Pretty Pink Posh-August Release blog hop

augustbloghopHi there! Today I’m excited to be joining Pretty Pink Posh for their August release blog hop.
PPP-Camping FriendsMy first card features the adorable Camping Friends stamp set with coordinating dies. How adorable are these images? I did some subtle ink blending in the background and colored all the images with Copics.
PPP-Camping FriendsMy second card features the cute Fox & Friends stamp set with coordinating dies.
PPP-Fox Friends & Rainy DayI used one of the Scallop Border dies for the grass. The Rainy Days & Rainy Day Additions sets were also used for the umbrellas, clouds & sentiment. I inked up the umbrellas & clouds with two colors each to give them a gradient look using Mama Elephant inks.

  1. Your colouring always stuns me, all your cards look so clean and perfect. And these are both so cute – love the scenes you created in them!

  2. Hi Laura,

    I’m not sure you’ll see this or not but….

    Love your cards and videos! Thanks for your wonderful inspiration!

    I heard you say you wanted a pineapple t-shirt on yesterday’s video and I just bought one so I thought I’d send you the link. I found this person on Instagram and know it’s a small business. Love the shirt I purchased, it’s so soft!! Have a great weekend!


  3. Seriously adorable cards Laura. I love the Camping Friends set and I absolutely love these umbrellas. (I just realized I don’t own an umbrella stamp yet. LOL) TFS!

  4. I find it difficult to make cards for my husband who is a lover of all things outdoors & especially loves camping in the wild. I have now the set from PPP to use. Great cards laura.

  5. Super CUTE cards, Laura! Beautiful Copic coloring on both cards, and I love how you created those fun scenes! I’m a huge fan of Pretty Pink Posh, so I’m crossing my fingers and toes on this one 🙂

  6. These cards are too stinking cute! I didn’t think I needed these stamps at first impression. But now I’m pretty sure I do!

  7. Two adorable cards. Your coloring and blending is amazing. Love both cards but when I scrolled down and saw the foxes with umbrella’s I had to smile. That is way too cute. Fantastic job!

  13. These cards are so cute I can’t stand it!!! LOVE THEM!
    First there are the tiny little birds enjoying the campfire while the larger animals hide in the tent, and then you show me foxes protected from the rain by (really cute) umbrellas! 🙂 I love what you have created with these PPP stamps & dies!!!
