Holiday Envelopes with Pretty Pink Posh

Hello friends! Tammy here with a sneak peek of the new Holiday Envelopes Stamp Set. This adorable set features two different envelope images, along with some fun sentiments and coordinating dies.


To begin, I stamped out the snowflake envelope, colored with Copic markers, and die cut it with the Holiday Envelopes Coordinating Dies. I added some fine white glitter to the snowflakes to add a touch of shimmer. Next, I stamped the penguins from Penguin Pals, coloring them with Copic markers before die cutting with the Penguin Pal Coordinating Dies.

Next, I ink blended a die cut rectangle with Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide inks. I placed the new Layered Snowflake Stencils  over the inked background and lightly inked some white pigment ink to create the subtle snowflake background. I then splattered some white acrylic paint (thinned with water) onto the stenciled background to add interest.


Next, I attached the inked rectangle onto striped patterned paper. I adhered the snowflake envelope image onto the background, then stacked the penguins on top of each other, attaching with foam tape for dimension. The sentiment was white heat embossed onto red cardstock sentiment strip, die cut from the Holiday Envelopes Coordinating Dies and attached with foam tape. Lastly, I added some white  snowflake embellishments from the new Winter Snowflake Clay Confetti to add a finishing touch!

I hope you enjoyed today's sneak peek! Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs,
Tammy

Hi friends and welcome to Day 2 of Previews for the Hello Bluebird Holiday Release, which will be available for purchase tomorrow, October 23rd at 7PM MST!

Today I am showcasing the adorable new 'Penguins on Ice' stamp set and the new 'Ice Skating Pond Horizontal Scene Die'. I absolutely adore these penguins and their sweet faces and had so much fun creating this icy wonderland!!

To begin, I die cut Bristol smooth cardstock using the new Ice Skating Pond Horizontal Scene Die. I ink blended the background with Pine Needles and Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide inks. The snowy hills were lightly inked with Evergreen Bough and Tumbled Glass, and the birch trees were inked with Tea Dye ink, then I dabbed on some Snow Tex to add snowy texture to the trees, then sprinkled some glitter onto it before it dried.

I then stamped the images from Penguins on Ice and colored them with the following Copic colors:

Black - C7, C5, C3
White - C3, C1, C00
Red - E89, E46, E27, E35
Mint - G02, G00, G000


I arranged the penguins onto my card, attaching with foam tape for dimension. I added some white snowflakes die cut using the Frosty Flakes Die, then white heat embossed the sentiment onto a charcoal gray sentiment strip to complete my card!

Pretty Pink Posh - October Release Blog Hop

Hello friends! I'm so excited to be joining in on the blog hop to celebrate the Pretty Pink Posh October Release!  The brand new release is available now, and it's full of gorgeous holiday products!!  Be sure to read to the bottom of my post for info on the giveaway and links to today's blog hop participants!


For my blog hop project I created a fun set of tags, combining some brand new products with older products, the perfect touch for your holiday packages!


To create the tags, I began by stamping four wreaths from the Pine Wreath stamp set using a pine green ink. I stamped the wreath accessories with black Copic compatible ink and colored them with Copic markers. I then cut all the images with the Pine Wreath Coordinating Dies. I then cut four wreaths from heavy white cardstock and attached them to the back of the stamped wreaths to give my tags extra stability.


Next, I stamped out the adorable images from the Holiday Signs stamp set, colored with Copic markrs, and die cut with the Holiday Signs coordinating dies. I then attached the Holiday Signs images to the bottom center of each pine wreath using foam tape, then "decorated" the wreaths with the cute ornaments and bows.


To complete the tags, I punched a small hole at the top of the wreath and threaded some red and white bakers twine for the perfect touch!

GIVEAWAY

There are 3 $30 gift certificates up for grabs (one winner each day). Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop. Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PST on 10/24/2022. Winners will be announced on the PPP blog.
