Pretty Pink Posh | June Blog Hop- Day 2 + GIVEAWAY

June 17, 2022

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.

** Affiliated links were used where applicable at no extra cost to you. **

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

    The koalas in a toy truck remind me of my son when he was a toddler, sitting in his Tonka truck. These guys are so darned cute. And the sky is incredible. Nice job!
