Pretty Pink Posh | 9th Birthday Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY

February 11, 2023

Hello friends! Come hop along with us for the last day of the Pretty Pink Posh 9th Birthday Blog Hop Celebration! I have created a fun birthday card to share with you featuring items from this amazing new release!

Check out my quick video clip below to see how easy it is to add a gift card to the gift card bag!

My card today showcases the new Gift Card Bag Dies along with the Birthday Signs and Birthday Balloons Stamp Sets. I adhered these items to an ink-blended A2 sized white card base that I had masked with some masking tape before blending with some Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink. I love the clean edges that the masking tape provides when ink blending. I added some spatters of diluted Copic Opaque White Paint for some added interest.

All of my images were stamped onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Sketch Markers. I used the coordinating die-namics to cut them out and added them to my card with some 3d foam adhesive to give them some added depth.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Teals: G000, G02, BG23, BG18
  • Tiger: 0, W00, W1, W3, W5


PRIZES: be sure to leave comments on each stop. Pretty Pink Posh is giving away 8 $25 gift certificates to eight random comments (2 winners each day) left before February 15, 2023 at 11:59 PM PST. Winners will be announced on the Pretty Pink Posh Blog next week, so be sure to return there and see if you are one of the winners!
