Hi Again

Back again tonight to bring you a fun Blog Hop for Pretty Pink Posh

So excited that people have been purchasing the new product, as it is stinkin cute…I am wrapped to be able to share my projects with you all…

As this is a blog hop, you should have arrived from the amazingly talented Suzy, if you have lost your way I will have a list at the bottom of this post..

Before we get started on my projects I wanted to mention that 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 5/17/2017. Winners will be announced on the PPP blog..Make sure to comment along the way for your chance to win..

My first project for you all is one that is super casual, yet packs a punch of elegance…

I chose to work with the Bold Blooms stamp and die set, embossing the flowers and leaves with white embossing powder and colouring each with Zig Real Brush Color Markers..

Adding these to a piece of white card stock trimmed slightly smaller then the card front, adding as partial wreaths and in the centre embossing a sentiment from the Thoughtful Greetings with silver embossing powder..

Completing this card, by adding scatterings of Mini Sparkling Clear Flowers

The next card for you was the uber sweet critters and flowers, stamping out from the Bee Friends and Woodland Critters, colouring these up with Copics, die cutting and setting aside..

Trimming a piece of white card stock slightly smaller then the card front, adding some Mermaid ink to the centre of this card stock, once I was happy with the blending, I die cut the bottom edge of this card stock using the Scallop Borders 2 die..

On the bottom part of the card, I adhered some pattern paper and then added my blended piece of card stock..

I added my images and stamped a sentiment from the Thoughtful Greetings stamp set to complete the card…

It is time to now head on over to Laurie’s blog to see what fabulous projects she has install for you..

If you have lost your way, below is the list of participants..

Thanks for stopping by today, I look forward to bringing more projects using the new release products..

Tonight is the start of a new Color Challenge for MFT and we are now up to 69 with a super fun colour combo..

If you are after more inspiration or wishing to participate, just click HERE..

I chose to create an embossed background of white on white, stamping the Floral Fantasy Background and once embossed I took Ripe Raspberry and Cotton Candy inks and applied the inks to give a ombre look to the background, once I was happy with the look, I die cut a panel with stitching from the Blueprints 29 and adhered this to the front of the card base..

Next, was to work on the rest of the colours from the combo, that were Steel Grey and Safety Orange, this time die cutting 2 sentiment banners from Blueprints 29, on the Steel Grey Banner, I stamped and embossed a sentiment from Essential Sentiments, adhering both of these colours together and then to the card front…

Lastly, I wanted to add a little softness to the card, so I took some Vellum and die cut a butterfly from the Flutter of Butterflies Lace and Solid, adhering these together and adding this to the sentiment strips..completing the card by adding some Clear Sequins..

I hope you enjoy viewing this card and find some inspiration, looking forward to seeing what you create..









Hey there

Popping in really quickly tonight to share the latest card I created for this weeks sketch challenge at MFT..

There is still time and if you are interested in playing along or viewing some wonderful inspiration you can do so HERE

I love the simplicity of this sketch and there are so many possibilities…

I chose to create with the Farm-tastic stamp and die set, pairing with More Essential Sentiments and Blueprints 29..

I took some white card stock and using the Blueprints 29 I used the Stitched Rectangle die and die cut the white card stock, I added to this card stock by trimming a piece of pattern paper from the Farm Fresh Gingham pattern paper and added this to a Cement Gray card..

Working on the rest of the card, I die cut Kraft Card stock using the Farm Fence Die, adding this to the top part of the card…

Then I moved onto colouring the tractor that I stamped out from Farm-tastic stamp set with Copics and die cut out with matching die, adding this under the fence and then to complete the card and matching the sketch, I took one of the sentiment banners from the Blueprints 29, die cutting from Black Licorice card stock, stamping and embossing a sentiment from More Essential Sentiments and the card was complete..

Thanks for stopping by today..










I have something a little different tonight to share with you all…

I love all types of creative art and love to follow and be inspired, hoping one day that I could learn a new art…

Just recently I stumbled accidentally onto a water colour artist by the name of Polina Bright, she totally  caught my eye and to my surprise she was an Australian based artist..

I started to follow her on Instagram, then went to her website to check out her Store…wasn’t I WOWED!!! by her exceptional talent…so much so I went ahead and purchased one of her gorgeous prints from her original works..

I purchased this sweet Princess Mia for a friend of mine that recently had a beautiful baby girl, of course I was waiting for her to receive before doing this blog post..

I think it is important to keep the industry of creativity alive and encourage each other to be more creative and inspire others..

This industry is a beautiful, caring and passionate industry and one that I am pleased to be apart of, I am also honoured and delighted to have made many friendships in my journey…

Thank you Polina for the most beautiful print, I look forward to following more of your journey…



The day has come for you to open those purses and start your shopping at MFT, how exciting, such a great release this month and I just know you will love it too..

Have fun shopping and if you are a little lost, you can head right HERE for the new release products…

I have a fun card today for you all, using the Seaside Seagulls and Ocean Waves along with older sets, Wonky Stitched Rectangles and Otterly Love You..

I stamped out my little seagulls and my little rock from the Otterly Love You stamp set, coloured in with Copics, die cutting them and setting aside to work on the rest of the card..

Die cutting some white card stock with the Wonky Stitched Rectangles, using the same die to also die cut some pattern paper from Watercolor Wash..

Once each of the pattern papers were die cut, I ran them through the die cutting machine again, this time cutting waves using the Ocean Waves die, adding each of these to the white card stock..

I added a sentiment to the top of the white card stock, then my images along with some die cut vellum clouds..

I then took more pattern paper from Sweet Sunshine paper pad, adding a strip to the base of the card along with some twine, then added my next panel on top and my card was complete..

Thank you for everyone who passed by my blog this month and left wonderful comments that made my day..

For loads more inspiration be sure to check the MFT blog..

Hello Again

Beautiful day here at the cottage and a nice relaxing one before I start work..

So today we inch even closer to your shopping spree at MFT..

Have you had a chance to check out all the inspiration from the Design Team this month, if not you can do so HERE..

I share a card with you today that features the previous months Card Kit stamps and dies called Doodled Blooms, matching this with the latest Cover Up called Bold Stripes and then with an older stamp and die set called Funky Flowers..

So I wanted to create a shaker for this card, so I took some white card stock and ran it through my die cutting machine, die cutting the Bold Stripes Cover Up die, setting up the back with some foam tape and acetate and setting aside..I then went about trimming a piece of white card stock and applied Persimmon Ink, tapering off to create an ombre effect..

To seal up the shaker, I had to add my sequins, so I added some Clear, Gold and Silver Seed Beads and then added the blended background..

Once the shaker was complete, I then worked on creating the floral cluster, by stamping out the flowers and leaves onto Vellum and embossing with white embossing powder, die cutting these out and adding these to my card..

Using one of the left over strips from the Bold Stripes die cut, I embossed a sentiment from the More Essential Sentiments stamp set and added this to my card and my creation was complete..

I look forward to bringing my last card for the month with you all tomorrow, but for now I hope you enjoy all the inspiration..

Have a great day!
