PPP July Product Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday!!
Welcome to the first day of the Pretty Pink Posh July 2017 Product Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from the Crystal Thompson’s blog you are on the right track.
I have two summer-themed cards to share with you today using the new Summer Friends stamp set along with other PPP products – I think some of you might already see these cards on the PPP blog before.
I started by stamping sandcastle, beach ball, bucket from the Summer Friends set on watercolour paper in black pigment ink. I then watercoloured them with Distress markers, die cut them with the Summer Friends coordinating dies. For the beach scene, I created clouds using the Stitched Borders 2 dies (I used the scallop border die as a stencil), sandy beach using Distress markers, then trimmed the paper down using stitched rectangle panel die in the Stitched Notes die set. For the sentiment, I used the Summer Friends and the Camping Friends stamp sets. I mounted the background panel on pale blue card base using double-sided tape first, and then added images on it using foam tape.
For my second card, I stamped all images from the Summer Friends set on watercolour paper in pigment black ink, then coloured them with Distress markers. Once the panel was completely dry, I die cut it with an A2 sized rectangle panel die. For the sentiment, I heat embossed it on blue card stock in white, then cut the small banner. I mounted the watercoloured panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the sentiment banner on the bottom right corner of the card front using foam tape.
GIVEAWAY!!
There are 4 $25 gift certificates up for grabs (two winners each day). Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop. Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PST on 7/18/2017. Winners will be announced on the PPP blog.

Altenew June 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Altenew June 2017 Release Blog Hop!! We are releasing 11 new stencils which will be available for purchase on Tuesday, June 13th. :) If you arrived here from Sandra Dietrich’s blog you are on the right track!

I made 2 watercolour flower cards using the new Mega Rose and the Layered Dahlia A stencils. If you can’t draw flowers by hand, using flower stencils can create impressively amazing results with very little skill!!To create the card, I laid the Mega Rose stencil over watercolour paper, taped it in place using washi tape, and then inked with Festive Berries Distress ink and mini ink blending tool. Once the panel was dry, I trimmed it down using an A2 sized rectangle panel die. I then added a little bit darker red colour, Fired Brick Distress ink, to the edge of each petal using water brush. For the sentiment, I stamped “thanks” from the Enchanted Iris set, other sentiment from the Layered Letters AFG set using pigment black ink. Finally, I mounted the panel on white card base using glue tape.

Here is another watercolour flower card with brand new stencil, the Layered Dahlia A & B set. I used the same way as the first card but using different colours. I used Tumbled Glass Distress ink on the base and then added Mowed Lawn, Mermaid Lagoon, and Faded Jeans Distress inks. For the sentiment, I stamped them from the Adore You set using pigment black ink.

SSS Cherished Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Cherished Release Blog Hop!! If you arrived here from Nina Marie Trapani’s blog you are on the right track!

Today I will be sharing with you my summer themed cards using brand new Summer Flowers Stamp Set, Circular Lace Stencil, and Wonky Rectangles Die Set.
As you can guess, my first card is watercolour flower card! :D I randomly stamped flowers and leaves from the Summer Flowers set on watercolour paper using VersaFine Vintage Sepia pigment ink, and then trimmed it down with the Wonky Rectangle panel die. I coloured them with Peerless watercolors and water brush. For the sentiment, I die cut the word “Delightful” from metal gold card stock five times, stacked them up using fine tip glue pen. Once the watercoloured panel was dry, I mounted it on an A2 sized top-folded kraft card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the sentiment die cut using fine tip glue pen.

For my second card, I used the Circular Lace stencil as my main supply. I laid the stencil over watercolour panel, and then inked with some Distress inks: Abandoned Coral, Scattered Straw, Crushed Olive, Victorian Velvet, and Cracked Pistachio. Once the inked panel was dry, I distressed all edges of the panel using Tim Holtz Paper Distresser.
For the sentiment, I used the Believe word die and the Believe stamp set. Around the sentiment, I added some vellum butterflies (from the Butterfly Drift die).

My last card is sunflower card. I heat embossed sunflowers from the Summer Flowers set on kraft panel in white, and then coloured them with Faber Castell polychromos pencils. For the sentiment, I used the Oh Happy Day stamp set.
GIVEAWAY!!
