Scallop Background featuring Pretty Pink Posh

I have 2 cards to share with you featuring the same technique but different looks featuring the Scallop Borders 2 die.

I have realized over time that I'm not always the best putting my explanation of how to make a card into words, so I took picture as I went, it also helps me remember because I have a 5 month old at home that doesn't believe in sleeping so I often have mommy brain😋

I then took my card panels, my first one being an A2 size of Neenah desert storm and my second being an A2 size of white card stock, from there I lined up my die cut , temporally taped it down and ran it through my die machine until my panel was in multiple pieces. I made sure to keep those pieces in order as they were cut( as shown in picture) and then adhered them onto my card base in order to create my background! For my kraft colored card I splattered some gold water color on it from the Gansai Tambi starry water colors for some added interest.

For my second card I did the same as above but just using a different border die from the set and I decided to add some color. So I ink blended some distress ink onto the individual pieces , I used Dusty Concord, Broken China and Spiced Marmalade. Once I had the pieces colored I splatter some water on top for a sort of fun distress look and once all dried I adhered onto my base to finish background.

For my sentiment I used the same sentiment for both cards from the Woodland Critters stamp set. I stamped it onto strips of vellum. I should have mentioned before I adhered down my die cut pieces I tucked my vellum under one piece, or you adhere your pieces on a piece of card stock before you put it on your card base.
I wanted to add a little on each piece of vellum on my collored card I used the owl from the Happy Owls stamp set and for my kraft card I used a bee from the Bee Friends stamp set. I stamped them on a white card stock colored in with Copic markers and cut them out using the coordinating dies

To finish off both my cards I scattered some Sparkling Clear Confetti Mix.
It gives the perfect finishing touch!

That's it for me today!
I appreciate you stopping by!
Hope you have a lovely day!

A Little Bundle On The Way featuring Lawn Fawn

Hello crafty friends!
 I wanted to quickly share with you the cards I created for my baby shower invites. My mom and mother-in-law hosted my shower but I insisted on making invites:p

I made multiples at once, so I kept them fairly simple and  created them sort of assembly line style.
I started with a white card stock card base and cut the scallop rectangle border die from PPP out of some light pink card stock. I used the adorable Little Bundles stamp set from Lawn Fawn for all my images.
I stamped the baby clothes and birdies on water colore card srock, colored them in with Zig real brush markers and fussy cut them all out. I stamped the clothes line and pins directly onto the card stock and adhered all my fussy cut images on top.

I stamped my sentiment to finish them off!
I stamped all the invite information inside but if I left that out this card could just be used as a new baby card.

That's it for me today!
Always appreciate you stopping by!!
Hope you have an amazing day!!

Woodland Critters Card and Matching Tag featuring Pretty Pink Posh

Hello crafty friends!
Hope your doing well!
I have a fun card and tag combo featuring the adorable Woodland Critters stamp set along with some other newer products from Pretty Pink Posh.

Also SO excited to announce I will be joining the Pretty Pink Posh team for another term! Yay!
There are giveaways to celebrate. So head over to the Pretty Pink Posh blog for your chance to win a $100 gift certificate! 

So on to my card!!
I'm in love with neutral colored backgrounds other then white so I started off with a fog card base from SSS and I stamped the leaves from the Bold Blooms stamp set with Smoke ink for a tone on tone look. I stamped my critters on watercolor paper and colored in using Zig real brush markers and cut them out using the coordinating dies, putting these aside, I then cut a scallop circle out of the same colored card stock as my background. I cut the large scallop circle tags and used the small pieces in the stitched essentials dies to create the circles on the top of the tags.

I adhered my scallop circle down and moved onto my scene, I ink blended some mint ink onto the bottom of the white tag and adhered all my critters on top.
I adhered this pieces with some foam tape to pop it up a little bit.

I stamped my sentiment on the card from the same Woodland Critters stamp set and the for you sentiment onto the matching tag from the Everyday Greetings.
I added a few sequins on to the card to finish it off and that's it!
A cute matching card and tag!

Thank you for stopping by!!

CAS Lovely Blooms featuring Newtons Nook

Hope your all having a lovely day!
I have a very simple but bright and cheery card today today to share with you.

For this card I used the Lovely Blooms stamp set by Newtons Nook.
I started with a white base and decided to keep it white so my colors from my flowers would pop.

I stamped all my flowers and leaves on watercolor paper and colored in with Zig real brush markers and fussy cut them out to adhere onto my card.
I stamped my sentiment onto a separate piece of white card stock and cut out making a banner shape and sort of free handed some black lining around it so it pop a bit more.
And to finish off my card I scattered some Pink Peonies and Sunshine Glow sequins from PPP.

That's it super simple but I love the color on white!
Thank you soo very much for stopping by today!!
