Peacock Slimline Cards | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Thursday! I’m super excited and kinda nervous as I type this! I can finally share that I’m guest designing with Pretty Pink Posh for the month of July! This is a design spot that I have been dreaming and working towards for over 5 years! Basically as long as I have know the brand, it’s owner Paulina and been using, collecting and hoarding their products! So without anymore delay, here’s my first pair of cards for July using some older stamps that are a favorite!

Two things that I have been loving when making cards recently are slimline cards, yay extra space and ink blending. I am finally using the inks that I gave been hoarding for YEARS!

To make this cards, I started by embossing all the images from the Peacock Friends Stamp Set with gold embossing powder on to Bristol smooth card stock. I colored the images using Zig real brush markers and a wink of stella glitter pen and cut them out using the coordinating dies.

Next I ink blend 3.5 x 8 inch die cuts with blue, green and yellow ink to create an ombre background to match the peacocks and its features.

For the first card, I used a white frame to add some dimension before adding the colored die cuts with some foam tape. I embossed sentiments from the Everyday Greetings stamp set in gold to match the die cuts. And of course I added some jewels!

For the second card, I used some stitched square die cuts from vellum back the colored images as they were blending into the background. I heat embossed a sentiment from the Everyday Greetings stamp set, and finished of with some jewels!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that you were inspired to create something! Make sure to tag me @everydayengineered and @prettypinkposh on Instagram so that we can see what you have created!

Happy Crafting!

Happy Wednesday! It’s reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs and I’m so excited to share a ton of inspiration with you this week! Today we are showcasing the Puppy Friends stamp set and coordinating die. Here’s how I was inspired!

As you can see I have been sticking to CAS cards for this release! For this card, I started by stamping, coloring and die cutting one of the puppies from the Puppy Friends stamp set and cutting it with the coordinating die.

To create the background, I started by dry embossing the new Petite Cloud Stencil on the card based. Then I heat embossed the Floral Roundabout stamp offset on to a stitched rectangle die cut from the Frames and Flags die set. Then I inked it up a little to add some depth and added a sentiment in the corner. And as always added some jewels to finish up the card.

Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Day 2 – Captivated Kittens + coordinating Dies

Happy Tuesday! It’s reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs and I’m so excited to share a ton of inspiration with you this week! Today we are showcasing the Captivated Kittens stamp set and coordinating die. Here’s how I was inspired!

To create this card I started by stamping, coloring (with copics and added accents with a white gel pen) die cutting one of the images from the Captivated Kitten stamp set. To create the background, I used the solid stencil from the Butterflies Stencil Set and inked it up with yellow, orange and pink ink.

When assembling the card I felt I made the background too bold, so I die cut a vellum circle using the Circle Frames Die Set and embossed a sentiment from the Captivated Kittens stamp set onto it. Lastly as always I added a few jewels to finish off the card.
