Pretty Pink Posh - Two cards with Woodland Critters Stamps and Scallop Tag Dies


Hello and Welcome !

Today I'm going to share with you two cards made with Pretty Pink Posh Products
But first, I would like to tell you about my preference in card styles.
When I make cards other than vintage styles (oh, I actually love vintage the best!), I pursue cute, pretty, neat and bright ones. 

For this, I enjoy using copic markers when coloring mostly than watercoloring. 
I also love to give my cards some dimensions rather than just to make one layer cards.
So I love various cutting dies as well as stamps, and that's the reason why I fell in love with Pretty Pink Posh.

When I got to know Pretty Pink Posh, the first item that I was fascinated with was a scalloped tag die, which I hadn't seen such unique shape in other craft brands.

When I have no new idea on card designs, I just follow my own preference described above, even though I had already made similar styles before. 
Afterall, cardmaking should be a pleasant hobby to relax, it shouldn't be stressful struggling with more creative designs or more techniques. 
That's how it went in my today's cards.



So, here is the first one.




I stamped woodland critters stamps sets on a copic friendly white cardstock with memento black ink, and then colored them with copic markers and cut out them using coordinating dies.

Then I die cut a scallop circle tags dies and distress it with distress oxide inks : Spice marmalade, fossilized amber, and cracked pistachio . I added some splatters of water onto it, then made a hole using a punch.

I chose a thick brown cardbase and a sheet of diagonal striped pattern paper for background and some sentiments from 'thoughtful greetings' stamps set. 

To give more dimensional look, I foam mounted the scallop circle tag diecut and white card stock.
Then I put the previousely cut images onto the scalloped circle tag, then sequins, and then natural twins finally. 





For the second card, I used similar layout with the first card except using scallop square tag dies instead of circle tag dies. 



I blended the tag die with distress oxide ink : worn lipstick, fossilized amber, and cracked pistachio. 
To give some more natural look, I chose a natural card stock, a soft toned plaid paper and a white card base.

Sentiments were from 'Everyday Greetings' stamps set. 
That's it . 







These little critters are so cute, so coloring them always makes me feel pleasant. 
I really enjoyed the whole process of making these.
