Pretty Pink Posh September 2018 Release

Hello, crafty friends! Thank you for hopping along with us! Are you enjoying what you’re seeing?! I’m certainly am! This fall release from Pretty Pink Posh is amazing! I really couldn’t pick a favorite from the lot, but I decided to start with the sweet images from Pumpkin Patch Critter Friends because I’m just a critters girl. I love me some adorable critters and these are  perfect for the upcoming fall.

I started my card by stamping out the images I wanted to use with Versamark Vintage Sepia ink onto Bristol smooth cardstock. I knew I was going to color with Zigs today. Lately, I’ve been really feeling my Zigs. I just love the way it blends on Bristol paper but it’s also very quick to blend. Real life has been very busy with the new school year, so I love how fast I can color with Zigs.

Any who, I then die cut everything with their coordinating dies and set them aside for later.

I cut an A2 size background also out of Bristol smooth paper and ink blended from the bottom up with Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers. I added more pressure in the bottom and faded up to white. I then flicked on some Peacock Feathers splatters onto of my blending and my background is done.

After the background was completely dry, I used Versamark ink and heat emboss the sentiment that comes with this stamp set in gold embossing powder.

I adhered all my critters onto the card with foam tape and finished with some beautiful gold jewels and my card is finished.

Again, this card is relatively simple but really packs a punch w/ the beautiful images and jewels!

Thank you for stopping by! I hope I inspired you to make some fun fall cards soon!
