Hi Barbie Construction Card with Pretty Pink Posh

Wednesday, July 17, 2024

Hi, friends! I am back with a new Pretty Pink Posh video today. I’m not sure why the Barbie movie was on the brain, but I wanted to take a fun approach to the latest release with lots of PINK! Now, I know girls can play with yellow dump trucks - toys don’t have to be pink. But if Barbie had a construction company, you know they would be all kinds of pink!

I started with cutting the Big Dump Truck Dies and Big Excavator Dies out of different shades of pink and holographic cardstock - the windows were blue and dirt pieces were shades of brown. You can follow along in today’s video if you want to see how I assembled them together. Next I began stenciling with the Brick Background Stencil on a sheet of A2 white cardstock with Kitsch Flamingo and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxides. I also stenciled the design on the smallest of the Fancy Card Dies.

I stamped my sentiment from the Utility Vehicles Stamp Set with black ink on the A2 piece so it would be covered by the Fancy Card Die piece as this would be the front of my card. I cut another piece of A2 white cardstock, adhered the small flap of the Fancy Card Die piece to the lower left corner, then adhered my stenciled and stamped piece on top to sandwich the flap in between the layers. I attached the Big Excavator to the “inside” of the card so that you could see it above the Fancy Card Die piece with 1mm foam adhesive. My Big Dump Truck is adhered to the Fancy Card Die piece with 2mm foam adhesive.

For my die cut sentiment, I cut the Large Hugs Shadow Die - the sentiment in white and the shadow in pink - and trimmed the “u” to make the word “Hi”. I started with trimming the white sentiment, adhered it to the pink shadow, and then trimmed the pink shadow to match. I adhered this to my card as well as some Strawberry Shimmer Confetti Mix around the card for some final shine! I hope you had fun with this card and can picture Construction Barbie on the job with her personalized trucks!

Mint To Be Happy Mouse Ice Cream Sandwich with The Sassy Club

Tuesday, July 16, 2024

You know I love my fandom food! I thought it would be fun to make a mint chip ice cream sandwich with the Happy House Popsicle Dies from The Sassy Club. I just used the dies that made the face and die cut them out of brown and mint green cardstock. I also die cut my sentiment from brown and sparkly mint green cardstock.

My short video below shows how I assembled the card, but it's pretty basic and honestly quick to make! I layered the ice cream sandwich together and included some hand drawn chocolate chips. This was adhered to a card base with a cute patterned paper in purple for the background. I then popped up my layered sentiment words onto the card with foam adhesive. Quick but oh so yummy to look at it!

Sketched Snowmen with Astro Pastes from Ranger Ink & Simon Hurley create.

Monday, July 15, 2024

We’re getting into the snowflake spirit, even if it’s still hot outside! The new holiday release from Simon Hurley and Ranger Ink is here along with the fabulous new Astro Pastes! The Sketched Snowmen make an easy watercolor card by following the details of the stamps and hand drawn look of the snowflakes pop on this blue holiday card.

Start with stamping the Brick Background Stamp on a piece of Stark White Cardstock cut down to 4x5-¼”. Use No Diving ink on the top half of the stamp and Midnight Snack on the bottom, blending them a bit where they meet. Using the two smallest polka dots from the Polka Dot Assortment Stencils, add Clear Skies Astro Paste through the smallest dots using the Paste Tool Set. When it dries, add the next largest polka dots with Frostbite.

Stamp two snowmen from Sketched Snowmen in Black Soot Archival Ink and watercolor the images using Simon Hurley create. Ink Pads, water and a paintbrush. Stamp snowflakes using No Diving ink and adding a little Midnight Sky to some of the edges of the stamps. Use the coordinating Etched Dies to cut out the images. Stamp the sentiment in Midnight Sky and trim around the sentiment with a paper trimmer. Adhere the background panel to an A2 card base and add the images and sentiment with foam adhesive.

Hi Friend Summerween Card with Scrapbook.com

Hi Friend! Back in the Summerween spirit with a new card featuring Scrapbook.com Exclusives, but this time on the Scrapbook.com YouTube Channel! It's such an honor to have a video each time on their channel and the fact that I get to do something Halloween themed just brings me such joy. I again used the Sunkissed Paper Pad to inspire the colors of my card (you can see how I did that earlier this month here) and I just love the paste softness!

You'll have to watch my video down below to see how the card comes together, but I've got summer paper and colors, black polka-dot rub ons, Distress Spritz for shine and my favorite technique of using vellum when I'm worried my background is too busy for my image to pop off the card. I also like that the card is not exactly Halloween - maybe you have a spooky friend who would like this card any time of the year? Finally, we have some Pops of Color to finish off the card. I hope you enjoy my card and make sure to leave a comment on the video so they bring me back!

Home for the Holidays Poinsettia Christmas Card with Spellbinders

Sunday, July 14, 2024

The new Home for the Holidays Collection from Spellbinders has some really pretty products - from BetterPress Plates to Embossing Folders and to Etched Dies. I was gifted a few of the products: two die sets and a 3D embossing folder. I used them all on today's card and I filed my process so you can see how I layered all of my die cuts together.

I am loving the argyle pattern for the embossing folder as it is such a classic design that will go with just about anything, not just holidays, for your crafty collection. My favorite part of this card is the pop of peach colors with the traditional red and green colors for Christmas. Check out my video down below and let me know what colors you would use with these die sets!

Graduation Shaker Card with Pretty Pink Posh

Friday, July 12, 2024

Hi, friends! I am back with a new Pretty Pink Posh YouTube video today. I have a nephew who promoted from Middle School to High School and he’s had a ceremony this year! I thought this would be a fun time to use his school colors to make a graduation card for inspiration for you today. I started with doing lots of die cutting!

I used the Graduation Cap Shaker Dies, the second largest Stitched Torn Rectangle Die, and a couple dies from the Big Celebration Cupcake Dies out of white, red, glitter red, blue and glitter blue cardstocks. My sentiment is hot foiled in sparkly red foil using the Hot Foil Congrats Script plate and I used the Congrats Shadow Die to cut it out. My graduation shaker was assembled with a piece of acetate and the Celebration Shaker Beads and I adhered it to my Stitched Torn Rectangle Die white background.

I assembled the party wands and added those beneath the graduation cap and popped up my “Congrats” sentiment on top of them. This panel was adhered to my white, A2 card base with thin foam adhesive. I then added the different confetti pieces around the panel and adhered them to the card base with liquid adhesive.

Honestly, this card turned out pretty USA looking - so you could probably replace the graduation cap and sentiment for something a little more patriotic for any US themed holidays you celebrate! I hope this shaker card brings you some inspiration today and maybe a smile to your face, too!

Happy Holidays Ornament Card with Scrapbook.com

Thursday, July 11, 2024

As you may know, I'm a fan of non-traditional colors for holiday and Christmas cards. While red and gold are definitely a bit more traditional, but adding in pink and no green... I think you still get a non-traditional color feel! I'm using new products from Scrapbook.com released today with a Livestream Deal for this card - it's the Happy Holidays Bundle and includes stamps, dies, paper and rub-ons.

I'm excited to also share you can see a quick process video during the Scrapbook.com Livestream Deal today! It's a pretty simple card - the paper and rub-ons really make the card look more complicated than it was to make. I hope it brings you some inspiration with this bundle and make sure to let me know if you snag the deal in the comments!

Spellbinders July 2024 Clubs - Christmas in July

Wednesday, July 10, 2024

Spellbinders is getting into the holiday spirit with Christmas in July themed Clubs this month! I decided to do my non-traditional color thing and make three cards featuring the different Clubs I am gifted each month as a part of their influencer team. This month I'm featuring the Clear Stamp & Die, Small Die, Stitching Die, Embossing Folder (standard), and BetterPress Plate of the Month! You can follow along in my vide down below to see how each card is put together.

My video today is a bit on the longer side as three cards does take some time, but the last time I asked if my subscribers liked the longer video... the answer was definitely a yes! So I hope you enjoy seeing the process for each of my cards today. I start with the stitched gift with pink, teal and silver - I just love the big bow and the stitched details really give it some personality.

The second card in my video is my favorite as it's inspired by my daughter! She ice skates and the colors are inspired by the retired uniform of her favorite hockey team - the Anaheim Ducks! (You know, back when they were Mighty...) There are a lot of steps layering all of the pieces together, but it's worth every second of time as I just love how cute the skates are and the beautiful florals.

Finally, my third card is simple because by then, simple was sounding nice! BetterPress Plates are perfect for making quick and easy cards and I love the teal and pink for this truck and their pink Christmas tree. I hope you enjoy today's video and let me know which card is your favorite and which Club you're most excited for this month in the comments!

Mushroom House Gate Fold Fandom Card with The Sassy Club

Tuesday, July 9, 2024

Nothing says feeling BLUE like these fandom gnome-like characters! I am using stamps from The Sassy Club to make my card for Craft Roulette this week. I started with stamping and coloring all of images and while there are coordinating dies, I do not have them so I used my Scan N Cut to cut out the images. I am not a fan of gate fold cards, but I did my best to create this fun fold per the parameters this last Friday.

I have my card base and cut the front of the card 1" from the bottom. I adhered a piece of blue cardstock to the 3-1/2" panel and two grassy strips to the bottom of the top panel and on the 1" panel. I adhered down the mushroom house, flowers and mushrooms to the top panel of the front of the card as well as couple images on the inside of the card. Next, I popped up my blue characters to the 1" bottom panel so they overlap and create two parts of the scene.

To finish off the card, I stamped my sentiments - the first part is on a piece of white cardstock that I fussy cut around and popped up onto the front of the card. The second part of the sentiment I stamped on the inside of the card with the images I added. So let's go over the parameters... I have a gate fold card, color inspired by gnomes, the gnomes were featured in a movie and my building blocks are the mushrooms all over the card since the house is built out a mushroom!

Silly Rabbit Bowl of Cereal Card with The Sassy Club

Monday, July 8, 2024

Back to some food fandom fun with The Sassy Club today! I have a quick video down below where you can see how I assembled my card, but before I started I stamped and colored in my images with Olo Markers. I fussy cut out each of the images, but mostly because I was too lazy to set it up for my Scan N Cut. I need to figure out a better mat situation for my machine - it gets un-sticky too fast!

After my images were ready, I die cut my patterned paper background with a scalloped rectangle from Miss Ink Stamps and die cut my cereal bowl supplies. I used Distress Inks to add a little blue to my milk and to deepen the yellow of my bowl for some dimension. My sentiment is also stamped with black ink onto the bowl. I adhered everything together and I think it turned out so darn cute! Especially that shiny, metallic spoon.
