Get Cracking on Christmas | Pretty Pink Posh


I finally finished my card for #getcrackingonChristmas for Jenn Shurkus‘ monthly challenge, using Claire’s Card On Christmas Card Challenge monthly theme of “background stamp” as my starting point! I had the image colored in already so managed to put it together during nap time, and now racing against the clock to share this card before little R wakes up!

To create this card, I started by embossing the Falling Snow Background from Honey Bee Stamps using white embossing powder. Next I inked it up using distress oxide inks (in chipped sapphire, broken china and salty ocean), buffed it to let the white pop through again, added some gold paint splatters, and set it aside to dry.

Next I colored the wreath from Pretty Pink Posh’s Winter Wreath Stamp Set using copic makers, then embossed it using gold embossing powder and die cut it using the coordinating die. I die cut a banner from some blue card stock, and embossed a sentiment from the same stamp set and added it behind the wreath, and added the wreath to the inked background with foam tape. Lastly I added some jewels from the Holiday Jewels Mix.

If you made it this far, thank you! If you are inspired by any of my work please tag me on Instagram as I would love to see your recreation! 

Happy Crafting!

Mountains and Mugs | Mama Elephant

Happy Sunday! Woah, what? I blog all week and then I have a card on Sunday too, whhaaatttt! Well I made this card that perfectly match’s the Caffeinated Christmas Card ChallengeSnowflakes so I had to she before the challenge it over!

I created this card using some of my favorite Mama Elephant stamps!

To create this card, I started by stamping some coordinating images from the Hot Cocoa Stamp Set and the Sweet Treats Stamp Set with copic friendly ink and colored them in using copic markers. Once colored I die cut them using the coordinating dies (Sweet Treats and Hot Cocoa).

Next I created the front panel for the card, starting with die cutting a windows using the Window Frames Dies, and embossed it using the Snowfall Stencil. Then I stamped and colored the mountains from the Scene Builder using copic markers and a snow pen. Make sure to die cut the mountains with the coordinating dies. Lastly, I created the snowflake background using the Falling Snow Background, embossed with white onto Bristol Smooth card stock and inked up with some tumbled glass distress oxide ink.

I added all the layers together, added the colored images using some foam tape, and finished off with a embossed sentiment and some confetti hearts.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something and you get some crafty time this weekend! 
Happy Crafting!

Get Cracking on Christmas | Newton’s Nook Designs

Woah, twice in one day! Well I made a card for #getcrackingonChristmas for Jenn Shurkus‘ monthly challenge and I couldn’t wait till next month, so here we are during nap time, racing against the clock to share this card!

I didn’t know where to start when I sat down to create this card, and then went through my “new” thought process to “get in the mood!”, and I’ll share with y’all too incase you need to find your mojo:
1. When to post? This was easy as get cracking on Christmas is every third Thursday of the month, this gave me a “deadline” of sorts.
2. Theme? Basically what stamp set I should use, I wanted to use on that I hadn’t inked up yet as part of my buy less, use more challenge! But I found like a dozen unused holiday stamps, oops. Then I stumbled upon Claire’s Card On Christmas Card Challenge and used her monthly theme of “Santa” as my starting point, and inked up this Dear Santa stamp from Newton’s Nook Designs.
3. Layout? Since my stamp was from Newton’s Nook Designs, I figured I would just check out there challenge blog, Inky Paws Challenge and found it was a sketch one! So, that’s what I used!
4. Color Scheme? well the stamp matched this pattern paper and I just took that as a sign!

Okay, enough about getting my mojo back! If you are here to create this card, then let’s get started. I stamped the image of Santa holding the presents from the Dear Santa, and colored it in using copic markers to match a scrap piece of pattern paper from the Meowy Christmas Paper Pad, and die cut it using the coordinating dies.

Next I die cut a banner from the Frames & Flags Die Set from green card stock and embossed a sentiment in white from the Snow Much Cheer stamp set. I also embossed an A2 size card front of the same green card stock using the Holiday Foliage Stencil. Lastly, I die cut the patten paper using a stitched rectangle from the Frames & Flags Die Set. Once I layered all the pieces together, I added some jewels to finish off my card.

Copic Combos : B00, 02; R27, 29; Y13; C00, 1, 3, 5, 7; E11, 13

It’s the holidays! | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Hump Day! Not sure if it’s the fact that my weekend starts earlier this week or the fact that I’m still playing catch up from the weekend, but this week is flying by! Can you believe it’s 2022 in like 23 days 🤯 Anyways let’s get back to card making, are y’all done with holiday cards?? If not here’s one that can be mass produced! 

Ink blending is one of my favorite ways to add color quickly for cards, you can see here, here, and many more ideas here.

To create this card, I started by inking up an A2 piece of Bristol Smooth card stock with distress oxide inks in chipped sapphire, abandoned coral, dried marigold, crushed olive and salvage patina. Next I die cut both the Pierced Fancy Flakes Cover Plate and the Fancy Flakes Cover Plate, layered from the same sheet of A2 white card stock.

To finish off the card I die the words “merry Christmas” from the Bitty Buzzwords: Holidays Dies from golden card stock, and used a few left over colored die cuts from the Riding By…Holiday Style stamp set, and of course I added some jewels!

I hope that this inspires you to create something crafty at the end of your day! If you do, and share on Instagram, be sure to tag me (@everydayengineered) and Honey Bee Stamps (@honeybeestamps)! We love to see what you create!

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.

Poisettia CAS card | Newton’s Nook

Happy Tuesday y’all! I hope that you’re week is off to a great start, if not, at least it ends tomorrow! I’m super excited about the weekend, first time not cooking/hosting, so looking forward to reading, crafting and catching up of watching TV/movies! I may pack a puzzle or two also!

If you are crafting this weekend, here’s some holiday card inspiration for you using my favorite holiday stamp, poinsettias!

To create this card, I started by stamping and coloring one of the images from the Poinsettia Blooms Stamp Set with copic markers. I don’t have the Poinsettia Blooms Die Set, so I fussy cut the images.

Next I diecut a circle using the Circle Frames Die Set and embossed the ‘season greetings’ sentiment onto it using gold embossing powder. I adhered the circle to an A2 size card front dry embossed using the Holiday Foliage Stencil.

I finished off the card by adhering the colored images using foam tape to frame the sentiment and added some jewels.

I hope these cards inspire you to create something for the holidays! Please make sure to stop by the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog for more inspiration and don’t forget to tag #NewtonsNook or #NewtonsNookDesign on Instagram to share what you created!

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.

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 and join the Facebook group so that we can see what you have created!

DIY Wreath Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Who else loves a great wreath stamp! I am obsessed with them, and pretty much have one for every season! But then Kerry from Ink Hill Revival got me thinking about stretching my supplies and I was like… umm why not use the tiny flowers from stamp sets, and make my own wreath! So after a little coloring and A LOT of die cutting, here’s what I ended up creating!

To create this card, I started by stamping the poinsettias and holly leaves from Honey Bee Stamps’ Riding By…Holiday Style stamp set with copic friendly ink and coloring them using copic markers. Next I stamped the detailed leaves with two shades of green ink and die cut ALL the images!

Copic Combos : R35, 37, 39; R59. 89; G21, 24, 28, 29; G94, 99; Y15

To assemble the card, I started with a grey card base and added a maroon sheet from the Vintage Holiday paper pad, which I trimmed down to be a little smaller than than an A2 size, and die cut it using the Pierced Fancy Flakes Cover Plate. I cut a circle using the Sweet Stacks : Circle die from a sheet of pattern paper from the same pad and embossed a sentiment from the Bitty Buzzwords : Holidays stamp set.

I finished off the card by adhering the die cut florals and leaves using liquid adhesive along with foam tape to add some dimension to create the “wreath” around the sentiment. And of course I added some jewels to the finished card.

This card is part of Honey Bee Stamps’ Instagram hop, so be sure to head over and leave a comment on my post for a chance to win!

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.
