Pretty Pink Posh August Release Blog Hop – Day 2 + Giveaway!!

Welcome to Day 2 of the Pretty Pink Posh August Release Blog Hop & Giveaway. I bet you’ve seen some amazing creations over the past two days. I’m so ready for autumn and love to usher it in with such an amazing release. You probably came here from the talented Thi Lam’s blog, Lemon Tea Crafts. If you missed it, be sure to check it out.

Fall Signs “Many Blessings” Card

For the first card I used the Brush Strokes stencil and Deco Foil Metallix in Pure Gold (the shine! OMG) to create the background, which was cut using the Stitched Notes die. I taped off the edges of the cardstock to keep the paste away from the edge. Next, I stamped the cornucopia stamp from the Fall Signs stamp set and colored with Copic markers. I embellished the card using Metallic Gold Jewels.

Copic: (cornucopia) E29, E27, E23, E21. (pumpkin) YR18, YR68, YR15, YR21, E27. (green) YG63, YG61, YG95, YG93. (pear) Y26, YG93, Y21. (apple) R35, R37, R39.

Sunflowers “All My Love” Card

I was pretty excited to do a card with the Sunflowers stamp set. (note, I didn’t use them for this card, but there are coordinating dies) It took me a hot minute to do this one. (a) I’m a slow with watercoloring, and (b) I do love to mask, so it took me a bit to cut out masks for all these pointy-edged sunflowers. But, I find the results are so worth it, (plus I can reuse the masks).

Once the masks for all of the sunflowers and leaves were cut out, I stamped using Distress Ink in Antique Linen and began painting with Daniel Smith watercolors in green, brown, yellow, and red tones.

After, I cut it down to A2 card size (aaaarghh that part gave me heart palpitations. It’s nerve-racking to guillotine chop through hours of work). I then white heat embossed a sentiment from a previous PPP release — the Love Sentiments stamp set onto kraft cardstock and die cut the edges with another previous PPP release — Stitched Borders 2 dies.

Giveaway!

There are four $25 gift certificates up for grabs (two winners each day). Winners are chosen at random along the blog hop. Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PST on 8/28/2019. Winners will be announced on the PPP blog.

  1. Oh my, both cards are beautiful! I especially love your watercolored sunflowers!!! I know what you mean about cutting it down… I try to remember to do it from the start or to tape off the part that will actually be the card front. Keeps me from painting or coloring more than I needed to. Great cards!!!
