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.

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!
