NOTE: because this post went up today, there won’t be a Saturday Stamp Day video. Sorry!

Good morning, stampers. Today I am part of the Pretty Pink Posh 1st Birthday Celebration. This is a very exciting blog hop filled with lots of festivities and inspiration. You probably arrived from Nicole Gavaldon’s blog. Be sure to keep on reading because I will be sharing the giveaway details about this blog hop at the end of this post.

For my project, I used the brand new Stitched Duo 3 die cut set from Pretty Pink Posh. This set is simply fantastic. I love the round shape of the tag and the stitched edges make it simply perfect.

This card came together quicker than expected. First, I die cut a lovely tag using the Stitched Duo 3 die cut set from PPP and a snowy hill using the Stitched Borders 1 die cut set. (By the way, after adhering the snowy hill on the tag I lined up the tag die cut again and ran it trough my Big Shot one more time.) Since this tag needed a bit of an extra oomph I decided to emboss glittery stars using the Falling Flakes stamp set from Neat & Tangled. Next, I adhered a row of white pom pom twine on the tag. I really like these pom poms, they are perfect for the winter.

Afterwards, I colored and die cut a penguin and bear from the Winter Pals stamp set from WPlus9. These critters are simply adorable and I this set might be my new favorite. Then, I adhered the tag on a woodgrain notecard using foam adhesive. Finally, I embellished the card using a mix of Pretty Pink Posh sequins. 🙂

Hey friends! A couple of weeks ago, I told you that I would be guest designing for a fun company this month. Guess what? I am guest designing for Neat & Tangled and I cannot wait to share my projects I made using their awesome products. In total, I will be sharing three projects on the Neat & Tangled blog.

You Are Beary Special. Created by Laura Sterckx as a Neat & Tangled Guest Designer.

For my first card I used the super cute Little Bear stamp set along with the Festive Fall Sequin Mix to create a fun shaker card. 🙂

This card came together quickly and it would be great to mass-produce. You could also stamp some stars instead of using paper. Be sure to visit the Neat and Tangled blog for all the details about this card. Thank you, Danielle for sending me products to play with! I am so honored to be guest designing this month.

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you all have been recovered from the busy holidays. 🙂 Today, I am here with another Saturday Stamp Day card and video using some of the new goodies I showed in my previous haul video.

It has been a while since I did some watercoloring so today I reached out to my beloved Gansai Tambi watercolor set to create a quick background. (By the way, the big box of 36 colors is currently on “reserve”. However, the two colors I used are also available in the 18 and the 24 set in case you’re interested.) I have one quick tip for doing washes of watercolor…. Simply dab your brush on your paper and add water if you want to create a lighter wash. It really helps! After the background was dry, I looped some white thread and I adhered a pretty wood veneer donut from Dear Lizzy on top of that thread.

The Donut You Know stamp set from Reverse Confetti has some great donut-releated sentiments in it that match the wood veneer donut perfectly. I heat embossed one of the greetings onto a vellum banner and adhered it on top of the watercolored background. Normally I use Glossy Accents to adhere these vellum banners, but today I used Multi Medium Matte from Ranger along with a stylus. This makes it easy to add teeny tiny dots of adhesive behind the white letters. To finish off the card, I used matching Pretty Pink Posh sequins and Dear Lizzy enamel dots. 🙂

That’s it for today. Thank you so much for stopping bye!
