Pretty Pink Posh May 2023 Release Blog Hop

Hey there, crafty friends! Welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh May 2023 Release Blog Hop!


I'm so excited to share with you my latest handmade card creation using Pretty Pink Posh Decorative Birdhouses and Stitched Birds dies. It's such a fun and easy project to make, and I hope it inspires you to get creative and make your own beautiful cards.


I started with a 4.5 inch square card base in white cardstock, and to add some pattern, I used the Swiss Dots Stencil with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink. To save some paper and time, I inked directly on the card base while keeping it folded to prevent any ink or paint from getting onto the back of the card. I then added splatters of white ink for added interest.

Next, I cut out the birdhouse and stitched birds in various colors of cardstock and pieced them together. I love how these dies are so beautiful and versatile, and you can use different colors of cardstock to customize the birdhouse and birds. To make it even more fun, I turned the birdhouse into a shaker element by cutting a heart window in the center and using the Rainbow Shimmer to fill the shaker. I'm obsessed with the different colors of the shaker bits, and they add such a playful and whimsical touch to the card.

To make the birdhouse stand out, I foam mounted it onto the card base, and I also made a stand for the birdhouse by cutting a strip of kraft cardstock and gluing it onto the back of the birdhouse. This adds some dimension to the card and makes it look more like a three-dimensional birdhouse.


For the sentiment, I chose "You make my heart sing" from the Just A Note Stamp Set and white heat embossed it on a strip of black cardstock. I think it's such a sweet and fitting sentiment for this card, and it adds a personal touch to the project.

I hope this post has inspired you to get creative and make your own handmade cards. Happy crafting, friends!

October Release 2023 Blog Hop - Pretty Pink Posh

 Hello and welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh October 2023 Release Blog Hop! For my card, I started out with a light blue cardstock that measures 4.5 inches square. I stenciled through the Winter Words with Finnabair Snowflake Paste for a fun background. I then made a mug shaker using the Winter Mug Dies and the cutout to make a window for the shaker is from the Birthday Mug Additions Dies. The shaker bits are from the Christmas Cookie Shaker Beads . I used various colors of cardstock from Spellbinders for my card. I added a cute little bird from the Holiday Birds Dies and a couple gifts using the rectangle pieces from the Build A Stocking Dies. The rest of the die cuts are from the new Holiday Mug Additions Dies.  Then I added some pink dots on the greenery with Liquid Pearls in Ballerina. Lastly, I glued the card panel onto a 4.5-inch square card base. Make sure to check out the rest of the Hop for more inspiration using the new products from Pretty Pink Posh! There are 4 $30 g

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
