Hi, there!
Hope you are having a good day.
Today, I'm sharing my cards featuring Pretty Pink Posh and Wow Embossing Powder Products. I'm so glad to join the Blog Hop and I hope you will join us and have fun !



For my first card, I started by stamping Wild Rose using Wow Embossing Pad on 140lb Cold Press Watercolor paper, then I applied Wow Glitter Clear Sparkle and then heat set it.



I watercolored the images using Zig Clean Brush Markers and trimmed the panel into A2 size.
A sentiment from Encouraging Greetings set was heat embossed on black cardstock using Wow Embossing Pad and Embossing Powder White Super Fine, then I cut it into a tag using Stitched Pieces Dies.



I added Ivory Twine and Sparklingn Clear Sequins Mix as embellishment.
Look at the beautiful sparkle from the Wow Glitter. I love the frosty mood from it. 
The White Fine Embossing Powder has superfine particles that you can get clean white embossing effect no matter how the sentiment is small. The only thing you need be careful is not to apply to much embossing ink before you put on powder when you stamp images.




For my second card, I fussy cut the Wild Rose images. I cut oval frame out of a 110 Neenah White then I applied Wow Glitter Hot Gossip on it using Wow Embossing Pad and heat set it. I repeated three times.


To make a background, I ink blended a piece of A2 sized Bristol Paper using Distress Inks : Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass, and Evergreen Borough. I then splattered water and used paper towel to remove excess water. 


Next, I stamped a  sentiment from Encouraging Greetings set  on the center with  Wow Embossing Pad and heat embossed it using Wow Metallic  Gold Rich Pale Embossing Powder.


I foam mounted the Oval Frame, then I adhered blossoms and leaves around it using glue and foam tapes. 






Thank you for reading this post.
Now your next stop is Marion's blog.
Have fun!

[Pretty Pink Posh ] Camping Friends cards


Hi, friends!
Today I have two cards to share with you featuring Camping Friends Set by Pretty Pink Posh. 

My first card is a one-layer scene card using masking technique.


To begin , I prepared a piece of 300g cold press watercolor paper of A2 size, then I stamped Camping Friends Set using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I used masking technique when necessary. Next, I colored the images using my Zig Clean Real Brush Markers set. I painted the sky with Daniel Smith Prussian Blue and Phthalo Blue (GS) using a big brush and water. 



After I finished coloring, I added splatters of white acrylic ink onto the sky. I them trimmed the edges of the panel a little, followed by adhering it onto card base.



I finished off the card by adding some Sparkling Clear Sequins




For my second card, I wanted to create a lovely camping scene. So this time I cut my images using Camping Friends Coordinating Dies.  I also incoporated some lovely critters and mushrooms from Woodland Critters set.


All the images were colored with Zig Clean Real Brush Markers set. To make a background, I trimmed a piece of Bristol paper of A2 size and masked off the upper two third part with post-it sticky note. Then I ink blended the bottom area using Distress Ink Peeled Paint.  For pink clouds I used an acetate film diecut I hade made using Stitched Borders 2 Dies as a stencil for cloud patterns. I used Distress Ink Tattered Rose for this.



Once the background was done, I stamped a sentiment from Encouraging Greetings Set , then I adhered images using glue and foam tapes. I added Sparkling Clear Sequins and 6mm and 4mm Lime Sorbet Sequins.



That's it for today.
Thank you so much for reading this post. I hope you enjoyed them. 

Have a wonderful day!

[Simon Says Stamp] Summertime Cards

Hi, there!
I'm sharing three summer themed cards featuring Summertime Wafer Dies and other recent products from Simon Says Stamp, today.
To be honest, these were all made of some scraps that had been left after making my recent cards. 



Here's the first one.


I started by ink blending of an A2 sized bristol paper using Grassy Edges Stencil and Cloud for Days Stencil. I used Peeled Paint, Tattered Rose and Worn lipstick.  Next, I cut the panel using Summertime Wafer Dies to make a shaker card. I put various sequins and seed beads from Pretty Pink Posh into it then I adhered Classic Bicycle diecuts on the front panel.



For my second card, I made an alcohol ink panel using three pastel colors of alcohol ink amd Yupo paper. Then I cut it with Summertime Wafer Dies . I prepared A2 sized Ivory Cardstock, then I gave it stitched lines patterns by using MFT Basic Stitch Lines Dies.


After I adhered the panel onto Orange Peel Card base, I finished off the card by adding some enamel dots. 
The design concept of this card was inspired from my very talented friend Michele Ferguson , HERE
Thank you, Michele!



My third card is also a shaker as the first one but I made the shaker panel pop up this time.
I started by making background panel out of pattern paper  that was in the June Simon Says Stamp Kit with diecutting it using Stitched Wall Background Dies.  


In order to ground the Summertime shaker, I also added Flower Cluster Diecuts and Bikini Diecuts. As a final embellishment, I added Pretty Pink Posh Amethyst Jewels




So now I finished my three cards. Which one is your favorite? ;)





Thanks for reading this. I hope you enjoyed it.
Have a wonderful day!
