Pretty Pink Posh STAMPS Release Hop!

Good morning! I'm so super excited to be joining in today with a very special release hop from Pretty Pink Posh - celebrating the first release of her very own stamp sets!!! There are also some super fun dies, new seed beads, and new sequin mixes! There are two days of blog hopping - and 2 $25 gift certificates being given away each day - so make sure and leave a comment on each stop along the hop - you could be the lucky winner!

You should have arrived here from Liz Sarkisyan and your next stop is Carissa Wiley, but if you just happened along the hop you can head back to the Pretty Pink Posh blog or check out the entire blog hop list at the bottom of this post.

I have two cards to share today, first up this one using the adorable new Winter Friends stamp set and coordinating dies, the new Woodlands Seed Beads, and a couple previously released dies and seed beads:


I originally stamped and watercolored the scene for this card, before deciding it needed some texture! I added some snow texture paste, and then eyed the seed beads and thought - why not? I covered the tree with a thick coat of Glossy Accents, then covered it with beads and pressed them in so they would stick well! Added some Marshmallow seed beads attached with tiny dots of adhesive, then die cut a border along the bottom  using Stitched Border Die 1 (in hindsight - that would have been easier BEFORE adding the beads! Heehee!) then attached the little bear friend and his hat with foam adhesive. Finished off with a bow using the amazing Twine and Bows die.


Here is a link to all the supplies used on this card:





Next up - the Rainy Days stamp set is SOOO cute! I can tell I'm going to be using this one a lot in rainy Washington State! This card happened very shortly after opening the package from Paulina full of goodies - I just randomly pulled out some ink colors and started stamping, really just playing, not planning on actually making a card, and before I knew it, I this finished card sitting in front of me! Don't you love when the stamps are just so cute, the card makes itself?!?!?


I used a few colors of SSS ink, added a stitched frame using the fun Scallop Frame die (which I can tell is going to be yet another favorite!), then added some of the cool Droplets - they make perfect raindrops, don't you think?


Here are all the linked supplies for this second card:





And, here is the entire blog hop line-up in case you get lost:

Thanks so much for stopping by today - and thanks to Paulina for allowing me to join the fun again! Can't wait to play with these more and more! Have a wonderful day everyone!!!
