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. The sentiment is from the Holiday Scripts Stamp Set. I love that the script has coordinating dies! “Warm winter” is stamped on a st

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!
