Pretty Pink Posh June 2019 Product Release Blog Hop

Good morning,
Welcome to Day 1 of Pretty Pink Posh June 2019 Product release Blog Hop! We are jam packed with whole bunch of Summer elements in this release. You could have a whole tropical scene on your card or project simply putting them together. I easily made 3 cards for the inspirations
<Card 1>

For my first card, I just wanted all. So I made a shaker card. I ink blended an A2 sized watercolor paper with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Mustard Seed and Worn lipstick. Then I cut the front panel using Tropical Frame Die out a piece of white card stock paper and lightly ink blended with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Cracked Pistachio. I stamped the sentiment “aloha” onto the background piece and poured a whole bunch of Citrus Jewel Mix, then I enclose this shaker window by adding a piece of acetate underneath the front panel and attached it onto the background piece with Foam tapes.

Then I stamped images from Hibiscus Flowers Stamp setTropical Birds Stamp set and Tropical Toucans Stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Neenah Solar White 80lbs card stock paper and die cut them with the Coordinating Dies (Hibiscus Flower / Tropical Birds / Tropical Toucans). I then colored them with my trusty Copic markers. I attached them onto the top of my card using Multi Medium Matte and Foam tape to finish this card.

 

<Card 2>

Who said elephant cannot surf? Everyone could do everything in our card world!For my second card, I used old and new products. I first stamped selected images from Summer Surf Boards Stamp set, Tropical Birds Stamp set and Elephant Friends Stamp set. After I colored them with Coipc markers, I die cut them with the Coordinating Dies (Summer Surf Boards / Tropical Birds / Elephant Friends).

Pretty Pink Posh started to have stencil products. I masked my A2 sized watercolor paper using Wave Stencil and ink blended with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in  Squeezed Lemonade, Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feather. Then I die cut the center of this inked background with Scallop Circles Die. I flipped the center negative cut out part over and ink blended it with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feather to create the scene background.

I added Foam stripes underneath the scalloped circle part to create better dimension. Then I attached my colored images within the circle background. At last, I stamped the sentiment “hi” from Everyday Greetings Stamp set.

<Card 3>

For my last card, I ink blended an A2 sized watercolor paper with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Squeezed Lemonade, Worn Lipstick and Wilted Violet. Then I cut couple pieces vellum using Scallop Borders Die. I attached them to both side of my prepped background using Multi Medium Matte, Since the glue dries with matte finish, it is not very noticeable.

I stamped all images from Tropical Toucans Stamp set and cut out with the Coordinating Dies. Then I colored them with copic markers. I attached colored images onto the background using glue and Foam tapes.I stamped the sentiment “You Can Do It!” that comes in the same stamp set and embellished my card with Pansy Purple and Marigold Jewels.

There are 4 $25 gift certificates up for grabs (two winners each day). Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop. Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PST on 5/8/2019. Winners will be announced on the PPP blog.

I masked the lower portion of the card with washi tape, then heavily blended with Gathered Twigs to create the ground. I also splattered some water droplets and dried with a piece of paper towel to bring some interests.

I colored all images from Konnichiwa Stamp set with copic markers and die cut with the Matching dies. I managed to add most of images onto my card because it’s really hard to leave any of them behind. I stamped the sentiment and done with my card.

Pinkfresh Studio May Essentials Release Blog Hop

Welcome to Pinkfresh Studio May Essentials Release Blog Hop! You will get chance to play with some of basic and unique cutting dies, and most exciting part for me is that Pinkfresh Studio added some Crystals and Jewels into the craft collections. Today I would like to show you couple cards featuring Pretty Frame 2 Die with those gorgeous embellishments!

<Card 1>

 

To make this card, I ink blended my background with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Mustard Seed and Worn Lipstick onto a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper.  Once the surface is completely dried, I stamped the large sentiment “You”ve got this” from You’ve Got this! stamp set to the center of the background using Versafine Onyx black ink.

 

I used Pretty Frame 2 die to cut whole bunch shapes of frames out of Neenah Solar white 110 lbs cardstock paper and chose some a few to attach to the background using Multi Medium Matte and Foam tapes. I embellished my card with a few yellow jewels from Jewel Mix. So my first card is done.

 

<Card 2>

When I saw all color options from Crystal Mix, I decided to make this card colorful. I ink blended with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron and Salty Ocean onto a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper.

I used some of frames cut out from Pretty Frame 2 Die to create my shaker window frame. I poured some coordinating colors from Crystal Mix and sealed the window with Acetate paper and Foam tapes (I stacked Foam tapes twice to build higher clearance so all crystals could be in the window moving freely). At last, I added “smiles” Puffy stickers from Everyday Musings Puffy Accents to finish my card.

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!
