Pretty Pink Posh May Blog Hop

Hello friends and welcome! I'm so very excited to be sharing with you today as one of the special guests for the Pretty Pink Posh May Product Release Blog Hop! (I'm seriously still pinching myself!) For those of you hopping along, you may have arrived here from Jeanne Jachna's blog, but if not, you can find the full list of participants below and join in all the fun!


Congrats Wedding Card | Happy Owls Stamp & Die Set


For my first card, I used the Happy Owls Stamp Set and Happy Owls Die Set to create a sweet little wedding card. I stamped and die cut all of the images and then colored in the cute little owls and their accessories using Prismacolor colored pencils.

I used the new Scallop Circle Tags Die Set and put together my little scene as the focal point of the card. I then dressed it up with a bow and of course some fabulous Pretty Pink Posh 6mm Navy Sequins and Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Navy Sequins.

The final touch I added to the card was to die cut one of the layers using the new Scallop Borders 2 Die Set. These borders are so fun to create with and are perfect for adding the special touch to any card.

Thinking of You Card | Bee Friends Stamp & Die Set


For my second card I'm featuring the adorable Bee Friends Stamp Set and Bee Friends Die Set. I again used the Scallop Circle Tags Die Set, however this time I altered it a bit as you can see. I used a plain circle die to cut an opening in the center of the tag. I then flipped the scallop circle tag upside down in the die, lined up the scallops and cut off the tag top to give me a plain scalloped circle. I always love when I can stretch my supplies, don't you?

I created the background by placing a hexagon stencil on a piece of yellow cardstock. I then applied Mustard Seed and Wild Honey Distress Ink with an ink blending tool. After completion of the background, I adhered the scallop circle die cut and stamped the sentiment. Next I adhered the adorable bees with double sided foam adhesive. 

I have to admit, that part of me wanted to add more to this card. However, the simplicity of the design really spoke to me, so I choose to leave it as is. I do know though that I'll be making a similar card in the near future with a bit more embellishment to it and I can't wait to share it with you!

  5. Julianna, both designs are awesome! Your first card of the bride and groom owls is so cute with the circle tag and scalloped edge. Love how you stretched your die on the second one from a tag to a circle, which is perfect for your bees. The yellow hexagon stenciled backdrop makes me think of honeycomb. Genius!
