Hello and welcome to my stop on the Pretty Pink Posh November Blog Hop Day 2! If you’ve been hopping along with us, you should have arrived here from Crystal’s blog. However, if you’re just joining us now, you’ll find the full list of blog hop participants today at the bottom of this post.
The PPP November Release has such a sweet mix of products! I am so thrilled to share with you projects featuring the new Winter Woodland set, Joy shaker die, and the Sparkling Clear Snowflake mix. I had such a blast coloring up these cute critters! So, to bring the whole gang out, I will start with my card featuring a whole lot of them!
I started out my stamping all my images with Chocolate Brown hybrid ink with my mini MISTI. I like using the MISTI to make sure I get nice crisp stamped images, in case my first pass was not as even as I hope for. Then, I colored all my images with copic markers, a little detailing with a white gel pen, and then die cut them all out with the coordinating Winter Woodland dies.
Next, I worked on the background and blended Faded Jeans and Peacock Feathers distress oxide inks. I then picked up some white watercolor paint and generously splattered it across the blended background.
Once the background was dry, I was able to do my heat embossing. I laid out my critters so I knew where I can heat emboss my sentiment without it getting covered. Once that was done, I reached for last year’s Winter Wonderland set to heat emboss various snowflake patterns into the background. Then, I glued the new Sparking Clear Snowflake sequins to the center of each snowflake I heat embossed.
I wanted to create a narrow frame for my card, and I did so by die cutting the zig zag stitched borders from the PPP Stitched Borders 1 dies. It’s such a cute little design to add to the border. I adhered the top and bottom piece with foam tape, and then the entire gang that I colored with foam tape as well.
Next is this absolutely gorgeous Joy Shaker Die. I die cut this die on white card stock three times and layered them together for thickness. For my background, I ink blended Peacock Feathers and Broken China distress inks. Then I generous splattered white watercolor.
I stamped the branches from the Winter Woodland set twice and the two birds. Then I colored them with copic markers and die cut them out with the coordinating dies. I wanted the branches to crossover the joy sentiment so I had them reaching out from the edges of the cards. I adhered them with foam tape, along with the birds.
Aren’t the birds just the sweetest? I absolutely adore all the products from this release. So stunning! You’ll find all the supplies that I used in today’s projects listed below. Now, head on over to the talented Lexa Levana next!
