounds above the bus and car. I think those are just too cute!

Before gluing my panel to a slimline card base, I stamped a sentiment and image on the inside just for fun. I don’t do this often but I really loved the sentiment and wanted to make sure it was part of my card.

Remember, there are three $30 gift cards to the Pretty Pink Posh shop up for grabs. So be sure to comment and hop along on all three days of the hop to increase your chances of winning!

Pretty Pink Posh – Sending Monster Hugs

Hey crafty friends! I’m popping in this afternoon with a fun shaker card I create this weekend with my most recent Pretty Pink Posh haul. It wasn’t a huge order but it had somethings I have been wanting for a while and was very excited to play!

I knew I wanted to pair some cute monsters with the stitched film strip die, so that’s where I started. Once I chose my images, I stamped and colored them with copic markers, using the coordinating dies to cut them out. Then, instead of cutting a white film strip frame, I inked up a scrap of cardstock with blue, teal and green inks and cut my frame from that. I love how this part turned out. To keep the background neutral, I inked up a strip of white cardstock lightly with black ink.

To turn the stitched film strip die into a shaker, I adhered the monsters behind the inked frame and then glued a piece of acetate to that. I added foam tape to the film strip frame and filled the wells with Wishing on Rainbow Stars embellishments from Twiddler’s Nook and sealed the panel up with the black ink blended strip I had ready to go.

For a little outer space whimsy, I decided to use two of the three layers from the Spooky Sky stencil set. I started with a 4×5.25 inch panel of gray cardstock and inked the edges with gray ink for a little depth. Then I used white pigment ink on the cloud stencil layer and finished the panel off with yellow ink on the star layer. Using the shaker strip as a guide, I stamped my sentiment in the lower left corner and then added the panel to a card base with foam tape.

I used liquid glue to add the shaker strip to the card from and finished the whole design off with black blaze pen on the eyes and glossy accents on the antennae and horns of the monsters.

I think secretly I’m ready for Halloween or something. I keep being really drawn to all of the things I would usually pull out for spooky crafting. This totally makes me giggle. I suppose it’s like those who love Christmas all year long.

Pretty Pink Posh – Happy Mail

Hello again! I’m so glad you’re here. Today I have an absolutely ADORABLE card featuring a new layering stencil from Pretty Pink Posh and some previously released stamps and dies. I just adore this puppy and was so happy to finally ink him up for this card. He is just the cutest!

I started my card by stamping the image and sentiment from Sending Love and colored it with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut him out and switched to inking up my background.

I took a white piece of cardstock and inked up the base layer of the stencil with light gray ink. Then I added a light teal ink to the second layer, adding a darker blue for the postage marks. Last, I spread red glitz glitter gel through the final layer for red sparkly hearts all over this fun background.

While the glitz was drying I die cut the Spring Circles tag shape from vellum and the circle from teal cardstock. I popped the puppy up with foam squares on the circle and popped that up on more foam squares on the vellum. Then I added the sentiment to the bottom of the box and used tape runner to adhere the whole thing to the stenciled panel.

I added the panel to a white card base and switched to just a couple of simple finishing touches. I added Stickles to the labels on the box and glossy accents to the puppy’s nose, tongue and collar tag.

I just think this is such a cute card and perfect for literally any occasion! I hope you liked it too!

Pretty Pink Posh – Colorful Word Shaker Card

Hello everyone! I’m back with another card featuring the May release from Pretty Pink Posh. Today I created a fantastic background with the new Crafty World layering stencil set and added a shaker element for interactive fun!

This is a three layer stencil set that I inked up with blending brushes and dye inks, with the exception of the white which is a pigment ink and also the layer I started with because of that. These stencils are so wonderfully planned out that I didn’t even mask anything off while inking them up.

Once the stenciling was done, I trimmed the panel down to 4×5.25 inches and added it to a white card base with foam tape. Then I cut the smaller Scallop Circle die from white cardstock 5 times and a regular circle from acetate once. I stamped an heat embossed the sentiment from Craft Sentiments on the acetate and then used liquid glue to adhere all the layers together.

I thought these color wheels were perfect for the crafty theme and the colorful sentiment that I chose. So, I added some to my card front and glued the circle over the top, sealing them in. I placed an acrylic block on top to assure it all dried flat.

Voila! My card is all finished. I thought this would be just perfect to send to a crafty friend.

Pretty Pink Posh – May Release Instagram Hop

Hello again! The excitement is still going and today I am apart of the Pretty Pink Posh May Release Instagram Hop! I have this really fun card featuring the Crafty Sentiments stamps along with the Crafty Days stamps and dies.

Seriously, how cute is that koala and his little scissors! I just love him! He is colored with copic markers and die cut with the coordinating die. Then I used the scalloped square die in the set to create a yellow mat for him. I love the teal and yellow together! I adhered them together with foam squares.

Next, I took an A2 size panel and one of the border stamps in the set and repeat stamped it down the page. I cut a 1 1/2″ strip of white cardstock and stamped my sentiment on the left side. I adhered a strip of silver glitter paper to the top and popped it up on the stamped panel with foam tape. With a combination of foam tape and liquid glue I adhered the scalloped rectangle next.

For finishing touches today, I added black glaze pen the the koala’s eyes and nose. Then I glued a scattering of metallic silver pearls across the design for a little shine and interest.

I don’t know about you guys but the person getting this card is going to have to be pretty darn special to me. Hahaha!!!
