Pretty Pink Posh June Release Blog Hop

June 14, 2018

Hi crafty friends! I hope you’re enjoying the blog hop so far. This release has the cutest products and the inspiration is always amazing!

Today I made a card featuring Pretty Pink Posh School Friends. It’s kind of funny to be making this card on my kids’ last week of school but I couldn’t resist these sweet images.

The Process

First, I colored all the images with Copic markers. I then die cut out the images with their coordinating dies.

Then, I die cut the Scalloped Frames dies onto Bristol smooth card stock paper to make a chalkboard out if it. I decided to go with a vintage green to give it a softer look. I used Distress Inks for the chalk board and the frame. The chalk board is Distress Ink in Twisted Citron and the edges are Mowed Lawn to give it a little dimension with a slight gradient. The board is Distress Ink Gathered Twigs. I kept it darker around the outside and lighter inside for the same gradient look.

I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder to look like it was written in chalk. I finished the card by popping all the images with foam tape to add a little interest to a relatively simple card.

And that’s my finish card. I hope you like it!

  1. Your card is so adorable! I love how you created a chalkboard for the sentiment. The school children and all their little accessories are so cute.

  2. This is so darling! I love your use of these adorable new sets. Fabulous inspiration!
    Blessings,

  3. I don’t know that this is technically a CAS card (according to whatever governing dictionary of craftdom is out there), but it has the feel of one to me. Lots of negative space nicely balanced with the all the elements at the bottom. I really like how this turned out layout-wise as well as your beautiful coloring. Thanks for sharing with us!

  4. Oh !! What a sweet little card design !! You’ve done a very impressive coloring job on the gradient look of your chalkboard ! And the color choice is 100% fits !!
