Pretty Pink Posh Birthday Instagram Hop

mercredi 14 février 2024

Hi there,

Join Pretty Pink Posh as they celebrate turning 10 with a big Birthday Release packed full of birthday products. Please check my post on Instagram and hop along to get inspired for your birthday projects year round!

There is also a free gift offer for qualifying purchases, so please check the graphic below for more details. And I've made a card featuring this lovely Potted Daffodils free gift so feel welcome to check it right here for some inspiration.


On today's card, the main product is the brand new Birthday Train, which is a super cool addition to the already existing Valentine Train, and if you haven't seen the card I made with that cute love train, you can check it right here.

On my Valentine Train card, I had added a cute kitty from Cuddly Cats, well this time I went for a tropical/savanna theme by adding a sweet lion from Jungle Friends. As very often I started off by stamping all my images on 80lb Neenah solar white cardstock using an alcohol marker friendly black ink, I cut them all using the matching dies, and colored everything using my alcohol markers.

So, along with the images from Birthday Train, here are the other stamps I picked:  Jungle Friends for the lion, vine, leaves and flowers  Valentine Train for the heart wagon.

Once all the images were colored, I moved on to the background, and started off by cutting a Slimline Peekaboo Windows panel out of Strathmore bristol smooth cardstock. I colored my panel using, from the bottom to the top, squeezed lemonade, dried marigold and kitsch flamingo oxide inks. And next I added more interest using one of the the Layered Leaves & Flowers stencils along with, from the bottom to the top, mustard seed, spiced marmalade and picked raspberry oxide inks.

I also added texture: I mixed some copic opaque white ink with water and used a small brush to make splatters all over the panel, and did the same with black soot oxide ink for more contrast.

Once my panel was totally dry, I attached the images using 1mm and 2mm foam squares, and liquid glue. And then I created my sentiment using stamps from Birthday Train. I white heat embossed "Hooray" on pink cardstock and cut it using the matching die. And I gold heat embossed "It's your day" on white cardstock, trimmed it into a slim banner using a Sentiment Strips die, and then attached both pieces on my panel using foam squares again. And as always I finished my card by adding highlights and details to the images using a white gel pen.
