Pretty Pink Posh Birthday Celebration Blog Hop

Hello friends!! Today I’m just so thrilled to be joining the celebrating going on over at Pretty Pink Posh for their 7th birthday!! To celebrate there’s a NEW release, a blog hop and several GIVEAWAYS!!

This release is just the sweetest!! Pretty Pink Posh always adds the most beautiful details to their products. Like all the tiny sweet little stitching details on their dies, or delicate and lacy floral stencils, to the itsy bitsiest images on their stamp sets!

My first card features the Peonies Stencil, All My Love Stamp Set and the Valentine Vines Die Set.

To create this card I first ink blended several flowers and the leaves onto a light pink card base with Distress Oxides (Mustard Seed, Worn Lipstick, Candied Apple, Mowed Lawn and Lucky Clover). I used small pieces of micropore tape to mask off the petals of already blended flower to add leaves or to layer additional flowers. Once I had finished ink blending the background I then die cut the front panel out of white cardstock using the Valentine Vines Die.

I then adhered the panel to the front of my card with foam adhesive. Next, I ink blended one more peony bud onto light pink cardstock and then fussy cut it out. I then stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the All My Love Stamp Set onto black cardstock. I then trimmed it down to a strip and adhered it and the flower bud to the card front.

My last card features the Layered Bokeh Stencils, Let’s Party Stamp Set and the Birthday Cake Die Set.

To create this card I first ink blended the background with one of the stencils (B) from the Layered Bokeh stencil set in several Distress Ink (Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass & Shaded Lilac) on the front of an A2 top-folding card base. Once I had finished ink blending I then used the stencil one last time with glitter gel to create glittery circles. Next, I die an A2 panel of white cardstock with the Birthday Cake Die.

I then die cut a scrap of glitter card stock with the same die, but making sure the paper was positioned behind the cake. I then inlaid the cake sections into the birthday cake panel and used some micropore tape the pieces in place. Next, I adhered the panel to the card front with foam adhesive. I then finished the card with a sentiment that I white heat-embossed from the Let’s Party Stamp Set onto light pink cardstock.

Rabbit Hole Designs & My Sweet Petunia Collaboration

Hello friends!! Today I’m joining Rabbit Hole Designs and My Sweet Petunia in a fun collaboration!! And to top it off both companies are giving away a $50 certificate!!

I had so much fun creating today’s birthday themed projects with some of the brand new products from Rabbit Hole Designs!! These new products were just screaming pastel rainbow, so how could I resist!!

Let’s start with the ink blended heart card. To create this card, I positioned the Open Heart Stencil over a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ panel of white cardstock. I then ink blended over the panel with several Distress Oxides (Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass, & Shaded Lilac).

I then stamped a sentiment with the Scripty Happy Birthday and Sassy Birthday 2 Stamp Set in Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I then finished the card by adhering the panel onto an A2 top-folding white card base.

For my second card, I first stamped the cake from the NEW Just Cake Stamp Set onto Bristol paper in Fadeout Ink. I then no-line watercolored the image in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens (723, 933, 062, 243, 553, & 603). When I had finished coloring the image I then fussy cut it out and then glitter gel to some of the frosting.

Next, I adhered an 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel of white cardstock to the front of an A2 top-folding white card base and then stamped a sentiment from the Sassy Birthday 2 Stamp Set. Lastly I finished the card by adhering the cake with foam tape to the card front.

Waffle Flower Crafts January Release and Blog Hop

Hello friends!! It’s time for another Waffle Flower Crafts release!! This release is just so pretty and cheery you just can’t help but smile!

I mean just look at those beautiful card samples!!! So with out further ado lets dive into some of the projects I created with this release!!!

First up is a card I created with the very handy Heart Balloons Stencil Duo and the Oversized Heart Combo Set.

To create this card I first ink blended the balloon hearts with several Distress Inks onto the front of an A2 top-folding white card base. Next, I ink blended the clouds with Tumble Glass Distress Ink and a mask I created out of contact paper with the Scenery Die, being careful to avoid blending over the balloons.

When I had finished with the clouds, I then repositioned the balloon stencil and then applied glitter paste over the balloons and sit aside to dry.

Next, I die cut two “heart’s” out of white cardstock and one out of white glitter cardstock and then adhered them together. I then stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment onto gray cardstock then trimmed it down to create a thin strip. Lastly I finished the card by adhering “heart” and the sentiment strip to the dry card front.

My next card features the absolutely beautiful Love Letter Stencil Trio and the Love Letter Combo.

To create this card I first stamped the main image from the Love Letter Stamp Set in black ink onto white cardstock. I then ink blended the different sections of the image with the Love Letter Stencil Trio and several Distress Inks.

When I finished ink blending the image, I then die cut it out with the matching die. Next, stamped all the sentiments onto a scrap of white cardstock and then die cut them out with the matching die.

Lastly, I finished the card by adhering the image and sentiment to a light pink card base with foam adhesive.

My last card features the very pretty Stencil-n-Stamp: Rose Bouquet Stamp and matching die.

To create this card I first stamped the leaves/bag image from the stamp set in black ink. Then with the stencils I then ink blended the images in with Distress Oxides.

Next, I used the stencils to ink blend the base for the bouquet of flowers and the bow. When I finished ink blending I then stamped the detail layer for the flowers.

Next, I die cut all the images out with the matching dies. I then stamped a sentiment from the set onto the front of an A2 top-folding Kraft card base and then finished the card by adhering all the images in with foam tape.

Spellbinders December Large Die of the Month

Spellbinders December Large Die of the Month

Hello friends!! Today I’m sharing a card I created with Spellbinders’ new Large Die of the Month. Spellbinders always comes up with some pretty creative and ingenious die sets and this month’s set is no different!! This month’s set allows you to easily create an interactive card with a moveable curtain! The beautiful drapes and folds of the curtain instantly made me think of ballet and which in turn inspired me to create a Nutcracker themed card!

To create this card I first, I die cut all the curtains out of red cardstock. I then ink blended them with Barn Door and Fired Brick Distress Ink. Next I adhered the top curtain pieces together and then the side pieces together. Next, I die cut a Christmas tree with last month’s die set out of white cardstock. I then stitched the die cut with green and gold floss, then adhered gems, and lastly finished the tree by inlaying a mirrored gold cardstock star with washi tape. Next, I die cut an A2 white panel with track die which allows the curtains to open and close about 1/4″ from the top of the panel. I then hand cut an opening approximately 3 1/8″ x 3 3/8″ in the panel with a craft knife. Next, I die cut the poles and pull tab mechanisms for the curtains out of white and mirrored gold cardstock. I then folded and assembled the pull tab mechanisms around the die cut track in the panel and adhered the folds shut. I then adhered the gold poles on top and then my side curtains on top of that. Next, I added foam adhesive to the very top of my top curtains and then adhered them to the panel. I then ink blended the front of an A2 top-folding card base turned on its side in Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch, and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide. I then splattered the card front with white Gansai Tambi paint and then adhered a strip of yellow cardstock to the bottom. I then finished the card by adhereing the white panel with the curtain to the card front with foam adhesive and then adhered the tree with liquid glue.

I hope you enjoyed my card!! Thank you so much for stopping by!

Pinkfresh Studio December 2020 Stencil & Die Release Blog Hop

Pinkfresh Studio December 2020 Stencil & Die Release Blog Hop

Hello friends!! It’s time for a new Pinkfresh Studio release!! Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, they have gone and done it again with another incredible release!! This month’s release features a ton of beautiful new stencils and dies that you are sure to have a hard time picking a favorite.

My first card highlights the stunning and brilliant Seamless Floral Panel Stencil.

To create this card ink blended over the base leaf layer from the Seamless Floral Panel Stencil set with Aquamarine and Tidal Pond onto an A2 panel of light pink cardstock. I then ink blended over the smaller flower stencil with Coral Reef and Passion Fruit to create pink flowers. I then ink blended over the large flower stencil with Apricot and Clementine to create the orange flowers. Next, I ink blended the center of the flowers with Persimmon and the remaining petals on this stencil with either my pink or orange flower combo.

I then dried my panel throughly with heat gun, applied anti-static powder it, and then ink blended with Versamark Ink over the stencil for the leaf veins. I then poured gold embossing powder over my panel and then heat set with my heat tool. Next I trimmed my panel down 1/8″ on both vertical sides of my panel and then adhered it onto an A2 top-folding white card base.

Next, I die cut three “sending” out of white cardstock using the Phrase Builder: Sending Die set. I then pressed my Versamark ink pad over the bottom half of one of the “sending” and then gold heat embossed it. Next, I adhered all the “sending” together with the embossed one on top and then adhered it to my card front. I then created my sub-sentiment by stamping and gold heat embossing a sentiment from the Floral Vase Stamp Set onto a scrap of mirrored gold cardstock. I trimmed the sentiment down to a strip and then finished my card by adhering it to my card front.

My next card features the super useful Cloud Builder Stencil!

To create this card I first, ink blended the cloudy background using the Cloud Builder Stencil and Ocean Breeze ink over the front of a white slimline card base. I then die cut the letters to spell “rainbow” out of white cardstock and white craft foam using Lea’s Ornate Lowercase Die Set.

I then removed the outline and then ink blended over the cardstock letters with several dye inks (Coral Reef, Apricot, Lemon Whip, Key Lime, Meadow, Summer Shower, and Soft Lilac). Next, I placed the outlines back around the letters positioned them over my card front, picked them up with a long strip of tape when I got them in a good position and then adhered the foam letters to the backside.

I then stamped my sub-sentiment with using the Simply Sentiment: Hello stamp set in Rocky Slope. I then finished the card by adhering my “rainbow” to the card front.

And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed my cards! Be sure to check out the hop link and giveaway info below. 🙂

Waffle Flower Crafts December Release and Blog Hop

Waffle Flower Crafts December Release and Blog Hop

Hello friends!! Over at Waffle Flower Crafts we are celebrating the new December release with a fun blog hop and giveaway!!

I have several cards to share so let’s dive right on in!! I’ll start off with a card featuring the new Infinite Triangles Stencil, Bold Alpha Die, and New Beginning Stamp Set.

To create this card I first created the rainbow triangle row by ink blending with several Distress Ink (Picked Raspberry, Barn Door, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn & Peacock Feathers) over the Infinite Triangles Stencil and sliding the stencil down a little between each color onto a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ panel of white cardstock.

I then adhered the panel onto the front on an A2 top-folding black card base. Next, I die cut a black cardstock square made with the Nesting Squares Die Set with the numbers from the Bold Alpha Die Set. I then stamped and gold heat embossed a sentiment from the New Beginning Stamp Set. I then finished the card by adhering the sentiment to the card front with foam adhesive.

My next card features the beautiful new Slimline Angled Panel Die, the Sentiment Additions Stamp Set and the Bold Alpha Die Set.

To create this card I first ink blended the front of a white slimline card base with Worn Lipstick, Squeezed Lemonade, Cracked Pistachio, Salty Ocean, and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxides. Once I finished ink blended I then added water spots and then set the card aside to dry. Next, I die cut a white slimline panel with Slimline Angled Panel Die and then adhered a panel of acetate behind it. Next, I added foam adhesive to the card front to create a well, then filled the well with sequins, and topped it off with the angled panel.

I then die cut “CELEBRATE” twice with the Bold Alpha Die Set out of white cardstock and adhered the letters together. Next, I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Sentiment Additions Stamp Set onto gray cardstock and then die cut out with the matching die. Lastly, I finished the card by adhering the sentiments to my card front.

My next card is also a slimline card and features the beautiful Tender Blooms Stamp Set and the Slimline Stripes Die.

For this card I first stamped the main floral image from the Tender Blooms Stamp Set a couple of times in black onto a white slimline panel. I then die cut the panel with the Slimline Stripes Die and then ink blended the different sections with distress inks (Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Festive Berries, Picked Raspberries, and Wilted Violet).

I then colored the flowers tone-on-tone with copics to added shape to the flowers and used grays to add shadows and make everything pop away from the background. I then adhered the stripes to the front of a slimline card base and then stamped a sentiment and die cut it out with the matching dies. I then finished the card by adhering the sentiment to the card front.

My last card features the New Beginning Stencil & Stamp Combo and the Tender Thoughts Stamp Set.

To create this card I first taped off the bottom portion of a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ panel of white cardstock and then ink blended Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide and a little bit of Mustard Seed. Next, I placed the sunset stencil and sun stencil over the panel and then ink blended with Mustard Seed, Worn Lipstick and Dusty Concord. I then removed the tape, masked off the sky and then ink blended the ocean with a little Squeezed Lemonade and a little Peacock Feathers.

I then placed the water reflection stencil down and ink blended with more Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch. Next, I added some texture to with ocean with a damp chamois and then removed the tape. I then adhered the panel to the front of an A2 top-folding card base and then finished the card by stamping the birds and a sentiment from the Tender Thoughts Stamp Set in black.

I hope you enjoyed my cards!! Be sure to check out the rest of the hop so you don’t miss any of the awesome inspiration!!
