You’re A Star – Pretty Pink Posh

Hello Friends!

I hope you all had good dose of Pretty Pink Posh April Release reveal yesterday. Raise hands if you already jumped on some of these products. Before our Release blog hop hits in a few days, I want to show you a shaker card I quickly made over the weekend.

First of all, I stamped my images from Elephant Friends stamp set and Mother’s day stamp set onto a piece of Neenah Solar white 80lbs card stock paper using memento tuexdo black ink and die cut them with coordinating dies. (Elephant Friends / Mother’s day) Then I colored them with copic markers and set aside for later.

I created background simply using Tim Holtz distress oxide in Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio with ink blending technique. I splattered water over the ink background and removed droplets with a piece of paper towel. Then I cut windows using Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Pieces die. I stamped the sentiment “You’re a Star” onto one of those negative cut out.

I added a piece of acetate paper underneath the window opening and used foam tape to pop the dimension so I could create the shaker windows. To fill in the shaker windows,  I added Pretty Pink Posh 1/4″ Iridescent Star Confetti and Iridescent Mini Star confetti.I assembled all colored images onto the background using Multi Medium Matte and Foam tape.  Just like that, I finished my card.

 Be sure to come back to participate 2 days long Pretty Pink Posh April Release Blog Hop. I will be seeing you on the second day of blog hop which is May 2nd. Ciao!

Pinkfresh Studio April Stamps and Dies Release Blog Hop

Welcome to Pinkfresh Studio April 2019 Stamps and Dies Release Blog Hop! This large release will wow you like no tomorrow. I am so proud to say that we have a few team members designed the products for this release. I am not that creative but I am very happy for them! Today I am here introducing an elegant fun die named Lacy Floral Border to you.

<Card 1>

For my first card, I decided to go for elegant and classic. When you have a beautiful die like this, you really don’t need to do too much to get a good result.

I ink blended my ground using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Shaded Lilac and Faded Jeans onto a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper.  Then I mixed these two colors with water and splattered over the background to create the cool effect.

I stamped the sentiment “Beautiful”from You’ve Got this Stamp set to the center of the card using VersaMark embossing ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  I die cut my beautiful borders using Lacy Floral Border Die out of Neenah Solar white 100 lbs card stock paper and attached them onto the background with foam tapes to create dimensions.

A last, I added some Jewels ( Not yet released products ) to embellish my card.

<Card 2>

Since it is Spring finally, I went for bright pink and green to create my second card.

The background prep is similar to my last card. I ink blended my ground using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry.

I wanted to create”Wishing you a Beautiful day” collage. so I stamped “Wishing” and ” Beautiful” from You’ve Got this Stamp set to the center of the card using Versafine Oynx Black ink. I also white embossed “you a” and “day” on black card stock paper and cut into rectangle strips to fit into the blank space I saved.

I cut two borders using Lacy Floral Border Die out of Neenah Solar white 100 lbs card stock paper and then ink blended with Tim Holtz Distress oxide in Twisted Citron and  Cracked Pistachio lightly. I directly glued them to the top and bottom of my card and embellished with some jewels ( Coming up soon!)

Now Hop with us to be inspired by many of us!

Happy Easter 2019 – Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Easter to All!

I cannot wait to see the happy face from my daughter when she see the Easter Basket waiting for her in the morning. We usually do Easter eggs hunt at home, but I have this idea that we could go to a hiking place I just discovered to do a higher challenge of egg hunting. We will see if it goes well.

For today’s card, I wanted to keep the colors in traditional Easter colors which are Pink, Purple, Yellow and Blue. To build the front panel, I overlapped Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Diamonds Dies and die cut them from a piece of A2 watercolor paper. Then I lightly ink blended another piece of watercolor paper using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Tumbled Glass and Picked Raspberry. I mixed Picked Raspberry ink with water and splattered over my front panel by tapped a paint brush. After I attached the inked background with foam tape, I set it aside to dry.

I pulled out my All Time Favorite Bunny Friends stamp set to stamp all needed images on Neenah Solar White 80lbs cardstock paper with Memento Rich Cocoa ink pad. Then I colored them with Copic markers and die cut with Coordinating Dies. I arranged them in and around the diamond frame that I created. I stamped the sentiment “happy easter” from Pretty Pink Posh Easter Eggs Stamp Set using purple dye ink. I did not want the sentiment to block too much of my background, so I hand cut the sentiment and attached it onto the lower part of diamond frame. At last, I added a few Sparkling Clear Sequins in the frame to finish my card.

I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed Easter day! I am currently working on Pretty Pink Posh new release products. I am sure you will be wowed!

 

Love you always-Pretty Pink Posh 3 days Sale

Happy Sunday!

I went hiking with my friends yesterday and it was amazing to see everything is green and springing. That was the inspiration for my card today.

To begin with,  I ink blended a piece of A2 sized paper with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Pine needles and Cracked pistachio. Then I splattered water and white watercolor paint over the background.  I cut my shaker window using Pretty Pink Posh Storybook 2 Die. I added a piece of acetate paper underneath, poured Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Sparkling clear sequins/Mini Sparkling Clear Flowers,  and closed it with foam tape.

I pull out another piece of white card stock paper and cut a frame using Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Frames Die and attached it onto the top of my prepped background with Foam strips.

I stamped images from Beautiful Butterflies Stamp set onto watercolor paper using Versamark and heat embossed them using Glitter black embossing powder. I colored them with Tombow brush markers and cut with Coordinating Dies.  For my sentiment, I white embossed “Love you always” from Love Sentiment Stamp set onto a piece of black card stock paper and cut it with my paper cutter. I arranged them around my shaker window using Foam tapes and added Sparkling Clear sequins to finish my card.

I hope you all love my card and head out to Pretty Pink Posh Online Shop to receive great discount for all butterfly stamps and dies!

Happy Birthday-Guest designing for Penguin Palace

Good morning everyone,

I am guest designing for Penguin Palace, a newer stamp company with tons of cute stamps and dies. I have no resistance to everything  cute and fun. Hope you all like this card and don’t hesitate to check out their online shop.

To start with my card, I ink blended a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Worn Lipstick and Candied apple. To create better result of my color gradient, I also added Distress ink in Candied apple to the top of card. I splattered water and white paint over my inked background to create some textures.

I die cut a white frame using one of dies from Fancy Hearts Scalloped Borders and Dynamite Explosion Border set or 3 times and stacked them together with craft glue. Once that’s done, I  added this frame to the center of my background and set aside. I colored images from My Best Pal stamp set and die cut with coordinating dies. Then I colored them with copic markers. I tried to keep my main selected colors in Red, brown, blue and purple.

I adhered my colored images onto the background using Multi medium matte and foam squares and heat embossed the sentiment ” Happy Birthday ” with white embossing powder. I finally embellished my card with different sizes of white and red sequins.

I hope you like the products that I used for making this card and have a good inspiration day!

Welcome to Pinkfresh Studio April Essentials Release Blog Hop! After having lots of stamps and floral dies from January Release, don’t you wish that you could have some basic dies to build the foundation of your cards? Now you have it! Whole bunch of Essential dies are here waiting for you!

Today I am featuring the most basic and also the most important dies – Stitched Rectangles. They are simple and basic but somewhat unique to similar products on the market. It comes with 4 nested rectangle dies. Two of them are stitched and two are just simple rectangles. It gives us lots of potential to mix and match so we could achieve variety of shapes. The card I am showing you today is one of examples.

To prep my background, I ink blended an A2 sized watercolor paper (Canson XL) using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans. Then I splattered some water and white paints to create some textures. I left it aside to dry. I overlapped two of stitched rectangle dies from Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut out my frame from a piece of 100lbs white card stock paper.Then I attached it over my prepped background using Foam strips.

I stamped selected images from Embroidered Blossoms stamp set and die cut them using Matching Dies. Then I adhered all pieces to the lower right sided of my framed card using Multi Medium Matte and Foam squares.

Waffle Flower 2019 April Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 

Welcome to Waffle Flower April Release and 5th Birthday Blog Hop! We got new stamps, you’ve already seen at creativation stamps and Back to Basics Dies this month.  I’ve made four cards to take you to a little tour of this month’s products.

<Card 1>

How many of your kids are doing sports? This stamp illustrated by Kamo is so adorable. It is very easy to make a birthday card or a deck of Gym party invitations out of it.

To start with, I stamped images from Tumble On stamp set and cut with Matching dies. Then I colored them with copic markers. You really don’t need to use lots of colors to blend since the images are cute enough to work with. I created the abstract patterns using washi tapes to mask the A2 sized watercolor paper and ink blended with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Squeezed Lemonade and Worn Lipstick.

I arranged all colored images along the pattern I created and stamped the sentiments to finish my first card.

 

<Card 2>

Mother’s day is approaching. Giving a card with unique and interesting pattern would be a great idea.

First, I mixed Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Cracked Pistachio with water, then I applied it onto a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper using medium sized paint brush to create my background. To make it textured, I splattered some of water paint over it and let it set aside to dry.

At the meantime,  I stamped selected images from Grateful stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink over Neenah Solar white 80lbs card stock paper and colored with Copic markers. I die cut them with Matching dies and adhered onto the background with Foam squares. At last, I stamped sentiment “Grateful” to the lower left corner of my card and added enamel dots from Up & Running Enamel Dots  to finish.

 

<Card 3>

April marks the beginning of baseball or softball season and we are ready to hit one out of the park with this fun stamp set.

I decided to make this card simple enough to duplicate. Since my daughter is a softball player, I made a softball coach Thank you card. To make my background, I ink blended the background with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Cracked Pistachio. Then I cut out 2 pieces of wider strips to adhere onto top and bottom of my background so I would have a stage for soft girls to stay on. To create some dimensions, I did add some foam strips  underneath after I ink blended with Distress oxide ink in Wilted Violet.

I stamped out my images from Batter Stamp set and cut out with Matching Dies. Then I colored them with copic markers and added to my background. I cut out a speech bubble from Speech Bubbles Die and stamped the sentiment “Thanks coach” in it before I adhered it. I found these purple color enamel dots from Up & Running Enamel Dots which matches so well with the girls’ uniform color so I popped some of them around the frame to finish my card.

 

<Card 4>

For my last card, I used these  the cutest hamsters celebrating their co-workers in Office Birthday.

I got back to my all time favorite ink blending background technique this time. I ink blended my background using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Mustard Seed and Worn Lipstick heavily. I then sprayed water over the background and dried it with a piece of paper towel.

I stamped my images from Office Birthday Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo Black in and cut with Matching dies. Then I colored them with Copic markers and arranged onto the background using Multi Medium Matte and Foam squares. I stamped sentiment ” from all of us!” and embellished my card using purple color enamel dots from Up & Running Enamel Dots . Now you know this enamel dots set is so come in handy for all color matching requirements!
