I really love how pretty this card turned out. With the lots warm red and pink colours, using a light shade of grey for shadow and for the card base lightens up the entire card and gives a fresh colourful look. The white sentiment die cut now makes pops along with the sparkly clear sequins. The vellum soften the whole card.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Have a lovely weekend!
I ADORE this image both the boy and girl arm in arm with ice cream in their hands. Absolutely adorable! So I stamped the image on a white card panel. Then made a mask of this image by stamping the image on masking paper, cutting out the image. I masked the original image using the mask. Then sponged Abandoned Coral, Mermaid Lagoon, Fossilized Amber and Twisted Citron distress inks around the image. I sprayed some clear shimmer to add texture and shimmer to the background. I then stamped the bricks on either side of the image using an older Penny Black stamp set called Brick Wall. Similarly I stamped the two foliage on either side of the focal masked image in black. The foliage are from an older stamp set called Sprigs.

I love the cuteness of Lawn Fawn stamp sets. And I really adore the cute otter in the Otterly Great Birthday stamp set and dies. This is my card using the adorable otter image from Lawn Fawn!
I black embossed the otter and watercoloured using Zig Clean Brush watercolour pen. Then I die cut the otter using the coordinating die. Then stamped the sentiment on a strip of white cardstock and trimmed the edges.
For the background, I stamped the new Stepping Stone background stamp from You have my Heart collection from Simon Says Stamp in versamark and white heat embossed the image on watercolour paper. Then I coloured the inside of the stones in various shades of blue and aqua using Zig Clean Brush Watercolour pens. The background I shaded in grey. Once dry, I used the largest Stitched rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die set to die cut the watercoloured background. I adhered this panel to Audrey Blue card base using craft foam. Then added a layer of vellum which I die cut using the third largest stitched rectangle die. On top of the vellum panel, I adhered the die cut otter and the sentiment using foam adhesives. To bring the card together, I used Pretty Pink Posh’s Cobalt, Sea Breeze and Sparkly Clear sequins.
If you use instagram add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too!
I adhered the panel on a pink card base to coordinate with the big flowers on the image. For the sentiment I die cut True Love die using gold foiled cardstock and adhered on the card front. Finally embellished with gold 6mm and 4mm sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I have two cards using Pretty Pink Posh dies and sequins and a video to share today. Hope you enjoy my projects.
This is my first card using Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Banner Duo die set and Sweet Pea sequins mix!
My card is inspired by Sweet Pea sequins mix by Lisa Elton! I love the pinks, greens and white sequins in the mix. So pretty! I decided to layer the Stitched Banner dies add a big bold sentiment and embellish with the sequins from Sweet Pea mix.
I die cut four stitched banner from white cardstock and one using gold mirror cardstock. I sponged Spun Sugar, Worn Liptstick and Abandoned Coral distress inks on the four white die cuts. Spattered them with water and set aside to dry. I stamped the sentiment from the new Roses for You stamp set by Simon Says Stamp on the bottom of the white card base. Coloured the sentiment with copic markers. Then stamped the leaves and coloured with copic markers again.
Then I layered and adhered the stitched banners on the top of the card front and embellished with sequins from Sweet Pea sequins mix.
If you like my video please give me a thumbs up! Also subscribe to my channel. I will have more videos coming every week.
Here are the both the cards together.
I love love the chick in the Birdie Notes stamp set. Absolutely adorable. In fact the entire stamp set is very cute. This is a card I made using the stamp set.
Background is pattern paper from an old Pink Paislee paper pad. I think it was last valentine’s release paper pad. I then used Scallop Frame die cut in black to frame the chick and the envelopes. The chick and the envelopes are copic colouored, fuzzy cut and adhered suing foam adhesives. I made a slit on the beak of the chick and slid the smaller envelope inside. The sentiment is simply stamped on a piece of white cardstock, trimmed and adhered. I brushed the envelopes with Wink of Stella clear shimmer pen. Finally embellished with Lemon Drop 6mm and 4 mm sequins.
Here are the list of all the designers participating in the blog hop today!
The kit also comes with the sticker from Polar Pals collection. So I added the snowman sticker over the printed snowman on the pattern paper using foam adhesives. Then embellished with the snowflakes sequins and doodlebug sprinkles enamel dots also from the kit. That’s it! How simple is it to make a card from the kit? This is my first card suing the kit. Will keep sharing more projects during this month.
