This is a love story. No, I haven’t found Mr Perfect just yet, still looking. But if there’s one company with whose products I fell in love with the first moment I laid eyes on them, it’s Pretty Pink Posh. When I first came upon Paulina’s small venture, she was selling sequins only – and they were gorgeous.
Some may call me crazy, ordering sequins from overseas and doing so again and again, but after buying cheap sequins in the toy aisles of German stores, I wanted to have high quality ones. And PPP sequins have never disappointed, ever. And when Paulina started to add dies to her brand – of course they were nothing less than perfect and I’ve been using her products on my cards ever since.
Today, I have the incredible pleasure and joy to announce that I’m joining the Design Team of Pretty Pink Posh! I feel so honored and blessed that Paulina invited me, and looking at the wonderful gals in the DT I feel like I’m surrounded by the who-is-who of the crafting world 🙂 If you head on over to the PPP blog, there might be a fantastic GIVEAWAY waiting for you! Just saying…
To celebrate the occasion, I have created this fun card featuring many products you can find the in PPP store:
Obviously I’ve used some sequins, and I’m glad I’m buying more and more colors. You never know what you end up needing, and here I have all the colors to match the scheme of the card. I have also used the Stitched Borders 2 die, and the interactive googley eyes are also from the PPP store.
I think out of all the border dies by PPP, die is my favorite. Not only does it have a super pretty and elegant shape, it also has stitching. And I’m in love with stitching, especially on heavy and thick paper where it looks gooooooorgeous!
The coloring on the little penguin was done with my Polychromos pencils – I’m falling for them, hard. It’s such a pleasure to blend with them and to color images. Since they are pencils, I have so much control (unlike watercoloring with fluid colors) that I feel like a real pro 😉
- Pants: 129, 123, 124, 194
- Beak: 111
- Penguin: 250, 274, 199, 154
The sentiment and floral images were letterpressed using my WRMK Letterpress and the Floral plates. They are actually a two-step plate, which allowed me to have two colors in here. You can create these effects surprisingly quickly and it’s not even a huge mess.
I am looking forward to working with Paulina and the team and I hope you’ll enjoy the projects I’ll be sharing with you! And this card? Well, it would be a waste not to enter it into a few challenges, right? So off it goes to Simon Says Stamp “Anything Goes” and Cupcake Inspirations 325 “Layers” and Addicted to Stamps and More “Clean and Simple”; and last minute MUSE – the palm tree in the inspiration photo just made me grab my penguin stamp set again 🙂
Thanks for stopping by today!
