Instagram Hop with Pretty Pink Posh

 Hello crafty friends! We are celebrating the Pretty Pink Posh September2021 release with a fun  two day Instagram Hop! This amazing release is chalk full of  Fall products that are sure to inspire.

I used a combination of brand new products to create these Fall projects.

To begin, I stamped. colored with Copic markers, and die cut images from the following sets:

Copic Colors Used:
Orange: YR18, YR14, YR15, YR21
Rust: YR27, YR24, YR21, YR20
Yellow: Y26, Y23, Y21
Pink: R32, R20, R11, R00
Brown: E25, E23, E31, E30/ E44, E43, E42
Fox: E17, E15, E13, E11/W1, W00


To create my first card, I began by cutting a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock to 5 1/4" square. Using the new Leaves Background Stencil, I blended Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks, making sure to keep the center light and darker around the edges. I then cut a 5 inch square piece of vellum and attached it to the background to soften and mute the colors. Next, I arranged the die cut leaves from the Falling Leaves Stamp Set into a wreath and added the sweet little fox from the Pumpkin Patch Critters Stamp Set. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in chocolate brown ink , then white heat embossed "greetings" onto a chocolate brown cardstock strip and placed it in the center of the wreath as a focal point. I then mounted my card onto a 5 1/2" square white cardstock base to complete my card.



To create the slimline card, I cut a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock to 3 1/4 X 8 1/4" and created the stenciled background using the Leaves Background Stencil and ink blending Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks. I then cut a piece of vellum 3 X 8" and attached it to the background. Next, I attached the Fall Circles to white scalloped circles using the Fall Circles Coordinating Dies. I lined them up and attached them to my card using foam tape for dimension. Lastly, I stamped the sentiments from Falling Leaves and Woodland Thanks exactly as I did on my first card, then attached the background to a 3 1/2 X 8 1/2" white cardstock card base to finish!

Please head over to Instagram to participate in the IG hop and leave a comment on each stop for a chance to win a @25 gift card to PPP each day of the hop. Happy Hopping!!

Chloe Number Dies with Sunny Studio

Hello! I'm over on the Sunny Studio blog sharing a fun set of Christmas tags, featuring the new Chloe Number Dies and the adorable new stamp set, Christmas Critters. This set may be my new favorite, and combined with the Chloe Number Dies, it's a fun way to make a custom keepsake tag!


To begin, I stamped the images from the Christmas Critters Stamps, colored with Copic markers, and then die cut with the Christmas Critters Dies

Copic Colors Used:

Cat: YR24, YR21, YR31, YR30, R20, R00
Dog: E29, E25, E23, E31, E50, N6, R20, R00
Red: R39, R27, R24, R14
Greens: YG67, YG17, G14, YG23, YG03, YG01
Aqua: BG49, BG13, BG11, BG10, G000


Next,  I created the tag using the Slimline Pennant Dies. Using the middle sized pennant, I cut 2 tag bases from the plaid paper using the brand new All Is Bright 6X6 Paper. I then used the smaller pennant die and cut 2 tags from Bristol smooth cardstock, then lightly inked the background with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink. I spattered a bit of Kitsch Flamingo ink onto the background for a bit of interest, then layered them onto the plaid background and cut the edges off to shorten the length of the tag.

I cut the red numbers from the All Is Bright 6X6 Paper  using the Chloe Number Dies and adhered to the tag, attaching the critters with the ornaments for the 0 with foam tape for dimension. I stamped the punny sentiments from Christmas Critters in black ink and added a couple of white Lacy Snowflakes to finish up my tags. Lastly, I punched a hole and strung some red and white bakers twine to complete my project!


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a sunny day, friends!

Hello Bluebird Day 2 Previews - Tree Neighbors

Hi there! Welcome to Day 2 of previews for the brand new Hello Bluebird  release, which will be available September 8th at 7pm MST. Today I'm featuring one of my favorite sets, Tree Neighbors...it's soo adorable, I can hardly stand it! I paired it with the brand new awesome High Rise Tree Scene Die. The possibilities are endless with this! I cant wait to create some holiday cards with this set and die!

For my card, I decided to go for an autumnal scene. To begin, I cut a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock to 3 1/2 X 8 1/2" and ink blended the background with Abandoned Coral, Dried Marigold, and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide inks, splattering some water onto the background for a bit of interest. Next, I die cut the tree from the High Rise Tree Scene Die using brown woodgrain paper. I ran the die through my die cut machine again, this time using white Bristol cardstock. I ink blended the leaves and grassy area with Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide inks. I adhered the frame (3 cut and stacked together) on top of my inked background, then attached the grass, and layered the tree over dark brown cardstock and attached with foam tape.

Next, I stamped the images from the Tree Neighbors stamp set, colored with Copic markers, and die cut with the Tree Neighbors die. Lastly, I arranged the critters and leaves onto my card, using foam tape for dimension, to complete the scene!

I hope you enjoyed the Day 2 previews! Head on over to the Hello Bluebird blog to see all of the items being previewed today and the awesome design team inspiration!

Hello friends! Welcome to the first day of previews for the new Hello Bluebird release, available September 8th at 7pm, MST. My card today is featuring the brand new stamp set called Park Play AND the much anticipated new Nesting Mini Slimline Dies! 


To begin, I cut Bristol smooth cardstock using the largest die from the Nesting Mini Slimline Dies. I lightly blended the background with Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass. Next, I cut the grass and trees using the Summer Woods Scene Die, which is so easy to modify to use on a mini slimline scene! I ink blended the grass and trees with Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide inks. I added some Rustic Wilderness ink to the edges to darken it up, then splattered some Peeled Paint, thinned with water, onto the grass and foliage to create some interest. Once I adhered the background scenery to the background, I cut a white frame using the Nesting Mini Slimline Dies and attached it using foam tape for dimension.


Next, I stamped the images from Park Play, colored with Copic markers, and die cut with the Park Play Dies. I stamped the sentiment in black ink then attached the colored images to my card using foam tape to complete my card!

Forest Trees Stencils with Sunny Studio

Hello! Today I am over on the Sunny Studio blog with a Christmas card featuring the brand new, Forest Tree Stencils. I love that it has 3 stencils that layer perfectly to create the look of a lush forest, or you can use them individually to create a single row of fir trees! 


To begin, I cut an A2 piece of Bristol smooth cardstock and ink blended the top with Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans, and Stormy Sky Distress Oxide inks. Next, I placed the Forest Trees Stencils and ink blended Pine Needles, Evergreen Bough, and Picket Fence Distress Oxides to create the forest background. I then splattered some water onto the top part of the inked panel, then added some white acrylic paint onto the entire background to give it the look of fresh fallen snow.


Next, I stamped, colored with Copic markers, and die cut the images from the following sets:


I attached the stamped images to the background using foam tape for dimension.


To complete my card, I die cut white cardstock using the Fancy Frames Rectangle Dies and attached to my card to frame the scene. Lastly, I white heat embossed the sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock to finish!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fantastic weekend!

Hugs, 

Tammy
