Pretty Pink Posh October Blog Hop!

 



Hi Everyone! I'm so excited to share that I am a guest designer for Pretty Pink Posh this month! Today is day one of a THREE day blog hop celebrating their new release!


I created my card using their new products; Villages Stamps, Village Dies, Village Additions Stamps and Village Additions Dies. I also used the greetings set Holiday Scripts Stamps and Holiday Scripts Dies.


I stamped, die cut and colored several of the images from the village sets. These are SO enjoyable to put to together and bring me back to my childhood when I painted ceramic Christmas villages. I layered the building on top of white glitter cardstock which gives the card a magical feel. The details are amazing. I kept the buildings soft which helped the greeting to pop. TIP: I cut the "s" off of the large Holiday sentiment so I could group it with Greetings. 

I can't wait to share the other cards I have created for this month! These stamps are quickly becoming some of my favorites!

There is an amazing giveaway today. Just leave a comment on each blog along the hop. One comment will be chosen each day to win a $25 gift certificate to Pretty Pink Posh. Comments must be left by 11:59PM PST on 10/19/2021.

There is also an amazing stencil set that is FREE on the Pretty Pink Posh website for orders over $125. Check out the details...


Today's blog hop! So much inspiration! Check it out...

This is so pretty in the paler tones. Christmas doesn't always have to be just bright red or green. Your interpretation if simply beautiful.

Third, love the use of pink as the shadow to your word die -- nice echo of the colors used in the scene and goes right along w/ the 2021 Xmas Theme of PINK IS HERE! Thx for sharing this great example!

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!

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.
