Pretty Pink Posh | June Release Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY – Day 3

June 16, 2021

Hello crafty friends! Welcome to day 3 of the Pretty Pink Posh June Release Blog Hop! I hope you have been enjoying all of the inspiration along the way!

I have three cards to share with you today using some of the fun new products from this amazing release. My first card is a slimline card featuring the new Summer Fun Stamp Set as well as some surfboards from the Summer Surfboard Stamp Set, and a cute little crab from the Sea Friends Set. I absolutely loved playing with these adorable images! I stamped and masked my images (using some Gina K Designs Masking Magic Sheets) onto a 3.5″ x 8.5″ piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Masking Sheets so that I could cover my image while stamping another one partially on top of it to make the second image appear behind the first. In order to mask all of my images, I stamped them again onto the masking paper, fussy cut them out, and placed them directly on top of their stamped image on my card.

With the masking pieces still in place, I blended some Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide Inks for my sand area, some Salvaged Patina for my ocean, and some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink for my sky. When finished blending my background, I then removed the masking pieces, allowed my panel to dry, and then colored all of my images with Copic Markers.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Browns: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44
  • Pinks: RV00, RV02, RV04, RV55, RV17
  • Purples: BV000, BV01, BV13
  • Teals: G000, BG11, BG34, BG18
  • Grays: W00, W1, W3

For my second card, I created a fun shaker card using the new Summer Drinks Stamp Set. I once again stamped my images onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored them with Copic Markers, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. For my background, I trimmed a piece of Smooth White Card Stock, blended it with Picked Raspberry, Kitsch Flamingo, and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks. I then cut another piece of white card stock to the same size and diecut a stitched half circular window in it using the gorgeous stitched Window Frames Dies. I glued a clear piece of acetate (to which I had stamped my sentiment with some StazOn quick drying black ink) behind the window, added some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape to the back of this panel and placed it on top of my ink blended panel after I had added some 3mm sequins on top of the ink blended area.

I next added a white frame using the Scallop Frame Dies and attached my images with some 3D Foam Squares for added dimension.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Orange Drink: YR000, YR00, YR02, RV14
  • Reds: R05, R35, R39, R89
  • Greens: YG00, YG01, YG06, YG17
  • Browns: E40, E41, E42, E43

Lastly, I have a third card to share with you that uses images from the Summer Fun Set as well as the Storybook 6 Die Set. I cut my collage from a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of white card stock and layered it with some teal card stock. I heat embossed my sentiment with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder and added my images with 3D Foam Adhesive Squares.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Hippo: W00, W1, W3
  • Groundhogs: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44
  • Sand castle: E31, E23, E25, E29
  • Teals: G000, BG11, BG34, BG18
