Hello everyone! 🙂 In today’s blog post I’m sharing a Pretty Pink Posh announcement and the winner of the Simon Says Stamp “Falling For You” Blog Hop.

PRETTY PINK POSH

I am beyond thrilled to announce that I will be joining the Pretty Pink Posh Design Team for another term. Yay! Words cannot express how much I love to work for PPP, and of course you all know about my sequin obsession. The best part about the new term? Three new designers will be joining us in the Pretty Pink Posh DT. In honor of that, Paulina created a matching game. Can you guess which project is mine? Let me know in the comment box below. Also, check out Paulina’s blog post.

WINNER

A couple of days ago, I participated in the Simon Says Stamp “Falling For You” Mega Blog Hop. There was a giveaway in that blog post and Simon Says Stamp drew a winner. The winner is: Karen Walker. Congratulations, Karen! Simon has already contacted you. 🙂 Thank you everyone for leaving such sweet comments. You can also visit the SSS blog to check out the other winners in case you’re interested in that.

Hey, stampers. This week, Winnie & Walter are premiering their April/ May release. Today we are showcasing: In Bloom: Lola’s Bouquet with Joni Andaya, Essentials: Audrey Cutaways and In a Word Cutaways. Visit the Winnie & Walter blog for links to projects of the other design team members. Remember, these products will be available for purchase on May 1st. 🙂

I decided to showcase the In Bloom: Lola’s Bouquet with Joni Andaya stamp set today. As the name of this stamp set says, this set is designed by my fellow Winnie & Walter design team member, Joni Andaya. I fell head over heels in love with this set once I saw it. I stamped these flowers with Hero Arts inks and Simon Says Stamp inks. The stamping went super fast because I used my MISTI.

Words cannot express how much I love foil. I used the 5th Avenue collection from Heidi Swapp to create some foiled patterned paper. I thought that the card could use some extra “bling”, so I die cut the In a Word: Happy Cutaway from W&W out of gold glitter paper. Since I wanted some extra dimension, I die cut the greeting one more time using Fun Foam. To finish off the project, I used a variety of Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

INSPIRATION

One of the questions I receive a lot is: “Where do you get your inspiration from?”. My number one source for inspiration is Pinterest. As an example: today’s project is inspired by THIS image. Isn’t that awesome? 🙂

Hey sweet followers. Today I am part of a fun blog hop hosted by Simon Says Stamp to showcase the new products from the “Falling For You” release. Click HERE to see all of the products and to do some shopping. 😉

For my project, I used the adorable Baby Party Animals stamp set. I colored the images using several Copic Markers and I used white paper from Simon Says Stamp to color these animals. It’s the best paper to color with Copics. I love it. Since I wanted to have a bit of dimension, I used masking paper to mask off the bunny in the center. I stamped a birthday greeting underneath the critters using the More Sketchy Banner Greetings stamp set from SSS.

Like I mentioned in my previous blog posts, I am absolutely in love with foil. This time, I used the 5th Avenue paper pad from Heidi Swapp (from the MINC collection) to foil a piece of patterned paper. Simply pick a color of foil, grab the piece of patterned paper and run it trough your laminator. Remember, this technique *only* works with the specific patterned paper from the Minc collection from Heidi Swapp. 🙂 Finally, I finished off my card using the 4mm Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY
