PRETTY PINK POSH Poinsettias

By on November 22, 2018

Hello, crafty friends! Today’s card features these beautiful Poinsettias images from the latest release! Pretty Pink Posh has been coming out with amazing florals lately and this one is no exception. Perfect for the season, I made a Christmas card by pairing it with the gorgeous Season’s Greetings  Script die!

First, I cut a piece of watercolor paper to A2 size and played around with a wash of color in green and ivories using my Gansai Tambi watercolors. I splatter on some coordinating green and my background is basically done. I left this to dry to work on my coloring.

I stamped the poinsettia images with Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I water colored these flowers with Zig markers in two colors – Wine Red for the flowers and Mid Green for the leaves. I used my water brush to move the color around and create the gradients and shadows. I then splattered on coordinating paint on top of my flower. I feel it adds interest and hides any imperfections you think you might have. Lol.

Next, I die cut everything with coordinating dies. Since I had my die cutter out, I also die cut “Season’s Greetings” out of gold glitter paper.

Now, it was time to assemble my card. I popped all 3 flowers with foam tape and arranged them onto my card. I trimmed off anything that was hanging over the A2 card. I then tucked the leaves on and adhered them directly onto the background with strong glue. Next, I glued on the Season’s Greeting sentiment to the top of my card. The entire panel was then adhered to an A2 top-folding card base with foam tape and my card is compete!

MAMA ELEPHANT Heart in Bloom | Stamp Highlight

By on November 20, 2018

Today we are highlighting Mama Elephant Heart in Bloom from the current release. How gorgeous is this large image? I’m more of a critter gal than flowers but I love the unique heart shape of this large stamp and decided to highlight it on my project today.

I stamped the large heart with Versamark and heat embossed with silver embossing powder. I then positioned the sentiment and did the same embossing technique. Then, I took one a few Zig markers in purples and blues and colored with them and a water pen.

I used the coordinating die to die cut the image and a piece of fun foam which I mounted my colored image on.

Then I die cut the new Woodgrain Cover Creative Cuts as well as the thin frame from Dotted Details Creative Cuts to create my background. I finished my card with a few clear droplets from Pretty Pink Posh and my card is finished.

I hope you liked my card! Thanks for stopping by!

Pretty Pink Posh + WOW Collaboration

By on July 23, 2018

Pretty Pink Posh + WOW

Hello crafty friends! Today’s project is part of a very special blog hop collaboration with Pretty Pink Posh & WOW! Embossing Powder! As with any fun blog hop, there are some great prizes so be sure to comment for your chance to win!

Let’s begin! First, I stamped the beautiful Pretty Pink Posh Hummingbird Thanks images with Versamark onto Bristol smooth card stock. I covered the images with WOW! Embossing Powder in Rose Glitz (which is a very cute pink gold pretty true to rose gold) and heated it with my heat gun until the images were smooth and melted. I then did the same process with Pretty Pink Posh Flourishing Fuchsias stamps. I colored all the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and die cut them with their coordinating dies.

Next, I ink blended my background with Distress Ink and splashed water on top for some interest. I let this dry and heat emboss the sentiment from Encouraging Greetings in the same WOW! Rose Glitz embossing powder. This embossing powder is a gorgeous metallic pink color. I love it!

I adhere all the images onto foam tape and arranged it onto my A2 card. To finish the card, I adhere Pretty Pink Posh rose gold sequins. These matched the embossing powder perfectly!

This card is relatively simple with a lot of impact due to the beautiful images and gorgeous rose colored embossing powder! That’s it for my card!

Lawnfawnatics #31 | Flowers

By on July 1, 2018

I made a last minute entry to Lawnfawnatics #31: Flowers, Floral and Foliage! It was actually pretty involved but turned out to look very simple. Let’s begin!

Lawnfawntatics 31

First, I colored the three cuties from Easter Party and fussy cut then since I do not have the coordinating dies that are available. I set this assigned and did a ton of die cutting.

I have been die cutting a lot lately so I used a lot of my scraps to make this card. First, I diecut the Little Flowers dies on color card stock. I then die cut the Cloud Border die on vellum and white glitter paper (even though it does not show up on my photo). I then cut the grass board on more colored cardstock.

Next, to add some dimension, I ink blended on all my die cutt pieces with coordinating colors that are slightly darker than the colored card stock to give it depth. I love how this turned out.

I then heat emboss a sentiment from Simply Sentiments onto the grass and finally I am ready to assemble.

I cut a piece of patterned paper from Watercolor Wishes down to A2 size. I adhered the clouds and grass on with a tape runner. I popped the three cuties on with foam tape then I lastly filled in the voids by adhering the flowers on with wet glue. I adhere the entire panel on an A2 card base and my birthday card is done!

Thank you for stopping by!

Garden Frame Stamp Highlight | Mama Elephant

By on June 22, 2018

Mama Elephant Garden Frame

Today’s project features Mama Elephant Garden Frame. This is a beautiful set and so different from what I usually do. I’m not very confident with flowers and really wanted to do these beautiful and delicate images justice.

First, I stamped everything onto heavy weight white card stock with a Copic-friendly ink. I looked up tiger lilies online and decided to go with the traditional pink and white variety. I colored everything with Copic markers then die cut with the coordinating dies and set the images aside to work on some ink blending.

The die cuts out a frame with an opening in the middle. I stamped the “Happy Birthday” sentiments from the stamp set with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I did some emboss-resist and inkblended with Distress Ink in Faded Jeans for a muted navy color. I cut down this to be around the same size as the frame.

I prepared an A2 card by die cutting a piece of pattern paper using the Basic Rectangles Creative Cut in the largest rectangle which is A2 size. I adhered this to my card base with tape runner. Then, I adhered the ink blended sentiment onto the card base with more tape runner. Lastly, I popped up the Garden Frame I colored earlier with foam tape for dimension.

I finished the card with some droplets and this relatively simple card packs a pretty good punch because of the beautiful ME images from Garden Frame.

I hope you liked my card today and thank you so much for stopping by!

You Make Me Smile…

By on March 24, 2018

Lemon Tea Crafts - Handmade card

Today I felt like mixing it up a little bit…literally. I stretched the supplies I had and made this card featuring Pretty Pink Posh Cherry Blossoms and Lawn Fawn Quilted Background die. (This post contains affiliate links).

This card has huge impact because of the intricacy of the dies and the floral stamp, but it was actually quite simple to make. I colored the flowers with Copic markers then die cut them with coordinating dies. I die cut the frame and quilted background using one piece of paper. What I did to save waste was I cut out the frame first, then I lined up the inside piece into the quilt background die, and die cut that so that I didn’t waste two big piece of paper.

Lemon Tea Crafts

I then inlay the two die cuts onto a A2 top folding card base. Popped up the flowers with foam tape and embellished the card with Pretty Pink Posh 4m clear droplets…my favorite finishing touch with flowers.

For the sentiment, I stamped the Lawn Fawn Flirty Frame and Pretty Pink Posh Encouraging Greetings with Versamark ink onto black cardstock. I fussy cut the frame and popped it onto the card with foam tape and this card is done!

I made this card to play along with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge: Floral Frenzy.

More Than Words Appreciation Card | Pretty Pink Posh

By on February 1, 2018

Pretty Pink Posh Wild Rose Thank You Card

Crafty Confession

I started this card 2 or 3 weeks ago. I colored the Pretty Pink Posh Wildflowers yellow and then it happened – I was stuck. I had absolutely no mojo to continue. I wasn’t sure what it was but I didn’t know where to take the card after that.

Over the weekend, I decided just to finish it and maybe I can move on to the next project. I didn’t have much expectations since I just didn’t have it in me but can I tell you? This card is magic! It turned out better than I could imagine and I’m totally feeling my own work. Haha.

Supplies I Used:

Pretty Pink Posh Wild Rose Thank You Card

The Process

I colored the roses with Copic markers and fussy cut them by hand. I die cut the stitch note background out of craft paper and used Versamark ink to stamp light, monochromatic impressions onto it to make my own background stamp. I used the Stitched Notes die to cut out the large rectangle. I glued this rectangle onto an A2 cream background and put it aside for later.

I then diet the decorative tag 1 out of black and the oval frame that comes with it with a cream card stock, the same cream card stock as the background. I used Versamark ink and embossed a sentiment with white embossing powder onto the black die piece. I secured the cream oval frame with multimedia matte glue and then popped the entire thing with foam tape onto the craft piece I made earlier.

Pretty Pink Posh Wild Rose Thank You Card

I continued putting the card together by adhering the leaves from Wild Roses flat onto the background then popping up the flowers with foam tape so that it’s the same dimension as the black tag with the sentiment. I love this kind of dimension and try to do it when I can. I finished the card with 4mm droplets and metallic gold confetti mix. This week, I used a 60% off coupon and got the Spectrum Noir glitter pens in clear and I am in love. They are even more sparkly than my Wink of Stella. I am just sad that I wasn’t able to photography the sparkles. It’s amazing!

I really do love this card and how you like it too! Thank for stopping by!

Wild Roses | Pretty Pink Posh

By on January 1, 2018

Handmade Card - Pretty Pink Posh Wild Rose

Last card of 2017 for me! Today I featured the wild roses stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh. I don’t really make flower cards often but I want to try and practice more in 2018.

Supplies I Used:

I stamped the Wild Rose stamps with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto 110 lb white card stock. I colored the flowers and leaves with Copic markers. I ink blended an A2 piece of cardstock with Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers and gradually went lighter so it would fade into white. I inked up the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder. I adhere the flowers at the bottom with foam dots and mounted the entire thing to an A2 top folding card base. The card is finished with sparkling clear confetti and a coat of Wink of Stella on the flower petals.

The card is relatively simple but I think it has a huge impact in it’s simplicity. I love it and hope you do too!

Thank you for stopping by!
