Pretty Pink Posh – jkcards

Old Parisian Floral Greetings

Happy mid-week peeps! The weather has been nice here, warm but good convertible weather which still is my favorite way to get around! I did get a different car, still a convertible, and I love it even more! Also high on the agenda, I have been trying organize the Craft Closet and it’s a little overwhelming! It’s so hard to part with anything. LOL! But sometimes you come across something that you completely forgot about and remember how much you loved it. I used just such a find on my card for today!

I started out by using the Spellbinders Diamond Floral Frame Set from Yana. All of the flowers and frame are foiled with Spellbinders Gold Hot Foil using my Crafter’s Companion Foilpress and Gemini Jr onto two shades of green and two shades of purple 110lb Card Stock. I used Neenah Solar White 110lb for the frame. The coordinating dies in the set are used to cut out all of the elements. My greeting is from the Spellbinders Yana’s Sentiments Hot Foil Set. It’s also foiled in gold and I cut out three blanks to add to it to give it some dimension. The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb and to that I added a piece of Purple 110lb Card Stock that I embossed with the Cuttlebug Old Paris Embossing Folder. It’s an oldie but still so cool! Next I added the elements to the card with Bearly Arts Glue and 3D Foam Tape. To finish it off I added some Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins.

I do really still love that Embossing Folder, unfortunately it’s hard to find as it’s from 2015! But you can always do a google search and get it! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card and I thank you for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday!

Fab Friday 102

The weather has definitely taken a chilly turn. I’m not going to lie, I don’t like it! I got up early yesterday morning and managed to have some poached eggs on toast for breakfast before heading out to the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store. Once there I had a nice productive day! I made a few cards and also put together another kit! It’s up on the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store Web Site if you want to take a look. My aunt Shirley and my uncle Steve FaceTimed me from England yesterday, love getting to speak to them! I also chatted with Andrea and we crafted for bit together. After work my favorite little person was at my Parent’s house! I had dinner with Daniel and then we played with his trains and threw a ball around for a bit. It landed in my Brother’s coffee which I thought was hysterical, he did not! After dinner Taylor stopped by my house and we ran to Target. Today I need to work on some more kits and tomorrow I think I will take a trip into Manhattan! 😀

Oh, before I forget I will have a second post today at 11:00AM for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Challenge Blog! Make sure that you come back for that one, it’s a nice sparkly wintry card with a twist!

It’s time once again for a Fab Friday challenge, our last one of the year, and this time we have some timely colors for you…


I got to use a new stamp set that I got in my Pretty Pink Posh order and some dies too! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Chinese Red. I used the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Tabs Dies to cut out three piece of Kraft to look like file folders. Next I stamped some images from the Pretty Pink Posh Winter Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them in with Copics. They are cut out with the Coordinating Dies. I stamped the happy holidays onto the tabs with Memento Tuxedo Black and then adhered the “file folders” to the card with E-Z Runner and Fun Foam. The little critters are adhered with 3D Foam Squares and I added some Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen to the hats and antlers (you can’t really see it in the picture but it looks neat in person!). The bottom panel looked a little naked so I stamped the snowflakes from the set in Hero Arts Unicorn Pigment Ink randomly. To finish the card I had to add some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins! I think that the little critters peeking over to tops of the file folders are so cute and I love the Stitched Tabs Dies! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Color Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and check out what the rest of the team did and enter your creation in the Gallery! Thanks so much for stopping by this morning! Don’t forget to come back at 11:00AM for my second post for today! Until then have a nice Friday! 🙂

SIP Challenge 63 – Wonderful Wings!

Not a bad Monday at all! The weather was nice, hot and super sunny, just how I like it! I got a lot accomplished at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store, more that I thought I would! I ordered some new products, inquired about my Hero Arts order and started working on my cards for Card Class. I also managed to make my card for today, all that was left to do when I got home was to add some Sequins! After dinner I ran a few errands and then sat down at the computer and caught up on some YouTube subscriptions and got the two posts done for today! I’ll continue working on the cards today and see what else I can come up with! Renee has her Home Decor class today, they are replacing the o in home with an apple! So neat! Oh, and my friend Crystal that came by the store on Saturday wrote a great post about her little adventure! You can read it HERE!

Today I’m over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge Blog for this week’s challenge…

SIP Challenge 63

In my Pretty Pink Posh order the other day were some goodies other than those awesome sequins! My card base today is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Gold Mirror Card. I took a piece of Arches 140lb Watercolor Paper and did a wash of some blue and green watercolor paint from my Mijello Mission Gold Palette. After I sped up the drying with my Heat Tool I used the Pretty Pink Posh Mini Storybook 1 Die to cut out my window for my shaker. Some Acetate is adhered to the back and then a little Fun Foam. I added some Pretty Pink Posh Share Handmade Kindness Sequins Mix to the card front and adhered the panel over the top. My butterflies and greeting are from the Pretty Pink Posh Blissful Butterflies Photopolymer Stamp Set and are all heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto more Arches 140lb and colored in with my Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors. I cut them out with the Coordinating Dies and adhered them all to the card with 3D Foam Squares. A few more sequins from the Share Handmade Kindness Mix along with some Gold ones are adhered to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. I love that little butterfly set and dies, the greeting is awesome too! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Go over to the BLOG and see the rest of the Design Team’s cards and enter yours into the gallery! Thank you for coming by and visiting with me today! Have an exceptional Tuesday! 🙂
