Pretty Pink Posh

Hi friends! I was on the Pretty Pink Posh blog a few weeks ago sharing a post using their new stencils, but I also wanted to share it here on my own blog.  The stencils for this release center around Easter and spring. There are four different stencils that were released, which include layered eggs, layered butterflies. happy days and a floral background. 

My first card uses the Layered Butterfly stencil. I started my card by ink blending Distress Oxide ink in Spun Sugar onto my card panel to give it a soft pink look. I then used the first butterfly layer and Distress Oxide ink Worn Lipstick to create my butterflies. For the second layer, (butterfly detail) I used Carved Pumpkin ink. For the third and final layer, I added Glitz Glitter Gel in Gold for the butterflies bodies. To finish my panel I added a few splatters with gold paint for a little added detail.

Once my panel was dry, I used the new Butterfly Shaker die to create my shaker window. I added acetate behind the window and inlaid a butterfly in the opening that had been die cut with gold glittered paper. I filled my shaker with the new Creamsicle Pearls and closed up the opening with foam adhesive.

Lastly, I used the Simple Sentiments set to stamp my sentiment. 

My next card uses the new Layered Eggs stencil. I just had to create the eggs in a rainbow of colors! There are two stencils included in this set and they are so easy to use and line up. I did some simple masking and used tone on tone dye ink. On my final layer I did add a layer of Ranger Texture Paste in Transparent Gloss to give the eggs some extra shine and texture.

To finish my card I used the Hoppy Easter Script die. I die cut the sentiment three times with white cardstock and once with a light pink glittered cardstock I had in my stash.  I then stacked the dies for some added dimension before attaching them to my card panel. 

Thanks for joining me today. I hope I inspired you to give these new stencils a try... I know you won't be disappointed. They are so fun and easy to use!

Enjoy your day,
