[Pretty Pink Posh] Cards for School Friends Set

Hi, friends! Today, I'm sharing two cards featuring School Friends set from Pretty Pink Posh, which is a perfect stamp for school & teacher themes. 

To begin, I stamped School Friends on 80lb Neenah White Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink then I colored the images with copic markers. I cut them all using School Friends Coordinating Dies.

I trimmed a piece of Bristol Paper into A2 size (4.24×5.5 inch), then I ink blended it using Distress Oxide Inks - Wild Honey, Fossilized Amber, Squeezed Lemonade, Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers from bottom to top.
To give some interesting layout to the card, I diecut the inked panel using Storybook 1 Dies. Among the three windows created by Storybook 1 Dies, two were to for shaker window and one for chalkboard. 
I diecut Storybook 1 Dies out of black card stock again, heat embossed sentiment in white and then I added a little bit of white pigment ink around the edges by just using my fingertip.  To give some dimension to the chalkboard, I layered  4 pieces including the top one. 

In order to make a shaker, background panel was inked with Distress Oxide inks Fossilized Amber and Picked Raspberry

Colored images were then adhered using glue and foam tapes. I put the panel onto Card Base made of 110 Neenah White  then I added Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix as a final embellishment.

For my second card, I diecut 110 Neenah White paper and 100 Schoolhouse Red Card stock using Scallop Borders 2 Dies and adhered them.  Sentiment was heat embossed on Schoolhouse Red Card Stock in white and I diecut it using Mini Tags Dies Set.

I used mini hearts paper from Pebbles Forever My Always  6×6 paper pad as a background panel. To add some lovely mood I added Ivory Twine Ribbon. 

The floor shades were made by copic coloring : E30-E51-E50. After I adhered School Friends images, I embelished the card by adding Metallic Gold Jewels, Buttercream Jewels, and 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins.

Now, two cards are finished. Thanks for reading this post.  Did you enjoy it?
