Stencilled flowers for Mom – Pretty Pink Posh

Hello Everyone,

I am back again with my last Mother’s Day card this year dedicating this one to ALL supermoms out there. Being a mother is the biggest blessing and the best gift which comes with an emotional extra package (expanding with the years). I am grateful every single day to have my kids and experiencing the unconditional love which I feel for them and they feel for me.

For my card today I used the pretty Peonies stencil from Pretty Pink Posh: on a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock I inkblended Kitch Flamingo Distress Oxide ink for the flowers first. I simply turned the stencil around and masked off the leaves with post it tape to make sure I dont accidentaly go over the unnecessary open areas.

When I was happy with the arrangemet of the flowers I created masks for them from Masking Paper and covered each flower. Now it was time to add leaves with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink. After removing the masks I added some splatters with my Finetec Mica Pearlescent Watercolours, I chose the dark pink and black this time.

When the panel was dry I cut it down a bit and added a vivid green mat under it. I also die cut a skinny gold frame with my old favourite Frames die set from Simon Says Stamp. I adhered it i place with drops of liquid glue. I usually use Ranger Multi Matte Medium with a precision tip for this.

The sentiment I die cut from pink cardstock with the Pretty Pink Posh Mother’s Day die. I added a white heat embossed “happy” on a tiny piece of black cardstock to it using 3D foam squares.

As a finishing touch I added dots with a black glaze pen to the flower centers, it makes them really pop!

I will upload this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Feminine and to the Simon Says Stamp IG Challenge Favourite Technique (stenciling is also a favourite technique of mine).

I hope you enjoyed this floral inspiration and will pop in again soon for more cheerful designs.

See you,

Bunny with flowers – Pretty Pink Posh

Hello Everyone,

While I am waiting for the new release from Pretty Pink Posh to arrive, I was playing with some of my favourites from the previous ones. I have created a cute card with Bunny Friends and Mother’s Day stamp sets.

First I stamped the images and coloured them with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out. I made sure to have some extra little flowers and leaves to make the bouquets even bigger. We can never have too many flowers for Mom, right?

I die cut a piece of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock with the Diagonal Stitched Rectangle die from MFT. It is an old favourite of mine, adds the perfect amount of detail to any project. I adhered it to a top folding A2 sized card which I previously covered with a rainbow striped patterned paper from Doodlebug design.

I assembled my little scene and popped up the bunny with 3D foam squares. I covered the vases with glossy accents, it gives a lovely shiy and raised look, I love it! I also used a black glaze pen on the flower centres.

For the sentiment I chose the Pretty Pink Posh Happy Mother’s Day Script die and die cut the Happy part 3 times from pink cardstock. I layered them on top of each other and adhered it under the bunny.

The rest of the sentiment I white heat embossed on a very thin piece of black cardstock. The sentiment is from the Heffy Doodle Classic sentiments set. I used 3D foam squares under it to stand out more.

I will upload this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Feminine and to the Simon Says Stamp IG Challenge Favourite Technique (“rainbow everything” is a technique right?)

I hope you enjoyed this cute little inspiration and will pop in again for more cheerful designs.

See you,

Mother’s Day Inspiration – #1

Hello Everyone,

Mother’s Day is this Sunday in Hungary and the next one in the US so I thought I would do a mini series with some pretty and fun ideas for the upcoming event. I hope you will enjoy what I prepared for you.

Today I have a pretty slimline card made with one of my favourite stamps from Pretty Pink Posh. I stamped the bouquet from Mother’s Day twice and coloured them with Copic markers. I used a colourless blender to add the striped pattern to the vases, it is so fun! I cut them out with the coordinating die.

Then I die cut te scalloped rectangle from the Slimline Frames and Portholes die from Newton’s Nook Designs using pink cardstock and the frame from the Slimline Frames and Windows die set from yellow cardstock. I used a floral patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs for the inside little squares. To have some instant dimension I tripled up the frame, I love the look!

On the middle little square I white heat embossed the sentiment and popped up the vases with 3D foam squares.

As a finishing touch I used a black glaze pen and a white gel pen on the flowers and a bit of glossy accents in the centres.

I hope you enjoyed today’s slimline inspiration and will pop in again soon!

See you,

Zsofi

Halloween Card Series 2018 – Day 6

Hello Everyone,

I am back with the 6th Halloween card in a raw…I hope you enjoy my series and getting in the mood for Halloween.

Today I want to show you cute shaker card made with Pretty Pink Posh stamps and dies.

HalloweenCardSeries_PPP_zsm02IG

As always I stamped and coloured the images from the PPP Halloween Pals stamp set first, then cut them out with their coordinating dies. I die cut a stitched rectangle from black cardstock and then I ran it through the Big Shot with PPP Stitched Pieces die. I die cut another stitched rectangle from light green cardstock as the backing for my shaker.

I temporarily placed the black frame on top of the green rectangle to see where I should stamp the sentiment. After stamping it in black, I added a piece of acetate to the back of the frame, and used Darice thin 3D foam strips to create the shaker.

I filled it with a sequin mix from Lucy’s Little Things (that is the only Halloween mix I own, what a shame!) Then I removed carefully the backing of the foam strips and adhered the backing.

I cut a piece of patterned paper from the Doodlebug Booville paper pad to cover an A2 sized card and adhered the shaker to it. I added the cute images around, added some white gel pen details, covered their hats with Tonic Aqua shimmer pen and used glossy accents to emphasize some parts of the images.

I will link this project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge  and Wednesday Challenge (Halloween/Spooky).

I hope you liked today’s inspiration and you will come back tomorrow for something new!
