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.

Ellen Hutson & Avery Elle Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone! I'm SO excited for today's blog hop! This collaboration set is amazing and I can't wait to see how all of the talented designers used it today and how YOU will use it! To create my card I started by stamping, die cutting and coloring several of the images from Peek a Boo Pals Camp Wanna Stamp (love that name!). It's available HERE with stamps and dies or HERE with just stamps.  Next, I blended and splashed ink on a piece of cardstock to create the background. Then, I stamped the lightening bugs and added their glow, along with coloring their wings white. TIP: I used a Q-Tip to add just a small amount of Distress Oxide to make the bugs glow.  Finally, I added the sentiment and adhered everything to a card base. This set is amazing and it's PACKED full of images! There are still more images that I can't wait to stamp. Check out the set... Next up is Heather Campbell . She is SO talented, I'm sure you'll love what she created. Finally, it wou

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!
