Sequin Heart Card featuring Pretty Pink Posh

Hope your having a lovely day so far!
Stopping in quickly to share a quick card featuring the very fun new Sparkle Dot 1 Patterns stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh.
This stamp set was created to use with sequins and make fun sequin shapes but I've seen it used with Nuvo drops as well and looks amazing!

Ok so I started with a white piece of card stock and cut the sides using the Scallop Borders die and adhered onto a smoke gray card base from SSS.
I stamped the heart pattern into the middle and used the Friendship sequin mix to create the heart. I went back and forth between the 4mm and 6mm sequins, which ever fit best, and adhered down with zots bling mini glue dots.
I cut and adhered the twine and bows in the center and stamped my sentiment from the Everyday Greetings stamp set.
That finishes off my quick and simple card today, the sequin heart gives big impact so it looks awesome against a simple card.
That;s all for me today!
Thank you SO much for stopping in!!

Pretty Pink Posh November Release Blog Hop

Hi there!
So very happy to be joining you today for the Pretty Pink Posh November release blog hop.
All the new products are amazing and I had so much fun creating with them!
You should have arrived from Lisa Elton's blog, but if you happen to be starting here I will have a full list of the hop at the end of this post.

I have two creations to share with you today!
I started with a white card base and although its hard to see I used the Merry Christmas die and some of the festive holly leaves dies to emboss the background with. Rather than using a cutting plate in your die cutting machine you would use a rubber mat and it will emboss instead of cut!
I then created shaker elements out of the open leaves from the festive holly dies and filled with the 4mm Vintage Christmas mix. I adhered my elements onto my card and die cute my sentiment from dark red card stock and adhered onto my card.

For my second creation I used the very adorable Winter Woodland stamp set along with coordinating dies, Sparkling Clear Snowflakes and the Starry Night Sequin mix. I started with a fog piece of card stock that I cut slightly smaller than an A2 size card. I used the Scallop Circle to make the circle opening to create my shaker piece. I used the Scallop Circle die cut again with a piece of white card stock so I can adhere the scallop frame on top of my acetate. I loaded my shaker element with Sparkling Clear Snowflakes, Starry Night mix, Snowflake Sequin Mix and the Silver Star Confetti.

I stamped my images on watercolor paper and colored in with Zig real brush markers and cut out using the coordinating dies, and adhered over my shaker piece, I stamped some of the snow onto the background and stamped my sentiment onto the bottom.
I adhered my main panel onto a light blue card base.

That finishes my creations today! I hope you enjoyed!
Next on the blog hop is Cathy Zielske.
Be sure to leave comments along the way as there are 2 $25 gift certificates up for grabs.
Comments must be left by 11:59PM PST November 7/2017 and winners will be announced on the Pretty Pink Posh blog.

Congrats Happy Owl featuring Pretty Pink Posh

How's your day going so far? I'm loving all the sun we're getting here right now, it's a beautiful break from the rain!
I'm stopping in to share a quick card with you today!
I used the very sweet Happy Owls stamp set to make a sweet and simple wedding card.

I started with a white card panel and used the Scallop Borders 2 die on the bottom and did some soft ink blending of a light pink ink on the bottom. I stamped my adorable little bride and groom owls on seperate white cardstock, colored with Copic markers and cut out using the coordinating dies to adhere onto my card. I scattered some Sparkling Clear confetti around and added my panel onto a fog card base.

That's it for my quick card today!!
Thank you so very much for stopping in!
Hope you have a great day!

CAS Happy Turkey Day

Hi Crafty Friends!
Stopping in to share an autumn/ Thanksgiving card.
Its a fairly clean and simple card but I love white backgrounds with some sort of interest to it with color on top!

Starting with my background, I used an A2 sized white card base and I used the Stitched Foliage dies to completely cover the background. I used white card stock and cut the die cuts multiple times and adhered them in place onto my background.

I kept one pumpkin die cut aside and stamped my sentiment from the Happy Turkey stamp set with Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I stamped the leaves from the set on white card stock with the same process, and cut out using the coordinating dies. I ink blended some Distress ink over top until I liked the colors of the images and adhered them unto my card!
I added some bakers twine to the top and that finished my card!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hope you have a lovely day!

Vellum Shaker card featuring Angel Friends from PPP

I'm stopping in to share a vellum shaker card with you today featuring the very sweet Angel Friends stamp set and coordinating dies from Pretty Pink Posh.
I love these sweet angels so much and they were fun to color!

I created a shaker card with vellum instead of acetate which is the exact same process as a normal shaker card but I wanted a softer look.
For my background behind my shaker i stamped some trees from the Holiday Pals stamp set and used the new Marshmallow Confetti Mix and Metallic Silver Confetti Mix  for my shaker elements. I used the Stitches Notes frame die for the frame to my card and adhered the vellum on the inside.
For my 'snow hills' I used 2 dies from the Scallop Borders Die.
I stamped my trees from the Holiday Pals stamp set and my Angels on separate white card stock colored in with Copic markers and cut out using the coordinating dies.

I adhered them all on top on my card, added some white gel pen on my trees and some Wink of Stella glitter pen under the trees and angels on the snow to finish off my card.
That finishes my shaker card for today!
Thank you for dropping in!

Stitched Foliage Fall Cards featuring PPP

Hope your all having a lovely day so far!
I have a couple of fall cards to with you today featuring some of the new products from the recent release from Pretty Pink Posh.
My cards are generally the same, just with different colors. I used the new Stitched Foliage dies and the sentiments are from the Giving Thanks stamp set from last year.

I cut my leaves and pumpkin from white cardstock and ink blended Distress ink on each. I adhered them in 2 clusters and circled some twine thread behind them and adhered some fun foam behind them for dimension before adhering onto my cards.

I used white cardstock as my base and white heat embossed my sentiment onto fog card stock and used Metallic Gold confetti mix to finish off this card.

For this card I used a Fog card base and stamped my sentiment with black ink onto white card stock and finished off with Metallic Silver confetti mix.

That's it for my cards today!
Thank you so much for stopping by.

Happy Harvest Card featuring Lawn Fawn

I have started created my seasonal and Holiday cards! Yay!
I have a Thanksgiving/Autumn card to share with you today featuring the Happy Harvest stamp set from Lawn Fawn.

I used a pattern piece of paper and used the Scallop Rectangle die from Pretty Pink Posh to cut a rectangle out in the center I used the same die to cut out the frame piece in white. I adhered both onto a Fog card base in laying both into each other.
I stamped all my images from the set onto white card stock and colored in with Copic markers. I fussy cut them out and adhered onto my card. I adhered the larger pumpkin on the side of the wagon with some foam tape, to give some images dimension. I did the same with the sentiment.
I added some gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to finish my card off!
That's it for my card!
Hope you enjoyed!
Thank you so much for dropping in!
