Pretty Pink Posh Holiday Release Blog Hop






Hello and welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh Holiday Release Blog hop! I'm super excited to be joining the blog hop this month to share with you some things I've created with the beautiful new products! 




For my first card, I used the beautiful new Amaryllis stamp set and coordinating dies, the Winter Frame cover die and the sentiment is from the Winter Wreath stamp set.



The flowers were colored with Copic markers, cut out with the matching dies and added to the card with foam tape. The background was created using Lindy's Magicals. 




My next card was created with the adorable Holiday Signs stamp set and coordinating dies along with the Winter Wreath Stamps set and dies. I again used the Winter Frame cover die, and I used Distress inks for the background. 




All of the images were colored with Copic markers, cut out with the coordinating dies and added with foam tape. 



And my last card, used the beautiful new Winter Wreath stamp set and coordinating dies. I again used Lindy's Magicals for the background. If you are not familiar with them , they are similar to Colorburst, and you use them like watercolors. They have some fun metallic shimmer to them too. 



All of the images were colored with Copic markers, cut out with the coordinating dies, and added with foam tape. The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Winter Wreath Stamp set
Winter Wreath dies

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: Shadow Box Mountain Add-on


Hi there! It's Inspiration week on the Lawn Fawn blog and we have lots of fun projects to share with you  featuring the new Winter/Christmas Release from Lawn Fawn! All of the new products are available now in the Lawn Fawn Store!

The projects I have created today are using the new Shadow Box Card Mountain Add-on dies.


This was such a fun project to make! I love making the shadow box cards! Everything you see is included in the Shadow Box Card Mountain Add-on dies set except for the greenery around the front. That is the Spring Sprig die set. 



I used paper from the Snowy Day Remix 6x6 paper pack for the background on the inside. I also cut some small white snowflakes from the Mini Snowflakes dies.



For my next project, I used the same exact items, I just made a card instead of a shadow box. I cut the opening out of the background card stock using the Shadow Box Mountain Add-on dies and tucked all of the cute die cuts between the snowy hills. The sentient is from the Winter Wavy Sayings stamps and cut out with the Simple Wavy Banner dies.

Lawn Fawn Products use:

Shadow Box Mountain Add-On Dies
Mini Snowflakes dies
Spring Sprig Dies
Simple Wavy Banner Dies
Winter Wavy Sayings stamp set
Snowy Day Remix 6x6 paper pad

The Greetery: Holiday Release Day 4


Hi there and welcome to the final day of the countdown for the October Holiday release from The Greetery! All of the new products you've been seeing over the past four days will be available for sale at The Greetery Friday, October 4 at 10am ET.

Today we are showcasing: Candy Pops collection: Candy Pops Circle die, Tear Away Circle die, Candy Pops Rectangle die, Tear Away Rectangle die, Candy Pops Peppermint Addition, Candy Pops Sentiments stamp set, Clear bubbles in four sizes - circle, deep circle, rectangle, deep rectangle
Speed Tagging Collection: Speed Tagging die, Speed Tagging Christmas rubber stamp, Speed Tagging Christmas Sentiments stamp set + matching dies



I can't even tell you how much fun I had stamping and putting together all of these cute little tags. I stamped them in every color imaginable, but chose to work with just the red, green and black so that they would all coordinate for my blog photos. You know how that is :)



The new Speed tagging stamps and dies are absolutely ingenious! The stamp is one large red rubber stamp that stamps all of the tags, then the die is also one large die that cuts them all out. It makes creating tags super fast. I also used the Speed Tagging Christmas Sentiments stamp set for all of the sentiments and little details on the tags. I am serious, this was a really fun project!



And here is one of the finished tags on a little gift bag! So cute! I can't wait to use them on my packages this Christmas!

Products used in this project:

Speed Tagging Stamp
Speed Tagging Die
Speed Tagging Christmas Sentiments

***


And last, but certainly not least are the new Candy Pop dies! They are adorable and super fast and easy to put together!



For my projects, I used the Candy Pops Circle, Candy Pop Rectangle, Candy Pops Pepermint Addition, and the snowflakes from the Frosty Corners dies.


I stamped the sentiments along the edges with the Candy Pop Sentients stamp set and added baker's twine bows to the wrapped ends.

Supplies used for this project:

Candy Pops Circle dies
Candy Pops Rectangle Dies
Candy Pops Peppermint Addition
Candy Pops Sentiment stamp set

Hi there and welcome to Day 3 of the countdown for the October Holiday release from The Greetery! And am I ever excited to share my projects with you today! Can you say "Christmas floral?" I love floral sets and Betsy does "the" most gorgeous floral clusters and layered stamps! 

Today we are showcasing:  With Love at Christmas stamps & dies, Addressed die, Flappable stencils, Sentiment Suite: Christmas stamp set, Envelopes - cream & white (selling in packs of 25)



For my first card, I used the With Love At Christmas stamps and dies, the Addressed Die, and the Frosty Corners die. My background was watercolored with Lindy's Magicals.  


I created a matching envelope using the new Flappable stencils and the new white envelopes. I just think that is so pretty :)




Now for this card, I used the Flappable Stencil on the card itself to create a soft backdrop for the beautiful poinsettia cluster. 



And again, I made a matching envelope with the Flappable Stencils. 

Supplies used for my projects:

With Love at Christmas stamps & dies
Addressed die, Flappable stencils

The Greetery: Holiday Release Day 2



Hi there! Today is the second day of the countdown for the October Holiday release from The Greetery! And as if yesterday wasn't enough, just wait to see what fun things we have in store for you today! 

Today we are showcasing Christmas Care-A-Van stamps & dies, Happy Hippie Van die, Happy Hippie Van Details die and Happy Hippie Van Details Stencil.




I just absolutely love the way this card turned out! That little van is so adorable. I had to stamp about 25 of them in different colors, but decided I liked the lime green one the best :) I added some trees from the Fir & Foliage stamp set too. 




I watercolored the background with Distress inks and the little snowflakes are actually dots of acrylic paint. I did them all individually by hand. I couldn't risk splattering it at this point and possibly getting a big giant blob somewhere :)



Oh and how cute is this little van! It was so fun to make. Very easy too! It's really fun to change out the different background papers to make them very different looking, or use the Hippy Van Stencils too!


I used some stamps from the Christmas Care-A-Van Stamp set to decorate the sides of my little vans. And I used the Sentiment Suites dies and a sentiment from the Christmas Care-A-Van set to make the little tag on top.


This one I did with some pink patterned paper. It could easily be for a birthday favor or even Valentines day!


I again added the little tag on top with some baker's twine.


And now you can see how cute they are from the back! They open up and you can fill them up with all kinds of goodies! Just so fun!

Supplies used for my projects:

Christmas Care-A-Van stamps & dies
Happy Hippie Van die
Happy Hippie Van Details die

The Greetery: Holiday Release Day 1



Hi there! Today is the first day of the countdown for the October Holiday release from The Greetery! I'm super excited to share my projects with you because this release is absolutely stunning! And Christmas is my favorite crafting season!

Today we are showcasing Fir & Foliage No. 2 stamps & dies, Tree Trimmings stamps & dies, Christmas Eve stamps & dies, Drifting die, Frosty Corners die and Frosty Flakes stencil.



My first card uses the Fir & Foiliage stamp set and dies along with the Tree Trimming stamp set and dies. The snowflakes in the background are from the Frosty Corner die set. 


For the background I used Distress ink and misted with water then let it dry. The trimmings on the tree and the sentiment were heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  The beautiful hills that my trees sit on were cut out with the new Drifting dies.




My second card here was created with the beautiful Christmas Eve stamp set and matching dies. This is such a pretty set. The church is stamped in layers with five different stamps, and it turns out so realistic and lovely! I think the two vintage cars that are included the set are so cute too! 



For the background on my card, I used the new Frostly Flakes stencil set and Distress inks. I also added water drops and blotted those to create the snow falling. I again used the Drifting dies for the snowy hill.

Supplies used for these cards:
Fir & Foliage No. 2 stamps & dies
Tree Trimmings stamps & dies
Christmas Eve stamps & dies
Drifting die
Frosty Corners die
Frosty Flakes stencil
