Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop


Welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh blog hop! When Paulina asked me to join, I jumped at the chance to use her amazing products. Today I'm featuring Bee Friends with the coordinating dies, Scallop Hexagons Dies, Thoughtful Greetings and Build a Bloom with coordinating dies.


On my first card I started by die cutting the largest Scallop Hexagons Die and colored them with Distress Oxides. Next, I placed the hexagons on my card base and taped off the edges so I could added the background, also inked with Distress Oxides. I stamped and die cut the bee and flowers from Bee Friends and placed them on my card with foam adhesive. The card was finished with the AMAZING sentiment found in the mini stamp set. 


For my next card I started by embossing the sentiment from Thoughtful Greetings on black card stock. Next I stamped and die cut flowers and leaves from Build a Bloom. I layered Distress Stain on the back white card stock, then adhered my black sentiment panel and flowers to the card. The sweet sequins are from Mini Sparkling Clear Flower Sequins and they add the perfect amount of shine to the card. I added one more layer to the back of the card. I simply used tape adhesive and Distress Oxide ink to make a striped background. 

For those of you that are new to my blog you can also follow me on Instagram @ashmarcu. I LOVE using Pretty Pink Posh products on my cards!

Fitting together the small hexagon die cuts was perfect for the Bee Friends and Build a Bloom stamps and dies. Love the second carf with the embossed greeting in white on black CS, the Build a Bloom flowers you colored and cut, and the distressed stain in circles for the center of it all! The Mini Sparkling Clear Flower Sequins gloued randomly on the front add the perfect touch!

Happy Sunday everybody! I didn't think I'd be entering this week's Hero Arts challenge but I was reading through my favorite blogs yesterday and was totally inspired by Jennifer Holmes . Love when that happens! Within a few hours I had this card put together. I had fun adding a few extra details. I curled the beak around a pencil to make it curve. Then put two layers of dimensional tape under the middle to support the shape. I also made accordion feet. These can fold flat for mailing. :) Materials: Hero Arts Stamps (Basic Lower & Upper Case Letters, Wavy Leaf Pattern, Many Hearts), Hero Arts Flowers, Hero Arts Button and Gems, Black Buttons, BoBunny Paper, String. Have a great day!

Mama Elephant March Stampede!

Welcome to the Mama Elephant Release Design Team blog hop! Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store! www.mamaelephant.com I am so excited to share the new stamp set Ella & Friends with you! There are so many fun images to choose from in this set that all centers around the BEST elephant stamp ever. ;) I started my scene by stamping the elephant, then I masked in the bunny and bubble blower. Finally, I stamped the bubbles, puddle and splashes. I was SO fun to create. I colored the images with Copics and added a little ink to complete my scene. I trimmed it down to fit inside of the Instalove Creative Cuts and stamped the sentiment. I know you'll agree that stamping this set is super fun but first... To celebrate the new release, Mama Elephant is picking 3 winners to win their choice of stamp set! Winners will be chosen at random from the collective blogs in the Stampede. You have up to 4 chances to qualify to
