Pretty Pink Posh September Release Blog Hop

Good morning! Today I'm helping to kick off the first day of a two day blog hop to celebrate the Pretty Pink Posh September Release! This release is HUGE and packed full of fun goodies - stamps, dies, new jewels - SOOO much fun! You can check out the entire release HERE. There is TONS of inspiration to be found along the blog hop - and a few fabulous giveaways as well!


Today I'm share a peek at two cards that will be part of a card class I'm teaching early next month at Impress Rubber Stamps in Tukwila, Washington on October 6th! Sooo...Seattle area locals, you can find info on how to sign up for the classes HERE - and these Pretty Pink Posh classes have been pretty popular in the past, so if you are interested, make sure and sign up soon! More info on the classes at the end of this post!


This first card (which will be part of the afternoon class) features the adorable new Fall Scene Stamp set - oh how I LOVE these sweet little critters playing in the leaves!!!


I added some of the new Espresso Jewels (I absolutely LOVE this new color!!!). I also used Stitched Borders 2 from a previous release for the border.


This second card uses the gorgeous new floral set, Anemones, and quite possibly my new favorite sentiment set - Simple Sayings: Kind.


I did some dual layer embossing on this, and blended Distress Inks over the top in some bright happy colors.


Finished off with some of the new Marigold Jewels (such a fun happy yellow color!) and a frame die cut using the older Scallop Frames dies.


Now - onto the class info! The Main Class will be in the afternoon from 2-4 PM and we will be making these FIVE autumn cards featuring lots of fun techniques including playing with alcohol inks, a shaker card, and heat embossing!


These two cards will be featured in two morning Mini Classes (both classes the same, just limited to 10 students each time slot). The times will be 10:30-11:30 and 12-1. These two cards both use Distress Inks in fun ways - and that cute kitty is on an action wobble as well!


GIVEAWAY INFO:
Now the fun part - there are a total of 4 $25 Gift Certificates up for grabs - 2 winners for each day - Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop. Make sure and leave comments by 11:59 PM PST on September 18, 2018 to qualify! Winners will be announced after that on the Pretty Pink Posh Blog!
