PRETTY PINK POSH + WINNIE & WALTER INSPIRATION BLOG HOP

Welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh + winnie & walter inspiration blog hop! winnie & walter has partnered with sweet Paulina from Pretty Pink Posh to inspire you with this great blog hop today. And both amazing companies have prize packs for you!! I made two cards for this occasion, keeping it very clean & simple:


On the first card, I used the zig-zag die from the Stitched Borders I Dies to "break" my card stock panel into two. Then I stamped a border of fun pumpkin faces from the winnie & walter Moonlight set underneath it and the sentiment above. To make the sentiment black and orange, I masked my stamp with tape before inking it up, inked it black first, removed the tape, stamped and repeated this procedure with the remaining stamp part and the orange ink. To finish the card off, I adhered 6mm Marigold sequins. Here comes another frightful, but hopefully delightful card:


On this card, I trimmed a panel of white card stock and matted it with black card stock. Then I die-cut a circle from the panel to create a window. I stamped the eek and the spider and adhered the panel to the card with foam tape. Then I stamped the spiderweb and drew a thread with a black marker. Finally I adhered 6mm Marigold sequins and 4mm Sparkling Clear sequins.
I hope you like my clean Halloween cards! Now it's time to be inspired by the other designers! Here comes the full blog hop list:

A Halloween Card

Today I have a Halloween card to share. I made it for the current Lawnscaping Challenge Halloween or Color Combo:


Here it is:


I started with a panel of watercolor paper, and inked it with Dusty Concord Distress Ink and an ink blending tool, applying the ink heavier onto the bottom part and softer on the top part to create a gradient background. Then I used the cole's ABCs dies to die-cut letters from black card stock and adhered them to the panel. Now I stamped the bats and the spider with her net and colored them with Copics. The panel was adhered to a card base that I inked up with orange Distress Ink. Finally I added some black sequins. I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!

A Cute She-Dog

Hi everybody! A few days ago, I was playing with my Simon Says Stamp goodies and thought that the dog from the YOU ARE PAWESOME set would make a cute she-dog. So I dressed her up a bit and created this card:


The background of my card was created with the Simon Says Stamp exclusive stencil EXTRA LARGE DOTS, an ink blending tool and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. I gently applied ink in circular motions, trying to achieve a gradient look. Then I stamped the sentiment to the bottom of my card. The dog is stamped onto cardstock and colored with Copic markers, then I cut her out and adhered her with foam tape (I recommend buying the set with the matching dies, it would have made this a lot of easier!). To dress her up, I gave her a bow that I die-cut from cardstock using the little bow from this set. The card was finished off with some clear little sequins. I hope you like it!

Thanks for visiting!
