PPP September Release Hop - Christmas Fun!




Good morning! Super excited this morning to be hopping along on Day 1 of the Pretty Pink Posh September Release Blog Hop! This release has everything for the upcoming holidays - tons of adorable stamps, some lovely new dies, and of course a few new sparkly embellishments!


I have two cards to share today using some of the new goodies - first up, a cool wintery Christmas card featuring one of my favorites from the new release - Reindeer Friends! I just can't get over their cuteness!


For my card, I colored them up with Copics and cut them out with their coordinating Reindeer Friends Dies. I also added some accents with a white gel pen to help them pop a bit more. I then die cut Storybook 5 from a piece of white cardstock to build a shaker element, then blended two tones of distress ink on my white cardbase after masking off the edges so they would stay white. I stamped a sentiment from Holiday Greetings (last years holiday free with purchase set - it will be available to purchase this November!) inside the bottom window, then filled the top portion with the new Metallic Silver Confetti Mix. So sparkly and fun - and I love the unexpectedly cooler colors on this as well!


And then my second card...this one has a little bit of a SUPER exciting announcement with it! I don't know if you saw in the recent Pretty Pink Posh newsletter - but along with fellow DT member and friend Crystal Thompson, I will be teaching a special PPP Card Class at Impress featuring this and THREE other fun cards! If you are in the Seattle area I hope I get to see you there! 


This uses the darling new Angel Friends and the fun and unique new Tic Tac Toe Die Set all in a cute little shaker card!
