Christmas Cards

Pretty Pink Posh October Release Blog Hop

Welcome to day one of a two-day blog hop, celebrating the new October Release, now available in the PPP shop! If you’re arriving from the talented Gemma C.’s blog, you’re in the right spot. A full list of the hop lineup is listed below, as well as details for giveaways on this two-day hop!

I have several cards to share today, starting with two featuring the Holiday Signs Stamp Set and coordinating dies.

I paired a Copic-colored Santa from the Holiday Stamp set with the new Whimsical Christmas stencil. I blended Candied Apple Distress Oxide ink over the stencil onto white card stock, then applied a thin layer of Nuvo Moonstone Glitter Paste before removing the stencil. I used Stitched Diamond Dies to die-cut two windows from a trimmed white card stock panel, and attached the panel over the stenciled background. I added the card front to a card base, and attached Santa with thin foam squares.

I used the adorable Holiday Signs Snowman for my second card.

I stamped and white heat-embossed the snowflake border from the new Winter Borders Stamp Set onto watercolor paper. I used Atlantis Burst, Cherry Bomb, and Blue Blitz Nuvo Shimmer Powders to add color to the background. I made a frame from white card stock, using a Scallop Frame Die. I attached the frame over the background with foam adhesive, then added it to a card base. I added the penguin with foam squares to finish the card.

I still had a bit of the snowflake background left over, so I made a quick clean and simple card with it.

I stamped and silver heat-embossed a sentiment from Winter Friends Stamp Set onto white card stock, and attached the snowflake panel. I trimmed the panel to fit a light gray card base.

My last set of cards features the new Joy Stamp Set, and coordinating dies.

I blended red ink over the Wide Stripe stencil onto white card stock. I trimmed the panel down to 4×5.25 inches, and die-cut JOY from the bottom right corner. I used the letters for the above card. I attached the letters to a white card stock panel, and added two small Copic colored images from the same stamp set as accents. I attached the panel to a card base with foam adhesive, and finished the card with a gold heat-embossed sentiment from the stamp set.

I used the die-cut striped panel to make a shaker card. I closed the front of the die-cut window with acetate, and attached the middle of the O back onto the acetate. I wrapped thin adhesive strips around the letters on the backside of the panel before adding Classic Confetti Mix. I closed the back of the window with anther piece of acetate, and used foam adhesive to attach the panel to a card base. I finished the card with a gold heat-embossed sentiment.

Thanks so much for spending time with me today. I hope I have helped inspire new ideas using these new products. Your next stop on the hop is my dear friend Adelle Emery.
