Pretty Pink Posh - March 2015 Release Blog Hop!

Hello Everyone,
You should have arrived from Leigh's blog.

For my first project I used the square die from the Stitched Banner Duo dies making the negative be the focal point and created a window for the Ellies from Wplus9 Unforgettable stamp set.  

I first die-cut the square window, then drew my square pencil lines on a separate panel using the window panel as a guide. Once the square lines were drawn I then stamped Ellies to get their positions on the window.

Next, I started watercoloring the background on these window images then followed by watercoloring the Ellies.

For the image below, you can still see the pencil marks. I erased the pencil marks after the images became completely dry.

Next, I stamped the window panel using the stars from the same stamped set Wplus9 Unforgettable stamp set the sentiment "hope your birthday is Unforgettable" is also from the same set.

The sentiment was stamped using the new Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Labels 1 dies. I used the banner label die.

Next, I added all the sequins and seed beads from Pretty Pink Posh to create a shaker window for my card. The sequins I used Spring Flower Sequins Mix, 4mm Springtime Sequins Mix, 6mm Springtime Sequins, Lime Sorbet, Sparkling Clear, Summer Mix Sequins. I also used the seed beads in Silver Shimmer, Marshmallow, and Sparkling Clear.

On this card I also used the new Pretty Pink Posh Picket Fence Die, and Lawn Fawn grass die.

For my next card I used the new Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Banner Duo  dies. I used just the banner this time to created an image tag for my card.

Really simply to assemble card, I think it took me longer to color and fussy cut all the images. The monkey and the elephant are from the new Lawn Fawn Critters in the Jungle stamp set.

Next, to create a more fun look I cut a slit on the Ellie's trunk to insert one of the new Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Labels 1 dies as if the Ellie is holding the label tag.

To finish it off I added some PPP Sparkling Clear and Summer Mix Sequins.

I hope you enjoyed!

Sparkle & Shine Challenge!

Hello Everyone, I am participating on the new challenge called Sparkle & Shine Challenge.

For my card I created a clover with stamped flower image on it. If you know me, you know I cannot live without flowers LOL :). I incorporated the Wplus9 Pretty Peonies on my die-cut hearts made into a clover using the Wplus9 Clear Cut Stackers: Hearts.

To begin, I die-cut the hearts on a watercolor paper using the Wplus9 Clear Cut Stackers: Hearts.

Next, I stamped the Wplus9 Pretty Peonies on the watercolored die-cut hearts, then started watercoloring the hearts with Distress ink in Crushed Olive. 

Once the heart is dried, I then start coloring the flower with just the hint of green and yellows. I stem and the leaf is hand cut after coloring a piece of watercolor paper.

Next, I die-cut the bottom of the watercolor panel with Pretty Pink Posh using the Stitched Borders 2 dies the large stitched scallop. I then splattered some Distress ink in Crushed Olive after diluting it on my craft mat with water.

I then assembled all the pieces on my watercolor panel and added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins in Sparkling Clear and Lime Sorbet.

Once everything placed on the panel I adhered it on a Kraft card base and added the sentiment "are one of a kind" from Wplus9 Hand Lettered Thanks stamp set. I also added the "you" die-cut from Wplus9 Hand Lettered Thanks dies.

I hope you guys enjoyed!

Card Share - So Grateful

Hello Everyone, I am just sharing this card I made using the Wplus9 Birds & Branches Frame.
This is one of my favorite frame from Wplus9.

To begin, I started die-cutting the frame from a watercolor cardstock, and watercolored it including the birds. While it dries, I cut more of the frame 3 more times and stacked & glued them all together. 

Next, I cut a vellum panel same size as the frame panel and stamped the sentiment from Wplus9 Fanciful Feathers stamp set. The sentiment is stamped first with Versamark ink and then heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I then arranged it that the vellum panel is behind the frame and adhered on the card.

I hope you guys enjoyed!

Thank you so much for stopping by :)
Have a Wonderful Weekend!
