If you’ve been following Pretty Pink Posh for a while, you know that last year we did an epic collaboration blog hop with our friends at Altenew. We had so much fun teaming up with them that we had to do it again, but even BIGGER!
Today I have the amazing Yana Smakula sharing her take on bringing Pretty Pink Posh and Altenew together on one beautiful holiday project. Let’s see what she’s created…
When you mix supplies from two great companies you end up having fantastic results! To create the card I’m sharing here I used several dies sets from Pretty Pink Posh (along with a few sequins) and a stamp set from Altenew.
I started working on this card by stamping the poinsettia, holly leaves and pine from the Poinsettia and Pine set several times onto watercolor paper using waterproof ink in black. I knew I wanted to have a dimensional flower, so I made sure to stamp poinsettia twice to be able to layer it and have actual physical dimension on my project. I used distress inks for some quick coloring, although you can use whatever coloring medium you prefer.
Next I used a few dies from Pretty Pink Posh and created a base panel for my project. I cut several panels out of patterned paper and combined them together by using border dies from the Stitched Borders 2 and Scallop Borders sets. I also heat embossed a beautiful holiday sentiment from the Sketchy Landmarks set onto this patterned paper using gold embossing powder.
To create a placeholder for the Holiday floral arrangement I die cut scallop oval out of gold foil cardstock and patterned paper using Scallop Ovals Dies. My poinsettia was arranged on top and I also stamped several pine needles in black directly onto the patterned paper panel.
To frame everything I die cut the large Scallop Frames out of brown patterned paper and foam mounted it over the background panel to add dimension to this project. Lastly, I foam mounted my panel onto a light gray card base and embellished my card with the Peridot Mist sequins and Clear Droplets.
