Welcome to Pretty Pink Posh March 2019 Product Release Blog Hop! Within this release, be prepared to be wowed by jam packed exciting products and loaded inspirations from all blog hops. I loved every single items from this release. It was so hard for me to pick a few to work with for this blog hop. I tried my best to present you with four cards I made before I overwhelmed you. Wink wink~
Spring is approaching. Why do I know? Oh yes. I am starting to have itching eyes and so as my daughter is. Take that downside away, I do love all beautiful things happening such as butterflies. I started my first card with a shaker card.
To begin with my card, I ink blended the background using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet over a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper. Then I die cut my front frame using Spring Frame Die out of white cardstock paper. I added a piece of acetate underneath the front frame and Poured lots of Friendship confetti Mix, then attached the frame over the background using Foam strips.
I stamped butterfly images out of Beautiful Butterflies Stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink over Neenah Solar white 80lbs cardstock paper and cut them out with Coordinating Dies. Then I colored them using Copic markers ( BG 10, BG23, V01, V15, E33, E37)
I adhered butterflies onto the front panel using Multi Medium Matte and Foam squares. Since I don’t want to over distract my whole layout. I decided to go for a smaller sentiment. I stamped “Spring Greetings” sentiment from Spring Wreath Stamp set over a piece of black cardstock paper with versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then I free hand cut it into a rectangle shape and adhered onto the lower corner. I added a few more Friendship confetti Mix here and there to finish this card.
For my second card, I would like to go with some flowers. I stamped images from Magnolia Flowers Stamp set and cut with Coordinating Dies. Then I copic colored them with RV10, rv55, YG03 and detailed with couple Prismacolor pencils.
I decided to make a card with less dimension this time. I cut a desired circle out of a piece of masking tape and masked my white panel using the negative part out of the masking paper. I then ink blended with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink in Cracked Pistachio and Lucky Clover and splattered a little bit white paint over it to create some textures.
I adhered the colored images to the background with Multi Medium Matte and Foam Squares.
At last, I stamped the sentiment “All My Love” from Love Sentiment Stamp set using Memento Tuxedo black ink. To keep my card simple and clean, I skipped using any embellishments. If you followed me for a while, you knew how hard I tried not to using any sequins or sparkles.
I was so happy to see another wreath stamp coming out since I didn’t have enough of Autumn wreath stamp set. What’s good about it is Paulina, the owner of Pretty Pink Posh, really tried building this stamp set that could match some of our previous stamp images and patterns to satisfy a person like me who enjoys mixing and matching with everything I owned.
To begin with, I ink blended my background using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry over a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper. Then I splattered some ink over the background to create some interests.
I stamped the wreath and other element images from Spring Wreath Stamp set with Memento Tuxedo black in over Neenah Solar white 80lbs cardstock paper and die cutting with Coordinating Dies. Then I colored them with copic makers (Y02,G00, BV00, R20, V01) to create more pastel look.
I arranged all selected images onto my prepped background using Foam Squares and Multi Medium Matte.
I finished this card by stamping the sentiment “you’re a true friend” from Peacock Friends Stamp set onto the lower portion of the panel.
Now we are coming up to my last card. First of all, I ink blended my background with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink in Tumbled Glass, Shaded Lilac and Blueprint Sketch over a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper. Then I splattered some water over the background and picked up some color by using paper towel.
I die cut my butterflies using Bold Butterflies Die out of white cardstock. I lightly inked edge of the wings to create the dimensions. I also added Pansy Purple Jewels to embellish my butterflies.
I attached decorated butterflies over the background using Multi Medium Matte and bend the wings so it looks like they are flapping their wings in the air. Then I scattered some Wisteria Blossoms Confetti to fill the space.
In the end, I stamped the sentiment “you are special” from Peacock Friends Stamp set with versamark ink over a piece of black cardstock paper and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then I free hand cut it into a rectangle shape and adhered onto the lower left corner.
