Pretty Pink Posh - July Release Blog Hop and Giveaway

Good morning! Today we are kicking off the blog hop to celebrate the newest Pretty Pink Posh July Release - an awesome summery release that will have you smiling I know!


I used the darling new Fly Away Friends stamp set and Smile Shaker Die to create my card!


I first created a watercolor background using Peerless watercolors and adding some splotches and splatters for lots of fun texture. While that dried, I die cut the Smile Shaker Die from white cardstock, and stamped the cute little plane and critter from Fly Away Friends and die cut with the coordinating Fly Away Friends Dies. I colored it with Copics, then adhered it on my watercolor background, tucking it in and around the Smile Shaker Die. I stamped the rest of the sentiment under the smile, and added a few sequins from the Sunny Days Sequin Mix. Finished off by matting with orange and then green cardstock, and adhering that with foam to a white cardbase.


Also, in case you didn't see it - here is a card I made with the adorable new Bear Hugs stamp set and Stitched Diamond Dies - it posted on the Pretty Pink Posh blog last week - details HERE if you are curious!
