Pretty Pink Posh September 2021 Release Blog Hop

Pretty Pink Posh September 2021 Release Blog Hop

Day 1

Hey Friends!  Welcome back to my blog!  I'm so excited you're here to join me for day 1 of the Pretty Pink Posh September release.  You should have joined me from super talented Leica!  I hope you enjoy all the card inspiration on the hop and be sure to check out the giveaway - more details at the end of this post!


My card for the hop features the Falling Leaves Background Stencil with sentiments taken from the Falling Leaves stamp set.

Taking my stencil I chose a leaf and used post-it tape to mask off any surrounding leaves.  My card panel was a piece of smooth white heavyweight cardstock and I laid my chosen leaf opening on the card.  I rotated the stencil as I applied ink through the openings, moving from top to bottom  I always like to start with the biggest image and fill in gaps with smaller images.

My chosen Distress Inks for this card were Aged Mahogany, Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint and Carved Pumpkin. When applying the ink through the stencil I focused the concentration of colour at the base of the leaf, getting lighter towards the top.  I love the dimension and interest this gives the leaves. 

To break up the white in the background I added some ink splatters in Vintage Photo & Aged Mahogany Distress Ink along with with some Gold Paint which gives a hint of shimmer.  Once the panel was dry I trimmed it down to 5"x 3.75" and secured it to a Chestnut coloured A2 sized cardbase.

For the sentiment I gold heat embossed the word 'Thankful' on to white cardstock and cut it out with the co-ordinating die.  To give the sentiment dimension I cut the word 'Thankful' two more times and adhered all the layers together with liquid adhesive.  I white heat embossed the 'Happy Thanksgiving' on to the same Chestnut cardstock and trimmed in to a thin strip.   A couple of thin strips of foam tape were used to adhere the sentiment to the card.

As a final embellishment and to add a touch more sparkle I added a few jewels in Espresso

I hope you enjoyed this card and it gives you all the Autumn feels.  Next on the hop is the amazing Channin Pelletier.
