PPP November Product Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Welcome everyone to Day 1 of Pretty Pink Posh November 2018 release Blog Hop! It’s about Holiday Season. So let us bring you some holiday spirits with our products! I am showing you three cards that I made for this Blog Hop today.

<Card 1>

For my first card, I colored images with Kerutake Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers from Pretty Pink Posh Poinsettias and Elegant Holly Stamp sets onto Bristol Smooth paper and die cut them with coordinating dies (For Poinsettias / For Elegant Holly)  I highly recommend you to use coordinating dies so you could boost up your productions for upcoming holiday card making.

I grabbed a piece of Tim Holtz Distress watercolor paper and randomly added a thin layer of watercolor paint in light blue. Once it’s dried, I splattered the same paint along with some white paint over the background. I assembled my colored images onto the background using Multi Medium Matte and Foam tape. For floral arrangement, I searched google images to get inspirations. To create snow flakes laying on the Poinsettias and the leaves, I also flicked some white paint over them.

At last, I stamped the sentiment “Searson’s Greetings” to the lower corner of card using Vesamark embossing ink, then embossed them with Gold embossing powder and heated to set. I embellished the background using Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Sparkling Clear Sequins and 6mm Sparkling Clear Sequins to finish.

 

<Card 2>

My second card is a shaker card. Of course! We are with Pretty Pink Posh, the shaker elements heaven! I colored images with Kerutake Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers from Pretty Pink Posh Decorative Ornament Stamp set and die cut them using the Coordinating dies. I also die cut the pine branch from a piece of white card stock paper using Pretty Pink Posh Pine Sprigs Dies and set them aside for later use.

To create the background, I ink blended with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Peacock Feather and Lucky Clover onto an A2 sized watercolor paper. I splattered water and quickly removed all liquid with paper towel to create distress look. Then I splattered the mixture of Peacock Feather ink with water over the background. Once it’s dry, I started to create my shaker window. I positioned Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Diamonds Die in the center of card panel to cut my window. I attached a piece of acetate paper right underneath of window opening. I adhered a colored ornament image to the negative of the window cut out along lots of Pretty Pink Posh 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins. I sealed the window using Foam Stripes.

I attached colored images and die cuts onto the front panel. I stamped the sentiment “Searson’s Greetings” to the lower corner of card using Vesamark embossing ink, then embossed them with Gold embossing powder and heated to set.  To add some interests, I  used couple of berry images from Pretty Pink Posh Elegant Holly Stamp set and I scattered a few Pretty Pink Posh Jewels in Raspberry color.

 

<Card 3>

Now let’s shift to a cute and whimsical card. I colored the images from Caroling Critters Stamp set with my copic markers and hand fussy cut them apart. I also colored holly leaves from Elegant Holly Stamp set and cut with it’s coordinating dies.

I ink blended the background using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn. Then I cut the window using Pretty Pink Posh Storybook 5 die. I raised the window cut out with some Foam strips to make it more 3D. I assembled all prepared pieces onto the background panel and then stamped music notes and sentiment that are also from Caroling Critters Stamp set. In the end,  I added Pretty Pink Posh Jewel in Raspberry to pull everything together.

    Oh my gosh, each is so perfect for different reasons. I love the sequins and watercolor background of the first, the ORNAMENTS are wonderful and detailed (must have), and the carolers? OH SO CUTE with their pink cheeks, etc. LOVE your cards!

    I get a kick out of the bird on the branch listening to the singers. He/she might be thinking: it’s nice to hear others sing for once. Nice.

  3. Michele F says:

    Alix, I’ve seen many cards with ink blending from yellow to pink… yours from yellow to green is just gorgeous, and bright… such a perfect stage for these carolers!
    I see you’ve managed to make those Zigs sing, too! So beautiful!

    I like the mixture of the two stamp sets (holly & poinsettia), and the ornament shaker card has a new (to me) layout that is so refreshing to see. Great job.
