Pretty Pink Posh August 2019 Release Now Available !

Hi, everyone! The new release at Pretty Pink Posh is officially live and I'm sharing two cards with you, today. I'm featuring Bear Friends Set from the new release and here goes my first card. 

I started by stamping and coloring Bear Friends Set using Copic Markers and cut them all using Bear Friends Coordinating Dies

In order to make a background for the bears, I decided to create a sky with clouds using Stitched Borders 2 Dies.
I had once made a cloudy border stencil out of acetate film by die-cutting it with Stitched Borders 2 Dies, which I had been keeping for reuse. 
Using my DIY Stencil and some dye inks, I made an ink-blended background as shown below. For the hill, I simply cut another piece of acetate film in a negative hill shape by freehand and used it as a stencil. 

Once I finished my panel, the next steps were very easy. I just adhered my colored images to create a scene using Glue Dots and foam tapes. 
I also adhered several images from Woodland CrittersPumpkin Patch Critters, and Autumn Wreath Set to make the scene into an autumn one. Next, I added white accents to the images using a 10mm ball white gel pen. 

A sentiment from the Bear Friends Set was heat embossed in white on a red tag mad with Stitched Labels 1 Dies, which was adhered on the left upper corner, and then I embellished my card using Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix and 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins

My second project for today is a shaker card using the new pumpkin-shaped Grateful Shaker Die.

I started with Autumn Leaves Stencil, which is also part of the new release to make an autumn scene.
In detail, I ink blended a piece of A2 sized Bristol paper using the dye inks shown below, then I placed Autumn Leaves Stencil onto it and inked through the stencil again to create a tone-on-tone look. I made another panel with lighter colors to be used in the shaker background. 

I diecut Grateful Shaker Die two times and glued them together for a dimensional look. The top layer was colored slightly using Copic Markers.
I adhered images from Bear Friends Set and Pumpkin Patch Critters Set around the shaker, adhered the shaker onto a card base and finished it off. 

Thanks for reading today's post. Happy Shopping!

Reverse Confetti August Stock Your Stash Challenge

Hi, friends! I'm back with a new card for the Stock Your Stash Challenge going on over at the Reverse Confetti Blog. This is a monthly challenge where you can apply your card(s) or project(s) which fit the theme during the whole month. And the theme for August Challenge is Wedding

Here's my take on it. 

I started by stamping and coloring Cake & Champagne Set using my Copic Markers. I then cut the images using the Cake & Champagne Confetti Cuts

I rounded white & gold ribbon around the hearts cover panel and then I foam mounted Hex Tag on it, which was embellished with heart-shaped eyelet. Before mounting the tag, I stamped sentiment from the Cake & Champagne Set. 

In turn, I adhered my colored images including the floral bouquets and wine glasses around the tag. Finally, I embellished my card with some iridescent sequins. 

Thanks for reading today's post. Reverse Confetti is having a 20% sale for summer which goes through today, so you don't want to miss the chance!

Pretty Pink Posh Toucans Card

Hi, friends! Today, I'm going to share my last summer card featuring Pretty Pink Posh products. 

I had colored Tropical Toucans with Copic Markers a while ago, but I didn't put them into a card. So I decided to use these cute images this time. 

I made a soft colored stencil background using the Tropical Background Stencil with Distress Oxide inks (Spun Sugar, Spiced Marmalade, and Twisted Citron). I then splattered with pearl ink onto the panel. 

I thought Stitched Films Strip Die would be a perfect nest for toucans, so I foam mounted it and then I added toucans and branches around the die-cut.

I added sentiment from Sea Friends Set and then I finished off my card by adding dome Sparkling Clear Sequins.

Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed it :)

Reverse Confetti August Blog Hop

Hi, crafty friends! I'm so excited to join the August Blog Hop for Reverse Confetti. This time, we're showcasing any ABC projects but a card, so I'm going to share a wedding garland with you. 

 Since I wanted to put letters "L.O.V.E" on my banners, I used a mini alphabet punch board.

I thought Stitched Hex Tag Dies would be perfect for making a banner so I made four Stitched Hex Tags. Next, I stamped images from Bold Blooms, Happy Mail, and  Cake & Champagne sets, colored the images and then I cut them all using the coordinating dies. I also heat embossed butterflies from Butterfly Blossoms in white on vellum paper.

In turn, I embellished my tags using colored images and alphabets using glue or foam-tapes give them some dimension. For "L", I added Happy Mail images.

For "O", I adhered Bold Blooms images around the letter.

For "V" and "E", I added lovely images from  Cake & Champagne sets.

I matted each tag onto another layer which I cut from the same paper as of alphabets and then finally embellished my garland using some iridescent sequins.

Thank you for visiting here and reading this post. I hope you enjoyed it.

Simon Says Stamp Believe In You Release Blog Hop Day-1

Hello and welcome to my blog for the Believe In You Release Blog Hop Day 1 by Simon Says Stamp. I'm so grateful to be joining this honorable blog hop. Hopefully, you've come here from my super talented friend Barb's Blog, or you can start at the Simon Says Stamp Blog to be sure to hop along with all the stops. You don't want to miss those beautiful inspirations out there ;).

Today, I have six cards to share with you, most of which were made very simple so that you can get a new and quick inspiration to play along with.

[Card 1]

I started with stamping Never Quit Swimming Stamp set on 80lb Neenah White paper, then I cut the images using my Scan N Cut. I then colored them with Copic Markers. For the background, I mixed green and blue inks on a piece of watercolor paper, then I diecut it using Under THe Sea Collage Die, and then I splattered with water and white acrylic ink.

Next, I foam mounted the framed panel onto a piece of yellow paper from Watercolor Wishes paper pack, and then I adhered my colored images here and there. I chose a sentiment from the same Never Quit Swimming Stamp, which was heat embossed in white on Schoolhouse Red Cardstock and cut in fishtail shaped tag. 

[Card 2]

For Card 2 and 3, I made masked circular stencil backgrounds to create clean and simple designs. 

First, I cut a large circle out of a sheet of paper, then I placed it onto bristol paper, and I did stenciling through the circle window using Waves and Hills Stencil, by which you can create a circular-shaped stencil background.  I splattered with water and removed excess water using paper towels. Next, I diecut the panel using a Waverly Frame Die

I adhered my colored images and sentiment from Never Quit Swimming Stamp set as shown in the picture, then I stamped a sentiment from Tiny Words set. 

[Card 3]

I made the same stencil background as of Card 2, then I cut it using Wonky Rectangles Dies. I adhered colored images from Your Light Stamp set.

I stamped a sentiment from the brand new Clean Line Everyday Set on the lower part of the panel and I also added a small sentiment from the same Clean Line Everyday set which was heat embossed in white on Schoolhouse Red paper. 

Card base: Fog Gray Cardstock 

[Card 4]

There are lots of beautiful floral dies in the new release of which I'm showcasing two beautiful sunflower dies, Sunflower Stem and Sunflower Frame

For the card 4, I made a navy background using Neenah texture Navy and Diamond Pattern Die.  I diecut Sunflower Stem from white, yellow, green and brown colored cardstock, then I added more shades using Copic Markers, assembled them into a flower. 

 A small sentiment from Clean Line Everyday was stamped on a Tab diecut, which was foam mounted next to the flower. 

Embellishment: Ivory twine, colored enamel dots.

[Card 5]

This is a shaker card featuring Sunflower Frame Die. I simply water-colored the Sunflower Frame die-cuts and assemble the flower using in-lay technique. 

Shaker background was ink blended using olive and orange inks listed at the end of this post, and I put various sequins into the shaker: Metallic Gold3mm Sparkling Clear, Lime Sorbe & Mossy Green. Again, I added a small sentiment from the Clean Line Everyday set, which was heat embossed in white on red cardstock and cut in fishtail shape. 

Frame Die: Waverly //Card base: Neenah Desert 100lb

[Card 6]

Here's today's last card on which I created a scene full of sunflowers. Can you tell that I used both the Sunflower Stem and Sunflower Frame? :) 

I used the same colors as of Card 5 for my background, and the flowers were made in a way similar with of Card 4. The sentiment was from Messages for Everyday

Copic Markers for Flowers: Y38/Y35 on yellow cardstock, E79/E77/E74/E71 for seeds, YG97/YG95/YG93/YG01 for leaves

That's it for today. Thank you for reading this long post. I hope you enjoyed my cards. Now, your next stop to hop along is Lea Lawson. I can't wait to see her fabulous projects!
