Get Well Soon – Shaker Card

I received this gorgeous custom sequin mix from Pretty Pink Posh recently and new I had to use them. Seriously, friends. The photo doesn’t do this mix justice. I can’t stop looking at how beautiful and sparkly it is! So I designed this card purely around PPP Friendship Mix. If you love it as much as I do, I recommend picking it up. The site says this is a limited edition so I’m not sure how long it will be around for.

Since the mix is primarily pink, I decided to bring in a little peach to the card so I made the background by blending in Distress Ink Dried Marigold on the bottom and Distress Ink Spun Sugar on top. I think this is my favorite combo. I did the same with a little more of a heavy hand for inside the shaker and kept it more peach for more contrast with the sequin mix.

The butterflies were colored with Copic Markers and the circle die cut is PPP Exclusive Scallop Circles die. The sentiment came from Thoughtful Greetings stamp set.

I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I do!

Lawn Fawn Party Animals – A Birthday Card for Rina

Happy Birthday, Rina!

I made a card for my crafty friend who’s birthday is today! (Check out her YouTube channel to see her amazing craft room!)

I also wanted to make a card for the Lawnfawntic Challenge – Watercolor so I combined the two projects into one card!

For Rina’s card, I used Lawn Fawn Party Animals. I love it when I am able to incorporate the tiny detail stamps, like the confetti and asterisk, that comes with the stamp set! I don’t know why but I always feel a real sense of accomplishment when I do this! Ha!

All the stamped images are colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. The background is watercolored with Distress Inks in Abandoned Coral, Mustard Seed and Peacock Feathers. I adhered all the critters to the background and popped up the two little birds and the items the parties are holding with foam tape for dimension. I glued on some tiny star confetti to the background and voila! Rina’s card is finished!

Summer Days and Camping Adventures

School is officially out and summer has begun. Every year we take a camping trip as a family. Normally we do it in the summer but this year we did it early for Spring Break since we decided to go to Cancun over the summer instead. We just got back from Cancun but I saw this stamp set on my desk and it made me think about the fun memories we make during our camping trips. So I decided to make a fun scene using Pretty Pink Posh Camping Friends. This card just puts a smile on my face!

I colored all the images with Copic Markers and die cut grass using one of the stitched border dies from Pretty Pink Posh. The grass is Distress Ink Crushed Olive and the sky is Distress Ink Tumbled Glass. I aded a few sparkling clear sequins to give it a little something special and shine!

Lawn Fawn Duh Nuh Handmade Card
You are Jawsome

This last LawnFawn release was just pure gold. I had to get this Duh-nuh stamp set when I saw the cute shark! And the duh-nuh mini sentiment is so cute and funny!

I used a frame die and a few stamps from Mermaid for You to have enough images for my own happiness and satisfaction. Haha. I colored everything in Copic Markers. The background was Distress Inks in Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon blended together! I added some water droplets onto the background to lift off some color so it looked like ocean bubbles! A few sequins finished off this card and it’s so cute and fun!

Bee handmade card
First Post on the Pretty Pink Post Design Team

First Design Team

I am so excited and thrilled to announce I have been asked to be on the Pretty Pink Posh Social Team. I will be designing cards for social media that showcase products from Pretty Pink Posh. I absolutely love their products which makes this more fun than it is work!

First Card

It was difficult to choose among all the great things I received to showcase as my first card. I decided to stay true to myself and my style and keep it simple. This chubby bee from Bee Friends was the first PPP stamp I ever used when I made my first slider card a few months ago. I decided it was the perfect stamp to showcase as my first card on the team.

I blended Distress Ink in Twisted Citron and Tumbled Glass for the background. The bees and flowers are colored with Karetake Clean Color Real Brush Watercolour Brush Pens. I finished the card with PPP Sparkling Clear Confetti Mix which gives it a little sparkle and shine. I also added a few Peridot Mist sequins to the grass area to anchor the card and add even more interest.

I can’t wait to share more Pretty Pink Posh projects with you all! Be sure to follow me on Instagram!

You Are Wonderful – PPP Woodland Critters

Pretty Pink Posh Woodland Critters

Extra Images – What to Do with Them

I always stamp out extra images and color them “just in case”. Sometimes a color doesn’t work out or I”m not happy with the stamped images.

In this case I colored the mushrooms red and decided it clashed too much with the previous design so I decided not to use them. But I also didn’t want them to go to waste. I used the extra bear and wood stump and paired them up with the mushroom for a simple card. I kept everything white and stamped the sentiment in the same brown Versamark ink. It turned out so cute for something that wasn’t exactly planned! I love that I didn’t waste any of the images I colored and got two cards from one coloring session!

Pretty Pink Posh Woodland Critters

I took advantage of the Memorial Day sale and picked up this back-in-stock Woodland Critters stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh. I wanted to use my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to water color so I decided to do it with this new set!

There were so many cute images to color I didn’t even use all the critters that came with the stamp set!

I really wanted to try a soft sepia look, so I stamped everything in Versamark Sepia ink then colored everything in muted tones.

The background was created by blending Distress Ink Bundled Sage for a soft grass and the sky is Stormy Sky for a muted gray blue.

I finished the card by making a frame out of Mama Elephant dies and adding white sequins.

PPP Woodland Critters


A close up of the images shows a few details I added with a white gel pen. I feel this gives the images a little extra something special!

PPP Woodland Critters

I love these hedgehogs. I went a little too crazy w/ the white pen on the first one. Haha. Lesson learned!

PPP Woodland Critters

This card will always be near and dear to me. It’s what caught the attention from the team at Pretty Pink Posh and how I was invited to join their design team – my first design team! I love their products so I said yes immediately! I can’t wait to share more PPP projects with everybody!
