Pretty Pink Posh July Product Release Blog Hop-Day 1



Hello, and welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh July product release blog hop day 1!

If you arrived here from the Simon Says Stamp blog, you're at the right place. There's a full list of participants at the bottom of this post if you're starting from here.

I'll be sharing two cards with you today. My first card features the new and adorable Sea Friends stamp set.  I stamped the images and colored them with Copic markers and added accents with white Gelly Roll pen. Then I used their coordinating dies to cut them out.


To make the front panel, I trimmed Bristol cardstock to an A2 size and used Stitched Border to add stitched detailing around the panel. For the wave/water panels, I used trimmed A2 size Bristol cardstock and die cut it with the scallop border die from Stitched Borders

I added clouds on the front panel using an acetate stencil I made with the cloud shape border die from Stitched Borders 2, by applying Distress Inks with a finger dauber. I also colored the waves with Distress Inks. Once the inks dried, I heat embossed the sentiment "You Are Wonderful" from the Woodland Critters stamp set.



To create my scene, I mounted the wave panels with foam tape and adhered the fish with double sided tape. I made my own wobbler with a craft wire, and adhered it between the dolphin and the background panel. I mounted the splashes with foam tape. To finish, I glued on few Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix and added details with a white Gelly Roll pen.


My second card features the new Fly A Kite stamp set along with one of my favorite older set, Woodland Critters. I love mixing stamp sets to make fun scenes. I thought it would be cute to have the bear and the bunny fly the kites. I stamped and colored the images with Copic markers, used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I added white dots on their cheeks with Gelly pen.


To make the front panel, I trimmed Bristol cardstock to 4"x 5-1/4". Then, I die-cut full adhesive Post-Its using the cloud dies from Fly A Kite coordinating dies. I used that to mask off areas before applying Distress Inks to the front panel. This leaves white clouds on the blue background once you peel off the Post-Its. Next, I added the sentiment from Woodland Critters. I stamped "Friends" using black Versafine Ink, and I stamped "Forever" on  a small stripe of black cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it in white. 


To create my scene, I adhered the clouds with double sided tape. I mounted the "Forever" sentiment, critters and the kites with foam tape. To finish, I adhered the front panel to an A2 sized top folding card base and added few Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix for a touch of sparkle.
