Pretty Pink Posh

Pop up Scarecrow Card

Happy First Day of Fall, Y’all! Unpopular opinion, but I am ready fall! The smoke is here, so need the rains to come and clear it up! I’m looking forward to cooler days, football games and lot more crafty sessions! 

Sharing a kinda over the top card today! I tried to make my first interactive card! A lot went wrong, but I still wanted to share it, as art isn’t perfect and motivate those of your too intimidated to create interactive cards! 

To create this card I started by die cutting the card base from Lawn Fawn‘s Peekaboo Pop-Up twice from white card stock.

I made a valley fold on one of the die cuts and stamped the row of pumpkins along the top from Pretty Pink Posh‘s Fall Borders stamp set. After coloring the image with copic markers, I fussy cut the top half, you can also use the NEW coordinating die cuts to partially die cut, but they hadn’t been released when I started this card! 

Next I created a mask and inked up the bottom of the pumpkins using distress oxides inks in Scattered Straw and Fossilized Amber, and splattered it with some gold paint.

Next I inked up the second die cut, this time scoring with a mountain fold. After scoring I inked it up with distress oxides inks in Wilted Violet, Salvaged Patina, and Broken China. I also splattered it with some gold paint.

Next I stamped, colored and die cut a bunch of images from multiple Pretty Pink Posh stamp sets. Here are the sets and coordinating :
1. Fall Signs : Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies
2. Fall Corners : Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies
3. Cozy Fall Critters : Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies

I used A LOT of copic markers and remembered to take a picture for y’all!

With all the elements colored and shaded, I started to assemble the card, first by adding the pop up arm, and playing around with the placement if all the leaves. I ended up not using the pumpkins.

Finally finishing off the card by adhering everything together!

Flying Butterflies | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Tuesday! I’m all for productive days, but oh man, they do tire me out! it’s past 9 and I am just getting to posting this! Sharing a fun interactive card today up on the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog using the tiniest stamps from multiple stamp sets, and fishing line, yes fishing line!

To create this card I started by card base with an oval window using the Oval Frames Die Set and the new Springtime Paper Pad. I sandwiched the fishing line between the pattern paper and the card front.

Next I stamped the little butterflies from the Newton’s Blooms Stamp SetGnome Garden Stamp SetDaffodils Stamp Set and Bitty Bunnies Stamp Set twice, and colored them using copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating dies (Newton’s Blooms Die SetGnome Garden Die SetDaffodils Die SetBitty Bunnies Die Set). I used little pieces of double sided tape to adhere the butterflies to the fishing line.

Next I stamped and colored the kitty with a butterfly net from the Captivated Kittens Stamp Set and die cut it using the coordinating Captivated Kittens Die Set. I adhered it to the bottom right corner off the card.

Lastly I stamped a sentiment from the Captivated Kittens Stamp Set on a banner die cut from the A7 Frames & Banners Die Set

Pattern paper backgrounds | Honey Bee Stamps

Hi! I’m Farhana and I hoard pattern paper and crafting supplies! Like seriously! I have no idea when and where I got the paper that I used on this card, and the die has been in my ‘to use’ pile since January!

When shopping I’m super ambitious and think that I will make ALL the interactive cards, but clearly there’s not even a handful on the blog! For today’s card, I kept most of it simple, as it took me a while to get to put together the interactive part. I used the Fortune Cookie Slider die from Honey Bee Stamps.

I die cut all the pieces from white card stock, inked blended them and added a sentiment Fortunate To Have You stamp set.

Happy Crafting!

Acetate Window Cards (with Joy Clair Designs)

Welcome back to the blog! I thought that I would pop in today with a quick and easy card. I say easy even after I made like a bunch of mistakes while making it!

Coloring Medium : Arteza Colored Pencils (Lemon A004, Sunflower A016, Lime A101, Spring Green A042, Sienna Brown A048) and Shabby Shutter Distress Oxide

Firstly I forgot to print a statement till the card was done, so y’all get a sneak peak the the new September release! Then I tried to stamp on the acetate, but my stazon ink pad was dry! And lastly, I feel like the images could have been a little larger! Why I am still sharing the cards? Well I want to show y’all that no one is perfect! And the end results weren’t the worst!

Enough chit chatting, let’s get to the cards! I started by resizing and printing the flower and leaves from the Prized Life Digital Set. Then I colored and fussy cut the images. Then to create the window card base, I started by ink blending the front using a stencil. I cut out about 1.5 inches in the middle of the card front, adhering the two pieces using some acetate. I covered the back of the acetate with white card stock to hide the adhesive. At this point you can use stazon ink to stamp the sentiment onto the acetate, but since my was dried out, I stamped it above and below the window. Lastly I adhered the colored images from the Prized Life Digital Set using some foam tape on to the acetate.

Thanks for stopping by! If you create a card using the Prized Life Digital Set please tag me (@everydayengineered) and @joyclairstamps! Don’t forget to stop by again on the 9th for the new release!

Wreath Cards (with Pretty Pink Posh)

Oh my look who is blogging! After weeks of clearing my craft room, I realized how much stuff I have accumulated yet never used, I decided that its time to go from hoarder to crafter! And then I made 22 cards in 9 days, and am super pumped and excited to remain creative and re-start this blog again. But blogging with a twist! No new and fresh stuff, its going to be a throwback themed blog where I am going to try and go through all the stamps that a still BRAND NEW in my drawers! Story time is over and lets get to today’s cards!

IMG_0596 Yup, I made three cards using one stamp set and a background die. I did use sentiments from different stamp and die sets. But you can always use the sentiments from the stamp set. I just needed these sentiments!

  1. Gatefold card : For this card I started with a 5.5 x 8.5 inch piece of card stock, scored at 2.25 inches from each end to create the gate fold. Then I cut a lattice diecut in half, attaching it to either flap of the card base. After coloring and diecutting the wreath image, I attached it to half of the card front, so that it can still open up. Then I threaded the ribbon through the wreath, glued it to the back and tied a bow in the front. To finish off, I stamped a sentiment and added some jewels to finish off.
  2. Window card : For this card, I started with a lattice die cut and a top folding A2 size card base. I used a circle die matching to die cut the window thought the front of the card, stamped the sentiment making sure that you can see it once the wreath is adhered to the front (after coloring and diecutting). To add a little more interest, I ink blended the card base before sticking the lattice diecut. And of course finished off with some jewels! IMG_0606
  3. Embossed background card : Instead of diecutting the lattice background, this time I embossed it on to the front of a A2 card base. Then I ink blended in a circle before sticking colored and diecut wreath image. For the sentiment I used a word diecut, cut from some gold cardstock, that I layered 4 times with regular cardstock to add some dimension. And y’all know that I can’t finish a card without some jewels!

I stamped all the wreath images with versafine ink on startemore bistol cardstock, embossed with gold embossing powder. Then I colored them with zig real brush markers and a nuvo aqua shimmer pen in glitter gloss.
