Pretty Pink Posh Spring Theme Week

Hello crafty friends! Davina here, buzzing by with a Spring themed mini slimline card. I used several cute Pretty Pink Posh products, new and older, to make this sweet little scene. 

I started by selectively cutting the largest  Slimline Scallop Frames Die to get the proportions I wanted. I like to make my mini slimline cards 6.5 x 3.5 in dimension. Which is only 2 inches shorter than a standard slimline card. This frame die is only 8 x 3, so I will trim it to 6 x 3, then add a background layer. I accomplished this by placing the top cutting mat an inch short of the edge of the die. Then I measured and marked where 6 would be, and very carefully placed the edge of the die at the marked point, while making sure the scallops fit back into the frame. I taped it in place with washi tape to avoid any slippage, and cut only that last inch. 

I watercolored a panel for the background using multiple shades of yellows and allowed that to dry before trimming it to fir the back of my frame and cutting some cute stitched hexagons using a die from the new Spring Mug Additions Die Set

I stamped several adorable bumblebees from the Bee Friends stamp set and heat embossed the sentiment in the upper area of my watercolored panel. I also stamped and colored the large jar from the Spring Jar set and the little decorative bow. I used the Spring Mug Additions Dies to cut some small flowers, leaves, and the honey dipper before coloring each item with a combination of ink blending and COPIC coloring. 

I used foam tape strips to adhere the scalloped frame to the watercolored background, the centered the whole thing onto a patterned panel that is 6.5 x 3.5. I adhered my hexagons, honey jar, bees and flowers using foam tape hot glue. Then I finished it off by adding some sparkly Wink of Stella to the bees wings.

The Greeting Farm April Blog Hop


The April 2024 New Release is now available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store. This month we introduced 3 new stamp sets. Our first set called MERMAID ANYA 2 takes us under the sea with a gorgeous Anya and her fish and sea horse friends. Next, our furry friends went on a road trip in a caravan in a set called ADVENTURE PALS. Our final set called MISS ANYA STYLE has a beautiful Anya with 4 stunning dresses.

I’m sharing a shaker card I made using the beautiful Mermaid Anya 2 stamp set. I just adore how her hair flows across her face and large coral and starfish fascinator. I combined a few images from an older set called Happy to Sea You. I adhered everything on top of a scallop scale shaker that I’ve had in my stash for years and years and I like how the beachy patterned paper peeks through from behind.
