Pretty Pink Posh October Release


The latest Pretty Pink Posh release is live now! We'll be having 2 days of blog hops with TONS of inspiration and prizes too, starting tomorrow.

I made this fun card with a couple of the new stamp sets - Holiday Signs, and Winter Borders.

I started by stamping the bottom row of penguins, masking the centre one so that the other two overlap a bit.

Then I measured how far up I would need to put the top penguin - I felt he should be 'in front' of the middle row. I masked him and the bottom penguins and stamped the two in the middle row.

I coloured all the hats green, to go along with the Christmas tree shape, and then coloured the trim in a rainbow of colours, kind of like ornaments.

I stamped all the messages on the signs, and then I created a negative mask for the sign, and stamped some snowflakes using one of the stamps from Winter Borders and grey ink, so that the sentiments would still be visible.


And this is my first Hanukkah card ever! I started by stamping and embossing the menorah and solid flames with Wow! Embossing ink and Silver Metallic embossing powder.

Once it was cool, I blended Fiesta Blue, Something Borrowed and Suede Shoes over top, fading out to the centre, to create a 'glow'. I trimmed it with a circle die, and then cut a slightly bigger circle, and embossed the edges with the same embossing powder, for a perfect match!

I inked the little Stars of David with Fiesta Blue and Something Borrowed ink and put them randomly on the white card base.

What a sweet penguin card Ardyth, but for me the Hanukkah card is absolutely stunning - dramatic, elegant and totally conveying the sense of deeply held beliefs in, and rituals of, the celebration
