Welcome to the November Product Release Blog Hop for Pretty Pink Posh, you should have arrived from the beautiful Laura Bassen, if you have lost your way, I will have links at the bottom of this post for you to follow along..

So we are here again sharing another amazing release for Pretty Pink Posh and I know Paulina has been working hard behind the scenes to bring you this awesome release…

I begin with a cute Winter Wonderland scene..

Choosing images from the Winter Wonderland stamp set, stamping these out and colouring in, die cutting and setting aside..

I then die cut into a trimmed piece of white card stock using the Storybook 2 die, with the inner sections of the panel, I took snowflake stamps from the Holiday Greetings, stamping and embossing with white embossing powder, then adding blue ink over the top to create an emboss resist..

On the larger panel I stamped a sentiment from the Holiday Greetings and then started to assemble my card..

I finished this card off by adding another sentiment stamped at the base of the card from the Holiday Greetings and some sequins from the Limited Edition Starry mix

Now my second card, hasn’t quite turned out what was in my head but going to share it with you anyways and I do apologise for the blurry look as my camera was having a problem focusing, I think the vellum was throwing it off..

With this card, I took images from the beautiful Wild Rose stamp set, stamped and emboss with Silver Embossing Powder onto vellum, die cutting out and setting aside..

I then took the Scallop Frames die and ran it through die cutting into white card stock, the inner part to this panel I added 2 shades of pink ink, adding both these to the card base, with the frame itself adding foam tape to add dimension..

I placed my vellum flowers and leaves to the bottom left hand corner of the card and went back to the die cutting machine, to which I die cut several layers of card stock using the Thank You Script die..

Adding the Thank You to the right hand corner of the card…

Completing this card by adding sequins from the Berry mix..

  • Robyn Marshall

    I love both cards, but the first one is so delightful to me. I guess it’s because I’m in the holiday spirit. As for your thank you card, I also think it’s wonderful. It’s okay if it didn’t come out like you imagined, because the sentiment outweighs the decoration. Too few people really show their gratitude, so any thank you card is lovely, in my book.ReplyCancel

That time of the month again where MFT start the sharing of the latest release, cannot believe we are now into November, where the heck has this year gone, it certainly went fast..I am not ready for Christmas…

So with that being said, it is time to share Day 5 of the November Release Countdown..

I chose to use the sweetest set ever called You Make My Heart Melt, stamping out the images I wanted to use and colouring with Copics, die cutting out and setting aside..

I then started to work on the background, taking a piece of white card stock, I took the snowflake stamps from the same stamp set, stamping over the background and embossing with White Embossing Powder..

I then applied Blue Breeze and Berrylicious inks over the top to create an emboss resist effect..

Needing a snowbank, I took the Hit the Slopes die and die cut a snowbank out of white card stock…on this card stock I added a stamped heart that looked as though the little critters had created in the snow or ice…I embossed this with Silver Embossing Powder..

I assembled my card by adding the snowbank to the bottom of the inked panel, then the little images..

Finishing off the card by adding a stamped sentiment, adding this to the top of the card…

Time to head over to the MFT Blog and check out what the rest of the team have created..

Have a wonderful day, I will be back tomorrow for day 4…

Hope you are all having a great day…

Today sadly I return to work from holidays, all good things sadly must come to an end..

So it is time to knuckle down and get those last minute things done before I head into work, one of those was to share another guest post for Whimsy Stamps..

I am enjoying guesting for this lovely company, if you haven’t had a chance to check out their amazing range of stamps and dies then take a wander over to their SHOP and peruse the amazing collections..

Whilst you are having a look around, be sure to head to the BLOG too for loads of inspiration from their design team..

Seeing as Christmas is almost upon us again, super scary, I chose to create a card around the fun stamp called Christmas Elf, talk about cutie pie to colour up..

I then die cut around the stamped and coloured image and placed it onto some pattern paper..

I then went to the die cutting machine and in hand some white card stock that I ran through my die cutting machine several times die cutting the holly branch from the Christmas Branches set, adding each of these die cuts onto a panel of white card stock, giving the look of embossing…

I added my sweet little Christmas Elf and my card was complete..

I wanted to add a sentiment but felt the Elf himself could stand along and I could add a sentiment on the inside..

Once again, thank you Whimsy Stamps for having me again this month..I will be back with one last month in November…

Have a fabulous day!

Edit – to say a huge huge apologies, my blog once again did not send out my blooming post last night grrrr!!!, it is early hours here and I just checked the post, I just cannot believe it did it again…if anyone has any suggestions on a plugin that can be used to help scheduled posts be pushed out I am open for suggestions..

I hope you are all having a great day!

I will be in bed when this post goes live, but I am sure that you will absolutely love this weeks sketch challenge at MFT, we are currently up to number 356..

I kept mine pretty simple, by die cutting the word Celebrate several times out of white card stock, with the top layer of card stock, I blended Blue Breeze and Cornflower inks, then ran it through the die cutting machine, I adhered each of the layers together to form dimension..

I stamped a sentiment onto another piece of white card stock that I die cut from Rectangle Word Frames, stamping the sentiment from the More Essential Sentiments..

Next, I die cut some glittery stars, using the dies from the Inside & Out Stitched Stars and die cutting 3 stars from the Silver Sparkle Card Stock..

Last bit of die cutting was to die cut a white panel out of the A2 Rectangle Stax..

I then went about adhering each of the elements to match the sketch and completed my card by adding Navy sequins to one side that also matched the sketch..

Be sure to swing past HERE to check out what the rest of the team have created and for information on how you can enter for a chance to win..

Thanks for stopping by..

I hope you are all enjoying your day and are having some crafty time as well..

For me, I am have a quiet day, maybe a little IKEA building of new storage units, the craft room is in it’s first stage of a change, hoping to have it complete sometime next year, but as we all know it is always a work in progress..

While I am sitting here with a cuppa I wanted to pop in and share a Halloween creation I made about a week ago for Pretty Pink Posh..

Sadly, my poor Mum had a nasty fall and they thought she may have broken her hip, thankfully she did not, but has taken a couple more falls since, so it has been rather stressful and worrying and that means that my crafting has had to take a back seat..

So without further a do, here is my creation using the sweet little Trick or Treat Friends..

I took out the images that I wished to work with and placed them all in my Mini Misti, stamped them all in one go, coloured them in with Copics and ran the images through the die cutting machine in one pass..setting aside..

Whilst still at the die cutting machine, I took some Steel Grey card stock and die cut the Scallop Hexagons several times, adhering each of the hexagons together to form dimension, I ran the Scallop Hexagons through the machine again but with white card stock and taking the inner part of that card stock, I applied Grape Jelly ink…

Once I was happy with the inked panel, I flicked some water and adhered all of these pieces to a white card base..

Adding my images and completing the card by adding a stamped sentiment, some Metallic Gold Confetti and a strip of purple card stock at the base of the card..

As I have said before we here in Australia don’t really celebrate Halloween, some people over the later years have started to have a little fun with the night, but it is few and far between, however I must admit I do enjoy creating some cards for the occasion..

Well I am off to finish this cuppa and get the hand screw driver out and see if I can do this building, wish me luck because I am hopeless at building…





  • Tara Prince

    Adorable little witch!ReplyCancel

  • janet

    Adorable card Joy! Good luck with your building, lol! It will be worth the effort. Looking forward to seeing your new crafty space :-)ReplyCancel


Super excited to bring you this post for the Collaboration between MFT and Ellen Hutson for the United we Flourish..

I love that this campaign is happening because this community of crafters and companies is simply amazing, talented, generous and caring community..without the amazing companies that design fabulous products for designers and customers to create with, this community would not be where it was and on the other hand having this has brought together many people around the world to become friends, crafters and a caring and supportive place in the world of crafting, long let it live…

So today MFT and Ellen Hutson are sharing projects from their design teams using the Good Friends set in which you can purchase directly from Ellen Hutson..

I chose as always if you don’t know my style by now, very simple and let my sweet little cat and dog that I had stamped out and coloured with Copics shine..

I took some white card stock that I blended some Summer Splash ink onto and die cut using the A2 Rectangle Stax 2 set, stamping a sentiment towards the top of the inked panel and adding my little images..

Working out I needed one more image so I stamped a balloon from Adorable Elephants, coloured with Copics, die cut out and added it to the cat as if he was holding a balloon..

I added a strip of pattern paper from the Party Patterns, in which I die cut a grass feature out of Spring Scene Builder..

Completing this card by adding a mat behind the main image die cutting another piece of pattern paper from the Party Patterns using the A2 Rectangle Stax 2 set..

To know more about the United we Flourish and check out what the rest of the MFT and Ellen Hutson team have created be sure to click on each of the companies names..

Have a wonderful time viewing so many inspiring creations..
