Jungle Additions Stamp Set - Pretty Pink Posh

 Hello, hello! Today I have a slimline card to share. 

To start, I cut a white card panel to 3.25 x 8.5 inches. I then used the Medium Polka Dot Stencil to create a background. I wanted to make a mixed media background, which is not my usual style. However, the new Brave Stamp Set inspired me to be brave and try something new. With a sponge, I used distress oxides in Chipped Sapphire, Tumbled Glass, and Iced Spruce. For an effortless look, I intentionally did not line up the stencil perfectly and then splattered with black and gold acrylic paint. 

I chose to feature the adorable hippo and the leaves from Jungle Additions Stamp Set for this card. The stitched square that I used to stamp the sentiment onto is from Storybook 5 Dies. Dots and lines go together in design, so I added black strips using the new Simple Strips Dies. The strips are not long enough for a slimline, so I hid the edges behind the white square and other elements. 

Next, I arranged the stamped images and adhered onto the card. Some are foam mounted for dimension. I wanted to create a scene to show a little hippo hiding behind the bushes, afraid to come out because of a powerful wind gust, blowing the leaves in different directions. I just love the sentiments from the Brave stamp set. They are great to use for encouragement cards. 

For added texture, I stitched around the card with linen quilt thread. I realized that my panel was a quarter inch shorter than it’s supposed to be, so I adhered it onto a black cardstock before gluing it onto the card base. 

I hope you enjoyed today's card share. Happy crafting!

Pretty Pink Posh February 2023 Release Blog Hop

Hello friends! Welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh February 2023 Release Blog Hop and happy  9th birthday, PPP!  Today, I’m sharing a birthday card and a gift card holder that I made using dies and stencils from the new Birthday Release.  For my card, I started with an A2-sized white cardstock that I ink blended with Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide Ink. I sprayed some water for an oxidized effect and also splattered some white ink on it. I then took a scrap of white cardstock and used finger daubers to ink blend Distress Oxide Inks in rainbow colors. I used Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Lucky Clover, Salty Ocean, and Wilted Violet. I sprayed water, splattered white ink, and cut the rainbow colored panel with the WISH die. I also cut the flame from the Birthday Mug Addition Dies and ink blended it with Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink.  Next, I stamped the sentiments with black ink then foam mounted WISH and the flame on the card panel. I also added some pearls for inter

Hello friends! Welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh February 2023 Release Blog Hop! For my card, I started with a 4.5” square white cardstock and I ink blended through the Layered Carrots Stencil with Distress Oxide Inks.  Layer A: Dried Marigold Layer B: Spiced Marmalade Layer C: Twisted Citron I then matted this stenciled panel on a 5” square cardstock that I ink blended with Spiced Marmalade. For added interest, I sprayed this larger panel with water that has a bit of white ink.  Next, I cut the dies from the Winter Mug Dies and the new Easter Mug Additions Dies in white cardstock and colored them with Copic markers and Distress Oxide Inks. The blue bunny mug also got a print from the Mini Grid Stencil . Before foam mounting the mug, I placed a sheet of vellum to soften the carrot background and I also stamped the sentiment onto the vellum with Stazon ink.  Here are the Copic markers I used for the mini eggs: BG70, R00, V000, Y11, YG61, YR000 I embellished the card with Pi
