[Pretty Pink Posh] Geraniums cards

Hi, there!
Today, I'm sharing three cards I made using Geraniums stamp set by Pretty Pink Posh.
The first two cards were shared on the Pretty Pink Posh Blog where you could get details on them. 

For your information, copic markers numbers I used are as follows :

Red Geranium : RV69-R56-RV34-R14-YR15-Y35
Purple Geranium : B79-V17-V15-V12-V01-BG000
Leaves : YG99-YG97-YG96-YG93-YG21 (Olive green) G29-G07-YG03-YG01 (Green)

If you are interested in more details, please read my post HERE.

Before moving onto my third card, I would love to share the news that I'm joining Pretty Pink Posh Design Team for another 6month term. I'm so blessed to be given this precious oppprtunity and I can't thank all of you enough for your continuous support and friendship♡ .

I made this third card thinking of my crafty friends.

I stamped Geraniums on 300g Cold Pressed Arches Watercolor paper using distress ink Antique Linen, then I watercolored them. Next, I trimmed the panel into A2 size (4.25 × 5.5inch) and then I diecut it using Scallop Frames Die. I used smaller one of the dies set and I did 3 more diecutting out of white card stock and glued them top on top. 

In order to make a center panel, I pulled out a piece of Bristol paper , then I ink blended it using Distress Oxide Inks : Fossilized Amber, Tattered Rose , and Worn Lipstick. After blending, I spritzed water on it and patted dry by using paper towel. A sentiment from Encouraging Greetings set was chosen and stamped using Versfine Onyx Black Ink.

Next, I adhered negative diecut from watercolor panel onto the ink blended panel, then I adhered Scallop Frames Diecut in the center. To make the card look like a shaker, I glued various sequins and seed beads on the inked panel inside the frame. 

After I adhered the panel onto a card base, I finished off the card by adding more Sparkling Clear sequins and Ivory Jewels

Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoyed my cards.
Have a great day!♡

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge : Fun in the Sun

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

CLICK HERE if you would like to go directly to the Kids Vacation Challenge


This week the challenge is

Fun In The Sun 

We are showcasing  Mama Elephant Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would sure love to see them used!
The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a FABULOUS $50 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! 

Here is my card for the challenge inspiration. I used Dandelion Wishes and 3D Pop Up  Card Dies from Mama Elephant. I wanted to build a scene that little critters are having fun in the sunny field.

I stared by stamping th eDandelion Wishes images on 80lb Neenah White using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with copic markers. I then cut them all by using Dandelion Wishes Coordinating Dies.

Next, I cut Simon Says Stamp Cotton Candy Cardstock using 3D Pop Up Cards Dies. For matting papers on the wings, I cut Bristol paper by using the dies in the set, and I colored them with distress inks.
I used Peeled Paint for green, Worn Lipstick and Dried Marigold for Coral.

Once I assembled the 3d pop up box, I adhered my images where I wanted to place. Take a closer look at those wings where I built small lovely scenes.

When you flat down the card with front wings folded down, you could also see a fun & adorable scene wide.

For the sentiment on the front wing, I used another stamp set by Mama Elephant, which is Tea with Friend Set.

This is the outer surface of the card when you unfold the front wings. Isn't it amazing that all the various dies used here are from just one dies set? I really love the Mama Elephant's 3D Pop Up Box Card Dies

As a final embellishment, I added 4mm Ballerina Pink Sequins.
