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!
