Hello friends! The new October Release from Pretty Pink Posh is now available! I created two cards to share with you today that feature some gorgeous products from this new release!
For my first card, I created a one-layer card using the new Snowmen Friends Stamp Set. I trimmed a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock slightly larger than 4.25″ x 5.5″ and stamped my snowmen onto the front-center portion of the card, masking as I went so that some images appeared behind the others. While still masked, I also masked the ground area with a piece of Gina K Designs Masking Magic Paper and blended my snowy sky with a mix of Spun Sugar, Kitsch Flamingo, and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Inks.
Next, I heat embossed some snowflakes with Clear VersaMark Ink and Fine Detail White Embossing Powder. Once dry, I then removed my masking pieces and colored my images with Copic Markers. Lastly, I trimmed my card down to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and adhered it to an A2 sized top-folding card base.
Copic Colors Used:
- Snowmen: 0, C00, C1, C3, C4
- Green: BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78
- Reds: R05, R46, R59
- Top Hat: W2, W4, W6, W8
For my second card, I created a clean and simple card using the gorgeous new Poinsettia Corners Stamp Set. I stamped these images onto another piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored them with Copics, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
For the base of my card, I lined two pieces of white card stock and used some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape between the two for added dimension. My bottom piece measured 4.25″ x 5.5″ and the second layer measured at 4″ x 5.25″. I then added a small layer of vellum that I had trimmed to 4.75″ x 3.5″. Prior to adhering my vellum, I stamped my sentiment from the Holiday Greetings Stamp Set with black StayzOn Ink onto the front center of the vellum.
Lastly, I added my poinsettias with 3D Foam Adhesive Tape for extra dimension.
Copic Colors Used:
- Reds: R02, R17, R46, R59, R89
- Large Leaves: YG01, YG07, YG17, YG67
- Holly: G40, G82, G94, G99
