Floral Pretty Pink Posh

Hello, everyone! It’s Marge here with you today and I’m so happy to share my cards featuring some of gorgeous Pretty Pink Posh Products. I made two floral cards and each was made with different coloring medium.

The first one is a no-line Copic coloring card. To begin, I stamped blossoms and leaves from Cherry Blossom Stamp Set as well as hummingbirds from Hummingbird Thanks Stamp Set on a sheet of Neenah Solar 80lb paper using a Distress ink, Antique Linen. Then I colored the images using Copic markers. After I finished Copic coloring, I gave them more details using Prismacolors Polychromo pencils.

Here are Copic Markers I used:
Blossom: RV25,RV23,RV21,RV11,RV00, Y38
Leaves: G28,G07,G14,YG03,YG01,BG 49, BG45, BG18, BG15, BG13
Hummingbirds: R85,R83,R81 / Y38,Y17,Y15,Y11/ E57,E55,E53 , Blue and Green colors are the same as of Leaves.

  • Tip: When I do no line coloring, I usually color dark shades first to figure out the outlines then I blend them out by using lighter colors one by one. I also found that adding pencils on Copic coloring look better than just pencil coloring alone, no matter how your Copic colored base is rough.

I then cut the images using the Cherry Blossom Coordinating Die Set.
Next, I trimmed a yellow gingham pattern paper to 4.25×5.5 inch, made a large window using Stitched Duo 3 die. I adhered an acetate film on the back side of it to use it as a front panel for a shaker.

To make a background for a shaker, I cut a white cardstock in 4.25×5.5 inch, stamped a sentiment from Encouraging Greetings using the previous front panel as a guide to position the sentiment.

The next is my favorite moment, mixing sequins and seed beads to put in the shaker! I really love this process and I always enjoy mixing various ones according to the color schemes of a card. For this, I put Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix, Seed Beads (Daffodil, Lilac, Spring Green, Gold Shimmer), Pink Blush Jewels and Buttercream Jewels together into the shaker.
Tip: When I make shaker cards, I usually mix sequins and seed beads together as the seed beads give the shaker more interesting look and sounds!

After I assembled the shaker, I adhered it onto a card base made from Neenah White 110lb, then I adhered previously colored images on the top and bottom of the card as shown here. I finished off the card by adding Pink Blush Jewels and Buttercream Jewels which are my favorite colors of jewels. I really love the iridescent look that the Jewels give.

  • Tip: The jewels are basically translucent, above all, the Buttercream Jewels have the most neutral color so they look very well on any colors of cards, which is why I use Buttercream frequently in my cards.

Now let’s move on to the second card I made using watercoloring. To begin, I stamped Cherry Blossom images on a piece of 140lb cold pressed watercolor paper using Versamark ink, then heat embossed them using white embossing powder.

I watercolored them using Daniel Smith Watercolor Paints, then cut them all using Cherry Blossom Coordinating Die Set. Daniel Smith Watercolors I used are : Quinacridone Coral, Quinacridone Violet, Permanent Alizarin Crimson, Quinacridone Gold, Sap Green, and Prussian Green.

For a background panel of this card, I trimmed dark green Midnight cardstock into 4.25×5.5inch, cut out a semi-round window of it using Window Frames Die set. I stamped a sentiment from Encouraging Greetings on the center of semi-round cut, then heat-embossed it in white. Then I splattered white Gouache all over the panel.

Next, I rounded two strings of twines (Natural and Ivory) around the outer frame panel, tied a bow, then I foam mounted it onto an A2 sized card base using foam tapes.

I adhered the inner semi-round cut flat to give the card some dimension. I adhered blossoms and leaves using glue and foam tapes as shown in the picture, then I finished off the card by adding Pink Blush Jewels, Buttercream Jewels, and Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix.

  1. Gorgeous cards and I love the little humming birds and the pink on black. I don’t think that I would have thought to put the two colors together, but it is stunning. Thanks for sharing.
