As you probably heard by now, Pretty Pink Posh teamed up with Simon Says Stamp for their STAMPtember event. We designed an exclusive stamp set called Darling Friends, which also happens to be the very first set I’ve ever designed. The whole process was so fun and it was even more rewarding when I began seeing what YOU, my amazing readers, customers and friends, created with the set.
Below are three of the latest ones I spotted…
To begin, I stamped the large and medium trees using a Versamark ink from the Darling Friends stamp set on a white cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder and then distressed it with Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers, Mowed Lawn, and Squeezed Lemonade. Then I smooshed the ink pad on an acrylic block, added water, and splatter it on the cardstock. Once it dries I die-cut the edge using the Wplus9 Gift Card Layers die (large frame).
Next, I stamped the air balloon and the dog image on a watercolored paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink, watercolored the images using the Zig Clear Color Real Brush, then I die-cut the images. I also added some white dots using the Sakura White Gelly Roll pen on the hot air balloon for a finishing touch. For the sentiment I stamped “you’re the best” from the Darling Friends stamp set on a black cardstock using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.
Here’s the closed up look of the trees with distressed inks and ink splatters.
Okay, now onto the winner of the $25 Pretty Pink Posh gift certificate and the Darling Friends stamp set from THIS post. A giant thank you to everyone who left comments- it was fun to read them and see all the well wishes to Joni!
In closing, I wanted to let you all know that all orders placed today- September 26th will begin shipping on September 28th. I’ve been working tirelessly the last few months and really need a few consecutive days off to rest up and spend time with family. Then I’ll be back at it for the brand new release on October 1st! Mark your calendars: it’s a GOOD release!
