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 is easy to fill and I love that about it! I'm sure I will be making more!

Lastly, I heat embossed the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment on black cardstock and adhered all the elements down onto the card. And then adhered the panel to the card base. 

I hope you enjoyed today's card share! Will you be trying the new mini slimline size? Tag me on instagram @leica_crafts so that I can see your card! :)

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

Pretty Pink Posh March 2023 Release Blog Hop

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
