Rainbow Snow (Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop)

Welcome to Day 2 of the Pretty Pink Posh product release blog hop! Details are below.


I created a fun snow-storm card using the new Winter Borders stamp set and a fun embossing and ink-blending technique inspired by my friend Natalie Elphinstone.

I started by stamping the border stamp repeatedly, with embossing ink, before sprinkling white embossing powder over the top and heating it with my heat gun until it was melted and smooth.

Then I used some Post-it tape and a very easy trick to make perfectly straight, parallel ink-blended stripes. Here's a video to show you how I did it - and also a 2 for 1 set of inlaid die-cut cards as well!



BLOG HOP DETAILS:
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 10/22/2019. Winners will be announced on the PPP blog.
