Pretty Pink Posh Turns 2!!


I'm thrilled to be celebrating Pretty Pink Posh's 2nd birthday.  I'm so happy for Paulina for all of her successes over the past two years.  I can't wait to see where she is two years from now!

I have two cards to share today using Pretty Pink Posh goodies.  My first card features the gorgeous  Scallop Frames die, as well as some oldies but goodies ;)


Pretty Pink Posh Products Used:
Scallop Frame Die, Stitched Labels 1, 4mm Clear Droplets & Raspberry Sequins
  • Start by die cutting the scallop frame from a piece of white card stock.
  • Next trim a piece of white card stock just slightly smaller than 4 x 5 inches, to be placed behind the frame.   
  • Using a Blending tool, lightly add Picked Raspberry Distress Ink to the stencil to create a faded stenciled background. 
  • Stamp the flower stem and sentiment in black ink on the stenciled piece.
  • Adhere the frame to the stenciled piece with liquid glue.
  • Stamp the flower images on white scrap paper and sponge with Distress Inks, then die cut.  Add to the card using foam tape or dimensionals.
  • Die cut the border from the Stitched Borders 2 die from black cardstock and adhere it to the bottom of the frame.
  • Embellish the design with die cuts, sequins and droplets.

I went a bit more simplistic with this next card.  


Pretty Pink Posh Products Used:
Stitched Banner Duo, Twine & Bows Die & 4mm Classic Christmas Sequin Mix
 
These two products are some of my very favorite in the PPP line.  Just add some stamping to these beauties and you can get a CAS card done quickly and easily.  I love that the twine bow doesn't add bulk and makes for flat mailing.

That's it from me today! 


There are tons of prizes so make sure you leave comments as you hop along!

Jo - Jo's Scrap Shack said...

Your cards are stunning!!! I love how the first card fades out in toward the flower....How did you do that? How did you create a card that looks white on the outside edges but then coming in toward the flower and it has color? Thats an awesome technique! And your second card is just gorgeous! Love that bird! TFS!
Hugs,
Jo

Gabbylou@live.com said...

Your cards are simply fabulous!! So adorable!!! You just whip them right up. I am trying to get the word out so I don't mean to be Debbie downer but I am the only volunteer at my local Women and Children in Crisis center. I am having chemo myself and buy all the supplies for the cards they make for the children with terminal cancer as well as trying to continue as a flight nurse. Going thru chemo myself I know what a sweet little card can mean on a gloomy day. They put so much thought and love into every detail which amazes me because these kids have nothing but donated clothing food etc. Having some inspiration and a coupon to buy some sequins and other things is a blessing. They broke my BigShot so thats my next purchase as I must carry everything home after our class but I know they will squeal with delight over being able to make fun cards and I truly appreciate your inspiration., I'm no Jmac or kwerner or any of you famous make it easy gals but your cards are fabulous!! God Bless!! Gabbylou@live.com
