Pretty Pink Posh January Release

Good morning! Today is release day at Pretty Pink Posh and the first release for 2020 is now available in the shop!

January is also Pretty Pink Posh's anniversary, so starting Monday, January 13, we've got some fun celebrations planned, including giveaways, discount codes, free gifts and a blog hop to show you the newest products, and give you tons of inspiration!

This simple card shows one of the best qualities of photopolymer stamps, especially if they are long and narrow like this row of hearts from Love Borders, and the sentiment from Pond Friends - they can bend!

I started with the row of hearts. I put a panel of white cardstock in my MISTI and then I put a piece of acetate over top. This allowed me to curve that row of hearts the way I wanted it to, and it kind of 'stuck' in place on the acetate while I picked it up with my MISTI door. Then I stamped one row, moved the panel up by 1/4 inch and stamped again, then moved and stamped, moved and stamped until I had 5 rows of hearts.

Then I lined up the sentiment in the same way, so that it curved underneath the curved row of hearts and stamped it with black ink.

Before I coloured the hearts, I went around the left side of each heart with a gray Copic marker to make them look like they are popped up. Then, I chose a rainbow of Copic markers and went from darkest at the bottom to lightest at the top - yes, that means I used 45 different markers on this! I made it easier by starting in the centre and then working out left and right, and colouring the rainbow symmetrically, if you know what I mean.

Finally I added little dots with a white gel pen to look like 'shine' and added some Sparkling Clear Confetti sequins.

  1. What a stunning card Ardyth - love how you have used the stamp to achieve that wonderful curved rainbow - and a stunning use of colour too
