Hello, crafty friends!  I have a mini slimline Valentine's card to share with you all today, using Pretty Pink Posh stamps and dies. I see a lot of us are trying the new mini slimline size cards... and so far, I am loving this smaller version of the slimline card. The size of my card is 3.25" x 6.25". To make the card, I've cut a 110lb Neenah cardstock in white to 6.25" x 6.5" scored at the 3.25" mark. Ok, let's begin! I first made a panel, slightly smaller than my card, using the scallop border from Stitched Borders 1 Die and the straight border from Stitched Borders 2 . I then added color to the background using Distress Oxide inks in Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar, and Antique Linen splattered with black and rose gold acrylic paints. Next, I stamped the LOVE from the Love Stamp Set  and the adorable hedgehogs from the Hedgehog Friends . I colored the images with Copic Markers in R32/30/24/22/20, BG10, E77/74/71/70/11/00/000, YG23/21. This card size i

Pretty Pink Posh - Valentine's Day Cards

  Hello, crafty friends!   Today, I am sharing 2 Valentine’s cards using products from the Pretty Pink Posh January release.  First, I made a slimline shaker card. I love that PPP now offers slimline dies, as this card size is still very popular. I took the first 2 large dies from the Slimline Peekaboo Windows die set and cut a frame in white cardstock.  For the back panel, I cut a 3.25” x 8.25” cardstock and used the new Lattice stencil in Faded Jeans distressed oxide.  I then stamped the scalloped heart from the Valentine Hearts stamp set 5 times and colored with Copic Markers in R35/37/39, B93/91. I turned them into heart balloons by adding strings. Next, I adhered them to the acetate using foam tape. To make a well for the shaker card, I lined the frame with foam tape and also added foam tape behind the heart balloons so that some of the gems would stay in the top part of the card. The gems I used is Sweetheart Rhinestones . I then stamped the word “Love” from the Valentine H

Pretty Pink Posh - Party Days

  Hello friends!   Today, I am sharing a birthday slimline card using new items from Pretty Pink Posh .  First, I cut a 3.5” x 8.5” panel in white cardstock and used the Wide Stripes Stencil   and brushed with distress oxides in Picked Raspberry, Antique Linen, and Spiced Marmalade. I then cut a slightly smaller panel and used the Layered Confetti Stencils using the same inks above. Next, I die cut a pink cardstock using the larger die from the Slimline: Scallop Frames Die Set and glued on the panel with the Confetti print.  Next, I stamped images from the Party Days stamp set , colored with Copic markers, and cut with the coordinating dies . I backed them with yellow cardstock cut using the scallop square from the same die set.  I then heat embossed the sentiments from the Let's Party stamp set in white onto black cardstock that I cut using the Simple Strips die . Lastly, I adhered the panels onto my slimline card and foam mounted the images for added dimension.  I hope yo
