Pretty Pink Posh 5th Birthday Party and Release Hop



Good morning! Today I'm helping to finish off the final day of a 3 day blog hop to celebrate the BRAND NEW Pretty Pink Posh January Release! This is an amazing birthday and love themed release - so many fun stamp sets, fabulous new dies, and some more of the popular PPP Jewel Mixes! 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!


Since we are also celebrating Pretty Pink Posh's 5th Birthday, it seemed appropriate to create a fun birthday party card - and why use one cute critter when you can use them all?!?!?!?


I stamped pretty much every single image from the adorable new Cupcake Critters stamp set, and colored them with Copic markers in a nice bright and fun color scheme, then die cut them all out with the coordinating Cupcake Critters Dies.


I added some white gel pen accents to the images, and die cut one of the dies from Stitched Border 1 from white cardstock to create a line to ground all the images on my card, and layered everything up with foam adhesive. I also added a good heavy sprinkling of the beautiful new Valentine Jewels Mix to add sparkle to my card.


The background was one of several distress oxide blended backgrounds I created while visiting my good friend Crystal Thompson Designs in Wyoming over New Years testing out her Blendabilities blending brushes. I used a color combo of Scattered Straw, Rusty Hinge, and Festive Berries on this background. I also splattered the background with some gold using a Starry Colors Palette - this photo shows the sparkle from the gold and jewels best:


I have also have this other card that I shared a few days ago with the new release - click HERE or on the picture for more details if you want to see more!

  43. Your blended background is gorgeous and the gold splatters and jewels are the perfect finish for it! The Cupcake Critters are so adorable (my fav is the little bunny with the apple on his head and his paws smack dab in the middle of the frosting lol). Your card is so fun and festive, I love it! Thanks for sharing it and your previous Crocus Flower card and for the inspiration with both sets.
    Happy 5th Pretty Pink Posh #CELEBRATE :)
