Rainbow Monsters | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Saturday! I usually avoid blogging/social media on weekends, but I really wanted to share this card I made with Pretty Pink Posh’s Halloween release before the Fall release comes out tomorrow! I love ALL the products in the new release and honestly can’t help but want them ALL!

As you probably know, I’m not big on Halloween, but these monsters caught my eye as I can use them for fun birthday cards for little boys (and girls)!

To create this card, I started by stamping ALL the image from the Monster Hugs stamp set and colored them in using copic markers. Color combos listed below. Next I cut them out using the coordinating dies.

I couldn’t decide which monster images NOT to use, so I decided to make a square card using them ALL! I started by die cutting the largest stitched square from Lawn Fawn’s Large Stitched Squares Die Set. I attached the die cut square to the Grid Stencil and inked it up to create a diagonal rainbow using distress oxide inks. I used the following colors : Spun Sugar, Abandoned Coral, Dried Marigold, Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass, and Shaded Lilac.

Once the ink dried, I stamped the sentiment in the middle of the cardbase, and added the colored monsters in the ‘squares’ with foam tape. Lastly I added the card front to a Kraft notecard.

Copic Combos : N0; BG 10, 11, 13; YG 00, 01, 03; RV 21, 23, 25; Y02, 11; YR 14, 16, Y35

Easy Coloring Summer Wreath Card | Pretty Pink Posh

Here on a Sunday? Oops! I had started taking weekends off, but then #thedailymarker30day challenge started, so I kinda got hooked, not a good thing though! I plan on going back to my weekends off on come September!

Today’s card is a “easier” version of my own summer wreath card that I posted a few days ago! I know that not every has the time (or patience!) to create a detailed coloring card, so I wanted to use the same products for a simple and less time consuming card.

To create this card, I started by add Deco Transfer Gel Duo over the squiggles stencils, and let it dry till it was tacky. Then I ran it thought my mini minc machine layered with a sheet of Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheet (in Sky Blue). I peeled it off and saved the negative too as it’ll make for another fun background!

Next I stamped and embossed (in white) the wreath image from the Summer Wreath stamp set, and inked it up with distress oxide inks. I buffed it when I was done ink blending to let the white embossing pop through the ink. I finished off the card with the script Happy Birthday die cut, cut twice from light blue card stock and stacked, along with a sprinkling off some Caribbean Blue sequins.

PNW Coast Inspired Card | Pretty Pink Posh

We spent 4th July weekend on the islands west of Seattle, and as soon as I saw the lighthouse in Port Townsend, I thought about the Pretty Pink Posh Nautical stamp set, and knew I had to use it to create the scene!

If you follow me on Instagram, then you have probably seen as shift in my card making style! I have been trying to make more scene-critter cards and it’s been fun!

To make this card, I started by coloring the boat and lighthouse from the Nautical stamp set, and cutting it out with the coordinating dies. I also stamped and colored some clouds, and the sun from the Fly a Kite stamp set, and cut them out to using the coordinating dies.

Next I inked up two pieces of paper, one with brown ink for the sand, and the second with blue ink to create the water/sea. I added water splatters, along with some black paint splatters to add some depth to the paper. Once it dried, I die cut the brown piece using the Stacked Edge 1 dies, and the water with of the the Stitched Waves dies.

Last piece of the scene was the sky which I create by lightly inking up the card front with some light blue ink, and then dry embossing it with on of the Layered Cloud Stencils, cause you cannot have a PNW sky without some clouds!

I assemebled the card with some glue and foam tape to add dimension, and finished off my stamping the sentiment from the Nautical stamp set, along with some of the birds that I colored in with a black marker.

Summer Wreath | Pretty Pink Posh

Hey there! Anyone that knows me, knows my obsession with Pretty Pink Posh Wreath stamp sets! So even though I didn’t know what I would create with the Summer Wreath stamp set, it got added to my cart! I ended up doing some detailed coloring and loved the end result, so turned it into a card!

I stamp and colored the Summer Wreath image from the Summer Wreath stamp set using Copic Markers, and added some white accents with a gel pen. I die cut it out using the coordinating die set.

Next I created a blue ombre background using distress ink oxides in Salvage Patina, Tumbled Glass, and Salty Ocean along with the Squiggles stencil. I added the die cut wreath on top of it and then used the script Happy Birthday die cut as a sentiment for the card. Lastly, I added some Caribbean Blue sequins to finish off the card.

Sea Friends Slimline | Pretty Pink Posh

It’s been such a fun month guest designing for Pretty Pink Posh that I’m super sad that July is coming to an end! Don’t worry I will still be sharing lots of Pretty Pink Posh inspiration, cause we all know that I am obsessed with their products! If you didn’t get a chance yet, make sure to watch Paulina’s chat with Ellen on YouTube, there’s a sneak peak of the Halloween release coming on August 10th AND those monsters are jumping in my cart ASAP! But till then we play with other critters! Sea creations to be specific!

I’ve recently been loving using all the critter stamps that I’ve been hoarding. I made a card with the Sea Friends stamp set a while back, and decided that I need to use them again with the new stitched waves dies! I started by stamping all the images from the Sea Friends stamp set with copic friendly ink on to heavy weight card stock, and colored them in using alcohol markers, and cut them out using the coordinating dies.

To create the scene the started with a stitched slimline rectangle, and die cut two offset circles. Then I used the same circle die cut to cut two circles, which I went on to cut into wave stripes using one of the stitched waves dies. I inked up each strip with a different color, to create a rainbow. I adhered them on to the card base and added the die cut rectangle on to it with the foam tape. Next I arranged the die cut images to create the scene, and added some jewels. Lastly I finished off the card with a script Happy Birthday die cut. I stacked it with rainbow colors, but it’s hard to see that in the picture!

Non dimensional Shaker Card | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Friday Y’all! It’s been along week, and so I’m ready for the weekend with some extra help with the kids and time with some friends, and fingers crossed some crafty time! I have two cards that I have been working on for wayyy too long! But enough about that, let’s get to the card that I have finished!

I see a lot of chatter on social media about extra postage for mailing shaker cards, so decided to play around and try to create a “non-dimensional” shaker card using confetti and tulle.

I started by stamping the wreath image from the Winter Wreath Stamp Set with brown copic friendly ink (leave the stamp in the MISTI to restamp it after coloring). I colored the image using copic markers, restamped with watermark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder, and die cut with the coordinating die.

Next I die cut two stitched slimline rectangle and cut out two offset windows on one of them. Using tulle and double sided tape, I created “pockets” that I filled with Berry Bright Confetti Mix. I embossed the sentiment from Penguin Pals Stamp Set, before adhering the colored wreaths with more double sided tape. I finished off the card by adding a sprinkle of Holiday Jewels Mix.

Floral Window Slimline | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Friday y’all! It feels like I haven’t been on here in AGES, but it’s only been a week! With the longer days, I find my self crafting less and less, as I am spending more time outdoors! I’ve also been working on spending less time on social media (instagram to be exact!) and deleting it every Friday evening! I’ve been successful for 2 weekends so far and hoping to keep going till its a habit!

Since I finished this card, I figured I would share it before logging off for the weekend!

I’ve been eyeing window slimline dies, but since I’m trying to stick to a budget, I decided to make my own using the Pretty Pink Posh’s Window Frames Die. I started by die cutting a stitched rectangle (using a die similar to the Slimline: Peekaboo Windows Dies), then I did a little guesstimating and die cut the Window Frames Die three times. Once die cut I splatted the die cut card front with some gold paint.

Next I created the backing to the windows, starting with a 3.25 x 8.5 piece of white card stock. I inked it up using distress oxide inks in Seedless Preserves, Abandoned Coral and Dried Marigold. I splattered it with some water and more gold paint. Using the window layer as a guide I embossed a sentiment from the Pinata Party Stamp Set to show through the middle window. I layered the rectangle with the windows using foam tape to the inked panel.

To finished off the card, I colored (and fussy cut) the potted floral image from the Flower Bouquets Stamp Set three times. I adhered them to the card using foam tape and added some jewels.

Storybook Florals | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Monday! Hope y’all had a great weekend! I logged off and went off the grid, hiked, took in nature and had a blast! It was no relaxing and rejuvenating! But it’s Monday and that means back to real life! Sharing a Pretty Pink Posh card today on Instagram and popping in here to share the details!

Today’s card is using a much older (and forgotten product!) from my stash, the Storybook 1 Die, there is a full collection, and I own them all, just don’t use them, LOL! I hope things change as I am starting to make WAY more scene/critter cards!

To create this card, I started by coloring one of the floral images from Flower Bouquets Stamp Set, along with some of the smaller floral images from Bunny Friends Stamp Set using copic markers. After coloring I die cut/fussy cut the images. Next I created the background by inking up an A2 piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock in a blue to yellow ombre, I layered with the Leaves Stencil and blended with white pigment ink to create a shadow effect.

Next I cut it the inked panel using the Storybook 1 Die. Before mounting the die cut card front on to card base, I inked up the card base with some light green ink. I added some water splatters to both the inked pieces and mounted the die cut one on top with foam tape for some added dimension. I stamped the sentiment from the Flower Bouquets Stamp, added my colored images, and finished off with some jewels.

Framed Crocuses | Pretty Pink Posh

Hi! Quickly popping in to share a fun card using some older Pretty Pink Posh products for my second guest post for July! I still can’t believe it and am so excited!

To create this card, I started by stamping and coloring all the flowers and leaves from the Crocus Flowers stamp set using alcohol markers, and cut them out using the coordinating dies.

To assemble the card I started with a top folding A2 size white card base, and added the Lattice die cut. To frame the crocuses, I used the smaller of the Scallop Frame dies cut from some light purple card stock to match the flowers. I adhered the fame and the colored images using foam tape. I finished off the card with a sentiment from the Simple Sentiment stamp set embossed in white onto a strip of black card stock and a mix of jewels.

Winter scene card | Mama Elephant

Hi there! Happy Tuesday! For once I’m not too excited about the short week, as I keep thinking it’s Monday and I have wayyy to many things to get done! And of course I am procrastinating by editing pictures and writing this blog! But I couldn’t let the chance to guest design for Mama Elephant pass me by!

For today’s card I pulled out some older winter themed stamp sets, inspired by all the “Christmas in July” posts that I have been seeing lately!

I’ve recently been loving creating scene cards with critters and these animal friends on the sledge are the cutest! I stamped and colored the image from the Dashing thru the Snow using zig real brush markers and cut it out using the coordinating dies.

To create the scene, I started by dry embossing an A2 piece of white card stock using the Snowflakes Stencil and die cut a window from it using the Window Frames Die. Next I stamped and colored the mountains and evergreen images from the Scene Builder stamp set and cut them out using the coordinating dies. Lastly before assembling the card, I added some “snow’ using a snow pen and glitter on the trees.

I started to assemble the card on some light blue cardstock as the sky (you can also use an ink blended panel) and first added the mountains and trees, layered to peak through the die cut window. Next I added the embossed card front with the die cut window with some foam tape. Lastly I added the little critters and finished off with a sentiment strip using the Simple Sentiments stamp set.

As mentioned before I am adding this as an entry to the #MamaElephantCD2021Call!
