Ink Blended Swan Card - Pretty Pink Posh Birthday Blog Hop

Good morning! So excited this morning to be hopping for Day 2 of the blog hop to celebrate the Pretty Pink Posh's 6th Birthday, AND the AMAZING NEW Birthday Release from Pretty Pink Posh - so many wonderful love and birthday theme stamps, dies, and stencils!!! Keep reading for more info, details on my card I'm sharing today, AND of course, some giveaway info at the bottom as well!


Today I'm sharing this little fun size note card with no coloring needed - and I also filmed a video for it! You can watch it here below, OR on my YouTube channel HERE!


Here is the video sharing how I created this card:


This card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 - so the front white panel is 4 x 4. I started off by using the adorable new Love Background Stencil and a combination of Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick distress oxide inks to create the background.


I heat embossed the swans from Pond Friends in clear embossing ink, blended Pumice Stone and Hickory Smoke ink over them, then die cut with the Coordinating Dies. The wreath is from the new Large Floral Heart stamp set, heat embossed in white, then with Mowed Lawn distress ink blended over the top before cutting out with the Coordinating Dies.


Heat embossed the sentiment on a strip of black cardstock, then layered everything on the card, using foam adhesive for dimension.


Finished off with a few sparkly Buttercream jewels sprinkled around, because who can resist a bit of bling?!?!?
