Happy Wednesday, crafty friends!
Welcome to the first day of the Pretty Pink Posh 5th Birthday Celebration (and January 2019 Release) Blog Hop – it lasts for 3 days!! You may be starting the hop here or coming from Thi Lam’s blog and seeing her beautiful cards, either way I hope you enjoy all the fabulous inspiration from the hop!
For my first card, I’m featuring Pinata Party Stamp Set, Cupcake Critters Stamp Set, and Decorative Tag 2 Dies. For my colourful background, I heat embossed cute images from the Pinata Party set on watercolour paper panel in white, inked up the panel with Picked Raspberry, Scattered Straw, Crushed Olive Distress inks, and then added a bit of watercolours.
I die cut arch window from a separate watercolour paper using the Decorative Tag 2 dies, then lightly inked on it with Antique Linen Distress ink. I decorated it with a few Valentine Jewels Mix.
We can open the window, it means we can add something of a surprise inside the window.
Ta-da!! Happy birthday to you! I stamped & watercoloured these cute birthday critters using the Cupcake Critters Stamp & Die Set.
I love the Decorative Tag 2 Dies so much – it’s my most favourite among entire January release products.
For my second card, I’m featuring Crocus Flowers Stamp Set and Scallop Hearts Dies. I stamped flowers & leaves from the Crocus Flowers set on watercolour paper panel using black dye ink – I used Post-It Notes for masking images. I then coloured all stamped images with Faber-Castell polychromos colored pencils.
I applied the Scallop Heart Die over the coloured images, then inlaid all pieces in place as shown in the picture. I decorated the Scallop Heart with small sized Valentine Jewels & Sugar Plum Jewels.
Pretty Pink Posh is giving away $25 gift certificates to those NINE people who comment during the blog hop. Plus, PPP is giving away a not-yet-released set for qualifying purchases (while supplies last)!
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a great day!
Keep smiling and be blessed. God bless you all.
