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.

Love the hexies!

Cheri said...

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!
