Hello crafty friends! I’m thrilled to be hopping along with Pretty Pink Posh on day 2 of their June Release Blog Hop! If you are hopping along with us, you should have just come from the Pretty Pink Posh Blog.

I have a few projects to quickly share with you today that feature some new amazing products from the latest release.
For my first card, I created a construction-themed card that features the new Construction Trucks Stamp Set combined with the new Dino Dig Stencil. To start, I first stamped all of my images onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then used Copic Markers to color them and the coordinating Construction Trucks Die Set to cut them out.
Copic Colors Used:
- Yellows: Y11, Y13, Y15, V12
- Browns: E31, E23, E25, E27
- Orange: YR02, YR04, YR18
- Black: W3, W5, W7
- Reds: R14, R46, R59
I then trimmed a piece of white card stock to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and used the Dino Dig Stencil along with some brown ink to create “mud pits” for my construction vehicles to sit in. I trimmed this piece down to 4″ x 5.25″ and adhered it on top of a construction-themed background that I had made by cutting .25″ strips from both black and yellow pieces of card stock and adhering them to a piece of card stock before trimming it down to 4.25″ x 5.5″.
For my second card, I combined the new Across the Miles Stamp Set with the new Layered Roads Stencils Pack. To created my background, I used the stencil pack to blend some Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink first to create grassy areas. I then used some Black Soot Distress Ink to create my roads and added my white lines with the 3rd stencil piece along with a white gel pen.
All of my images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and colored with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating Across the Miles Die-namics to cut them out and some 3D Foam Adhesive squares to adhere them to my card front for extra dimension.
Lastly, I wanted to use some pinks and purples to create one more card. My daughter (she’s 9) always says that she wants a pink car, so I made this card with her in mind. I created a one layered card using some masking with a piece of Gina K Designs Masking Magic Sheets along with the new Across the Miles Stamp Set along with the previously released Birthday Friends and Koala Friends Stamp Sets.
I also used the Layered Roads Stencil Pack again (along with some Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink) to create my road. For my background, I combined a blend of Picked Raspberry, Salvaged Patina, and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Inks. I once again used Copic Markers to color my images.
Copic Colors Used:
- Pinks: RV02, RV52, RV55, RV66
- Black: W3, W5, W7
- Koala Bears: W00, W1, W3, W5
- Teals: G000, BG11, BG13, BG49
- Purples: BV000, BV01, BV04, BV13
