Happy Summer {Pretty Pink Posh}...

 As I mentioned in my last Pretty Pink Posh Post, my very first design team was with Paulina's mom, Nami.  Denami had an adorable wood block surf board stamp. Here is my card from back in 2012....

It was the first thing I thought of when I saw this stamp set from PPP called Summer Surfboards and you know I had to recreate it!


Pretty Pink Posh


I took a white card base and lined up the  5 surfboard outlines and sentiment in my Misti.  After stamping them a 2nd time, I colored up the 3 middle boards with Copic markers.  


Pretty Pink Posh


Using foam tape, I popped up each of the boards just so this quick and simple card would have some dimension.  


Pretty Pink Posh


Talk about easy!  This card would be super simple to mass produce.  I hope you have enjoyed today's recreation.  It was fun to look back at my cards from all those years ago!

Have a great week!

Hello Friend {Pretty Pink Posh}...

I have a new card up with some Pretty Pink Posh goodies.  Pretty Pink Posh is run by one of my favorites!  I have known Paulina for YEARS  as my very first design team (back in 2011) was Denami, run my Paulina's sweet mom, Nami!  It has been so much fun to see Paulina grow over the years to start her own company and see how amazing it is now...not to mention how adorable her products are.  And then to become a wife and mom!  Melts my heart to see her little family grow.  She is the sweetest and my most favorite thing about her is her gorgeous smile!  When she asked me to be a guest in July, of course I said YES!!

Pretty Pink Posh works so well with my clean and simple style.  I love her stencils and the fonts of her sentiment dies....LOVE!  Here is today's card using the Layered Letters Stencils.  After added color in grays for the envelope, I used the 3rd stencil to add in red for the hearts.  Using the Scalloped Frames Dies, I popped up a white frame around the card front.

To finish off the card, I used the stencil to create one more red envelop and popped it up on foam tape.  I added in the black cardstock, Hello Friend sentiment and then added one little heart from Sweet Love Clay Confetti

You don't look a day over Fabulous!


This months Spellbinders Glimmer of the Month Club is AMAZING!!!  You guys, I love it so much because....STRIPES!!  First, off you get the hot foil plate that has the different sizes of stripes and then you also get a die that cuts strips of cardstock!!  They work together beautifully!  Here is my card using this months club kit....


Spellbinders Glimmer Kit of the Month - July


First off, I foiled a white piece of cardstock using the striped plate and gold foil.  I just love that shine!  Next, I die cut 3 colors of cardstock with the strip die.  I added those in between the foiled stripes for a super fun background!  Next, I used a sentiment from Spellbinders Fabulous Friend Stamp set up in the top corder.  To finish off the card, I die cut blooms from the same cardstock and created a little arrangement on the front using Be Bold Blooms, also from Spellbinders.  I just love those adorable blooms!


Spellbinders Glimmer Kit of the Month - July


Spellbinders has several different Monthly Kit options to choose from.  Click HERE to learn about the die kits, the Card kit and many more!

Are you new to hot foiling?


Spellbinders has a platform called Glimmer Hot Foil System.  This platform heats up metal plates called Glimmer Plates.  These glimmer plates come in ALL different types....sentiments, florals, backgrounds, graphic details etc....and add the most gorgeous foiling detail to your cards.  And the foils?  There are LOTS of different colors to chose from!


Here are some links to help point you in the right direction....






The Glimmer Hot Foil System works great with a Platinum 6 Die Cut machine from Spellbinders but also works with other die cut machines. You can click HERE to see a compatibility chart.  


First you heat up the platform and your glimmer plate on the Glimmer System Platform.  Then you add in the foil and the cardstock and run it thorough your die cut machine.  Once you pull off the foil negative, the magic happens!  That foil that is set on your cardstock and the results are just gorgeous!

You are all together beautiful {The Greetery}...

The latest release from The Greetery has some amazing dies and stencils.  The Leaves All Around Stencil and Die Set is one of my faves!  I love the possibilities of the frame, or cutting it in half and using just one side....or in today's case...making a butterfly!


The Greetery



First, I die cut the Leaves All Around frame and then added it to a sticky mat.  By doing this, it makes the stencils stick down and easy to blend in the color.  I added in a layer of Altenew Lime, Altenew Volcano Lake and then some Altenew Sunray for the little berries.  I decided to cut the frame apart and when I laid it down, I knew it could be a really cool Butterly.  I grabbed the Crimped Frames die to create a white card front and added it to a green card base.  I love this sentiment from Love Song Sentiments, so I added it to the bottom of the card front in black ink.  After adding in lots of foam tape squares, I taped the butterfly down to the card front.  


The Greetery


The Jumbo Curiosity Moth Dies worked perfect for the large butterfly body so I went in and did a little ink blending with Altenew Lagoon ink on the antenna's and body.  To finish off the card, I added some random dew drops...because I am addicted to them and its ok to put them all over the place.  :)


The Greetery
