Pretty Pink Posh and Altenew Blog Hop


Today Pretty Pink Posh and Altenew have collaborated for a special blog hop, with amazing prizes!
You should have arrived from Amy Wanford's blog but if not I will have a full list of the hop order at the bottom of my post!

For my card I used the Birch Land and Pine Tree stamp sets from Altenew with the Scallop Circles die and Winter Sparkle Mix sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
I stamped all my images first before masking them off and ink blending a few different colors for my sky. I colored the images that needed coloring with Copic markers (the trees Pine Trees did not need coloring as they are a stamp layering stamp set) I then added some Silver Stickles along the top of bird house and a tad on the trees to make it look like sparkly snow.
I added my sentiment on a thin strip of card stock and adhered it behind my scallop circle before adding this on a Fog card base.
To finish off my card I scattered some Winter Sparkle sequins.

To celebrate the blog hop both Altenew and Pretty Pink Posh are offering %10 off in their shops by using the coupon codes below until October 30/16.

Happy Harvest Watercolor Card featuring Lawn Fawn

Happy Wednesday!

I have a fall card to share with you today!
It's definitely that time of year! Sweaters are out and there's pumpkin spice everywhere!

I created my card using the Happy Harvest stamp set from Lawn Fawn.
I started with water color paper to create my background. I wiped on some red and orange color with my Zig real brush markers and colored with a water brush, I also flicked on some splatters for more interest. I stamped my images on a separate piece of water color paper, again using my Zig real brush markers to color them in, I then fussy cut my images out leaving a small white border.
After adhering my images where I wanted them I stamped my sentiment and adhered my panel onto a white card base that I ran through my cuttlebug with an older embossing folder from Stampin up (I believe) for a little bit of texture in the background.

That's it for my card today! Hope you enjoyed!
Thank you so much for popping in today!!

Pretty Pink Posh October Release Bog Hop

Hello Crafty Friends!!

Today is day 2 of the Pretty Pink Posh October release blog hop!
You should have arrived from Heather Hoffman's blog but if not I will have a full list at the bottom.
I'm very much in love with the new adorable stamp sets and the sequin mixes are truly amazing!

 For my first creation I used the new Christmas Friends stamp set. I started off with a white A2 card base and did some ink blending with purple ink towards the bottom of my card, becoming lighter handed towards the top. I used the Scallop Borders die from the previous release as my snow hill. For my sweet characters and presents I stamped them on separate card stock, colored them in with Copic markers and cut out using the coordinating dies, then adhering them on my card base To finish my background up I stamped the tiny snow flakes in the set and then added the 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins and some sequins and the snowflakes from the Winter Sparkle Mix. I finished my card off by stamping my sentiment into the snow area. 

For my second creation I decided to make a shaker card. I used the new Stitched Pieces Die on some pattern paper to create my shaker element and filled with gorgeous new Holiday Shimmer Mix. I ran the stitches pieces die through my die cut machine once again with some white card stock to have an area for my sentiment which I stamped fro, the Holiday Greetings stamp set (which is not available for purchase,this is a gift you receive free if you purchase $100 or more!) I stamped my little snowman from the Happy Snowman set on white card stock and fussy cut him out to adhere on the bottom of my shaker element. To finish off my card I die cut some silver glitter paper with the Scallop border dies and added some snowflakes from the same Holiday Shimmer Mix.

If you spend $100 or more you will receive the lovely Holiday Greeting stamp set, while supplies last!

Thank you so much for hopping along with us!
There are 4 $25 gift certificates up for grabs (2 for each day of the hop) so make sure to leave comments along the way! Comments must be left by 11:59 PDT on October 20/2016. Winners will be announced on the Pretty Pink Posh Blog.

To a Charming Friend featuring My Favorite Thing's

Stopping in quickly today to share a card I created using the Magical Dragons stamp set by My Favorite Things.

I started off with a heavy weight white cardstock as I knew I wanted to color with Copics, I then stamped my tiny little dragon and then masked him off to stamp my larger dragon so I can have him riding on his back. I stamped my smoke clouds, then masking all my images so I could do some subtle ink blending for the background. After removing the masks I colored all my images with Copic markers.
I added some clouds to the bottom using the Puffy Cloud Borders from Lawn Fawn. 
I added my sweet sentiment onto my cloud and scattered on some sequins from PPP. I adhered my main panel onto a white card base and that finishes my card!

I'm working on creating all my baby shower cards right now but after that I will start to create my Holiday cards! Hope it's not too soon for you :P

Hope your having a lovely day!
