Hearts Make Me Smile | Pretty Pink Posh

Hello Crafty Friends and Happy Monday! It’s been a minute since I have been on here with a Pretty Pink Posh card! Between the holidays break, guests and germs, I’m finally getting back into a “routine” and it’s been really fun digging into my stash to find new stamps that haven’t been inked as I’m on a “no spend” challenge! 6 more days to make it a month!! I heard rumors of a Pretty Pink Posh Birthday release in February, but thankfully I have been saving my gift cards for that!

Okay, back to the card! To create this card, I started stamping the “outer” hearts from the Floral Hearts Stamp Set and the Large Floral Hearts Stamp Set with light brown ink on to heavy weight white card stock, and colored them in with copic markers. Once the coloring was done, I restamped the images with watermark ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder, and die cut them using the coordinating dies (Floral Hearts Coordinating Dies and Large Floral Hearts Coordinating Dies).

Next I created the background by embossing Petite Hearts Stencil (similar from Pretty Pink Posh : Scattered Hearts Stencil). To finish off the card, I built the sentiment using the Love You Script Die, Simple Sentiments Stamp Set and Simple Strips Dies, along with gold glitter card stock, black card stock and gold embossing powder. Finally added some jewels.

Merry Penguin Pals | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy last day of November! I know, right? I know that this year has been crazy busy, but November literally passed by in a blink! I managed to color these cute penguins a while back, and finally got a chance to create the card! I actually recreated my own card from earlier in the year! Check it out here.

To create this card, I started by stamping all the penguins from the Penguin Pals stamp set along with all the “accessories”. I colored them using copic markers. The color combos I used are shared at the end of the post. And then die cut them using the coordinating dies.

Next I die cut a stitched square using the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Squares from white card stock, and dry embossed it using the Snowflakes Stencil and I die cut all three of the frames from the Stitched Photo Frames die set.

With a little masking, I stamped the sentiment “merry wishes” on to the two larger frames. I adhered the frames and colored die cuts using a mix of foam tape and liquid adhesive to be able to layer the images and add some dimension. I finished off the card with Winter Wonders Clay Confetti and added it to a light blue card base.

Pumpkin BABY Slimline | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Tuesday! This weekend I got to meet my friend’s October baby, and since my friend loves all things pumpkin, I decided to make her a pumpkin baby card using a mix of new and old Pretty Pink Posh products. This card is part of my recent attempt to make “baby” cards with non baby stamps!

This was definitely one of my more “detailed” cards, so of course I made it over multiple days! I started by stamping two of the largest images from the Fall Corners Stamp Set onto Kraft paper using brown copic friendly ink. I colored in the images using copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating dies.

Next I created the background for the card, starting with die cutting a stitched slimline panel from white cardstock. I arranged all the smaller images from the Baby Stamp Set on to an acrylic block and created and white heat embossed background on to the stitched panel. Once it cooled, I ink blended it using distress oxides in Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmalade, and Squeezed Lemon. After inking I buffed the panel to make sure the white pops through!

For the sentiment I die cut the word “BABY” using the Baby Coordinating Dies, from matte gold paper, and the “welcome” from the Welcome Little One Script Die using golden glitter card stock. I added the “baby” to the center of the card and layered the “welcome” on it. I finished off my added the colored pumpkin images using foam tape and added some jewels from the Harvest Jewel Mix.

Copic Combo : E13, 15, 37; YR04, 07, Y17; YR16, 18, Y15; G21, 24, 28; G94, 99; YG03, 63

CAS Fall card | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Friday y’all! I am popping in quickly with a CAS card I put together last night, after I found some colored images from the Cozy Fall Critters Stamp Set. I created another card using the same stamp set, you can find the details here.

As the images were already colored, the card came together pretty quickly! I started by Adding the Leaves Background Stencil to an A2 size piece of white card stock, then I masked of most of it using post it tape. I ink blended using distress oxides in Dried Marigold, Scattered Straw, and Peeled Paint.

For the sentiment I fussy cut out the “hello” from the Hello Shaker Die after die cutting it from brown glitter card stock and stacked with Kraft paper. After adding the colored images with a combination of liquid adhesive and foam tape too add a tad bit of dimension. And as always I finished off with some jewels! I used the harvest jewel mix.

Seed Bead Shaker Card | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Sunday y’all! I usually don’t blog/share on weekends, but I couldn’t resist sharing this non traditional color Fall cards using some new-ish products (and bonus! all the products are used at on sale till 11/1!).

When I started creating this card, I really wanted to see some of my seed beads to create a shaker, but after die cutting the shaker card, I didn’t want to let the inked die cuts go to waste so made a second card!

For my first “main” card, I started by inked up an A2 piece using distress oxides in Speckled Egg, Victorian Velvet, and Spun Sugar. Next I splattered it with water, and gold paint to add some texture. Next I die cut a random collection of dies from the Falling Leaves Coordinating Dies to cover most of the card front. After die cutting the inked background I kept the die attached in the same pattern and cut a piece of fun foam to help create the shaker.

To create the shaker, I backed the die cut panel with some acetate and then added the foam layer, and filled it with seed beads to match the ink blending. I used Aquamarine, Blush, and Cotton Candy from the Posh Seed Bead Bundle. I added it to a A2 top folding card base and finished it off with the Thank You Script Die cut from matte gold paper.

I was about to trash the die cut leaves, along with the foam cut outs, and I was like, wait I can make a second card! I used black ink to stamp the coordinating images on to the die cuts from the Falling Leaves Stamp Set, and then attached them to the matching foam die cuts. I added the Thank You Script Die cut from matte gold paper to the center of another A2 top folding card base and arranged the leaves around it.

Holiday Foliage | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Friday y’all! The skies are finally clearing up and I have a HUGE todo list to get through before planning for tomorrow’s double date IN! As life slowly returns to normal, I hope that I remain appreciative of the little things and don’t take them for granted! Including my little space on the internet! I love being able to share my cards (and sometimes random adventures) with all of you!

On to today’s card! I created another card using the Poinsettia Corners Stamp Set from Pretty Pink Posh. You can see the first card I created here. The biggest change I made was making it a holiday card, and used a slightly different combination of copic markers.

Copic Combo : R32, 35, 37, 39; G21, 24, 28; YG 17, 67; G94, 99

To create this card, I started by stamping the larger of the bouquets twice with copic friendly ink on to white card stock. I colored them using copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating dies.

To assemble the card, I started by embossing the Christmas Background Stencil. I added the poinsettia corners on the two corners of the card base. Next I stacked the “merry” and “Christmas” from the Bitty Buzzwords: Holidays die cuts. I die cut them from black card stock 3 times and once from black glitter card stock. And as always I added some jewels to finish off the card, this time using Holiday Jewels Mix.

Poinsettia Thank You | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Tuesday y’all! I hope that you are all having am amazing start to the week! I got my Pretty Pink Posh Winter Release order last week, and of course I had to get inky ASAP! I picked up the Poinsettia Corners Stamp Set along with the coordinating dies. I’m super excited to add it to my holiday themed stamps from Pretty Pink Posh!

To create this card, I started by stamping the 2 larger poinsettia bouquets on to white card stock using copic friendly black ink. I colored them using Copic Markers, die cut and then added some glitter glue in the flower centers along with accents using a white gel pen.

For the sentiment I die cut the Thank You Script Die from matte golden paper 3 times and stacked it. I finished off the card by adding the floral die cuts and the word sentiment to a pattern paper trimmed down to an A2 size and finished off with some Holiday Jewels Mix.

Monster Birthday! | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy end of Stamptember! It’s a big month for stamping and I was so excited to be able to join in for the first time! Incase you missed the posts, you can check them out here and here. After I bought literally everything this month, I have put myself on spending freeze, indefinitely! I know that I am going to end up breaking it for the Pretty Pink Posh winter release, so here I am trying to justify my most recent purchases from them! I used the Monster Hugs stamp set earlier in the month here and y’all loved it so much that I decided to put it out again for a cute-not-spooky birthday-not-halloween card! I am tempted to attempt an Halloween card, so maybe I’ll add that to my “to create” list!

To create this card, I started by stamping all the monsters from the Monster Hugs stamp set along with all the “accessories” from the Birthday Friends stamp set. I colored them using copic markers. You can see how I colored them here. And then die cut them using the coordinating dies, Monster Hugs and Birthday Friends.

Copic Combo : BG 10, 11, 13, 15; RV 21, 23, 25; V 01, 04, 05, 06, Y13, 15; YG 21, 23, 25; YR 01, 02, 04, 07

Next I die cut a stitched square using the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Squares from white card stock, and dry embossed it using the Birthday Background Stencil. I die cut all three of the frames from the Stitched Photo Frames die set.

With a little masking, I stamped the sentiment from the Cupcake Critters stamp set on to the two larger frames. I adhered the frames and colored die cuts using a mix of foam tape and liquid adhesive to be able to layer the images and add some dimension. As usual I finished of the card with lots of jewels.

Seahawk Themed Fall Critters | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Monday! Yup the Seahawks played a HORRIBLE game and it pretty much rained half the weekend! Thankfully we enjoyed the sun while it was out, and then I made use of the indoor time to get productive and prep for the week ahead! And since I meal prepped/planned for the week, I got in some crafty time this morning to finish this slimline card using the critters I colored last week!

Incase you missed the critters on the feed, you can check it out here and also my little adventure to get the stamps, here.

Copic combinations are listed above for the critters and for the leaves and acorns I used the following combinations : RV17, V05; V04, 12; E13, 15, 27, 59; YG 63, 03, 01; Y38, 17, 15.

Once I was done with my copic coloring the images from the Fall Critters stamp set, I die cut them with the coordinating dies and set them aside. Next I created the background for the shaker, as you can’t make a Pretty Pink Posh card with out a shaker, right? I die cut a slimline panel, covered it with the Leaves Background stencil and inked it up with distress oxide inks in Wilted Violet, Worn Lipstick, Dried Marigold, Peeled Paint, Mowed Lawn, and Fossilized Amber. The stencil is a delicate one so ink up carefully!

I created the shaker window using the View From My Window slimline die from Crafty Meraki. You can also create a similar one using the Window Frames Die from Pretty Pink Posh like I did here. I added acetate and foam tape and an assortment of sequins to match my ink blending.

At this point I realized I hadn’t added a sentiment! So I embossed the one from the Fall Critters stamp set in gold onto black cardstock and fussy cut it. I added it on the bottom window and arranged the critters and fall foliage around the windows to finished off the card.

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
