Valentine Theme Week with Pretty Pink Posh

 Hi friends! I'm excited to be joining in for Valentine Theme Week over at Pretty Pink Posh!  Love is in the air, and I have a couple of fun projects to share, using products from the new Valentine release.

**All items in the Valentine section are 15% during theme week!

To begin, I stamped the images from the Love Balloons stamp set, colored with Copic markers, and die cut with the coordinating dies.

Copic Colors Used:
Red: R46, R17, R05
Pinks: RV17, RV06, RV04, RV02, RV00
Squirrel: E25, E23, E31, E51, E50
Beaver: E47, E44, E43, E42, E40, E51, E50
Skunk: C7, C5, C3, C1, C00
Bunny: W4, W2, W1, W0, W00

For my first card, I created an infinity shaker card. To begin, I cut an A2 piece of Bristol smooth cardstock and lightly ink blended it with Picked Raspberry, Kitsch Flamingo, and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide inks. I then placed the Scattered Hearts Stencil over my inked background and blended Picked Raspberry and Kitsch Flamingo to create a subtle heart background. I then put the inked background into an A2 cello bag and filled it with Pink Hearts Clay Confetti, White Hearts Clay Confetti, and Be Mine Clay Confetti, then sealed it up. 

Next, I die cut a white cloud border using the Stitched Borders 2 Dies, trimmed it to fit, stamped my sentiment, and attached it to the front of my shaker. Lastly, I arranged the colored images onto my card and attached them using foam tape, then attached the shaker to a white A2 card case using strong adhesive.

For my next card, I created a simple heart shaker card using the adorable images from the Love Balloons stamp set. I started by cutting an A2 card base using hot pink cardstock. Next, I cut a smaller white rectangle, then cut a heart opening using the All My Love Coordinating Dies. I inked a panel of Bristol cardstock using Kitsch Flamingo and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide inks, and then lightly stenciled some hearts with Kitsch Flamingo using the Scattered Hearts Stencil. I attached a piece of acetate to cover the heart opening and lined the back of the panel with foam tape. I sprinkled Pink Hearts Clay ConfettiWhite Hearts Clay Confetti, and Be Mine Clay Confetti onto the inked background and attached the white panel to the hot pink cardstock to create the shaker.

Lastly, I attached the stamped images to my card using foam tape for dimension and stamped the sentiment in black ink to complete my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope I inspired you to create something fun for Valentine's Day!!

Big hugs,

Pretty Pink Posh January 2022 Release Blog Hop

Hello friends! I'm so excited to be joining in on the blog hop to celebrate the Pretty Pink Posh January 2022 release! The brand new Valentine release is available now and it is amazing! 

If you're following along with the blog hop, you should have arrived here from the Pretty Pink Posh blog. Make sure to read to the bottom of my post for info on the giveaway and links to today's blog hop participants!

For my project, I created a fun shaker card and coordinating gift tags using the new Sending Love stamp set. This set is one of my favorites from the new release; it's just too adorable! 

To begin, I stamped images from  Sending Love, colored with Copic markers, and die cut with the Sending Love Coordinating Dies. Next, I cut an A2 piece of white cardstock and created an Air Mail border by alternating red, white, and blue strips of cardstock cut using the Simple Strips Dies. 

I then created the shaker by cutting 5 Scallop Frames from white cardstock. I stacked, then glued, 4 frames together and attached to my inked background (Blueprint Sketch, Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar, and Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide inks). Next, I generously sprinkled the new Love Letters Clay Confetti onto the background and sealed it up with another Scallop Frame backed with acetate. I attached the rectangle shaker to the striped background and added the stamped images onto the front, attaching some with foam tape for dimension. Lastly, I white heat embossed the sentiment onto a black cardstock strip and attached it to my card front to complete it!

Since I had to use all of the adorable critters from the Sending Love stamp set, I also created a couple of coordinating tags.

I started by die cutting Bristol smooth cardstock using the Scallop Square Tags Dies. i masked off the edges and ink blended the background using Blueprint Sketch, Kitsch Flamingo, and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide inks. I then splattered some water onto the background and some watered down ink to give it some interest. Next, I added the colored images from the Sending Love stamp set, attaching them with foam tape. The balloon was stamped from the Love Balloons stamp set and die cut using the Coordinating Dies. To finish my tags, I stamped the sentiment along the bottom with black ink and threaded some red and white bakers twine.
