Pretty Pink Posh Fall Borders Watercolor Card

Hi, friends!
Today, I'm going to share a very simple watercolor card made with Fall Borders Stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh. This week, Pretty Pink Posh is offering 15% discount for all the items in the Fall category at the same time with the Fall Theme Week going on the PPP blog where beautiful autumn cards inspiration is shared every day. You don't want to miss both of them! 

I stamped Fall Borders on watercolor paper using Distress Ink Tea Dye, then I colored the images using the Karin Brushmarkers. I loved some colors from the set including Burgundy, Olive Black, Sepia, Lush Green and etc.  The birthday sentiment was chosen from the Cupcake Critters Stamp set. Recently, I find that the Metallic Rose Gold Sequins look very well on the autumn color palettes, so I used them again this time. I also added some 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins

Now I finished my card. Doesn't it look so easy and simple to make? I love the Fall Borders Stamp set which makes it possible for anyone to do CAS designs. 

Thanks for your visit!

Pretty Pink Posh Giving Thanks Card

Hi, everyone! 
Here's another Autumn Greetings Card I made using several products from Pretty Pink Posh. 
Similar to my previous card, I created a stenciled background using the Pumpkin Background Stencil, then I added lovely images from various sets.

Two signboards from Fall Signs Stamp set, and a cute little mouse from Pumpkin Patch Critters Set were used. I chose a great sentiment from Giving Thanks Stamp set. It is all about Thank YOU! 

In order to give some visual interest to my simple looking panel, I splattered with pearl white and gold inks. I wan't sure which color of sequins wood look good on this autumn scene, but I finally found that the rose gold sequins did look perfect together with the autumn colors! I used 6mm Metallic Rose Gold and 4mm Metallic Rosd Gold Sequins

That's it from me for today. Thanks for visiting!

Pretty Pink Posh BOO! Halloween Cards

Hi, friends!
The BOO sets from Pretty Pink Posh's August Release have been very popular and they are back again at the PPP Store
Until recently, I've had no idea on how to design cards with this set. Just a few hours ago, I found a gorgeous Halloween palette on the Pinterest, which gave me new design inspiration instantly. So I ran to my crafting desk and finished two cards. So here's the first one. 

To begin, I cut a piece of violet- pink card stock that I had bought at the local store in my neighborhood, then I added more deep colors using the dye inks shown in the picture. I die cut BOO and set the script cuts aside. 

I made the negative die-cut into the front panel of a shaker. In each well created by the letters, I put purple, gold, and black star confetti from the Fall Confetti Bundle.

For the shaker background, I sponged some colors on SSS Sunshine Card Stock with Altenew inks Caramel Toffee and Paper Bag

After I assembled my shaker, I glued Spooky Fence, which was cut from brown card stock and ink blended with Altenew inks Caramel Toffee, Paper Bag, and Dark Chocolate. I then adhered cute images from Boo Stamp Set and Halloween Pals Stamp Set

I splattered with white gouache all over the panel, let them dry, added some clear sequins and finished off the firsr card.


Now it's time to use the left-over BOO script diecuts!

 I sponged on the top of each letter the same colors to give more shades. The background panel was created with the same way as of the first shaker card. I gave to it a little bit diffetent look by adding olive green color on the bottom. 

Except for using the positive diecuts, most processes are quite similar with the first one. 

Now, I finished two cards from one diecutting and same color palette!! It was so easy and FUN! 
Which one would you prefer? I'd love to here from you;) 

Have a great day!
Thank you.

On Stamp Going #2 - Cosmos autumn greetings card

Hi, everyone!
I hope you are enjoying the pleasant autumn weather. Today, I'm sharing an autumn greeting card as the 2nd project for On_Stamp_Going.

If you don't know what it is, here's a brief summary. On_Stamp_Going (OSG) is a local stamp art community, where 19 members, each with her own unique styles, gather together sharing their works on a monthly basis.Each month, we're given the same items  and should make one project using them with mandatory use of more stamps & dies of ourselves.  Here are what I was given this time. 

Sizzix Bigz Pocket Watch Frame diecut, Whimsy Stamp Into the Farm, mini-pearls sticker and a metal label frame. 
How exciting to think of that there will be 19 unique projects based on these same items?? 
So here goes my card :) 

I started by diecutting the watch frame using Filigree Wreath Die to make some patterns on it. As the diecut was made of kraft paper, I needed white background to add some colors. So I applied White Gesso using my brush and then after the gesso was dried, I colored it with some distress paints : Weathered Wood, Peacock Feathers, Tattered Rose. I used a heat tool to dry the inks up, then I added more tan shades around the edges using distess ink Vintage Photo.

The large stamped panel was also colored with some yellow & brown distress inks & distress oxide inks. I then spritzed with Bronze Mica Spray.
Next, I cut SSS Cosmos Stem Die and an Italic watch (made by Marianne Design) from watercolor paper, then I colored cosmoses using my Zig Clean Brush markers and the watch with distress inks Mermaid Lagoon, Chipped Saphire and Vintage Photo.

For all my diecuts and panel, I splattered with white gouache and various colors of pearl inks using the Prima Metallic Accents.
I also brushed Wink of Stella Clear onto the flowers and clock hand to give fine glittery texture. 

After I assembled layers and adhered flowers around the watch, I glued the metal label frame on the lower part, then I insered a piece of sentiment chosen from SSS Greetings Mix 1 set.

The very last step was to add some pearl stickers and ribbon. Do you see the violet colored pearl on the label frame? I added this color onto thw white pearl with Smooch Accent Ink Dusk and I love how it came out! 

Thank you for reading this long post. 
I'm entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Instagram Challenge(#SSSIGChallenge) where theme is "Fall" and Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where the theme is "Something Clear". My card would fit into the theme as I used Glitter Clear Wink of Stella on my card ;)

Have a wonderful day!
