Pretty Pink Posh New Release Blog Hop!




Hi everyone!  Welcome to my blog and thank you for hopping along to see what the Design Team and other guest designers have created using products from Pretty Pink Posh's new release which you can now buy!  Birthdays are always fun and Pretty Pink Posh is turning 5 and therefore a birthday card seemed appropriate!



My card today puts the irresistibly cute Cupcake Critters front and centre, I grouped them all together for a fun party feel.   I started by delicately ink blending my background panel using a Clarity Stencil Brush and Distress Ink in Spun Sugar.  This panel was then stamped with the happy birthday sentiment using Ranger Archival Ink in Potting Soil.  The panel was adhered to the 110lb Neenah white card base.



Using Bristol Smooth cardstock I stamped all of the images from the stamp set and then I watercolour painted them using the following colours:-

Kuretake Zigs in - Light Gray, Mid Gray, Beige, Oatmeal, Gray Brown, Light Pink and Carmine Red.

Tombow in colours - 243, 969 and 020

Can you tell I'm a mint chocolate chip fan?

I highlighted some areas with a Uni-Ball Signo white gel pen then die cut each image and adhered them into place using two different thicknesses of dimensional foam tape.  The final touch was to make it a truly 'Posh' card by adding some sparkling jewels from the Pretty Pink Posh extensive collection which I couldn't live without!




































Happy crafting everyone - hope you're inspired and please keep scrolling for details and offers and to find the next blog to hop to!
