Pretty Pink Posh | August Release Blog Hop – Day 3

August 9, 2023

Hello friends! Welcome to day 3 of the Pretty Pink Posh August 2023 Release Blog Hop! I have two projects to quickly share with you featuring items from the newest release. Come hop along for a chance to win 1 of 3 $30 Pretty Pink Posh Gift Certificates!

For my first card, I combined the previously released Ghost Friends Set with the newly released Decorative Pumpkins and Halloween Signs Stamp Sets. I also added my large scripted sentiment using the new Spooky Wishes Shadow Die.

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

I stamped all of my images onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored them with Copic Markers. For my card background, I lightly blended a small section with some Wild Honey Distress Oxide Ink. I then added my sentiment that I had die cut from both white and black card stock pieces and adhered my images with some 3D foam adhesive tape for extra dimension.

For my second card, I combined the Halloween House Die Set along with both the Halloween Signs and Ghost Friends Stamp Sets. To create my haunted house, I simply die cut it from a piece of black card stock and then adhered it to a 4″x5.25″ piece of light gray card stock. Next, I die cut it again from some white card stock and then colored the windows with some orange and yellow copic markers (YR07, Y19, Y13) to look as if there were candles or lights on inside the house.

Lastly, I added my images with some more 3D foam adhesive tape so that my ghosts were popped up from the house.
