Hello everyone! Lexa here today with two cards featuring some of Pretty Pink Posh new release. Let’s begin with the first card I made.
I start my card with an idea of a night sky in mind, so I created one using Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor. I use some blue, purple and black paints. I love how vibrant and gorgeous this watercolor is, I finished my night sky with some white paint splatter. To create some tree’s silhouettes I stamped the trees from Winter Friends with Black Soot Distress Ink and fill them with black watercolor paint. After all the paints dried up, I add some Texture Paste along with SSS Falling Snow Stencil upside down. I stamped the plane (Fly Away Friends) and a penguin with Versafine Black Ink and watercolor them using Distress Markers. It looks so adorable on the plane, don’t you agree? I created the fishtail banner using some strip of leftovers and blended Seedless Preserves Distress Ink and white embossed the sentiment.
Here’s a closer look of my first card, I add some shimmer using the Gansai Tambi watercolor but it’s so hard to capture it on a picture. I never forget the PPP Sparkling Clear Sequins, the love is real. Hehe. Let’s go to my second card which screams summer!
For my second card, I got my inspiration from both of my kids who really really love to play sand whenever we go to the beach. This time I created a window card with a little surprise inside. This popular set from PPP is a real deal, it’s super cute! Summer Friends stamp set has really cute beach elements that everyone needs. I stamped all the images with Versafine Black Ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers. I created the sand hill with kraft cardstock and blended Tea Dye Distress Ink on the top part to create dimensions and shades. The Scallop Frames is just perfect for this card. I also die cut some clouds using Rainy Days Coordinating Dies in two sizes and it completes the beach scene. Not forget mentioning my most favorite crab from Sea Friends to accompany the little girl in the front.
On inside I blended some Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Squeezed Lemonade, Tea Dye) to create a little scene and of course the sky for both outside and inside’s scenes. I also stamped the sentiment “You Are My Favorite” from Friends Forever Stamp Set.
Look who are waiting for you inside? They represent both of my son and daughter as they play together and have fun on the beach. Oh, did you notice that I add a sun on the girl’s tee and some stripes for the boy’s? :) I really hope you guys like my cards, which one is your favorite? Let me know. Thank you so much for stopping by today and have a wonderful day!
