[Pretty Pink Posh] Fly Away Friends Cards




Hi, there!
Today, I'm sharing a couple of cards using the fun Fly Away Friends Stamp Set by Pretty Pink Posh. I think this has been somewhat underestimated set so it is perfect time to show how it is cute and pretty like other stamps from Pretty Pink Posh.

It has three hot air-balloon images with different size, two cute critters faces, one big airplae that is very cool and lots of fun sentiments!
  Hope you will enjoy them!

[ Card 1 ]



I made a custom cloud stencil by dicutting an acetate film with Stitched Borders 2 Dies, then I ink blended A2 sized Bristol Paper using my cloud stencil. I used regular distress inks : Seedless Preserves, Shaded Lilac , Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick. I mixed 1~2 colors to make various shades when stenciling and then I added splatters of water a little. 

I then stamped Fly Away Friends Set onto 110b Neenah White Paper and colored the images using Copic Markers.
A small balloon image was stamped using a purple dye ink. I then cut the images using Fly Away Coordinating Dies.





[ Card 2 ]


 I made a stamping background using the lovely images fromFly Away Friends Stamp Set. I used Barely Beige ink to make subtle patterns. Then I foam mounted my colored images and adhered the panel onto Peacock Teal Card Base using foam tapes. As a final embellishment, I added some Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix


[ Card 3 ]



I made a top-folded card base using 110b Neenah White Paper, then I masked top and bottom of the front panel using post-it sticky note paper. I ink blended the empty space using my mini distess inks : Carved Pumpkin, Wild Honey, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, and Peacock Feathers. Then I splattered water and removed excess water using dry tissue. 



I simply adhered my copic-colored images using foam tapes and stamped sentiments using MISTI tool. The cloud is from Fly A Kite Stamp set. Finshed off thr card by adding Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix

Just FYI, Pretty Pink Posh offers 25% sale for this set while supplies last. Have fun!

Here's my card for challenge inspiration. I used Dream Big Stamps and Dies set from Hero Arts.


I started by stamping Dream Big Stamps on 110lb Neenah White paper and dircutting them with Dream Big Coordinating Dies. I then colored the images using copic markers.




Next, I trimmed a piece of Bristol paper into A2 size, then I made a rainbow cloudy sky using Simon Says Stamp Clouds Stencil and distress inks. (Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Fossilized Amber, Mowed Lawn, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch, and Seedless Preserve).
I also cut a white card stock using Stitched Whirl Background Dies and then trimmed the piece into 3.25×4.5 inch.



After I foam mounted the white stitched whirl panel onto rainbow clouds panel, I adhered stamped images using foam tapes and glue. Sentiment was also chosen from the same stamp set.
Finally, I adhered the panel onto Peacock Teal card base and finished it off with Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix and Ballerina Pink Sequins.

[Simon Says Stamp] June Release - Good Vibes Collection - Strangeness




Hi, crafty friends!
It's the day of the brand new June Release "Good Vibes" by Simon Says Stamp
Today, I'm sharing my cards featuring "STRANGENESS" stamp set




I watercolored them using Daniel Smith Watercolor Paints and added splatters of dark ink and white ink.


Sentiment was heat embossed in white using Wow Opaque Bright White Super Fine embossing powder. This fine powder helps you a lot to heat emboss small or thin letters. 



After I foam mounted the panel onto Neenah Desert Storm Card Base, I finished it off by adding 4mm Metallic Rose gold6mm Metallic Rose Gold sequins and Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix from Pretty Pink Posh.



The second card was also painted with Daniel Smith Watercolors. I foam mounted the panel onto Island Blue Card Base, and then embellished it using Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix  and 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.



The Strangeness Stamp Set is such unique in its images and sentiments and I love the quote "There is no beauty without some strangeness".


I was actually inspired by this quote so I added some strangeness in my watercoloring, today. Did you like it?





Thank you for reading this post.
 Happy Shopping !
