PPP JUNE RELEASE BLOG HOP


Hello and welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh June product release blog hop! I created two cards to share with you today. For the first card, I used the Darling Dragonflies stamp set and for the second card, I used the Koala Friends stamp set and Hello Shaker Die.


For the first card, I Copic colored the stamped images from Darling Dragonflies and cut them out with the Darling Dragonflies Dies. I actually stamped each dragonfly twice, fussy cut the second set and glued that onto the first in order to add dimension and make them look like they are fluttering. I used a white gel pen to add highlights to the images. 


To make the front panel, I masked the bottom of a trimmed white card stock with a half circle of masking tape and stamped the grass stamp from Darling Dragonflies all around it to make a little pond. I removed the mask and Copic colored the grass. After, I inked the half circle with Distress Ink and stamped the sentiment from the Koala Friends stamp set. 

To add the clouds to the panel, I used Distress Inks and a cloud stencil I made by die-cutting acetate with a die from Stitched Borders2


To finish, I foam mounted the images to the card front and added a few Sparkling Clear Sequins.


For the second card, I stamped an image from Koala Friends with Copic friendly gray ink for no-line coloring. After I colored the images with Copic markers, I added fur-like texture with Prismacolor pencils and a white gel pen. I then cut it out with the Koala Friends Dies.


For the front panel, I created a patterned background by stamping the images with gray ink from Koala Friends. To add a little bit of color, I colored the cheeks and the leaves with Copic markers. 

For the frame around the koalas and the sentiment, I die-cut dark gray cardstock with the Hello Shaker Die four times. I separated the attached "Hello" from the frame and glued the die-cuts together for dimension.


To finish, I adhered to the frame and the sentiment to the front panel and foam mounted the image inside the frame.

Thank you so much for visiting me today. I hope you enjoyed today's hop. Make sure to visit the Pretty Pink Posh blog tomorrow for the June product release blog hop day 2!
