You're So Sweet - Pretty Pink Posh

Hi crafty friends. Today I am sharing a square-shaped card today, using the strawberry die from the Valentine Mug Addition Dies . This set is a perfect addition to the previously-released Winter Mug Dies .  I first cut a 5” square white cardstock and ink blended it through the Grid Stencil with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink. I then cut the Wonky Stitched Square in patterned paper. You can also make a gingham pattern with the  Wide Stripes or the Pinstripe Stencil . I then stamped the sentiment in the center of the wonky square panel. I foam mounted it on the card panel and added jewels for added interest.  For the strawberries, I watercolored scraps of paper in red, green, brown, and white pearlescent. I then cut the strawberry from the Valentine Mug Addition. The swirls and little hearts are just too cute! For the pink dip, I used pink cardstock and added Liquid Pearls in White Opal. Lastly, I adhered the card panel onto a 5.25” square card base.  That’s all for this sweet strawb

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
