Hello, there !
It's finally New Release Day for Pretty Pink Posh.
As you might have already seen from sneak peek postings at PPP blog, lots of pretty, fun, versatile products are released.
Here are some cards I have shared so far on Instagram with quick review on how I made them.
For the first card, I used Love Shaker Die, Cupid Friends Stamp Set, with Coordinating dies, and Love Sentiments Stamp Set, all included in the New Release. Combination of these three sets is just perfect for making Valentine's cards, isn't it ? :)
I colored the images using copic markers, shaker background was colored with distress oxide ink (Fossilized amber), heart frame and card base were cut from a piece of Cotton Candy from Simon Says Cardstock. Soft and colorful dot pattern paper is by MFT stamps.
Shaker was filled with Spring Blooms Sequins Mix (also the new release ) and Daffodil Seed Beads. I just found that when you make shaker cards, mixing cupped sequins and seed beads makes the shakers really look pretty !!
For the second card, I ink blended an A2 panel with distress oxide inks : Peeled paint, Salty ocean, and Broken china. Then I splattered water and black pearl paint.
I did no-line coloring on the Pretty Petunias Stamp Set using an distress ink (Antique linen) and Daniel Smith Watercolor paints (Quinacridone coral, Undersea green).Then I cut them using coordinating dies .
I then adhered the flowers and leaves onto the panel using glue and foam tapes, sentiment was chosen from Birthday Friends Stamp Set. Final touch was adding some 4mm and 6mm Metalic Gold Sequins and Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix.
For the second card, I stamped petunias using MISTI and masking technique, then watercolored them using distress inks (Brocken China, Cracked Pistachio, Peeled Paint, Mowed Green). Sentiment is from Love Sentiments Stamp Set , red colored label was cut using Stitched Labes 1 Dies.
The New Release also has fun birthday themed stamps and dies.
Here in the 4th card, I used Birthday Friends Stamp Set and Coordinating dies to make a delightful birthday card.
I inkblended the background panel using distress oxide inks (Worn Lipstick, Fossilized Amber, Cracked Pistachio).
All the images were colored using copic markers. I also used Scallope Borders 2 Dies, Twine and Bows Dies, Sparkling Clear Snowflake Sequins Mix, and 3mm sparkling clear sequins. Stripe pattern paper is from Doodlebug design.
The last two cards are featuring Birthday Scene Stamp set. This set is an inexpensive small stamps set, but it does all to make a card. Using only one stamp set, you can make this whole scene without masking or adding something at all !! This set is definitely my favorite among the new release !
For the 5th card, I stamped the Birthday Scene Stamp set on an A2 sized panel, then colored with copic markers. Then I masked them to color the background using distress oxide inks (Antique linen and Cracked Pistachio). I chose a celebrating sentiment from Everyday Greetings Stamp Set. Then I cut the panel using Scalloped Frame Dies, I cut the frame twice to make it stand out . Then I finished off the card using Northwest Sequins Mix , Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix and twine.
For the last card, I added candles from Birthday Friends Stamp Set on the top of the balloon to give it some interest, otherewise, similar process. I also used Twine and Bows Dies, Stitched Borders 2 Dies Party Time Sequins Mix and 3mm sparkling clear sequins . The plaid pattern paper is from Lawn Fawn, and the red cardbase is School House Red from Simon Says Cardstock.
That's it for today. Thank you so much for your stopping by.
