Pretty Pink Posh March Release Blog Hop - Spring Greetings


Welcome to Day 1 of the Pretty Pink Posh March Release blog hop (full list below)! This release is just full of spring and Easter goodies - perfect timing!


At this point this pretty card is a bit of wishful thinking, but hopefully Spring will arrive here in Toronto very soon!

I created this with the new Spring Wreath set, using the wreath  in a different way, before filling the panel in with the other stamps from the set, to create an all-over pattern. Then I quickly coloured it with Copic markers.

I used Scallop Squares as a frame and one of the tags from Stitched Labels 1 for my sentiment strip, along with the new Friendship Mix sequins.

Here's a video with stamping and quick-colouring tips!




Here's the full blog list! There are 4 $25 gift certificates up for grabs (two winners each day). Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop. Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PST on 3/13/2019. Winners will be announced on the PPP blog.
