Pretty Pink Posh tropical blog hop!

Hi there!


Pretty Pink Posh has a new release out right now and it's all things summery and tropical. Check out the collection HERE. To celebrate, they are putting on a 2-day blog hop - starting this morning - with all kinds of invited guest designers. I'm thrilled to be one of them!

I have a couple of cards to show you, so let's get started!

Pretty Pink Posh tropical blog hop!


For my first card, I used the Beach Scene Die and the Tropical Background Stencil. I started out by ink blending the tropical background pattern onto 2 layers of white cardstock. I kept it light and subtle. I think die-cut the pieces for the beach scene and colored everything using copic markers.

I added a punchy black hello (from the Hello Friend script die) to finish things off.

My next card is for the birds (groan, I'm turning into my dad):

I used the Tropical Toucans stamp set - it's so fun! I love these adorably quirky birds! I used copic markers to color them in and layered them over a stenciled background.

I blended pink inks over the Triangles stencil and then adhered the birdies in place. I framed everything out with a Scallop Frames die.

I hope you like them! Now, onto the fun stuff:

  35. I really like your non-traditional toucans. They are so much fun (and worthy of a terrible dad-pun). I'm also super impressed with your gel pen highlights. Your surfboards look like you put clear embossing on them! Thanks for sharing with us.
