Pine Trees Christmas - Pretty Pink Posh

Hello friends! Need a last-minute Christmas card? This one only took me a few minutes to make and you can even cut some time by using patterned paper for the background and trees. Let's get started! I first cut a white cardstock down to 4.75" square and ink blended it with Tattered Rose Distress Oxide Ink through the Pinstripe Stencil . I rotated the stencil and ink through it again with the same ink to make a gingham pattern. Next, I cut the trees from the Pine Trees Dies and ink blended it with Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide Ink. I sprayed some water for an oxidized effect and also splattered some white ink. The trunks are cut from brown cardstock. The largest tree is glued onto the center of the card panel and the two smaller trees are foam mounted for dimension.  Do you have any Pretty Pink Posh jewels? This is the perfect project to use some up. I've used the new Ruby Red Pearls for my trees - 6 mm for the large tree, 4 mm for the medium tree, and 3 mm for the smal

Winter Foliage Stencils - Pretty Pink Posh

  Hello and welcome! Today I have an elegant Christmas card, featuring the new Layered Winter Foliage Stencils. I just love me some PPP layered stencils! They make it so easy to create backgrounds for cards.  To begin, I ink blended through the Layered Winter Foliage Stencil in Distress Oxide Inks (Festive Berries, Gathered Twigs, Picked Raspberry) and Pigment Craft Co Inks (Lagoon and Juniper). I then cut this panel down to a 5” square and glued onto a pink card base. I also cut a 5” white cardstock and glued it inside the card base.  Next, I watercolor sheets of cardstock in shades of green and red. Once dry, I used the Winter Foliage Dies to cut the flowers and greenery for my little floral arrangement. I splattered some white paint before gluing it onto the card panel.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiments from the Holiday Sentiments onto strips of Kraft cardstock and foam mounted it on the card panel. Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you like today’s Christmas card s

Merry Christmas - Spellbinders

 Hello crafty friends! Here is a very simple yet elegant Christmas card with a sweet pink door. How I wish I can have a pink front door in real life!  The white panel is from Reverse Confetti (shop is now closed). I hot foiled the sentiment with gold foil , using the Spellbinders Glimmer machine.  I used my favorite pink cardstock and die cut the door from the Spellbinders Open House Door Base Etched Dies . The window panes, letter slot, and door knob are cut from Brushed Gold Cardstock . I then cut the wreath from the Open House Spring Etched Dies in light pink cardstock (from Michaels). The red berries and bow are from the Open House Topiary Etched Dies .  That's all for this CAS Christmas card. This one is easy to mass produce and perfect to mail to family and friends. I hope you'll give it a try!

Winter Mug - Pretty Pink Posh

  Hello crafty friends! Today I have a Christmas card featuring the latest dies from Pretty Pink Posh. I’ve used the Winter Foliage dies, Winter Mug dies,  and Merry & Bright Script for this square-shaped card.  I started by ink blending through the layer A of the Layered Christmas Lights Stencil in Pigment Craft Co Lagoon ink on a 5” panel. Next, I cut 2 marshmallows, the mug, and candy cane from the Winter Mug Dies and colored them with Copic markers.  Hot chocolate - E77/74/71 Marshmallows - W1/00 Mug - BG09/05/13/11 Candy Cane - R29/27/24 I glued the mug directly onto the card panel and added a small cluster of florals cut using the Winter Foliage. For the sentiment, I cut the “merry” from the Merry & Bright Script   in pink glitter cardstock and a few times in white cardstock for dimension. I then stamped out “Christmas” on a strip of Kraft cardstock and foam mounted it onto the card panel. I glued some gold pearls on the center of the flowers and added some Ruby Red

Merry Christmas - Pretty Pink Posh

  Hello friends! I am sharing a fun Christmas box card. For this card, I used the new Happy Santa Stamp Set and also added the cutest penguins from the previously-released Penguin Pals Stamp Set. I first assembled the My Favorite Things Level-Up Box in white cardstock and added snow drifts as inserts. For the background panel, I ink blended through the Layered Snowflakes Stencils in Peacock Feathers and Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Inks. Using the same brush, I lightly ink blended on the panel to have a colored background.  Next, I stamped, colored, and cut the images with their coordinating dies.  Blacks - N7/5/3 Reds - R29/27/24 Teals - BG13/11 I then used red ink to stamp the sentiment onto the front panel. Lastly, I glued the images to create an adorable Christmas scene.  Thanks for stopping by! I hope I’ve inspired you to start on your Christmas cards. Happy crafting!

Warm Wishes - Pretty Pink Posh

  Hello friends! Today I have a coffee-themed Christmas card. I’ve used the Layered Coffee Cups stencils, Winter Foliage dies, and the Winter Mug dies for this square-shaped card.  I first cut a 5” square panel and inked through the A layer of the Layered Coffee Cups in Gina K. Amalgam Ink. Next, I inked through the B layer in Spun Sugar and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Inks. For the C layer, I used Spun Sugar and the Gina K. Amalgam ink.   Next, I cut the mug from the Winter Mug dies in pink cardstock and shaded the sides with Copic R00. I stamped the sentiment from the Holiday Sentiments on the mug. For the hot cocoa, I cut it in kraft cardstock and added Copic E70. I assembled the candy cane and decided to turn it upside down to make it  a chocolate wafer stick. I then watercolor sheets of cardstock in shades of green and red. Once dry, I used the Winter Foliage Dies to cut the flowers and greenery for my little floral arrangement. I splattered some white paint before gluing it

Pinkfresh Studio November Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends and welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio November Release Blog Hop. I’m so excited to share a couple of cards that I made with the new products, especially since I finally joined on the bandwagon and got a Hot Foil machine. For my first card, I hot foiled the Modern Design Blocks - Foil on white cardstock and used the Modern Design Blocks Stencil to add colors. I love that there are different layers and I decided to skip a couple of layers and leave some white areas. I went with the following colors: Spun Sugar , Antique Linen , and Tattered Rose Distress Oxide Inks. The main image is made with the With Sympathy Stencil and I used the same ink for all the layers for a monochromatic look. I cut it with the coordinating die and added dimension on the card by stacking a few cuts of this floral arrangement.  I tied a burlap twine on the stem and added the sentiment . For my second card, I hot foiled both the background and floral cluster. I went for a mixed metal look,

Warm Winter Greetings - Pretty Pink Posh

Today I have a Holiday card featuring the Winter Drinks Stamp Set. I’ve been waiting for a coffee-themed stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh and finally it’s here! If you were lucky enough to grab the Stamptember exclusive, this set would pair nicely on a card or any coffee-themed project. If you are a coffee lover like me or have coffee-loving friends, this set is perfect to have in your stash. To start, I ink blended a 4” x 5.25” white cardstock in Spun Sugar Distress Oxide on the center and Worn Lipstick along the border of the card panel. Next, I stamped, colored, and cut the images from the Winter Drinks Stamp Set and small accessories from the Holiday Envelopes Stamp Set.  Greens - G43/40, YG67/63/61 Reds - R27/24/22/21/20 Teals - BG13/11/000, BG09/05/13 I foam mounted the coffee cups and mugs on a sheet of vellum and glued it onto the card panel.

Winter Foliage - Pretty Pink Posh

Hello crafty friends! I’ve made beautiful paper floral arrangements with the new Winter Foliage Dies. It’s a long process, but totally worth it once it’s all put together. With the Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor set , I painted sheets of watercolor cardstock in shades of brown, gold, green, red, yellow, and pearl white. I cut the Winter Foliage Dies in these cardstocks and made a floral arrangement by gluing the smaller elements onto the large flower. I then splattered some white paint on the floral piece for added interest.  These floral clusters are so addicting and fun to make. You can combine different sizes and different elements and use them for cards, gifts, and other projects. I just love the way they turned out! I hope that you like today’s project and that I’ve inspired you to craft with these dies. Thanks so much for stopping by!

3D Paper Christmas Trees - Pretty Pink Posh

Hello and welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh October Release Blog Hop!!! Hello crafty friends! I have made the cutest 3D paper Christmas trees using the Pine Trees dies and I'm very excited to share some tips and tricks for making these trees. The Pine Trees include 3 different sizes and I was able to cut 4 of each from an 8.5" x 11" cardstock. The work is tedious, but the end result makes it all worthwhile. Just enjoy the process ;) Once all the pieces are cut, simply score in half and glue one side to the other. The more trees you add, the fluffier it gets. Here is my first tip: use a binder clip to keep the trees in place while the glue dries. I used 10 trees each for these pink ones: I cut some snowflakes from the Winter Mug dies and used them as tree toppers. How about some pretty, pink, posh ghosts? (You like what I did there? Hehe) The ghost die cut is also included in the Winter Mug dies. You can add a little bit of glue or just tuck it in-between the pages of the

Mitten Shaker Tags - Pretty Pink Posh

  Hello crafty friends! I’m sharing Mitten-shaped shaker tags that I’ve made using the new Mitten Shaker Die.  For these gift tags, I cut the mittens in glittered cardstock and cut several pieces in white cardstock, which I glued together to make a well for the shaker. To have a coordinating look to the tags, I used patterned paper from the same paper pad for the backing of the shaker tags. I simply traced the mitten on the patterned paper and acetate and cut to shape.  I filled the mittens with Holiday Cheer Mix clay confetti. I then use a cropadile to punch a hole for the tag and twine. I love the way these turned out and I can’t wait to use them for my Christmas gifts.  That’s all for these shaker tags. I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project. Thanks for stopping by!

Tea Box - Pixi Dust Designs

Hello crafty friends! This month, I am Guest Desiging for Pixi Dust Designs - they are a new craft company and I love their products on their site. So I was super excited when   they reached out to me for a Guest Design spot.   When I received the products in the mail, the first thing that caught my eyes were the purple dies. Their dies are soooo pretty! It’s such a unique look and I’m totally obsessed with it. Let’s get to today’s project share.  I’ve made a small box that I filled with mini cards. For this project, I used the Tea Box dies and Spellbinder paper.  I first cut the main pieces of the Tea Box in pink cardstock and cut a heart window on the inside panel. I glued a sheet of acetate on the back of the heart. I then folded at the score lines and glued the tabs to form the box.  Next, I cut the front and side panels in patterned paper and glued them onto the box. I then embellished the box with a gold star and foam mounted a “Merry Christmas” banner. Lastly, I filled
