Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop-May Release

Hello friends!
I am absolutely delighted and honored to be part of the Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop today. 
If you come from Eloise Blue's blog, you are in the right place. If not, come on and join the fun hop!
s

Pretty Pink Posh is well-known for their wide selections of sequins, cute stamps and fabulous dies! 
Let's get to the cards, shall we?

The first card is all about fun and whimsy...yay, happy day


Build A Bloom stamp set (comes with coordinating dies ) is cute and easy to use. For the leaves and branches, I purposely did not line up the layering. I love the look of overlapped images.

Yay, happy day-001

Noticed the curvy border dies? I am using one of the Scallop Borders 2 Dies. 
I inked up part of the border die with Distress Oxide. The contrast of white stitched lines and inked borders is lovely, isn't it?

My next card is created with the cute images from  Scallop Hexagon Dies
and Bee Friends.

Aren't they darling? The matching dies from Scallop Hexagon Dies and Bee Friends
make it an easy task to put all these images together.

thinking of you #2

After I took the photos, I realized that my bees do not have the black stripes like most bees....
But I like it the way it is as it keeps the design light and simple.

thinking of you #1
Of course, I used all the sequins from Pretty Pink Posh: Champagne sequins and Mini Sparkling Clear Flower Sequins ( my favorite!!). 

You can find all the supplies over Pretty Pink Posh

I like how you offset the layering with the Buil A Bloom set. Nice touch. The Bee card is adorable.

Joy Meadows said...

Love the offsetting of the stamps on the first card, Virginia. And, the second card is so cute, too.

Tracy Chambers said...

I love how your focal point in the first card "drops in" from the top. I will have to try this out, I find I'm stuck with building from the bottom us.
I love the bee card too.
Take care
Tracy

Your cards are absolutely gorgeous. I love the colour layering you did with the Build a Bloom set in your first card, love how the flowers flow down and the cute little flower sequins are a really nice touch. The Bee Friends card is so cheerful. Love the colours you used to frame your sentiment and the addition of the die cut florals are such a nice touch. Once again I love how you added the different sequins to your card, a very nice addition. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration!
