Avery Elle & Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop!

Hello!!

Welcome to my hop during this Avery Elle & Pretty Pink Posh big celebration! This is a great start of the week, with a blog hop!! Don't you think?


The previous step on the hop is the amazing Julia Altermann's blog but, in case you want to start for th begining, you should visit the Avery Elle blog :)

We are teaming up with our friends over at Pretty Pink Posh to bring you two fabulous days worth of inspiration and prizes!
There are 2 $25 Pretty Pink Posh gift certificates and 2 $25 Avery Elle gift certificates up for grabs. Winners will be picked randomly from comments posted along the blog hop. Comments must be left by July 24, 2016. Winners will be announced on the PPP and Avery Elle blogs. This is void where prohibited and you must be 18 years old or over to enter.

I have two card to share combining products from both companies. The first one uses Konnichiwa from Avery Elle and Stitched Speech Bubbles from Pretty Pink Posh.
I colored the background with Distress inks and mounted my "window" with black cardstock. The girl and branches are colored with Copic markers


My second card features With Sympathy stamps, I combined them with Peonies stamps and small and medium Clear Droplets from Pretty Pink Posh. I just adore this droplets!!

I embossed everything with white embossing powder on kraft cardstock and colored the flowers and leaves with Copic markers. I added some kraft twine and popped up the panel and, as a final touch, I added the stripes of white dots with a white gel pen.


I hope you enjoyed your visit here, the next step is Lisa Elton's blog, have fun and thank you so much for stopping by!!
