Mother's Day Card - Pretty Pink Posh

Hello, crafty friends! It’s Leica here today with a mini slimline Mother’s Day card. 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!

To start, I’ve cut a panel in white cardstock to 3x6 inches. I then ink blended with Milled Lavender and Antique Linen distress oxide inks. I sprayed some water to create the oxidized effect and I also splattered black and gold acrylic paints for added interest. Next, I added stitched details to the top of the panel using the straight stitched die from the Stitched Borders II dies. I then added scallop stitched details to the bottom of the panel using the scallop border die from the Stitched Borders I dies

Next, I stamped, colored, and cut the adorable hedgehogs from the Hedgehog Friends stamp set. I used Copic Sketch markers in E77/74/71/70/11/00/000. I also stamped, colored, and cut the MOM stamp from the Mom stamp set. I colored the M’s in Copic Sketch B41, R81/32/30, Y18/11, YG23/21, V15/12. 

I then cut a strip of black cardstock using the Simple Strips Dies and heat white embossed the Happy Mother’s Day sentiment from the Mom stamp.

I then adhered the stamped images with foam tape for dimension and the sentiment strip with liquid glue. Lastly, I adhered the panel onto the card base. 

Easy peasy! I hope you liked today’s card share! I love adding adorable critters to my Pretty Pink Posh cards, especially using them as a substitute for the vowels in the word stamps. By the way, I heard through the grapevine that there will be a Dad stamp set coming soon. Also, Elephant Friends stamp set and Monkey Friends stamp set have great images that can be used if you’d like to recreate my card. 

Have a great day, everyone! 


  1. All of your cards are so beautiful! I love your pastel palette and super crisp stamping. Which brand of black ink do you use when you're copic coloring?

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
