Pretty Pink Posh October Blog Hop - Day 2



Hello Craft Friends and thank you for joining me today on this Pretty Pink Posh blog hop!

Be sure to leave comments along the way for your chance to win one of the 4 $25 shop gift certificates that are up for grabs!



My card today features the new Holiday Signs Stamp set and coordinating dies. I also used last years Penguin Pals stamp set. Don't they just look so cute together? I copic colored the images using some bright fun colors I thought set off against the background.

Copics Used: B06, B02, B00; YR00, YR02; BV04, BV01, BV000; RV10 R81, RV000; N2, Colorless Blender.



The background features the new Snowflake Stencil. For this I first blended the background using my blender brushes. The background is Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon & Broken China. Once the background was blended I placed my stencil over and blended on more Broken China. This is what gives the appearance of a fade since at the bottom the color is the same.



For a finishing touch I added the Winter Sparkle Sequin mix. I thought it went well with the colors and the theme.

Thank you hopping with us!

  15. I was scrolling down through your blog and suddenly I was hearing "Let It Snow" in my head. I wondered what caused the song to come to mind. I went back and re-read the message on the sign the penguin was holding, and found the answer. LOL :D Great card!! I love the simplicity of the cute little characters with a fun greeting.
