Pretty Pink Posh: September Blog Hop



Hello, and welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh September product release blog hop day 1.

If you've arrived here from Kelly Latevola, you're in the right place. There's a full list of participants at the bottom of this post if you're lost or starting from here.

I'll be sharing three cards today. They will feature the adorable and lovable new stamp sets: Trick or Treat FriendsAngel Friends and Reindeer Friends. For all three cards, I stamped the images with Copic friendly black ink on smooth white cardstock, and colored them in with Copic markers. I used white Gelly Roll pens to add accents, and cut them out with their coordinating dies. I also used Wink of Stella here and there for shine. The background panels were inked with Distress Inks and Distress Oxides on smooth Bristol cardstock. The sentiments were stamped with Versamark Ink and heat set with embossing powder.  




For the first card, I die-cut black cardstock using the Stitched Notes dies. The rectangle die included in this set gives you gorgeous stitched detailing. I die-cut the inner rectangle piece with Stitched Duo 3, and did partial die-cutting to make it into a door that opens and closes. 

For the background panel, I used a spider web stencil and inked it with Distress Inks and Distress Oxides. To assemble the card, I adhered the background panel to a folded card base, then added the die-cut frame on top. After, I laid a double layer of foam adhesive on the back of the inner rectangle, and mounted inside the frame. Lastly, I arranged and adhered the images from Trick or Treat Friends inside the door.
Please note: The spiders are from Halloween Friends.




The second card features a sweet angel. She's one of eight angel images from the Angel Friends set. I also used the trees and the small box from a older holiday set, Holiday Pals. I borrowed the hat from Reindeer Friends.  On the distressed panel and the trees, I splattered diluted white acrylic paint with a brush to create snowy backgrounds.

To frame the front panel, I die-cut white card stock with the larger rectangle die from Scallop Frames. I adhered the frame to the front panel with double layers of foam adhesive. If you prefer a flatter card, you can omit the foam adhesive and just use double sided tape. I also die-cut white cardstock to make a snowy hill with the wavy scallop die from Scallop Borders, and I adhered that on top of the frame. Lastly, I added all the images with foam adhesive and glued on some sequins from the Sparkling Clear Mix.




Don't you just love these reindeer? These little guys are so cute and perfect for making holiday cards with. For this last card, I used a snow stencil with Versamark ink and white embossing powder to create a snowy background. I actually did this before distressing the panel. For the snowy hills, I die-cut white cardstock with Scallop Borders, and added some light blue ink to the top edges. The sentiment was stamped on the second largest negative die-cut using Storybook 1 dies. To finish, I adhered the snowy hills, images and the sentiment to the card front using double sides tapes and foam tapes.

That's it for today. Thank you for stopping by and have fun hopping! Next up is Heather Hoffman.

Hugs, Amy :)
