Pretty Pink Posh June 2019 Product Release Blog Hop

Good morning,
Welcome to Day 1 of Pretty Pink Posh June 2019 Product release Blog Hop! We are jam packed with whole bunch of Summer elements in this release. You could have a whole tropical scene on your card or project simply putting them together. I easily made 3 cards for the inspirations
<Card 1>

For my first card, I just wanted all. So I made a shaker card. I ink blended an A2 sized watercolor paper with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Mustard Seed and Worn lipstick. Then I cut the front panel using Tropical Frame Die out a piece of white card stock paper and lightly ink blended with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Cracked Pistachio. I stamped the sentiment “aloha” onto the background piece and poured a whole bunch of Citrus Jewel Mix, then I enclose this shaker window by adding a piece of acetate underneath the front panel and attached it onto the background piece with Foam tapes.

Then I stamped images from Hibiscus Flowers Stamp setTropical Birds Stamp set and Tropical Toucans Stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Neenah Solar White 80lbs card stock paper and die cut them with the Coordinating Dies (Hibiscus Flower / Tropical Birds / Tropical Toucans). I then colored them with my trusty Copic markers. I attached them onto the top of my card using Multi Medium Matte and Foam tape to finish this card.


<Card 2>

Who said elephant cannot surf? Everyone could do everything in our card world!For my second card, I used old and new products. I first stamped selected images from Summer Surf Boards Stamp set, Tropical Birds Stamp set and Elephant Friends Stamp set. After I colored them with Coipc markers, I die cut them with the Coordinating Dies (Summer Surf Boards / Tropical Birds / Elephant Friends).

Pretty Pink Posh started to have stencil products. I masked my A2 sized watercolor paper using Wave Stencil and ink blended with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in  Squeezed Lemonade, Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feather. Then I die cut the center of this inked background with Scallop Circles Die. I flipped the center negative cut out part over and ink blended it with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feather to create the scene background.

I added Foam stripes underneath the scalloped circle part to create better dimension. Then I attached my colored images within the circle background. At last, I stamped the sentiment “hi” from Everyday Greetings Stamp set.

<Card 3>

For my last card, I ink blended an A2 sized watercolor paper with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Squeezed Lemonade, Worn Lipstick and Wilted Violet. Then I cut couple pieces vellum using Scallop Borders Die. I attached them to both side of my prepped background using Multi Medium Matte, Since the glue dries with matte finish, it is not very noticeable.

I stamped all images from Tropical Toucans Stamp set and cut out with the Coordinating Dies. Then I colored them with copic markers. I attached colored images onto the background using glue and Foam tapes.I stamped the sentiment “You Can Do It!” that comes in the same stamp set and embellished my card with Pansy Purple and Marigold Jewels.
