PPP 7th Birthday Celebration Blog Hop – Day 1

Hello, hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the first day of the Pretty Pink Posh 7th Birthday Celebration Blog Hop. Pretty Pink Posh turned 7! Come join this 3 days celebration for fun, inspiration and surprises. Let’s start!!

For my first card, actually this is my first card in 2021, I’m featuring brand new Peonies stencil along with the With Love shaker die.

I laid the Peonies stencil on A2 sized watercolour paper panel in place first, and then applied Distress inks onto the paper panel – Tattered Rose & Fired Brick for flowers, Mowed Lawn & Crushed Olive for leaves. I added red ink splatters all over the floral panel. I die cut heart shaped “with love” sentiment from white cardstock using the With Love shaker die, then decorated the edge with the new Sweetheart Rhinestones.



For my second card, I made a fun birthday shaker card with the new Birthday Cake dies.

I die cut the Birthday Cake panel from thick white cardstock first, and then die cut it from pale grey cardstock again. I inked balloons & cakes with Distress inks, then inlaid all elements in place.

For the middle part of the cake, I adhered acetate sheet to the back of them, filled with Sweetheart Rhinestones, White Hearts Clay Confetti and Sparkling Clear Sequins.


For my last card for the hop, I made a slimline birthday card with the new Slimline Peekaboo Windows die set – it is my first slimline card!! :D

I die cut stitched 3.25″ x 8.25″ base panel from white cardstock using the Slimline Peekaboo Windows die set first, and then made 3 square windows to the centre of the panel. I made colourful bokeh background using the new Layered Bokeh stencils. On the centre of the card, I added Copic coloured monkeys and leaves for fun!

Here is a closer look:

PPP Layered Hearts Background

Hello, crafty friends. I have two Valentine’s Day & two birthday cards with the newly-released Layered Hearts Stencils today.
For my first card, I used the Layered Hearts stencils, Large Floral Hearts set, and Happy Valentine’s Day Script die.
I started by making pink hearts background with stencils. I laid Layer A over the 4.25 x 5.5″ watercolour paper panel in place, applied Tattered Rose Distress ink, Worn Lipstick over the Layer B using blender brush. I then smoothly inked Tattered Rose Distress ink all over the panel using mini round ink blending tool. I stamped heart-shaped floral wreath from the Large Floral Hearts set on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black, coloured with Altenew Artist markers, and then die cut it with the matching die. I die cut the Happy Valentine’s Day Script from white cardstock as well. I mounted the hearts background panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all elements using foam tape.

For my second Valentine’s Day card, I made a blue hearts background with Mermaid Lagoon & Faded Jeans Distress inks.
I stamped floral heart (from the Large Floral Hearts set), swans (from the Pond Friends set) on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black, coloured them with alcohol markers, and then die cut them with the matching dies.
Here is a yellow hearts background with Scattered Straw & Fossilized Amber Distress inks. I inked Scattered Straw over the Layer A, Fossilized Amber (vivid yellow) over the Layer B.
I die cut the Balloon Shaker from thick white, bow from glitter gold cardstock. I embellished with a few Buttercream Jewels.

My last card today is a shaker birthday card. I made a green hearts background with Crushed Olive & Cracked Pistachio Distress inks first. I then die cut the Scallop Rectangle Frame from white cardstock, adhered the acetate behind the frame, added lots of seed beads, clear sequins, and silver mini star confetti.
For the sentiment, I used the Happy Birthday To You Script die.
The new Layered Hearts Stencils are SO adorable!!

Pretty Pink Posh provides 15% off all Valentine’s Day products till Jan 26th.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful week.

PPP 6th Birthday Celebration Blog Hop

Hello, hello crafty friends, happy Monday.
Welcome to the first day of the Pretty Pink Posh 6th Birthday Celebration Blog Hop. Yes, Pretty Pink Posh turned 6! Come join this 3 days celebration for fun, inspiration and surprises!!
For my first card, I’m featuring the new Balloon Shaker die – it’s my most favourite among the entire January released products. For the background panel, I die cut stitched rectangle panel from red cardstock using the Stitched Notes die. I heat embossed the birthday borders with clear embossing powder, then added white pigment ink all over the panel.
I die cut the Balloon Shaker from white cardstock, I die cut a bow from the Twine and Bows die set from glitter gold cardstock. I mounted all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape, and then embellished with a few sparkling clear sequins mix.

Here is another fun birthday card using the Birthday Frame and the Happy Birthday to You Script dies. I started by die cutting the Birthday Frame from watercolour paper. I then inked some Distress inks to the Birthday Frame in rainbow order using blender brush. After inking up, I applied water to lighten colours.
Once the frame was dry, I adhered the acetate behind the frame – made a shaker window panel. I added sequins to the centre of the gray card – I used mini sparkling clear flowers, gold mini star confetti, 6mm sweetheart mix and sparkling clear mix sequins. I then covered the birthday frame over the card. For the sentiment, I die cut the Happy Birthday to You from white cardstock, then added it to the centre of the card (as shown in the picture) using foam tape.

Pretty Pink Posh is giving away 2 $50 gift certificates to random comments left on the different stops today! That’s right, we’re giving away a total of SIX $50 gift certificates during the three day celebration.

SSS STAMPtember®From All of Us

Happy STAMPtember, crafty friends!
Today I want to share with you my rainbow birthday balloon card using the Celebrate You & Critter Crowd Sets.
I started by stamping adorable critters from the Critter Crowd set on watercolour paper using Antique Linen Distress ink. I then coloured the stamped image with Distress markers & water brush. I die cut it with the matching die.
I die cut several balloons from watercolour paper using different sized balloon dies in the Celebrate You die set. I then made rainbow balloons with some SSS dye inks – I ink blended each balloon die cut using Picket Fence Blender Brush.
Red balloon: (light to dark) Lipstick Red & Merlot
Yellow balloon: Duckling & Clementine
Green balloon: Green Apple & Evergreen
Blue balloon: Audrey Blue & Soft Navy
Purple balloon: Lavender & Deep Purple
Before gluing rainbow balloons, I stamped strings from the Celebrate You set & the sentiment “from all of us” from the Critter Crowd set onto the card front using VersaFine Onyx Black. I then mounted the watercoloured critters & rainbow balloons onto the card using foam tape.
This sentiment string is so good for birthday balloon cards! :D
