Pretty Pink Posh - New Shopping Site

Hello Everyone....

Paulina, the owner of Pretty Pink Posh has finally opened her new store site and ready to go.
For the debut of the new store she is having a promo that expired Feb. 5.
Don't forget to take advantage of it....she have new pretty cool colors sequins and other new fab products she added too. You can check it all at

Because of this the team has created special project(s) just for the new store site.
Here's what I came inspire you :)

For my first card I use the Wplus9 Paisley Patterns again....really enjoying this stamp set.
Oh...also entering this at
Wplus9 Monday Mood Board #26 too.

To begin: I first stamp my image on the panel, then cut the bottom where my image stopped.

These are the elements I used not sequins not included in the photo:
For the wood panel I used...the wood pattern paper from Crate Paper, I attached it hanging a little on the edge of the stamped panel, then cut again.

After cutting my pieces, I then attached the Marshmallow sequins from Pretty Pink Posh in line at the top of my card, and some on the image it as well.

At the bottom of my card you can see the wood pattern paper cut to mimic the cut stamped image on the edge to add dimension on my stamped image.  
The sentiment "Thank You" is from the Wplus9 Fanciful Feather stamp set. 
Also added some Marshmallow sequins and pearl rhinestones at the bottom to finish the card.

Here's the full look of this card.

Wplus9 Monday Mood Board

For my second card: 
I first distress my card base with Distress ink using the Ranger Worn Lipstick. I then
cut another panel using the Mama Elephant Creative Cuts Femme Frames

For the sentiment "a little something to brighten your day" I used the 
Wplus9 Blanket Stitched Blooms stamp set.

I then cut my Lawn Fawn Puffy Star die to create my star window, where I added different color sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to create my shaker card. 

The cute image is from Mama Elephant Cosmic Stars. The random stars you see on top and on the side of my card is from the new line of stamp set by Winnie & Walter Scenery: Big Bang Confetti stamp set.
I added some pearls with my star image on the top and on the side to finish it off.

Here's the full view of my second card.

CAS(E) this Sketch #63

Hello...hello its another week to start off with

For the sketch here's what I came up with.
For my images I use the stamp set from Wplus9 Paisley Patterns.  I really love this set,
its just so many possibilities to make your own color combination.

1. I first create a panel same size as my A2 card and embossed it with 

Sizzix Large Embossing Folder TROPICAL PAISLEY FLOWERS  then adhere on my card base.

2. Next, I cut another panel for my card then stamped my images from Wplus9 Paisley Patterns using different PTI colored ink pads. Raspberry Fizz, Summer Sunrise, Hawaiian Shores, Limeade Ice, Fine Linen, and Memento Nautical Blue.

3. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from Avery Elle Circle It with Versamark and gold embossed it using Ranger Gold Embossing Powder on the vellum.

4. I just folded my vellum piece on my stamped paisley pattern, then adhere it with foam tape to finish my card.

These are just the pieces...

Here's the look of the full card.

I hope you enjoyed my take :)

Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop 2014

Hello There.....
I'm just popping in to participate on the

For the love of pink, here's what I came up with....

1. First I masked the portion of my panel then, stamped the leaves from PTI Meadow Greens in 
    Raspberry Fizz ink on a scrap paper first then stamp it again on my cut panel this time to get the soft pink 
2. After I got all my pink stamped then I did the same thing using Classic Kraft ink, stamped it first on the 
    scrap paper then stamped it on my panel.
3. I then die-cut the leaves image then stamped it the same way I did on my panel, stamped it first on the 
    scrap paper, then stamped it on my vellum die-cut to get the soft image. Just remember the PTI inks are
    pretty awesome using it on the vellum *wink*.
4. After all my images are stamped, I then feed it to the sewing machine to get some stitches.
5. Lastly I die-cut the Words Wonderful Thank You die on gold foil 3 times to then adhere, to get the raised look.

Just a different view of the card...

Here's the full look of the card

I hope you enjoyed my take.

Runway Inspired Challenge #52

Hello...hello...Its time for another  

Runway Inspired Challenged

This time the photo inspiration is from

don't you think?

For this challenge I created my own images using my cheap watercolor palette from Michaels.

Let me show you how I did it.

First, I want to say please forgive me if my video is shaking this is my very first video attempt, and I could not find my tripod and I really want to show you instead of getting shots of each step process. I have to hold the video while I paint at the same time....I hope its not too painful to watch :(
" Sorry for my daughter, she didn't know I was doing a video."

Nevertheless, I hope this help gives you an idea on how I did my water-coloring flower image technique :)

My short video...

For this card  I used the sentiment from Avery Elle Save the Date.
Oh...the cardstock I used for water-coloring is the one from Michaels from the Recollections brand. 110lbs. Its OK, the cardstock is pretty thick it managed to hold my ink together, though got a little warp but easy fixed :). I just used a score-tape when I adhere on my card base to minimize the warping.

Here's the look of the full card.    

I made another card using the watercolor technique, I added some pearls to finish of the card. The sentiment is from PTI Table Service.

Here's the look of the full card.    

I hope you guys enjoyed my projects :)

Thinking of You - Top Dog Dies Guest Designer

I am so excited to be Guest Designing at Top Dog Dies today.

Just a brief description of the company:

Top Dog Dies is a new online store that offers their own brand of wafer-thin and steel-rule dies, along with dies from brands you already know and trust, including My Favorite Things, Sizzix, Savvy Stamps and Cheery Lynn Designs. Top Dog Dies is also the leading U.S. retailer for Tattered Lace, a new line of intricate dies designed by U.K. designer Stephanie Weightman.

For this project I use the Top Dog Dies Circle Mini Album Die to create my card.

1.) I die-cut my cardstock using the cuttlebug. The sandwich I used: B plate + Circle Album die + B plate again and run it, then I get this perfectly cut album die.
2.) Next I embossed my front of my card with Stampendous Translucent Pearl embossing powder. I first stamped my image with Versamark ink and heat embossed the embossing power to get the look.

3.) For my circle die after embossing, I distress it with Momento Gray Flannel to get that grey nice look.
4.) Next I stamped my sentiment on the side of my card with Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate.
5.) I then splatter my circle die with Studio Calico Mr. Huey's Opaque White and Classic Tan. I made sure to not splatter the sentiment.
6.) Next after all my splatters are dry, I then score the side of my front card then added the hole to insert the ribbons.

7) To finish of my card I added all my elements that you see on the bottom pictures.

Other supplies from the photo below:
The rolled twine I made it myself using the Cosmo Cricket Glubers.
The glittered leaves was die-cut using Impression Obsession Branch die.
The Gold Foil die leaves was die-cut using the WPlus9 Folk Art Florals.
The Seam binding was from Martha Stewart Crafts.

The close-up.

Here's the look of the final card.

For my other project I used the Top Top Dies SnowFlake Trio.
Instead of using it as a snowflakes I used it as my flower for my Birthday tag instead.

Here are the supplies that I used, most of them I just got at the local crafts store
like the leaves, the brads, and the white seam binding.

1. First before I die-cut my snowflakes, I made sure I have a shim add, since these beautiful snowflake dies are intricate in details.
2. For my snowflakes I distress it with Ranger Distress Worn Lipstick ink.
3. Next I tied the seam binding on my tag I created, after stamping with WPlus9 Damask Delight.
4. The stamped banner is also from WPlus9 Basic Banners  I also stamped the sentiment that's in the set.
5. I then assemble all my elements for my tag.

Here's the full look of the tag using the Snowflake Trio.

I hope you enjoyed my projects using Top Tog Dies.

The Big, the Bold, and the Happy .
