Pretty Pink Posh 5th Birthday Blog Hop

Cathy ZielskeCards116 Comments

Hey friends! Today I’m excited to be sharing my first card project of 2019 on behalf of Pretty Pink Posh and their 5th birthday celebration!

There are some darling new releases out and I have two card projects to share, and one video tutorial covering this card project:

You can’t go wrong with a simple monochromatic scheme, and a little bit of emboss resist! I adore this little set and created my own patterned panel with a little math and my MISTI tool. Check out my video here:

For my second card project, I used the brand new Cupcake Critters stamps and dies to create a simple birthday care featuring a bit of Copic coloring.

I still keep my coloring really simple but I really love the simple blended bit of Spun Sugar behind my bear’s head. So sweet and simple.

    I am so excited to see someone say “I used a little math!” I love the cards and as a math teacher I’m always super happy when someone admits they use math somehow in real life. As an aside, your coloring gives me hope that mine can improve, too:)

    Hi Cathy. Gorgeous card – love the little heart stamp set with the co-ordinating dies. I also really love how you present your tutorials and all the little tips you give along the way – they are always so helpful. Love (yep, lots of love happening here) Pretty Pink Posh products, particularly the stamps, as they always give a beautifully crisp impression – I have some other stamp sets and really love them. This release is so sweet – need to have it! Thanks for sharing.

    Cathy,
    I love both cards. The little critter is so cute. But, I have to say, the heart card is just so very elegant. I need that set. It is just beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

    I totally love both your cards… the first Be Mine card is such a unique way to use the Heart stamp and die. Bravo!

    You are my CAS guru! I love seeing how you made that background in the first one, because I usually get lost in the small details, so it was really nice to see what you did to give it interest without it turning into too much. And those cupcake critters are just so cute. Thanks for sharing with us!
