Pretty Pink Posh March Release

Hello everyone! Today PPP will have a March Release Blog Hop together with fabulous and talented ladies out there. Get ready to have tons of fun with us! Don't forget to leave comments on every stop, there are 4 $25 gift certificates up for grabs (two winners each day). Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop. Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PST on 3/12/2018. Winners will be announced on the PPP blog.
YAY! Let's get started..


Here's my card for the blog hop. I use some of watercolor technique for this one. The smushy background is made with Distress Inks in Peacock Feather, Twisted Citron, Evergreen Bough adn Seedless Preserves on 4.25" x 5.5" watercolor paper. I layered it couple of times until I get what I want and satisfied with the result. After that, I use the brand new Stacked Edges 2 Dies several times on a repeat to get the pattern and faux stitches detail.


The Cherry Blossoms stamp set is super gorgeous! It's just that easy to make something beautiful with this set, one of the must have. I paired it with  Hummingbird Thanks stamp. I got help from Google to find out the real hummingbirds' colors as the references. Loose watercolor technique is perfect for them, don't you think so? After I finished with the stamping and coloring, I die cut all of the images with the coordinating dies. And here goes the most fun part, arrange them all together on my card base. Some of the are adhered with glue while others with foam tapes to create dimensions.
Last but not least, I stamped the thanks sentiment from the same set to finish my card. Here's a closer look of my card... :)

  57. I have the Hummingbirds! I won them in the last contest and I used them on a sympathy card for my mom's boss who lost his mom at 89. I love how it looked when it was sucking the nectar out of the flower. I like the Cherry Blossom stamps for the Hummingbirds. Your card is so colorful and I love how you colored the Hummingbirds. That's kind of how I colored mine. Thank you for showing us what you did and for giving us the chance to win something.

  58. Oh, those hummingbirds are the perfect pairing with the cherry blossoms. Also, I love how you did the background. I would have been worried that it would be too busy for the flowers and hummingbirds, but I love how it turned out. Note to self: be bold and color smoosh! Thanks so much for sharing with us!
