Hello, everyone! Welcome to Day 2 of the Pretty Pink Posh June Release Blog Hop! I am so excited to be hopping along with such a talented group of cardmakers! If you’re following the hop, you should have arrived from the amazing Cathy Zielske.
I’ve created three new projects to share with you, using mostly products from the new release. (Affiliate links used.)
For my first card, I created a fun little see-through Box Card with some beach goers that are ready to surf. I combined the new Summer Surfboards Stamp Set along with the Summer Friends, Tropical Birds, and the Sea Friends Stamp Sets.
I always love combining stamps sets that I already own with new ones that are coming out! To begin, I first stamped all of my images with Copic Friendly Black Ink and then colored them with Copic Sketch Markers. I used all coordinating dies to cut them out.
I used the wave die from the Stacked Edges 1 Die Set and did some partial diecutting to achieve the waves in the front of the card. I diecut the waves and water from White Card Stock and then blended them with Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Inks.
I lastly heat embossed my sentiment with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder onto one the flaps of the card.
For my second card, I combined the new Tropical Birds Stamp Set along with the Tropical Background Stencil Set to create a festive card filled with pinks and greens. I used both Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink to blend over my stencil.
For the beach-portion of the card, I diecut a stitched hill once again using the Stacked Edges 1 Dies. I also did a partial cut on this piece using only one portion of the die so that I could create a hill.
Lastly, I created a fun single-layered card by stamping 7 surfboards from the Summer Surfboards Stamp Set. For the beachy background, I carefully drew it with a pencil, stamped my images, and then colored it with Copics.
I then heat embossed my sentiment with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder. Lastly, I used a White Gel Pen to add some highlights.
