Pretty Pink Posh March Release Blog Hop


 Hello and welcome day 1 of Pretty Pink Posh March release blog hop. 

I have two cards to share with you today. My first card features the beautiful Cherry Blossoms stamp set and coordinating dies.


To begin, I stamped the flowers and the leaves with Antique Linen Distress Ink on watercolor paper for soft, no line coloring. On the same paper I drew a simple branch. I watercolored all the images with Distress Inks that I diluted with water. I used gel pens to add few details on the flowers. I die-cut the flowers and the leaves with the coordinating dies and fussy cut the branch.


I watercolored the front panel as well. Once dried, I stamped the sentiment from Encouraging Greetings stamp set and embossed it in white. After, I adhered the images with foam tape for dimension as shown. To finish, I mounted the panel to a top folding card base with foam tape and glued on few 4mm Droplets.


My second card features the adorable Best of Luck stamp set, coordinating dies and the pretty Jewels. To begin, I stamped the images and colored it with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

Then I trimmed white cardstock little smaller than A2 sized and stamped the sentiment as shown. After, I stamped the rainbow dots from the Sparkle Dot Patterns 1. I used the dots as a guide to glue on the jewels.


To finish, I mounted the colored images with foam tape and adhered the panel to a A2 sized green cardstock, and then to a top folding white card base.
