Birthday Tags

Hi crafty friends!
Hope your all having a lovely week so far! As if it's Friday already! Monday was a holiday hear in Canada so I just feel like this week flew by, which is always a nice feeling!

I'm stopping in today to share some Birthday tags I created with you.
I made 2 sets, one that I can use on boy gifts and the others for girlie gifts.
I used the Stitched Essentials die set from Pretty Pink Posh to create all the tags.

For my first set of tags I used the Fairy Friends stamp set from Lawn Fawn.
After cutting out all of my tags from white cardstock I stamped all my fairies and created masks with them as well, I used my masks to cover the fairies on the tag. I then ink blended a few different colors from the bottom up, creating a sort of ombre affect. Once my mask was removed I colored my images in with Copic markers. I stamped my sentiment from the Scripty Sayings stamp set also from Lawn Fawn.
I used some iridescent mini stars and mini gold hearts to scatter around the tags as a finishing touch, and added some bakers twine to the top.

For my second set I used the Caped Cuties set from Clearly Besotted. I repeated the same process to create them just using different ink colors and used both the silver and gold mini star confetti.

These Birthday tags will be perfect to have on hand for me for last minute cute tags for gifts.
Hope you enjoyed!

Thank you so very much for stopping in today!!
Hope you have a lovely weekend!!

Tic-Tac-Toe challenge # 10

Hello crafty friends!
Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
A new challenge starts today over at Stamping Smile Designs Tic-Tac-Toe challenge.

For my card I decided to use the row of baby, ombre and bow.

I started with a white piece of cardstock and ink blended with some pink ink to get my ombre background and lightly spritzed with water to get the distressed background.
I used the Plus One stamp set from Lawn Fawn for my stork, colored in with Copic markers and fussy cut out leaving a small white border. My clouds are from the Rainbow High die cuts from Mama Elephant. I used Claire's ABC's from Lawn Fawn to create my Welcome sentiment.
I finished off by adding some purple ribbon and scattering some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Hope you will join along for the current Tic-Tac-Toe board.

Pretty Pink Posh May Release Blog Hop


Hello there!

Today the Pretty Pink Posh team is having a blog hop to showcase the recent product release!
I'm SO very excited to participate in my first hop on the team!
You should have arrived from .... blog but if not you can start at the Pretty Pink Posh blog and I will have a full list at the bottom of my post.

For my first creation I used the brand new Storybook 4 die. I'm just in love with the Storybook dies and think this is a great addition! I seriously fell in LOVE with the new rose gold sequins, they are seriously just the prettiest, so I wanted to focus my card around them for a sweet sending hugs shaker card.
I cut my white cardstock with Storybook 4 die, created my shaker element with acetate and I used fun foam for dimension and then filled with the rose gold sequins and used some wood grain pattern paper in the background. I ised the Birdie Friends stamp set for both my sentiment and my sweet little birdie. I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment on a strip of vellum and adhered on my shaker element. For my birdie, I stamped in frayed burlap distress ink on watercolor cardstock and colored in using Zig clean color markers and die cut out using the Birdie Friends coordinating dies.
To finish off this card I stamped the sprig twice from the Holiday Pals stamp set and cut them out using the coordinating dies.

For my second card, I again used the Birdie Friends stamp set and coordinating dies along with the brand new Stitched Essentials 1 die. I'm in love with these dies and can't wait to create some Birthday and Christmas tags with them to have on hand but today I wanted to use one of them on a card. I kept die cut as it came with the oval in the centre but it can be removed and used separately. I did some spotlight stamping here. I stamped my branch on both my card base and the tag and popped up the tag and the inner oval on some fun foam for dimension . I stamped and die cut some leaves to scatter around my branch. I stamped my little birdie and nest separately, colored my birdie with Copic markers and die cut out as well to adhere on top my branch. I adhered this on a green card base, added a strip of silver glitter paper and finished off by scattering the new and beautiful Wisteria Blossom mix.

I adore the new dies and sequins! I hope you enjoyed! Your next stop on the hop is the extremely talented Nina-Marie. There are 2 $25 dollar gift cards up for grabs for the Pretty Pink Posh store so be sure to leave comments along the way for your chance to win! Comments must be left by 11:59pm PDT on May 16/2016.

All products have been released and are now available but I thought I's share another card featuring the very fun Punny Messages stamp set.

I stamped my whale on some Fog cardstock and fussy cut out.
I stamped my sentiment and scattered a few sparkling clear sequins.

That;s it for my card today!!

Whimsy Stamps Day 2

It's day 2 of the Whimsy Stamp May release.
Today we are show casing Sweetest Birthday and Punny Messages.

My first card I used the Sweetest Birthday set. I started off trying to watercolor my background with a chevron stencil with some distress inks but it just got super messy and wasn't turning out right so I sponged over the areas with the same colored ink. So my background is half sponged, half water colored :P
I cut my watercolor panel with a die from PPP and adhered onto some pattern paper. I stamped the "may your day be as sweet as you" on some purple cardstock and created a small banner to put under my main sentiment.
To finish off my card I scattered with some sequins from PPP.

For my second card I used the Punny Messages stamp set. I just love this set, it is so very fun and has the cutest images! I decided to used the elephant image for this one. I cut both my tags, one grey and one white out with the new Stitched Essentials Dies from Pretty Pink Posh and stamped my elephant on the white tag and colored in with Copic markers. I adhered my white tag with some fun foam on top of the grey tag for a little dimension before adhering to my card. I stamped my fun sentiment of a small banner I created. I used the Scallop Rectangle die from PPP as a frame around my card and finished off my card with Sparkling Clear sequins.

That's it for my cards for today! Hope you will join me again tomorrow. I will sharing one last creation for the Whimsy Stamps May release.
Thank you SO much for stopping in!!!
