Pretty Pink Posh November Product Blog Hop!

Hello! Welcome to Pretty Pink Posh November release blog hop!

I am excited and been waiting for this day to share with you Pretty Pink Posh’s new stamp set and dies. Yes, Paulina is releasing stamp set and coordinating dies. Yay! Very exciting and a huge congratulations to Paulina for her new adventure.

For this hop, you should have arrived from Shannon McComb‘s blog. If this your first hop, then don’t worry, I will list the participants of this hop towards the end of the post. Make sure you visit all the blogs and comment. There are two giveaways. The details of that is also at the end of the post.

I have a few cards to share. So make yourself a cuppa and enjoy!

First up are two cards using Winter Friends Stamp Set, Winter Friends coordinating dies and Photo Frames die set.


Sending holiday cheer card//

I love the Photo Frames die set. They are perfect size to go on the card front either as a cluster or just one. I decided to cluster in three. I choose the large Photo Frame and the two smallest ones. The cute images of dog, cat and penguin from Winter Friends stamp set is designed to peek out of the other elements in the stamp set such as the stockings and coffee. I decided to use the photo frames instead. I stamped, copic coloured, die cut and brush the images with Wink of Stella.  On a white card base, I sponged Spun Sugar and Cracked Pistachio distress inks. Then randomly stamped the music notes from the stamp set in black ink. I then adhered the photo frames die cut using foam adhesives overlapping the smaller frames slightly over the large one. Then I adhered the coloured die cut images from the Winter Friends stamp set again using foam adhesives. Stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on a strip of cardstock sponged with Spun Sugar distress ink. Finally embellished with Classic Christmas sequins mix. Here is a closeup.

On my second card, I use the baubles from the Winter Friends stamp set and photo frames dies.

Season's Greetings card1//

For this card, I stamped copic coloured and die cut the baubles from Winter Friends Stamp Set. Then I die cut the large photo frame with gold glitter cardstock, the smaller photo frames using white cardstock.  On a white card panel, I sponged some Seedless Preserve and Mermaid Lagoon distress inks to the centre of the panel. Then layered and glued the large photo frame over the two white photo frames. Added the inside of the large photo frame in white, then layered glued the baubles with bunched up thread under it. I stamped the greetings on a strip of white cardstock, trimmed an angled edge and adhered using foam. Embellished with Classic Christmas sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. The card base is brushed gold cardstock. Here is a closeup.

Next card features Pretty Pink Posh Exclusive Scallop Frame Dies, Rainy Days stamp set and Rainy Days Coordinating dies


Brighter Days card 2//

I did some ink smooshing technique to make my background for this card. I wanted a watercolour wash look to the background. I used acetate sheet to smoosh Salty Ocean distress ink on my card front. This is not watercolour cardstock but Neenah Solar white. I added layers of ink by drying the ink layer in between. Then I flattened the cardfront by putting the card base between few cardstock packs. Then I set out to stamp, copic colour and die cut the umbrella and the handle. Die cut the smaller scallop die using glitter gold cardstock, stamped the sentiment on white strip of cardstock.

Then I went back to my card base which is now dry and flat. I stamped some raindrop using blue pigment ink. Since pigment ink sits on top of the cardstock, they add a tiny bit of dimension making the rain drops dimensional. I adhered the scallop frame using foam adhesives, similarly the umbrella in the middle, then the sentiments strips on the handle of the umbrella. I finally embellished the card with Clear Droplets and Onyx 4mm and 6mm sequins. Here is a closeup.
