Make a Wish - Pretty Pink Posh

Hi there! Today, I'm excited to share my latest creation with you - a fun, square-shaped shaker birthday card using stencils and dies from Pretty Pink Posh! If you're anything like me and adore the PPP layered stencils, then you're going to absolutely love the Layered Birthday Cakes Stencils . To create this card, I started with a 5" square white cardstock and used Gina K Amalgam Ink in Warm Glow to ink through the A layer of the stencils. For the B layer, I opted for vibrant shades of Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, and Twisted Citron, while for the C layer, I chose a delicate Spun Sugar. Lastly, I used Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink for the final layer. I specifically picked these colors to match the Birthday Cake Clay Confetti , which adds a playful touch to the design. To create the shaker element, I cut a square frame using square dies, added a sheet of acetate, and surrounded the frame with foam tape. I then arranged the clay confetti in the center of the ca

You're the Tweetest - Pretty Pink Posh

Hey there, crafty friends! I'm so excited to show you my latest creation featuring the new Decorative Birdhouses Die, Stitched Birds Die, and Spring Foliage Die from Pretty Pink Posh. This circle-shaped card turned out so cute, and I can't wait to share all the details with you! To start off, I cut a 4.5 inch circle from some white cardstock and used the Layered Clouds Stencils with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink to create a fluffy cloud background. Then, I matted the panel onto a 5 inch circle that I had ink blended with Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink. The colors complemented each other so nicely! Using the Decorative Birdhouses Die , Stitched Birds Die , and Spring Foliage Die , I cut out all kinds of shapes from various colored cardstock. It was so easy and fun to mix and match all the different elements. I even used the Stitched Strip Dies to make a little stand for the birdhouse. To add some extra texture, I splattered some white ink onto the card. It turned out so cu

Birthday Cards - Spellbinders

Hey there fellow crafters! I'm so excited to share with you two handmade cards that I recently made using the new Spellbinders Stitched Numbers Etched Dies . These dies are seriously amazing and allowed me to create unique and personalized designs that I just can't wait to show you. For my first card, I started with a 4.25 inch x 5.5 inch panel in Teal Topaz and added a decorated edge frame using one of the dies from the Fluted Classics Rectangles Etched Dies . I then cut the numbers "1" and "3" from the Stitched Numbers Etched Dies in white cardstock and added stitching details in ombre colors using different strands of DMC Floss . I combined Dark Aquamarine, Dark Seagreen, and Light Seagreen to create a beautiful ombre effect. To complete the look, I cut the outline of the numbers in Pink Sand cardstock and used Helmar glue to adhere the numbers onto their outlines. Next, I glued the numbers onto the teal card panel. I then hot foiled the sentiment an

Waffle Flower April Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends! Welcome to the Waffle Flower April Release Blog Hop. I'm so happy and honored to guest design for Waffle Flower for the month of April. Today, I am highlighting a few of the products from this beautiful release.  For my first card, I started with an A2-sized white cardstock and ran it through the die cut machine with the  Pop-up Butterflies Panel Die. I then inked through the  Duo-tone Butterfly Stencil with Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide Ink in the middle and inked blended the sides with Milled Lavender Distress Oxide Ink. I did this technique for both layers. I heat embossed the  sentiments in gold and cut them with the coordinating dies. I love that these come with coordinating die cuts! I cut a few pieces to stack for dimension. Then, I scored the centers of each butterfly and folded the wings towards the center.  I wanted a different color in the open spaces of the butterfly wings, so I cut an A2-sized gold glitter cardstock and glued it under the card
