Pretty Pink Posh New Product Release Blog Hop!


Welcome to the New Product Release for Pretty Pink Posh!
Paulina has just released some fantastic new dies and sequins!!  I'm excited to be sharing these with you!

I've used the new Stitched Banner Duo Dies to create a mini shaker card to show off some of the new 4mm Springtime Sequin Mix.  Look at all the stitching!

These colors just scream SPRING to me!  I love the mix of the new spring colors in the 4mm size.  They are perfect for a mini shaker card!  My sentiment, bird, and branch are from a new stamp set/die from Reverse Confetti called The Tweet Life.

Today's card uses the newest and most fab Cover Up Die yet.......Pointelle!!!  OMG......this die is fantastic and I've not seen anything like it!  I wanted to create an elegant card using the Pointelle Cover Up done in WHITE.  I layered this onto a top folding white note card.

Amy Pointelle

Now for a few more details.......those flowers?  They are die cut from the Modern Mehndi Die set.  After diecutting, I simply used coordinating Copic markers to flick color for some details.  My sentiment is from the set Sketched Floral Stamps.  I white heat embossed it onto a strip of black cardstock and hand trimmed into a flag.

Lil' Inker Designs March Release: Day 2


Welcome to Day 2 of the Lil' Inker Designs March Release!  This release is FULL of amazing dies and stamps that will be perfect for those any occasion cards.......are you ready?  You should have arrived from the  Sarah's blog.   But guess what??  The whole new release is now available and can be found HERE!!!


My first card uses the new Hey, Foxy Stamps/Dies.  If you love foxes, then you will love this new adorable FOX with stitching!  There are lots of ways to customize your little fox.  I've used the flower die from the Flip Flop Dies to embellish my scene and to adorn the fox!

Amy Fox 1

I've used the Wonky Squares as a funky way to display my scene.  These are on special this month too!  See details below!

Amy Fox 2

My second card uses the new AMAZING stamp set called Really Rosemaling.  Truthfully, I had no idea what Rosemaling was when I received this set but a little searching found tons of ideas.  This set has ENDLESS possibilities!!!  (it may be my favorite LID stamp set to date!!!!)  I was inspired by some bright color combos that I've pinned on my Color Board for this card!

Amy Rosemaling

I've framed my Rosemaling images with the Side Stitched Rectangles Mats.  I added my panel with foam adhesive and added a few sparkling clear sequins!  A simple sentiment was stamped with StazOn onto vellum and adhered with mini gluedots under the letters of the sentiment.

Lil' Inker Designs March Release: Day 1


Welcome to Day 1 of the Lil' Inker Designs March Release!  This release is FULL of amazing dies and stamps that will be perfect for those any occasion cards.......are you ready?  You should have arrived from the  Lisa's blog.   But guess what??  The whole new release is now available and can be found HERE!!!


My first project features the new Mini Canvas Die, Paint Your Canvas Stamps, and Mini Easel.  I started by doing a Distress Ink background onto my Canvas Diecut by dragging it through Abandoned Coral, Squeezed Lemonade, Cracked Pistachio watered down inks that were on my craft mat.  I completely let this dry and then stamped my sentiment in Memento Black ink.  

Canvas 

The one thing that is fantastic about this Mini Canvas Die is the detail Laura included around the perimeter of the canvas.  LOVE!!  

Canvas2 

My second project features this ADORABLE new Triangle Treat Holder Die.  To make this, you need one piece of cardstock or pattern paper.  I used some mini dot pattern paper in a neutral color.  After diecutting 2 panels, I scored and assembled my box.  

Bunny Treat Holder

Once assembled, I added the details like the ears and paws which I embellished with R20 Copic.  The little face and sentiment flag was stamped using the Bunny Treats Stamps (part of the bundle).  I added my sentiment which was stamped onto a Sentiment Flag and stapled to a toothpick.  There is plenty of room to add in some sweets to the inside prior to assembly.  This is truly adorable once assembled!

****If you are here for my Sparkle and Shine Challenge post, please scroll down!****


It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!
The LEAD of Lucky will be invited as a Guest Designer in our next challenge!


I couldn't let St. Patrick's Day pass without using one of my all time favorite Verve sets: Lucky You.  I just love the detail in the sketch marks of the shamrocks.  I stamped the shamrock and diecut using the coordinating Shamrock dies.  I added my sentiment to panels that were die cut with the Border Builder Dies from Lil' Inker Designs and added a few Shamrock sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
