PPP - January Birthday Celebration 2016!


Happy Birthday Pretty Pink Posh!
Welcome to the 2nd day Celebration Everyone :)




To begin my first project, I cut an A2 card based using watercolor paper and watercolor the front, let it dry and die-cut the Stitched Tab dies using a cream strip of cardstock.



Next, I stamped the sentiment using the Wplus9 Happy Mail stamp set on top of the card base, as well as the butterfly trail and the butterfly from the set.



For the Stitched Tab dies  I also used the same Wplus9 Happy Mail  stamp set and adhered some black and white stripe patterned paper.

To finish off the card I added the otter I drew fussy cut and adhered on card and finished off with the Pretty Pink Posh sequin, Lemon Drop, Aquamarine, Ocean Spray, and Sparkling Clear.






For my second project, I used the Scallop Square dies the small version to create my focal background. I also used the Wplus9 Happy Mail stamp and its Happy Mail Coordinating dies.




I first distress the white cardstock with Distress inks then die-cut using the smaller Square from Scallop Square dies, then added a foam tape to put dimension on the scallop square.



After watercoloring the Happy Mail images I die-cuts and adhered with foam tape for dimensions. To finish off the card I also added the Silver Mini Star Confetti using the Multi Medium Matte to adhered the tiny stars.









I hope you guys enjoyed!
Have an Awesome day Hopping :)
