Hello there,

Pretty Pink Posh has released a super cute and cheery new collection on June 7th, and I'm thrilled to be part of a blog hop that celebrates it! This release is so perfect for the summer season, to make colorful and bright cards. So refreshing!

Three (3) $30 gift certificates are up for grabs (one winner each day) Winner will be picked randomly along the blog hop.
Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PST on 6/14/2023. Winner will be announced on the Pretty Pink Posh blog.

I will share several projects throughout the next weeks, and I'm starting today with a set of four citrus thank you cards featuring some of the brand new products:

Each card was made using the same process: a stenciled background + colorful images + a big sentiment. So I started off by stamping the images from the Citrus stamp set several times to get enough for my four cards. I cut them using the coordinating dies, and colored everything using my Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers and Graph'it brush markers.

And to make my cards even more cute, I stamped and colored four kitties from Cuddly Cats.

Next I cut four 4,25 x 4 inches Strathmore bristol smooth panels, and created backgrounds that coordinate with my images using the Layered Citrus stencils and distress oxide inks.

To match the oranges, I used dried marigold + spiced marmalade oxide inks. To match the limes, I used shabby shutters + mowed lawn oxide inks. To match the lemons, I used squeezed lemonade + mustard seed. And to match the grapefruits, I used ripe persimmon + fossilized amber oxide inks.

Next I cut four 4 x 3-6/8 inches vellum panels. At the very top of each panel I stamped "Thank you" from Fresh Berries, and at the very bottom "Wish I could give you a squeeze" from Citrus. I used black Stazon ink to stamp those greetings because this ink dries quickly and it doesn't smear.

To complete my "Thank you" greetings, I used the Friend Script die. I cut the word "Friend" four times out of white cardstock, and cut the outline pieces out of colored cardstock to match the images. I stuck each white "Friend" on an outline piece, and then attached each element on the vellum panels using 1mm foam squares. And next I attached my images using 1mm foam squares.

To attach the vellum panels on the stenciled panels and make the glue invisible, I added liquid glue at the back of the vellum panels, but just behind the images and greetings. And then I stuck each panel on 4,5 x 4,25 inches matching card bases. And as always I finished my cards by adding highlights and details on the images using a white gel pen.

I hope you like this lovely Citrus set of cards. I will be back very soon with more cards featuring products from the Pretty Pink Posh June release. See you next time!
