Altenew AND Pretty Pink Posh Collaboration blog hop!!

Hello and welcome to the Altenew and Pretty Pink Posh collaboration blog hop! I am so excited and honored to be part of this hop as I really love products from both of these companies so much. Thank you May for inviting me over...it is an honor and was fun to create. Now you must have come from Liz Sarkisyan awesome blog


For today's hop we were to create winter themed cards. I have this cute small and cozy winter village scene stamp from Altenew called "Winter Cottage" and it was fun using it in 2 ways.

For my first card, I sponged the cardbase from top using 3 colors of distress inks and flicked some gold ink to it. I then cut a panel using this pretty Scallop border die by Pretty Pink Posh. I then embossed the image using gold embossing powder and applied some chalk pastels to add color. I stamped this beautiful sentiment using Navy ink and love how the card turned out. To finish, I adhered some pretty sequins by PPP. 



For my 2nd. card I simply stamped the image using Smokey Grey ink. Added a touch of  watercolor. I adhered this panel to the cardbase. I then cut a piece of linen cardstock using the scallop border die and framed the image using 3D foam. Those clear sequins add perfect touch to the card and I love them the best. They are my favorite as they come in a variety of sizes.
