Hello, sweet friends! In today’s video I am showing you how to create a quick card using the May 2015 Embellishment Kit from Pinkfresh Studio. This kit is super pretty with lots of copper details. Me? I decided not to use the copper this time to show you how versatile this kit is.

I used the Up in the Clouds paper collection from Pinkfresh Studio as my main card panel. I really like the different shapes and colors. It gives a cute and playful effect. The stamp set in this kit is designed by Winnie & Walter so of course I couldn’t resist to use that small hello stamp. I created a foiled frame to go wit the sentiment. For this foiled frame, I didn’t use any heat. Instead, I used Stick It Sheets to create sticky card stock. Next, I carefully rubbed the mint foil on the sticky paper. Finally, I die cut it using the sweet frame die from the embellishment kit. To finish off the card I adhered some epoxy stickers.

Happy Saturday everyone! 🙂 In today’s Saturday Stamp Day video I am showing you how to create a cute hello card and how to foil a die cut.

For today’s card, I used the adorable You Gnome Me stamp set and die cut set from My Favorite Things again. I really love this stamp set. All of these images are so much fun and I know that I will be using this set a lot in the future so stay tuned for more creations.

You all know I love foil, right? Today I foiled a beautiful die cut from Winnie & Walter using my favorite mint foil from Heidi Swapp. The Bonding Powder from WOW! is really great for this technique. However, this technique doesn’t give you super smooth results. On the picture you can see that there’s a bit of a gradient on the greeting. I don’t really mind, though. 🙂 Finally, I finished off my card using a variety of Pretty Pink Posh sequins since I’m a bit obsessed with those.

Hello, sweet friends! It’s Laura here and today I am sharing two cute cards with you. Today’s blog post is part of the Pretty Pink Posh Product Release Blog Hop in honor of the new dies. More information about this blog hop can be found at the end of this blog post. 

For my first card, I used the new and sweet You Gnome Me stamp set from My Favorite Things to create a sequin shaker card. I used the new Stitched Banner Duo 2 die cut set from Pretty Pink Posh along with gorgeous and pastel colored patterned paper by Avery Elle.

I filled up my sequin shaker with a variety of the new PPP sequins. 🙂

For my second card, I used the adorable Ella and Friends stamp set from Mama Elephant. That big elephant simply makes me happy. I couldn’t resist using the sweet bunny as well. If you want to see how I colored these images, I recommend watching THIS video.

I also decided to use the new Garden embellishment kit from Pretty Pink Posh. What caught my eye was the use of purple. To coordinate with the new sequin mixes, I used Milled Lavender distress ink to create a background. After adding a foiled strip of patterned paper, I thought that the card could use an extra oomph. (For a video on how to use this patterned paper, click HERE.) I decided to add some green baker’s twine, which is also included in the new embellishment kit. 🙂

GIVEAWAY
