I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Just Saying Hello

Happy Monday peeps,

I recently received my order of some of newly released products from Pretty Pink Posh. I love the stencils and the stamp sets! And the dies. Can't forget the dies! For my first card using some of the new goodies, I used Claire's sketch for this week's Paper Players Challenge.

The card base is Gina K Lucky Clover card stock. I used one of the stencils and a blending brush with Lucky Clover ink to ad the Jungle leaves and flowers. The second panel is also made using new stencils from PPP, Gina K inks and blending brushes. The flowers and berries are heat embossed with clear EP. The new stitched leaf border die is cut from the same Lucky Clover paper and sponged with Fresh Asparagus ink and glued with liquid glue. The monkeys are stamped with Memento tuxedo black ink and colored with Copics, cut out with the set dies, and arranged on panels cut using Hero Arts nesting dies. The greeting is embossed with white EP on SU Poppy Parade paper. Finally, I added a few red pearls along the leaf border.

Here's the inside of the card. The sentiment here and on the front are from the new PPP set called Simple Sentiments.

These stamps couldn't be any sweeter! Thanks for stopping in,
