Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop



Hello Crafters! 

It's the Pretty Pink Posh August Release hop! 
Can you even stand the cuteness?! 
If you've been following from the beginning you should have arrived from the fabulously talented Nicole Spohr Magourik. If you're just stopping by today's leg of the hop started with the amazing Yana Smakula

Let's cover some business shall we? 
Most important business, Prizes. 
Pretty Pink Posh is generously giving away four $25 gift certificates the the shop. 
Bam! What?! 
Winners will be picked from commentors along the hop so make sure you leave some love. 
Comments must be left by 11:59pm PDT August 17th. 

Card time! 


You know I can't resist a butterfly right? Especially not wjen they are so dang adorable. I did a one layer panel with copic coloring that's it. These stamps stand on their own. 

If you're interested you can watch the entire card from start to finish in the video below.
If you'd like to carry on with the hop and come back that's cool too. It'll be here ;) 



I love adding those little details. It just feels like mine afterward. 


It's a lot easier to see that white gel pen up close and personal. It really makes a huge difference in readability. 

For my next card I kept it super simple 


I used a bit of distress ink in the background before stamping and masking a mini scene. I adore this camping set on it's own but I really love how it mixes and matches withe the other sets Pretty Pink Posh already has out. Who doesn't want to use what they have right? 


There's no video for this one but no worries. I have grand ideas for future scene cards with this bad boy. You just wait. 

You next stop on the hop is one of my personal favorites, Julia Altermann. Prepare to smack your jaw on the floor. She's that awesome. 

Here's today's entire hop in case you miss someone along the way.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
