Pretty Pink Posh

Featuring Pretty Pink Posh products

Happy Mother’s Day!

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to share one of the cards I gave to my lovely mum today!

I stamped the Pretty Pink Posh Spring Wreath in Antique Linen Distress Oxide and embossed it with clear powder.

I coloured it in and then die cut the wreath.  I used an Echo Park stencil to apply a few subtle hearts to the background before adhering the wreath.

Finally I added an Avery Elle sentiment… and a few small gems (AFTER I had taken these photos).

I’m entering this into the current CAS Colours and Sketches challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Spring Blossoms

Hi everyone!

There’s a feeling of spring in the air today – I can see buds appearing across the garden!

So I felt it was right to pull out my Pretty Pink Posh Cherry Blossoms stamps and dies for my take on the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I coloured the flowers with Twinkly H2Os and Prismacolour pencils and arranged them on a rectangle of Basic Grey paper.

The sentiment is by Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by!

Non-traditional tree

Happy Christmas Friday!

I loved how Lindsey from the Pretty Pink Posh DT used glitter card for her Pretty Pink Posh tree last month and decided to see what a white tree would look like! It’s so sparkly in real life!

I paired my tree with a My Favorite Things festive script background in non-traditional colours of distress oxide (dried marigold and vintage photo)!

I almost didn’t share this card here as the talented Erica from CaCaCraft just shared a lovely card using the same stamp and die… I decided to in the end as they look quite different! Plus I suspect we’re not the only 2 crafters to combine these gorgeous supplies!

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 26 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2018

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year.

Day 26 is a bonus day with A Jillian Vance Designs as sponsor. As usual, the designers had come up with some amazing inspiration and I was particularly taken by two tags using a deer head with glasses! So quirky! Now, unfortunately I don’t have any glasses dies, but I decided to create my own take on Rosemary Dennis’s tag.

I used an old Tim Holtz/Sizzix die that I have had for AGES, but rarely use nowadays as it’s one of those thick BIGZ dies and has been banished to the depths of a cupboard. So glad I came across it by chance on Saturday and that I can use it so quickly after!

I added glitter ornaments from my beloved Pretty Pink Posh Festive tree die set and adhered the whole image to a tag cut from Basic Grey. Ah, I still miss Basic Grey! Just as well I have a small mountain of it still!

I’ve loved this challenge even more this year! It’s been such fun stepping outside my comfort zone from time to time and using a variety of my festive supplies – old and new alike!

Thanks to Tracey and all the designers who made this such a fun event!

And thanks to you, of course, for stopping by!

Day 22 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2018

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year.

The sponsor for Day 22 was Waffle Flower and the team had many colourful tags – such great inspiration. I decided to base my tag on Channin Pelletier’s fun tree tags.

I used my new Pretty Pink Posh Festive Tree dies again and got to work! I loved the soft aqua tree that Channin created and it looks like she either inked the edges in white or only coloured part of the tree. I reckon she did the former!

I actually coloured each layer of the tree using an Altenew Alcohol marker and then added a few Nuvo Jewel drops and a glitter star to complete my tag.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 12 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2018

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year.

The sponsor for Day 12 was Pretty Prink Posh. I love this brand so much and have been able to add a lot more of their stamps to my crafty collection as I discovered Dies to Die For sell them here in the UK! I have just bought the new Layered Tree die and I couldn’t wait to use it for my take on the gorgeous tag by Caly Person.

The most time was spent choosing the green cardstock to use for each layer! Once cut, I lightly sponged some distress ink over each section before sticking them together. Finally I added a glittery star and some Nuvo Glitter Drops to complete my take!

Thanks for stopping by!
