Stepping Up Layering Stencils | Pretty Pink Posh Christmas/Winter Release & Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends.

I’m so excited to be joining Pretty Pink Posh to celebrate their holiday release. This release is all about Christmas and the winter season.  To celebrate their release, Pretty Pink Posh is having a blog hop where you have a chance to win one of three $30 gift certificates to the Pretty Pink Posh shop.

Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop - October 2022 - Christmas and Winter Release

Be sure to read all the way to the end of this post to find out more about the blog hop, see some of the cards I made with this release, and find links to all of the supplies I used to make my cards.

If you would like to see the entire release, you can watch my video below or on YouTube.

For the blog hop, I’m sharing four cards that I made with some of the new products from Pretty Pink Posh’s new release. For my cards, I use some stepped-up stenciling techniques to add glitter and shine to my stenciled cards.

Card 1

For my first card, I used the Layered Coffee Cups stencil. For Layer A, I used Scrapbook.com Pine ink. For Layer B, I added Ground Espresso Distress Oxide ink to everything except for the coffee cup sleeve.  I added Versamark ink for the coffee cup sleeve and then I sprinkle red embossing powder over the sleeves of the coffee cups and heat set them.

For Layer C, I inked the coffee steam with Scrapbook.com Fog ink. Next, I added Versarmark ink to the hearts and bottom of the coffee mugs. I use red embossing powder to cover these areas and then heat set them. Next, I reapplied stencil Layer C, adding Versamark ink to the stars. I used Brutus Monroe Gilded embossing powder and heat set it. I just love the look of the embossing powder on the stenciled background. It adds such a pretty shine to the stenciled background.

Pretty Pink Posh - Layered Coffee Cups Stencil Card - Coffee handmade card - taking your stencils to the next level adding glitter and shine

I used a rectangle die to cut the coffee cup background and added it to a piece of white cardstock.

Using the snowflake die from the Mitten Shaker die set, I die cut 10 white snowflakes and glued them around the outside edge of a piece of red cardstock. I added the coffee cup layer to the top of the red snowflake paper.

I stamped a sentiment from the Holiday Sentiments stamp set and cut it out with a banner die from the Holiday Envelopes die set. I layered the white banner onto a red banner and offset it.

I added some Ruby Red Pearls to my card. My finished card is an A2 size card which measures 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.

Pretty Pink Posh - Layered Winter Foliage Stencil Card - taking your stencils to the next level adding glitter and shine

After I inked all layers of the stencil, I added each stencil layer back on top of my cardstock and added Brutus Monroe Alabaster Glitter Glaze to each stencil layer. After applying the glitter glaze to each layer, I set it aside to fully dry before reapplying the glitter glaze to the next stencil layer. The glitter glaze adds so much sparkle to the stenciled background. It even resembles snow sitting on top of the leaves and pinecones.

I used a rectangle die to cut the stenciled background and added it to a piece of red cardstock. I stamped the Pine Wreath Stamp in Scrapbook.com Pine ink onto green cardstock and die cut it with the coordinating dies. I brushed some Brutus Monroe Alabaster Glitter Glaze all over the wreath. I added the Pine Wreath Stamp Set to the top of the card along with some acorns and a bow. I added the word Joy to the wreath. I used the Scrapbook.com Pops of Color in Rudolph Red to add berries to the wreath.

Thank You Autumn Scene Card | Pretty Pink Posh

Hello crafty friends.

I love to make scene cards and today I’m sharing a thank you autumn scene card using several new products from the Pretty Pink Posh September release which is all about autumn. To celebrate the new autumn release, Pretty Pink Posh is having an Instagram hop where you have a chance to win a $30 gift certificate to the Pretty Pink Posh shop. More information about the Instagram hop is at the end of this blog post.

Pretty Pink Posh Autumn Card - thank you card - happy mail card - autumn scene card - fall envelopes - fall borders

When I first saw the Mouse Friends stamp set, I thought the mice would be so cute holding the big envelope from the Fall Envelopes stamp set. I love how the autumn leaves look like they are flying out of the envelope. Of course, an autumn card wouldn’t be complete without pumpkins so I used the pumpkin border from the Fall Borders stamp set and colored the pumpkins in various autumn colors.

If you would like to see how I made my card, be sure to check out my video below or on YouTube.

For this card, I started by coloring my images using Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens. The colors I used are listed below. Next, I cut a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and used Distress Oxide inks to ink blend the background. I used Shabby Shutters ink on the lower inch of the cardstock. I used Tumbled Glass ink on the top.  Next, I assembled the stamped images onto my card panel. Finally, I added the card panel to an A2 size card base.

Halloween Stenciled Cards | Pretty Pink Posh

Hello crafty friends.

Halloween cards are so much fun to make. I made two more cards using the Pretty Pink Posh Halloween release. For both of my cards, I’m using some of Pretty Pink Posh’s brand new Halloween layered stencils. I love using stencils because they make it so easy to add a fun background to a card by just adding some ink.

For my first card, I created a cute Halloween scene using the Layered Ghosts Stencil.

Pretty Pink Posh - Halloween Card - Layered Ghosts Stencil, Halloween Critters, Distress Oxide Background

For my second card, I used the Layered Pumpkins stencil.

Pretty Pink Posh Layered Pumpkins Stencil, Halloween Critters

If you would like to see how I made my cards, you can watch my video here.

Halloween Card - Pretty Pink Posh Layered Ghosts Stencil, Halloween Critters

For my first card, I started by coloring the mummy bear image from the Halloween Critters stamp set.  I colored it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens. The colors I used are as follows:

–Bandages – Gray, Light Gray, Blender
–Body – Brown, Blender
–Nose – Black
–Inside Ear – Beige
–Pumpkin – Orange, Bright Yellow

I also colored some of the images from the Halloween Envelopes stamp set, specifically, the candy and a spider. The colors I used are as follows:

–Jelly Bean – Carmine Red, Blender
–Candy Corn – Bright Yellow, Orange, Light Gray
–Candy – Violet
–Spider – Black, Blender 

For my background, I cut a piece of cardstock to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. I added Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink to the bottom inch of the cardstock which will represent the grass for my Halloween scene. Next, I added Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink all over the remaining background. Finally, I added Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink around the edges.

After I inked the entire background, I was ready to do some stenciling. The stencil I used is the Layered Ghosts Stencil. I placed Stencil A over the background. This stencil is the one with the shape of the ghosts. I wanted a very subtle ghost background so I added a white pigment ink to the ghosts. Next, I placed Stencil B on the background. This stencil contains ghost faces and I added them with a black ink. Finally, I added Stencil C which contains the stars. I used Picket Fence Studios Paper Glaze in Daffodil Yellow along with a palette knife to add the glaze. The glaze not only made the stars bright yellow, but it also added some dimension to my background which I love!

After my background dried,  I stamped the fence from the Halloween Borders stamp set onto the green grassy portion of the card layer using a black ink. I added my critter from the Halloween Critters stamp set, some candy from the Halloween Envelopes stamp set, and the word “boo” from the Boo Script die set.

Finally, I added this layer to a piece of a black cardstock that I cut to 4 ¼ x 5 1/2” and then added it to an A2 card base which is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.

Pretty. Pink Posh. Halloween Card - Layered Pumpkins - Halloween Critters

For my second card, I used the Pretty Pink Posh Layered Pumpkins Stencil and inked it up with Dried Marigold, Carved Pumpkin, Mowed Lawn, Antique Linen, and Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide inks onto Bristol Smooth cardstock. I added the panel to piece of gray cardstock cut to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.

I colored the cute Halloween cat from the Pretty Pink Posh Halloween Critters stamp set. I colored it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens in the following colors:

–Cat – Beige, Brown, Blender
–Pumpkin – Orange, Blender, Bright Yellow, Mustard
–Cape, Mask – Gray, Light Gray

I used the Pretty Pink Posh Easter Circle dies to cut the green die cut behind the cat and used the Pretty Pink Posh Strip die set to cut the gray stitched strips.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a spooky day!

Halloween Shaker Cards | Pretty Pink Posh

Hello crafty friends.

Shaker cards are some of my favorite cards to make, and I’m so excited to share some Halloween shaker cards that I made using some new products from Pretty Pink Posh!

Halloween Shaker Cards - Pretty Pink Posh - Spider Web Shaker Card - Cauldron Shaker Card

Pretty Pink Posh released some amazing Halloween stamps, dies, and stencils. Be sure to check out the entire release in my video below.

My cards are part of a Pretty Pink Posh Instagram Hop where you have a chance to win a $30 gift certificate to their shop. For more information, check out my Instagram post on my Instagram page at https://www.instagram.com/lisamearsdesigns/.

If you would like to see how I made my cards, then watch my video here.

My first card features the Spider Web Die Set, Ghosts Friends Stamp Set, and Boo Script Die Set.

Halloween Card - Pretty Pink Posh - Spider Web Shaker Card

For the card background, I cut a piece of white cardstock to 4″ x 5 1/4″. I inked the cardstock with Distress Oxide inks. I used Twisted Citron in the center, followed by Mowed Lawn, and then Rustic Wilderness along the outside edges.  Next, I mixed some black acrylic paint with water to thin it out and then flicked some of the paint onto the background. I set this aside to dry.

Next, I stamped the ghosts from the Ghost Friends stamp set onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock and colored the ghosts with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens. The colors I used are as follows:

Ghosts – Light Gray/Blender (body), Sugar Almond Pink (cheeks)

Hat – Deep Violet, Violet, English Lavender

Hat Stripe – Orange, Blender

Pumpkin – Orange, Blender

Broom – Beige, Gray, Blender

Lollypop – Sugar Almond Pink, Peach Pink

Bow – Violet, English Lavender

Bow – Peach Pink, Blender

I die cut the Spider Web die set with double-sided adhesive foam. I placed the spider web foam piece in the center of the card layer making sure to add two ghosts slightly behind the spider web foam piece before fully adhering it to the card.

I also die cut the spider web with black cardstock and glued it to a piece of acetate. I cut the acetate along the outside edges of the black spider web until all of the excess acetate was removed from the spider web. I set this piece aside and then filled the spider web foam piece with the Spooky Night Clay Confetti and the Monster Mash Clay Confetti. Once the spider web was filled with confetti, I glued the black spider web acetate piece to the top of the spider web foam piece to enclose all of the shaker pieces. Be sure to watch my video to see this process in action.

I added die cut the spider from the die that comes with the spider web die and colored it with Violet and English Lavender Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens. I added the spider to the center of the web.

I added the sentiment “boo” from the Boo Script die set and then added this card layer to a piece of black cardstock that measures 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. I added the final layer to an A2 size card base.

Halloween Card - Spider Web Shaker Card - Ghost Friends Stamp Set - Pretty Pink Posh

My next card features the Cauldron Shaker Die Set, Layered Candy Corn Stencil, and the Scalloped Circle Die Set.

Halloween Card - Cauldron Shaker Card - Pretty Pink Posh

I started by creating the candy corn background for my card. I cut a piece of white cardstock to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ and used the Layered Candy Corn Stencil with the following inks: Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink, Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide ink, and Scrapbook.com Fog ink.

Next, I cut a Scallop Circle die from orange and white cardstock. I used the orange scallop frame and the white inside piece for the circle on my card.

I used the Cauldron Shaker die and made a shaker for the centerpiece of my card. Be sure to watch my video to see how I made the cauldron shaker!

I added the Halloween Party Clay Confetti to the inside of the cauldron. The confetti pieces are so much fun with pieces that look like real candy! My favorites are the ones that look like real candy corn! I glued some of the confetti pieces above the cauldron so it would look like the pieces are boiling out of it. 

I used a sentiment from the Halloween Envelopes stamp set and die cut it with the banner die from the coordinating die set. I tied twine around the lower portion of the card layer and then added it to an A2 size orange card base.

Next, I added Spun Sugar, Shaded Lilac, and Tumbled Glass for the sky.

I splattered on Walnut Stain Distress Ink to the sand. Finally, I added dots with a white gel pen to the tops of the waves to replicate sea foam.

Mini Slimline Snowflake Stenciled Cards

Hello Crafty Friends.

Today, I’m sharing some quick and easy winter cards using the Mini Slimline Snowflake Window stencil from Simon Says Stamp. This stencil is part of Simon Says Stamp’s And Back Again release. I used the stencil along with some distress oxide inks to create beautiful backgrounds for my mini slimline cards.

Watch a step-by-step tutorial here.

For my first card, I used Carved Pumpkin and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink. I added a snowman stamp from Sunny Studio Feeling Frosty stamp set along with some silver gems to the center of each snowflake.

For my second card, I used Blueprint Sketch, Wilted Violet, and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks. I added some white paint splatters to the card front. Next, I added a stamp set from Simon Says Stamp’s Hibiscus Blooms stamp set and added some silver gems to the center of the snowflakes.
